Jeff Mathis delivered a two-run double in the seventh inning on Friday, leading the Marlins to a 2-0 victory over the Astros.

That would prove to be more than enough run support for Brad Hand who was outstanding on the hill for the Marlins. That critical knock was the lone hit in four at-bats on the night for Mathis, who is hitting just .200/.285/.282 on the season.

Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) had an RBI single and a stolen base in his return to action Friday against the Rangers.

It was the only offense of the night for the A's. Cespedes sat out Thursday's game after he sprained his right thumb on an awkward swing on Wednesday, but it shouldn't be a lingering issue.

Steve Cishek slammed the door on the Astros on Friday, setting down the side in order in the ninth inning, including a pair of strikeouts.

It's the second straight day that Cishek has fired a perfect inning in a save situation, and he has now converted 25 of his 28 chances on the year. There have been some rumblings that he could be made available before the trade deadline, but regardless of what jersey he wears he should remain a very steady source of saves.

Brad Hand absolutely dominated the Astros offense on Friday, hurling 7 1/3 shutout innings while allowing just three hits.

Hand punched out four on the night while walking two. The 24-year-old now owns a 4.19 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 36/24 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 innings on the season. He remains an unattractive fantasy option when he takes on the Nationals at home on Wednesday.

Playing in the majors for the first time since the 2009 season, Gregorio Petit went 1-for-2 in a losing effort against the Marlins on Friday.

With Marwin Gonzalez struggling to recover from a hamstring injury, Petit could stand to see additional playing time over the next couple of weeks. He was having a nice season at Triple-A Oklahoma City, slashing .297/.340/.457 with 10 homers and 43 RBI.
Jul 25 - 11:28 PM

Jesus Guzman's nightmarish 2014 season continued in Friday's loss to the Marlins, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout.

The main reason that Guzman has a job on the Astros bench is his ability to mash left-handed pitching, so when he fails to do that it gives cause for concern. He's hitting a mere .197/.274/.268 with two homers and seven RBI in 142 at-bats on the year.
Jul 25 - 11:22 PM

Dallas Keuchel suffered a tough luck loss against the Marlins on Friday, allowing just two unearned runs on nine hits over his seven strong innings.

He punched out seven without issuing a walk on the evening. It was certainly an encouraging start for Keuchel, who appears to be completely over his wrist injury. A defensive miscue by Kike Hernandez ended up being responsible for a pair of runs scoring in the seventh inning, and that was the only offense in the ballgame. He'll bring a 3.11 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 99/30 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Athletics.
Jul 25 - 11:19 PM

Jose Abreu launched his 30th home run of the season on Friday, powering the White Sox to a 9-5 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

The White Sox came out of the gate firing in this one, with a pair of singles to start the game followed by Abreu’s three-run blast off Kevin Correia. He finished the night 2-for-5 with three RBI and a pair of runs scored, and is now hitting .292/.341/.620 with 30 long balls and 77 RBI in his first 353 big league at-bats. He's easily the favorite to take home Rookie of the Year honors in the American League.
