Gary Sanchez went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Rays.

Sanchez got hold of a Chris Archer offering in the third inning for his 15th homer of the year, and he also provided some small heroics with an RBI single in the ninth inning that tied the game and paved the way for Brett Gardner's walk-off homer in the 11th. The 24-year-old needed a good night after what's been a rough month -- Sanchez was hitting just .213/.259/.320 with one homer in July coming into the night. Perhaps Thursday's game can be a jumping off point for Sanchez.

Chris Archer punched out 10 while allowing three runs over six innings but settled for a no-decision Thursday against the Yankees.

Archer did what he could, turning in his sixth consecutive quality start, but his bullpen let him down, denying him his eighth win. In fact, in those six straight quality starts, the 28-year-old is just 1-2. Archer has deserved better than his 7-6 record overall, posting a 3.80 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 177/46 K/BB ratio over 22 starts; he ranks second in the American League in both innings pitched and strikeouts. Life doesn't get any easier for Archer and the Rays next week, when the right-hander squares off with the AL West-leading Astros on Tuesday.

Dusty Coleman went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Coleman uncoiled for a three-run home run -- the first big league home run of his career -- in the fourth inning to give the Padres a 7-1 lead. The Mets would later crawl to within 7-5, but were unable to draw closer than that. This was just Coleman's third game with the Padres. He owned a .209/.280/.438 triple-slash with 14 homers and 11 steals at Triple-A prior to being called up at the beginning of the week.
Jul 28 - 12:24 AM

Manuel Margot went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a two-run double in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Margot offered a rude enough welcome to Chris Flexen in this one with a leadoff solo homer to open the game in what was Flexen's first start of his major league career. The outfielder would haunt Flexen once more with a two-run double in the second inning. He has been scalding the ball at the plate of late, having homered in back-to-back games and picked up at least two hits in each of his last four contests. Overall, Margot boasts a .279/.321/.420 triple-slash with seven homers and 22 RBI over the course of 69 games played. He has also stolen 10 bases.

Jay Bruce - OF - Mets

Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

The Mets entered action in the top of the seventh trailing 7-1, but they were able to make it a game with four runs in the frame to draw to within 7-5. Bruce was key to that big frame, connecting for a two-run homer. He is one potential trade candidate of several on the roster as we near Monday's deadline. For the season as a whole, the 30-year-old outfielder is hitting .262/.325/.521 with 26 homers and 70 RBI across 374 at-bats.
Jul 28 - 12:21 AM

Yoenis Cespedes went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

Cespedes launched a deep RBI double off Luis Perdomo in the seventh inning. The two-bagger was his 12th of the season. He has dealt with his fair share of nagging injuries during the campaign -- most recently a quad ailment -- but when healthy, is slashing a sturdy .282/.333/.510 with 10 homers and 27 RBI over the course of 55 games played.
Jul 28 - 12:19 AM

Luis Perdomo surrendered four runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Perdomo allowed just one run over his first six innings of work, but got into trouble after he trotted out to start the seventh. In that frame, he surrendered three hits, including an RBI double by Yoenis Cespedes. The final two runs on his line scored after he existed stage left with two outs. Perdomo will carry a 4.76 ERA and 1.55 WHIP into a home start against the Twins next time he toes the rubber.
Jul 28 - 12:18 AM

Making his major league debut in Thursday's loss to the Padres, Chris Flexen allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits over three innings.

Perhaps battling a few butterflies in his debut in the bigs, Flexen walked four over his three innings of work. Manuel Margot victimized him twice, first swatting a solo homer in the first inning and then coming through again with a two-run double in the second. Prior to his call-up, the 23-year-old Flexen had been pitching to a crisp 1.76 ERA with a 63/10 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 frames between High- and Double-A. It remains to be seen if he will receive another opportunity next time through the rotation.
