Jacoby Ellsbury finished 4-for-6 with two RBI, including the game-winning RBI single in the 10th inning, as the Yankees beat out the Royals 5-4 on Tuesday.

Ellsbury had an RBI double in the second inning, and his based-loaded single in the 10th gave the Yankees a lead they wouldn't cough up again. The 32-year-old has strung together a few decent games in the past week or so, going 9-for-27 with a homer, five RBI and seven runs scored in his last six contests. He's hitting .267/.328/.373 with six homers, 45 RBI, 57 runs scored and 18 stolen bases overall.

Jarrod Dyson went 3-for-5 with an RBI triple, a run scored and a stolen base Tuesday against the Yankees.

Batting leadoff and playing center field, Dyson notched his fifth triple of the season in the third inning to get the Royals on the board. The stolen base was his fourth in his past three games, giving him 22 steals on the year. The 32-year-old's numbers never recovered from an early-season slump, and in the meantime his starting job was copped by Paulo Orlando. Dyson is hitting .248/.321/.353 on the year.

Welington Castillo went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

Castillo came through with a two-run single to cap off a four-run fifth inning against Johnny Cueto. The pair of RBI boosted his season total to 56. He is working to a .278/.334/.449 triple-slash across 344 at-bats and has been swinging a molten stick of late, with multi-hit efforts in six of his last 10 games and nine RBI in his last four.
Aug 31 - 1:42 AM

Aaron Judge hit his third home run of the season, a two-run shot, in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

The homer was Judge's only hit in five at-bats, and he struck out twice on the night. That's been a common theme through his first 15 major league games, as Judge now has 24 strikeouts in 51 at-bats. The power is legitimate, but he'll need to make more contact before he's a viable major league starting-caliber outfielder.
Aug 31 - 1:42 AM

Angel Pagan went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Pagan was part of a mini-rally in the bottom of the ninth inning. His RBI single off Daniel Hudson with two outs drew the Giants to within 4-3 and gave the home faithful something to hope for, but next batter Buster Posey would ground out to end the game. For the season, Pagan is hitting .294/.348/.438 with nine homers, 44 RBI and 13 steals across 377 at-bats.

Edinson Volquez allowed nine hits and four runs over 3 1/3 innings against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Volquez didn't have much of anything going, and the quick hook was the third consecutive start in which Volquez has failed to make it out of the sixth inning. He now owns a 5.01 ERA in 28 starts this year, a disappointing mark after the 33-year-old posted a 3.55 ERA for the Royals last season. Volquez will try to take advantage of a bad Twins team when the two meet on Monday.
Aug 31 - 1:40 AM

Masahiro Tanaka allowed two runs over five innings in a rain-shortened start Tuesday against the Royals.

Tanaka was at 71 pitches when the rain came, and after the delay he was out of the game. It was a shame, as he'd allowed just four hits without issuing a walk and seemed on his way to another strong outing. The no-decision leaves his record at 11-4, and the right-hander owns a 3.12 ERA and 1.06 WHIP through 27 starts this year. A matchup with the division-rival Blue Jays is up next for Tanaka on Monday.
Aug 31 - 1:37 AM

Zack Greinke handcuffed the Giants in Tuesday's win, yielding just two runs (one earned) on six hits over six innings.

Greinke wasn't mowing them down -- he struck out one on the evening -- but it was an effective outing nonetheless. Brandon Crawford managed a sacrifice fly in the third and Joe Panik an RBI double in the sixth to account for the scoring on Greinke's watch. He will carry a 4.17 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into a road date with the Dodgers next time he takes the mound.
Aug 31 - 1:37 AM

Johnny Cueto was up-and-down in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks, surrendering four runs on five hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Cueto simply could not find the strike zone. He walked four and threw just 52 of his 89 pitches for strikes. All four runs on his line came home in the fifth inning. The veteran ace will look for sharper results when he takes his 2.98 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 163/38 K/BB ratio (184 1/3 innings) into a potentially trying road showdown with the Cubs next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 31 - 1:36 AM

C.J. Cron rocked a pair of home runs and finished with three RBI in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Reds.

Cron burned Reds starter Tim Adleman twice on Tuesday, mashing a two-run home run in the first inning and a solo tater in the third. He also homered in the series-opener on Monday and has now launched 14 on the season. In addition, the 26-year-old first baseman is slashing .288/.337/.498. He has picked up eight hits in his last 12 at-bats. Five of those have gone for extra bases.
Aug 31 - 1:18 AM

Eugenio Suarez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

Suarez bopped a two-run home run off Jered Weaver in the seventh inning. That dinger would represent the only scoring for the Reds on the evening. For the season as a whole, Suarez is hitting .248/.316/.429 with 20 homers and 61 RBI over 459 at-bats. Tuesday's home run was his first since August 13.
Aug 31 - 1:11 AM

Jered Weaver turned in a nice performance in Tuesday's win over the Reds, surrendering two runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Weaver struck out five without walking a batter in what was about as clean a start as the veteran right-hander has tossed this season. He kept the Reds off the scoreboard completely until Eugenio Suarez hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning. This makes back-to-back respectable outings for Weaver, who holds a rough 5.21 ERA and 1.51 WHIP for the season as a whole. A road showdown with the Mariners shows next on his schedule.
Aug 31 - 1:08 AM

Tim Adleman pitched respectably in Tuesday's loss to the Angels, yielding three runs on seven hits over six innings.

Adleman struck out four and walked one on the evening. C.J. Cron proved to be his nemesis in this one, whacking a two-run home run in the first inning and following up with a solo shot in the third. Outside of those pesky home runs, though, Adleman kept the scoreboard clean. The 28-year-old right-hander has now pitched to a 3.82 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 35 1/3 frames. Up next on the docket, a home showdown with the Mets.
Aug 31 - 1:07 AM

Denard Span left Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks due to a stiff neck.

Span saw three at-bats before Gorkys Hernandez took over in center for the veteran outfielder midway through the game. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward. The Giants will reevaluate him on Wednesday.
Aug 31 - 12:59 AM

Rougned Odor hit a two-run, walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday to give the Rangers an 8-7 win over the Mariners.

Odor finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored, but it was his last hit that loomed the largest. After a leadoff single by Adrian Beltre, Odor drove a low offering from Edwin Diaz to straightaway center to give the Rangers the come-from-behind victory. Odor has 25 homers and 67 RBI this year, and he's hitting .272/.294/.491 overall.
