Ben Zobrist supplied a two-run home run and walked in four plate appearances in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Zobrist went yard twice on Saturday, and added another in his fourth game as a Royal. His two-run blast in the seventh inning brought the Royals to within a run at 3-2. Zobrist is batting .272/.355/.480 with nine home runs and 39 RBI on the year.

Edinson Volquez limited the Blue Jays to two runs in six innings, but took the loss on Sunday.

It was a wild one, as Volquez threw inside to Josh Donaldson on multiple occasions, including hitting him in the first inning. The benches eventually cleared in the seventh inning with Volquez out of the game. The right-hander gave up four hits overall and walked three while striking out four. After years of mediocrity, Volquez has backed up his 2014 rebirth with another solid campaign, posting a 3.20 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 99/50 K/BB ratio in 132 innings. He'll try to get back in the win column with a weekend home start versus the White Sox.

David Ortiz went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Ortiz's third-inning RBI double off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi pushed the Red Sox advantage to 3-1, but the boys from Tampa would chip away and ultimately prevail with a 4-3 win, dropping the Sox to a disappointing 47-59. Ortiz is hitting .246/.337/.469 with 20 homers and 59 RBI. The numbers aren't as gaudy as we're accustomed to, but he remains a productive power bat.

R.A. Dickey assisted in Sunday's defeat of the Royals by tossing seven scoreless innings, earning his sixth win of the season.

Dickey limited the Royals to two hits and two walks while striking out six. Things escalated after he left as there was a benches-clearing incident between the two teams, spurred by teammate and reliever Aaron Sanchez. At any rate, Dickey lowered his ERA to 4.06 and owns a 1.24 WHIP with a 90/49 K/BB ratio in 144 innings. He's held the opposition to two or fewer runs in five consecutive starts, a trend he'll hope to continue over the weekend at Yankee Stadium.
Aug 2 - 4:54 PM

Jake Odorizzi supplied a quality start in a Sunday no-decision against the Red Sox, allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings.

Odorizzi struck out five and walked one on the day. The Red Sox took him to task for two runs in the first inning and another in the third to account for the scoring on his line. He's flashed signs of his pre-injury self since returning from the disabled list on July 10 after missing over a month with a strained oblique, but there's still room for improvement and owners probably have sunnier days to look forward to with the 25-year-old right-hander. The owner of a 2.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 87/27 K/BB ratio across 103 2/3 innings, Odorizzi will face the Mets at home in his next scheduled start.

Indians 1B prospect Bobby Bradley homered twice in Saturday's win for Low-A Lake County.

He matched a season-high with five RBI. The 19-year-old leads the Midwest League in home runs (18) and is second in slugging percentage (.483). Unfortunately, he's also second in strikeouts with 112. Bradley may have to change his all-or nothing approach as he advances through Cleveland's farm system.

Wade Miley put together a nice start in earning a no-decision against the Rays on Sunday, tossing 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball.

Miley's strong start comes on the heels of a seven-run debacle versus the White Sox. Against the Rays on Sunday, he bounced back nicely and scattered five hits while striking out four and walking one over 6 2/3 innings. Brandon Guyer burned him for a solo home run in the first inning and James Loney notched an RBI double in the fourth, but the 28-year-old southpaw otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. Miley's quietly allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts and holds a 4.55 ERA and 1.39 WHIP overall. He'll take to the road to face the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 2 - 4:51 PM

Joakim Soria got the final two outs of Sunday's 3-0 win over the Reds, earning his first save as a member of the Pirates.

Soria took the mound after regular closer Mark Melancon was ejected for hitting Tucker Barnhart with a pitch, putting runners on first and second with one out. Soria got Eugenio Suarez to fly out, and Ivan De Jesus, Jr. to ground out to end the game. Soria's save situations should be very few and far between behind Melancon in the final two months.
