The first thing I notice this morning is that the Dodgers have named non-roster second baseman Stefan Jarrin as the player to named later in the Victorino trade.
In Chicago Friday night, in what could be his final appearance of 2012, Gavin Floyd battled his way through 5 innings despite walking 6 hitters, and picked up the win in the Sox' 3-1 victory over the Rays. Gavin (11-12, 4.47) allowed just 2 hits and 1 run scored, as the White Sox pulled to within 1 game of Detroit for the AL Central lead.
The win was #67 for HomeSiders in the majors this season.
In Toronto, the Yankees stayed on top in the AL East, with an 11-4 win over the Jays. Anthony Gose (.224) had an RBI double in the game for the Blue Jays. New York still leads Baltimore, 9-1 winners against Boston, by 1 game........In Miami, the Marlin walked off against the Phillies, with a 2-1 win. Darin Ruf (.375) and Carlos Ruiz (.324) had a hit each for the Phillies...........In Phoenix, the Diamondbacks beat the Cubs, 8-3. Adrian Cardenas grounded out as a pinch hitter in the 7th inning for Chicago.
Congratulations to Reds pitcher Homer Bailey, who tossed a no-hitter in Pittsburgh. It was the 7th no-hitter in the major leagues this year!
