Huston Street pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 26th save, putting the finishing touches on Monday's 5-4 victory over the Indians.

Street allowed a one-out single to Michael Bourn, who then second base with two outs, but he was able to get Jose Ramirez to fly out to end the game. Back in the ninth inning after healing up from a groin injury, Street is 26-for-29 in save situations with a 2.72 ERA and a 39/12 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings.

Corey Kluber yielded five runs in 5 2/3 innings, taking his 12th loss of the season on Monday versus the Angels.

Kluber served up 10 hits, including a two-run home run to Conor Gillaspie. He also walked none while striking out four. The right-hander, last year's AL Cy Young Award winner, has been inconsistent this year, sitting on a 3.60 ERA with a 1.12 WHIP and a 176/32 K/BB ratio over 162 2/3 innings. Kluber squares off at home against the Twins next.
Aug 4 - 1:15 AM

Yan Gomes finished 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Angels.

Gomes clubbed a two-run home run in the first inning to extend the Indians' lead to 3-0. The backstop has swung a better bat since the beginning of July, but still has a measly .227/.254/.369 batting line on the year along with six home runs and 20 RBI.
Aug 4 - 1:12 AM

Garrett Richards allowed four runs and struck out a season-high 11 batters in 7 1/3 innings as the Angels hung on to beat the Indians on Monday.

Richards fell behind 3-0 after the first inning, but corrected course after that. He gave up four hits and three walks along with the 11 K's. The right-hander moves to 11-8 on the year with a 3.46 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a 102/44 K/BB ratio over 130 innings. Richards will take the hill at home against the Orioles in his next start.
Aug 4 - 1:11 AM

Caleb Joseph hit an RBI double and a two-run home run in four at-bats on Monday, helping the Orioles to a 9-2 win against the Athletics.

Joseph made it a 6-0 game with a two-run home run off of Jesse Chavez in the fourth inning. He tacked on an RBI double in the fifth inning to make it 8-1. Splitting time with Matt Wieters behind the plate, Joseph is hitting .250/.325/.429 with nine home runs and 37 RBI.
Aug 4 - 1:02 AM

Chris Davis went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Monday's win versus the Athletics.

Davis gave the Orioles a 3-0 lead in the first inning when he took Jesse Chavez yard with a pair of ducks on the pond. He's homered in back-to-back games, and eight times in his last 13 games. Davis now owns a .245/.325/.508 batting line with 27 home runs and 75 RBI.

Jesse Chavez was chased after 3 2/3 innings, giving up six runs to the Orioles in Monday's loss.

Chris Davis put Chavez against the ropes early with a three-run home run in the first inning. Caleb Joseph added a two-run blast in the fourth. Overall, the right-hander allowed nine hits and two walks while striking out only one. It ranks as Chavez's poorest start of the year, but he still holds a 3.88 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 100/33 K/BB ratio over 118 1/3 innings. He'll toe the rubber at home against the Astros in his next outing.
Aug 4 - 12:58 AM

Tyler Wilson held the Athletics to two runs in 7 2/3 innings, earning a win in a spot start on Monday.

Wilson scattered six hits and a pair of walks with three strikeouts. He allowed a run in the fourth inning on an RBI single to Ike Davis, and the other on an RBI double from Stephen Vogt in the eighth. The right-hander has been effective in 24 2/3 innings in the majors this year, sporting a 2.19 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and a 7/5 K/BB ratio.
Aug 4 - 12:56 AM

Carson Smith did not have a particularly good ninth inning, but managed to close out an 8-7 win over the Rockies on Monday for his 10th save.

The Mariners entered with an 8-4 lead, but Tom Wilson and Rob Rasmussen each allowed a single before Smith was brought in. Smith, however, allowed a one-out, two-run double followed by an RBI single to make it an 8-7 game. After allowing another single, Smith recovered, striking out Michael McKenry, then getting Charlie Blackmon to fly out to end the game. The right-hander has struggled since being entrusted with the responsibility of closing out games in June. He's 10-for-12 in save chances overall with a 2.93 ERA and a 57/13 K/BB ratio over 43 innings.
Aug 4 - 12:33 AM

Felix Hernandez won his 13th game of the season, giving up four runs in 6 2/3 innings versus the Rockies on Monday.

Hernandez was coming off of a beating against the Diamondbacks in which he gave up 12 hits. He gave up 11 hits this time around, but the Rockies could only capitalize for four runs. He also walked one while striking out nine. Though Hernandez's numbers are down from last year's effort -- when he finished second in AL Cy Young Award balloting -- his 3.13 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 140/41 K/BB ratio in 143 2/3 innings are quite good nevertheless. He'll host the Rangers in his next start.
Aug 4 - 12:29 AM

Eddie Butler faltered in a loss to the Mariners on Monday, allowing seven runs in four innings.

He didn't have anything working on this particular evening, as the Mariners bashed three homers, including back-to-back solo taters by Kyle Seager and Nelson Cruz in the second inning. The lefty allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out two. Butler owns a poor 5.45 ERA on the year along with a 1.79 WHIP and a 38/37 K/BB ratio over 69 1/3 innings. He'll attempt to defeat the Nationals in a road start next.
Aug 4 - 12:24 AM

Charlie Blackmon registered four hits, including two doubles, in six at-bats on Monday as the Rockies were felled by the Mariners.

Blackmon doubled to lead off the bottom of the first and came around to score on a Jose Reyes single. He added an RBI double in the sixth inning. It's been another fine year for the outfielder, who's hitting .298/.366/.471 with 12 home runs, 44 RBI, 29 stolen bases, and 64 runs scored.
Aug 4 - 12:21 AM

Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, a solo home run, and three runs scored on Monday as the Mariners outlasted the Rockies.

Seager hit the first of back-to-back home runs with Nelson Cruz. He also scored runs in the first and seventh innings. The third baseman had been in a slump, batting .133 (4-for-30) in his previous seven games. Seager's numbers on the season are solid, hitting .270/.329/.447 with 16 home runs and 44 RBI.
Aug 4 - 12:19 AM

Nelson Cruz went 3-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run as the Mariners narrowly escaped with a win against the Rockies on Monday.

Cruz went back-to-back with Kyle Seager in the second inning, extending the Mariners' lead to 6-1. It's his 30th homer of the year, marking only the third time he's crossed the 30-homer threshold in 11 big league seasons. (He's hit 29 twice, though.) Cruz has also knocked in 66 runs while hitting .321/.385/.590.
Aug 4 - 12:16 AM

Brad Boxberger worked out of trouble to earn his 27th save as the Rays beat the White Sox 5-4 on Monday.

Boxberger allowed a leadoff single to Alexei Ramirez, who promptly stole second base. Adam LaRoche then hit a single to center field, but Ramirez was thrown out. Avisail Garcia then struck out, and Carlos Sanchez lined out to end the game. Boxberger moves to 27-for-29 in save chances with a 56/21 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings on the season.
