Royals new SP Kris Medlen rides run support to another win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:51 pm ET) Kris Medlen hasn't been lights-out since joining the Royals rotation, but the offense continued to provide plenty of runs Saturday in Tampa Bay and he performed well enough to win his second straight start.

Medlen allowed three runs on four hits in 5 1/3 innings to raise his record on the year to 3-0. He walked two and whiffed five.

The right-hander struggled only in the fourth, when an RBI single by Asdrubal Cabrera and two-run homer by Kevin Kiermaier turned a 2-0 lead into a 3-2 deficit.

Medlen has given up six runs in 11 1/3 innings in his two starts, but the result both times has been a win.


Cardinals SP Lance Lynn claims he'll be fine for next start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8:24 pm ET) Cardinals starter Lance Lynn has all but declared himself good to go for his next outing, which is scheduled for Friday against Pittsburgh.

Lynn left the game Saturday night with a mild ankle sprain.

"As long as I can get up and walk I'll be able to pitch next time out," he told MLB.com. "I'm not worried about it."


Report: Mets acquire RP Addison Reed from Diamondbacks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:37 pm ET) The Mets have added reliever Addison Reed in a trade from Arizona, pending a physical, per MLB.com.

Reed owns a 4.20 ERA on the year, but has performed better recently. He has allowed just two runs in his last 14 2/3 innings and has pitched scoreless ball in 11 of his last 12 appearances.


Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong collapses in fifth to take defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:28 pm ET) Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong continued to pitch his way out of the rotation Saturday against St. Louis.

Vogelsong cruised for four innings before falling apart in the fifth by giving up a triple, two singles and a walk. The bullpen completed the collapse as the Giants fell behind 4-0 and never recovered. He finished having allowed all four runs on seven hits with three walks and three strikeouts.

He has given up seven runs on 14 hits over his last eight innings to raise his ERA to 4.19.


Mets' Jacob deGrom strikes out 10 in loss to Red Sox
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7:27 pm ET) Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom was firing on all cylinders during his start against the Red Sox on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to earn a victory.

deGrom allowed two runs on four hits in six strong innings of work. He struck out 10 batters and allowed just two walks in the loss. At one point, deGrom had a no-hitter through four innings.

With the loss, deGrom dropped to 12-7 on the season with a 2.32 ERA.


Red Sox RP Jean Machi closes out ninth, earns third save
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7:24 pm ET) Red Sox reliever Jean Machi closed out the ninth inning of his team's win over the Mets on Saturday with ease.

Machi didn't allow a walk or a hit in the ninth as he put away New York in the 3-1 victory.

Machi lowered his ERA to 5.21 in 46 2/3 innings this season.


Red Sox SP Joe Kelly tosses gem against Mets
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7:22 pm ET) Red Sox starting pitcher Joe Kelly was very impressive during his start against the Mets on Saturday.

With the win, Kelly improved to 8-6 on the season with a 4.94 ERA.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Lynn made an off-balance throw to first on what resulted in an infield single.

He at least received the pleasure of raising his record to 11-8 after throwing seven shutout innings. Lynn allowed just six hits and two walks while whiffing two.

Lynn has given up only four runs in his last 19 2/3 innings after a disastrous outing against Pittsburgh.
