SOX HELD TO FIVE HITS AS RAYS WIN: Cesar Ramos and two relievers combined to five-hit the White Sox in a 4-0 win by the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday night.

Ramos (1-1) gave up all five hits over five innings in his first scoreless start of the season. He started in place of Matt Moore, who had Tommy John surgery on Tuesday.

James Loney had three hits for the Rays, who snapped a three-game losing streak. 

White Sox starter John Danks (2-1) struggled with his command and a high pitch count. He allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out four, walked four and threw a career-high 123 pitches.

The White Sox placed third baseman Conor Gillaspie on the 15-day disabled list due to a left hand contusion

BREWERS TOP CUBS: Jeff Bianchi had a two-run single, and Marco Estrada threw 7 2/3 strong innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past the Cubs 5-3 on Saturday night.

Bianchi went 2 for 4, entering the game as a pinch-hitter in the first for Jean Segura, who was hit in the head in the dugout by a bat.

A TV replay showed the All-Star getting hit on the right side of the head during a warmup swing by teammate Ryan Braun, who was facing the field on the top steps of the dugout while Segura was coming up behind him.

Bianchi drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single in the second off Cubs starter Travis Wood (1-3).

Estrada (2-1) had nine strikeouts.

Francisco Rodriguez tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his 11th save.

Before the game, the Cubs have placed struggling reliever Jose Veras on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

LOGANO'S LATE MOVE GETS HIM VICTORY AT RICHMOND: Joey Logano took advantage of a three-car duel by sneaking below the trio to take the lead Saturday night, outrunning former champions Matt Kenseth, Jeff Gordon and Brad Keslowski to win at Richmond International Raceway.

Logano's first career victory on the 0.75-mile oval came seemingly from nowhere after a restart with nine laps to go. He sat fourth and on the outside with Kenseth leading, Dale Earnhardt Jr. alongside in second and Gordon on the inside in third, in prime position to sneak underneath the leader and grab the victory.

Instead, when Gordon, Kenseth and Keselowski raced in a triangle jockeying for position, Logano went underneath all three with three laps to go and then held off Gordon for his fifth career victory.

POWER WINS THIRD POLE FOR ALABAMA INDYCAR RACE: Will Power won the pole position for the third time at Barber Motorsports Park.

The two-time Barber winner posted the time to beat fairly early Saturday in Fast Six qualifying for today's IndyCar's Indy Grand Prix of Alabama.

James Hinchcliffe starts second after sitting out the final few minutes, followed by defending champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, Josef Newgarden, Scott Dixon and Helio Castroneves.

Power and fellow Team Penske driver Castroneves combined to claim the pole and the win in each of the first three years at the track.

The Fast Six was dominated by big teams with Penske, Chip Ganassi and Andretti Autosport starting up front.

Around the horn

Seung-Yul Noh became the first player to complete 54 holes at the TPC Louisiana without a bogey and strung together three birdies late in his round Saturday to surge two strokes ahead of Keegan Bradley atop the Zurich Classic leaderboard.
