Looks like all the WhiteSox needed to get healthy was...the worst team in the AL. Either way, I'll take the sweep. The schedule is pretty friendly in August and Sept for the Sox with 12 games vs KC, and 9 more vs MN. I still think the Tigers have the edge in the AL Central race, but I'm not counting the sox out yet....

Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is making his major league debut.

So far so good. He's faced 13 major league hitters and struck out 7 of them. Plus, he's batting 1.000 with 2 hits including a double

Also making his debut, Pirates Outfielder Sterling Marte

He only homered on the first major league pitch that he saw. He also singled in 3 other at bats.

Cardinals have homered in five straight innings. Off the same pitcher. I wonder if that's a record.

From Elias: The Cardinals homered in each of the 1st 5 innings. This is the first time in Cardinals history they have homered in each of the first 5 innings. The last team to HR in each of 1st 5 innings was Houston against Colorado on October, 2, 2004. This is the first time in Cubs history they have allowed a HR in each of the first 5 innings.
From Elias: Travis Wood allowed a HR in each of the first 5 innings. This is the first time in MLB history that a starting pitcher allowed a HR in each of the first 5 innings of a game.
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs - Recap - July 27, 2012 - ESPN

Not the first time a team has hit home runs in each of the first five innings, but the first time it has been done off the same pitcher.
