Mat Latos allowed four runs -- two earned -- over five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Tuesday.
Latos gave up a home run among his four hits allowed, and he also walked three on the evening. The right-hander remains 6-1 with a 4.02 ERA through 10 starts, but he's fallen off after a strong start to the year. His next start will come Tuesday against the Nationals.
Justin Smoak knocked a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.
Smoak's solo shot in the fourth inning knotted the game up, and the Blue Jays went ahead for good with a three-run seventh. The switch-hitter has given the Jays solid production from first base since Chris Colabello was suspended, batting .284 with five homers over 36 contests.
Jake Peavy turned in a surprising gem Tuesday, holding the Braves to one hit over seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory.
Peavy entered the game with a 7.26 ERA over his first 10 starts of the season, so this was unexpected even in a juicy matchup. The veteran right-hander permitted a leadoff single to Tyler Flowers in the fifth inning and that was it, as he faced the minimum through seven frames. He had thrown only 77 pitches, but manager Bruce Bochy had no choice but to pinch-hit for Peavy as the offense rallied in the eighth. Peavy will have a much tougher matchup on Sunday in St. Louis.
Matt Wisler held the Giants to three runs over seven innings but suffered a loss on Tuesday.
Wisler yielded just four hits and two walks on the night, but the Giants were able to push across a run in the sixth and two more runs were charged to the righty in the eighth after he left the game. He has just two wins to show for it on a terrible Braves team, but Wisler has been terrific with a 3.16 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. He'll face the Dodgers on the road Sunday.
Brett Eibner was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Rays with an apparent Achilles injury.
Eibner grabbed at the back of his left leg while trying to track down a ball off the wall in the top of the fifth inning. It turned into a triple for Rays shortstop Brad Miller. Eibner was down on the ground for a while before eventually climbing into a cart. This could be a bad one.
Denard Span went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Tuesday's win over the Giants.
Span tripled in a run in the sixth and singled in a run in the eighth. The Giants had only five hits on the night but held the Braves to just one base knock. Span has upped his average from .253 to .274 over the last six games.
Colby Lewis held the Indians off the scoreboard for six innings in Tuesday's 7-3 win.
Lewis gave up only two hits on the night, and they were both singles. He walked two and struck out two. The veteran right-hander has been far from dominant this season, striking out only 47 over 70 innings. However, he boasts a 3.09 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and a 5-0 record going into June. Lewis will try to keep it going next week against the Astros and Mariners.
Sam Dyson retired the only two batters he faced to record his sixth save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Indians.
The Rangers entered the ninth inning with a five-run lead, but Matt Bush gave up a run and left two runners on before Dyson entered to clean things up. Dyson has converted all four of his save chances since taking over the ninth inning and has allowed just three baserunners and no walk over seven appearances during that stretch.
