Kole Calhoun turned in his fourth straight two-hit game Tuesday, finishing 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in a win over the Rockies.

The outfielder has been on a tear in recent days, going 8-for-19 with three doubles, two homers, 10 RBI and seven runs scored over his past four games. The good stretch has helped raise his line just in time for the All-Star break, as he's now hitting .268/.322/.406 with nine homers, 46 RBI and 35 runs scored. He's still got a few more days to improve on those numbers before the break.

Albert Pujols hit his American League-leading 26th home run against the Rockies on Tuesday.

Pujols and company took advantage of Rockies starter Chad Bettis for four home runs on the evening, with Pujols' first inning blast getting the show started. The homer was a three-run shot, and he finished 1-for-5 with three RBI in the contest. As the first half draws to a close, the 35-year-old is now hitting .264/.335/.561 with his 26 homers, 56 RBI and 51 runs scored.
Jul 8 - 12:32 AM

Chris Iannetta went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

Iannetta walked and scored in the second inning before hitting a two-run dinger in the third. The homer was his first since May 28 and his fourth overall. He's hitting just .193/.313/.292 on the year.
Jul 8 - 12:28 AM

Chad Bettis played gracious host to the Angels on Tuesday, allowing 10 runs over 2 1/3 innings in defeat.

Bettis was especially generous with the gopher ball, giving up four homers among his eight hits allowed. Prior to Tuesday, he'd only allowed four homers all season. The start predictably did a number on his ERA, raising it from 3.67 to 4.95. The loss dropped him to 4-4 through 11 starts. He'll make one more start before the All-Star break, taking on the Braves on Sunday.
Jul 8 - 12:23 AM

Andrew Heaney tossed a strong 7 1/3 innings against the Rockies on Tuesday, allowing two runs in a win.

Heaney handled Coors Field like a pro, giving up eight hits but keeping the ball in the park for the most part. He did serve up a solo homer to Drew Stubbs, but he was otherwise solid. The lefty didn't walk a batter while striking out five. The win moved him to 2-0 through three starts. He'll take a 1.77 ERA and 0.84 WHIP into a Sunday start at the Mariners in the first half finale.
Jul 8 - 12:22 AM

Manny Banuelos held the Brewers to one run over 5 1/3 innings to earn his first major league win, a 4-3 victory, on Tuesday.

The second batter of the game, Jonathan Lucroy, hit a solo shot off Banuelos, but the southpaw locked it down after that. Banuelos scattered five hits and three walks on the evening. The 24-year-old has been effective, if brief, in his two major league starts, throwing a combined 11 innings while allowing just the one run. A date with the Rockies in Colorado on Sunday may not be so friendly to Banuelos.
Jul 8 - 12:11 AM

Jonathan Lucroy hit his second home run of the season Tuesday against the Braves.

The solo homer was the only run the Brewers got against Braves starter Manny Banuelos. It was a long time coming for Lucroy, whose first and only other homer came on June 5. After taking some time to get his feet under him, Lucroy has hit better in recent weeks. He's now batting .250/.313/.335 and, health willing, should have a much better second half of the season.
Jul 8 - 12:10 AM

A.J. Pierzynski finished 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Pierzynski hit a solo home run in the second inning before adding an RBI single in the fourth. The game was an extension of Pierzynski's torrid stretch in recent days, as he's now 10-for-13 with three doubles and the home run in his last three games. The outburst has Pierzynski's season line up to .289/.323/.455 with six homers and 29 RBI.
