Mets SP Bartolo Colon gets blasted by Padres on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:38 pm ET) Mets starter Bartolo Colon got roughed up by the Padres in Wednesday's 7-3 loss. Colon was charged for six runs on 10 hits in just 2 1/3 innings, his shortest outing in his tenure with the Mets. 

Colon (9-10, 4.96ERA) struggled right out of the gate in this one, as he allowed two runs in each of the first three innings, including third-inning home runs to Justin Upton and Yonder Alonso. 

Colon was coming off his best start of the year, but that came after a couple of sub-par outings for the veteran right-hander. Colon is 0-4 with a 6.99 ERA over his past four starts.


Padres SP Tyson Ross rides offensive support to seventh win
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:29 pm ET) Padres starter Tyson Ross picked up his seventh win of the season in Wednesday's 7-3 victory over the Mets. Ross allowed one run on two hits over five innings. He issued four walks and struck out five, throwing 47 of his 83 pitches for strikes. 

The only run Ross gave up was a solo home run by Lucas Duda, snapping a streak of 100 innings without issuing a longball for Ross. But he was lifted after five innings with the Padres already ahead by five runs.

Ross (7-8, 3.38 ERA) is 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA over his past six starts.


Orioles RP Zach Britton earns one-out save
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:27 pm ET) It was a quick night of work for Orioles closer Zach Britton, who retired one batter Wednesday to pick up his 26th save and preserve his team's 2-0 win over the Braves.

Britton has converted three saves in his last five appearances, and has only allowed one run over his last 10 outings. Britton only needed five pitches to record the game's final out. 


SP Chris Tillman nearly goes the distance in Orioles victory
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:20 pm ET) Chris Tillman was one out from pitching a complete-game shutout, but had to settle for a victory as he was dominant for the Orioles in a 2-0 win over the Braves on Wednesday. 

Tillman threw 95 pitches and allowed four hits -- only one of which was an extra-base hit -- while walking none and striking out two. 

Tillman has now won six straight decisions over a stretch from June 5 that has seen him raise his record to 8-7 and lower his ERA from 5.94 to 4.35.


Rangers closing in on deal for Phillies' Cole Hamels
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:16 pm ET) The Rangers are on the verge of acquiring left-handed starter Cole Hamels from the Phillies, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. 

Hamels as been the source of many trade rumors over the past several weeks, with teams like the Astros, Dodgers and the Yankees all reportedly having shown interest in the three-time All-Star. 

Hamels tossed a no-hitter against the Cubs in his most recent start on Saturday.

The deal is not yet complete, and it is not known what other player or players are involved in the potential trade.


Blue Jays' Troy Tulowitzki hits two-run home run in team debut
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:09 pm ET) Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki made quite an impression with his new team on Wednesday. Playing in his first game with the Blue Jays, Tulowitzki went 3 for 5 with a pair of doubles and a two-run home run and three RBI in the 8-2 win over the Phillies.

Tulowitzki was batting leadoff for the first time since his rookie year in 2006. It's the first time he ever started a game in the lead-off position. 

But regardless of where he was batting, Tulowitzki had a great night for his new club, as he blasted his 13th home run in the second inning. 


Marlins SP Tom Koehler victimized by HR in loss
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:08 pm ET) Tom Koehler was hurt once again by an old adversary, as the Marlins starter made another mistake to Washington's Bryce Harper, who delivered the big blow in a 7-2 Miami defeat.

Koehler had given up just two runs through four innings, but ran into trouble in the fifth when he allowed back-to-back singles to Yunel Escobar and Jayson Werth. Harper followed with a titanic three-run homer into the second deck -- it's the fourth time Koehler has allowed a homer to Harper this season. 

Koehler (8-7) has now lost three of his last four decisions despite his ERA dropping from 3.52 to 3.38.


Phillies' Jerome Williams struggles against Blue Jays on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:02 pm ET) Phillies right-hander Jerome Williams had a sub-par outing against the Blue Jays on Wednesday night. Williams, making his second start since returning from the disabled list, allowed four runs on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings. He threw 49 of his 75 pitches for strikes in the 8-2 loss.

Williams (3-8, 6.36 ERA) allowed a two-run home run to new Blue Jay Troy Tulowitzki in the third inning. Two more runs would come across to score in the fifth before Williams was lifted from the game. 

The veteran hurler was better in his previous start, allowing three runs in six innings during a win against the Cubs. But overall, Williams has struggled for the better part of the season. He has allowed at least four earned runs in eight of his 16 starts in 2015. 


Nationals SP Doug Fister steady in victory
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:00 pm ET) Nationals starter Doug Fister put together a consistent start Wednesday, going six solid innings to pick up just his fourth victory of the season. 

Fister scattered just four hits, allowing two early runs before his teammates provided offensive help. Fister utilized his control, walking only one batter while striking out four. 

Fister had lost five of his previous six starts, allowing 26 runs over that stretch. 


Nationals OF Bryce Harper crushes two homers in victory
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:56 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper jumped back into the National League home run lead, blasting two upper-deck shots to give him 29 on the season and Washington a 7-2 win Wednesday. 

Harper continued his terrorization of Marlins starter Tom Koehler, hammering a three-run shot into the second deck of Marlins Park in the fifth inning, his fifth home run off Koehler. 

Harper added another solo shot in the eighth inning, this one again well over 400 feet. Harper now has 68 RBIs on the season and is hitting .335, third in the NL.
