D-Backs RP Josh Collmenter receives first save of season Tuesday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:22 am ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter tossed two scoreless innings to earn his first save of the season during Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Rockies.

Collmenter did not allow a run and only two hits during the appearance. He also struck out one batter.


Tigers RP Bruce Rondon rebounds to snag third save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:21 am ET) Brad Ausmus must either have a long leash or he is really desperate to finally find a dependable closer for his Tigers.

Maybe it's both, but he gave another chance Tuesday night in Kansas City to Bruce Rondon, who has been getting clobbered of late. This time, however, he came through with a scoreless ninth to earn his third save. The appearance was marred only by one walk.

Rondon arrived on the mound having allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks over his prevous 4 2/3 innings.


D-Backs SP Rubby De La Rosa earns win Tuesday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:17 am ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa earned a quality start and his 12th win of the season during Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Rockies.

De La Rosa allowed three runs on six hits over six innings of work. He also struck out three and did not walk a batter. One of his mistakes was giving up a solo home to Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning.

De La Rosa is 6-1 over his last nine outings.


Tigers SP Justin Verlander remains on fire in beating Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:15 am ET) Tigers rebounding right-hander Justin Verlander put together the worst performance in his last five starts Tuesday night in Kansas City. But that's not saying much - it was still pretty darn good.

Verlander, who was coming off a one-hitter, yielded two earned runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings with one walk and four whiffs. He raised his record to 2-4 in the process. The big blow was a Kendrys Morales home run in the fourth inning.

He has given up a mere three runs over his last 35 2/3 innings to lower his ERA to 3.40 as he continues to show flashes of the Verlander of old.


Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick fails to go five innings in Tuesday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:13 am ET) Rockies pitcher Kyle Kendrick only last four innings before being removed from Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the D-Backs.

Kendrick allowed one run on three hits. He also struck out two and walked two. Tuesday was his first start after being activated from the disabled list due to shoulder inflammation.

Kendrick is 1-2 in his last three outings.


Slumping Royals SP Johnny Cueto clawed by Tigers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:09 am ET) The Royals acquired Johnny Cueto to be their ace. Now if he can only start living up to those expectations.

Cueto did not rise to the occasion Tuesday against visiting Detroit. He surrendered four runs on nine hits in six innings with no walks and two strikeouts, which tied a season-low.

The big blows against him were RBI singles by Miguel Cabrera, Jose Iglesias and Ian Kinsler. He did manage to retire the last seven batters he faced, but he was saddled with his fourth loss in six decisions since arriving in Kansas City.

Cueto has gone south since pitching well in his first four starts. He has given up 16 runs on 30 hits in his last 19 innings.


Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani takes no-decision in Tuesday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:03 am ET) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani did not pitch well enough to earn a quality start or a win during Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Cubs.

DeSclafani allowed three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings. He also struck out seven and walked two. His ERA now stands at 3.87.

DeSclafani is winless in his last five outings.


Cubs RP Hector Rondon earns save Tuesday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2015) Cubs pitcher Hector Rondon tossed a perfect ninth inning to shut the door on the Reds on Tuesday.

Rondon entered in the ninth with a one-run lead and recorded the final three outs to earn his 25th save of the season.


Twins closer Glen Perkins struggles before nailing down save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2015) Paul Molitor recently claimed that Twins veteran Glen Perkins would not return to the closer role until he had fully recovered from the back spasms that had been plaguing him.

Consider Perkins fully recovered.

The southpaw did not, however, pitch like it. He allowed one run on three hits in the ninth to the White Sox in securing his 32nd save. He induced Jose Abreu to fly out to end it.


Cubs SP Dan Haren receives no-decision in Tuesday's win
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2015) Cubs pitcher Dan Haren did not last long enough to receive a win during Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Reds.

Haren allowed two runs on four hits over five innings. One of the runs came in the first when Joey Votto hit a solo home run.

Haren has not received a win in his last four starts and is 1-2 in six outings for the Cubs.
