Adam Lind hit his 15th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Lind hit a solo shot off Braves reliever David Aardsma in the eighth inning to cut the deficit to one, but the Brewers wouldn't get any closer. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk on the evening. Lind has been one of the few bright spots for the Brewers in the first half, batting .299/.377/.525 in his first National League go-round. His 52 RBI rank him among the league leaders, and he'll surely continue to draw interest as the trade deadline nears.

Tyler Cravy turned in a quality start Tuesday, allowing three runs over six innings in a loss to the Braves.

Making his second start of the year and his first since June 2, Cravy allowed eight hits and a walk in his six innings of work. He's notched quality starts in both those outings, but he's now 0-2 to show for it. The right-hander owns a 3.00 ERA and 1.27 WHIP overall and won't make another start before the break. How the rotation shakes out afterwards, and whether Cravy remains in it, is yet to be determined.

Orioles optioned RHP Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk.

With an off day on Thursday, the O's don't need a fifth starter for the rest of the first half. Gausman was knocked around for eight runs -- seven earned -- over 3 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Twins but should get another shot at the start of the second half.
Jul 7 - 11:55 PM

Jason Grilli struck out the side in the ninth inning against the Brewers on Tuesday to earn his 24th save.

Grilli came by it honestly, too, getting Scooter Gennett, Gerardo Parra and Jean Segura to go down swinging to earn the save. The 38-year-old has been a very nice surprise for the Braves this season, posting a 2.67 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 45/10 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings. Those numbers will surely add to teams' interest around the trade deadline later this month.
Jul 7 - 11:54 PM

Mark Melancon pitched another scoreless ninth inning, earning his 28th save as the Pirates escaped with a 3-2 victory against the Padres on Tuesday.

We're coming up on two months since Melancon last allowed an earned run. The Padres mounted a bit of a threat when Melvin Upton, Jr. singled with one out, but Melancon got Clint Barmes to line out and Yangervis Solarte to strike out to end the contest. The right-hander has been as reliable as they come, currently 28-for-29 in save opportunities with a 1.54 ERA and a 29/8 K/BB ratio in 41 innings.

Tests showed that Kolten Wong suffered a mild concussion during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Cubs.

Wong said after the game that he passed the test and is fine, but obviously that wasn't the case. That he says he's feeling OK suggests maybe he won't need to go on the 7-day concussion disabled list, but we should know more on Wednesday.
Jul 7 - 11:52 PM

Francisco Liriano held the Padres to two runs in six innings in a no-decision as the Pirates eked out a win on Tuesday.

Liriano scattered four hits and a walk while striking out six. The only two runs scored on Matt Kemp's double in the third inning. The lefty keeps his ERA below 3.00 at 2.99 with a 1.01 WHIP and a 119/35 K/BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings. Liriano will lead the Pirates into the All-Star break with a home start against the Cardinals.
Jul 7 - 11:51 PM

Miguel Sano hit his first major league home run and the Twins raced past the Orioles 8-3 on Tuesday.

Sano hit the blast, a two-run shot, off Orioles starter Kevin Gausman in the first inning. He later collected an RBI walk, finishing 2-for-3 with three RBI. Through six games the 22-year-old has been as advertised, hitting .450 with a 1.242 OPS and five RBI. If all goes as planned, the homer will be the first of many Sano will hit over the course of his career.
