Chris Tillman allowed just two hits over seven scoreless innings in a win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Tillman matched a season-high with eight strikeouts and retired 19 out of the final 21 batters he faced. The 25-year-old right-hander now sits at 13-3 with a 3.62 ERA and 104/47 K/BB ratio over 126 2/3 innings this season. He should be started in mixed fantasy leagues next week with a start against the Astros on tap.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with three RBI, including a walk-off RBI single in the ninth inning, as the White Sox edged the Mariners 7-6 on Thursday.

Frazier yanked a Steve Cishek pitch through the left side of the infield in the seventh inning to plate two runs and tie the game, and he finished what he started two innings later. That time, he pulled a Nick Vincent offering over the third baseman's head and into the left field corner to bring home the winning run. Driving in runs is one thing the 30-year-old has done well this year, collecting 80 RBI, and he's also got 31 home runs. Those numbers have helped redeem a disappointing .211/.293/.447 line overall.

Matt Wisler was fantastic in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks, tossing eight innings of two-hit, one-run ball.

Wisler wasn't particularly adept at hitting the strike zone -- he walked three and only managed strikes on 62 of 103 pitches -- but the Diamondbacks were unable to square him up. Jean Segura and Paul Goldschmidt managed singles against the 23-year-old right-hander, with Goldschmidt scoring on a Chris Owings ground out in the seventh inning. That was it for the damage on Wisler's watch. This was his first major league appearance since late July and dropped his ERA from 5.16 to 4.92. Baby steps. Wisler will try for a similar result when he returns to his home confines to help play host to the Padres next time he toes the rubber.

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI, including the game-winning RBI single in the 10th inning, to lead the Pirates past the Brewers 3-2 on Thursday.

Cutch was up to the task all evening, hitting a solo homer in the first before knocking an RBI single in the third and his game-winner in the 10th. The homer was his 18th of the season to give him 55 RBI and 65 runs scored. It's still not the Andrew McCutchen we've come to know and expect, but he's now hitting .303 in the month of August and is batting .250/.329/.419 in 116 games overall.

Cole Hamels allowed just two hits over eight shutout innings, striking out eight, as the Rangers skunked the Indians 9-0 on Thursday.

Hamels was brilliant, yielding just a pair of singles and not walking a batter in his eight innings. The start was his sixth consecutive quality start and the eighth in a row in which he's allowed three or fewer runs. It shouldn't be surprising, then, that the southpaw is 14-4 with a 2.67 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 26 starts total. Hamels will try to keep rolling Tuesday against the Mariners.

Carlos Gomez wasted little time Thursday endearing himself to Rangers fans, hitting a three-run home run in his first at-bat against the Indians.

Of course, he finished 1-for-4 with the homer and a strikeout, but it's the big fly that people will latch onto. Gomez was so bad with the Astros that they waived him after giving up an attractive package of prospects for him at last year's trade deadline, but the Rangers hope they can catch lightning in a bottle. If they can, Gomez could be in a really good spot with that lineup and ballpark. While those odds remain long, Thursday was a start.

Alejandro De Aza went 2-for-4 with a home run and five RBI to help the Mets hold off the Cardinals 10-6 on Thursday.

De Aza did his damage with a pair of swings, knocking a two-run single in the fourth before swatting a three-run home run an inning later. The homer was the fifth for De Aza on the year. The 32-year-old may get a little bit more run with Jay Bruce day to day, but when Bruce returns it'll be back to the bench for De Aza. And rightfully so, as the outfielder is hitting .196/.291/.324 on the year.

Brandon Moss went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

Moss hit a two-run shot off the right field foul pole to get the Cards on the board in the sixth inning, and he added a solo homer in the eighth for good measure. Moss now has 25 home runs and 60 RBI in 96 games. He also hit 25 bombs in Oakland in 2014, and his single-season best is 30, also with the A's, in 2013. With over a month to play, Moss has a shot at setting a new record this year.
Aug 25 - 11:55 PM

Alcides Escobar finished 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals' 5-2 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Escobar flashed some rarely seen pop in the fourth inning, turning on a Tom Koehler pitch for his third homer of the year. That should be about it for the 29-year-old, who has hit between three and five home runs in each of his last seven seasons. He's also enjoyed a good month of August so far, batting .298 with two of his three homers, 11 RBI and 12 runs scored. Escobar is hitting .263/.292/.331 with 14 steals and 46 runs scored overall.

The Phillies will recall C Jorge Alfaro from Double-A Reading on Friday, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

The Phillies need a backup catcher after trading Carlos Ruiz to the Dodgers on Thursday. A.J. Ellis will join the team at some point this weekend but may not arrive in time for Friday's game against the Mets. The Phillies acquired Alfaro last summer as part of the Cole Hamels trade. He's had a nice year for himself, hitting .279 with 13 HR and 61 RBI in 90 games for the Fightin Phils.
Aug 25 - 11:34 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored as the Angels doubled up the Blue Jays 6-3 on Thursday.

Trout did all his damage with singles, plating two with a single in the sixth inning before coming through with another two-run single in the seventh. He's now got 82 RBI to go with 97 runs scored -- third-most in the American League -- and a .316/.432/.555 line. He also recently became a member of the 20/20 club, owning 24 homers and 21 steals through 126 games.
Aug 25 - 11:08 PM

Max Scherzer struck out 10 batters over eight scoreless innings as the Nationals blanked the Orioles 4-0 on Thursday.

Scherzer gave up just two hits on the night without walking a batter. It was the 11th time in 27 starts that he's registered double-digit strikeouts this year. The right-hander is now 14-7 with a 2.92 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 227/44 K/BB ratio overall. An attractive date with the Phillies is on tap for Tuesday.
