Neil Walker went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the Brewers topped the Giants 4-3 on Tuesday night in San Francisco.

Walker has been on fire since joining the Brewers, hitting .444 (12-for-27) with a homer and five RBI in his first eight games. He could wind up being a critical cog for a team that's clawing for a postseason berth. With this victory, the Brewers are currently three games back of the second Wild Card spot in the National League.

Travis Shaw clubbed a go-ahead RBI double in the seventh inning on Tuesday as the Brewers rallied to beat the Giants.

He finished the night 1-for-5, but certainly made that one hit count. Shaw has been a steady and consistent run producer in the middle of the Brewers' lineup this season, slashing .285/.355/.544 with 27 long balls and 81 RBI.
Aug 23 - 1:43 AM

Corey Knebel earned his 27th save of the season on Tuesday, working a scoreless ninth inning against the Giants to protect a one-run advantage.

Knebel allowed a leadoff single to Kelby Tomlinson, but he was cut down attempting to steal second base. He has been outstanding in the closer's role this season, compiling a 1.36 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 100/33 K/BB ratio in 59 2/3 innings.

Jimmy Nelson wasn't at his best on Tuesday, giving up three runs on seven hits over five innings in a no-decision against the Giants.

Nelson also surrendered three free passes in the game, though he did strike out six. The Giants scratched out a run against him in the second inning, then added on with a two-run blast from Brandon Crawford in the fifth. He'll carry a 3.79 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into Sunday's tilt against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Brandon Crawford launched his 11th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Brewers on Tuesday evening.

Crawford socked a go-ahead two-run homer off of Brewers' starter Jimmy Nelson in the fifth inning, giving the Giants a 3-2 lead. Unfortunately, that would be the last time they'd score in the contest. He finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk, raising his disappointing season slash to .234/.285/.378 to go along with 11 homers and 63 RBI.
Aug 23 - 1:36 AM

Jeff Samardzija pitched well in a no-decision against the Brewers on Tuesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits in six frames.

He fanned four on the night while walking two. Samardzija allowed an RBI single to Keon Broxton in the second inning then the Brewers pushed across an unearned run in the fourth, but that was the extent of their damage against him. The inconsistent right-hander will look to further improve upon his 4.67 ERA and 1.21 WHIP when he does battle against the Padres in San Diego on Monday.
Aug 23 - 1:36 AM

Matt Wieters socked a two-run homer, propelling the Nationals to a 4-3 victory over the Astros on Tuesday night in Houston.

Wieters' two-run blast off of Charlie Morton in the fourth inning gave the Nationals a 4-3 advantage, and that's how the score would remain for the duration. He also drew a walk, finishing the night 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. On the season, Wieters is slashing a disappointing .232/.290/.365 with nine homers and 46 RBI.
Aug 23 - 1:27 AM

Howie Kendrick delivered a two-run triple in the fourth inning on Tuesday as the Nationals defeated the Astros.

Kendricks' two-run triple off of Charlie Morton tied the score at 2-2 in the third inning. It would be his only hit in the contest, finishing the night 1-for-4. The 34-year-old is hitting a terrific .340/.391/.519 with seven homers, 32 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
Aug 23 - 1:24 AM

Sean Doolittle continued to shine in his ninth-inning role on Tuesday, retiring all three hitters he faced to protect a one-run advantage against the Astros.

Doolittle was summoned to face the 9-1-2 hitters in a dangerous Astros' lineup and needed just eight pitches to get the job done, which included a strike out of J.D. Davis. He owns a brilliant 2.89 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 48/7 K/BB ratio across 37 1/3 frames on the year while converting 15 of his 16 save chances.
Aug 23 - 1:21 AM

Tanner Roark earned his 10th victory of the season on Tuesday, limiting the Astros to three runs (two earned) on six hits across 5 2/3 innings.

Roark piled up seven strikeouts on the night while issuing just one free pass. Josh Reddick inflicted most of the damage against him with a pair of RBI singles. Roark will carry a 4.64 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into Sunday night's start against the Mets.
Aug 23 - 1:18 AM

Josh Reddick went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI as the Astros fell to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Reddick opened the scoring in the game with an RBI single that plated George Springer in the first inning. He added another RBI knock in the third that briefly put the Astros ahead 3-2. Reddick has been a tremendous addition to the lineup this year, slashing .298/.345/.472 with 12 homers, 61 RBI and seven stolen bases.
Aug 23 - 1:15 AM

Charlie Morton was saddled with his sixth loss of the season on Tuesday, giving up four runs on five hits over six innings against the Nationals.

The veteran right-hander struck out six and walked one on the night. The Nationals struck for two runs on a Howie Kendrick triple in the third inning then added a two-run blast from Matt Wieters in the fourth that stood as the difference in the game. Morton will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Angels in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Aug 23 - 1:13 AM

Eddie Rosario swatted a two-run homer on Tuesday, powering the Twins to a 4-1 victory over the White Sox.

Rosario has been locked in at the plate in recent weeks and was elevated to the cleanup spot in the order on Tuesday. He responded by depositing a Lucas Giolito offering over the wall in center for a two-run shot in the sixth inning. Rosario finished the night 1-for-4 and is slashing a robust .300/.339/.510 with 18 homers and 53 RBI on the year.
Aug 23 - 1:10 AM

Kennys Vargas clobbered his ninth home run as the Twins topped the White Sox on Tuesday night in Chicago.

Vargas tagged White Sox' rookie right-hander Lucas Giolito for the go-ahead solo shot in the fifth inning which proved to be the difference in the game. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is hitting .245/.296/.440 with nine homers and 31 RBI. He could be worth a look as a matchup play in deeper mixed leagues while Miguel Sano is sidelined.
Aug 23 - 1:07 AM

Matt Belisle picked up his fourth save of the season on Tuesday, working a scoreless ninth inning against the White Sox.

The veteran right-hander was tasked with protecting a three-run lead and didn't disappoint, allowing just a single. He looks to be the man to own in the Twins' bullpen at the moment, but his 4.53 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 43/19 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings on the season don't inspire much confidence.
