Chris Valaika slugs first home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:32 pm ET) Cubs second baseman Chris Valaika went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 8-3 loss to the Giants Wednesday.

It was the first home run of the season for Valaika, who was shifted into the lineup once Starlin Castro was scratched to attend to a family emergency. Valaika owns a .182/.222/.273 line in 33 at-bats.


Lance Lynn spins seven scoreless innings vs. Reds
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:30 pm ET) 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
(11:29 pm ET) 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.


LaTroy Hawkins picks up 19th save Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:29 pm ET) Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins earned his 19th save Wednesday, tossing a 1-2-3 ninth inning in his team's 5-2 win over the Royals.

Save opportunities have been few and far between for the Rockies closer, who is a perfect 2 for 2 in save conversions since the All-Star break. He owns a 2.72 ERA and 23:10 K:BB ratio in 43 innings.


Jorge De La Rosa allows two runs in win vs. Royals
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:27 pm ET) 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.


Error sinks Danny Duffy against Rockies
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:26 pm ET) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was hurt by an error Wednesday against the Rockies.

Duffy allowed five runs, one earned, on five hits over seven innings of work. He struck out six and walked one. Duffy was pitching well until the sixth inning. Up until that point, he had allowed just one run on three hits. Things looked promising to start the sixth, as Duffy quickly recorded the first two outs. He would have been out of the inning with no damage, but third baseman Nolan Arenado’s throwing error put a man on base. Duffy then loaded the bases on a single and walk. With the bases juiced, Duffy gave up a grand slam to Matt McBride.

With the loss, Duffy dropped to 8-11. He’ll take on the Twins in his next start. 


Matt McBride slugs grand slam Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:26 pm ET) Making his first start of the season Wednesday, Rockies first baseman Matt McBride went 2 for 3 with a grand slam in his team's 5-2 win over the Royals.

McBride made his season debut one day earlier, failing to get a hit in his only at-bat as a pinch hitter. McBride hit seven home runs in 187 at-bats with Triple-A Colorado Springs before joining the Rockies this week.


Juan Uribe participates in batting practice Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:25 pm ET) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe increased his baseball activity Wednesday, participating in batting practice, MLB.com reports.

Manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Uribe was making nice progress in his recovery from a hamstring strain. The third baseman has been sidelined less than a week with the injury.


David Ortiz removed Wednesday due to general soreness
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:25 pm ET) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was removed from Wednesday's game due to general soreness, according to the Providence Journal.

Ortiz had a productive outing, singling three times and hitting his 30th home run. He was replaced by Alex Hassan in the bottom of the ninth. The issue doesn't sound all that serious, and there's a chance Ortiz will return to action soon.


Andrew Susac blasts first career home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:21 pm ET) Giants catcher Andrew Susac went 1 for 5 with a two-run home run in his team's 8-3 victory over the Cubs Wednesday.

Susac's third-inning home run was the first of his career, coming in his 11th career game. He has 10 home runs in 213 at-bats with Triple-A Fresno as well. Susac has hit .241/.290/.379 in 29 at-bats with the major-league club.
