Kyle Lobstein strikes out 10 Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:13 pm ET) Tigers pitcher Kyle Lobstein struck out 10 hitters Tuesday against the Indians.

Lobstein allowed two runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out 10 and walked three during the outing. Both runs came in the first inning. With two outs, Lobstein gave up a single to Michael Brantley, and a two-run homer to Carlos Santana. That would be all Lobstein would give up during the outing. Lobstein put two men on the following inning, but managed to work out of it. He was strong over the rest of the start. Lobstein wound up throwing 101 pitches.

Lobstein was stuck with a no-decision for his efforts. He'll take on the Giants in his next start.


Carlos Carrasco turns in strong start despite being hittable
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:04 pm ET) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco had a strong start Tuesday against the Tigers.

Carrasco allowed one run on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out 10 and walked one during the outing. Carrasco gave up his only run of the game in the second inning. After the first three batters singled to load the bases, Carrasco walked in a run. He managed to pitch out of trouble, striking out two and getting a ground out to escape the inning. 

Despite giving up just one run, Carrasco often found himself working in and out of jams. Carrasco did give up 10 hits, but was able to pitch around base-runners all game. He put at least two runners in on the third, fourth and fifth innings, but managed to pitch out of it. 

Carrasco picked up the no-decision for his efforts. He’ll take on the White Sox in his next start.


Joe Kelly tosses quality start Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:50 pm ET) Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly tossed a quality start Tuesday against the Yankees.

Kelly allowed three runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out six and issued four walks during the game. Kelly performed well early on, but found himself in trouble late in the start. A solo home run put a dent in the outing in the third inning, but Kelly didn’t really find himself in trouble until the fifth.

Kelly allowed three straight singles to open the frame, though was slightly bailed out when his defense threw out Martin Prado on the basepaths. With men on second and third, Kelly then walked the bases loaded. He walked the next batter as well, bringing in the first run of the inning. Derek Jeter would also single in a run later in the inning. 

With the win, Kelly moved to 3-3. He’ll take on the Blue Jays in his next start. 


Shane Greene has a tough start Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:50 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Shane Greene couldn’t make it three innings Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Greene allowed six runs on six hits over 2 2/3 innings. He struck out three and walked three during the appearance. Greene found himself in trouble almost immediately. After getting one out to open the game, Greene allowed a single, a walk and a run-scoring double to the next three batters. He then gave up a sac fly, plating the second run of the inning. Greene was able to toss a scoreless second, but got into trouble in the third.

After getting a fly out to open the frame, Greene allowed a single, walk and three-run homer to the next three hitters he faced. After striking out Will Middlebrooks, Greene gave up a solo shot against Xander Bogaerts. A walk to David Ross ended Greene’s night. 

With the loss, Greene fell to 4-2. He’ll take on the Royals in his next start.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:48 pm ET) The Dodgers added pitcher Carlos Frias and infielders Miguel Rojas and Erisbel Arruebarrena to the expanded active roster Tuesday. Frias is slated to make Wednesday's start against the Nationals.

Jonathan Pettibone may not be ready by opening day
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:44 pm ET) Phillies pitcher Jonathan Pettibone may not be recovered from shoulder surgery by opening day, MLB.com reports.

"That will be determined over the next few months," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

Pettibone made just two starts with the Phillies this season. He underwent surgery to repair his shoulder in mid-June.


R.A. Dickey wins one Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:29 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey turned in a strong start Tuesday against the Rays.

Dickey gave up two runs on two hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked three. Dickey was tagged for both runs early in the start. After getting a strikeout to open the second inning, Dickey loaded the bases on a single, walk and hit by pitch. With the bases juiced, Dickey gave up a run-scoring single and a sac fly. That was all Dickey would give up. After his rough second inning, Dickey would go on to throw five scoreless frames.

With the win, Dickey improved to 11-12. He'll take on the Red Sox in his next start. 


Jenrry Mejia tosses perfect inning in 22nd save
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:27 pm ET) Mets closer Jenrry Mejia earned his 22nd save Tuesday, striking out two in a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 8-6 win over the Marlins.

There was plenty of scoring in this game, but the Mets bullpen locked things down once handed the ball, tossing three scoreless innings while striking out three, allowing one hit and facing the minimum amount of batters possible (nine). Mejia owns a 3.90 ERA and 87:35 K:BB ratio in 83 innings.


Giancarlo Stanton slugs 35th home run Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:25 pm ET) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton went 2 for 4 with a double and a two-run home run in his team's 8-6 loss to the Mets Tuesday.

Stanton has homered in two straight games against the Mets to increase his National League HR lead to five blasts. He has hit .293/.401/.561 with 35 home runs, 101 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 508 at-bats, and with no one running away with the NL batting title, the outfielder has an outside shot at chasing a Triple Crown with a big September.


Jeremy Hellickson can't make it four innings Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:25 pm ET) Rays pitcher Jeremy Hellickson was unable to toss four innings Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Hellickson allowed five runs on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked two during the outing. Toronto managed to chip away at Hellickson early, picking up runs in both the second and third inning. Things proved difficult in the fourth, though.

After notching a ground out to open the frame, Hellickson gave up two straight singles. With two men on, Hellickson allowed a three-run homer to Jose Reyes. He was pulled from the game at that point. Hellickson threw 87 pitches.

With the loss, Hellickson dropped to 1-3. He'll take on the Orioles in his next start.
