Cubs shortstop Addison Russell left today's game with a left heel contusion. He fouled a ball off his foot in his first at-bat of Saturday's game. He played through it yesterday but apparently it tightened up on him, so he's taking the rest of the day off.

The Yankees just turned a really slick 4-1-5 double play to end the eighth. Starlin Castro and Mark Teixeira both dove for a Ramiro Pena grounder in the 3-4 hole. Castro came up with it and fired to pitcher Chad Green covering first. Green then fired to third, and Chase Headley scooped the throw before applying a tag on Mac Williamson.

White Sox GM remains confident in Sale

Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn says Chris Sale cutting up the White Sox's throwback uniforms does not change the team's opinion that they can win multiple championships with the pitcher.
