Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Tigers.

His two-run shot in the third inning knocked starter Anibal Sanchez out of the game. The future Hall of Famer spent the first two months of the season on the disabled list with a calf injury but hasn't let that affect his performance since returning. He has a marvelous .313/.381/.549 triple slash with 13 homers and 52 RBI in 65 games.

Nomar Mazara went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Tigers on Wednesday.

He belted a two-run shot off starter Anibal Sanchez in the second inning, then plated another run with a single in the sixth. The promising second-year outfielder is still one of the youngest players in the major leagues but you wouldn't know it from his performance. He has a .258 batting average with 15 home runs and 77 RBI in 108 games.

Cole Hamels was credited with a win over the Tigers even though he yielded four runs in six frames on Wednesday.

He struggled with his control, walking five batters and allowing a pair of home runs in the contest. Lucky for him his teammates brought their premium lumber to the ballpark to back him up with 12 runs. He served up a home run to the first batter he faced (Ian Kinsler) and was taken deep by center fielder Mikie Mahtook in the third frame. Hamels improved to 8-1 with a 3.48 ERA in 15 starts. His 62/31 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 98 1/3 innings is far worse than his stellar career norm and sounds a note of concern for the rest of the season.
Aug 17 - 1:20 AM

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-2 and worked a pair of walks in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

He singled and doubled in the contest before being replaced by a pinch-hitter when the game was out of reach. Miggy has not been fully healthy at any point this season and it shows in his diminished stats. The perennial MVP candidate has no chance at any awards this year. He has a .255/.343/.408 slash line with 13 home runs and 53 RBI in 432 plate appearances.
Aug 17 - 1:13 AM

Ian Kinsler went 2-for-3, walked twice, scored twice, stole a base and hit a solo home run in a loss to the Rangers.

He started the game with a bang by taking Cole Hamels deep leading off the first inning. He walked and rode home on a Mikie Mahtook dinger in the third. The aging second baseman is no longer a fantasy stud but can still fill up a box score on occasion. He owns a .248 batting average with 12 homers, 70 runs, 35 RBI and nine steals in 101 games.
Aug 17 - 1:09 AM

Anthony Rizzo belted a grand slam against the Reds and finished the day 2-for-4 with two runs and four RBI in a 7-6 win on Wednesday.

His bases-loaded blast in the first inning gave the Cubs a big lead before starter Homer Bailey had recorded a single out in the contest. He doubled and scored in the third frame. The veteran first baseman is slashing .265/.385/.513 with 28 home runs, 80 RBI, 69 runs and seven steals. This is likely to be his fourth consecutive season with 30-plus dingers.
Aug 17 - 12:57 AM

John Lackey held the Reds to one run in six innings but had to settle for a no-decision on Wednesday.

He registered six strikeouts while issuing three walks and yielding just four knocks. He gave up a run on a sacrifice fly in the first inning and that was it. Unfortunately the Cubs' bullpen imploded after he left, costing him a well-deserved victory. His record holds at 10-9 with a 4.67 ERA in 23 starts.
Aug 17 - 12:49 AM

Adam Duvall delivered a pinch-hit, game-tying, two-run homer against the Cubs on Wednesday.

His blast off reliever Carl Edwards Jr. tied the game in the eighth inning, although the Cubs subsequently walked it off on a wild pitch in the ninth. Duvall has been in a slump of late but has been very productive overall on the season. He has a .262 batting average with 28 home runs and 83 RBI with six weeks to go.
