Dan Uggla went 0-for-2 before being removed in a double-switch in his Giants debut Friday.

Uggla wasn't responsible for any of Zack Greinke's 10 strikeouts, so at least he had something going for him. The Giants are facing lefties the next two days, but it won't get much easier for Uggla with Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu on the hill. He's 1-for-12 with six strikeouts lifetime against Kershaw.

Chris Davis homered in the top of the 10th inning to break a 1-1 tie and lead the Orioles past the Mariners 2-1 on Friday.

Davis hasn't had a whole lot of reason to celebrate this year, but he came through in a big spot tonight. It was his 17th homer in 310 at-bats this year, which is still a pretty good clip, even if it's well off last year's pace. The problem is that he has just 36 singles and 10 doubles on the year, leaving him with a .203 average.

Kevin Gausman held serve against Felix Hernandez on Friday, limiting the Mariners to one run in 6 2/3 innings.

Hernandez got one more out and certainly had the more dominant effort, but Gausman got the outs when they mattered and gave the Orioles a chance to win. He allowed seven hits, walked three and struck out three. It was the sixth time in nine starts that he's allowed one or no runs.

Felix Hernandez wasn't involved in the decision after allowing one run over seven innings and striking out 10 Friday against the Orioles.

This makes 13 starts in a row of seven or more innings and no more than two runs allowed. The Mariners have won 10 of those outings, with seven of the wins getting credited to Hernandez. Tonight, though, they lost 2-1 in 10 innings.

Steve Pearce fanned all four times up Friday versus the Mariners.

Pearce is in his first minislump in a while, going 1-for-16 with eight strikeouts in his last four games. He was so good for the Orioles for two months that he figures to get a little rope. However, if he doesn't pick it up these next few days, the team might go hunting for another left field/DH option before the deadline.

Brad Miller, who is playing for his job, walked three times and struck out once as the Mariners' No. 9 hitter on Saturday.

Miller will certainly be sitting against lefties with Chris Taylor up. How the two split time against right-handers could be a day-to-day decision from Lloyd McClendon. Miller has faded again of late after his strong June, but it's not like his early season swoon when he was striking out every third at-bat; he has an 11/7 K/BB ratio in 53 at-bats this month. He's still the Mariners' best option as a shortstop against righties.

After replacing an injured Josh Hamilton, Efren Navarro went 2-for-3 with a go-ahead single Friday in the Angels' 2-1 win over the Tigers.

Both Angels runs came in the sixth, as Kole Calhoun doubled in Chris Iannetta and Navarro singled in Calhoun. Navarro is hitting .333 with a 3/4 K/BB ratio in 27 at-bats since being called up on July 12. It makes sense for the Angels to use him against all right-handers right now, but they haven't made any sort of commitment to him yet.
Jul 26 - 1:35 AM

Drew Smyly fanned a career-high 11 against the Angels on Friday, but he still took a loss after giving up two runs in 5 2/3 innings.

Smyly struck out 10 on July 6, 2012, but he hadn't fanned more than seven in a start since (partly because he hasn't had much of a chance to work deep into games). He's been sharp in both of his starts since the All-Star break, and while the loss tonight dropped him to 6-9, he still has a solid 3.77 ERA.
