Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Twins fell to the Dodgers on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

Dozier's two-run double gave the Twins a 5-0 lead in the fourth inning. That would be the extent of their offense in the ballgame though. The hard-hitting second baseman is now hitting .249/.334/.441 with 16 homers, 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Ervin Santana pitched decently in Wednesday's no-decision against the Dodgers, allowing four runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

The All-Star right-hander racked up seven strikeouts on the night and didn't walk a batter. He allowed a pair of solo homers to Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig in the fourth and fifth innings respectively, then allowed the Dodgers to rally for two more before departing in the seventh. Santana now owns a 3.37 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 104/47 K/BB ratio on the season. He'll do battle against the Padres his next time out in San Diego on Wednesday.

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5, drove in a run and scored twice against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Moustakas singled to drive in the first of nine runs the Royals would score in the seventh inning. He was also hit by a pitch in the ninth inning that prompted the ejection of reliever Bruce Rondon. Moustakas is having by far the best season of his career. He is slashing .275/.303/.563 with 29 bombs and 65 RBI. The only thing he doesn't do is steal bases. He has already blown past his career high of 22 home runs in a season and is sneaking up on his career high of 82 RBI.

Jul 27 - 1:07 AM

Ian Kennedy took home an easy win by allowing one run in six innings during a 16-2 smoking of the Tigers on Wednesday.

The game was actually pretty close while Kennedy was pitching. He left with a 4-1 lead then watched from the dugout as his teammates turned the game into a laugher in the late innings. Kennedy allowed just three base hits and two walks while striking out four in the contest. He improves to 4-6 with a 4.43 ERA in 19 starts.

Andrew Romine went 2-for-2 and scored a run as his team got blown out by the Royals on Wednesday.

He didn't start the game but came on to pinch-hit for Miguel Cabrera in the seventh inning with the score already 13-1. He reached on an infield single in that at-bat and later scored on a double-play ball hit by Alex Avila. Romine singled again in the ninth inning but was left stranded. The utility infielder has gotten quite a bit of playing time for a backup, slashing .228/.293/.355 with four home runs, 18 RBI and 33 runs in 217 plate appearances.
Jul 27 - 12:56 AM

Anibal Sanchez surrendered four runs in 3 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Royals on Wednesday.

He got hit with the loss even though there were 12 runs given up by other Tiger pitchers in the ballgame. He allowed nine hits and two walks while striking out four batters in the brief outing. It was just one of those nights where hits were falling in left and right no matter how hard or soft the Royals hit the ball. Sanchez falls to 2-1 with a 6.18 ERA in 59 2/3 innings spread across seven starts and 11 relief appearances. He has 56 strikeouts against just 18 walks but it is the 13 homers that have ruined his season.
Jul 27 - 12:49 AM

Carlos Carrasco let in two runs over 6 1/3 innings and did not get a decision as his team beat the Angels 10-4 on Wednesday.

Carrasco pitched well all evening but was relieved before the Indians erupted for seven runs in the eighth inning. He struck out five batters without issuing a base-on-balls in the contest. He gave up six hits, including a solo homer by first baseman Luis Valbuena in the seventh inning. Carrasco's record holds at 10-4 with a 3.58 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 20 starts. He has an elite 135/31 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 123 1/3 innings.
Jul 27 - 12:42 AM

He led off the first inning with a solo home run off Ricky Nolasco, then added an RBI double in the seventh inning.

He has a .277 batting average with six homers, 33 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 213 plate appearances.
Jul 27 - 12:35 AM

Carlos Santana went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Angels.

He helped break the game open in the eighth inning by contributing an RBI single that plated Michael Brantley, then came around to score on a Yan Gomes double. The Tribe scored seven runs in that frame. Santana has been strong at the plate lately after a weak first half. He is batting .244/.340/.421 with 12 home runs, 56 runs scored and 53 RBI in 415 plate appearances.
Jul 27 - 12:30 AM

Mike Trout went 3-for-5 but didn't factor into the scoring in Wednesday's loss to the Indians.

All three hits were singles. The superstar hasn't skipped a beat since returning from a torn thumb ligament that cost him six weeks on the disabled list. He is batting .333/.454/.711 with 19 home runs and 42 RBI in 57 games. He has stolen 12 bases in 13 tries.
Jul 27 - 12:25 AM
