by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:04 am ET) Rangers starter Martin Perez had a nightmare of an outing against the Yankees on Tuesday. Staked to 5-0 lead after the first inning, Perez gave up eight runs on seven hits as part of an 11-run onslaught in the second inning. The Yankees would go on to demolish the Rangers 21-5.

Perez (0-2) pitched a scoreless first inning, but was unable to record a single out in the second. This was the left-hander's third start of the season, in what was the shortest start of his career. The eight runs allowed matches a career-high. 

Perez came into the game with a 4.91 ERA through his first two outings. After Tuesday's disaster, that number sits at 10.50.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Astros starter Collin McHugh did not have the greatest of outings on Tuesday night, but he was given ample run support and was able to survive for his 12th win of the season. McHugh went five innings, allowing five runs on seven hits in the 10-5 win over the Angels. The right-hander displayed poor control, walking four while striking out three on the night. He threw just 58 of his 93 pitches for strikes.

McHugh (12-5, 4.43 ERA) gave up two runs in the first and two runs in the second before allowing a solo home run to Chris Iannetta in the third inning. But the Astros' offense was able to rally each of those innings, and McHugh left the game with his club leading 6-5. 

It was a rough start for McHugh, but he won his third straight start, and owns a 4.16 ERA over his past five outings.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson had his worst start in over a month on Tuesday, as he allowed six runs on six hits over four innings in a 10-5 loss to the Astros. Wilson walked three and struck out three, throwing 45 of his 81 pitches for strikes. 

Wilson (8-8) was given an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but gave up a solo home run to Carlos Correa in the bottom half of the inning. The Angels scored two more for Wilson in the second, but followed that up by allowing three more runs in the bottom of that inning, including a two-run blast by Chris Carter.

He would allow two more runs in the fourth, and left the game trailing 6-5. The Astros would tack on four more later in the game, en route to the victory. 

Wilson watched his ERA rise to 3.83. He came into this start having allowed a total of eight runs in his previous four starts.


Astros' Brad Peacock likely done for the season
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock is likely done for the year, general manager Jeff Luhnow said on Tuesday. 

"Peacock we're still waiting," Luhnow said, per the Houston Chronicle. "I'm not optimistic he's going to make it back any time soon and we still don't know what the right course of action is. There's a couple different doctors working on it. There's another doctor appointment coming up. We'll have to figure out what the best path is for him, but unfortunately it looks like potentially a lost year for him."

Peacock has made one appearance this year. He's suffering from a left intercostal strain.
