Josh Hamilton finished 3-for-6 with a double, a solo home run, and 3 RBI, but it wasn't enough as the Angels were bested in 12 innings by the Orioles on Tuesday.

Hamilton put the Angels on the board early with a first inning ground out, hit a solo homer in the fifth, and knocked in his third run with a single in the seventh. It was his first home run since July 2, but Hamilton has otherwise had a productive season when he has been healthy. He owns a .293/.365/.442 slash line with six home runs and 32 RBI.

Manny Machado sent the Orioles home winners, belting a walk-off solo home run to left field in the 12th inning on Tuesday against the Angels.

Machado went into the at-bat 1-for-5 with an RBI double, and wasted no time ending the ballgame as he was the first batter reliever Cory Rasmus faced in the 12th. The third baseman has a respectable .268/.314/.430 slash line with 11 home runs and 27 RBI this season.
Jul 29 - 11:16 PM

Mike Zunino doubled and hit a solo home run in three at-bats as the Mariners topped the Indians by a 5-2 margin on Tuesday.

The catcher has now homered in back-to-back ballgames, giving him 16 on the season. Zunino has been lackluster in the average and on-base departments, but he has provided power out of the middle of the Mariners' lineup. He owns a .214/.265/.435 slash line with 38 RBI.

Henderson Alvarez threw seven scoreless innings in the Marlins' 3-0 shutout of the Nationals on Tuesday.

Alvarez had one sticky situation in the second inning that required a bit of magic -- and some luck -- but he otherwise quieted the Nationals over his seven innings. The right-hander allowed just three hits and walked four on the evening. The All-Star moved to 8-5 with a 2.48 ERA through 22 starts this season, and he'll square off with the Reds on Sunday.
Jul 29 - 11:06 PM

Fernando Rodney allowed a single, but was able to preserve the Mariners' three-run lead in the ninth inning in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

With back-to-back strikeouts to end the ninth inning, Rodney pushed his AL-best save total to 29. Only a handful of closers have been better than the veteran Rodney, who has blown only three saves and has a 2.11 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 48/17 K/BB ratio.
Jul 29 - 11:06 PM

Dustin Ackley went 3-for-5 with a two-run double as the Mariners defeated the Indians on Tuesday.

Ackley drove in the middle two runs in a four-run fourth inning, doubling to right field off of Trevor Bauer. The 26-year-old has been red-hot since returning from the break, as he holds a .444 average (20-for-45) in 11 games since. The Mariners hope it's a sign of things to come, as Ackley's numbers overall aren't too great -- he has a .256/.303/.372 slash line with four home runs and 34 RBI.
Jul 29 - 11:03 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

Stanton broke a scoreless tie with his 25th double of the season in the sixth inning. He added an RBI single in the eighth. The two runs batted in added to his NL-leading total of 71 RBI. It's shaping up to be a career year for the outfielder, who's hitting .293/.393/.535 overall.
Jul 29 - 11:02 PM

Trevor Bauer was hit hard by the Mariners on Tuesday, surrendering five runs over 4 1/3 innings en route to a loss.

Bauer had been on a streak of four consecutive quality starts, but the Mariners were able to rip five extra-base hits -- including a Mike Zunino home run -- off of the right-hander. He allowed eight hits overall along with a walk and three strikeouts. Bauer will take a 4.25 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP into Sunday's home start against the Rangers.
