Manny Machado sent the Orioles home winners, belting a walk-off solo home run to left field in the 12th inning on Tuesday against the Angels.

Machado went into the at-bat 1-for-5 with an RBI double, and wasted no time ending the ballgame as he was the first batter reliever Cory Rasmus faced in the 12th. The third baseman has a respectable .268/.314/.430 slash line with 11 home runs and 27 RBI this season.

Mike Zunino doubled and hit a solo home run in three at-bats as the Mariners topped the Indians by a 5-2 margin on Tuesday.

The catcher has now homered in back-to-back ballgames, giving him 16 on the season. Zunino has been lackluster in the average and on-base departments, but he has provided power out of the middle of the Mariners' lineup. He owns a .214/.265/.435 slash line with 38 RBI.

Henderson Alvarez threw seven scoreless innings in the Marlins' 3-0 shutout of the Nationals on Tuesday.

Alvarez had one sticky situation in the second inning that required a bit of magic -- and some luck -- but he otherwise quieted the Nationals over his seven innings. The right-hander allowed just three hits and walked four on the evening. The All-Star moved to 8-5 with a 2.48 ERA through 22 starts this season, and he'll square off with the Reds on Sunday.

Fernando Rodney allowed a single, but was able to preserve the Mariners' three-run lead in the ninth inning in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

With back-to-back strikeouts to end the ninth inning, Rodney pushed his AL-best save total to 29. Only a handful of closers have been better than the veteran Rodney, who has blown only three saves and has a 2.11 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 48/17 K/BB ratio.

Dustin Ackley went 3-for-5 with a two-run double as the Mariners defeated the Indians on Tuesday.

Ackley drove in the middle two runs in a four-run fourth inning, doubling to right field off of Trevor Bauer. The 26-year-old has been red-hot since returning from the break, as he holds a .444 average (20-for-45) in 11 games since. The Mariners hope it's a sign of things to come, as Ackley's numbers overall aren't too great -- he has a .256/.303/.372 slash line with four home runs and 34 RBI.
Jul 29 - 11:03 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

Stanton broke a scoreless tie with his 25th double of the season in the sixth inning. He added an RBI single in the eighth. The two runs batted in added to his NL-leading total of 71 RBI. It's shaping up to be a career year for the outfielder, who's hitting .293/.393/.535 overall.
Jul 29 - 11:02 PM

Trevor Bauer was hit hard by the Mariners on Tuesday, surrendering five runs over 4 1/3 innings en route to a loss.

Bauer had been on a streak of four consecutive quality starts, but the Mariners were able to rip five extra-base hits -- including a Mike Zunino home run -- off of the right-hander. He allowed eight hits overall along with a walk and three strikeouts. Bauer will take a 4.25 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP into Sunday's home start against the Rangers.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Phillies have had no offers and "no meaningful dialogue" with teams inquiring on Cole Hamels.

Rosenthal adds that the Phils have also not made "any specific requests" in talks and a potential Hamels trade is the "least likely" to go down of all the ones Philly is contemplating. While Hamels may technically be on the trade block, Philadelphia understandably wants a ton in return and it's looking like teams probably won't be willing to give up what it would take. Hamels boasts a 2.55 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 133/39 K/BB ratio this season.
