CHICAGO -- Carlos Rodon was so disgusted with a start earlier in the season he tossed his glove into the stands. It got worse when he sprained his left wrist slipping on the dugout steps as he rushed out for the national anthem.After missing nearly a month, Rodon is starting to show why he was the third overall pick in the 2014 draft with hopes of joining fellow lefty starters Chris Sale and Jose Quintana atop the White Sox rotation.Rodon threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings, Jose Abreu homered for a third straight game and Chicago beat the slumping Philadelphia Phillies 9-1 on Tuesday night.Its building up trying to get to Q and Sale, Rodon said. Those guys are very good, top-line starters. Of the left-handers in the game, theyre probably the two best. Id love to be like that.Rodon (4-8) allowed three hits and has a 1.46 ERA in his past four starts after missing most of July. His fastball was consistently at 96 mph and he even worked on a new backdoor slider.Everything he does has effort, and its strength, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. When he has it going on it looks really good. He doesnt need to get away from his strength and physicality is one of them. When he picks around and throws soft stuff hes not as effective.Abreu hit a two-run home run and Justin Morneau followed with a solo shot in the fifth off Jake Thompson (1-3), who gave up seven runs and eight hits in five innings.Adam Eaton tripled, singled and scored twice and Tim Anderson tripled, reached base three times and drove in a run as Chicago built a 9-0 lead in its third straight win.Freddy Galvis hit his 13th home run off Chris Beck in the seventh to end a 17-inning scoreless streak for the Phillies, who have dropped five of seven.Abreu hit 36 homers while winning AL Rookie of the Year in 2014 and 30 last year. Hes up to 17 as he heats up after struggling much of the season. Abreu has five homers and 11 RBI in his past 16 games despite a sore hamstring.This is as good as hes looked all year as far as not chasing stuff, Ventura said.The Phillies, playing on Chicagos South Side for the first time since 2004, managed five hits while Thompson allowed five extra-base hits and four walks in his fourth big league start.The right-hander has yet to pitch past the fifth inning and saw his ERA swell to 9.78. Thompson has walked 13 in 19 1/3 innings.He relies a lot on command, and he hasnt shown that, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. I attribute a lot of that to his youth and inexperience.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: SS prospect J.P.

Now, correct me if Im wrong but I saw one official distinctly pointing at the net indicating a good goal but after an inconclusive review they overturned the goal.

MADISON, Wis. -- Another week, another key injury for Wisconsins defense.The 11th-ranked Badgers have weathered the adversity just fine so far, but the loss of leading tackler Jack Cichy for the year may provide coach Paul Chrysts defense its toughest challenge yet.Teammates were understandably down as preparations began this week for Saturdays showdown against No. 7 Nebraska . They need to move on quickly, however difficult it may be, without the popular Cichy.Its going to take our whole defensive front seven to fill in for guys who go down like Jack, said linebacker Vince Biegel, who returned for Wisconsins 17-9 win over Iowa last week after missing two games with a foot injury.But the Badgers (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten) have become frustratingly used to having to replace key pieces on defense.Cichy is the second starting inside linebacker to be lost for the year, after Chris Orr got hurt in the season opener. Biegel missed the losses to Michigan and Ohio State.Third cornerback Natrell Jamerson has missed several games with a left leg injury. Backup outside linebacker Zack Baun missed the Iowa game with his own left leg injury. Space-eating nose tackle Olive Sagapolu (right arm) has already been ruled out for the Nebraska game, missing a second straight contest.Starting cornerback Derrick Tindal left the Iowa game with a right leg injury.Sometimes life throws you curveballs. Sometimes football is the same way, Biegel said.Yet there the Badgers remain near the top of key categories in the FBS:-Fourth in scoring defense (14.3 points per game)-Ninth in total defense (300.6 yards)-Tenth in rushing defense (102.9 yards)Theres talent and chemistry to it. I think theres a good scheme to it, Chryst said.First-yeaar coordinator Justin Wilcox has successfully built on the scheme that former coordinator Dave Aranda established last season before leaving for LSU.ddddddddddddt outside linebacker, formerly untested Garrett Dooley filled in well for Biegel. Ryan Connelly will take over for Cichy. The top sub at inside linebacker also filled in when Orr went down in the opener, before the Badgers got T.J. Edwards back from a season-opening injury.In a testament to the depth at linebacker, that unit remains one of the best in the Big Ten in spite of the injuries. T.J. Watt has emerged as a force on the outside with Biegel, while there shouldnt be much drop-off with Connelly joining Edwards inside.Theres a challenge that weve got to rise up to ... where weve been successful, but that doesnt guarantee anything going forward, Chryst said.Perhaps the Badgers will draw inspiration from the red T-shirts they started wearing the last few days with the phrase, Got grit? printed in across the chest.Said Chryst: Grit is something thats important. There (are) a lot of guys on this team that have it.Wisconsin prides itself on a blue-collar, grind-it-out mentality. The Badgers can go step-for-step against squads at Ohio State and Michigan filled with highly-rated recruits.Cichy himself emerged from walk-on status to becoming an energetic heart of the defense.Weve really got a bunch of guys who embody what Wisconsin is all about. Thats smart, tough and dependable, safety Leo Musso said.---Online:College Football site: http://collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP ' ' '
