Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Cano had an RBI double in the first inning before singling in two more with the bases loaded in the eighth. It was another productive night for the 32-year-old, who now has 12 RBI in his last nine games. After a sluggish first half, Cano is now batting .264/.309/.413 with 48 RBI and 51 runs scored on the year.

Kyle Parker hit his first major league home run in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

With the outcome of the game still in the balance, Parker hit a solo shot off reliever Mayckol Guaipe -- not exactly the most memorable opposing pitcher against whom to hit a first-ever homer -- in the sixth inning. It was Parker's lone hit in four at-bats. Parker is hitting .286/.333/.500 after Tuesday's game but will need to show more of that power before becoming fantasy relevant.
Aug 5 - 1:50 AM

Cody Allen set the Angels down in order for his 22nd save in Tuesday's 2-0, 12-inning win.

In the 12th inning, after the Indians had taken a 2-0 lead, Allen fanned David DeJesus and Kole Calhoun consecutively before getting Mike Trout to ground out to end the game. The right-hander has struggled, particularly recently, but is 22-for-24 in save situations on the year with a 3.56 ERA and a 66/17 K/BB ratio over 43 innings.
Aug 5 - 1:48 AM

Matt Shoemaker continued to pitch well, tossing six scoreless innings in a no-decision as the Angels lost in 12 innings to the Indians on Tuesday.

Shoemaker scattered five hits and two walks while striking out 10 batters. He's been utterly dominant, sporting a 1.69 ERA in his last seven starts. He last allowed a run in the first inning on July 12, a span of 19 innings. Shoemaker now has a 4.01 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP, and a 101/27 K/BB ratio over 110 innings. He'll get the White Sox in a road start next.
Aug 5 - 1:46 AM

Vidal Nuno gave up three runs over 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday.

Nuno served up two homers among his five hits allowed, and he also walked two. The start was Nuno's first of the season after making 14 starts last year. The lefty has a 2.88 ERA and 1.16 WHIP overall, and he'll stay in the rotation with J.A. Happ gone. Nuno will take his next turn Monday against the Orioles.
Aug 5 - 1:43 AM

Carlos Carrasco was spectacular on Tuesday, tossing nine shutout innings and allowing only one hit, but was left with a no-decision as the Indians needed 12 innings to topple the Angels.

Carrasco has been hot-and-cold throughout the year, but he was very much on point on Tuesday. David Murphy got the only hit off the right-hander with a single to lead off the fifth. The right-hander walked one and struck out seven, lowering his ERA to 3.76 with a 1.09 WHIP and a 147/28 K/BB ratio over 136 1/3 innings. Carrasco will look for similar results his next time out, a home start against the Yankees.
Aug 5 - 1:43 AM

Giovanny Urshela smacked a two-run home run in the 12th inning to break a scoreless tie, allowing the Indians to beat the Angels on Tuesday.

Urshela finished 3-for-5 with a double on the night. The Indians were able to pound out 10 hits and draw three walks, but couldn't capitalize until the 12th. It was a welcome night for Urshela, as he had been held hitless since the fifth inning on July 30. He's batting .247/.283/.367 with four home runs and 12 RBI.
Aug 5 - 1:40 AM

Jon Gray allowed three runs -- two earned -- over four innings in his major league debut on Tuesday.

Taking on the Mariners, Gray struck out four while giving up five hits and two walks. He didn't factor in the decision. The 23-year-old has huge upside but is pitching on a losing team that plays its home games in a hitter's ballpark. Gray will get a chance to pitch in a normal atmosphere when the Rockies travel to face the Mets on Monday.
