Justin Ruggiano went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Ruggiano got the Cubs on the board in the first inning with a sacrifice fly, and he later delivered an RBI single. The outfielder, who missed a significant portion of the first half with a hamstring strain, is now hitting .291/.357/.442 with 22 RBI and 23 runs scored in 58 games.

Steve Cishek worked around a lead-off single in the ninth inning to convert his 23rd save as the Marlins defeated the Braves on Tuesday.

Chris Johnson led off with a single and was pinch-run for by Jordan Schafer, but Schafer was caught stealing. Cishek then struck out Andrelton Simmons and Ryan Doumit to end the contest. The closer has had a few bumpy games over the last few weeks which significantly inflated his ERA, but he has otherwise had a great season. He carries a 3.40 ERA and a 51/14 K/BB ratio while converting 23 of 26 save opportunities.

Kyle Hendricks limited the Padres to five hits over seven shutout innings in a win on Tuesday.

In just his second big league start, Hendricks shut down an impotent Padres offense for his first career victory. The right-hander walked three while striking out five. Hendricks pitched well enough to earn a longer look, and his next start will likely come this weekend against the Cardinals.
Jul 22 - 10:44 PM

Jason Heyward knocked in three runs on two singles in four at-bats, but the Braves lost to the Marlins on Tuesday.

Heyward, who has had markedly better results at the plate over the past two weeks, tied the game up at 1-1 with a single in the bottom of the first inning. He attempted to help the Braves stage a comeback with a two-run single in the bottom of the eighth, but ultimately the Braves were a run short. Heyward's numbers are still well below where we would expect a player of his caliber to be, but his .258/.345/.381 has been a work in progress. He also has nine home runs, 42 RBI, and 11 stolen bases.
Jul 22 - 10:43 PM

Eric Stults allowed three runs while striking out seven over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

The Cubs got to Stults in three of his five innings of work, as he allowed six hits and three walks on the night. The left-hander dropped to 3-12 with a 5.00 ERA on the year.
Jul 22 - 10:42 PM

Donovan Solano reached base in all five plate appearances in Tuesday's win over the Braves, drawing a walk, hitting a double, and tallying three singles.

It's the first four-hit game of Solano's career. The Marlins could only bring him around to score once, however. Solano hasn't had much to write home about at the plate otherwise, as his slash line has improved to a still-paltry .261/.309/.322 with one home run and 12 RBI in 126 plate appearances.
Jul 22 - 10:40 PM

J.A. Happ improved to 8-5 after shutting the Red Sox out over six innings as the Blue Jays went on to win 7-3 on Tuesday.

The Red Sox didn't mount much of a threat against Happ, scratching out only two extra-base hits (both doubles). The lefty allowed seven hits overall, while walking one and striking out four. Happ has turned in a few gems this season, but has for the most part been mediocre, as evidenced by his 4.55 ERA, 1.53 ERA, and 68/34 K/BB ratio. He's scheduled to take on the Yankees on the road on Sunday next.
Jul 22 - 10:37 PM

Jake Peavy was hit hard by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, allowing five runs over six innings in a loss, which brought his record to a disappointing 1-9.

Peavy had been throwing the ball better over his last three starts, but the buck stopped with the Blue Jays, who belted two home runs and two doubles, accounting for half of the eight hits surrendered by the right-hander. Peavy also walked three and struck out seven. He now has a 4.72 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 100/46 K/BB ratio. He'll try to bounce back against the surging Rays on the road on Sunday.
