Mike Bolsinger yielded two runs on eight hits in five innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the A's.

Moved up to start after ace Clayton Kershaw was scratched due to a sore hip, Bolsinger struck out three and walked three in a pedestrian performance. Bolsinger, who entered 5-3 with a 2.79 ERA in 15 starts, is no doubt hoping the Dodgers' rumored trades for starting pitching don't knock him out of the rotation.

Jesse Chavez scuffled Wednesday night against the Dodgers, surrendering three runs over five innings in a no-decision.

Chavez got a gift when opposing starter Clayton Kershaw was scratched before first pitch, but he couldn't capitalize. The 31-year-old hurler hasn't completed seven innings in a month-and-a-half and he'd given up four runs in three of his four July outings before tonight, causing his ERA to jump from 3.02 to 3.53 after tonight's outing. He'll try to turn things around against the Orioles on Monday, kicking off a two-start week.
Jul 30 - 1:40 AM

Colby Lewis allowed two runs over six innings Wednesday in a win over the Yankees.

Lewis struck out five and walked none in winning for the 11th time this season. He's one of just 12 pitchers in baseball with that many victories, though his ERA is a far less impressive 4.42. In fairness, the ERA reflects a couple of huge beatings and doesn't perfectly reflect how well he's pitched, either. Still, there isn't really any mixed-league value here.
Jul 30 - 12:45 AM

Masahiro Tanaka yielded four runs and nine hits in six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Rangers.

Most of Tanaka's issues this year have been with the home run ball. Tonight, though, he never allowed one. However, he did walk three and strike out just three. He had just one previous three-walk start this season and none with as few strikeouts. In fact, he had a 71/10 K/BB ratio in his previous 11 starts. So, this one looks like an aberration. He gets a bumbling Red Sox lineup next time out.

Shin-Soo Choo went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's win over the Yankees.

Choo was hitting eighth tonight despite his recent success. He's batting .387 with nine RBI in nine games since the All-Star break. Still, he's probably not going to get another look at the top of the order unless Delino DeShields Jr. slumps.
Jul 30 - 12:38 AM

Carlos Beltran hit his eighth homer Wednesday against the Rangers.

Beltran didn't get to partake in the fun of Tuesday's 21-5 game, having received the night off. The homer was his first in eight games since he returned from the disabled list. He's 5-for-26 with two RBI overall in that span.
Jul 30 - 12:36 AM

Anthony DeSclafini shut out the Cardinals for seven innings, allowing just three hits, to win Wednesday.

DeSclafini won for the first time since June 9. He's been pretty mediocre since opening the season with a 1.04 ERA in April, but there's little reason to disappoint. Some thought he might be a long-term reliever when the Reds picked him up from the Marlins in the Mat Latos trade, but he's shown enough to suggest he'll last a middle-of-the-rotation guy instead.
Jul 30 - 12:24 AM

John Lackey took a tough loss after allowing just one run and two hits over eight innings Wednesday against the Reds.

Anthony DeSclafini was just a little better. Lackey was at 88 pitches and probably could have gone for the complete-game loss tonight if the Cardinals hadn't needed to pinch-hit for him in the bottom of the eighth. He's now 9-6 with a 2.78 ERA.
