Cubs 9, Rangers 2
(Chicago, IL) -- Scott Feldman had every reason to be pumped Monday night. The right-hander was coming off his first complete game and facing his former team, the Rangers, who he started with back in 2003.
One of the reasons Feldman signed with the Cubs was the chance to be a full-time starter, something he couldn't do with Texas. If he had something to prove, he did so calmly, following the same game plan he did against the Padres in his last start, and now the right-hander leads the Cubs in wins.
Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo both hit two-run singles in a five-run fourth and Rizzo added a two-run home run in the eighth to back Feldman, who helped himself with an RBI single, to give the Cubs a 9-2 victory over the Rangers.
White Sox 2, Royals 1
(Kansas City, Kan.) -- Jordan Danks entered Monday's game as a pinch-runner in the ninth inning. But in the end, it was his bat that provided the key contribution to a comeback victory the White Sox sorely needed.
Danks struck a big-time blow in the 11th inning with a 413-foot homer to right-center off Kelvin Herrera that lifted Chicago to a 2-1 victory over the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.
