Trevor Story went 1-for-4 with a game-winning solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning in Sunday's 4-3 victory against the Mariners.

The walk-off homer was the first of Story's career, and he extended his hitting streak to 10 games with the late-game heroics to tie a career long. Story wraps up the first half slashing .292/.353/.557 with 20 homers and 68 RBI. He is second behind Nolan Arenado for the team lead in homers, and tied with the hot corner man for the team lead in RBI. The duo is also tied for sixth in the majors in RBI.

Ian Desmond went 2-for-3 with a triple and a run scored in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Mariners.

It wasn't all great, as he also grounded into a double play. However, the slugger continues to trend in the right direction in the batting average category. He dug himself a huge hole with a .154 average in April, and had a subpar .215 mark in May. However, he has come alive since the middle of June to raise his average from .195 on June 14 to .235 heading into the All-Star break. Fantasy owners would have dumped him long ago if not for his above-average power. He heads into the break with 18 homers and 56 RBI, making his low average a little more tolerable.

Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports that the Cubs are one of eight teams that have expressed interest in acquiring Orioles' left-hander Zach Britton.

Britton's market has perked up in recent weeks as the 30-year-old left-hander has seemed to have rediscovered his form. His velocity is up, his sinker is biting once again, and he was able to record saves on back-to-back days over the weekend for the first time this season. Levine notes that the Cubs also have interest in Padres' closer Brad Hand, though the asking price will be much higher there as Hand is under contract for two additional seasons while Britton is a free agent at season's end.

Tyler Anderson allowed two earned runs, five hits and a walk with six strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Sunday.

Anderson and Mike Leake were locked in a solid pitcher's duel, something you do not see very often in the rarefied air at Coors Field. The Colorado southpaw wrapped up the first half on a high note, posting four consecutive quality starts with a pair of wins and a 0.96 ERA across his past 28 innings. He also has five or more strikeouts in eight straight outings.

Mitch Haniger posted a pair of singles with an RBI across four at-bats in Sunday's 4-3 loss in Colorado.

Haniger, who is heading to his first All-Star Game with teammates Nelson Cruz, Edwin Diaz and Jean Segura, wrapped up the first half slashing .272/.358/.488 with 37 extra-base hits, including 18 homers, and 67 RBI. His RBI rank eighth in the majors, and third in the American League. His numbers are especially impressive considering Safeco Field, his home park, ranks 27th in the majors in runs according to MLB Park Factors.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Angels have been getting calls on relievers Blake Parker, Cam Bedrosian and Justin Anderson.

Every contender is seemingly in the market for an extra arm to bolster their respective bullpen, and the Angels would like to capitalize, due to the volatile nature of relief pitching on a year-to-year basis. All three hurlers have multiple years of team control remaining, so they will be looking to land some quality prospects in return for any of them.

According to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times, the Mariners' interest in Cole Hamels earlier this month was "greatly overplayed"

It sounds as though their reported interest in the Rangers' southpaw was merely the due diligence of general manager Jerry Dipoto, who according to Divish "checks in on every player and will never toss away any proposal immediately." Hamels wrapped up his first half of the season on Friday, registering a 5-8 record, 4.36 ERA and 1.34 WHIP across 109 1/3 innings.

Dee Gordon finished 2-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's 4-3 loss in Colorado.

Gordon is slashing .283/.283/.348 in the first half while posting 18 extra-base hits, 44 runs scored and 22 RBI with 22 steals on 28 attempts. Fantasy owners might be a little concerned with his lack of steals lately, going 11 straight games without a theft. Perhaps his hip and back are still bothering him a little bit. He'll use the All-Star break to rest up. Despite some lower-body ailments he still leads the American League with 22 stolen bases heading into the second half, one ahead of Chicago White Sox SS Tim Anderson.
