Jays Complete Sweep Of Cardinals; Sox & Cubs Lose; Danks On DL

>>Romero, Jays Blank Cards

(St. Louis, MO)  --  Ricky Romero essentially beat the Cardinals single-handedly with a four-hit shutout and a two-run single, as the Toronto Blue Jays completed a sweep of St. Louis with a 5-0 victory.  Romero retired the first 10 batters he faced and allowed only one runner to get past first base.  The left-hander walked two, struck out five, and his a two-run hit highlighted a four-run sixth inning.  St. Louis dropped to 3-and-12 in its last 15 games.  Kyle McClellan gave up all five runs over five-and-a-third innings to take the loss.  The Cards send Kyle Lohse [[ Lowsh ]] to the bump tomorrow as they begin a three-game set with the Orioles.

>>Royals Double Up Cubs

(Kansas City, MO)  --  Alex Gordon led a balanced attack, going 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI, as the Royals downed the Cubs, 6-3.  Kansas City won the final two games in the three-game interleague set.  Geovany Soto belted his second home run in as many games and added an RBI double, but it wasn't enough, as the Cubs dropped their seventh consecutive interleague series.  Randy Wells was knocked around for six runs and 10 hits over six-plus innings to take the loss.  Chicago has lost six of its last eight games.  The Cubs are making up a game against the Rockies tonight with Matt Garza on the hill.

>>Nats Nip White Sox

(Chicago, IL)  --  Danny Espinosa belted a two-run homer in the seventh to lift the Nationals to a 2-1 win over the White Sox.  Jerry Hairston Jr. had two hits for Washington, which took two-of-three in the series and has won 13-of-15 overall.  Livan Hernandez struck out nine over six-and-two-thirds innings of one-run ball to improve to 5-and-8.  Drew Storen earned his 19th save.  The Nats picked up the win in their last game under interim manager John McLaren, who will be replaced by Davey Johnson on Monday.  Philip Humber took a no-hitter into the sixth, but allowed the two-run blast in his six-and-two-thirds innings of work to fall to 7-and-4.  Chicago has dropped six-of-11 overall.  The White sox open a three-game set in Colorado Tuesday with Gavin Floyd on the hill opposite Jason Hammel.

>>Danks Lands On DL

(Chicago, IL)  --  White Sox starter John Danks was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, one day after he left his start in the second inning with a strained right oblique.  In 15 starts this season, Danks is 3-and-8 with a 4.21 earned run average, 65 strikeouts and 28 walks.  To fill the roster spot, the White Sox recalled pitcher Hector Santiago from Double-A Birmingham.  Santiago split time this season between Birmingham and Single-A Winston-Salem, going a combined 6-and-5 with a 4.08 ERA and 73 strikeouts in 14 starts.
