Miguel Cabrera goes deep for Tigers in win
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:19 pm ET) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 3 for 4 in Sunday's win over Cleveland. Cabrera drove in three runs, including a two-run home run in the sixth inning. 

Cabrera is now hitting .377 with three home runs and 13 RBI this season. 


Rangers' Tanner Scheppers still looking for a rhythm on the mound
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:18 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers wants to figure out why he's scuffling on the mound so dar this season. Scheppers spent Sunday watching tape of himself on the mound with pitching coach Mike Maddux to figure out just what is ailing him, according to MLB.com.

"I know I have to make adjustments," said Scheppers. "I'm beating myself up. The free bags are catching up to me. I need to trust myself and throw the ball over the plate."

Scheppers, who currently boasts an 11.25 ERA in four innings of work, has struggled since coming back from an early ankle injury to begin the year.
"I would be lying to you if I said I was exactly where I want to be," Scheppers said. "I'm not. It is about making adjustments. I understand I need to come in and get outs."
Manager Jeff Banister continues to have faith in Scheppers and will turn to him in the eighth inning set-up role.
"I still believe in Tanner and who he is," Banister said. "The guy is coming off a year where he was a starter, got hurt and then put into the bullpen. We'll continue to look at it and get him on a roll."

Phillies' Jonathan Papelbon records fourth save Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:17 pm ET) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon earned his fourth save of the season Sunday, surrendering a solo home run but protecting the lead in his team's 5-4 win over the Braves.

Papelbon was unavailable Friday due to an illness but was able to fill his regular role during Sunday's day game. He allowed two hits and issued one walk but was able to escape with just one earned run allowed on Alberto Callaspo's home run. Papelbon owns a 1.23 ERA and 7:1 K:BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings after surrendering his first run of the season Sunday.

Soria entered in the ninth, with the Tigers holding an 8-5 lead. He gave up a leadoff homer to David Murphy but retired the side without any further damage. 

The home run allowed was Soria's first since July 29 of last season. He has a 2.08 ERA this year.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:13 pm ET) Phillies pitcher Jerome Williams picked up a win Sunday, giving up three earned runs on eight hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 5-4 victory over the Braves.

Williams was knocked around a bit in the top of the first inning, as the Braves were able to plate two runs on a bases-loaded single by Jace Peterson, but he was largely able to keep them off the scoreboard from that point on. He has delivered a 3.80 ERA and 15:5 K:BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings across four starts. Williams is slated to face the Marlins in Miami Friday.
