Marc Krauss struck out in both of his at-bats Wednesday before being removed for a pinch-hitter.

Incredibly, it's the second time in four games for the Rays that Krauss, a left-handed hitter, has been replaced by a right-handed pinch-hitter against a right-handed pitcher. Which makes one wonder why the Rays are playing him at first base or why they bothered acquiring him in the first place. He's 1-for-10 so far for the team.

Zach Britton struck out the side in the ninth inning to claim his 23rd save of the season on Wednesday's 4-2 win against the Rangers.

Britton tossed 14 pitches to retire Prince Fielder, Adrian Beltre, and Mitch Moreland on strikes consecutively. That is no easy feat. Britton is having an elite year, saving 23 games in 24 opportunities with a 1.82 ERA and a 41/7 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings.
Jul 1 - 9:35 PM

J.J. Hardy went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, which proved to be the difference as the Orioles topped the Rangers on Wednesday.

Hardy slugged a two-run home run in the seventh inning off of Nick Martinez to break a 2-2 tie. It wound up being the game-winning hit. The shortstop had a strong month of June and appears to be carrying it into July. He's hitting .250/.280/.352 with four home runs and 20 RBI since making his season debut on May 7.
Jul 1 - 9:33 PM

Shin-Soo Choo homered in his third consecutive game, going 1-for-3 in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

Choo broke a scoreless tie in the third inning with his solo blast off of Wei-Yin Chen. The outfielder may be starting to heat up. He's batting .233/.315/.405 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI.
Jul 1 - 9:31 PM

Nick Martinez pitched well against the Orioles but faltered late and lost, giving up four runs (three earned) in 6 2/3 innings on Wednesday.

Martinez had allowed one run on a Jimmy Paredes home run through five innings, but allowed a run on a ground out in the sixth and a two-run home run to J.J. Hardy in the seventh before departing. He allowed seven hits overall with a walk and five strikeouts. Aside from a pair of drubbings suffered in June, Martinez has had a terrific 2015 campaign, sporting a 3.43 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP and a 57/34 K/BB ratio over 97 innings. He'll make a home start versus the Diamondbacks next.
Jul 1 - 9:30 PM

Jon Jay (wrist) was held out of batting practice Wednesday and may be a candidate for the disabled list.

Jay was activated from the disabled list on May 29 but has never gotten fully healthy. Since being activated, he's started 17 of the team's 29 games but has hit just .185/.280/.262 in that span. With Matt Holliday nearing a return and Randal Grichuk heating up at the plate, it may behoove the Cards to give Jay some more time on the DL to get his wrist right.
Jul 1 - 9:27 PM

Wei-Yin Chen tossed eight dominant innings in a win against the Rangers on Wednesday, allowing only two runs.

Chen scattered four hits and a walk while striking out two. Both runs came on solo home runs by Shin-Soo Choo and Ryan Rua in the third and fourth innings, respectively. Chen had also pitched well on Friday in his return to the Orioles' rotation. He now owns a 2.84 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and a 78/22 K/BB ratio over 95 innings. The lefty will take on the Twins on the road in his next outing.
Jul 1 - 9:27 PM

Buster Posey left Wednesday's game after taking a foul ball off his mask.

Posey stayed in after the incident, but he was removed in the fifth inning. He's being re-evaluated, likely for concussion symptoms, and the club may have a better prognosis after the game. Andrew Susac would be in line for the bulk of the playing time if Posey is forced to miss time.
