DETROIT (AP) - Moises Sierra had four hits, and Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton added three apiece to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.

     The game quickly became a secondary concern in the Motor City when the Tigers acquired star left-hander David Price from Tampa Bay in a three-team deal.

     Joakim Soria - another pitcher Detroit recently traded for - hit Paul Konerko with the bases loaded in the seventh to give the White Sox a 5-4 lead.

     Abreu extended his hitting streak to 20 games.

     Ronald Belisario got the win in relief, and Jake Petricka pitched the ninth for his sixth save.


CHICAGO (AP) - Jake Arrieta struck out seven in seven innings, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 3-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday.

     Arrieta allowed one run and three hits in his first victory since June 30 at Boston. The 6-foot-4 right-hander has a 1.73 ERA in his last 11 starts, holding opponents to a .162 batting average.

     The Cubs won three of four in a matchup of last-place teams. The Rockies have lost four of five and 11 of 15 overall.

     Pedro Hernandez allowed three runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings in his first start for Colorado.


SAN DIEGO (AP) - Shelby Miller and three relievers combined on a three-hitter, and Oscar Taveras hit a two-run homer for the St. Louis Cardinals, who beat the San Diego Padres 6-2 Thursday to avoid a three-game sweep.

     The Cardinals acquired right-hander John Lackey from Boston just before the trade deadline to bolster their rotation. They open a series against NL Central-leading Milwaukee on Friday in St. Louis.

     Miller held San Diego to two runs and three hits in six innings, struck out five and walked none. He earned his first win since June 7.

     St. Louis roughed up San Diego rookie Odrisamer Despaigne a day after playing what manager Mike Matheny called the team's ugliest loss of the season, a 12-1 defeat Wednesday night.


CHICAGO (AP) - The contending Atlanta Braves have acquired infielder-outfielder Emilio Bonifacio and left-handed reliever James Russell from the Chicago Cubs for catching prospect Victor Caratini.

     The Braves also got cash from the Cubs in Thursday's trade. Neither Bonifacio nor Russell played in the Cubs' 3-1 win over Colorado earlier in the day.

     The 29-year-old Bonifacio hit .279 with 18 RBIs and 14 steals in 69 games for the Cubs this season. The 28-year-old Russell went 0-2 with one save and a 3.51 ERA in 44 games.

     Atlanta is in the chase for the NL East and the Cubs are last in the NL Central.

     The 20-year-old Caratini was hitting .279 with five home runs and 42 RBIs at Class A Rome.


BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have traded right-hander John Lackey to the St. Louis Cardinals for right-hander Joe Kelly and outfielder Allen Craig before Thursday's deadline, a person with knowledge of the deal said.

     The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither club announced the trade.

     Earlier, the Red Sox sent their top starter, left-hander Jon Lester, to the Oakland Athletics with outfielder Jonny Gomes and cash for slugging outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and a 2015 draft pick.

     Lackey was 11-7 with a 3.60 ERA as the No. 2 starter in Boston's rotation.

     Kelly is 2-2 with a 4.37 ERA in seven starts. He has made four starts since being activated from the disabled list on July 11. Craig is batting .237 with seven homers and 44 RBIs.
