Jason Grilli blasted in loss vs. Mariners


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:34 am ET) Angels pitcher Jason Grilli took a loss Tuesday, giving up four earned runs while recording just one out in his team's 13-2 defeat against the Mariners.

Grilli (1-3) walked a batter and hit another batter to open up the fifth inning, and after a sacrifice moved both runners into scoring position, he gave up back-to-back doubles to bring three runs home, getting himself pulled from the game with a man still in scoring position. That runner would come around to score, leaving him with his worst performance since joining the Angels. Grilli owns a 4.03 ERA and 51:19 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings.


Carson Smith picks up win vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:29 am ET) Mariners pitcher Carson Smith earned a win Tuesday, walking one and striking out one in two scoreless innings in his team's 13-2 victory over the Angels.

Smith took over for an injured Roenis Elias and handled business in the fourth and fifth innings, and the offense exploded for 13 unanswered runs after falling behind 2-0 in the first inning. Smith has tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out six and walking two.


Cory Rasmus tosses four scoreless innings vs. Mariners


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:26 am ET) Angels pitcher Cory Rasmus wasn't a factor in the decision Tuesday, giving up just one hit in four scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 13-2 loss to the Mariners.

Rasmus, who has mostly pitched in relief this season, wasn't going to be given a full workload no matter the results, but he was removed after just 43 pitches after passing that mark in three of his previous four outings. The bullpen immediately blew the lead upon Rasmus' exit. He owns a 2.57 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 51:15 K:BB ratio in 49 innings. Rasmus is scheduled to face the Rangers Sunday.


Kevin Quackenbush picks up fourth save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:25 am ET) Padres pitcher Kevin Quackenbush earned his fourth save Tuesday, giving up one earned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one in his team's 5-4 win over the Phillies.

Quackenbush walked a batter with one out, and after the runner took second on catcher's indifference with two outs, a single brought him home to give the reliever his second earned run in his last three appearances. He owns a 2.68 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 53:18 K:BB ratio in 50 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kennedy (11-13) gave up a solo home run in the second inning and fell behind on a two-run blast in the fifth, but the offense was able to pick him up with three runs in the sixth. It was Kennedy's first time allowing multiple home runs in a start this season. He owns a 3.80 ERA and 196:67 K:BB ratio in 187 1/3 innings. Kennedy is slated to face the Giants Sunday.

Burnett (8-17) gave up a pair of runs in the first inning Tuesday, but the offense carried him to a 3-2 lead heading into the sixth inning, where the starter served up a two-run home run and an RBI single to fall behind for good. It's the first time in his last eight starts Burnett has been unable to complete six innings. He owns a 4.40 ERA and 180:87 K:BB ratio in 202 2/3 innings going into Sunday's scheduled start against the A's.

Tepesch (5-10) saw the A's score a pair of runs in the fourth inning right after the offense had given him a 3-0 lead. After the Rangers tacked on three more runs in the fifth, the starter served up a harmless solo home run in the sixth. Tepesch owns a 4.47 ERA and 51:38 K:BB ratio in 114 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Angels Sunday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kazmir (14-9) is now 0-4 in his last five starts, though he did a solid job in his previous two outings before throwing up a clunker Tuesday. He served up a two-run blast during a three-run fourth inning before the Rangers scored three more in the fifth inning to put the A's into a hole they couldn't escape. Kazmir owns a 3.44 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 150:49 K:BB ratio in 178 innings. He's scheduled to face the Phillies Sunday.

Though Herrera (3-3) was the pitcher charged with the loss, he wasn't the one who gave up the decisive hit, as the following pitcher surrendered a bases-loaded triple to turn a one-run lead into a two-run deficit. Herrera owns a 1.55 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 55:24 K:BB ratio in 64 innings after allowing his first runs since June 24, ending a string of 30 straight scoreless appearances.

Putnam induced three ground balls in the save, with all turning into groundouts. It was his first save since Aug. 27, with the pitcher going 1-1 with three holds since that date. Putnam owns a 2.00 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 44:20 K:BB ratio in 54 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:31 am ET) White Sox pitcher Eric Surkamp picked up a win Tuesday, striking out two and walking one in a scoreless inning of work in his team's 7-5 victory over the Royals.

Surkamp (2-0) had given up runs in two of his previous three outings before throwing up a zero Tuesday, and the White Sox offense took the lead for good after Surkamp retired the only batter he faced in the sixth inning. He was pulled with two outs in the seventh after the Royals sent a pinch hitter to the plate. Surkamp owns a 5.66 ERA and 19:11 K:BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings.


Liam Hendriks gives up four runs in short outing vs. White Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:28 am ET) Royals pitcher Liam Hendriks didn't factor into Tuesday's decision after allowing four earned runs on seven hits and one walk in three-plus innings in his team's 7-5 loss to the White Sox.

Hendriks gave up a run in the first inning and another in the second before running into trouble in the top of the fourth, loading the bases on two singles and a walk before being removed. Two of the runners left on base ended up scoring on sacrifice flies. Hendriks owns a 5.76 ERA and 20:7 K:BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings. He's not yet scheduled for another start.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bassitt was already at 94 pitches by the time he was removed in the fourth inning, giving him his shortest outing in his three starts with the team after making it through six frames in each of his first two starts. Bassitt owns a 5.29 ERA and 13:11 K:BB ratio in 17 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers Monday.

(12:25 am ET) Giants closer Santiago Casilla picked up his 16th save Tuesday, striking out one in a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Casilla has seen his fair share of struggles recently, surrendering an earned run in three of his last five outings coming into Tuesday's game. Still, those runs have resulted in just one blown save, which came in a game in which Casilla recorded a win. He owns a 1.86 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 41:15 K:BB ratio in 53 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rodriguez needed just 11 pitches to finish off the Cardinals and record his third straight hitless appearance.
