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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ryan Braun reached base four times Tuesday, going 2-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored as the Brewers downed the Padres 4-1.
Braun also stole his 16th base of the season in the game. The outfielder has four doubles in his last three games, and he's scored a run in each of his last five. Braun is now hitting .273/.345/.497 with 19 homers, 63 RBI and 63 runs scored overall.
Francisco Rodriguez worked a perfect ninth inning against the Padres on Tuesday to earn his 24th save of the season.
Rodriguez stayed put at the trade deadline, and he was called on Tuesday for his first save chance since the deadline passed. He had no problem closing out the Padres, striking out one in the perfect inning. The right-hander now has a 1.42 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 43/9 K/BB ratio over 38 innings this year.
