Eric Hosmer singled and hit a two-run home run in four at-bats as the Royals were crushed by the Tigers on Thursday.

If there was a positive to take away from a 16-4 loss for the Royals, it's that Hosmer appears to be coming to life. He is now on a 10-game hitting streak and has homered in back-to-back games. He went deep off of Drew Smyly in the seventh inning, helping chase the lefty from the contest. Hosmer's slash line is up to .263/.312/.375 with six home runs and 41 RBI.

J.D. Martinez finished 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, and three runs batted in as the Tigers routed the Royals on Thursday.

Martinez has hit safely in all nine July games thus far. He drove in a run with a single in the fifth inning, another run with a double in the seventh, and hit a sacrifice fly in the ninth. The outfielder is having a break-out season, slashing .335/.373/.648 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI.
Jul 10 - 11:57 PM

Miguel Cabrera doubled twice, walked twice, and drove in three runs as the Tigers skated to a victory against the Royals on Thursday.

Cabrera knocked in a run with a first-inning ground out, then knocked in a pair with a double in the fourth inning. The first baseman continues to hit, sporting a .315/.376/.550 slash line with 14 home runs and 73 RBI on the season.
Jul 10 - 11:55 PM

Torii Hunter finished 3-for-6 with two RBI singles and a solo home run as the Tigers walked all over the Royals in a win on Thursday.

Hunter has turned his season around with a hot start to July. Thursday's three-hit performance marked his sixth multi-hit game in nine games this month. The outfielder now has 12 home runs, 52 RBI, and a .276/.298/.455 slash line.
Jul 10 - 11:52 PM

Hector Santiago cruised to his first win of the season, allowing four runs (three earned) over six innings as the Angels routed the Rangers by a 15-6 score on Thursday.

The Angels were up 13-2 after three innings, so Santiago's first win of 2014 was in the bag. The lefty, now 1-7, allowed five hits, walked one, and struck out eight. He'll go into the All-Star break with a 4.50 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and a 62/25 K/BB ratio.
Jul 10 - 11:44 PM

Colby Lewis was demolished by the Angels' lineup on Thursday, allowing 13 runs (11 earned) in 2 1/3 innings, resulting in a loss.

Lewis entered the start with a 5.51 ERA, which was ugly enough, but it took a serious beating on Thursday. The right-hander surrendered 13 hits and struck out only one, but at least he didn't issue a walk. Lewis, tattered, heads into the All-Star break with a 6.54 ERA, a 1.82 WHIP, and a 73/26 K/BB ratio.
Jul 10 - 11:41 PM

Jake Smolinski singled, doubled twice, scored twice, and drove in three runs as the Rangers were hammered in a loss to the Angels on Thursday.

Smolinski has been on fire to begin his major league career, as he has had back-to-back-to-back multi-hit games in his first three big league starts. The 25-year-old outfielder doubled in two runs in the first inning to cut the Angels' lead to 4-2, and doubled in another run in the ninth inning. In 14 plate appearances, Smolinski has eight hits (including three doubles) and four RBI.
Jul 10 - 11:35 PM

Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, but the Rangers were trampled by the Angels on Thursday.

Beltre hit a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth inning, but by then, it was too little, too late as the Rangers still trailed 13-4. Beltre has been nearly unstoppable at the plate, as the veteran has 13 home runs, 50 RBI, and a sterling .341/.385/.545 slash line.
