Chris Iannetta went 2-for-4 with a double and a grand slam on Thursday in a 12-2 stomping of the Tigers.

With the game already out of hand, Detroit stretched Tom Gorzelanny beyond his LOOGY capabilities and his ERA will suffer for it for some time. Not that Iannetta much cares. His slash line was a hideous .123/.217/.137 as recently as 11 days ago, but Carlos Perez's emergence has jolted him awake. Iannetta has 12 RBI in his past 10 games and three homers and three doubles across his last eight.

C.J. Wilson painted six innings of one-run ball in the Angels' 12-2 blowout of the Tigers on Thursday.

Wilson was hard to touch -- he surrendered only two hits and struck out seven -- but his control wavered in walking five. Fortunately, none of that mattered as he danced from danger and his teammates turned Buck Farmer and Tom Gorzelanny into human Piñatas. At 3-3 with a 3.18 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, Wilson is pitching slightly better than his career norms.

Buck Farmer was detonated by the Angels on Thursday, yielding seven runs on nine hits over five innings of a 12-2 loss.

He gave up twice as many homers (two) as he struck out. Farmer was making his season debut in a spot start in place of the injured Kyle Lobstein (shoulder). We are about to see how much faith the Tigers currently have in the 24-year-old, because a quick hook back to the minors is certainly in play here. In four career MLB appearances (two starts), Farmer has a 11.57 ERA.

Nori Aoki finished 2-for-4 with a run scored on Thursday versus the Braves.

Aoki has five straight multi-hit games and a six-game hit streak overall. With the way he's hitting, the Giants won't be able to pull him out of the lineup or the leadoff slot. Aoki is slashing .326/.398/.418 with 11 steals, the latter good for fourth in the NL.

Brandon Belt's sixth home run of the season helped the Giants beat the Braves 7-0 on Thursday.

He finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored, adding a double. The seventh inning round-tripper, on a 1-2 count against Shelby Miller, gave the Giants a 1-0 lead. San Francisco broke open the game in the next frame. Belt is now slashing .305/.375/.536.

Chris Heston fired 7 1/3 shutout innings, striking out six, in Thursday's 7-0 triumph over the Braves.

He scattered four hits and walked one. After giving up five runs or more in three of his last four starts (and four of his past six), tonight's performance was an encouraging sign indeed. Still, it's difficult to get overly excited here: In 10 starts, Heston has been bombed four times and allowed one earned run or fewer in the other six. It adds up to a decent 3.82 ERA, but NL-only owners are playing roulette when they roll him out.

Shelby Miller was slapped with the tough-luck loss on Thursday, yielding just one run over seven innings in a 7-0 loss to the Giants.

Miller was scarcely in danger. Oh, except for that seventh inning Brandon Belt homer. Chris Heston was dealing across the bump, ensuring that Miller's record would drop to 5-2. The youngster, who struck out one and walked none tonight, has proven to be everything the Braves could have asked for and more, posting a 1.48 ERA and 0.88 WHIP across 10 starts.

Tyler Clippard gave up one run but evaded further damage to earn his fifth save of the season in Thursday's 5-4 victory against the Yankees.

Clippard had himself to blame for the run after inexplicably walking Garrett Jones -- who has been hitting like your grandfather has been cooking -- with two outs. Brett Gardner next doubled Jones in, doing right by the karma gods. Clippard has been effective and owns a nice 2.57 ERA, but his days as closer are numbered with Sean Doolittle healthy and shaking off the rust in middle relief.
