Indians SP Danny Salazar goes seven strong in victory over Jays
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:18 pm ET) Indians starter Danny Salazar outdueled David Price, as Salazar led the Indians to a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays on Monday. The right-hander went seven strong innings, allowing two runs on six hits. He walked one and struck out 10, throwing 63 of his 103 pitches for strikes.

Salazar (12-7, 3.27 ERA) allowed a two-run triple to Josh Donaldson in the fifth inning, which gave the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead. But the Indians rallied back to re-take the lead in the seventh, any Salazar was given the win.

This was a solid bounceback for Salazar, who had allowed four earned runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings his last time out. In five August starts, Salazar went 3-1 with a 2.53 ERA.


Braves SP Shelby Miller's winless streak up to 19 starts
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:09 pm ET) Braves starter Shelby Miller once again pitched very effectively, but ultimately was left without a win in the 4-0 loss to the Marlins on Monday. Miller went seven strong innings, allowing one run on six hits. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

Miller (5-12, 2.56 ERA) has not won a game in his last 19 starts, despite allowing two runs or fewer in 12 of those outings. 


Marlins' Chris Narveson impressive vs. Braves; leaves with blister
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:07 pm ET) Marlins starter Chris Narveson had a fine night on the mound against the Braves on Monday. Making his second start of the year, the left-hander allowed two hits over 5 1/3 scorless innings. He walked two and struck out three, en route to the 4-0 victory.

Narveson, who did not pitch at all in 2014, is now 2-1 with a 5.23 ERA in eight appearances with the Marlins. His outing on Monday came to an end prematurely, as he developed a blister which caused him to exit the game with 90 pitches in the sixth inning.

This start went much better for Narveson than his previous one. His last time out, he yielded seven runs on eight hits in just 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Pirates.

Mets' Michael Conforto slugs solo home run in victory Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:45 pm ET) Rookie outfielder Michael Conforto provided the spark the Mets needed in their 3-1 win over the Phillies on Monday. With the game scoreless in the fifth inning, Conforto blasted a solo home run to put the Mets out in front.

The one-out blast was Conforto's fourth home run of his young career. Conforto, who went 2 for 2 with a walk on Monday, is now batting .293 this season.


Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff strong, but suffers second loss Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Eickhoff (1-2, 2.84 ERA) kept the Mets off the scoreboard through the first four innings. But he made a couple of mistakes in the fifth--a solo home run to Michael Conforto and a two-run shot to Curtis Granderson--the led to his demise.

This was Eickhoff's third start of his young career, and he has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his outings. 


Mets RP Jeurys Familia cleans up mess for 36th save Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:41 pm ET) Mets closer Jeurys Familia gave up a run for the first time in a month, but he was able to seal the deal on the 3-1 victory over the Phillies on Monday.

Familia allowed two hits and a walk to the first three men he faced in the ninth inning. But he was able to enduce a run-scoring double play and then struck out Andres Blanco to end the game. Familia recorded his 36th save of the season.

Familia had strung together 16 consecutive scoreless outings prior to Monday's hiccup. He still owns a 1.78 ERA this season.


Mets SP Bartolo Colon dominates Phillies in win Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Colon (12-11, 4.42 ERA) is now in the midst of a 16-inning scoreless streak, spanning two starts and a one-inning relief appearance.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
