CHICAGO -- Marcus Semien simply tried to stay calm and collect himself as he stepped to the plate with the Chicago White Sox threatening to take the lead. Then, he delivered. Semien hit a tiebreaking RBI double in a two-run 12th, Jose Quintana pitched one-hit ball over seven innings, and the White Sox beat the Cubs 3-1 at Wrigley Field on Monday night. "Sometimes you get a little bit more amped up," Semien said. "But the calmer I am, the better I do, usually." Quintana and five relievers combined on a four-hitter, and the White Sox came away with the win after dropping four straight and six of seven to their crosstown rivals. The Cubs lost even though Jeff Samardzija pitched three-hit ball over nine innings. He remained winless despite coming up big on the mound and delivering at the plate, coming through with the lone hit off Quintana and scoring the Cubs lone run. "You couldnt ask for anything more from a starting pitcher than what he gave us," manager Rick Renteria said. "So its a shame that we werent able to get (the win) for him." The winning rally started when Alexei Ramirez singled off Justin Grimm with two out and stole second. Tyler Flowers walked, and Semien lined a 1-1 pitch over third baseman Mike Olts head to make it 2-1. Grimm (1-1) plunked pinch-hitter Paul Konerko on the left arm to load the bases and walked Alejandro De Aza to make it a two-run game. In the bottom half, Matt Lindstrom walked Welington Castillo leading off before Nate Schierholtz bounced into a double play. He then gave up a single to Olt and struck out Luis Valbuena for his fifth save in eight chances. Daniel Webb (3-0) struck out the lone batter he faced for the win. Both teams got dominant starts, with Samardzija and Quintana each allowing one run on a chilly night with the wind blowing in. The only hit off Quintana was a leadoff double in the sixth by Samardzija, who scored on a sacrifice fly by Junior Lake that tied it at 1. The White Sox threatened in the ninth when Samardzija walked Jose Abreu and Adam Dunn with one out, but Dayan Viciedo grounded into a double play. In the bottom half, the Cubs Anthony Rizzo singled off Ronald Belisario with one out and moved to second on a grounder to shortstop by Starlin Castro, with the throw from Alexei Ramirez deep in the hole barely beating him. The call was upheld after a replay review, and Castillo then struck out to send the game to extra innings. The Cubs left two on in the 11th when Webb came in for Scott Downs and struck out Castro for the third out. It was another hard-luck night for Samardzija, who struck out seven and walked two while throwing a career-high 126 pitches. He is 0-3 in seven starts this season despite a 1.62 ERA, and the Cubs are 1-6 when he pitches. His most recent win was against San Diego on Aug. 24. In 13 starts since then, hes 0-5. "We come out to win games every day regardless of whos on the mound or what the lineup is or who were facing," he said. "You come out to win the game. Anytime you dont win, its frustrating." Quintana, meanwhile, retired the first 14 batters before walking Schierholtz and Olt. Still, he took yet another no-decision. He has four after setting an American League record with 17 last season. "He was great," manager Robin Ventura said. "Both pitchers were great. Q had a little extra life on it today. Would have liked to have kept him in there. Hes not quite the hitter the other guy is. He pitched great for us. He was rolling there pretty good." NOTES: White Sox ace Chris Sale said he felt fine after throwing his first bullpen session since injuring his left arm. Sale threw 40 pitches before Mondays game. General manager Rick Hahn said the left-hander will go on a rehab assignment in the "coming couple weeks." ... Hahn also said reliever Nate Jones had back surgery and will be re-evaluated in a month. He is on the 60-day disabled list. ... RHP Edwin Jackson (2-2, 5.24 ERA) starts Tuesday for the Cubs, with RHP Hector Noesi (0-2, 11.12) pitching for the White Sox. DeShawn Williams Jersey Store

. Mired in an offensive slump, Lowry - the NBAs leader in taking charges this season - did what he has learned to do best, standing his ground and drawing a crucial offensive foul on the Cavaliers all-star point guard. Fast forward 30 seconds to the Cavs next possession, with the home team still trailing by three, Spencer Hawes - one of the leagues best passing big men - threw an interception, intended for Tyler Zeller and picked off by DeMar DeRozan.Brooke Henderson was hoping to just make the cut at the U.S. Womens Open. Instead, the 16-year-old from Smiths Falls, Ont., left Pinehurst No. 2 as the low amateur in one of the biggest tournaments in womens golf. “Theres a lot of great amateurs that qualified here this week at the U.S. Open,” said Henderson after finishing up with a 69 in the final round. “I mean, tied 11 right now is where I stand and thats great. Coming in, I was trying to make the cut and then climb up the leaderboard, and I was able to do that. So Im very happy.” Henderson actually ended up tied for 10th, a significant finish as it gives her a spot in next years tournament. After 13 holes, she was three under for her day and tied for fifth spot, but a double bogey on the 16th dropped her back. She finished up the tournament at five over par. “My ball striking was really big for me today,” said Henderson. “I made two mistakes off the tee which cost me a double and a bogey, but other than that, I was hitting it really well and had a couple tap-in birdies, which is reeally nice.dddddddddddd” Henderson said she found the course extremely tough in the early going, and was almost intimidated by it. But she found her stride as the week went on and was especially good off the tee, hitting 48 of 56 fairways for the week. The big prize for the week came as Henderson earned the medal as the low amateur, besting Minjee Lee of Australia, the No. 1-ranked amateur in the world. It also gave the Team Canada member a wealth of confidence in where she wants to be. “The best players in the world are here and to know that Im right up there, its really awesome,” she stated. “I still have a long way to go to where I want to be in the next couple years, but its really exciting to know that I have the potential and it was a great finish here this week.” Henderson has a busy summer ahead of her. Shell play in the Canadian Amateur July 22-25, the U.S. Womens Amateur Aug. 4-10, and the CP Canadian Womens Open Aug. 18-24. She will also play for Canada at the World Team Amateur Golf Championships in early September. ' ' '
