Brian Dozier hit a two-run bomb in a win over the Rays on Saturday.

His longball off reliever Tommy Hunter broke open a tie game in the eighth inning and his club would hold on to win the game. Dozier went 1-for-3 and walked twice in the contest. He has a .255 batting average with seven homers, 22 runs, 19 RBI and seven steals. He has been caught stealing five times. He will need to pick up the pace if he wants to come anywhere close to the 42 dingers he hit last year.

Updating an earlier report, Ben Zobrist is out with a sore wrist.

Rookie Ian Happ is spelling him at second base Saturday against the Dodgers but Zobrist should be available off the bench. Consider him day-to-day.

Colby Rasmus went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a loss against the Twins on Saturday.

He did not start the game because the Twins were starting a left-hander. He was called upon to pinch-hit for Peter Bourjos leading off the seventh inning. He grounded out in that at-bat and then hit the home run in the ninth inning off Twins closer Brandon Kintzler. Rasmus missed the first month of the season with a hip injury but has played well since being activated. He is batting .254/.315/.582 with six homers and 15 RBI in 67 at-bats.

Jake Odorizzi gave up two runs on seven hits and took a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

The first run scored on a sacrifice fly in the second inning, and the second run scored on an Eddie Rosario solo shot in the fourth frame. Odorizzi burned through a lot of pitches while walking four and fanning four, and had to be lifted from the game after throwing 118 pitches. He has a cool 3.14 ERA with 41 strikeouts and 14 walks in 48 2/3 innings spread over nine starts.

David Robertson struck out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning to earn a save in a 3-0 victory over the Tigers in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

He punched out Andrew Romine and Alex Avila before inducing Miguel Cabrera to ground out to end the game. It was Robertson's sixth save of the campaign. He owns a 2.50 ERA with 26 strikeouts and six walks in 18 innings. He remains a candidate to be traded as the White Sox fade from contention.
May 27 - 5:50 PM

Tyler Danish earned his first major league win by tossing five shutout innings against the Tigers on Saturday.

He was called up from Triple-A to start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. He showed some jitters by walking three batters in the first inning but escaped with the help of a double play. Danish showed a very low strikeout rate in the minors yet was able to punch out six batters today. He gave up just three hits and issued six free passes. He pitched three games in relief for the White Sox last year in his first brief cup of coffee in the major leagues. It is not clear if Danish will be sent back down to Triple-A Charlotte or if he will take over the injured Dylan Covey's slot in the rotation.
May 27 - 5:45 PM

Todd Frazier is not in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

Frazier went 0-for-4 in the opener, dropping his season average to a dismal .184. Matt Davidson will man third base and bat fifth against Tigers starter Buck Farmer in the nightcap.
May 27 - 5:42 PM

Matt Carpenter is not in the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

The slumping Carpenter has hit just .151 over his last eight games (5-for-33). Jedd Gyorko will fill in at first base and bat fifth Saturday against Rockies hurler Kyle Freeland.
