Tanner Roark was tagged for six runs in 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Friday.

Roark threw 113 pitches and didn’t make it out of the fifth inning. All told, he allowed seven hits (including a homer) while walking four and striking out seven. He’s now given up 10 runs in 8 1/3 innings over his last two starts, bring his ERA up from 3.63 to 4.27 in the process. He’ll try to work deeper into his next start, which will also be against the Phillies, this time on the road.

Odubel Herrera had four hits and scored four runs while homering in his fifth straight game Friday against the Nationals.

Now that's a monster day. Herrera kept the streak alive with a two-run blast against Tanner Roark in the third inning. His other three hits fell for singles. The power is understandably getting most of the attention, but Herrera is also piling up the hits in general. He’s hitting .472 (17-for-36) over his last eight games. His batting average has soared from .283 to .308 during that time.

Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a homer, four RBI, two walks, and three runs scored in Friday’s blowout win over the Nationals.

Santana plated two runs with a single in the first before launching a two-run blast in the sixth. The 32-year-old is still hitting just .228 this year, but he’s put up 12 homers and a .360 on-base percentage while driving in 45 runs. He has a pretty good chance of pacing his career-high of 87 RBI as the cleanup man in this lineup.

Nick Williams went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a walk as part of Friday’s win over the Nationals.

Williams knocked in a run with a single in the fifth inning before bringing home two more with a single in the eighth. The 24-year-old suffered a broken nose Monday after a ball bounced off the right field fence and hit him in the face, but fortunately the injury didn’t require an extended absence. Williams showed some signs of life in May, but he has struggled to keep it going this month. He’s batting .238/.308/.429 with eight homers and 24 RBI through 66 games.

Michael Taylor went 1-for-4 with an RBI double, a run scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Phillies.

Taylor currently leads the majors with 22 steals. He’s already established a new career-high, topping his 17 steals from last year. The 27-year-old has produced a mediocre .243/.307/.396 batting line on the year, but he’s been excellent over the past month. Unfortunately, he’s found himself the odd man out in recent days with the Nationals trying to keep young sensation Juan Soto in the lineup.

Matt Olson went 2-for-4 and swatted his 16th home run of the season as the Athletics dropped the nightcap of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Olson got the Athletics on the board in the first inning with an RBI single, then smashed a solo homer in the sixth that pulled them to within a run at 3-2. With the two-hit attack, he's now slashing .240/.320/.458 with 16 long balls and 39 RBI.
Jun 22 - 11:05 PM

Chris Bassitt was hit hard as the Athletics dropped the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Bassitt allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits over his 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander struck out four while issuing only one free pass. The White Sox pushed three runs across in the second inning, then Bassitt settled in and didn't allow them to score again until the sixth. Even with this rough outing, he still owns a respectable 3.86 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season. He makes for an interesting streaming option for Wednesday's start against the Tigers in Detroit.
Jun 22 - 11:00 PM

Willy Adames went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Friday’s 2-1 victory over the Yankees.

Adames got the Rays on the board in the fourth inning before C.J. Cron added a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning for what proved to be some valuable insurance. The Rays appear committed to giving Adames an extended opportunity at shortstop, but he’s struggled to make consistent contact so far. He’s batting .208 with 21 strikeouts through 48 at-bats. This was his first multi-hit game since June 12.
