Highlights:  Yoán Moncada scampered home on a 10th-inning wild pitch that knocked down umpire Cory Blaser, sending the Chicago White Sox to a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers  on Saturday. All three runs in the game were scored on wild pitches. Romy González opened the White Sox 10th with a sacrifice against José Cisnero (2-1), moving automatic runner Moncada to third. After Yasmani Grandal bounced to second and Gavin Sheets was walked intentionally, Jake Burger was hit by a pitch. It was originally ruled a foul ball, and then the call was overturned after a challenge. Tim Anderson  was at the plate when Cisnero threw a first-pitch fastball that hit Blaser right in the face mask.

Chicago CubsChicago Cubs 0 – San Diego Padres 6

Highlights:  Yu Darvish struck out nine in seven dominant innings, Fernando Tatis Jr. homered twice and the San Diego Padres beat the Chicago Cubs 6-0 on Saturday night.  “This is as good as stuff we have seen him have all year,” San Diego manager Bob Melvin said. “He used his fastball more today, more curveball, the split, then went to kind of his cutters and sliders a little bit later, so he really kept them off-balanced.” Darvish (4-4) rebounded from a May 28 outing at the New York Yankees when he gave up seven runs in 2 2/3 innings in a 10-7 loss.
