Kenley Jansen strikes out three in 39th save


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:56 am ET) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen earned his 39th save Tuesday, striking out three without giving up a hit or a walk in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off his team's 4-1 win over the Nationals.

Jansen saw the first batter of the ninth inning reach base on an error, but he calmly struck out the next three batters he faced to slam the door on the win. He owns a 2.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 90:15 K:BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:53 am ET) Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw earned another win Tuesday, allowing one earned run on three hits and two walks in eight innings while striking out eight in his team's 4-1 victory over the Nationals.

Kershaw (17-3) has pitched at least eight innings in each of his last five starts, and he's held the opposition to three runs or less in 22 of his 23 starts this season. Kershaw owns a 1.70 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 202:25 K:BB ratio in 169 1/3 innings. He's now on pace to finish the season ahead of Sandy Koufax's 1.73 ERA from 1966. Kershaw's scheduled to face the Padres Tuesday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:53 am ET) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister took a loss Tuesday, allowing four runs (three earned) on 10 hits and two walks in five-plus innings while striking out two in his team's 4-1 defeat against the Dodgers.

Fister (12-6) has failed to post a quality start in three straight outings, taking a loss in each of those starts. After giving up two home runs in each of his last two games, the starter surrendered a two-run blast in the sixth inning Tuesday and put two more men on base before leaving the game. Fister owns a 2.66 ERA and 82:18 K:BB ratio in 135 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Braves Monday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Quackenbush (3-3) surrendered a one-out single, and when the runner advanced to second base on the second out, he intentionally walked Miguel Montero to face A.J. Pollock, who flied out to center field. Quackenbush owns a 2.58 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 47:17 K:BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings.


Brad Ziegler serves up walkoff home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Despaigne was excellent for much of the outing, but three of his four singles were concentrated in the fourth inning, providing the Diamondbacks with a run and preventing Despaigne from earning a win. He owns a 3.06 ERA and 54:25 K:BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings. Despaigne is scheduled to face the Rockies in Colorado Sunday.


Wade Miley tosses seven one-run innings vs. Padres


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:46 am ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one earned run on seven hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out five in his team's 2-1 loss to the Padres.

Miley was sharp Tuesday, needing just 85 pitches to complete seven innings and surrendering only one extra-base hit. However, his offense couldn't provide him the support needed for a win. Miley owns a 4.18 ERA and 168:64 K:BB ratio in 183 innings. He's scheduled to face the Dodgers Sunday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Belisle (4-7) came in to shut down a Giants rally in the seventh inning but ended up throwing fuel onto the fire, surrendering three doubles and a single before getting pulled. He owns a 5.37 ERA and 38:18 K:BB ratio in 58 2/3 innings.


Mat Latos allows five runs in loss vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:24 am ET) Reds pitcher Mat Latos took a loss Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on 10 hits and one walk in five innings and striking out two in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Orioles.

Latos (5-4) encountered trouble right off the bat, surrendering four runs on five singles in the first inning. He then served up a leadoff home run in the second but buckled down to keep the Orioles off the board for the remainder of his outing. Latos owns a 3.46 RA and 69:25 K:BB ratio in 96 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mets Sunday.


George Kontos picks up win vs. Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Lyles took a 7-1 lead into the sixth inning, where he surrenderd two home runs to cut his lead to three. The Giants completed the comeback in the seventh, with two runs charged to the starter. Lyles owns a 4.35 ERA and 77:42 K:BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mets Monday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:19 am ET) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing six earned runs on seven hits and one walk in four innings while striking out five in his team's 12-7 win over the Rockies.

Petit was brutal with runners on base Tuesday, giving up a two-run double, a two-run triple and a two-run home run in his first three innings of work. It was a massive course correction after the pitcher set a major-league record with 46 straight batters retired, a streak that ended in his previous outing. Petit owns a 3.89 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 101:18 K:BB ratio in 90 1/3 innings.


Yovani Gallardo drops one Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo lost his eighth game Tuesday against the Cubs.

Gallardo gave up seven runs, five earned, on eight hits over five innings. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. Gallardo got himself in trouble early. After notching the first out of the first inning, Gallardo loaded the bases against the next three hitters he faced. Two straight singles brought two runs home. A throwing error brought in the third run of the inning, and force out pulled another run home. Gallardo left the first inning down by four runs. 

Gallardo settled in, tossing three scoreless innings. He fell into trouble again in the fifth. With a man on, Gallardo gave up a run-scoring double. The next hitter belted a two-run homer. 

With the loss, Gallardo dropped to 8-8. He'll take on the Marlins in his next start.

With one out, Arrieta gave up three straight singles, including a run-scoring hit. He settled in at that point, not giving up another hit until the sixth inning. While he put two men on during the inning, Arrieta was able to get out of it without surrendering any additional runs. 

With the win, Arrieta improved to 8-5. He'll take on the Blue Jays in his next start.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Cardinals pitcher Pat Neshek picked up his fifth save Tuesday, tossing a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 6-4 win over the Pirates.

Neshek continues to pile up scoreless appearances despite being touched up for four runs in a game in late August. He got the call Tuesday with closer Trevor Rosenthal having pitched in each of the last two games. Neshek owns a 1.37 ERA, 0.66 WHIP and 61:7 K:BB ratio in 59 innings.
