Cliff Lee (elbow) will make his next minor league rehab start Wednesday with High-A Clearwater.

Lee was only able to throw two innings Sunday during his first rehab start because of rain, so he'll pitch on short rest. The southpaw remains on track to rejoin the Phillies shortly after the All-Star break.

Austin Jackson clubbed a grand slam and walked in six plate appearances on Tuesday as the Mariners outlasted the Tigers in 11 innings on Tuesday.

Jackson cleared the bases with a four-bagger in the third inning against Kyle Ryan. It was a rare sign of life at the plate for the outfielder, who's still only hitting .254/.300/.363 with four home runs and 19 RBI with eight stolen bases.

Robinson Cano sent the Mariners to a victory in the 11th inning with a walk-off single on Tuesday against the Tigers.

Cano finished 2-for-6. He had hit a solo home run in the fifth inning to break a 5-5 tie. In the 11th, the Mariners put runners on first and second with one out for him and he delivered, driving a single to right field to plate the winning run. Cano may finally be figuring things out at the plate, as he's registered multiple hits in four of seven July games. He's still carrying a measly .253/.292/.373 triple-slash line with six home runs and 29 RBI, however.

Jake Lamb went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base as the Diamondbacks edged the Rangers 4-2 on Tuesday.

Lamb's two-run single in the fifth inning opened the scoring, and the Diamondbacks would never relinquish the lead. It was another strong showing for the 24-year-old, who continues to round into form after a foot injury stole nearly two months from him. Lamb is now hitting .304/.376/.446 through 34 games and has forced Yasmany Tomas to a corner outfield spot with his play. Lamb will look to finish strong ahead of next week's All-Star break.

Hunter Pence, in his return from the disabled list, went 1-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in to help the Giants beat the Mets on Tuesday.

Pence had been out for more than a month due to tendinitis in his left wrist. The outfielder knocked in his first run with a fielder's choice in the third inning, then added an RBI single in the fifth. In 80 plate appearances this season, Pence is hitting .280/.325/.440 with two home runs and 15 RBI.

Jason Motte allowed a run on three hits but recovered to earn the save in the Cubs' 5-3 win over the Cardinals in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Motte gave up singles to Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos to start the ninth and, after recording an out, a Tony Cruz RBI single made things interesting. But Motte righted the ship to get Matt Carpenter and Jhonny Peralta out to end the threat, securing a sweep of the doubleheader for the Cubs. Motte now has five saves to go with a 2.97 ERA and 1.08 WHIP, and Tuesday's usage further confirms he's currently the closer du jour for Cubs manager Joe Maddon.
Jul 8 - 1:07 AM

Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a solo home run as the Phillies beat the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Francoeur added insurance as his two-run double made it 3-0 in the third inning, and he'd later come around to score. He homered off of Juan Nicasio in the seventh to make it a 7-2 game. The veteran has lived up to expectations, providing some power every now and then but not much else. Francoeur owns a .259/.292/.431 triple-slash line with six home runs and 26 RBI.

Mike Trout hit one of the Angels' four home runs Tuesday, finishing 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored in a 10-2 victory.

Trout was hit by a pitch and scored in the first inning before blasting a three-run homer in the second. The home run was his 22nd home run of the season. The all-everything outfielder is once again among the American League leaders in most every category and will make his third straight All-Star Game start next week. Trout is hitting .302/.396/.584 with 48 RBI, 62 runs scored and nine steals on the year.
Jul 8 - 12:45 AM

Manny Banuelos held the Brewers to one run over 5 1/3 innings to earn his first major league win, a 4-3 victory, on Tuesday.

The second batter of the game, Jonathan Lucroy, hit a solo shot off Banuelos, but the southpaw locked it down after that. Banuelos scattered five hits and three walks on the evening. The 24-year-old has been effective, if brief, in his two major league starts, throwing a combined 11 innings while allowing just the one run. A date with the Rockies in Colorado on Sunday may not be so friendly to Banuelos.
Jul 8 - 12:11 AM

Tests showed that Kolten Wong suffered a mild concussion during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Cubs.

Wong said after the game that he passed the test and is fine, but obviously that wasn't the case. That he says he's feeling OK suggests maybe he won't need to go on the 7-day concussion disabled list, but we should know more on Wednesday.
Jul 7 - 11:52 PM

Miguel Sano hit his first major league home run and the Twins raced past the Orioles 8-3 on Tuesday.

Sano hit the blast, a two-run shot, off Orioles starter Kevin Gausman in the first inning. He later collected an RBI walk, finishing 2-for-3 with three RBI. Through six games the 22-year-old has been as advertised, hitting .450 with a 1.242 OPS and five RBI. If all goes as planned, the homer will be the first of many Sano will hit over the course of his career.
Jul 7 - 11:50 PM

Gregory Polanco delivered a run scoring triple late to help the Pirates edge the Padres on Tuesday.

Polanco finished 1-for-3 with a pair of walks on the evening. He tripled to bring in Sean Rodriguez and break a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the eighth inning. All the Pirates had to do was bring in Mark Melancon from there. The 23-year-old has otherwise had a quiet year offensively, batting .232/.304/.336 with three home runs and 20 RBI.
