Jeff Samardzija got a no-decision despite limiting the Blue Jays to one unearned run in 7 innings as the White Sox pulled out a win in 10 innings on Wednesday.
Samardzija scattered eight hits and a walk while striking out five. The lone run scored in the seventh on a Josh Donaldson sacrifice fly. After a rough April, Samardzija has mostly pitched well in May, lowering his ERA to 3.84 with a 1.25 WHIP and a 54/13 K/BB ratio in 68 innings. He'll face the Rangers in a road start next.
Dodgers recalled OF Chris Heisey from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Heisey has been up and down all season and probably won't play enough to carry fantasy relevance in NL-only leagues. His longest stay in the majors this year lasted five days.
Josh Donaldson hit another clutch home run, tying the game at 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth, but the Blue Jays lost in 10 innings to the White Sox on Wednesday.
On Tuesday night, Donaldson hit a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth off of closer David Robertson. He victimized Robertson again on Wednesday, hitting a game-tying solo home run in the bottom of the ninth. Donaldson finished 1-for-4 on the afternoon. He now has 13 home runs, 35 RBI, and a .314/.374/.590 triple-slash line.
Dodgers designated RHP Sergio Santos for assignment.
Los Angeles needed to clear out a 40-man roster spot following the six-player Juan Uribe trade, and Santos was the odd man out. The 31-year-old right-hander had registered a 4.73 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 15/7 K/BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings this season for the Dodgers.
Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a triple and a two-run double as the White Sox beat the Blue Jays in 10 innings on Wednesday.
Abreu started the scoring, knocking in two with a double off of Marco Estrada in the third inning. He set up the White Sox to take the lead in the 10th inning with a leadoff triple. He then scored on an Adam LaRoche single. Abreu is batting .284/.346/.497 on the year with eight home runs and 29 RBI.
Andrew Miller shut the Royals down in order in the ninth inning, picking up his 14th save as the Yankees won 4-1 on Wednesday.
Miller got consecutive ground outs from Omar Infante and Paulo Orlando before getting Alcides Escobar to line out to end the contest. The lefty is still perfect in 14 save opportunities with a 0.84 ERA and a 34/9 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings.
Michael Pineda pitched well in a win on Wednesday, limiting the Royals to one run in 6 2/3 innings of work.
The only run came in the first inning on a Mike Moustakas solo home run. Pineda allowed only six hits total along with a walk and eight strikeouts. The right-hander moves to 6-2 on the year with a 3.36 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP, and a 67/5 K/BB ratio in 64 1/3 innings. Pineda will face his former team in the Mariners at Safeco Field in his next outing.
Chris Young suffered his first loss of the season, yielding four runs in six innings versus the Yankees on Wednesday.
Young entered the start having allowed just two runs (one earned) in 22 2/3 innings as a starter. Home runs hurt him on Wednesday, allowing a solo shot to Brian McCann in the second inning and a three-run blast in the third to Alex Rodriguez. They accounted for two of seven hits on the afternoon along with two walks and seven strikeouts. Now 4-1 with a 1.55 ERA, a 0.86 WHIP, and a 30/11 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings, Young will try to bounce back in a home start against the Indians.
