CHICAGO -- White Sox ace Chris Sale returned to his team Thursday to face the crosstown Cubs at Wrigley Field.He arrived on the last player bus to Wrigley, walked into the cramped visiting clubhouse, scanned the room and smiled. He hugged teammates Dioner Navarro and Matt Albers, then did a lap around the clubhouse, greeting each player sitting at his locker.Good to see you, pal, said third baseman Todd Frazier.?Sale wasnt allowed around his teammates during his five-day suspension following his jersey-tearing incident last weekend. Instead, he stayed home to prepare for Thursdays start -- or perhaps fine-tune his nascent tailoring skills.In absentia, Sales presence nevertheless loomed large on Wednesday in the Sox clubhouse, where his teammates were asked by the marauding media horde how the pitcher would be received upon his return.In [the clubhouse] with open arms, outfielder Adam Eaton said. When he pitches, he puts on a good show. Im sure it wont be any different when he comes back.Said Navarro: Its weird, its a crazy situation, but I think if somebody can handle it, its him.Youve probably heard the story by now and read more than a few Scissorshands cracks on your favorite social media outlet. Last Saturday, the White Sox planned to use throwback jerseys, but Sale was unhappy with the decision. So he proceeded to methodically cut up those jerseys. He said his beef was a competitive issue; the uniforms were uncomfortable and didnt allow him to pitch at his best.During an interview on MLB.com, Sale said he regretted not being there for his teammates during the suspension, but not so much for the act itself.Do I regret standing up for what I believe in? Absolutely not, he said. Do I regret saying business should not be first before winning? Absolutely not.As tales of the incident spread like a surreal wildfire through the league, Sale was scratched from his scheduled start and suspended the next day. The immediate consequence was that, at the last minute, six White Sox relievers had to step in to soak up Sales innings. They collectively held down the Detroit Tigers and set up Eatons walk-off hit to win that game.Then the White Sox reeled off three more Ws, the first two in similar walk-off fashion, and took the first two of four games against the Cubs. A late-game collapse Wednesday brought the Sale-less spree to a halt. Still, rather than Throwbackgate destroying clubhouse unity, the entire sequence seems to have drawn the White Sox closer.That kind of stuff can ruin a team, Frazier?said. It can be even littler -- Ive seen littler stuff put a team in the hole. I just think the guys are determined to play the game right.I think when we found out the bullpen was going to have to go, they kind of took it upon themselves to step up. Thats all you can ask for as a player. Were professionals; youve got to be ready for change.When Sale takes the mound Thursday, hell be pitching for a chance to give the White Sox a resounding win in the four-game, two-ballpark series, which would get the Sox back to .500.?Maybe its the calm before the storm, maybe its not, Frazier said. Well see. Im just happy were on the roll were getting here. You can see it a little bit. You can see it in everybodys faces. Its a little more chipper, I guess you can say.Were ready to go. I think were going to get on a great, big roll here. I think its going to be an exciting time for the White Sox.If it seems as if weve seen this scenario play out before, thats because it has. After first baseman Adam LaRoche retired late in spring training upon being told he could no longer bring his son into the clubhouse, Sale accused White Sox executive Kenny Williams of lying to the team, saying, Somebody walked out of those doors the other day, and it was the wrong guy.With that controversy still lingering, the White Sox raced to a 23-10 start, and they hope this current post-controversy upturn can stretch as long as that start did.Seems like every time we have a little bit of a stir, things go right, Eaton said. Beginning of the season went really well for us. This little stir, its been a positive thing. When [Sale] comes back, Im sure he wont miss any step in his hop. Im sure hell be just fine.After attributing the White Soxs resilience to the presence of a few well-placed veterans on the roster, manager Robin Ventura said hes not expecting any resentment toward Sale from his teammates.Players always have their teammates back, Ventura said. Its no different in our clubhouse. I think its going to be fairly normal. Hes going to be prepared to pitch. Our guys are going to be prepared to play.Sale has finished in the top six in American League Cy Young voting in each of the past four seasons, and he is a leading contender for the award this season. Since the beginning of the 2012 season, Sale ranks third among all pitchers in strikeouts, and seventh in both wins and ERA.Here is what I know about Chris: Chris is a good kid, who has a good heart, who does a lot of things nobody sees, said pitching coach Don Cooper. Certainly on top of all of it, hes a quality pitcher, a high-level pitcher.Robin [Ventura] said he was one of the best in the league (but) Ill take it a step further. I think hes in the top 10 on the face of the Earth.Despite what appeared to be an act of utter petulance, Sale seems to remain high in the esteem of his teammates. Hes the ace, and that title extends all the way from the mound to the clubhouse, and beyond.Hes our teammate, Eaton said. Hes our guy. (Despite) all the things that are swirling around about his character and who he is as a player, hes my brother. I enjoy every second with him on the field and off the field.He cant be a better person. With that, Ill be excited to see him. Im sure hell be in the same form he has been the entire year. Hell go out there and produce, and be Chris Sale.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Best Price ECCO Mens Yucatan Sandals 069564-52340 BISON Black/Black .

