Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with three RBI and a home run in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win against the Tigers.

The home run, a first inning solo shot, was just Hill's eighth of the season. His other two RBI came on a third inning sacrifice fly and a sixth inning RBI groundout. While Hill's batting a rather pedestrian .251/.284/.380 on the year, he's doing a decent job knocking in runs from the two-hole in Arizona's lineup, with 48 RBI notches on the belt as we near August.

Roberto Hernandez got a no-decision, allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings, as the Phillies lost 9-6 in 14 innings to the Giants on Tuesday.

Hernandez was making his first start since July 9. He out-dueled Giants starter Yusmeiro Petit, but the Phillies' bullpen could not hold the lead. Hernandez allowed five hits, walked three, and struck out only one in the effort. He has had an uninspiring season, carrying a 4.25 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 71/54 K/BB ratio. Hernandez matches up next against the D'Backs at home on Sunday.
Jul 23 - 1:12 AM

Erasmo Ramirez allowed two runs and gave up five hits in his seven innings of work against the Mets on Tuesday.

Ramirez made the most of his recent call-up, striking out a season-high ten and walking just two as he lowered his ERA to 4.35. He had the misfortune of facing off against Jacob deGrom, who matched him pitch-for-pitch and ended up with the win, dropping Ramirez to 1-5 on the season. We'll see if the quality effort leads to a few more starts. Prior to this start, his last work had come against the Red Sox in late June.
Jul 23 - 1:10 AM

Yusmeiro Petit went home with a no-decision, allowing five runs in five innings as the Giants outlasted the Phillies in a 14-inning win on Tuesday.

Petit was starting in place of the injured Matt Cain. The top of the Phillies' lineup had his number, particularly in a three-run fifth-inning which included a Jimmy Rollins two-run home run. Overall, Petit yielded seven hits and two walks while striking out five. Pitching mostly out of the bullpen, Petit has a 4.24 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 71/17 K/BB ratio. He'll start against the Dodgers at home on Sunday.
Jul 23 - 1:09 AM

Chase Anderson lasted six innings against the Tigers on Tuesday, scattering five hits while striking out five and walking three.

The damage came on a first inning Miguel Cabrera RBI single and a third inning wild pitch that allowed Austin Jackson to score. Otherwise, Anderson was effective. While the game ended up being decided by the bullpen, this marks back-to-back quality starts for Anderson, whose ERA sits at a solid 3.58. He'll try to keep it going against the Reds in his next outing.
Jul 23 - 1:06 AM

Jimmy Rollins blasted a two-run home run, finishing 1-for-5 with two walks overall, in a 14-inning loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

Rollins gave the Phillies a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run home run off of Yusmeiro Petit. It's his 13th home run of the season and his fifth in his last 10 games. He had six all of last season. The shortstop has had an up-and-down year, and maintains a mediocre .243/.327/.396 slash line with 45 RBI and 19 stolen bases.
Jul 23 - 1:06 AM

Rick Porcello pitched seven innings of three-run ball in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.

The start was almost identical to his last start (against the Royals), as Porcello scattered five hits and struck out five without walking a batter in Arizona. Had Detroit's bullpen held onto a 5-3 eighth inning lead, Porcello would have picked up his thirteenth win. Alas, it was not to be. While he's only striking out 5.05 per nine innings, he's also posting the lowest WHIP of his career (1.18) to go with his 3.42 ERA. Porcello takes on the Angels in his next start.
Jul 23 - 1:05 AM

Ben Revere singled three times in six trips to the plate and stole two bases in a 14-inning loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

Revere was making his first start since July 18 due to ankle soreness. He still ran somewhat gingerly, but was able to raise his batting average four points, swipe two bases, and score two runs. Revere owns an average-heavy .296/.316/.352 slash line with 28 stolen bases in 31 opportunities.
