by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:14 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Martin Perez made another rehab start at Triple-A on Tuesday.

Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts hits game-winner on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:14 pm ET) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts went 2 for 4 with a double on Tuesday, and had the biggest of the night in the 4-3 win over the Marlins. Bogaerts came to the plate in the seventh inning with his team down 3-1 and the bases loaded.

He proceeded to rope a single to center field, scoring all three runs and leading Boston to victory. 

Bogaerts is batting .375 with 10 doubles and 13 RBI over his last 15 games, as he tries to become the final man added to the American League All-Star roster.


Marlins' Christian Yelich extends hit streak to nine games Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:07 pm ET) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich extended his current hitting streak to nine games with a 3-for-4 effort on Tuesday. Yelich had an RBI single in the third inning, and then drove in another run with a double in the seventh, though the Marlins would end up losing 4-3 to the Red Sox.

Yelich is batting a robust .533 (16 for 30) with four doubles and three RBI over the nine-game streak. 


Red Sox RP Koji Uehara gets save No. 20 on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:04 pm ET) Red Sox closer Koji Uehara worked a perfect ninth inning on Tuesday to claim his 20th save of the season. Uehara struck out a pair of batters, preserving the 4-3 win over the Marlins.

After enduring some struggles in the middle of June, Uehara has been lights out lately. He hasn't allowed a run in his last eight appearances, and is 20-for-22 in save chances this year. 


Red Sox SP Wade Miley K's nine on no-decision on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:01 pm ET) Red Sox lefty Wade Miley was solid on Tuesday against the Marlins. Miley went 6 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck nine batters, a season-high.

Miley gave up a run in the second and two in the seventh, but did not factor in the decision, as the Red Sox rallied late in the 4-3 victory. It's his first no-decision since April 10, which was his first start of the season.

Miley has been trying to find some consistency on the mound. Over his last seven starts, he is 4-2 with a 3.89 ERA.


Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin to make Double-A rehab start Friday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:00 pm ET) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin is expected to make his second rehab start Friday for the team's Double-A affiliate, reports Cleveland.com.

Tomlin threw two innings for the team's Rookie League club Sunday.

"It went good," Tomlin said. "The fastball and cutter were where I wanted it. It was the same with the change up and curve ball. I didn't walk anybody, threw strikes and felt better in the second inning than I did in the first. That was the main thing. I wanted to get those two innings in and see how I recovered."

He is expected to throw three or four innings Friday. Tomlin has not pitched this season as he recovers from shoulder surgery.


Marlins SP Dan Haren allows one run in no-decision on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:59 pm ET) Marlins right-hander Dan Haren was excellent on Tuesday against the Red Sox. Haren allowed just one run on six hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out five, lowering his ERA to 3.34.

Haren allowed an early run to score in the second, putting the Marlins down 1-0. But the Miami offense got Haren off the hook, and he settled in the rest of the way. However, he was forced to settle for a no-decision, as the bullpen gave up the lead in the seventh inning. The Marlins wound up losing 4-3.

This was Haren's finest outing in a while. It's the first time since May 23 that he allowed fewer than two runs in a start. 


Reds 1B Joey Votto busts out with three-hit night on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:53 pm ET) Reds first baseman Joey Votto was on his game Tuesday against the Nationals. The former MVP went 3 for 5 with a double, a homer and three RBI in the 5-0 win. Votto hit an RBI-double in the first inning to give the Reds and early 1-0 lead.

Then, with his team up 2-0 in the third, Votto smoked a solo home run to right field off Max Scherzer. It was Votto's 15th home run of the season, and his first since June 13.

Votto has been struggling at the plate recently, as the three-hit effort on Tuesday gives him a .211 average over his last 10 ballgames. Tuesday's homer was his first extra-base hit in his last 19 games.


Nationals SP Max Scherzer knocked around for five runs vs. Reds


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:46 pm ET) Max Scherzer did not flirt with a no-hitter on Tuesday. In fact, the Nationals ace endured his ugliest start in quite some time. Scherzer lasted just 4 2/3 innings against the Reds, allowing five runs on seven hits. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

Scherzer got into early trouble by allowing two runs to score in the first inning. Then in the third, he gave up a solo home run to Joey Votto before allowing two more runs in the fifth, as the Reds went on to win 5-0.

Tuesday's outing was likely just a mere blip on the radar for the All-Star right-hander, as he still sport. This was Scherzer's shortest start since June 17, 2014. It was also the first time this year that he did not pitch at least six innings.


Reds' Johnny Cueto shines in complete-game two-hitter Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:43 pm ET) Reds ace Johnny Cueto was dominant against the Nationals on Tuesday. Cueto tossed a complete-game shutout, allowing just two hits and one walk while striking out a season-high 11 batters. Cueto needed 122 pitches to complete the nine-inning gem, and he lowered his ERA to 2.61.

This was Cueto's first complete game since last August, and his first complete-game shutout since May 15, 2014. He has won back-to-back starts for the second time this year.

Brewers SP Wily Peralta (oblique) takes step in recovery


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:13 pm ET) Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta threw to batters prior to Tuesday's game against the Braves. Peralta has been on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique injury since the end of May. He did not experience any problems with Tuesday's outing, and he could begin a minor league rehab assignment shortly.

"He's going to have to make two to three rehab starts," manager Craig Counsell said, per MLB.com. "He's healthy, but in order to start a game for us, he has to have kind of a base under him in terms of pitches, which is going to take a couple of weeks to do. We can't activate him and have 50 pitches. He'll have to be able to throw 90 or so pitches."

The Brewers are hoping to have Peralta back in the rotation by the end of July.

Phillies' Cesar Hernandez could remain starting second baseman


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8:06 pm ET) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Tuesday that Cesar Hernandez will likely keep the starting second baseman job once Chase Utley returns from the disabled list.

Hernandez has been one of the Phillies' hottest hitters over the last two weeks or so, and is earning high praise from the coaches and front office. Amaro wentas far as to call Hernandez the "team's best second baseman", according to CSN Philadelphia.

Utley, meanwhile, was batting .179 before landing on the DL with an ankle injury. The veteran has struggled all season, and may have seen his starting role vanish.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Pedroia is eligible to come off the DL on Friday. The team could activate him for the weekend series or wait until after the All Star Break to give Pedroia extra rest. 

"Pedey’s looking at this, looking at what’s coming up after the weekend, and he’s being realistic about it as well,” manager John Farrell said, per ESPN. “The best way to describe it is that he’ll be out there as soon as he’s ready -- the first day that he’s fully ready."
