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.

Even with three errors, the Houston Astros managed to beat the Chicago White Sox 11-7 Sunday. Matt Dominguez hit a two-run homer and a tiebreaking RBI double, and the Astros tied their season high with 17 hits as they prevented a three-game sweep. Second baseman Jose Altuve made a pair of errors and first baseman Jon Singleton had one, with each infielder allowing a grounder through his legs. ”It was nice to go out there and get a win like that.” Chicago fell behind 4-0 early and tied the score 7-all in the sixth on Alexei Ramirez’s RBI double, Jose Abreu’s run-scoring single and a run-scoring two-out grounder by Dayan Viciedo that went Altuve’s legs for Houston’s second error of the inning.

Oakland general manager Billy Beane acted boldly, trading top prospect Addison Russell in a deal that brought starters Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Athletics. Then it was Jerry Dipoto’s turn. The GM of the Los Angeles Angels acquired closer Huston Street on Friday night, giving his team another option in the late innings and adding more intrigue to an already-spirited AL West race. The A’s have baseball’s best record, but the Angels are only 1 1/2 games behind, and both teams have aggressively improved themselves with major trades since the beginning of July.

The New York Yankees came out swinging Sunday in response to a story that ran in the New York Post that tickets for Derek Jeter’s Yankee Stadium farewell game on Sept. 7 have skyrocketed in price. While the Post reported that the ticket hikes are occurring on the secondary market — that is, for resale on ticket-broker sites — the newspaper also wrote that the Yankees “hiked the cheapest tickets on its Web site from $16 to $250 before quickly selling out.” The Yankees released a statement Sunday that the team has not and will not increase ticket prices for games this season. “The New York Yankees have not, did not, and will not raise any ticket prices for the game to be played in Yankee Stadium on September 7, or for that matter, any other game to be played at Yankee Stadium this season,” the statement read.

It was the best and the worst of life as a major league ball girl all wrapped up in one play.
On one hand, the ball girl stationed along the right field line at Fenway Park on Friday night got to be part of the action, impressively fielding Kansas City Royals slugger Eric Hosmer’s well hit grounder with millions of people watching. On the other hand, she somehow missed the fact that the ball crossed over first base in fair territory, meaning she had just interfered with a live play.
Based on her priceless reaction, she seemed at least hopeful that the players, umpires, the 37,743 fans at Fenway Park and perhaps millions watching at home had simultaneously looked in the other direction. Immediately after realizing what she’d done, she innocently dropped the ball and calmly moved away from the evidence. Unfortunately, everybody was still watching, and there wasn’t a place nearly big enough to hide.

Rubby De La Rosa looks pretty cozy at Fenway Park.

De La Rosa (3-2) gave up one run and five hits, walking four and striking out two.