Ecco Sandals Mens Sale UK . Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career. PITTSBURGH -- Down to his final strike and his team trailing by a run with two outs in the ninth, St. Louis pinch-hitter Matt Carpenter told himself to just find a pitch he could handle.When the fastball from closer Tony Watson ended up right down the middle and not up and away as Watson hoped, Carpenter pounced. His solo homer -- a major league record 15th by a St. Louis pinch-hitter this season -- tied it and sent a jolt through the Cardinals. A home run each from Randal Grichuk and Jhonny Peralta followed, and St. Louis rallied for a stunning 9-7 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night.Weve got a team that I think the best way to describe it is a dangerous team, Carpenter said. Weve got a team that I dont think anybody wants to match up with, especially in a postseason scenario. Its a fun team to play on. We never quit, and tonight was a good example of it.St. Louis blew an early five-run lead and the Pirates were a pitch away from ending a seven-game losing streak when Watsons 0-2 fastball turned into Carpenters 18th home run. An All-Star two years ago as a setup man who moved into the closer role when Mark Melancon was traded to Washington at the deadline, Watson gave up as many homers in the ninth as he did during the entire 2015 season.Were not playing good ball and to go out there and (have) guys fight back and be a strike away and serve up four more runs, its tough to swallow, Watson (2-4) said after his third blown save since replacing Melancon.Yadier Molina went 4 for 5, including a first-inning grand slam for St. Louis. Mike Mayers (1-1) tossed a scoreless eighth for the win, and Seung-Hwan Oh worked around a solo homer to Jung Ho Kang in the ninth for his 16th save.The Cardinals finished with five home runs in all, including Matt Adams 436-foot drive over the seats in right field that plopped into the Allegheny River on the bounce. The comeback allowed St. Louis to remain a game in front of the New York Mets for the second wild card in the National League.Im speechless, St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. Just, I love how this team competes, right down to the last out. Having a guy like (Carpenter), who hadnt felt quite right, to be able to come into that situation, and then rigght after that .dddddddddddd.. Im at a loss.Jung Ho Kang had two homers for Pittsburgh and Jordy Mercer hit a two-run double in the fifth as the Pirates took advantage of some sloppy defense by the Cardinals to overcome an early five-run deficit. Watsons implosion, however, sent Pittsburgh to its eighth straight defeat.The Pirates came in reeling during their longest skid in two years, one that dropped them to the fringe of playoff contention. Opponents have outscored them 47-22 during the slide, including a 12-6 setback on Monday night in which the Cardinals simply overpowered Pittsburghs struggling pitching staff.It looked like more of the same early on Tuesday. The Cardinals loaded the bases against Ryan Vogelsong and Molina cleared them with his first grand slam since 2012, the 25th straight game the Cardinals have homered, a club record.MARTINEZ FINALLY ARRIVESSt. Louis rookie outfielder Jose Martinez made his long-awaited major league debut when he entered as a pinch-hitter in the seventh. The 28-year-old son of former major leaguer Carlos Cafe Martinez grounded out to third in his first plate appearance after more than a decade in the minors.It was good to see him get that chance, Matheny said. This is a good day for him. Long time coming.TRAINING ROOMCardinals: RF Stephen Piscotty was initially held out of the lineup to give his aching left wrist a breather. Piscotty took a pitch off the wrist on Monday. Postgame X-rays were negative and Piscotty doubled as a pinch-hitter in the eighth.Pirates: Pittsburgh held C Francisco Cervelli out of the lineup a day after he experienced discomfort in his left hand trying to block a pitch.UP NEXTCardinals: Mike Leake returns to the rotation after a stay on the disabled list while battling a case of the shingles. Leake is 9-5 with a 3.28 ERA in his career against Pittsburgh but is 1-2 with a 5.71 ERA this season.Pirates: Rookie Jameson Taillon will face the Cardinals for the first time in the series finale. The 24-year-old has a 2.80 ERA over his last 10 starts and pitched six innings of one-run ball last week against Milwaukee.
