Jeff Sa­mardz­ija had a four-hitter, Melky Cabr­era home­red and the White Sox shut out the Toronto Blue Jays 2-0. The White Sox have won seven of nine and are start­ing to look like the team many thought would con­tend for a play­off spot this sea­son. Sa­mardz­ija (6-4) took care of things against the high-pow­ered Toronto of­fence. He took a no-hitter into the sixth in­ning for a sec­ond straight game. It was his first com­plete game of the sea­son. He struck out slug­ger Jose Bautista to end the two hour, 15-minute game and threw 108 pitches. The sub­ject of trade ru­mours as the dead­line ap­proaches, has pitched at least seven in­nings in seven straight starts, but Thurs­day was the first time dur­ing that stretch he was able to get through the eighth in­ning. Toronto’s R.A. Dickey (3-10) al­lowed two runs and four hits in seven in­nings.
