Rays pitcher Chris Archer strikes out nine in losing effort Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:01 pm ET) Rays pitcher Chris Archer allowed just one unearned run on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings of work in Tampa Bay's 1-0 loss to the Red Sox Tuesday.

Archer's only blemish came in the third inning when he put two men out for Dustin Pedroia. Archer allowed Pedroia to reach safely on a fielder's choice, but the run scored on a throwing error by Ryan Brett.

Archer added nine strikeouts and just one walk in his 106 pitches, 72 going for strikes, keeping his ERA at a lowly 1.07 in four starts. He will look to get back in the win column Sunday against the Blue Jays.


Red Sox pitcher Wade Miley earns first win of the year Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:01 pm ET) Red Sox pitcher Wade Miley tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings in Boston's 1-0 win over the Rays Tuesday. Miley scattered three hits with four walks and three strikeouts in his outing.

He ran into a jam in the sixth after walking two consecutive batters to load the bases for Desmond Jennings with two outs before getting the hook. Alexi Ogando came on and finished off the inning, getting Jennings to groundout to short.

Miley, now 1-1 on the year, lowered his ERA to 6.08 in three starts. He will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Orioles.

Indians manager Terry Francona will stick with Cody Allen as closer
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:18 pm ET) Indians manager Terry Frnacona knows Monday wasn't what he expected from his closer Cody Allen, but he will continue to gut it out with him, according to Cleveland.com.

"The last thing we want is to have chaos at the end of the bullpen," said manager Terry Francona. "That doesn't help anybody."

Allen gave up four runs in the ninth inning Monday with Cleveland up 3-0 after seven scoreless from starter Trevor Bauer.

"Cody is about as trustworthy and dependable as anyone we have," said Francona. "Monday night wasn't a lot of fun, but if there's anybody we believe in, he's right at the top of the list.

"I hope so bad that we have a lead tonight and we can give it back to him. When you believe in somebody that much, some nights hurt. . . I think we believe in him so much, he'll be OK."

Allen is 0-2 this season with an 18.00 ERA and has three saves in four opportunities.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:01 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Sean Nolin is expected to head to Triple-A Nashville to begin his rehab assignment Wednesday after throwing a bullpen session, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Nolin, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a hernia, is scheduled to throw a bullpen session as well as Wednesday and if everything goes well, he will head to Nashville. Nolin has appeared in just two games in the last two seasons, allowing seven runs in 2 1/3 innings of work.
