Buster Posey finished 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two runs scored against the Marlins on Tuesday.
Posey hit a solo home run in the third inning before doubling and scoring on a wild pitch in the sixth. The catcher is 11-for-24 (.458) with four doubles, two home runs, 13 RBI and eight runs scored during a six-game hitting streak. The hot stretch has his overall line up to .303/.378/.487.
Justin Bour hit his seventh home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Giants.
The solo homer was his only hit in four at-bats on the night. He's now got seven homers in 50 games with the Marlins. The 27-year-old is hitting .254/.331/.454 overall.
A.J. Ramos pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Giants.
Ramos needed just nine pitches to dispatch of the Giants in the ninth. The save was his 11th of the season. Ramos owns a 1.26 ERA and 0.76 WHIP through 35 2/3 innings this season.
Danny Espinosa doubled twice with an RBI and two runs scored in a 3-for-5 effort as the Nationals topped the Braves 6-1 on Tuesday.
Espinosa sparked a four-run first inning with an RBI double. He later scored on a Wilson Ramos single. He singled to lead off the third inning and eventually scored following A.J. Pierzynski's throwing error. Espinosa had been slumping, batting .107 (3-for-28) since June 20. He's batting .259/.336/.438 overall with eight home runs, 23 RBI, and 37 runs scored.
Ryan Vogelsong allowed four runs over six innings in a loss to the Marlins on Tuesday.
Vogelsong surrendered two home runs among his seven hits allowed, and he also walked three in the game. The right-hander struck out four in the start. Vogelsong fell to an even 6-6 with a 4.19 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 14 starts. He'll next take on the Nationals on Sunday.
Juan Uribe homered in the ninth inning to prevent the Braves from suffering a shutout loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.
The Braves entered the ninth inning down 6-0, but Uribe at least saved his team the indignity of a shutout, launching a solo home run to left field off of former Brave David Carpenter. Uribe has homered twice in his last three games, but has mostly struggled this season. Including his time with the Dodgers, he has five home runs, 16 RBI, and a .279/.333/.397 triple-slash line.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) could still be activated on Friday even after sitting out Tuesday's rehab game because of fatigue.
"I guess the running we've done the last couple of days has kind of worn him out," Girardi said Tuesday. "And it's not only in the one leg, it's in both legs. So we'll give him a day off today and hopefully he's back in there tomorrow." Ellsbury went 0-for-3 in his first rehab contest on Monday but needs to play at least a game or two in center field before being activated.
Shelby Miller was ineffective in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday, serving up five runs (four earned) over five innings.
Miller did strike out a season-high 10 batters, but allowed eight hits and three walks. The Nats scored four of their five runs in the first inning, and tacked on that fifth run in the third inning thanks to an A.J. Pierzynski throwing error. Miller has only twice in 16 starts allowed four-plus runs, but both have occurred in June. He still owns an outstanding 2.20 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP and an 80/32 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. Miller will face a low-scoring Phillies lineup at home his next turn through the rotation.
