Tyler Matzek strikes out six in win vs. Dodgers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek earned a win Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on 11 hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 10-4 victory over the Dodgers.

While the opposing starter allowed five runs on only four hits, Matzek (6-10) was able to scatter 11 hits while only allowing a two-run double in the sixth inning while already up 5-0. He's held the opposition to two earned runs or less in five straight starts and now owns a 4.19 ERA and 83:41 K:BB ratio in 111 2/3 innings. Matzek is scheduled to face the Diamondbacks Sunday.


Dan Haren surrenders five runs in loss vs. Rockies
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Dodgers pitcher Dan Haren took a loss Tuesday, allowing five earned runs on four hits and one walk in five innings while striking out five in his team's 10-4 defeat against the Rockies.

Haren (13-11) watched a run come home on a groundout and another on a wild pitch in the first inning. He then gave up another run on a groundout in the second inning before serving up a two-run home run in the fourth. It was the first time in five starts Haren surrendered more than one earned run. He owns a 4.14 ERA and 134:36 K:BB ratio in 174 innings heading into Sunday's scheduled matchup with the Cubs.


Roenis Elias exits game with left elbow stiffness
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias was removed from Tuesday's start against the Angels for precautionary reasons due to left elbow stiffness, the team announced.

Elias gave up two earned runs on five hits and one walk in three-plus innings and struck out one before having to come out of the game. He's scheduled to pitch again Sunday against the Astros, but his availability is obviously tied to the status of his elbow.


Jose Altuve becomes new franchise single-season hit king
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Astros second baseman Jose Altuve went 2 for 5 Tuesday to become the franchise's new single-season hit king in his team's 4-2 loss to the Indians.

Altuve tied Craig Biggio's franchise record of 210 hits with a double in the fifth inning Tuesday, and No. 211 came on a seventh-inning single. The major-league leader in batting average, Altuve has hit .343/.379/.456 with seven home runs, 54 RBI and 52 stolen bases in 616 at-bats. He has 11 more games to add to his new record.


Nick Tropeano strikes out four in loss vs. Indians
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Astros pitcher Nick Tropeano took a loss Tuesday, surrendering two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks in five innings while striking out four in his team's 4-2 defeat against the Indians.

Tropeano (1-1) pitched about as well as he did in his first start but faced a much tougher road to a win Tuesday with Corey Kluber racking up strikeouts against Houston hitters. The Astros pitcher gave up a run on a groundout in the first inning before the Indians plated an unearned run in the fourth. Tropeano owns a 2.70 ERA and 9:4 K:BB ratio in 10 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rangers Monday.


Corey Kluber strikes out 14 in dominant win vs. Astros
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber earned a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on seven hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out a season-high 14 batters in his team's 4-2 victory over the Astros.

Kluber (16-9) allowed an RBI single the first inning but went on to deliver his ninth double-digit-strikeout performance of the season. He's second in the majors in strikeouts during his breakout season. Kluber owns a 2.42 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 244:48 K:BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Twins Sunday in what should be his penultimate start of the season.


Joe Nathan blows save in loss vs. Twins
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Tigers closer Joe Nathan blew a save opportunity and took a loss Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on two hits and one walk in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 4-3 defeat against the Twins.

A well-pitched game turned into a wild one in the ninth inning Tuesday, as Nathan (4-4) followed up a blown save on a three-run home run against Glen Perkins with his own troubles in the bottom of the ninth. The Twins delivered the tying run on a one-out double and earned the win with a walkoff infield single. Nathan has given up runs in back-to-back appearances and now owns a 5.10 ERA and 52:28 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings.


Glen Perkins blows save, picks up win Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Twins closer Glen Perkins blew a save opportunity Tuesday but still ended up with a win in his team's 4-3 victory over the Tigers.

Perkins (4-3) was handed a 2-0 lead after a brilliant performance by Ricky Nolasco, and he served up a three-run home run to put his team in a hole. However, the offense delivered a walkoff win in the bottom half of the ninth to take Perkins off the hook. The closer's recent struggles continue, as he's now allowed runs in four straight appearances and six of his last eight games, serving up five home runs during that stretch. Perkins owns a 3.65 ERA and 66:11 K:BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings.


Jake Odorizzi spins six one-run innings in win vs. Yankees
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi earned a win Tuesday, giving up one earned run on five hits and one walk in six innings while striking out three in his team's 6-1 victory over the Yankees.

Odorizzi (11-12) gave up an RBI single in the second inning and appeared he may be headed for a tough loss befor the offense came through with a run in the fifth and another in the sixth. Three of his last four outings have been excellent, but he also has two clunkers in his last five starts. Odorizzi owns a 3.98 ERA and 171:56 K:BB ratio in 165 innings. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox next Tuesday.


Michael Pineda strikes out five in loss vs. Rays Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda took a loss Tuesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Rays.

Pineda (3-5) tossed four scoreless innings before the Rays broke through with a run on an error in the fifth. The second run against the starter came on a bunt single in the sixth with runners on the corners. Pineda owns a 2.15 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 41:6 K:BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles Monday.
