Yohan Pino surrendered just one run over five innings to earn his first MLB victory over the Mariners on Thursday.

He allowed seven hits and two walks while notching four strikeouts. Pino is expected to be demoted to make room for Friday starter Kris Johnson, but he might have done enough in his past two starts to book a reservation in the rotation to begin the second half. Pino put up an ugly 6.32 ERA in his first three outings, but yielded just two runs in 11 innings over his last two. Pino is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.31 WHIP overall.

Hanley Ramirez singled twice over three at-bats in Thursday's win over the Padres.

He also swiped a base and scored a run. Han-Ram went just 1-for-11 in the opening series against Arizona in Australia back in March, but he's been rock solid since then, posting a .900 OPS in April, .806 OPS in May, .858 OPS in June and .830 OPS this month coming into play today. Now batting .275, Ramirez is on pace for 19 homers, 83 RBI, 78 runs and 21 steals.

Michael Saunders left Thursday's game against the Twins in the eighth inning with a possible oblique injury.

Saunders checked a swing against reliever Casey Fien and immediately grabbed his back ribcage, a tweak that may have occurred as he attempted to halt his momentum. The outfielder just returned from the disabled list on June 27 (shoulder). Seattle has not yet addressed his prognosis. A disabled list stint is possible.

Chase Headley hit a solo homer off Clayton Kershaw in a 2-1 loss to the Dodgers on Thursday.

He finished 1-for-4. This was Headley's first homer since June 14. He's taken plenty of heat for a subpar season, but the veteran third baseman has shown signs recently of breaking out of his funk. He entered this game batting .371 with an .829 OPS this month.

Clayton Kershaw rolled into the All-Star break with another dominant performance in Thursday's complete game victory over the Padres, racking up 11 strikeouts and allowing only one run.

Kershaw's only mistake came in the form of Chase Headley's sixth inning solo homer, one of three San Diego hits; they also drew one walk. But it wasn't all good news: Kershaw's scoreless innings streak ended at 41 2/3 when Headley's drive left the yard, the first run the left-hander had allowed since June 13 against Arizona. It was the longest single-season scoreless streak since Brandon Webb hurled 42 straight in 2007. Orel Hershiser has the most in the major league divisional era with 59. Kershaw is on his way to another Cy Young award with a 10-2 record and 1.83 ERA in 14 outings.
Jul 11 - 12:56 AM

Odrisamer Despaigne tossed seven innings of two-run ball in a loss Thursday versus the Dodgers.

Despaigne struck out a career-high seven and walked zero but was stuck with his first big league loss anyway. The Cuban right-hander isn't overpowering, but he's begun his major league career with four consecutive quality starts. Despaigne, who should be owned in most formats as long as he's pitching well, is 2-1 with a 1.35 ERA and 0.98 WHIP.
Jul 11 - 12:47 AM

Drew Smyly improved to 5-8, allowing four runs over 6 2/3 innings as the Tigers went on to defeat the Royals 16-4 on Thursday.

Smyly has been mediocre over his last three starts, but he was backed by an offensive outburst on Thursday. The lefty allowed eight hits -- including home runs to Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler -- while walking one and striking out two. Smyly goes into the All-Star break with a 4.00 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 70/28 K/BB ratio.
Jul 11 - 12:07 AM

Jeremy Guthrie fell to 5-8 after allowing eight runs in four innings as the Royals were easily defeated by the Tigers on Thursday.

The Tigers' offense is firing on all cylinders, having scored 14 runs on Tuesday and 16 on Thursday. Guthrie was no match for it, allowing eight hits, walking three, and striking out only two in the effort. The right-hander heads into the All-Star break carrying a 4.56 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 75/32 K/BB ratio.
