Kurt Suzuki went 2-for-4 with a walk-off RBI single in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Mariners.

The Twins faced a 2-1 deficit entering the ninth inning, but rallied with some nice situational hitting and a woeful bullpen performance from the M's. Miguel Sano led off the inning by doubling off Carson Smith, who recorded the next two outs, but also uncorked a wild pitch that allowed pinch-runner Shane Robinson to reach third. Following an intentional walk to Eddie Rosario, Smith delivered yet another wild pitch, which scored Robinson. Rosario would subsequently steal third before Suzuki ended the game with an RBI single. The heroics are fun, but they do little to mask the fact that the veteran catcher is hitting just .234/.290/.305 this season.

Nelson Cruz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

Cruz took Twins starter Kyle Gibson deep for a solo homer to lead off the sixth inning. The bomb was his 28th of the year. He's homered in four of his last seven games, including each of his last two. For the season, he's slashing .316/.380/.576 with the 28 homers and 64 RBI. Cruz will go through his cold streaks, as he did in a tough June, but when he's on, his bat is magical.

Kyle Gibson posted a stellar start against the Mariners in Saturday's no-decision, allowing two runs on six hits over seven innings.

Gibson struck out four and walked one on the evening. A run came home in the first inning on an RBI ground out by Robinson Cano, but Gibson wouldn't allow another one until the sixth inning, when Nelson Cruz took him deep for a solo shot. The Twins would rally from the 2-1 deficit to win 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth. Gibson had allowed 12 runs in his last 10 1/3 innings (covering two starts) and this was a nice rebound. The owner of a 3.37 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 92/40 K/BB ratio in 131 innings, he will take to the road to face the Blue Jays' offensive machine in his next start.

Mike Montgomery pitched well but came away with a no-decision in Saturday's contest with the Twins, as he allowed one run on four hits over six innings.

Montgomery struck out six and walked two in the contest. He was actually in line to earn a tough 2-1 win, but the Mariner bullpen self-destructed and allowed two runs in the bottom of the ninth to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Montgomery struggled with the home run in July, allowing seven taters over the month, but the problem did not rear its head on Saturday. He'll take a 3.07 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start, a home outing against the Rangers.

Rays recalled OF Mikie Mahtook from Triple-A Durham.

He'll replace Steven Souza, who was placed on the disabled list Saturday with a broken hand. This will be Mahtook's fourth stint with the Rays this year. In 11 games, he's hit .208 with two homers and four RBI.
Aug 1 - 11:37 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a double and triple in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

With the big game, Blackmon's now hit six triples. He's slashing .292/.361/.464 with 12 homers and 44 RBI. The Rockies are playing out the string, but that's not Blackmon's fault, and he's hitting toward career highs in multiple offensive categories to this point in the season.
Aug 1 - 11:35 PM

Jhonny Peralta went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

Peralta jerked a Jorge De La Rosa offering out of the park in the fourth inning for his lone hit of the game. The tater was his 16th of the season. In addition to those 16 dingers, Peralta has driven in 54 runs and is hitting .288/.344/.468. He's homered in each of his last two games.

Astros optioned RHP Vincent Velasquez to Double-A Corpus Christi.

Velasquez lost his spot in the rotation when the Astros acquired Scott Kazmir from Oakland last week. The 23-year-old performed admirably during his first big league stint, compiling an impressive 9.29 K/9 in nine appearances. He'll be back with Houston as soon a rotation spot opens up.
