by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:40 am ET) Angels manager Mike Scioscia said after Thursday's win over the Tigers that shortstop Erick Aybar (hamstring) is not expected to need a trip to the disabled list, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Aybar left Thursday's game due to hamstring tightness. He suffered the injury while trying to beat a bunt to first base.

He was replaced Thursday by Taylor Featherston, who had played a total of six innings across four games at the position this season.

Iannetta has hit just .178/.263/.307 with 13 RBI in 101 at-bats, but all three of his home runs have come in his last eight games.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Burnett (5-1) struck out six and walked two batters during the outing. His ERA rose from 1.37 to 1.81.

The Pirates gave Burnett a 7-0 lead before Burnett allowed two runs to score in the fourth inning on hits by Justin Upton and Will Middlebrooks. Burnett permitted more runs in the fifth inning when two hits and two errors led to two runs.

By failing to toss seven innings Thursday, it broke Burnett's streak of four-consecutive starts throwing seven innings. He allowed four earned runs during those outings. His next expected is scheduled for Tuesday at San Francisco.


Angels' Matt Joyce homers in second straight game Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:21 am ET) Angels left fielder Matt Joyce went 2 for 3 with a home run and two RBI in his team's 12-2 win over the Tigers on Thursday.

After being bogged down offensively for much of the season, Joyce has now homered in consecutive games and looks to be getting on track at the plate. He has hit just .187/.262/.313 with three home runs and 15 RBI in 134 at-bats, but it's improvement on his .360 OPS at the end of April.

Kennedy gave up a three-run home run to Jung Ho Kang in the first inning. He also surrendered a solo home run Gregory Polanco in the second and a two-run home run to Starling Marte in the third.

(1:15 am ET) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson earned a win on Thursday, giving up just one earned run on two hits and five walks in six innings while striking out seven in his team's 12-2 victory over the Tigers.

Wilson (3-3) was the epitome of effective wildness on Thursday, though he did hit a batter with the bases loaded in the third to bring home his only run allowed on the day. He had given up four earned runs in each of his previous two outings before bouncing back with his six quality start of the season on Thursday.

Wilson owns a 3.18 ERA and 49:21 K:BB ratio in 65 innings. He's on tap to face the Rays on Tuesday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Farmer (0-1) fell behind early, serving up a two-run homer in the first inning and following it up with a solo homer in the second. He then worked a pair of scoreless innings before a fourth run scored on a fifth-inning sacrifice fly. Farmer was pulled with the bases loaded and no outs in the sixth, and all three runs would eventually score.

Farmer went 5-1 with a 2.98 ERA and 50:19 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings over nine starts with Toledo. If he gets another start in the majors, it'll likely come Wednesday against the A's.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:13 am ET) With the Giants clinging to a one-run lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, Giants second baseman Joe Panik hit a double to drive in two runs to give the Giants a 3-0 lead. They would win the game 7-0.

The double off pitcher Brandon Cunniff was Panik's lone hit in four at-bats during the game. He also scored a run and is now hitting .296 on the season.

Prior to Thursday's game, Panik was hitting .350 with one home run and seven RBI in his last 10 games.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:12 am ET) Mariners catcher Mike Zunino went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-3 loss to the Indians on Thursday.

Ackley connected on a sixth-inning home run to cut his team's deficit to two runs, but it was as close as the Mariners would come to a comeback. It was Ackley's first homer since April 13.

Ackley, who is just 2 for 18 since May 16, has hit .182/.220/.327 with four home runs and nine RBI in 110 at-bats.

Clippard owns a 2.57 ERA and 17:12 K:BB ratio in 21 innings. The A's could turn to Sean Doolittle in the ninth inning soon.
