Collin McHugh gave up four runs in 4 2/3 innings while making his season debut against the Orioles on Saturday.

He made it through the first four innings allowing one hit and no runs but then fell apart in the fifth. He allowed a pair of two-run homers in that frame, one to Adam Jones and the other to Jonathan Schoop. McHugh struck out four and walked two in the outing. He had missed the entire season before today with an elbow injury. The Astros' starting rotation will be rather crowded when ace Dallas Keuchel returns to action in the coming days. McHugh will face the Tigers on the road on Friday.

Salvador Perez hit a two-run home run in a win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Perez took Sox reliever David Holmberg deep in the sixth inning, the first of three homers -- also the front end of back-to-back jacks from Perez and Mike Moustakas -- in the inning. The homer was the 19th of the year for Perez, who has a very modest six-game hitting streak going. On the year, the 27-year-old is batting a healthy .284/.314/.523 in 88 games.

Brandon Moss hit his 12th home run of the year in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

White Sox reliever David Holmberg was the whipping boy in this one, serving up back-to-back shots to Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas before giving up Moss's dong two batters later. The homer was the second in the past four games for the 33-year-old, who's 7-for-16 in that four-game span. Moss also stealthily stole his second base of the year in Saturday's game. He's a streaky hitter, but we'll need to see a lot more games like that before we even consider Moss and his .208 batting average for fantasy purposes.

Brad Brach was used in a non-save situation on Saturday and allowed two runs -- one earned -- on three hits.

He was brought in to pitch the ninth inning with his team trailing by two runs. He surrendered three singles and a sacrifice fly. One of the runs was unearned thanks to an error by third baseman Manny Machado. Brach has served as the team's closer for most of the season while Zach Britton recovered from an injury. Brach has 16 saves, a 2.76 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 43 1/3 innings.

Adam Jones belted a two-run dinger during a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

His blast off starter Collin McHugh was his only hit of the night in four chances. His team could manage only four base hits all night. Jones has a .266 batting average with 18 home runs and 49 RBI on the season.
Jul 23 - 12:31 AM

Mike Pelfrey held the Royals to one run on two hits, albeit with six walks, over five innings in a no-decision Saturday.

Pelfrey had trouble throwing strikes but it worked for him, as he kept the Royals offense off-balance for most of the night. Unfortunately for Big Pelf, he pitches for the White Sox, so he can't have nice things like wins. The no-decision leaves his record at 3-7 with a 4.46 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 18 appearances, including 16 starts, to date. The 33-year-old will seek the elusive win Thursday against the Cubs.
Jul 23 - 12:31 AM

Chris Tillman took a no-decision after allowing three runs in 5 1/3 innings against the Astros on Saturday.

All three runs scored via the longball -- a solo shot by Alex Bregman and a two-run dinger by Yuli Gurriel. Tillman struck out five and didn't issue a free pass in the contest. It's been an ugly season for Tillman, who has been one of the league's worst starting pitchers this year. He has a 1-5 record and a pitiful 7.01 ERA. His 1.94 WHIP would be the worst in the majors if he had enough innings to qualify.
Jul 23 - 12:28 AM

Jason Vargas kept the White Sox to two runs over five innings but didn't factor in the decision Saturday.

Vargas held the Sox offense basically in check save for Melky Cabrera, who got to the southpaw for a solo homer in the third inning before doubling in another run in the fifth. Vargas was very good against the non-Cabrera White Sox, though, scattering seven hits and a walk overall. It was a good rebound from a pair of poor performances his last two times out. With Saturday's showing, the 34-year-old remains 12-4 with a 3.08 ERA and 1.24 WHIP heading into Friday's clash with the Red Sox.
