Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with a two-run bomb on Wednesday against the Cardinals.

The home run put the Mets ahead in the seventh inning but the Cardinals came back to win in the ninth. Cespedes has been banged up lately and missed some games, but he looked good tonight. He is slashing a whopping .297/.367/.566 but his counting stats have not been quite as pretty. He has 22 home runs, 49 runs and 58 RBI. His weak-hitting teammates haven't given him the support he needs to score and drive in runs.

Jon Gray led the Rockies to a 3-1 victory on Wednesday by holding the Orioles to one run in seven innings, allowing five hits and two walks while fanning three.

His record improves to 7-4 with a 3.94 ERA. His owners will happily take the win without complaining about the lack of strikeouts today. For the season Gray has averaged more than a strikeout per inning (114 whiffs in 109 2/3 innings) but he wasn't missing bats in this game. He lines up for two starts at home next week, which presents his owners with a dilemma if they fear Coors Field.

Dylan Bundy gave up three runs while garnering eight strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings and took a loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.

He allowed only two base hits but both of them were home runs. Bundy was making his third consecutive start after making 21 relief appearances earlier this season. He has a solid 3.46 ERA with 49 strikeouts in 52 innings. A few years ago he was the top pitching prospect in baseball. After several injury-ravaged seasons, Bundy is now healthy and pitching effectively in the majors at the age of 23. He is an attractive commodity in keeper and dynasty leagues.

Carlos Estevez pitched a clean ninth inning with one strikeout to lock down his 10th save of the season on Wednesday.

He stumbled into the closer's role in Colorado a few weeks ago after the guys ahead of him got hurt, and has pitched plenty well enough to hold onto the job for awhile. Pitching in Coors Field would leave even the best relievers prone to the occasional blowup. Estevez's high walk rate is reason for concern but it hasn't hurt him too badly yet. He has 42 strikeouts and 17 walks in 37 1/3 innings to go with his 3.86 ERA.
Jul 27 - 10:47 PM

David Dahl cracked his first career home run while going 1-for-4 on Wednesday night.

The rookie was playing his third game since being called up on Monday. He could be a very solid all-around fantasy stat producer in Coors Field. He had 18 homers, 17 steals and a .314 batting average in the minors this year.
Jul 27 - 10:41 PM

Manny Machado cracked a solo home run for his only hit and the Orioles' only run of the night on Wednesday.

Machado is having a fantastic season. Now slashing .311/.369/.552 with 21 longballs, 68 runs and 57 RBI. The only thing he doesn't do is run -- he hasn't stolen a base all year after swiping 20 last year.
Jul 27 - 10:35 PM

Gerrit Cole allowed only one run in a masterful 10-1 complete game victory over the Mariners on Wednesday.

He struck out six batters without walking any and held the Mariners to only three base hits in the entire game. He was able to go the distance on only 94 pitches, 70 of which were strikes. The stellar victory moves him to 6-6 with a 2.78 ERA on the season. He has fanned 73 batters against 23 walks in 87 1/3 innings. Perhaps most impressively he has surrendered only three home runs on the season.
Jul 27 - 10:28 PM

James Paxton surrendered three earned runs on six hits in five innings of work against the Pirates on Wednesday, fanning six while walking only one in the loss.

Now with a 4.27 ERA and a 61/17 K/BB ratio in 65 1/3 innings, Paxton has been victimized by an unlucky .376 BABIP this season. He has attracted attention around the league this year due to a big three MPH increase in his fastball velocity. At 97.2 MPH he trails only Noah Syndergaard among starting pitchers.
