Wil Myers went 1-for-2 with a three-run homer, a steal and three walks in Tuesday's 11-7 loss to the Orioles.
Myers launched his three-run homer in the seventh inning. He has been nothing short of phenomenal in the month of June, swatting 11 homers and driving 31 runs this month alone. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .284/.343/.530 with 18 homers, 53 RBI and 11 steals across 296 at-bats.
Ubaldo Jimenez survived four walks allowed to limit the Padres to one run over five innings in Tuesday's win.
Jimenez scattered three hits while striking out five. The only run to score on his watch came when Melvin Upton Jr. launched a monster solo home run to center in the first inning. The O's dropped Jimenez out of the rotation in mid-June due to a myriad of disastrous results, but he has now earned two consecutive starts and allowed three runs across 11 innings in those outings. That isn't to say that Jimenez is out of the woods -- he still holds a 6.63 ERA and 1.91 WHIP -- but at the very least, he has probably earned himself another start.
Erik Johnson wasn't particularly impressive in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles, surrendering four runs on seven hits over five innings.
Johnson struck out just two on the evening. Three of the four runs on his line came home via a pair of home runs, with Adam Jones jacking a solo shot in the first inning and Hyun-soo Kim cracking a two-run shot in the fifth. Through six starts, the 26-year-old right-hander holds a tough 9.15 ERA and 1.88 WHIP. A road date with the Diamondbacks shows next on his schedule, but there is no fantasy intrigue here.
Carlos Correa was a monster in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Angels, finishing 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and four total RBI.
Correa jumped the Astros out to a 3-0 lead when he smacked a three-run homer off Tim Lincecum in the first inning. He would drive in his fourth run of the game with an RBI ground out in the seventh inning. The 21-year-old phenom has been scalding the ball of late and has picked up five doubles in his last 10 games. In that same space, he has driven in 14 runs. For the season, Correa is slashing .265/.363/.474 with 13 homers, 47 RBI and eight steals across 283 at-bats.
Albert Pujols went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.
Pujols notched a third-inning RBI single against Scott Feldman. The Angels would not score another run in the game. The veteran's triple-slash of .244/.317/.412 leaves much to be desired, but Pujols does have a respectable 14 homers and 49 RBI despite his other offensive shortcomings.
