Red Sox's Wade Miley tosses eight one-run innings in win Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:59 pm ET) Red Sox pitcher Wade Miley earned a win on Sunday, giving up one earned run on just four hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out two in his team's 6-1 victory over the Angels.

Miley (4-4) needed just 97 pitches to complete eight innings, limiting the Angels to just an RBI double in the sixth. He's managed three straight quality starts after an up-and-down April.

Miley owns a 4.47 ERA and 31:18 K:BB ratio in 50 1/3 innings. His next start will come Friday against the Rangers on the road.


Mariners reliever Carson Smith earning role as setup man
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:58 pm ET) Mariners relief pitcher Carson Smith doesn't have a defined role out of the bullpen, but it is becoming more and more clear by the game, according to The News Tribune.

Smith was called upon Friday and Saturday in the eighth inning to setup for closer Fernando Rodney. He did not allow a run in either inning, lowering his ERA to 0.90 in 20 innings of work.

"He's done a tremendous job for us," manager Lloyd McClendon said, "but we've got to be careful. We've got to be sure we don't overuse him, but he's got a bright future. That sinker is special.

"He's got a nice slider. More than anything, he's got great makeup. I think he's built for it."


Angels' Hector Santiago strikes out six in loss vs. Red Sox
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:55 pm ET) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago took the loss on Sunday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Red Sox.

Santiago (3-3) threw a whopping 124 pitches in the outing. He gave up a two-run home run in the second inning but limited the Red Sox to just an RBI sacrifice fly before his exit to earn a quality start.

Santiago owns a 2.47 ERA and 50:22 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers on Friday.


Braves' Jason Grilli strikes out three, earns 13th save
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:51 pm ET) Braves closer Jason Grilli pitched a scoreless ninth inning on Sunday to earn his 13th save in his team's 2-1 win over the Brewers.

Grilli struck out the first two batters he faced before issuing a walk, but he was able to strike out one more batter to slam the door on his team's win. He's rattled off three straight scoreless outings, but Sunday's three-strikeout game was his first since April 13. Grilli owns a 4.11 ERA and 23:7 K:BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings.


Royals catcher Salvador Perez dealing with leg injury
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:46 pm ET) Royals catcher Salvador Perez has been playing through an apparent leg injury for some time, manager Ned Yost said on Sunday per FOX Sports Kansas City.

Yost called it a slight groin injury, while Perez described it as a tight left hamstring. He was given the final inning of Sunday's game off as a precaution. He went 1 for 3 with an RBI in the game and is now hitting .306 with 24 RBI on the season.


Braves' Mike Foltynewicz strikes out seven in win vs. Brewers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:45 pm ET) Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz earned a win on Sunday, allowing one earned run on just three hits and one walk while striking out seven in his team's 2-1 victory over the Brewers.

Foltynewicz (3-1) delivered the best start of his young career on Sunday, limiting the damage to a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. It was his fourth straight start with seven strikeouts and his second straight outing with only one free pass.

Foltynewicz owns a 4.25 ERA and 30:12 K:BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Giants on Friday.


Brewers' Jimmy Nelson walks five in loss vs. Braves
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:40 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson took a loss on Sunday, allowing two earned runs on five hits and five walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 2-1 defeat against the Braves.

Despite his wildness, Nelson (2-5) was able to string together five scoreless innings before the Braves took a 2-0 lead in the sixth. It's the second time this season he's walked five batters in a game and his second straight start with at least four walks.

Nelson owns a 3.67 ERA and 47:23 K:BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Diamondbacks at home on Saturday.


Rangers don't plan on moving Delino DeShields to second base
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:40 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Delino DeShields appears to be locked into his position, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

DeShields was rumored to be moving to the infield to play second base, but manager Jeff Banister said Sunday he will remain in the outfield and likely platoon in center with Leonys Martin.

DeShields played second base in the minors for three seasons, but hasn't done so since 2013. He is hitting .271 with 10 RBI in 70 at-bats this season.


Angels pitcher Cam Bedrosian knocked around in first appearance
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:31 pm ET) Angels pitcher Cam Bedrosian didn't receive a warm welcome to the majors on Sunday. Bedrosian, who was called up to replace the injured Mike Morin, allowed three runs on four hits in just 1/3 of an inning in Los Angeles' 6-1 loss to the Red Sox.

"Had to give him the ball and hopefully give him a chance to get his feet on the ground and get a good inning," manager Mike Scioscia said to the Orange County Register. "The stuff looked good but he couldn't command it enough to be effective."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:30 pm ET) The Mets recalled infielder Danny Muno from Triple-A Las Vegas after Sunday's game and optioned catcher Johnny Monell to the same club.

Muno, who went 1 for 6 in four games with the Mets in April, has hit .280/.354/.400 with one home run, 12 RBI and three stolen bases in 100 at-bats with Las Vegas. Monell was 1 for 16 with a double in his stint with the Mets and returns to a .397/.455/.638 line with four home runs and 15 RBI in 58 at-bats with Las Vegas.
