Blake Snell yielded two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Sunday in the Rays' loss to the A's.

Snell gave up both of those runs in the bottom of the first inning, allowing two singles and two doubles. He settled in from there, but the Tampa Bay offense couldn't muster any run support until the eighth inning and the rookie left-hander wound up with a no-decision. Snell whiffed four batters Sunday and now holds a 3.05 ERA with 40 strikeouts over his first 44 1/3 major league innings. Next up is a start at home against the Yankees.

Hector Rondon notched his 18th save of the season Sunday in the Cubs' 5-4 defeat of the Brewers.

Rondon served up a two-out homer to Kirk Nieuwenhuis but retired the other three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning at Miller Park -- two via strikeout. The right-hander holds a 1.95 ERA, 0.73 WHIP, and 48/5 K/BB ratio in 37 innings this season for the Cubs, but his days as a closer could be numbered with Theo Epstein and Co. searching the trade block for another elite late-inning arm.

Nationals optioned RHP Lucas Giolito to Triple-A Syracuse.

Giolito allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 3 1/3 innings Sunday in the Nationals' loss to the Padres. It was his third career start at the major league level. Joe Ross (shoulder) could be activated to fill the rotation vacancy later this week. Or maybe the Nats will try Reynaldo Lopez again.
Jul 24 - 6:41 PM

Nationals optioned OF Michael Taylor to Triple-A Syracuse.

Taylor has batted just .222/.274/.372 in 66 games this season at the major league level, including an 0-for-4 from Sunday. He should be back up in September, or maybe sooner if the Nationals get desperate. This move leaves them with only one true backup outfielder.
Jul 24 - 6:39 PM

Junior Guerra yielded just one unearned run over 6 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Cubs.

That run came on a Ben Zobrist single in the top of the sixth inning, after Anthony Rizzo had reached base on a fielding error by Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett. Chicago's offense then went off for five runs against the Milwaukee bullpen in the top of the seventh, ultimately winning the game 6-5. Guerra will carry a shiny 2.85 ERA into his next start at home against the Pirates.
Jul 24 - 6:35 PM

Jon Lester surrendered four earned runs over four innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Brewers.

Lester struggled from the jump in this one, yielding two runs in the bottom of the first inning on two walks, three singles, and three stolen bases. Chicago's offense rallied to grab a 6-5 victory, with Joe Nathan earning his first major league win since September 2014. Lester will try to bounce back next time out against the Mariners.
Jul 24 - 6:31 PM

Nolan Reimold launched a pinch-hit, walk-off two-run homer to end Sunday's 5-3 win over the Indians.

Pinch-hitting for Julio Bourbon, Reimold sent the fans home happy when he connected for a walk-off blast against Tribe reliever Cody Allen with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Those heroics are fine and dandy, but for the season, the veteran outfielder has collected just five homers and 13 RBI over 142 at-bats. He does not hold any fantasy value of note.
Jul 24 - 6:29 PM

Jameson Taillon allowed four earned runs over six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Phillies.

At least he didn't get hit in the head by a comebacker, which is what happened in his last start Tuesday versus the Brewers. Taillon struck out seven batters on Sunday and issued no walks, but the Phillies got to the rookie right-hander for eight hits, including two home runs. Pittsburgh did rally to take the game 5-4, with the "win" going to Neftali Feliz.
