Andrelton Simmons hit his 13th home run of the year in the Angels' 5-4 win over the Orioles on Sunday.

It was a two-run shot in the top of the sixth inning. Simmons also made a couple of tremendous defensive plays at shortstop in the afternoon victory at Camden Yards. The 27-year-old is slashing .292/.345/.451 through 122 games this season and will probably get a number of down-ballot MVP votes if he can finish strong.

Bud Norris netted his 19th save of the season on Sunday afternoon against the Orioles.

The closer carousel continues in Anaheim. Norris, Kenyan Middleton, Yusmeiro Petit, and Cam Bedrosian have all earned saves this month, and Blake Parker is also believed to be in the ninth-inning mix. Norris, who had been struggling mightily, has now made two straight scoreless appearances.

Parker Bridwell allowed four runs -- two earned -- over five-plus innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Orioles.

Anaheim eventually won the game 5-4, with the decision going to reliever Cam Bedrosian. Bridwell was pitching well until the bottom of the sixth inning, when the Orioles managed three runs on three singles and a ground-rule double. The 26-year-old right-hander will carry a sharp 7-1 record, 2.92 ERA, and 1.18 WHIP into his next start at home against the AL West-leading Astros.

Chris Tillman yielded four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Angels.

Tillman issued six walks and gave up four hits, including two home runs, in the eventual 5-4 loss to the visiting Halos. Tillman is 1-7 with a hideous 7.75 ERA and 1.99 WHIP in 74 1/3 innings this season.
Aug 20 - 5:15 PM

Tyler Flowers hit a grand slam in the fifth inning of Sunday's 8-1 rout of the Reds.

It was the only hit of the game for Flowers, but it was obviously a big one. The 31-year-old catcher boasts a career-best .292/.384/.468 batting line with 11 home runs and 43 RBI in 83 total games this season. He holds a team-friendly $4 million club option for 2018 and may be a candidate for a contract extension this winter.
Aug 20 - 5:00 PM

Freddie Freeman finished 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in the Braves' victory over the Reds on Sunday.

Freeman is working on a nine-game hitting streak and has registered five doubles and one home run in that span. The star first baseman is slashing .325/.420/.631 in 78 total games this season.
Aug 20 - 4:56 PM

Sean Newcomb worked five shutout innings Sunday in the Braves' victory over the Reds.

Newcomb walked five batters, surrendered five hits, and tallied just two strikeouts, but the Reds couldn't manage any high-leverage offense in the 8-1 rout at SunTrust Park. Newcomb is now 2-7 with a 4.13 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, and 71/42 K/BB ratio over his first 69 2/3 major league frames. He'll get the Rockies at home in his next start.
Aug 20 - 4:53 PM

Luis Castillo allowed two runs over four innings Sunday in a loss to the Braves.

Castillo struck out eight batters, but his pitch count grew in a hurry and he was lifted before the top of the fifth. The young right-hander has an impressive 3.45 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 74/30 K/BB ratio through his first 70 1/3 major league innings, though he'll bring a 2-6 record into his next start at home against the Pirates.
