Sox cool off Cubs at home

Sox cool off Cubs at home

Tuesday's game between the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox got chippy.

Bryant pointed four times to indicate the pitch was inside before Barksdale ejected him for the first time since he was tossed in a game playing for Triple-A Iowa in 2014.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon agreed Hendricks wasn't his old self yet, but said the righty took a solid step.

"I was emotional just because we've been down and we've been looking for a victory and for our (pitcher) to give us some length", said Renteria, whose White Sox (39-57) halted a nine-game losing streak.

Israel to replace metal detectors in Jerusalem with smart surveillance
Israel's security cabinet announced early Tuesday it would remove the metal detectors and use "sophisticated technology" instead. Mladenov said it is "critically important" that the status quo which has been in place at the site since 1967 is preserved.


Lackey struck Jose Abreu in the first inning. "Just not tax the bullpen and go out there and go that long".

The Cubs were up 4-2 at the time, thanks to a three-run homer by Willson Contreras in the first off Carlos Rodon and a double by Ben Zobrist in the second. Martin had two hits and Ezequiel Carrera reached base three times as the last-place Blue Jays won the opener of a seven-game homestand.

MARLINS 4, RANGERS 0: At Arlington, Texas, Giancarlo Stanton hit more two home runs and moved into a tie for the major league lead, sending Adam Conley and Miami over Texas. He is batting.347 (25 for 72) with seven homers and 18 RBIs in 18 July games.

Said Bryant: "I know (Barksdale) is trying to do the best job he can". I'm sure the White Sox will remember this the next time he toes the rubber against them.

Israel bans Rabbi and 2 Jewish BDS activists from travelling to country
Five BDS-holes have reportedly been prevented from boarding their Washington DC flight to Israel, and they are not happy campers. JVP states on its website that it supports BDS against Israel. "Furthermore, they refused to even show us the Israeli order".


Edwards came in and struck out Tyler Saladino before making an athletic play on Melky Cabrera's comebacker for the second out. A grounder to Russell to end the inning avoided further damage.

The wiry reliever held his arms out and yelled as he left the mound after escaping the jam.

"Got me right in the hamstring, nothing wrong with that", Happ said. "That was the linchpin to victory right there". It was Bryant's third strikeout of the day, all coming with runners in scoring position. Rodon served up four home runs in the loss to the Dodgers.

The White Sox threatened again in fourth with runners at first and second after a Smith bloop hit to left. "Today we had some opportunities and just weren't able to get them in". White Sox starter Carlos Rodon hopes to find the same success he had when he faced the Cubs in 2015, when he struck out six and allowed two hits over six scoreless innings of a no-decision. In the fifth, he loaded the bases by hitting Abreu, Matt Davidson and Yoan Moncada.

Subpoena dropped against former Trump campaign chairman
The other person says that Manafort has agreed to additional interviews with the Senate intelligence committee staff. USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation sought to tip the 2016 campaign in Trump's favor.


"I feel like I only want to say something when I know for a fact", said Bryant, who believed a television replay supported his contention. "Tell Happy, my bad, apologize for that, have to buy him something nice for getting hit". Whether I intentionally did it or not, I get it on the other side.
