August cruel to Jeff Samardzija, kind to Carlos Rodon

Expanded roster in September affords a break to starters, but Shark might need it more than anybody With his laborious loss against the Mariners on Saturday night, Jeff Samardzija closed out a month to forget. Or burn. Or flush. Samardzija went 0-6 with an 8.82 ERA over his six August starts, turning in the first six-loss month by a White Sox starter since John Danks, who went 0-6 with a 7.62 ERA in August of 2007. A few things come to mind there: No. 1: Samardzija's ERA (4.87) is now higher than Danks' (4.82) with one month remaining. No. 2: Danks was entering the tail end of his rookie...

Mariners 2, White Sox 0: Solo shots spoil John Danks' night

Taijuan Walker spearheads four-hit shutout in rematch from Sunday When John Danks and Taijuan Walker squared off in Seattle this past Sunday, Danks fell early, Walker crumbled later, and the Mariners held on for the victory in an 8-6 slobberknocker. This time, Danks limited the damage to two solo homers over six innings in a respectable showing. It just happened to be two runs too many, as Walker, Carson Smith and Tom Wilhelmsen combined for a four-hit shutout. Kyle Seager broke the tie leading off the sixth. Geovany Soto called for a fastball away to the lefty hitter, Danks hit the wrong...

Angels 5, White Sox 3: Grounded by Garrett Richards

John Danks settles down after two first-inning homers, but offense can't make up early deficit John Danks had one of his classic starts, which is not to be confused with a gem. He surrendered homers to Kole Calhoun and Albert Pujols in the first inning to put the White Sox down 3-0, yet somehow finished seven innings, although the Angels bled him for two more runs on groundouts to third that Tyler Saladino couldn't convert. Danks gave the White Sox a puncher's chance to get back in it, but the offense only had jabs in their arsenal when they could've used a haymaker. A big part of it was...
