Hamstring problem keeps Marwin Gonzalez out Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:18 am ET) A tight hamstring has prevented Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez from taking his place in the lineup for a day game Wednesday after a night game. He is sidelined against Oakland.

Gonzalez homered in the Tuesday loss.


Ben Zobrist homers, doubles in two runs
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:14 am ET) Rays infielder Ben Zobrist played a big part in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Brewers.

Zobrist went 2 for 4 in the win, and drove in the first two runs for the Rays in the win. He brought the first around on a sixth-inning solo home run, and then drove in another with a double in the eighth.

Zobrist is hitting .271/.361/.421 with nine home runs and 31 RBI in 93 at-bats. 


Ned Yost: Billy Butler is our DH if he continues to hit
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:13 am ET) Royals designated hitter Billy Butler is still under the miscroscope despite his recent surge. He must keep hitting to remain a starter.

"If Billy keeps hitting, Billy's going to DH," Ned Yost told the Kansas City Star.

Butler played the role of hero in the weekend series against Cleveland with six hits, including two home runs, and five RBI to help his team win three of four. But he took the collar Tuesday night.


Grady Sizemore slugs first homer for Phillies
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:06 am ET) The resurgence of Grady Sizemore continued Tuesday, as the Phillies' outfielder hit his first home run for the team in a 6-0 win over the Mets.

Sizemore had just one hit in the win, as he went 1 for 4 with one run driven in and one scored from the home run. He is hitting .314/.352/.451 in 51 at-bats since joining the Phillies, and has three home runs in 236 at-bats overall on the season. 


Chase Utley slugs grand slam in victory
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:02 am ET) Phillies infielder Chase Utley had just one hit Tuesday, but he made it count in a 6-0 win over the Mets.  

Utley went 1 for 4 in the win, and made his presence felt with his seventh inning grand slam. The home run is Utley's ninth of the season, but first since July 9. He is hitting .291/.353/.429 on the season. 


Freddie Freeman blasts off in loss to Dodgers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:02 am ET) First baseman Freddie Freeman certainly can't be blamed for his team's loss Tuesday night to the host Dodgers.

Freeman gave his team a brief lead with a two-run homer in the third inning. He added a single and walk to push his on-base percentage on the year to a fine .376.


Matt Kemp ends home run drought with two on Tuesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:59 am ET) Dodgers right fielder Matt Kemp jacked up his trade value a bit with a renaissance performance Tuesday night against the Braves.

Kemp smashed his first two home runs since June 25 - two-run jobs in the second and seventh innings. He added a single to improve his stat line to .282/.347./.453. He has 14 hits in his last 31 at-bats with nine RBI in eight games.


Jimmy Rollins homers, scores twice in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:56 am ET) Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins made an impact Tuesday, in a 6-0 win over the Mets.

Rollins reached base twice and scored each time, and he did all the work on one of them. He slugged a solo home run in the third inning, and then scored following a walk in the seventh, finishing 1 for 4 in the win.

Rollins' overall average has tumbled all the way to .239 during the month of July, but he has remained productive while hitting six of his 14 home runs so far in the month. 


Michael Morse mashes 15th homer in loss to Pittsburgh
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:54 am ET) Left fielder Michael Morse prevented the Giants from being shut out Tuesday night against Pittsburgh. His solo home run in the second inning gave his team its only run.

Morse, who now has 15 home runs on the year, has hit safely in five of his last six games, but has not achieved a multi-hit game since July 21.


Josh Harrison stays on home run roll in win over Giants
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) Pirates leadoff hitter Josh Harrison continued to sizzle Tuesday night with his third straight game with a home run.

Harrison blasted off to begin the game against San Francisco and added a walk to sweeten his stat line on the season to .299/.338/.469. He is 7 for 12 in his last three games.
