Travis Shaw belted a three-run homer and reached base four times in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Shaw's blast came off of Edwin Jackson in the fourth inning and was one of three longballs that Jackson served up on the night. The Brewers' third baseman also had a single and drew a pair of walks. Shaw has been incredible in his first season in Milwaukee, as he's on pace for 37 homers, 116 RBI, 92 runs and 11 stolen bases.

Matt Wieters went hitless in four plate appearances Tuesday versus the Brewers and is now batting .246/.293/.380 on the season.

The low on-base percentage from Wieters is expected this point, but he's been a disappointment in the power department. The veteran backstop slugged four dingers in April but has just three since, and none so far in July.

Tim Beckham blasted a three-run homer on Tuesday, powering the Orioles to a 5-4 victory over the Orioles.

His three-run shot capped off a five-run uprising in the second inning off of O's starter Wade Miley. While it was his lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon, it was the biggest blow in the game. He has filled in admirably for the injured Matt Duffy this season, hitting .262/.316/.419 with 12 bombs and 36 RBI.

Salvador Perez (rib) said he expects to catch Wednesday against the Tigers.

Perez made an early exit from Tuesday night's victory in Detroit after experiencing tightness around his rib cage, but he should ultimately be fine. The star catcher had a similar issue earlier this year, though that was on the other side of his body.

Cesar Valdez tossed six frames of one-run ball in Tuesday’s 4-1 victory over the Athletics.

Filling in for Aaron Sanchez (blister), Valdez limited the A’s to just five hits and one walk while notching four strikeouts. He threw only 77 pitches over his six innings, but since he had been pitching in relief lately Blue Jays manager John Gibbons decided that was enough. Valdez has no doubt earned another start, which will come Sunday against the Angels.

Mallex Smith went 1-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI as the Rays bested the Orioles on Tuesday.

Smith got the game's scoring started with an RBI single in the second inning. He came around to score later in the frame on a three-run blast by Tim Beckham. The speedy outfielder is enjoying a nice season at the dish, slashing .293/.362/.401 with a pair of homers, nine RBI and 15 stolen bases.

Making what could be his last start with the Athletics, Sonny Gray allowed four unearned runs over six innings Tuesday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Gray’s own throwing error in the second inning opened the door to four runs, but fortunately for his fantasy owners none of the tallies were earned. He held the Jays in check otherwise, giving up just five hits and two walks while getting nine strikeouts. If Gray does have another outing with the A’s, it will come Sunday versus the Twins.

Roberto Osuna recorded his 26th save of the season Tuesday versus the Athletics.

On to protect a three-run lead, Osuna retired three straight after a leadoff single by Yonder Alonso, striking out Khris Davis as part of the frame. Osuna had a rough April but has posted a microscopic 1.08 ERA and absurd 49/4 K/BB ratio across 33 1/3 innings since the beginning of May.
