Marlins 3B Martin Prado reaches base four times on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:05 pm ET) Marlins third baseman Martin Prado had himself a perfect night at the plate in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Nationals. Prado went 3 for 3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in the game.

All three hits were singles for Prado, who is batting .333 in 11 games since returning from the disabled list on July 17.


Astros' Brad Peacock likely done for the season
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:05 pm ET) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock is likely done for the year, general manager Jeff Luhnow said on Tuesday. 

"Peacock we're still waiting," Luhnow said, per the Houston Chronicle. "I'm not optimistic he's going to make it back any time soon and we still don't know what the right course of action is. There's a couple different doctors working on it. There's another doctor appointment coming up. We'll have to figure out what the best path is for him, but unfortunately it looks like potentially a lost year for him."

Peacock has made one appearance this year. He's suffering from a left intercostal strain. 


Marlins 2B Dee Gordon goes 2 for 3 in return from DL
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:03 pm ET) Fresh off of the disabled list, Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon went right back to making an impact on the basepaths in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Nationals. Gordon went 2 for 3 with a triple and a sacrifice bunt.

He also scored a run and continues to lead the league in hits with 124, despite missing more than two weeks with a thumb injury. Gordon is batting .294 over his past nine games.


Red-hot Joey Votto launches three-run home run in Reds' win
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:58 pm ET) Reds first baseman Joey Votto provided the only significant offense of the game in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals. Votto launched a three-run home run in the sixth inning off Jaime Garcia to break a scoreless tie.

Votto reached base safely in all four plate-appearances on Tuesday, going 3 for 3 with a walk. He drove in three runs and scored two, recording his 19th home run and his 19th double of the season. 

Votto has been on fire at the plate recently, batting a ridiculous .595 with three homers and eight RBI over his past 11 games. Perhaps just as impressive is the fact that he has struck out just once--compared to 12 walks--in those 11 contests.


Mariners' Charlie Furbush throws off mound
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:57 pm ET) Mariners pitcher Charlie Furbush returned to the mound on Tuesday. Furbush is on the disabled list with a biceps injury. 

Furbush tested the injury with his first throwing session off a mound since suffering the injury on July 7. 

"Just 10 pitches," Furbush said, per the News Tribune. "This was a, 'Let's see what's happening. Let's see where I am.' Honestly, it was encouraging. It had been a while, but it felt pretty good."

Furbush will throw again on Thursday.


Cardinals' Jaime Garcia posts quality start in first game back off DL
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:55 pm ET) Making his first start since June 24, Cardinals right-hander Jaime Garcia posted a quality start on Tuesday against the Reds. It was all for naught however, as the Cardinals shutout the Reds 4-0. 

Garcia, who missed a month due to a groin injury, allowed three runs on four hits over six innings on Tuesday. He walked two and struck out five, throwing 51 of 80 pitches for strikes. 

Garcia (3-4, 2.00 ERA) crusied through the first five innings, keeping the Reds off the board. But he made his only mistake in the sixth inning, when he served up a three-run home run to Joey Votto, accounting for all of the runs scored against Garcia. 

The veteran right-hander has made eight starts this season and has not allowed more than three runs in any of them. 


Reds SP Mike Leake fires eight shutout innings in win Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:48 pm ET) Reds starter Mike Leake was dominant once again, as he blanked the Cardinals over eight innings in a 4-0 win on Tuesday. Leake allowed four hits and a walk while striking out three. He needed 95 pitches to get through the eighth, throwing 61 of them for strikes.

Leake (9-5) was rolling from the word go, as he retired 14 of the first 15 batters to face him. No runner got to third base against Leake, who dropped his ERA to 3.56 with the impressive outing.

The right-hander was stellar in the month of July, going 4-1 with a sterling 1.25 ERA in five starts. Several scouts were said to have been in attendance during the game, as Leake has been the subject of several trade rumors with the July 31 trade deadline swiftly approaching.


Rays' Curt Casali homers twice for second straight day
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:41 pm ET) Rays catcher Curt Casali went 3 for 4 with two home runs in Tuesday's win over Detroit. 

Casali became the second rookie catcher in MLB history to have back-to-back games with multiple home runs. Casali also went deep twice on Monday. 

The Mariners' Kenji Johjima also had back-to-back multi homer games in 2006. 


Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez delivers quality start in win on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:41 pm ET) Starter Ubaldo Jimenez picked up his eight win of the season, as the Orioles downed the Braves 7-3 on Tuesday. Jimenez allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings. He walked three and struck out three, throwing 62 of his 106 pitches for strikes.

Jimenez (8-6) lowered his ERA to 3.73 with the fine outing. He allowed a first-inning two-run home run to Freddie Freeman for his only mistake of the evening. After that, he was strong, retiring 10 of the final 11 batters he faced.

This was a nice comeback for Jimenez, who had allowed 14 runs in seven innings over his previous two starts.


Rays' Jake Odorizzi evens record at 6-6 with win
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:37 pm ET) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi won for the first time since July 11, improving to 6-6 on the year, Tuesday against Detroit. 

Odorizzi allowed one run, the third time in five outings that he's surrendered zero or one runs. He struck out eight, his most since April 18, and gave up one run over six innings.
