Chad Billingsley turned in a solid performance for a win against the Dodgers on Tuesday, yielding two runs in six innings of work as the Phillies won 7-2.

Billingsley was working on a shutout until Yasmani Grandal squashed that dream with a two-run home run in the sixth inning. It was one of six hits the right-hander allowed while walking one and striking out three. While Billingsley should be avoided for fantasy purposes, the Phillies will keep running him out there as long as he has a pulse and a healthy arm. In five starts, he has a 6.67 ERA with a 1.70 WHIP and an 11/7 K/BB ratio in 27 innings. Billingsley will face the Giants in San Francisco next.

Jason Motte allowed a run on three hits but recovered to earn the save in the Cubs' 5-3 win over the Cardinals in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Motte gave up singles to Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos to start the ninth and, after recording an out, a Tony Cruz RBI single made things interesting. But Motte righted the ship to get Matt Carpenter and Jhonny Peralta out to end the threat, securing a sweep of the doubleheader for the Cubs. Motte now has five saves to go with a 2.97 ERA and 1.08 WHIP, and Tuesday's usage further confirms he's currently the closer du jour for Cubs manager Joe Maddon.
Jul 8 - 1:07 AM

Brett Anderson earned a loss on Tuesday, surrendering four runs (three earned) in five innings against the Phillies.

The Phillies scored a run in the first inning that was aided by two infield singles and a throwing error. Then they exploded for three runs in the third inning. All told, Anderson gave up six hits and a pair of walks while striking out five. Tuesday's start aside, Anderson has pitched well for the Dodgers while staying healthy. He is sporting a 3.12 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 74/28 K/BB ratio in 101 innings. The lefty will lead the Dodgers into the All-Star break with a start at home against the Brewers.
Jul 8 - 1:05 AM

Ben Revere knocked in two runs, walked, and stole a base in a 2-for-4 performance on Tuesday as the Phillies took down the Dodgers.

Revere reached on an infield single with one out in the first inning, then stole second base and eventually scored on another infield single. In the sixth, he padded the Phillies' lead to 6-0 with a two-run single to center field. Revere is on a seven-game hitting streak and boasts a productive .293/.333/.379 batting line with 20 stolen bases in 25 attempts.
Jul 8 - 1:02 AM

Jason Heyward went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Heyward had nearly identical lines in the twin bill, going 2-for-4 with a run scored in the first game. The Cardinals lost both. With his four-hit day, Heyward's line continued to climb, resting at .283/.331/.434 after Tuesday's action. The All-Star break is coming at a bad time for the 25-year-old, but he should remain productive in the season's second half.
Jul 8 - 1:01 AM

Yasmani Grandal singled, walked, and homered in five plate appearances, but the Dodgers suffered a loss to the Phillies on Tuesday.

Grandal's two-run homer came in the sixth inning off of Chad Billingsley, putting the Dodgers on the board for the first time. He's gone yard in back-to-back games, which he also did on June 29-30. Now with 14 home runs, he's one away from tying his career-high set last season. Grandal is also hitting a terrific .278/.392/.527 with 36 RBI.
Jul 8 - 1:00 AM

Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a solo home run as the Phillies beat the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Francoeur added insurance as his two-run double made it 3-0 in the third inning, and he'd later come around to score. He homered off of Juan Nicasio in the seventh to make it a 7-2 game. The veteran has lived up to expectations, providing some power every now and then but not much else. Francoeur owns a .259/.292/.431 triple-slash line with six home runs and 26 RBI.
Jul 8 - 12:58 AM

Addison Russell had an RBI single and a run scored in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

After sitting in the first game of the day, Russell found a way to contribute in the nightcap. His RBI single in the seventh inning tied the game, and he scored later in the inning. Despite the highlights, he finished 1-for-3 and has just three hits in his last 37 at-bats. The Cubs surely won't give up on their 21-year-old second baseman, but his .227/.291/.356 line is hard to stomach for the time being.
