Lance Lynn yielded two runs -- one earned -- over six innings in a 3-1 loss to the Padres on Tuesday.

Lynn struck out six, walked three and surrendered four hits. The right-hander came into the game with a 1.75 ERA in July. Outside of a seven-run implosion against the Dodgers on June 28, Lynn hasn't given up more than two runs in a start since June 6. Now 11-8 with a 2.98 ERA, Lynn looks to keep up the good vibes when he welcomes the Brewers to St. Louis on Sunday.

Daniel Descalso left Tuesday's game versus the Padres after being hit on the right knee by a pitch.

Descalso was able to limp down to first base but was then replaced by pinch-runner Peter Bourjos. He'll likely be re-evaluated Wednesday before the Cardinals know how much time he might miss.

Josh Harrison homered in his third consecutive game, helping the Pirates to a 3-1 win over the Giants on Tuesday.

He finished 1-for-3 with a walk. Harrison is smoking hot, going 7-for-12 with three homers and four RBI in his last three games. Keep riding the wave while Harrison is surfing, but you never know when he'll be washed ashore. For instance, Harrison was 5-for-27 in his previous eight games prior to his last three.

Buster Posey went 3-for-4 Tuesday in a 3-1 setback against the Pirates.

Posey came into tonight in a 3-for-17 slump, so it was nice to see the big game, though it came without an extra-base hit, run scored or RBI. It was that kind of night for the offense, and it's been that kind of week for the Giants, who are free-falling. San Francisco has been outscored 27-6 during its current six-game losing streak.

Francisco Liriano struck out 11 Giants, yielding one run over seven innings to earn his third victory on Tuesday.

In addition to his season-high punch out total, Liriano issued only one free pass and scattered four hits. The only one that really counted was Mike Morse's solo homer in the third, but Pittsburgh fortunately already held a 3-0 lead. Liriano was dominant from there on out, and Tony Watson and Mark Melancon pitched in an inning of shutout relief work apiece. The left-handed Liriano entered the game 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three starts since returning from the disabled list (oblique strain). Many owners jumped ship when he hit the shelf with a 1-6 record and 4.60 ERA last month. That just means there's room on board for the rest of us, who should make sure the former Twin is owned across formats. Liriano travels to Arizona on Sunday.

Tim Hudson gave up three runs on six hits over seven innings Tuesday in a loss to the Pirates.

Hudson struck out two, walked one, and yielded two homers which accounted for all the runs charged to him. Indeed, he pitched pretty well outside Josh Harrison's solo homer in the first and Travis Snider's two-run shot in the following frame. Over his first seven home starts this season, the right-hander went 5-0 with a 2.16 ERA, but he's now lost four straight at AT&T Park. Those numbers are systemic of his overall struggles. Hudson started the year 7-2 with a 1.81 ERA in 13 starts, but entered 1-5 with a 4.40 ERA in his past seven. Hudson toes the rubber against the Mets in New York next week.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies are expected to hang on to LaTroy Hawkins.

Hawkins is 41 and would have some value on a contending team in a middle relief role, but the Rockies like his veteran presence and plan to pick up his $2.25 million club option for 2015. Hawkins has saved 17-of-18 chances this season while sporting a 3.09 ERA. The Pirates and a couple other clubs had expressed interest.
Jul 30 - 12:47 AM

Brett Gardner continued his hot hitting on Tuesday, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, a home run and three runs scored in the Yankees' 12-11 victory over the Rangers.

Gardner is now 7-for-10 with three home runs and five runs scored in the first two games of the series. His three runs give him 67 runs scored for the year, sixth-most in the American League. The 30-year-old's hit parade has his triple slash line up to .283/.357/.455, and if the season ended today he would set personal bests in both slugging percentage and OPS.
