Alex Colome suffered a blown save against the Yankees on Thursday, allowing a run on two hits.

As blown saves go, this one was tough to swallow. Sure, Brett Gardner's leadoff triple put Colome in a bind, but it looked as though he was going to get out of it after retiring Clint Frazier and Aaron Judge while keeping Gardner at third. And when Gary Sanchez hit a seemingly harmless grounder toward the shortstop, it certainly seemed as though the game was over. But shortstop Aideny Hechavarria assumed second baseman Tim Beckham would make the play, and Beckham did the same for Hechavarria, and in the end it was Colome left holding the bag. The blown save was his first in a month, and the 28-year-old still has a strong 3.66 ERA to go with his AL-best 29 saves. Thursday was simply a blip on the radar.

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-5 with a solo homer in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Yankees reliever Chad Green threw a 95 mph fastball up in the zone that Dickerson caught up to, yanking it out to right for his 19th homer of the year. He'd been hitless in his previous four games, with the mini slump dropping his season line to .304/.348/.535 through Thursday's game. His 64 runs still rank among the league's best, and the 28-year-old has a shot at setting career highs in a number of offensive categories this year.

Gary Sanchez went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Rays.

Sanchez got hold of a Chris Archer offering in the third inning for his 15th homer of the year, and he also provided some small heroics with an RBI single in the ninth inning that tied the game and paved the way for Brett Gardner's walk-off homer in the 11th. The 24-year-old needed a good night after what's been a rough month -- Sanchez was hitting just .213/.259/.320 with one homer in July coming into the night. Perhaps Thursday's game can be a jumping off point for Sanchez.

Chris Archer punched out 10 while allowing three runs over six innings but settled for a no-decision Thursday against the Yankees.

Archer did what he could, turning in his sixth consecutive quality start, but his bullpen let him down, denying him his eighth win. In fact, in those six straight quality starts, the 28-year-old is just 1-2. Archer has deserved better than his 7-6 record overall, posting a 3.80 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 177/46 K/BB ratio over 22 starts; he ranks second in the American League in both innings pitched and strikeouts. Life doesn't get any easier for Archer and the Rays next week, when the right-hander squares off with the AL West-leading Astros on Tuesday.

Dusty Coleman went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Coleman uncoiled for a three-run home run -- the first big league home run of his career -- in the fourth inning to give the Padres a 7-1 lead. The Mets would later crawl to within 7-5, but were unable to draw closer than that. This was just Coleman's third game with the Padres. He owned a .209/.280/.438 triple-slash with 14 homers and 11 steals at Triple-A prior to being called up at the beginning of the week.
Jul 28 - 12:24 AM

Manuel Margot went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a two-run double in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Margot offered a rude enough welcome to Chris Flexen in this one with a leadoff solo homer to open the game in what was Flexen's first start of his major league career. The outfielder would haunt Flexen once more with a two-run double in the second inning. He has been scalding the ball at the plate of late, having homered in back-to-back games and picked up at least two hits in each of his last four contests. Overall, Margot boasts a .279/.321/.420 triple-slash with seven homers and 22 RBI over the course of 69 games played. He has also stolen 10 bases.

Jay Bruce - OF - Mets

Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

The Mets entered action in the top of the seventh trailing 7-1, but they were able to make it a game with four runs in the frame to draw to within 7-5. Bruce was key to that big frame, connecting for a two-run homer. He is one potential trade candidate of several on the roster as we near Monday's deadline. For the season as a whole, the 30-year-old outfielder is hitting .262/.325/.521 with 26 homers and 70 RBI across 374 at-bats.
Jul 28 - 12:21 AM

Yoenis Cespedes went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

Cespedes launched a deep RBI double off Luis Perdomo in the seventh inning. The two-bagger was his 12th of the season. He has dealt with his fair share of nagging injuries during the campaign -- most recently a quad ailment -- but when healthy, is slashing a sturdy .282/.333/.510 with 10 homers and 27 RBI over the course of 55 games played.
