Twins SP Phil Hughes hits double-digit win total
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:04 am ET) Phil Hughes wasn't dominant, but he didn't have to be, as the Twins gave their starter plenty of offensive support in a victory Thursday. 

Hughes allowed five runs and 10 hits in his five innings of work, but it was enough to earn him his 10th victory of the season. He struck out five and didn't walk a batter for the second straight start. 

Hughes (10-6) has now won six straight decisions. 


Rangers' Ryan Rua legs out inside-the-park home run on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:04 am ET) Not exactly known for his speed, Rangers outfielder Ryan Rua showed off his wheels on Thursday. Rua raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run in the fourth inning of the 7-6 win over the Yankees.

The home run was Rua's fourth of the season, and it knotted the game up at 5-5. Rua went 2 for 3 in the game and has hit safely in five of his last six contests.


Twins OF Eddie Rosario drives in three, falls single short of cycle
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario had a big night Thursday, falling a single short of the cycle and driving in three runs in Minnesota's easy win over the Mariners. 

Rosario hit his fifth home run of the season in the first inning, doubled in the third inning and tripled in the fifth. He was robbed of the cycle in the eighth, when Mariners shortstop Brad Miller snagged his line drive. 

Rosario raised his average to .294 and now has 24 RBIs on the season. 


Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo struggles vs. Yankees on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) In what could have been his final start with the Rangers, right-hander Yovani Gallardo was not at his best against the Yankees on Thursday. Gallardo allowed five runs on eight hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out one, throwing 63 of his 103 pitches for strikes.

Gallardo left with a no-decision in this one, as the Rangers won 7-6 in walk-off fashion. He gave up three runs in the first inning, including a solo shot to Mark Teixeira. The Rangers tied the game in the bottom of the half, and even gave Gallardo the lead in the next inning.

But the veteran righty gave up a two-run home run to Brian McCann in the third inning. He left the game with the score tied 5-5. 

Gallardo, who has been the subject of several trade rumors leading up to the July 31 trade deadline, has gone 0-3 with a 5.46 ERA in six July starts.


Mariners option SS Chris Taylor to Triple-A
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Mariners announced after Thursday's game they have optioned shortstop Chris Taylor to Triple-A Tacoma, per the Tacoma News-Tribune. A corresponding move has not yet been made.

Taylor never found an offensive rhythm, hitting just .167 in 30 games.  


Yankees' CC Sabathia gives up three home runs in no-decision
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia struggled in his outing against the Rangers on Thursday. The big left-hander allowed five runs on nine hits over five innings. He walked one and struck out three, needing 80 pitches to get through five. He was left with a no-decision however, as he left the game with the score tied 5-5. The Rangers would win the game 7-6.

Sabathia was bitten by the longball in this one, as all five runs he allowed came on homers. Josh Hamilton's was the biggest blow, a three run shot in the very first inning. Shin-Soo Choo followed with a solo blast in the second, and then Ryan Rua knocked an inside-the-park home run in the fourth.

Sabathia has had a rough go of it so far in 2015. Over his last seven starts, the veteran is 1-1 with a 6.09 ERA. He has allowed nine home runs over that stretch as well. 

After his start, Sabathia went to a local hospital dealing with symptoms of dehydration. He is not expected to travel with the team to Chicago on Friday. It is not yet known if this will effect his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Red Sox.


Angels SP Matt Shoemaker gets no-decision after quality start
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Angels starter Matt Shoemaker went pitch-for-pitch with Astros ace Scott Kazmir on Thursday, but would leave with a no-decision in an eventual Los Angeles defeat. 

Shoemaker went seven strong innings, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out seven hitters. Over his last two starts, Shoemaker has struck out 17 batters. 

Shoemaker (5-7) has won just one of his last eight starts but has seen his ERA dip to 4.24.


Astros SP Scott Kazmir registers another solid start
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Astros starter Scott Kazmir kept up his impressive work since being traded to Houston, tossing 7 2/3 innings of shutout ball Thursday in a pitcher's duel. 

Kazmir has not allowed a run in 14 2/3 innings since joining the Astros, and was in control for much of the night. He allowed just three hits while striking out five and walking three. Kazmir threw 111 pitches.

Kazmir (6-5) has allowed just one earned run in five July starts to lower his ERA to 2.10. 


Anthony Rizzo gives Cubs the lead with three-run blast
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo homered for the second consecutive game on Thursday, as he went 3 for 4 with three RBI. 

Rizzo, who also doubled in the 5-2 win over the Brewers, launched his 18th home run--a go-ahead three-run shot--in the eighth inning, with the Cubs trailing 2-0. 


Cubs' Hector Rondon earns 14th save on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Cubs reliever Hector Rondon picked up his 14th save of the season in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Brewers. Rondon tossed a perfect ninth inning, needing just six pitches to dispose of the Brewers in order.

Rondon has registered a save in back-to-back games for the Cubs after going more than a month without one.
