CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon was removed from a minor league rehab start after being hit in the forehead by a line drive. Rodon was pitching for Triple-A Charlotte as he works back from offseason shoulder surgery. He fell to the ground but bounced up quickly after being struck by D'Arby Myers' comebacker in the third inning. Rodon removed his hat and checked his forehead for blood as a team trainer ran to the mound. He seemed to want to remain in the game but was led off by the trainer.

CHICAGO (AP) - Dylan Bundy struck out a career-high 14 and pitched a two-hitter for his second complete game in the majors, leading the Baltimore Orioles over the Chicago White Sox 9-3. Adam Jones and Trey Mancini hit solo home runs as Baltimore took a 9-0 lead after three innings.

NEW YORK (AP) - Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo has been suspended for 80 games following a positive test for a performance-enhancing substance. Major League Baseball cited EPO use. The hormone stimulates red-blood production and often turns up in test results for cyclists. Castillo apologized, saying he made an "extremely poor decision" and takes "full responsibility." He is in his ninth season and is batting .267 with six homers and 15 RBIs.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Reggie Meyer pitched a three-hitter in his first career complete game and top-seeded Minnesota beat Illinois 3-0 in the Big Ten Tournament. The Gophers are off until Saturday and need one more win to reach the championship game Sunday. Meyer struck out eight, walked one and hit a batter.
