Jake Smolinski singled, doubled twice, scored twice, and drove in three runs as the Rangers were hammered in a loss to the Angels on Thursday.

Smolinski has been on fire to begin his major league career, as he has had back-to-back-to-back multi-hit games in his first three big league starts. The 25-year-old outfielder doubled in two runs in the first inning to cut the Angels' lead to 4-2, and doubled in another run in the ninth inning. In 14 plate appearances, Smolinski has eight hits (including three doubles) and four RBI.

Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, but the Rangers were trampled by the Angels on Thursday.

Beltre hit a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth inning, but by then, it was too little, too late as the Rangers still trailed 13-4. Beltre has been nearly unstoppable at the plate, as the veteran has 13 home runs, 50 RBI, and a sterling .341/.385/.545 slash line.
Jul 10 - 11:32 PM

Josh Hamilton doubled three times in five at-bats, knocking in two runs and scoring twice as the Angels handily defeated the Rangers on Thursday.

Hamilton doubled in a run and scored in the first inning, and did the same thing in the second. Hamilton added his third double in the eighth, but was stranded at third base. Call it a slump-buster, as the outfielder had logged only one hit in his previous 21 plate appearances entering the game. Hamilton is slashing a productive .293/.374/.451 with five home runs and 25 RBI on the season.
Jul 10 - 11:29 PM

Kole Calhoun went 4-for-5, scoring four runs and ripping an RBI double in Thursday's win against the Rangers.

Calhoun and Mike Trout, the Angels' 1-2 hitters, combined to reach base eight times, score seven runs, and knock in five of their own. It's no surprise that the Angels' win was a laugher. Calhoun, 26, is having a breakout season, slashing .305/.366/.542 with 10 home runs, 25 RBI, and 48 runs scored.
Jul 10 - 11:27 PM

Mike Trout went 4-for-5 with a home run, four RBI, and three runs scored as the Angels routed the Rangers on Thursday.

Trout singled in a run in the second, then blasted a three-run home run in the third inning. Shortly into the season's fourth month, Trout has been making a strong case to win his first career AL MVP award. The 22-year-old has 21 home runs, 68 RBI, 10 stolen bases, and a .310/.401/.602 slash line.

Tommy Medica left Thursday's game against the Dodgers with right groin tightness.

It's not clear how long he might be sidelined, but the Padres should provide more on Medica's status after the game. Rene Rivera replaced Medica at first base Thursday.
Jul 10 - 11:12 PM

T.J. House struggled, allowing three runs in 4 2/3 innings but escaped with a no-decision as the Indians came from behind to defeat the Yankees 9-3 on Thursday.

House served up two runs in the fourth, allowing a two-run home run to Zelous Wheeler. With two outs in the fifth, the Yankees strung together a hit batsman and two singles to score another run. Vinnie Pestano was able to get the final out of the inning to end the threat, however. House has a 4.40 ERA, a 1.53 WHIP, and a 30/11 K/BB ratio heading into the All-Star break.
Jul 10 - 11:03 PM

David Phelps was squeezed out of a win due to the Yankees' bullpen after holding the Indians to just two runs over six innings on Thursday.

Phelps has now put together three solid outings in a row but he has nary a win to show for it. On Thursday, he yielded seven hits, walked three, and struck out five. Once he left the game, Matt Thornton and Jim Miller combined to allow seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings. Phelps heads into the All-Star break with a 3.94 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 76/36 K/BB ratio.
