An impressive start from Hector Noesi was just a couple of pitches away from being something really special. Noesi allowed three hits over 7 2-3 innings, and Adam Eaton had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night. Alexei Ramirez added two hits and an RBI for Chicago, and Jake Petricka went one inning to earn his fifth save in six chances. ”But everything was working today.” Phil Hughes (10-7) gave up two runs and four hits and struck out four for the Twins.

The day after the Detroit Tigers traded for Texas Rangers closer Joakim Soria, Joe Nathan made a point of showing why he is still manager Brad Ausmus’ No. 1 option in the ninth inning. Nathan struck out the side on 12 pitches to secure Max Scherzer’s 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series between two of the top three teams in the majors. The six-time All-Star posted his 21st save in 26 chances after Joba Chamberlain gave up a run on Josh Hamilton’s sacrifice fly in the eighth. It’s up to Brad to make decisions like that, so I’m just going to go out and compete when they allow me to.” Nick Castellanos drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a double in the sixth inning against Garrett Richards and Scherzer won his fourth straight decision.

The team recalled outfielder Marc Krauss from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take his place on the roster. Astros manager Bo Porter and the team had originally said Springer’s issue was with his right leg.

Jose Bautista provided the power and R.A Dickey earned the win, but two perfect innings from promising rookie Aaron Sanchez was all anyone in the Toronto Blue Jays’ clubhouse wanted to talk about. Bautista homered and drove in two runs, Dickey won for the first time in three starts and Toronto beat the Boston Red Sox 6-4 on Wednesday night. Selected from Triple-A Buffalo one day earlier, Sanchez came on to face Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli in the seventh inning, right after Toronto had scored twice to take a 5-4 lead.

About the only pitch that Chris Sale wouldn’t make Monday night was his case for the American League’s Cy Young Award. Sale pitched seven effective innings in his first outing since the All-Star break and Adam Dunn had two RBIs and scored a run to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 3-1 victory over the slumping Kansas City Royals on Monday night.

If the Chicago White Sox have Gordon Beckham on the trade block, the veteran second baseman’s current slump can’t be helping his market value. After going 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly in Chicago’s 3-1 win Monday night against the Kansas City Royals, Beckham is just 4-for-51 (.078) in his past 12 games. “I think it seems a little closer than it has in the last couple of weeks,” White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. After starting the year on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained oblique muscle, Beckham got off to a solid start once he returned.

Despite their major-league best record, the Oakland Athletics haven’t been an impressive offensive team in July. They may be on the way to changing that after their last game, however, and they’ve put together some impressive hitting displays against the Houston Astros this season. Oakland also looks to continue its outstanding pitching when it sends Scott Kazmir to the mound to open a three-game home series with the Astros on Tuesday night. Despite its July slump, Oakland is second in the majors with 4.95 runs per game and has won 10 of 14 after taking two of three from the AL East-leading Orioles.
