Orioles Top White Sox with No Fans in Attendance

iStock/Thinkstock(BALTIMORE) -- In what was believed to be the first major league game played without fans in attendance, Chris Davis hit a three-run homer in a six-run first inning Wednesday as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox, 8-2.

The gates at Camden Yards were locked because of concern for fan safety following recent rioting in Baltimore.

Both teams lined up for the national anthem, music played in between innings and the seventh-inning stretch was noted with the traditional John Denver song.

The Orioles and White Sox played their game in two hours and three minutes. Baltimore won its third straight game.

Royals' Lorenzo Cain Says Feud with White Sox Over

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Kansas City Royals' outfielder Lorenzo Cain, who was among those suspended by Major League Baseball following the brawl between his team and the Chicago White Sox, says the bad blood between the two teams has been resolved.

Six players overall, including Cain, were suspended by Major League Baseball for a total of 26 games as a result of the scuffle.

"I think we got all our emotions out that night and I think it's over and done with," Cain said. "I think we're going to try to go out here and go back to just playing baseball and leave it at that."

"It shouldn't have escalated to that point in the first place," Cain added. "Once it gets to that point, it's up to them to decide on the suspensions."

Cain received a two-game suspension for his role in the brawl, but is currently appealing.

MLB Hands Suspensions Down from Royals-White Sox Brawl YORK) -- The damage has been done from the brawl between the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox on Thursday night as Major League Baseball handed down suspensions from the incident.

Royals starting pitcher Yordano Ventura received a seven-game suspension, starting pitcher Edinson Volquez received a five-game suspension, outfielder Lorenzo Cain received a two-game suspension, and pitcher Kelvin Herrera received a two-game suspension.

For the White Sox, starting pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Chris Sale received five-game suspensions.

It all started in the fourth inning when Yordano Ventura hit first baseman Jose Abreu with a pitch. White Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale then plunked Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas.

In the seveneth inning, White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton grounded out to Ventura, who then proceeded to yell something at Eaton that upset him.

Benches eventually cleared that saw the two teams come to blows.

Unless appealed, all suspensions are scheduled to be effective on Sunday.

Royals-White Sox Game Leads to Bench-Clearing Brawl

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- A wild seventh-inning brawl between the Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals on Thursday started near the first-base foul line, ranged out toward second base and resumed again near the first-base bag, ending with the ejection of five players, including both starting pitchers.

It all started when Chicago's Jose Abreu was hit in the left elbow by a Yordano Ventura pitch in the fourth inning, and the Royals' Mike Moustakas was hit in the upper right arm by Chris Sale one inning later. Both benches were warned after Moustakas was hit.

However, things didn't get ugly until Adam Eaton hit a comebacker at Ventura in the seventh inning. Television replays appeared to show that Ventura barked an expletive at Eaton before throwing to first base for the out.

The Royals lead the majors this season with nine players ejected (Ventura has been ejected in his last two starts). The Padres trail in second place with only three players tossed.

White Sox to Call Up Top Pitching Prospect Carlos Rodon

Photos.come/Thinkstock(CHICAGO) -- Reinforcements are coming for the Chicago White Sox. The team plans to call up top pitching prospect Carlos Rodon to the Majors on Monday.

Rodon was the third overall pick in the 2014 draft by the White Sox.

The 22-year-old Rodon had a successful yet brief minor league stint. He appeared in 11 games, making eight starts through the White Sox minor league system.

"There will still be butterflies when the debut comes, whatever day that is," Rodon said at the end of spring training. "But it makes it a little easier I guess because I've faced big-league hitters before. But it counts a little more when that happens."

He wound up going 1-0 with a 3.15 ERA. Rodon also performed well in the spring, going 2-0 with a 3.06 ERA, five walks and 21 strikeouts in 172/3 innings.

Despite the White Sox high hopes for the talented left-hander, the team will begin his Major League career with him pitching out of the bullpen at first to help ease his transition to facing Major League hitters.

Bauer Leads Indians Over White Sox, 4-2 -- Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer (2-0) struck out eight batters over six innings of work as Cleveland (3-5) doubled up the Chicago White Sox (3-5) on Wednesday afternoon, 4-2.

Bauer allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks. His ERA on the season is 1.50. Closer Cody Allen earned his second save of the year with a scoreless ninth.

With Cleveland staked to a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning, third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall took a 2-1 pitch from White Sox starter John Danks (0-2) and belted a two-run double. The Indians would tack on another run in the fifth on an RBI single from first baseman Carlos Santana.

Phil Hughes Excited for Opening Day Start

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Twins pitcher Phil Hughes will make the first Opening Day start of his career on Monday when Minnesota takes on the Detroit Tigers.

Hughes will have a tough counterpart in David Price, but is looking forward to it.

"It's very cool," Hughes said this week about making the Opening Day start.  "It's something that I never had the opportunity to do in my career." 

"I've been a part of a lot of Opening Day's and to see that kind of atmosphere is going to be great to be a part of."

Hughes was 16-10 last season with a 3.52 ERA in his first season in Minnesota.

"It's a little bit different," Hughes said of the adjustments to pitching on Opening Day.  "You have to time your routine.  I'll just kind of play it by ear, it should be a good atmosphere in Detroit."

Hughes spent seven seasons with the New York Yankees before coming to Minnesota last year.
