Brian Dozier went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

Dozier also doubled in the game, breaking an 0-for-15 slump. The most disappointing thing about his July slide is his lack of walks -- after walking 52 times through the season's first three months, Dozier has a 1/21 BB/K ratio in July. The drought has him at .233/.328/.422, and owners who sold high on him are patting themselves on the back right now.

James Shields walked four while allowing two runs -- one earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Twins on Tuesday.

Shields also yielded six hits, so he was somewhat fortunate to escape without more damage. Even with some of the blemishes, the start was Shields' fourth quality start in his last five outings. He's 1-2 in that stretch, though, and 9-6 overall. The right-hander will carry a 3.50 ERA into Sunday's start at the Athletics.

Jered Weaver was fortunate to go home with a no-decision, as he allowed six runs over five innings, but the Angels fell in 12 innings to the Orioles by a 7-6 margin.

Weaver had been pitching much better lately, allowing exactly two runs in each of his last three outings, but the Orioles were squaring him up well on Tuesday. The right-hander surrendered two home runs: a solo shot to Adam Jones, and a three-run shot to Nick Markakis. Overall, he yielded seven hits and walked four while striking out four. Now with a 3.62 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a 114/42 K/BB ratio, Weaver will look to get back on track when he takes on the Rays in a road start on Sunday.

Danny Santana went 2-for-5 with a double and scored both Twins runs in a win over the Royals on Tuesday.

All Santana does is find ways to contribute offensively, and he did it again Tuesday. The 23-year-old reached on a bunt single in the third inning and scored the game's first run, and he doubled and scored in the fifth. Santana has 26 runs scored in 47 games this season, and he's scored seven in his last seven games as he rounds into form following a DL stint for a knee bone bruise. He's batting a healthy .320/.352/.465 on the year.

Marlins recalled INF Ed Lucas from Triple-A New Orleans.

Lucas has hit only .239/.276/.277 across 51 games this season for the Marlins. He'll work in a utility role.
Jul 29 - 11:26 PM

Chris Tillman got a no-decision after allowing five runs (three earned) over five innings in Tuesday's 12-inning walk-off win against the Angels.

Tillman and opposing starter Jered Weaver were nearly equally ineffective, a strange mix that helped the game go extras. The Orioles' right-hander allowed six hits -- including a home run to Josh Hamilton -- while walking one and striking out six. Tillman now has a 3.97 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and an 89/52 K/BB ratio, which he'll try to improve when he takes on the Mariners in a homestand finale on Sunday.
Jul 29 - 11:26 PM

Adam Jones hit a solo home run, his only hit in five at-bats, in Tuesday's 12-inning win over the Angels.

Jones tied the game up at 1-1 when he took Jered Weaver deep in the first inning. It's the 20th blast of the season for the 28-year-old outfielder, who now has four consecutive seasons with at least 20 homers. Jones is slashing .292/.319/.491 with 65 RBI and six stolen bases.
Jul 29 - 11:23 PM

Nick Markakis went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run, but the Orioles needed 12 innings to overcome the Angels in a win on Tuesday.

Markakis took Jered Weaver out to right field in the fourth inning, giving the Orioles a 6-4 lead at the time. It was a rare bit of power from Markakis, who now has a .285/.346/.393 line with eight home runs and 37 RBI on the season.
