Brandon McCarthy held the Phillies to one run over 5 2/3 frames Tuesday in the Braves' 3-1 victory.

The tall right-hander struck out five on the night, walked a couple and gave up four hits. He was pulled with a runner on first base and two out in the sixth and Sam Freeman got out of the inning. McCarthy now holds a 2.08 ERA over four starts against the Phillies this season and a 6.53 ERA versus everyone else. He’ll take on the Mets – not the Phillies – next.

Vince Velasquez fanned nine but couldn’t get through the fifth in Tuesday, giving up two runs – one earned – over 4 1/3 frames in a loss to the Braves.

Failing to pitch deep into a game is nothing new for Velasquez, of course, although he had gone at least six his last two times out. A throwing error by Nick Williams led to an unearned run and the righty’s exit in the fifth. Velasquez now boasts a 64/19 K/BB ratio across 51 2/3 frames but also a 4.18 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. He gets the Dodgers next.

Arodys Vizcaino notched his ninth save of the season with a perfect ninth inning Tuesday in Philadelphia.

It was one of the easier save opportunities Vizcaino has had, as he was dealing with a two-run lead and facing the 6-7-8 hitters in the Phillies' order. He set them down in order on 13 pitches. Vizcaino has had some shaky moments and the Braves have closer alternatives in A.J. Minter and Dan Winkler, but Vizcaino remains the preferred option for now.

Dansby Swanson wore the golden sombrero with strikeouts in all four of his plate appearances Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Swanson had the game-winning two-RBI single in the Braves' big comeback win over the Marlins, but that's one of just two hits he's had in 14 at-bats since returning from the disabled list. He now has a 28.5 percent strikeout rate and a 5.1 percent walk rate this season, which is a big step back from his 21.8 percent strikeout rate and 10.7 percent walk rate from last season.

Gary Sanchez made an early exit from Tuesday's game against the Rangers due to cramping in his calf.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters after the game that it's nothing serious, though Sanchez may need a day off. He was 0-for-1 with two walks before exiting in the sixth inning. The 25-year-old catcher is slashing .230/.331/.547 with 12 home runs and 33 RBI in 41 games this season.

Ozzie Albies clubbed a solo home run, reached base three times and scored three runs in the Braves' win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Albies briefly tied Bryce Harper for the National League lead in home runs with his 14th in the third inning before Harper later went deep to retake solo possession of the lead. He also singled and walked and with his three runs in this one and now leads the NL by eight with his 45 runs scored.

Rhys Hoskins went 0-for-4 with a couple strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

He wasn't the only one, as the Phillies managed just seven hits and one run against Brandon McCarthy and the Braves' bullpen. Hoskins homered over the weekend in St. Louis, but that's the only hit he's had in 19 at-bats over his last five games. He's still sporting a healthy .373 OBP, but his average is down to .237.

Mitch Haniger was removed from Tuesday's game against the Athletics after getting hit on the elbow by a pitch.

Trevor Cahill plunked him to lead off the top of the fourth inning. Haniger remained in the game initially, but Andrew Romine replaced him in right field in the bottom of the fifth. It's likely a day-to-day situation.
