So despite all the rumors, none of the MOTs moved prior to the non-waiver trade deadline yesterday at 4 p.m.

Brad Goldberg had the best outing of his young Major League career, getting his ERA under 10 thanks to two innings of scoreless relief in which he gave up one hit, walked one, and struck out one. The Chicago White Sox scored twice in the bottom of the ninth to beat the visiting Toronto Blue Jays (49-57), 7-6. In fact, the Pale Hose scored all their runs over the last three frames to overcome the six-run deficit. Kevin Pillar was 1-for-3 with a run scored.

Busy night for Alex Bregman. He singled, doubled (#25), walked once, stole his 10th base, scored three runs, and drove in two, one coming on a sacrifice fly, as the Houston Astros (69-36) beat the visiting Tamp Bay Rays, 14-7.

Ian Kinsler was 1-for-5 as the Detroit Tigers (47-57) lost to the host NY Yankees, 8-3.

Danny Valencia was 1-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI as the Seattle Mariners (54-43) beat the host Texas Rangers, 6-4.

Richard Bleier did not appear for the Baltimore Orioles (51-54) in their 2-1 win over the visiting KC Royals.

Ryan Lavarnway did not appear for the Oakland As (47-59) in their 8-5 win over the visiting San Francisco Giants.

Ryan Braun‘s, Joc Pederson‘s and Scott Feldman‘s teams had the day off.
