Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-2 and drove home a run in Sunday's victory over the Yankees.

Schoop plated J.J. Hardy as part of a three-run uprising off Chase Whitley in the fourth inning. He has struggled at the dish through the first half of the season, slashing just .221/.259/.324 with six homers and 22 RBI.

Kevin Gausman defeated the Yankees in a rain-shortened contest on Sunday night, surrendering just one run on four hits over his five innings of work.

The five innings constituted the entirety of the ballgame as the storms wouldn't let up enough to allow for a completion. Gausman punched out two without walking a batter on the night. The only damage against him came on a leadoff homer from Brett Gardner. He now owns a 4-2 record, 3.29 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 26/13 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 innings with the Orioles on the season.

Brett Gardner blasted a leadoff homer in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Gardner launched the fourth pitch of the game from Kevin Gausman over the wall in right to get the Yankees on the board in a hurry. Sadly, that would be the extent of their offense on the rain-shortened night. He finishes the first half of the season hitting .279/.353/.424 with nine homers and 37 RBI.

Chase Whitley struggled in a losing effort against the Orioles on Sunday, surrendering three runs on five hits over his 3 2/3 innings of work.

Whitley struck out four and walked two on the evening. He cruised through the first three innings virtually unscathed, but ran into a buzzsaw in the fourth inning, highlighted by a two-run homer off the bat of Chris Davis. Whitley now sports a troublesome 5.10 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 40/12 K/BB ratio on the season, and could be on his way out of the Yankees rotation as soon as they find an alternative option.
Jul 14 - 12:14 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two hits while striking out 10 over six shutout innings in a 1-0 win over the Padres on Sunday.

Ryu bounced back from one of his worst starts of the year to turn in one of his best. The left-hander allowed just two singles without walking a batter, and his 10 strikeouts were a season high. Ryu moved to 10-5 with a 3.44 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 93/21 K/BB ratio over 104 2/3 innings, and he should continue to be one of the best starters in the National League in the second half.

Carl Crawford stole his 10th base of the season in a win over the Padres on Sunday.

The stolen base is noteworthy for the fact that it's his first since returning from an ankle injury that sidelined him since late May. Crawford is hitting .261/.295/.389 and appears to be the odd man out in the Dodgers outfield. Until that changes, he can't be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Jul 13 - 11:17 PM

Dee Gordon went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Padres.

It had been seven games since Gordon stole a base, so he was due. He's now got an NL-best 43 steals at the break. The second baseman is batting .292/.344/.398 with nine triples and 52 runs scored on the year, and with Alex Guerrero nowhere to be seen, he'll continue to wreak havoc atop the Dodgers lineup in the second half.
Jul 13 - 11:12 PM

Kenley Jansen worked out of a two-on, one-out jam in the ninth inning to earn the save against the Padres on Sunday.

A walk and a single put runners on the corners with one out, but Jansen recovered to strike out Jake Goebbert and Seth Smith to end the threat. Jansen goes into the break with a 3.49 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 62/12 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings. He's third in the National League with 27 saves, and he'll continue to be one of the game's best closers in the second half.
