Colby Lewis tossed quality start Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:31 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis tossed a quality start Thursday against the Yankees.

Lewis gave up three runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked three during the outing. Lewis started out well, tossing three scoreless innings to begin the game. He seemed to tire as the game progressed.

In the fourth, Lewis gave up a leadoff double to Brett Gardner. Gardner came around to score on a single, giving the Yankees a one-run lead. In the fifth, Lewis gave up two walks, a double and a sacrifice fly, giving up another two runs.

With the loss, Lewis dropped to 6-8 on the year. His next start will come against the Yankees. 


David Robertson Ks two, closes out Rangers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:29 pm ET) Yankees closer David Robertson worked his way around a walk and struck out two to close out a 4-2 victory over the Rangers on Thursday. Robertson has not allowed a run over his last seven innings of relief. He has converted 25 of 27 save opportunities, with a 2.39 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP over 37 2/3 innings of work this season.

Brandon McCarthy wins second straight with Yankees
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:25 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy continued to pitch well with his new club on Thursday, limiting the Rangers to only one run on four hits over six innings to improve to 5-10 on the season. The right-hander struck out five and walked two in 209 pitches, 74 for strikes.

McCarthy has won back-to-back decisions with his new team, and has allowed only two earned runs over that 12-inning span. McCarthy will look to make it three consecutive wins in a rematch against the Rangers in Arlington on Tuesday.

Willie Bloomquist heading to the disabled list
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:11 pm ET) Mariners infielder Willie Bloomquist has been placed on the disabled list Thursday.

The club has yet to announce Bloomquist's injury. Chris Taylor has been recalled from Triple-A in order to take Bloomquist's spot on the roster. 


Jesus Montero called up Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:06 pm ET) Mariners infielder Jesus Montero has been called up from Triple-A Thursday.

Montero received 14 at-bats in the majors this season before being sent down to the minors. At Triple-A, he's hit .310 over 303 at-bats. The team had an open roster spot after sending Taijuan Walker to the minors Wednesday.


Oscar Taveras could be headed back to minors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:05 pm ET) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak admitted if outfielder Oscar Taveras doesn't start to heat up offensively and see regular playing time, then the team might have to send him back to the minors, per MLB.com.

"He is still somebody that we view as a prospect, and at some point he's going to need to play more," Mozeliak said of Taveras. "Whether that is here or back in the minors, for his development, getting at-bats is important.

"At the major-league level, I understand that you have to try to go with the hot bat -- or in this case to try and get both guys going. It's not an easy task. As you can imagine, it's a fine balance between sitting and playing. Currently, it's not a great situation for either one. Hopefully, in the next week or two, it might find a way to be resolved. If not, there are obviously some answers to help create playing time."


Chris Taylor gets the call Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:04 pm ET) Mariners infielder Chris Taylor has been recalled from Triple-A Thursday.

Taylor was rumored to be getting the call early Thursday, but the team waited until the afternoon to make the move official. Taylor is hitting .328 in the minors. It's unclear what his role will be in the majors, but he could see a fair amount of playing time.


Taylor Jordan gets MRI for elbow injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:49 pm ET) Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan recently met with team physician Dr. Wiemi Douguih for a second opinion on the elbow injury that has kept him sidelined at Triple-A Syracuse since early June, according to The Washington Post.

"He had an MRI. The MRI is fine. We wanted to see, what’s the discomfort coming from?" general manager Mike Rizzo said.

Jordan had Tommy John surgery in 2011, but the team is confident he won't need the surgery this time.

"We’re not too worried about that," Rizzo said. "The doctors told me that’s not what they’re thinking about. They want to find out what it is. It’s more discomfort than anything else. We want to find out what it is so we can make him comfortable, so he can possibly help us down the road."


Ehire Adrianza a candidate to be placed on DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:32 pm ET) Giants infielder Ehire Adrianza re-strained his right hamstring Thursday against the Phillies and is a candidate to be placed on the disabled list, manager Bruce Bochy said.

Tim Hudson takes loss in low-scoring game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:29 pm ET) Giants starting pitcher Tim Hudson was charged with the loss Thursday at Philadelphia despite allowing just two unearned runs in six innings. Though, he didn't get much run support in a 2-1 loss because San Francisco hitters had a tough time against Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels, who struck out 10 in eight innings.

The Phillies went up 1-0 in the first inning on Marlon Byrd's one-out RBI single. Hudson was able to keep up with Hamels for most of the afternoon, but Philadelphia took the lead for good on Chase Utley's one-out RBI single in the fifth inning, which came two batters after Ben Revere got on base due to an error.

Hudson (8-7) allowed eight hits and two walks, while striking out six. He's suffered a loss in five of his last seven starts. The veteran pitcher will be back on the hill Tuesday against the Pirates.
