Matt Garza had to settle for his second career shutout after making a bid for the first no-hitter in Tampa Bay history. Garza didn't allow a hit against the Rangers until a debatable call with two outs in the sixth inning last night, then finished with a two-hitter as the Rays beat host Texas, 7-0. Meanwhile, a Tampa Bay lineup missing injured stars Evan Longoria and Carl Crawford hit four home runs in 4 2/3 innings off Kevin Millwood (6-7)....

Tampa Bay Rays righthander Matt Garza did not display the form that he showed in the American League Championship Series during his first start in the World Series against the Phillies last night. Garza, the MVP of the AL series, struggled early and late in his appearance against the Phillies. In six innings, he allowed four runs, all earned, while striking out seven and walking two. His Achilles' heel was the long ball, as he surrendered three home runs. That was quite a contrast to his ALCS performance when he was 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA. Garza won the decisive seventh game against the Boston Red Sox, 3-1. Garza put himself in an immediate hole last night when he had runners on second and third and no outs in the first inning.

Matt Garza has been traded to Texas from the Chicago Cubs, giving the Rangers a pitcher they have long coveted.

Garza, a 29-year-old righthander who can be a free agent after the season, is 5-0 with a 1.24 ERA his last six starts.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Royals on Monday traded outfielder Melky Cabrera to the San Francisco Giants for lefthander Jonathan Sanchez. It was the second significant trade involving a starter this offseason. The Atlanta Braves shipped Derek Lowe to the Cleveland Indians last week. The subject of trade speculation for several years, Sanchez threw a no-hitter on July 10, 2009, against San Diego. Only an error by third baseman Juan Uribe kept it from being a perfect game. Giants general manager Brian Sabean, who said he was never close to moving Sanchez in the past, put Sanchez on the trading block after the season in hopes of finding a player to bolster an offense that finished last in the NL in runs.

Where is everybody? "Put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play today," John Fogerty once sang. The Tampa Bay Rays, off to great start with nobody in Florida watching, have taken the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer at his word - and thrown in fellow Famers ZZ Top, too (we hear Billy Gibbons has a mean circle change). The Rays started a nine-game homestand featuring the Blue Jays, A's and Royals at Tropicana Field on Friday, which is not drawing well. The club tells Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times that tickets remain available in all price categories.

MILWAUKEE - The blank stares and general looks of uncertainty were replaced by more than a few did-that-really-just-happen grins. The sounds of silence were gone, too. Coolio played on the speakers in the victorious visiting clubhouse at Miller Park. It wasn't anything like the celebration in the same room six Octobers ago, when some of the same players clinched the franchise's first playoff series victory in 15 years. But it was certainly different than the vibe the Phillies had been unable to shake for the better part of the last month, too. "It's crazy," Jimmy Rollins said of the game of baseball, following yesterday's improbable 9-1 victory that capped a four-game series sweep.

THERE WAS A considerable amount of uncertainty in the press box about the appropriate terminology to describe the gesture that Ryan Braun made after he had popped the meat thermometer on the Phillies for a second straight game. To one scribe, it looked like a conductor directing an orchestra. To another, it looked like a rapper bouncing with his audience. One's perspective may depend in part upon one's age. Whatever the case, the message was clear. So was the implication.

MATT GARZA waited 10 months to take the mound again, but he will have to wait a little longer to get a victory. Travis Snider hit a pinch-hit grand slam during a five-run sixth and the Pittsburgh Pirates spoiled a strong return to the mound for Garza with a 5-4 win over the visiting Chicago Cubs last night. Garza allowed one hit over five shutout innings in his first outing in 10 months, but the Pirates pounced on a Chicago bullpen that is 10th in the National League in ERA by sending 11 men to the plate in the sixth.

The Texas Rangers won the Ryan Dempster sweepstakes, acquiring the Chicago Cubs ace for two minor leaguers moments before Tuesday's trade deadline. Kansas City reliever Jonathan Broxton also went from an also-ran to a contender, going to the Cincinnati Reds. Matt Garza and Josh Johnson stayed put for now as the window closed for clubs to make trades without having players pass through waivers. Four days after the AL West rival Los Angeles Angels acquired former Cy Young Award winner Zack Geinke, the Rangers obtained Dempster for infielder Christian Villanueva and pitcher Kyle Hendricks.

The Cubs made amends, then lost again. Matt Garza came off the disabled list and lasted four innings last night, but couldn't get the Cubs out of their slump. Jonny Gomes hit a three-run homer and drove in four overall, and the Cincinnati Reds pulled away to an 8-2 victory that added to the visiting Cubs' misery. Chicago has lost seven in a row, its deepest slump since it also lost that many last July 27-Aug. 3. "We're just in a tough place right now," Garza said.
