Rockies' Nick Hundley hits game-tying home run in loss Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:01 am ET) Rockies catcher Nick Hundley went 2 for 5 with a single and two RBI, including a solo home run in Thursday's 9-8 loss to the Cardinals. Hundley launched his eighth home run in the sixth inning to tie the game at 6-6. 

Hundley has been swinging the bat well over the past two weeks or so. In his last 14 games, the backstop is hitting .358 with two home runs and nine RBI. 


Pirates outright OF Gorkys Hernandez to Triple-A
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(1:00 am ET) The Pirats announced late Thursday they have outrighted outfielder Gorkys Hernandez to Triple-A Indianapolis, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Hernandez had been on a rehab assignment at Triple-A. He was hitless in five at-bats with the Pirates in his first MLB action since 2012 before being put on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. 


A's RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) could be nearing rehab
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:57 am ET) Athletics reliever Sean Doolittle threw from a mound on Thursday, the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list for a second time at the end of May. 

Doolittle made 26 pitches, mixing in all of his pitches on Thursday.

"That's the best bullpen I've seen him throw," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "I think he feels psychologically a little bit better about letting it go. It seemed to me that he was guarding it a little bit more so the last time. He definitely was not this time. It seemed like there was a lot more whip."

The left-hander, who is out with a strained left shoulder, is expected to have another bullpen session on Saturday. If all goes well, he could go out on a rehab assignment shortly thereafter. 


Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) begins rehab assignment
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:50 am ET) Rangers left-hander Derek Holland began his minor-league rehab assignment, starting the game for Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday. Holland allowed two runs on two hits over 1 2/3 innings, suffering the loss. He walked one and struck out three, throwing 22 of his 39 pitches for strikes.

Holland has made one start all year for the Rangers, coming all the way back in early April. He has been sidelined ever since with a shoulder injury. Holland is currently expected to make two more starts before returning to the Rangers' rotation.


Indians 1B Carlos Santana hits big HR in tight victory
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:44 am ET) Indians first baseman Carlos Santana cracked a first-inning home run to propel Cleveland to a 3-1 victory on Thursday, his 12th homer of the season. 

Santana connected off A's starter Chris Bassitt to dead center, driving in Michael Brantley to give the Indians a 3-0 lead. 

Santana has now hit safely in eight of his last 10 games to raise his average to .227. 


Athletics SP Chris Bassitt remains winless
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:39 am ET) Athletics starter Chris Bassitt had a shaky first inning, allowing three runs, and despite pitching well for the remainder of his outing, wound up on the losing end of a 3-1 defeat Thursday.

Bassitt went seven innings, scattering six hits while striking out six and walking just one in what was the best of his five starts this season. However, Bassitt's record dropped to 0-4.


Cardinals' Matt Carpenter has monster night at the plate vs. Rockies
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:35 am ET) Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter had a strong night at the plate on Thursday. Carpenter went 4 for 5 with a double, four RBI and four runs scored in the 9-8 win over the Rockies.

Carpenter also knocked a pair of home runs off starter Chris Rusin, including a three-run shot in the second inning. The two longballs give Carpenter 12 on the season.

Over his last 10 games, Carpenter is now batting .297 with three homers and seven RBI.


Indians SP Carlos Carrasco pitches complete game in win
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:33 am ET) Carlos Carrasco was dominant for the Indians on Thursday, pitching a complete-game two-hitter as Cleveland earned a 3-1 win over the Athletics. 

Carrasco allowed a first-inning RBI double, but that was just about it, as he wound up striking out seven hitters while walking just one. Carrasco only needed 103 pitches to spin his gem, using 14 ground-ball outs to power through the Oakland lineup. 

It is Carrasco's first complete game of the season and the fourth of his career. He improves to 11-8 on the season, fourth-most wins in the AL. 


Tigers' Yoenis Cespedes homers, drives in three on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:30 am ET) Surrounded by trade rumors, Tigers left fielder Yoenis Cespedes went 3 for 5 with two singles and a two-run home run in Thursday's 9-8 win over the Orioles. 

Cespedes belted his 18th home run of the season with two outs in the fourth to cap a five-run inning for Detroit. 

Cespedes, who could be dealt prior to Friday's 4pm trade dealine, is batting .325 with five home runs and nine RBI over his last 10 games.


Giants acquire SP Mike Leake from Reds for two minor leaguers
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:24 am ET) The Giants have acquired right-hander Mike Leake from the Reds, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Leake had been solid in the Reds' rotation this year, going 9-5 with a 3.56 ERA. He has been even better here in July, as he posted a 1.25 ERA in five starts this month. 

The Giants have officially announced the trade. They are sending two minor leaguers, right-hander Keury Meila and first baseman Adam Duvall, to the Reds in exchange for Leake.
