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.

David Holmberg surrendered six runs (two earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Holmberg issued four walks in the contest against two strikeouts. The Yankees broke through on the scoreboard against him with a three-run fourth inning, then plated two more in the sixth. With Carlos Rodon (biceps) set to return to the rotation on Wednesday, Holmberg might find himself the odd man out of the rotation, even with his crisp 2.92 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in six starts this season.

Albert Almora reached all four times he was up Monday, going 1-for-1 with three walks (one intentional) and an RBI.

Almora's playing time has gotten steadier with Jason Heyward out and Kyle Schwarber in Triple-A; he didn't start Sunday, but he has been in the lineup for five of the last six games. He's batting .313 with eight walks in 48 at-bats this month. There isn't enough power or speed here to give him much fantasy upside, but he's doing pretty nice work at the moment.

Ryan Zimmerman went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts Monday in the loss to the Cubs.

Zimmerman is finally slowing down some, and Dusty Baker seems to have noticed; he was rested Wednesday and Sunday. The first baseman is 9-for-43 with two doubles and no homers in his last 10 starts, though he has still driven in seven runs during that span.
Jun 26 - 11:33 PM

Chris Sale fanned nine while giving up one run in 6 1/3 innings Monday in a 4-1 victory over the Twins.

Sale is the third AL starter to 10 wins, joining Jason Vargas and Ervin Santana. He's struck out at least nine in 13 of his 16 starts with the Red Sox.
