Ryan Ludwick went 1-for-4 with a two-run double against the Marlins on Friday.

Ludwick hit the double in the sixth inning against Chris Hatcher, who was relieving newly minted Marlin Jarred Cosart. The two runs ended up on Cosart's line. The RBI were just Ludwick's 30th and 31st of the season. At a .261/.324/.393 slash line, Ludwick doesn't not merit fantasy consideration.

Huston Street decided to make things interesting on Friday, loading the bases in the ninth inning on Friday before rallying to retire the final three hitters he faced and earn his 29th save.

A pair of singles and a walk put the potential winning run on the bases with no outs to begin the ninth inning, but the veteran closer bore down and punched out Desmond Jennings and Ben Zobrist before getting Matt Joyce on a fly ball. He owns a 0.92 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 42/9 K/BB ratio over 39 innings on the season.

Josh Hamilton belted his seventh home run of the season on Friday, but was forced to leave the game early with a contusion on his left middle finger.

Hamilton was hit by a pitch in his final at-bat before departing. It doesn't sound as though the injury is of the serious variety, so expect him to return to the Angels lineup in a day or two.

Aroldis Chapman struck out one in a scoreless ninth, picking up his 25th save of the season.

Chapman did allow a ninth inning single, but other than that he did what he usually does. He now has 69 strikeouts in just over 35 innings pitched. Chapman has a 2.04 ERA and is 25-for-27 in save opportunities.
Aug 1 - 11:04 PM

Matt Shoemaker picked up his ninth victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Rays to three runs (two earned) on eight hits over his five innings of work.

The young right-hander struck out just one without walking a batter in the ballgame. The Angels terrific bullpen took over from there, with Jason Grilli, Kevin Jepsen, Joe Smith and Huston Street each working a scoreless inning to close out the game. Now 9-3, Shoemaker will carry a 4.09 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 78/15 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Dodgers.

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in a losing effort against the Angels on Friday.

A pair of runs actually scored on his single in the fifth inning, the second of which came across as Longoria was cut down between first and second base. With the two-hit effort, he's now slashing .257/.333/.391 on the season to compliment his 12 homers and 54 RBI.
Aug 1 - 11:00 PM

Desmond Jennings had a miserable night at the plate in Friday's loss to the Angels, going 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts.

The final strikeout was particularly disheartening, as the Rays loaded the bases to start the ninth inning before he whiffed against Huston Street. It has been a disappointing season for the dynamic young outfielder, slashing .238/.323/.381 with nine homers, 28 RBI and 13 swipes.
Aug 1 - 10:57 PM

Anthony Ranaudo picked up his first major league win on Friday, allowing two runs in six innings against the Yankees.

Not only was it his first major league win, it was his first major league start, and it came against the Yankees no less. He walked four and recorded two strikeout. Carlos Beltran accounted for both runs against Ranaudo, with a solo home run in the fourth and RBI single in the sixth. Ranaudo is one of the beneficiaries of Boston's decision to do away with almost their entire rotation. The 6'7" righty had recorded a 2.41 ERA and a 12-4 record through 21 starts at Triple-A Pawtucket.
