by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:07 pm ET) Pitcher J.A. Happ lost his first start for the Pirates, and his first National Leauge start since 2012. 

Happ was acquired from Seattle in a trade-deadline deal. He allowed four runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings. He's lasted a total of 9 1/3 innings in his last three starts, allowing 13 earned runs over that span. 


Phillies reliever Ken Giles earns four-out save on Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11:06 pm ET) Phillies relief pitcher Ken Giles had a nearly perfect outing on Tuesday, getting the final four outs of Philadelphia's 6-2 win over the Dodgers, earning his third save of the year.

Giles came on in the eighth with runners on second and third and managed to get Jimmy Rollins to strikeout. Then in the ninth, Giles allowed a leadoff walk before getting two of the final three batters to strikeout to end the game. Giles lowered his ERA to 1.72 in 47 innings of work.


Jake Arrieta wins 12th for Cubs
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:03 pm ET) Cubs starter Jake Arrieta improved to 12-6 with a win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday. 

Arrieta has won six of his last seven decisions, dating back to June 21. For the second time in four starts, he threw seven shutout innings. For the second time in five starts, he allowed just two hits. 


Phillies pitcher Jerome Williams strikes out six in no decision
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11:01 pm ET) Phillies pitcher Jerome Williams allowed one run on seven hits in five innings of work in Philadelphia's 6-2 win, but did not factor into a decision. 

Williams, who struck out six and walked three, ran into problems in the fifth when he put runners on first and third with one out. Andre Ethier then singled to right to score a run. Williams managed to get out of the inning without allowing anymore damage. 

Williams, who remains 3-8, will look to pick up another victory Saturday against the Brewers.


Mets designate RP Alex Torres for assignment on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:00 pm ET) Mets reliever Alex Torres was designated for assignment on Tuesday. Torres was acquired from the Padres right at the end of spring training, but he wound up struggling to the tune of a 3.15 ERA and a 1.515 WHIP over 34 1/3 innings of work.

The move was necessitated by the acquisition of reliever Eric O'Flaherty from the A's on Tuesday.


Yankees OF Chris Young rips 13th home run of the season
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:57 pm ET) Yankees outfielder Chris Young went 3 for 4 at the plate in New York's 13-3 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday. Young did the bulk of his damage in the seventh when he blasted the first pitch he saw from Alexi Ogando over the left field wall for a three-run home run. 

Young, who also scored four runs in the game, is now hitting .268 with 36 RBI on the year.


Mets get RP Eric O'Flaherty in trade with A's on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:56 pm ET) The Mets have acquired left-handed reliever Eric O'Flaherty and cash from the Athletics in exchange for a player to be named later. With Jerry Blevins (broken forearm) still without a timetable, the Mets were in needed of another lefty specialist in the bullpen.

O'Flaherty, 30, was designated for assignment by the A's back on Saturday. He went 1-2 with a 5.91 ERA over 21 1/3 innings with the A's this season. He has battled injuries over the past couple of years, totaling 40 appearances between 2013 and 2014.

But in his glory days, O'Flaherty posted some very impressive numbers. In 2011-2012, he recorded a shiny 1.31 ERA in 131 innings for the Braves.

In a corresponding move, the Mets designated reliever Alex Torres for assignment.


Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka earns eighth win of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:51 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka allowed three runs on five hits in six innings of work in New York's 13-3 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday. Tanaka, who struck out three and walked just one, didn't run into problems until the fifth inning. 

Tanaka allowed runners on first and third with one out before allowing a Blake Swihart single to left center to plate a run. Then, a Jackie Bradley sac fly scored another run. Tanaka then allowed a solo home run to Pablo Sandoval in the sixth.

Tanaka, now 8-4, moved his ERA to 3.84 in 93 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Saturday against the Blue Jays.


Brewers' Brandon Kintzler tosses scoreless inning in rehab game
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:49 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler began his rehab assignment Tuesday by tossing a scoreless inning for the team's Rookie League affiliate. Kintzler struck out one batter and did not give up a hit during his one inning of work.

Kintzler has not pitched since late May due to tendinitis in his left knee.


Hunter Pence leads Giants to victory with late homer on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:48 pm ET) Right fielder Hunter Pence put the Giants up for good, when he hit a three-run home run in the eighth inning of Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Braves. Pence, who drove in four runs in the game, blasted his seventh home run of the year, breaking a 3-3 tie late in the game.

Pence has cooled off a bit lately, batting .250 (8 for 32) with two home runs in his past eight games.
