Chicago Cubs 3 – Milwaukee Brewers 6
Highlights: Jett Bandy and Domingo Santana hit two-run singles, helping the Brewers to a 6-3 rain-interrupted victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday. Bandy walked and scored on Orlando Arcia‘s bases-loaded infield single for a 4-3 lead in the fifth. The game was delayed 1 hour, 59 minutes in the top of the sixth, and Santana boosted the lead with his single just after the delay. Arcia had three hits and an RBI for the NL Central leaders, who won for the 10th time in 12 games. Chicago dropped to 21-20 as Cubs pitchers walked 10. Wily Perlata (5-2) struck out five over two scoreless innings after a shaky start by Paolo Espino in his major league debut. Carlos Torres worked the ninth for his first save in three chances.
Chicago White Sox 2 – Seattle Mariners 1
Highlights: Even eight innings of one-hit pitching wasn’t enough to earn Jose Quintana a win, though it put the White Sox in position to get one. Melky Cabrera doubled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the top of the 10th inning to lift Chicago to a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night. Quintana became just the second pitcher in the majors to pitch at least eight innings, allow just one hit and end up with a no-decision. Jose Abreu hit a solo homer in the sixth inning for the White Sox. The only hit Quintana allowed was a second-inning leadoff triple to Danny Valencia, who scored on Ben Gamel‘s sacrifice fly to center and gave Seattle an early 1-0 lead. Mariners reliever Tony Zych (2-1) hit Kevan Smith with a pitch to lead off the 10th. Smith was replaced by pinch-runner Leury Garcia, who advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt and groundout before scoring on Cabrera’s double.
