Brad Miller launched a two-run home run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mariners shut the Padres out 5-0 on Tuesday.

Miller took Ian Kennedy out to right-center in the fourth inning for a two-run homer, making it a 4-0 Mariners lead at the time. It's his seventh homer of the season. He looks certain to surpass his career high of 10 set last season. He's also knocked in 22 runs while batting a passable .237/.316/.404.

Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI.

Ian Kennedy gave up four runs over five innings to take the loss on Tuesday against the Mariners.

Mike Zunino ripped a solo home run in the third inning to open the scoring. An Austin Jackson RBI single and a two-run Brad Miller home run created a three-run fourth to account for the rest of the offense. Kennedy allowed five hits and a walk overall while striking out five. The right-hander has looked competent at times this season, but hasn't been able to gather any momentum. He has a 5.23 ERA with a 1.34 WHIP and a 70/23 K/BB ratio in 74 innings. Kennedy will try to change his luck with a road start against the Cardinals in his next trip out to the mound.

Eduardo Nunez finished 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Twins trumped the Reds 8-5 on Tuesday.

Nunez and the Twins racked up 15 hits against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds bullpen. The shortstop had three of them, collecting two singles and a double. He also stole his third base of the season. Nunez' usage has been inexplicable at times -- the light-hitting shortstop has served as the team's designated hitter in 11 games this year -- but he's put up decent numbers through 33 games, hitting .305/.350/.516 with 11 RBI and 13 runs scored. Perhaps he'll begin garnering more of the playing time at short with his hot hitting.

Mike Montgomery flashed terrific stuff in a shutout of the Padres on Tuesday, losing a bid for a no-hitter in the seventh inning.

Montgomery has been on fire since debuting in the majors for the first time at the beginning of June. On Tuesday, he brought a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but lost it with one out when Yangervis Solarte doubled. It was the only hit he allowed in nine innings along with four walks and seven strikeouts. Montgomery now has tossed back-to-back shutouts. The left-hander, through six starts, owns a stellar 1.62 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and a 29/12 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings. He'll start in Oakland against the Athletics next.

Eugenio Suarez hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

Suarez hit a solo shot off Phil Hughes in the third inning to get the Reds on the board. The homer was his second in 17 games this season. Suarez took over for Zack Cozart at shortstop and has held his own, hitting .328/.369/.475. Despite that, his offensive upside is limited and he can be ignored in most fantasy formats.
Jul 1 - 12:34 AM

Joe Mauer went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

Mauer scored a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning before adding an RBI single in the eighth. It was Mauer's first multi-RBI game since June 5, as he totaled nine RBI for the month of June. The multi-hit game was just his fifth this month. With Tuesday's game, Mauer is now hitting .263/.334/.370 with 39 RBI on the year.
Jul 1 - 12:32 AM

Torii Hunter went 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored Tuesday against the Reds.

Hunter had a single, double and homer in the contest, but he couldn't collect his 40th career triple to complete the cycle. Still, the 39-year-old has been on a tear in recent days -- the homer was his fourth in his last four games, giving him 12 dingers on the year. Hunter is hitting .272/.328/.464 with 44 RBI and 40 runs scored overall.
Jul 1 - 12:31 AM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed six runs on 11 hits over 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

DeSclafani managed to stay mostly dry through the first six innings, allowing three runs but keeping the Twins from putting up a crooked number, but things didn't go so well in the seventh. Two inherited runners being allowed to score didn't help his cause. On the bright side, he did strike out seven in the effort. The loss dropped DeSclafani to 5-6 with a 3.68 ERA and 1.35 WHIP through 16 starts. The 25-year-old will try to bounce back Monday at the Nationals.
Jul 1 - 12:31 AM

Phil Hughes allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Hughes gave up seven hits and a walk in the outing, and two of the runs credited to him scored after Hughes had left the game. The other two came on solo homers, a problem that has popped back up for the right-hander this season. After allowing just 16 homers and 32 starts last year, Hughes has now allowed 19 homers through 16 starts in 2015. Even so, he's now 7-6 with a 4.10 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Hughes will take on the AL Central-rival Royals on Sunday.

Francisco Rodriguez saw his way out of trouble to pick up his 17th save as the Brewers wrapped up a 4-3 victory against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Rodriguez walked Ben Revere to start the inning, then saw Cesar Hernandez reach base when Jonathan Lucroy made a poor throw to second base following a bunt. With two on and nobody out, Rodriguez struck out Maikel Franco, got Andres Blanco to weakly fly out, and struck out Jeff Francoeur to end the game. His record remains unblemished, earning the save in all 17 chances with a 1.50 ERA and a 36/9 K/BB ratio in 30 innings.
Jul 1 - 12:02 AM

Tyler Flowers hit a solo home run in the 11th inning to lead the White Sox to a 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Flowers took reliever Miguel Socolovich deep to break a 1-1 tie. The catcher finished 2-for-5 in the game. The homer was his sixth of the season and his second in as many games. Flowers is hitting .217/.268/.369 while splitting time behind the dish for the Sox.
Jul 1 - 12:00 AM

Taylor Jungmann notched a quality start in Tuesday's win versus the Phillies, allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings.

Two runs scored on ground outs in the second and third innings. Carlos Ruiz slugged a solo home run off of him in the sixth. Jungmann gave up five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four on the evening. The right-hander has been solid in five starts thus far, sporting a 2.79 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and a 23/8 K/BB ratio over 29 innings. Jungmann will try to keep it going when he starts against the Reds on the road next.
Jul 1 - 12:00 AM

Randal Grichuk went 3-for-5 with a home run in a loss against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Grichuk had three of the Cardinals' eight hits on the evening, including the homer off Sox ace Chris Sale in the fourth inning. Grichuk also doubled in the game, falling a triple shy of the cycle. The outfielder has gotten regular playing time in the absence of Matt Holliday and has thrived, hitting .284/.318/.574 with seven homers, 21 RBI and 23 runs scored in 46 games. The club may have to find more opportunities for him when Holliday returns in July.
Jul 1 - 12:00 AM

Cole Hamels pitched effectively against the Brewers, giving up only two runs in seven innings, but was left with a no-decision in Tuesday's loss.

Both runs scored in the first inning on Aramis Ramirez's two-out, two-run single. Hamels was solid the rest of the way, giving up only five hits and a walk overall while striking out seven. The lefty owns a 3.22 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and a 113/35 K/BB ratio over 106 1/3 innings. Hamels will make an afternoon start in Atlanta next.
