Rockies 1B Justin Morneau remains out, unlikely to travel with team
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11:54 pm ET) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau remains on the disabled list while dealing with concussion-like symptoms and is unlikely to travel with the team for their upcoming six-gane road trip this week, according to the Denver Post.

Morneau has been out since May 14 with the injury and is hitting .290 with nine RBI in 100 at-bats this season. 


RP Shawn Tolleson picks up third save for Rangers
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:50 pm ET) Shawn Tolleson continued to perform well in his new role as Rangers closer, striking out the side in the ninth inning to preserve Texas' 5-2 triumph over the Yankees on Sunday. 

Tolleson only needed 13 pitches to power through the Yankees lineup and pick up his third save since being installed as co-closer with Ross Ohlendorf since Neftali Perez was removed from the position. 


2B Adam Rosales' homer powers Rangers to sweep
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:42 pm ET) Second baseman Adam Rosales may be the Rangers' No. 9 hitter, but Sunday he provided the big hit in Texas' 5-2 victory over the Yankees with his third home run of the season. 

Rosales connected off Yankees starter Chris Capuano with two outs in the second inning to give Texas a 3-2 advantage, a lead that would stand up the rest of the way. Rosales finished 2-for-3 to lift his average to .214. 

Rosales now has five hits and three RBIs in his last three games.


SP Yovani Gallardo gets back on track for Rangers
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:35 pm ET) One start after allowing a season-high 10 hits, Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo found his stride and picked up his fourth victory of the year as Texas defeated the Yankees 5-2 on Sunday. 

Gallardo went six innings, allowing just four hits and two earned runs. More importantly, he walked just one batter while striking out six to pick up his second win in his last seven shots. 

Gallardo was able to induce nine ground ball outs and keep the Yankees offense in check to lower his ERA to 4.13. 


Yankees pitcher Chris Capuano roughed up in start on Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11:33 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Chris Capuano allowed three runs, two earned, on eight hitsin 4 1/3 innings on Sunday. Capuano struck out four and did not allow a walk, but New York fell to the Rangers 5-2.

Capuano had issues in the first two innings when after allowing a single, he surrendered an RBI double to Prince Fielder in the first. Then in the second, Capuano gave up a two-run blast to Adam Rosales. He was pulled in the fifth after allowing back-to-back singles. 

Capuano, now 0-2, has struggled in his first two starts of the year, allowing seven runs in 7 1/3 innings. He will look to get back on track Friday against the Athletics. 


Nationals pitcher Doug Fister still not throwing yet
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:18 pm ET) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister was in attendance for Sunday's game against the Phillies, but is yet to begin throwing, according to MLB.com.

Fister, who is currently on the 15-day DL with right forearm tightness, hopes to start the process soon.

"It's kind of a slow process," Fister said. "The process of getting complete game ready is going to be a little bit, but I'm making strides every day."

Fister is 2-2 with a 4.31 ERA in seven starts this season.

"It's been nagging me a little bit, the tightness," Fister said. "It has not allowed me to completely pitch to full capacity. … But that San Diego start really fired it up real tight."


Giants' Tim Hudson hit hard in defeat
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:37 pm ET) Veteran starter Tim Hudson had his worst outing of the season Sunday, lasting just 3 2/3 innings in the Giants' 11-2 loss to the Rockies. 

Hudson was hit hard early and often, allowing a season-high eight earned runs on six hits, including seven of the eight runs Colorado scored in the decisive fourth inning. 

Hudson saw his ERA rocket to 5.04 after the rough start as he fell to 2-4 on the season. 


Rockies SP Chad Bettis sparkles in victory
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:31 pm ET) Rockies starter Chad Bettis nearly went the distance but did more than enough in his 8 1/3 innings of work as Colorado cruised to an 11-2 triumph over the Giants on Sunday. 

Bettis picked up his first win of the season in just his third start. He allowed two runs on six hits and struck out seven, marking his best outing for the Rockies. 

Bettis picked up his first MLB victory since Sept. 16, 2013, when he earned a win during a relief appearance. 


Giants C Buster Posey extends hit streak to 16 games
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:22 pm ET) There weren't many bright spots in the Giants' 11-2 loss to the Rockies on Sunday, but one was that catcher Buster Posey extended his hitting streak to 16 games. 

Posey waited until the ninth inning to keep his streak alive, singling to right field to finish 1-for-3 on the evening. Posey's career-high hit streak remains 21 games, which he accomplished in 2010. 

The catcher is hitting .310/.382/.468 on the season. 


3B Nolan Arenado's huge day fuels Rockies in romp
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:15 pm ET) Third baseman Nolan Arenado helped spark the Rockies' offense to a big performance against the Giants, as he went 4-for-5 with 4 RBIs in Colorado's 11-2 victory Sunday. 

Arenado scored the Rockies' first two runs and then put the capper on Colorado's eight-run fourth inning with a three-run homer, his eighth of the season. 

Arenado fell just a double short of the cycle, as he hit his first triple of the season. All four of Arenado's RBIs came with two outs, as he lifted his average to .275 on the season.
