Highlights of Saturday's Major League Baseball games: - - White Sox 12, Tigers 3 Adam LaRoche hit a three-run homer in the third inning and Jose Abreu belted a grand slam one inning later, while Chris Sale allowed four hits over six innings to lead Chicago to a onesided victory over Detroit that was only the Tigers' second defeat in 11 games this season. The left-handed Sale (2-0) walked one, struck out six and benefited from Chicago's biggest offensive outburst of the season. Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez (1-2) was roughed up for four runs in the third inning and five in the fourth as he gave up nine hits and walked two in 3 1/3 innings.
Batters aren't struggling to get hits off Stephen Strasburg, much unlike the past two years - when he regularly victimized the Philadelphia Phillies. The Washington Nationals right-hander could get on the right track Sunday by continuing his mastery of the Phillies, who have had trouble hitting most pitchers entering the finale of a four-game series in the nation's capital. His 0.99 ERA against Philadelphia during that span was easily his best against any NL opponent, going 4-0 in eight starts with 69 strikeouts in 54 2-3 innings. The Phillies hit .198 against Strasburg in those two years.
Runs have been hard to come by this week for the Philadelphia Phillies. They got a big one courtesy Saturday of Ben Revere's speed. Odubel Herrera had three hits and scored twice to back Aaron Harang, and the Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 5-3 Saturday to stop a six-game losing streak. With the score 3-all in the seventh, Ryan Howard walked, Revere pinch ran and went home without the benefit of a hit.

Max Scherzer kept the Phillies' lineup guessing even though he faced them earlier in the week. Scherzer pitched eight strong innings to get his first win with the Nationals and Bryce Harper hit a three-run homer as Washington beat the reeling Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 on Friday night. Danny Espinosa also homered and Ryan Zimmerman added a two-run double to help the Nationals get their third straight win. ''He's a bulldog out there.''

Take a look around the league with Big League Stew's daily wrap up. We'll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. The Toronto Blue Jays lost more than just the game Thursday. They also lost their shortstop. Jose Reyes left the contest after just one inning. Reyes, who has been battling an oblique injury early in the season, aggravated the issue during his first at-bat. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball: Sign up and join a league today! ] Reyes was retired on a ground ball to second base, and was seen visibly upset in the dugout following the play. He threw his helmet down in anger before walking back to the clubhouse. Reyes will miss the next three games due to the issue. There's still a chance he'll wind up being placed on the 15-day disabled list, but it depends on how much the injury recovers over the next couple days. The injury only bothers Reyes when he hits from the left side. He said he's been dealing with pain since April 10, but things got worse Thursday, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com. "I was playing through it, but I feel like yesterday, and today, it kind of got worse," Reyes said. "I kind of backed off a little bit, because that's dangerous." Reyes' injury was the first loss for the Blue Jays, but not the last. The team was dominated by Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer during the contest. Archer gave up just two hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out 11 Blue Jays. Toronto was eventually able to score two runs, but it was not enough. The Rays took the matchup 4-2. Archer improved to 2-1 with the win. AARON HILL COMES THROUGH IN EXTRAS Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Aaron Hill finished off the San Francisco Giants on Thursday, hitting the game-winning double in the 12th inning. The Diamondbacks took a 4-3 lead into the ninth, but closer Addison Reed couldn't nail down the save. Reed allowed a leadoff single, but was quickly able to grab two outs against the next two hitters. With the Giants down to their final chance, Joe Panik managed an RBI triple, extending the game. Arizona answered right back, as A.J. Pollock hit a solo shot in the 10th inning. The Giants refused to go quietly, however, as Matt Duffy tied the game in the bottom of the inning with an RBI single. Aaron Hill would finally come through with the game-winning knock in the 12th. With two men on base, Hill doubled both runs home, giving the D-Backs a 7-5 lead. The Giants would scratch one run across the plate in the bottom half of the inning, but couldn't complete the come back. HOME RUNS SINK HAMELS AGAIN
