Rays beat Tigers 6-3
(DETROIT) - With the bases loaded and nobody out, Tampa Bay's Brad Boxberger came out of the bullpen hoping for a strikeout and a double play. The order didn't much matter. Evan Longoria homered, Ben Zobrist doubled twice and the Rays finally broke through offensively against Detroit, but it was Boxberger's relief work that preserved a 6-3 victory over the Tigers on Friday night. Tampa Bay was up 5-2 when he came on in the sixth inning. Torii Hunter hit into a double play, bringing home another run. Then Boxberger struck out Don Kelly to end the inning. Boxberger struck out two more in a perfect seventh before exiting the game. The 26 year old right-hander now has 51 strikeouts in 33 1/3 innings this year. Alex Cobb (4-6) allowed three runs and five hits in five-plus innings for the Rays, and their bullpen allowed only one baserunner. Detroit's Drew Smyler (4-8) allowed five runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. There were three hit batsmen, and umpires warned both benches in the sixth. After the warnings, Rays manager Joe Maddon argued and was ejected. Detroit's AL Central lead over Kansas City fell to four games. Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez left in the eighth because of back irritation.


White Sox top Seattle 7-1
(CHICAGO) – Chris Sale lost his chance at a shutout. He still had a shot at a complete game. After allowing a single, a double and a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, Sale buckled down. He got a weak grounder to seal the victory as the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 7-1 on Friday night. Sale (8-1) struck out a season-high 12 and allowed six hits and no walks in his fourth double-digit strikeout game of the season and 14th of his career. He struck out 10 three times this season. Jose Abreu hit his 27th home run and Dayan Viciedo and Paul Konerko also homered for the White Sox, who have won five of seven. Viciedo went 4 for 4 including a leadoff homer in the fourth inning that gave the White Sox a 1-0 lead. His 10th homer came on a 2-1 pitch. The White Sox added four runs in the fifth. Adam Eaton hit and RBI double and Gordon Beckham followed with a scrifice fly after Moises Sierra singled and Tyler Flower was hit by a pitch.

Cubs beat Nationals 7-2, trade Hammel and Samardzija
(WASHINGTON, DC) – Jason Hammel earned another victory for the Chicago Cubs, and that part of his Friday afternoon was very satisfying. However, Hammel was frustrated about being taken out early. He pitched six-plus innings, and Justin Ruggiano homered for the second straight game, leading the Cubs to a 7-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. Just hours later, Hammel and fellow Chicago right-hander Jeff Samardzija were key parts of a trade agreement between the Cubs and Oakland Athletics. The teams reached agreement on a deal that would send Samardzija and Hammel to Oakland for three top-line prospects in a surprising trade by baseball's top team two people with knowledge of the deal said Friday night. The people, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal was still pending, said the A's will send top prospect Addison Russell, outfielder Billy McKinney and pitcher Dan Straily to the Cubs. An official announcement will likely not happen until Saturday. The trade is a rare move under general manager Billy Beane in which Oakland, one of baseball's most frugal franchises, parted with talented young prospects for proven players to chase a World Series title. The A's are a major league-best 53-33 after beating Toronto 1-0 in 12 innings Friday.
