However, the Cubs made a big move Thursday morning by acquiring Jose Quintana, the White Sox's top starter, for top prospect Eloy Jimenez and three other minor-leaguers.

Rick Hahn's front office shipped out the team's best pitcher earlier this week in a shocking crosstown swap that sent the 2016 All-Star hurler to the Cubs in exchange for that organization's top two prospects.

Quintana was outstanding in striking out 12 Orioles over seven innings while surrendering only three hits without issuing a walk.

Sunday's 7-6 loss to the visiting Seattle Mariners ended a sweep at Guaranteed Rate Field, the White Sox 0-3 in their first three games after Quintana was traded.

Rizzo hit his 22nd home run in the ninth off Darren O'Day.

The Cubs scored 4 runs on hits from Happ, Heyward, and Zobrist. He hasn't gotten past the fifth inning in 10 of those starts.

Montgomery is 0-0 with an 0.00 ERA over three innings in two career games against Baltimore, both coming past year. Sierra set a club record with a hit in the first nine games of his major league career with his performance on Sunday. Adam Lind and Jose Lobaton added two-run shots and Anthony Rendon had a solo homer, his third home run in two games, to help the Nationals to their fourth consecutive victory.

As for Jimenez, he has been inconsistent throughout the season.

A YANKEES, RED SOX split: C.C. Sabathia (8-3) allowed two hits over six innings, and visiting NY won 3-0 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

Now, Chicago will try for more offense when the defending World Series champions continue a three-game series with Baltimore. He took that home run away. Russell responded when he hit a first-pitch, 96 miles per hour fastball off Brad Brach (2-2) over the left field fence. Lester is looking to bounce back from his last outing when he allowed 10 runs (four earned) in 2/3 of an inning - the shortest start of his 12-year career.

Kevin Gausman gave up six runs (five earned) in 4.0 innings against the Twins on July 7, taking a no-decision. He fell to 8-4 in 15 interleague starts for the Orioles and 15-11 in 33 starts overall against the opposing league.

YANKEES 3-0, RED SOX 0-3 Mookie Betts hit a two-run home run and Jackie Bradley Jr. went over the bullpen wall to steal one from Aaron Judge, helping David Price shut down NY and giving host Boston a split of the day-night doubleheader. By then, the Orioles trailed 8-2.

He is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in his only career appearance against the Cubs, and that was in 2014. Chicago has lost four in a row. The rest all were hit with runners on base. Ubaldo Jimenez will start the finale and is 4-4 with a 6.67 ERA and 72 strikeouts this season. Bud Norris got Tim Beckham to ground into a double play for his 14th save, ending Tampa Bay's four-game winning streak.
