by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) Mariners starter Vidal Nuno got roughed up a bit by the Astros on Monday. Nuno allowed five runs on seven hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out two, en route to the 8-3 loss.

Nuno (0-3, 3.32 ERA) had trouble keeping the ball in the park in this one. He gave up a run in the first inning. And after the Mariners tied the game in the second, Nuno allowed fourth-inning solo home runs to Jed Lowrie and Hank Conger. He also served up a two-run shot to Carlos Correa in the fifth.

Nuno pitched an inning of relief on Wednesday, and thus hadn't started a game since August 22. In five August starts, Nuno went 0-2 with a 5.27 ERA.

Red Sox RP Jean Machi overcomes shaky outing for fourth save
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) Red Sox reliever Jean Machi picked up his fourth save of the season on Monday, but it wasn't without drama. Machi entered the ninth inning with the Red Sox up by two. He allowed the first two batters to reach base safely, one of which came around to score.

But Machi was ultimately saved by a terrific catch in right field by Rusney Castillo to end the threat and close out the game, preserving the 4-3 win over the Yankees. 

Machi has been scored upon in five of his 14 appearances since joining the Red Sox at the July 31 trade deadline. He is a perfect 4-for-4 in save opportunities, however. Despite Monday's rough outing, manager Torey Lovullo is committed to Machi as his closer for the time being.
