Jimmy Nelson struck out eight batters over six innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Braves on Tuesday.

Nelson scattered four hits and three walks, with only a Mallex Smith RBI triple in the fifth inning counting against him. Nelson has now turned in three straight starts of six innings or more with two runs or fewer allowed, lowering his season ERA to 2.92. Unfortunately for the 26-year-old, he's 0-1 in that three-game span and just 4-3 overall. Nelson will look for a better fate Sunday against the Reds.

Justin Verlander punched out 10 batters across eight shutout innings in Tuesday's victory over the Phillies.

The Phils were simply overmatched in this one. Verlander yielded only three hits -- two singles -- on the night while walking a pair. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus elected to pull him rather than let him go for the shutout, as Verlander was sitting at 108 pitches. Verlander has two 10-strikeout games in a row and has allowed just four runs over his last four starts. He'll try to keep it going the next time out against the Angels.

Nick Ahmed left Tuesday's game against the Pirates after taking a pitch off his face.

Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero caught Ahmed in the chin, an inning after striking Jean Segura in the side of the batting helmet. The pitches didn't look intentional -- just incredibly wild -- but Caminero was ejected anyway and both benches were warned. Ahmed will presumably be tested for both facial fractures and a concussion. He was able to walk off the field under his own power.

Francisco Rodriguez allowed a run but hung on to record career save No. 400 in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

K-Rod got into hot water right off the bat by allowing a double to Freddy Galvis and single to Maikel Franco, but he retired the next three batters, giving up just the one run on a sac fly. The reliever becomes the sixth ever to reach the 400-save plateau, and he's the active leader in the category.

Colby Rasmus was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Orioles for arguing a called third strike.

Rasmus took issue with Dana DeMuth's strike zone in the bottom of the sixth and apparently uttered one of the magic words. Jake Marisnick took over in center field. Rasmus finished the evening 0-for-3.
May 24 - 10:11 PM

Troy Tulowitzki left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with tightness in his right quad.

Tulowitzki was 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base before exiting. He may have injured the quad on that swipe of second base in the top of the seventh. Ryan Goins moved to shortstop and catcher Russell Martin took over at second to close out the 6-0 loss. Tulo will be reevaluated by the Blue Jays training staff on Wednesday.
May 24 - 10:08 PM

Jeremy Hellickson struck out seven and allowed three runs over seven innings in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

The Tigers struck with a run in the first, but Hellickson settled in for a while before coughing up a couple more tallies in the sixth. It was a good showing in what was a tough matchup, but he was easily out-distanced by Justin Verlander. The Phillies' righty will carry a 3.97 ERA into next week's start versus the Nationals.

Alex Rodriguez finished 2-for-4 in his first rehab game Tuesday with Double-A Trenton.

It could also be his final rehab game, with rumors swirling that the Yankees might activate him Wednesday. A-Rod hit an RBI single up the middle in the third inning and singled to load the bases in the seventh. Trenton pulled him in the ninth with the game tied 2-2. Rodriguez has been on the disabled list since May 4 because of a strained right hamstring.
