Chris Archer limited the White Sox to two runs over seven innings in Tuesday's win.
Archer yielded six hits and a walk, striking out seven in the start. In an unlikely turn of events, Archer earned his first win since June 23 on Tuesday despite being opposed by Chris Sale. Archer is now 10-8 with a 2.54 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 180/34 K/BB ratio over 148 2/3 innings. His next start will come Tuesday against the Braves.
Preston Tucker left Tuesday's game versus the Rangers after being hit on his right triceps by a pitch.
He was understandably sore but just has a bruise and should be fine. Tucker singled in one of his two at-bats before exiting.
Yankees optioned RHP Nicholas Rumbelow to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Rumbelow has fared well with the big club this season, allowing just one run over six appearances. The Yanks needed to clear a roster spot for Luis Severino, who will be promoted to make his major league debut Wednesday.
Matt Duffy went 4-for-5 with an RBI double, a run scored and a stolen base as the Giants topped the Braves 8-3 on Tuesday.
Duffy had three singles to go with his RBI double, and the steal was his fifth of the year. The infielder hasn't had back-to-back hitless games since July 2-3, and Tuesday's outburst has his line up to .309/.346/.465. He'll have some stiff competition, but Duffy is square in the middle of the Rookie of the Year race in the National League.
Daniel Castro went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.
Castro accounted for two of the Braves' three runs on the evening. The multi-hit game was the infielder's first since being recalled on July 25. Castro is hitting .316 through his first eight games in the majors.
Hunter Pence homered and had four RBI in a win over the Braves on Tuesday.
Pence had an RBI groundout in the sixth inning before launching a three-run homer in the eighth to give the Giants the lead. The home run was Pence's seventh of the season. The outfielder is hitting .288/.341/.506 with 35 RBI and 24 runs scored in 40 games this year.
Gregor Blanco went 2-for-3 with four runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Braves.
Blanco walked twice along with his two hits, scoring all four times he reached base on the evening. Blanco is getting more playing time in recent days with Angel Pagan ailing. The 31-year-old is hitting .295/.376/.420 overall.
Ken Giles got the final four outs of Tuesday's 6-2 victory over the Dodgers to earn his third save of the season.
Giles cleaned up Jeanmar Gomez's mess in the eighth inning, striking out Jimmy Rollins for the third out. In the ninth, he worked around a leadoff walk of Howie Kendrick by striking out Adrian Gonzalez, getting Yasmani Grandal to line out, and striking out Yasiel Puig. Giles has earned the save in all three chances presented since Jonathan Papelbon was traded to the Nationals. He has a 1.72 ERA with a 59/21 K/BB ratio in 47 innings on the year.
