Lance Lynn spins seven scoreless innings vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn earned a win Wednesday, giving up four hits and two walks in seven scoreless innings and striking out five in his team's 7-3 victory over the Reds.

Lynn (14-8) was only at 94 pitches after seven innings, but a weather delay cost him the chance to go deeper into the game. He's surrendered more than two earned runs just once in his last nine starts going back to the beginning of July, and in that off game he only gave up three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings. Lynn owns a 2.78 ERA and 144:57 K:BB ratio in 158 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Pirates Tuesday.


Johnny Cueto surrenders five runs in loss vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto was stuck with a loss Wednesday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and four walks in five-plus innings and striking out four in his team's 7-3 defeat against the Cardinals.

Cueto (15-7) had won each of his last five starts before the streak came to a halt Wednesday, when he allowed a three-run double with the bases loaded in the fifth inning and left the bases loaded again the top of the sixth at the time of his removal. It was his worst start since giving up six earned runs on May 20. Cueto owns a 2.24 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 191:53 K:BB ratio in 192 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Cubs Tuesday.


Jorge De La Rosa allows two runs in win vs. Royals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa earned a win Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and three walks in eight innings and striking out three in his team's 5-2 victory over the Royals.

De La Rosa (13-8) surrenderd a solo home run in the second inning and another run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth. The big shot of the game came in the bottom of the sixth, when the Rockies offense delivered a grand slam to give the starter all the support he needed. De La Rosa owns a 4.21 ERA and 109:52 K:BB ratio in 149 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Giants Tuesday.


Jake Peavy strikes out eight in win vs. Cubs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy earned a win Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on 10 hits in seven innings and striking out eight in his team's 8-3 victory over the Cubs.

Peavy (3-12) has now won back-to-back games after taking 12 straight losses, including three in his first three starts with the Giants. The offense staked him to a four-run lead after one inning, and though he gave two of those runs back on a second-inning home run, he did a great job throughout the start despite the high hit total. Peavy owns a 4.48 ERA and 123:54 K:BB ratio in 156 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rockies Monday.


Edwin Jackson chased in third inning of loss vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jackson (6-14) gave up four runs in the top of the first inning and, after working a clean second, ran into trouble again in the third, allowing three doubles and a two-run home run in the inning before being yanked. His ERA has ballooned up to 6.09 to go with a 123:61 K:BB ratio in 139 innings. Jackson is scheduled to face the Reds Tuesday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu is not expected to go on a rehab assignment before returning from the disabled list, MLB.com reports.

"He'll eventually get on a mound, but I haven't heard any talk about that," manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday. "He just started playing catch. He's got some time. We're not going to push him."

Ryu played catch for the second straight day Wednesday. He is working his way back from a strained right gluteus.


Tanner Roark tosses seven scoreless innings Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark didn't factor into the decision Wednesday despite giving up just five hits and one walk in seven scoreless innings while striking out two in his team's 3-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Roark watched his lead evaporate in the eighth inning, when the Diamondbacks clubbed a two-run home run to even the game. He owns a 2.80 ERA and 118:36 K:BB ratio in 160 2/3 innings. Roark's next test will come Monday against the Phillies.


Alex Wood surrenders two runs in no-decision Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Braves pitcher Alex Wood wasn't a factor in the decision Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on four hits and one walk in seven-plus innings and striking out four in his team's 3-2 loss to the Pirates.

Wood delivered seven scoreless innings before giving up a walk and a ground rule double to open the eighth and end his night. Both runners would come around to score to deny Wood a win. He owns a 3.05 ERA and 124:37 K:BB ratio in 130 innings after surrendering two earned runs or less in each of his last five starts. Wood is slated to face the Mets Tuesday.

He surrendered RBI singles in the first and sixth innings, and his offense was able to get both runs back in the eighth. Cole owns a 3.69 ERA and 84:33 K:BB ratio in 92 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Cardinals Tuesday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Report: Cubs, Giants set to continue Tuesday game Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) The Giants have prevailed in a protest of how Tuesday's called game was handled, and Tuesday's 2-0 Cubs win is set to be continued Thursday, picking up where things left off in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The game was delayed for more than four hours after the grounds crew was unable to get the tarp completely on the infield before it was drenched, with the umpires ultimately deciding to call the game and award Chicago with the win late into the night. Tsuyoshi Wada (win) and Ryan Vogelsong (loss) were the pitchers of record in the game, but if it's continued, those decisions are up in the air.

His next start is set for Monday at San Diego.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Phillies southpaw Cole Hamels didn't stick around long enough Wednesday to earn his ninth consecutive quality start, but he did last long enough to raise his record to 8-6.

Hamels took advantage of a three-run fourth inning that provided a 4-3 lead and rode a five-and-fly to victory. He allowed three runs on nine hits with one walk and four strikeouts. Among his mistakes was slammed over the fence in the second inning by Kendrys Morales.

The veteran is set to start again Tuesday against Washington.

Nathan Eovaldi battered in defeat to Rangers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) The rollercoaster stretch for Marlins starter Nathan Eovaldi continued Wednesday against lowly Texas.

The right-hander yielded five runs to the Rangers in the first two innings. He surrendered six hits in those frames, including doubles by J.P. Arencibia and Alex Rios that combined to plate four runs. Eovaldi settled down to pitch three shutout innings thereafter, but still lowered his record to 6-8. He has just one win since June 23.

Ryan Vogelsong allows two runs before long delay Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong surrendered two earned runs on three hits and two walks in four innings while striking out four Tuesday before his team's game against the Cubs was halted by a long delay.

The grounds crew had trouble getting the tarp in place once the game was stopped due to rain, leading to an extremely long delay as they tried to make the field playable after the rain stopped. Vogelsong is scheduled to face the Nationals Sunday.


Zack Greinke may miss Thursday's scheduled start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated after Tuesday's game that pitcher Zack Greinke wasn't a certainty to make his scheduled start Thursday, the Orange County Register reports.

It was reported before the game that Greinke was dealing with minor elbow soreness, and there's a possibility Greinke's availability is linked to his elbow issue. Mattingly said that starting Greinke Thursday is a "possibility."


Tsuyoshi Wada goes five scoreless innings before delay Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Cubs pitchr Tsuyoshi Wada gave up six hits in five scoreless innings while striking out three Tuesday before his team's game against the Giants went into a long delay in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The rain came down for about 15 minutes at Wrigley Field, but the grounds crew was unable to bring the tarp in before the field got soaked. That led to a massive delay that extended after the rain stopped as the grounds crew tried to get the field in a playable condition. If Wada's line stands, he'll own a 2.75 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to pitch again Sunday against the Orioles.
