Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Monday's win over the White Sox.

The Chase Headley Renaissance continues unabated. He hit an RBI single in the fourth inning and his booming double in the sixth inning nearly left the ballpark. The veteran third baseman has six hits in his last eight at-bats. He has raised his average from .237 to .262 in what has been a torrid month of June.

Eddie Butler blanked the Nationals for five innings to earn a victory on Monday.

Butler might have had a chance to go six innings for the first time since his Cubs debut on May 12 -- he threw just 64 pitches -- but his spot came up with two men on in a 1-0 game in the top of the sixth and the decision was made to hit for him. It didn't work out, but it was still probably the right call in such a tight game. Butler has a 3.71 ERA while throwing a total of 43 2/3 innings in his nine starts for the Cubs. It's earned him four wins to date.

Tim Anderson went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

The White Sox trailed 6-1 heading to the bottom of the ninth inning, but Anderson would sock a three-run homer off Chasen Shreve to force the Yankees to bring Aroldis Chapman into the game. The young shortstop is hitting .253/.278/.377 with seven homers, 24 RBI and five steals over the course of 67 games played for the season as a whole.

Todd Frazier went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Frazier cracked a solo home run off Jordan Montgomery in the second inning. He had a chance to play hero with two outs in the ninth, but flew out to left after just getting under an Aroldis Chapman pitch to strand the potential tying run at second base. For the season as a whole, the slugger is slashing .212/.322/.429 with 13 homers and 36 RBI in 230 at-bats. While the overall numbers are less than impressive, Frazier has hit safely in seven of his last eight games and has bopped three homers in that space.

Wade Davis gave up two runs after coming on in the ninth Monday in the Cubs' win over the Nationals.

Hector Rondon was brought in to finish a 5-0 game, but Joe Maddon got cold feet after he allowed a double and an RBI single with one out. Davis came in and gave up two doubles, a walk and a single before finally striking out Ryan Zimmerman to end it with the tying run on third. Davis is still a perfect 15-for-15 saving games this year, but he has been a more vulnerable of late, giving up runs in four of 10 appearances. Prior to this stretch, he had allowed only an unearned run in 18 appearances.

Jordan Montgomery pitched well in Monday's win over the White Sox, surrendering one run on five hits over seven innings.

Montgomery struck out eight and walked one on the evening. His breaking ball was as sharp as it has looked all season. Todd Frazier smacked a solo home run off the southpaw in the second inning, but he otherwise shut down the White Sox over his seven innings of work. In 14 starts covering 81 2/3 innings this season, Montgomery has pitched to a respectable 3.53 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 79/27 K/BB ratio. He will have his work cut out for him in his next scheduled outing, as he will be hitting the road to take on the Astros

Gio Gonzalez took a tough-luck loss Monday after allowing just one run and two hits in six innings versus the Cubs/

Gio's peripherals still aren't very impressive at all, but he's going to get some All-Star consideration with his 7-2 record and 2.87 ERA in 16 starts. Of course, it would have helped his case if the Nationals could have gotten him off the hook for the loss tonight.

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that Phillies manager Pete Mackanin fined Odubel Herrera an undisclosed amount due to an incident that occurred on Saturday.

Mackanin gave Herrera the red light while the outfielder was at first base in the top of the sixth inning of a game versus the Diamondbacks in what was a 3-2 deficit at the time. Herrera ran anyway and was picked off to end the inning and the Phils wound up losing 9-2. It's not the first time Herrera has made this sort of blunder, as he ran through a stop sign and was thrown out easily in a game last week. Herrera is hitting a disappointing .257/.294/.401 on the season but is batting .333 with 13 doubles in June. He signed a five-year, $30.5 million contract extension with the Phillies over the winter.
