Sonny Gray held the Angels to two runs over six innings Sunday in a no-decision.

Anaheim won the game in the bottom of the ninth inning on a walkoff sac fly by Jefry Marte. Gray did his part, yielding just five singles, a double, and one walk while whiffing three. He continues to lower his inflated season ERA, from 5.20 to 5.03 in this one. Look for the right-hander to keep it rolling next time out against the Pirates.

Martin Perez held the Red Sox to one run over six innings Sunday in the Rangers' 6-2 win.

Texas had a three-run lead after the first inning and Perez went into cruise control from there, scattering six hits and two walks across six solid frames. The one run he gave up came on a Bryce Brentz solo shot in the top of the sixth. Perez will carry a 7-4 record and 3.44 ERA into his next start on the road against the Twins.

Clay Buchholz surrendered five runs -- four earned -- over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Rangers.

Texas jumped all over Buchholz in the bottom of the first inning, scoring three runs on five singles and two walks. Prince Fielder then slugged a two-run shot in the bottom of the sixth and Buchholz was removed two batters later. The right-hander is now 3-8 with a 5.90 season ERA. He might be headed back to the bullpen.

Adonis Garcia went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Mets.

The Braves held just a 1-0 lead heading into the eighth inning, but opened up some much-needed breathing room with a four-run frame. The big blow came courtesy of Garcia, who provided in the clutch when he launched a three-run homer off reliever Logan Verrett. For the season, the 31-year-old third baseman is slashing .253/.296/.356 with five homers and 21 RBI over 194 at-bats. He can be safely avoided for fantasy purposes.

Wilmer Flores (hand) went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

While Flores was dealing with a left hand contusion entering the weekend series, he has played in-full during each of the last two games. On Sunday, he was the only Mets batter to finish with more than one hit. His ninth-inning RBI single drew the team to within 5-2, but that would be the last of the game's scoring. With a .240/.309/.368 triple-slash over 125 at-bats, Flores does not make for any sort of legitimate fantasy option.

Bud Norris was superb in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Mets, hurling seven innings of shutout ball.

The eight strikeouts marked a season-high for Norris. He scattered four hits and did not walk a batter over his seven innings of work. Since entering the starting rotation at the beginning of June, the 31-year-old right-hander has allowed more than two runs just once in five starts (he allowed three in the outlier). He will look to continue this nice roll in a home showdown with the Marlins next time he toes the rubber.

Bartolo Colon (thumb) pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Braves, allowing one run on six hits over seven innings.

Colon was hit with a comebacker off the right thumb in his last start, but he showed no ill-effect from that injury on Sunday. The only run to score against the 43-year-old right-hander came home via a first-inning solo homer off the bat of Freddie Freeman. Assuming the thumb is good-to-go moving forward, Colon will carry a 2.86 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 58/14 K/BB ratio (88 innings) into a home start against the Cubs next time out.

Tanner Roark fired seven shutout innings Sunday in the Nationals' 3-2 defeat of the Brewers.

Roark scattered seven hits -- two doubles, five singles -- and one walk across his seven scoreless frames. He struck out seven. The 29-year-old right-hander has been a nice surprise for the Nationals this season, now with a 2.96 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 89/32 K/BB ratio in 100 1/3 innings. He finished with a 4.38 ERA in 2015. Next is a home start versus the Reds.

Chris Davis connected for a first-inning grand slam in Sunday's 12-5 win over the Rays.

Davis launched his granny off of Rays starter Drew Smyly in the first inning. He would later add a single to finish 2-for-4. The slugger is working to a .240/.355/.498 triple-slash with 18 homers and an even 50 RBI over 267 at-bats. It will take a nice second-half power push to reach the 47 dingers he hit in 2015.
Jun 26 - 5:35 PM

Shawn Kelley allowed a run in 1 1/3 innings Sunday but was able to grab his third save.

Kelley yielded a two-out homer to Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado in the bottom of the ninth and Jonathan Villar tripled a few pitches later, but Scooter Gennett flied out to Jayson Werth to end it. Kelley has struggled a bit as the Nationals' fill-in closer, but he's definitely the guy to own until Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) returns from the disabled list.
Jun 26 - 5:32 PM

Pirates designated RHP Curtis Partch for assignment.

That move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Chad Kuhl who is starting for the Pirates on Sunday. Partch struggled in his lone appearance with the big league club this season, allowing three runs on his inning of work. He's expected to pass through waivers and continue to function as bullpen depth at Triple-A.
Jun 26 - 5:32 PM

Oswaldo Arcia went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a two-run double in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Arcia came over from the Twins in a trade on Friday. He failed to pick up a hit in his first three at-bats with his new club, but came through in a big way on Sunday. He notched a solo home run in the fourth inning and a two-run double in the fifth to finish with three RBI. In 103 at-bats with the Twins prior to the trade, the 25-year-old outfielder was hitting just .214/.289/.369 with four homers and 12 RBI. He is young enough and talented enough that his career shouldn't be considered a lost cause yet, though it is off to a rocky enough start.
Jun 26 - 5:29 PM

Jimmy Nelson threw five innings of shutout ball Sunday in the Brewers' loss to the Nationals.

He was lifted at 91 pitches and the Milwaukee bullpen let Washington take the lead (and an eventual 3-2 win). Nelson yielded just one hit -- initially called an error, but later ruled a single for Ben Revere. The 27-year-old right-hander has an impressive 3.60 ERA with 70 strikeouts in 95 innings this season. He struck out five on Sunday without issuing a walk. A road date with the Cardinals is next.
Jun 26 - 5:29 PM

Tyler Wilson pitched poorly in Sunday's win over the Rays, allowing five runs on 10 hits over five innings.

Wilson struck out one and walked two in the tough outing. He also surrendered solo homers to Desmond Jennings and Oswaldo Arcia in the second and fourth innings, respectively. For the season, Wilson's 4.50 ERA and 1.29 WHIP are about as pedestrian as they come. A road start against the Mariners shows next on his schedule.
Jun 26 - 5:23 PM

Drew Smyly crashed and burned in Sunday's loss to the Orioles, yielding eight runs on 10 hits over five innings.

Ouch. Smyly did strike out six against just one walk, but it was a disappointing outing just about any other way you slice it. Chris Davis set the tone well enough in the first inning, launching a grand slam off the 27-year-old southpaw. The O's would strike for additional singular runs in the second and third innings before scoring a pair in the fifth to finish off Smyly's disappointing line. The terrifying performance pushed his ERA from 4.78 to 5.32. He will try to rebound in a home start against the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.
