Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBI against the White Sox in Monday's victory.

Kipnis isn't exactly hot, but he has hit four of his five homers on the year in his last 18 games. It's a start anyway. Second base remains an intriguing upgrade possibility for the Indians in advance of the trade deadline.

Roberto Perez doubled twice and knocked in two runs Monday versus the White Sox.

That's enough to raise his average from .136 to .155. He entered the night with just four RBI in 81 at-bats this year. The Indians would love to see Perez play better, but Yan Gomes is going to remain their primary catcher.

Kenta Maeda will indeed start the first game of Tuesday's day-night doubleheader against the Cubs.

Rich Hill will take the mound in the nightcap for the Dodgers. Maeda warmed up several times during the rain and power outage delays at Wrigley Field on Monday, so it'll be interesting to see how that effects him heading into Tuesday's start.

Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 with a homer, a walk, and two runs scored Monday in the Cardinals' loss to the Phillies.

Starting his 1,757th career game for the Cardinals -- the new all-time record for most games caught for a single team -- Molina hit a solo homer in the top of the seventh, a single in the ninth, and a double in the 10th. The home run was his first since he suffered a traumatic hematoma in his groin when he was clipped by a foul tip on May 5. The veteran backstop is slashing .273/.311/.448 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 42 games this season.

Yoan Moncada went 2-for-3 with a walk as the White Sox's leadoff hitter Monday against the Indians.

That'll push his ERA back up over .300. Moncada was hitting .269/.358/.492 on this day a month ago, but his OPS is down from .830 to .703 since then. The White Sox will remain patient, and there's good reason for fantasy owners to hold tight as well.

Odubel Herrera hit a three-run homer in the Phillies' defeat of the Cardinals on Monday.

Herrera took Miles Mikolas deep after the first two batters reached in the bottom of the first inning. He added a single in the bottom of the fifth, finishing the night 2-for-5 with three RBI and one run scored. The 26-year-old outfielder fell into a slump toward the end of May, but he has picked it up again in a big way. Herrera is now slashing .293/.351/.464 with 10 home runs and 39 RBI in 68 games this season.

Nick Pivetta struck out 13 batters over 7 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals.

Philadelphia wound up winning the game in the bottom of the 10th, on walk-off two-run double by Aaron Altherr. Pivetta was sharp, yielding only four hits -- two of them solo homers -- while setting a new career-high in strikeouts. He's sporting a 4.08 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 94/22 K/BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings (15 starts) this season. Up next is a road start against the division-rival Nationals.

Miles Mikolas allowed four earned runs over five innings Monday in a no-decision against the Phillies.

It was one bad inning that sunk Mikolas again on Monday, and this time it was the bottom of the first. He gave up a leadoff single to Cesar Hernandez, issued a walk to Rhys Hoskins, and then served up a three-run homer to Odubel Herrera. Carlos Santana followed with a single and was eventually driven in by Andrew Knapp as the Phillies batted around in the opening frame. Mikolas settled in from there, but the damage was done. He'll try to avoid a similar hiccup in his next start on the road against the Brewers.
