Strikeouts can't save White Sox SP Jose Quintana on Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:37 pm ET) White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana fanned eight of the Mariners he retired Sunday. That's impressive.

Other than that - not so much.

Quintana surrendered four runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 inning and would have lost if not for an error with two outs in the ninth that allowed his team to tie it. 

His struggles began immediately on a Kyle Seager two-run homer in the first and Austin Jackson two-run dinger in the second. He worked his way out of jams in the third and fourth before working his way out of the game in the fifth.

His effort marked only the second time he has not managed a quality start in his last eight outings.


Mariners SP Edgar Olmos gives up three runs in no-decision
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:37 pm ET) Mariners starter Edgar Olmos was average during his start against the White Sox on Sunday.

Olmos allowed three runs on five hits in five innings. He was erratic with his command, as he gave up five walks while recording just two strikeouts in the no-decision.

Olmos (1-0) now has a 2.13 ERA in 13 2/3 innings this year.


Skid has Cubs LF Kyle Schwarber out of Sunday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:23 pm ET) Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber has hit safely in only seven of his last 18 games. The result is that he is out of the lineup Sunday night against the Dodgers.

Schwarber is experiencing his first slump in the bigs. He is batting just .137 (7-for-51) over his last 14 games to send his average reeling from .330 to .266.


Yankees 2B Stephen Drew has rare offensive explosion
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:12 pm ET) In using a popular and appropriate term, the performance Sunday of Yankees second baseman Stephen Drew came out of left field.

Drew, who had failed all year to nudge his average to .200, finally scaled that mountain in Atlanta with a 4-for-4 effort that pushed it to .201. Among those hits was a two-run homer in the third.

He reached base all six times in the laugher. He walked in a run in the fifth and singled in another in the seventh.

His effort ended an 0-for-12 skid.


Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez handed 11th defeat
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6:10 pm ET) Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez did not pitch poorly Sunday, but it wasn't enough to keep him from dropping another decision, his fifth straight defeat. 

Gonzalez went 5 1/3 innings against the Rangers, allowing four runs on seven hits. He struck out three and walked two in a 103-pitch effort, but two first-inning runs put him in a hole. 

Gonzalez (9-11) has had an August to forget, going 0-4 with two no-decisions in the month. 


Rangers SP Derek Holland throws complete-game shutout
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6:02 pm ET) Derek Holland was dominant on the hill for the Rangers on Sunday, tossing a complete-game shutout to help Texas earn a key victory over the Orioles. 

Holland threw 116 pitches, allowing just four hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out 11. It's by far the most impressive start for Holland since returning from spinal fusion surgery 11 days ago. 

Holland threw first-pitch strikes to 23 of the 31 batters he faced to improve to 2-1 on the season. 


Braves SP Julio Teheran clobbered by Yankees
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:01 pm ET) If misery indeed loves company, Braves starter Julio Teheran was crazy about his relievers Sunday. They performed as poorly as he did in a 20-6 dismantling by the Yankees.

Teheran was shelled for eight runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings as his record slipped to 9-7. He walked three and whiffed four.

Three home runs dropped him behind 7-0. The blasts by Stephen Drew, Chase Headley and Jacoby Ellsbury came in the second and third innings. A bases loaded walk in the fifth ended his afternoon.

So much for his momentum - Teheran had five straight quality starts and three consecutive winning decisions when he took the mound Sunday.


Tons of runs allow Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi to win Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:54 pm ET) It's hard to believe considering his team scored three touchdowns and a safety Sunday in Atlanta that Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi didn't have a victory wrapped up upon finishing his outing.

He led just 8-5 after five mediocre innings in which he allowed five runs on eight hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. The Yankees piled on late for a 20-6 thrashing of the Braves.

Eovaldi gave up two runs in the third on RBI singles by Freddie Freeman and A.J. Pierzynski and three more in the fifth on run-scoring hits by Andrelton Simmons and Jonny Gomes.

The five runs was the most Eovaldi has surrendered since June 16. He has received plenty of run support this season, as his 14-2 record despite a 4.17 ERA attests.


Astros SP Lance McCullers continues inconsistent pattern
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5:50 pm ET) Astros starter Lance McCullers got off to a slow start, walking three of the game's first four batters and then couldn't get back on track in a loss to the Twins on Sunday. 

McCullers would allow only four hits and three runs before departing after six innings, but Houston was held off the scoreboard until the ninth inning. 

McCullers (5-5) went 0-2 in three August starts, allowing 11 earned runs in 13 1/3 innings. 


Twins SP Ervin Santana strikes out 10 in victory
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5:37 pm ET) Twins starter Ervin Santana picked up his first home victory since returning from an 80-game suspension, striking out 10 Astros on Sunday in a 7-5 triumph. 

Santana had been 0-1 with an ERA approaching 10.00 in three starts at home, but was in complete control during his seven innings of work, handcuffing the free-swinging Astros and allowing just six hits. 

It was the 15th double-digit strikeout game of Santana's career, and it ended a four-game losing streak for the pitcher.
