Mark Buehrle fired eight innings of one-run ball in Sunday's victory over the Astros.

He struck out seven, walked two and scattered seven hits. Buehrle was spectacular against an atrocious offense, but he was lucky to escape with the victory, as Toronto trailed 1-0 when Buehrle's day ended after the eighth but scored two runs to win in the top of the ninth. The veteran left-hander improves to 10-7 with a 4.08 ERA.

Eugenio Suarez went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer to help the Reds to an 8-6 victory on Sunday over the Pirates.

The homer came off of Joe Musgrove, and it gives the underrated third baseman 14 on the season. Somewhat quietly, Suarez now has his line on the year up to .297/.384/.569, and the 14 homers and 52 RBI are more impressive when you remember he missed a couple of weeks while on the disabled list. He's also homered in back-to-back games, and his hitting streak extends to eight.

Hector Rondon earned his fourth save Sunday in the Astros' series finale against the Royals.

Ken Giles worked the eighth inning in this one, to give you an idea of where the Astros' bullpen roles currently stand. Rondon has bullrushed his way into the closer role with a dominant 1.38 ERA and 31/6 K/BB ratio in 26 total innings this season. He hasn't allowed a run in over a month. Giles is still worth owning, and so is Chris Devenski, but Rondon appears to be the preferred ninth-inning man right now for manager A.J. Hinch.

Julio Teheran pitched six no-hit innings while striking out 11 in a 4-1 victory over the Padres on Sunday.

Teheran did walk three, and his 95 pitches through six innings made it impossible for him to finish the no-no, especially considering it was his first start off the disabled list. Nevertheless, it’s still a dominating effort from the right-hander, and the Padres were unable to do anything with him while Teheran showed the stuff that made him one of the most intriguing young starters not long ago. The effort lower’s Teheran’s ERA to 3.97 on the season, and he’s now struck out 67 hitters over 77 innings over 14 starts. He’ll look to continue this into his next start, but that has yet to be scheduled. It likely comes at the end of the weekend against the Orioles or next Monday against the Reds.

Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the Astros' 7-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Correa opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the top of the first, belted a solo homer in the top of the eighth, and tallied his third RBI of the afternoon on a run-scoring sac fly in the top of the ninth. The 23-year-old shortstop boasts an .855 OPS, 13 home runs, and 47 RBI in 245 at-bats this season for the defending-champion Astros, who have rattled off 11 straight victories -- 10 of them on the road. It's the second-longest winning streak in franchise history.

Michael Taylor stole four bases and scored two runs on three hits in a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Taylor had the green light early and often against Toronto, and the four steals upped his season total to 21 on the season on 23 attempts. It's also nice to see the right-hander have some hits drop, although the three hits only raise his season average to .236. Still, with the four steals the athletic outfielder is on pace to steal 50 bases, and his ability to swipe makes him fantasy relevant.

Randal Grichuk hit a pair of homers and drove in four runs in an 8-6 victory over the Nationals on Sunday.

Grichuk also singled and walked, so this was a big day for the young outfielder. Both homers were solo shots, with one coming off of Tanner Roark and the other off of Shawn Kelley. He now has seven on the season, and the big day helps Grichuk up his slash to .196/.276/.429. That line doesn't illustrate how well he's been playing as of late, however, as he was hitting just .146 on June 7.

Justin Bour went 2-for-5 with two homers and drove in four runs in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

Bour provided the offense for the Marlins on Sunday, hitting a pair of two-run homers off of Dylan Bundy that bring his total on the season to 12. His batting average sits at .240, but his .367 on-base percentage remains strong, and he's driven in 33 runs over 70 games with the Marlins in 2018.
Jun 17 - 4:47 PM

Mark Trumbo went 3-for-5 with a homer to help the Orioles to a 10-4 victory over the Marlins on Sunday.

Trumbo also doubled, and he drove in two while scoring three runs. The homer came off of Merandy Gonzalez in the seventh, and it gives the veteran slugger four on the 2018 season. Injuries have limited Trumbo to just 37 games, and he hasn't shown much consistency thus far this year as seen in his .261/.320/420 line.

Yan Gomes drove in three runs in a 4-1 victory over the Twins on Sunday.

Gomes drove in all three on one play; as his double with the bases loaded in the third inning scored everyone and gave the Indians the 4-1 lead and the eventual victory. The backstop now has 24 RBI, and the double is the 11th on his season. His .250/.311/.464 line isn't spectacular, but it's much more impressive when you consider that he's doing it as a catcher.

Justin Upton (back) is back in the Angels' lineup Sunday.

Upton missed Saturday's game with lower back stiffness, but he's now ready to roll. He is in left field and batting third against Daniel Mengden and the Athletics.
Jun 17 - 3:19 PM

Whit Merrifield was pulled from Sunday's game against the Astros after fouling a ball off his left knee.

Merrifield looked to be in a ton of pain and had to limp off the field. He's surely headed for X-rays and the Royals should have an update on his condition later Sunday. Adalberto Mondesi took his place and would be in line for regular starts at second base should Merrifield need to miss time.
