Ken Giles retired all five batters he faced, striking out three of them, for his 24th save Friday against the A's.

Gules has been excellent of late, but the save tonight was just his second of August and sixth since the beginning of July. The Astros are the AL's winningest team, but they've given Giles just 27 save chances while going 75-47. Compare that to Alex Colome, who has 35 saves in 40 chances for a 60-64 Rays team.

Sean Manaea surrendered three runs over six innings Friday in a loss to the Astros.

It's still progress for Manaea, considering that he gave up 18 runs -- 13 earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in his previous three starts combined. He's still winless since July 16, and he's a hard guy to trust in mixed leagues right now.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 and hit his 19th homer Friday against the Athletics.

Altuve broke out of an 0-for-4 slump tonight. He's up to 19 homers and 67 RBI now. He's on pace for 25 homers, 110 runs and 89 RBI, which is quite close to where he finished last year (24 homers, 108 runs, 96 RBI).

Craig Kimbrel notched his 29th save Friday after striking out the side against the Yankees.

The Red Sox now have a five-game lead in the AL East. Kimbrel needed just 14 pitches to set the Yankees down in order. He now has seven straight scoreless appearances under his belt. He’s struck out at least two batters in all of them. Kimbrel has been nothing short of amazing this year, with a 1.38 ERA, 0.63 WHIP, and 97/8 K/BB ratio over 52 innings.

Matt Carpenter crushed a three-run homer in a win over the Pirates on Friday.

He circled the bases after depositing a Trevor Williams offering over the wall with two runners aboard in the second inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats, although he did draw a walk as well. Carpenter's batting average has taken a tumble this season -- his current .249 mark would be a career low by a wide margin. He now has 16 home runs, 69 runs and 60 RBI in 499 plate appearances.

Corey Kluber suffered a minor ankle sprain during Friday's start against the Royals.

Indians' manager Terry Francona said afterwards that the injury is minor and as long as he's able to throw his regular bullpen session during the week that he isn't in danger of missing his next start, otherwise they'll push him back a few days.

Aroldis Chapman’s struggles continued Friday against the Red Sox, as he allowed two runs on two hits and a walk over one inning of work.

Chapman was asked to keep the Yankees within one run, but he gave up a leadoff single to Rafael Devers before walking Christian Vazquez. He then ignored the baserunners, so they were able to pull off a double steal before Jackie Bradley, Jr. brought them both home on a single to center. Chapman failed to back up home plate on the play, which resulted in a visit from manager Joe Girardi. The southpaw avoided any further damage, but he’s now allowed two earned runs in three straight appearances for the first time in his career. He now owns a 9.95 ERA over seven appearances against the Red Sox this season. While his hamstring issue was apparently minor, something clearly isn’t right here. One wonders how long his leash is as the Yankees try to fight for a playoff spot.

Jordan Montgomery yielded three runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday.

After holding the Red Sox to one run in 5 1/3 innings last time out, Montgomery was victimized by the home run ball in this one, giving up a two-run shot to Rafael Devers in the second inning before Christian Vazquez connected for a solo shot in the fifth. The rookie southpaw fanned three and walked a pair in the loss. He’s now sitting on a 4.00 ERA and 118/40 KBB ratio in 126 innings across 23 starts. With CC Sabathia and Masahiro Tanaka on track to return from the DL, there’s probably not going to be room for him in the rotation for now.
