  • Khris Davis mashes solo homer in wild win
    Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Davis cracked a solo homer off Giants starter Albert Suarez in the fourth inning. At the time, it drew the A's to within 2-1. Pitcher's duel? Not so fast, my friend. The two teams would combine to score 21 additional runs through to the end of the game. For his part, Davis is now slashing .253/.291/.509 with 19 homers and 53 RBI across 265 at-bats. Yesterday, 11:57 pm
  • Suarez surrenders three runs to Athletics
    Albert Suarez surrendered three runs on three hits over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the A's.

    Advice: Suarez struck out five and walked three on the evening. The A's would score one run against him in the fourth inning and two more in the sixth. With Matt Cain (hamstring) set to begin a rehab assignment, the 26-year-old Suarez's time as a starter could be limited. Yesterday, 11:45 pm
  • Graveman yields four runs to Giants
    Kendall Graveman was unable to secure a quality start in Tuesday's no-decision against the Giants, allowing four runs on nine hits over five innings.

    Advice: Graveman entered Tuesday having surrendered two or fewer runs in his last three outings, but he was unable to find such success against the Giants, as they scored twice in the third inning and twice in the fourth. He will carry a 4.84 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 55/27 K/BB ratio (80 innings) into a home start against the Pirates next time he toes the rubber. Yesterday, 11:38 pm
  • Jake Lamb crunches homer, triple in loss
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Lamb's seventh-inning solo homer off David Hernandez boosted the Diamondbacks to a 3-2 advantage. They held that until the ninth inning, but the Phillies would come back with two runs in that frame to overcome the deficit. For the season, Lamb is slashing a strong .286/.366/.584 with 18 doubles, 16 homers and 52 RBI over 255 at-bats. The 25-year-old third baseman is plenty deserving of All-Star consideration. Yesterday, 11:28 pm
  • Eickoff limits Diamondbacks to two runs
    Jerad Eickhoff turned in a decent performance in Tuesday's no-decision against the Diamondbacks, surrendering two runs on seven hits over five-plus innings.

    Advice: The Phillies held a scant 2-1 advantage heading into the sixth inning, but Eickhoff coughed up a game-tying solo homer to Yasmany Tomas to lead off the frame. The 25-year-old right-hander struck out six and walked three on the evening. He will carry a 3.38 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into an Independence Day home date with the Braves next time he toes the rubber. Yesterday, 11:18 pm
  • Chris Davis hits solo homer, double in win
    Chris Davis went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Davis struck for a solo home run to lead off the sixth inning. That was just a throat-clearing for the rest of the frame, as the Orioles would score six more times before the Padres managed to extricate themselves from the mess. Over his last five games, Davis has driven in 10 runs. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .247/.359/.517 with 19 homers and 52 RBI across 271 at-bats. Yesterday, 11:17 pm
  • Myers connects for three-run homer in loss
    Wil Myers went 1-for-2 with a three-run homer, a steal and three walks in Tuesday's 11-7 loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Myers launched his three-run homer in the seventh inning. He has been nothing short of phenomenal in the month of June, swatting 11 homers and driving 31 runs this month alone. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .284/.343/.530 with 18 homers, 53 RBI and 11 steals across 296 at-bats. Yesterday, 11:10 pm
  • Johnson allows pair of homers in loss
    Erik Johnson wasn't particularly impressive in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles, surrendering four runs on seven hits over five innings.

    Advice: Johnson struck out just two on the evening. Three of the four runs on his line came home via a pair of home runs, with Adam Jones jacking a solo shot in the first inning and Hyun-soo Kim cracking a two-run shot in the fifth. Through six starts, the 26-year-old right-hander holds a tough 9.15 ERA and 1.88 WHIP. A road date with the Diamondbacks shows next on his schedule, but there is no fantasy intrigue here. Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Correa launches three-run homer vs Angels
    Carlos Correa was a monster in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Angels, finishing 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and four total RBI.

    Advice: Correa jumped the Astros out to a 3-0 lead when he smacked a three-run homer off Tim Lincecum in the first inning. He would drive in his fourth run of the game with an RBI ground out in the seventh inning. The 21-year-old phenom has been scalding the ball of late and has picked up five doubles in his last 10 games. In that same space, he has driven in 14 runs. For the season, Correa is slashing .265/.363/.474 with 13 homers, 47 RBI and eight steals across 283 at-bats. Yesterday, 10:54 pm
  • Feldman pitches well in spot start vs Angels
    Scott Feldman did a nice job in Tuesday's win over the Angels, allowing one unearned run on three hits over five innings.

    Advice: Feldman earned the start in place of Lance McCullers (blister). He struck out two without walking a batter. Depending on whether McCullers is able to recover in time for his next start, Feldman could see at least one more spot outing. The veteran right-hander has been used, for the most part, as a bullpen arm and holds a 2.76 ERA with a 34/13 K/BB ratio across 49 frames. Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Lincecum allows five runs while fanning seven
    Tim Lincecum struck out seven and yielded five runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Lincecum surrendered a three-run homer to Carlos Correa in the first inning, but mostly settled in after that bomb. After striking out just two in each of his first two starts, Lincecum's seven strikeouts on Tuesday stand as his season-high. His off-speed stuff, in particular, looked sharp. The veteran right-hander also walked four and exited the proceedings having thrown 101 pitches (55 strikes). After limiting the A's to one run over six innings in his mid-June season-debut, Lincecum has surrendered nine runs in his last two outings (7 1/3 innings). He will look to keep the fireworks to a minimum in a July 4 road date with the Rays next time he toes the rubber. Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Nelson Cruz swats two-run homer in victory
    Nelson Cruz went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Cruz crushed a two-run shot off Pirates starter Jonathon Niese in the fifth inning. The dinger was his 20th of the season. In addition to that lofty mark, the veteran slugger is slashing a stupendous .284/.367/.537 and has driven in 53 runs. On the micro level, he has homered in back-to-back contests. Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Niese proves ineffective in loss to M's
    Jon Niese failed to impress in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, yielding five runs (four earned) on nine hits over 4 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Niese surrendered a pair of solitary runs in the third and fourth innings before coughing up a three-spot in the fifth. He struck out just two (against two walks) on the evening. The 29-year-old southpaw will carry a difficult 5.07 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into a road showdown with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber. Yesterday, 10:18 pm
  • Lucroy has two doubles, two RBI vs. Dodgers
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Lucroy hit a two-run double in the eighth inning to pull the Brewers within two runs, but the comeback wasn't to be. Despite the team's lack of success, the 30-year-old is having a fine offensive season. Lucroy now has 38 RBI and 38 runs scored to go with a .302/.360/.504 line through 71 games. Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Matt Harvey gets loss in rain-delayed game
    Matt Harvey was stuck with a loss after allowing one run over 3 2/3 frames against the Nationals.

    Advice: Harvey wasn't pitching particularly well, as he had given up four hits and walked three. However, he surely had a lot more in him but was pulled following a rain delay of nearly an hour and a half. It was Harvey's 10th loss of the season, which leads the National League. He'll face the Cubs on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Bryce Harper homers as Nats take down Mets
    Bryce Harper doubled and ripped a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Harper lined a Jerry Blevins offering into the right-field bullpen with one out in the fifth inning. It was his 16th longball of the season but just his third in June. The reigning National League MVP is sporting a disappointing .258 average but has made up for it and then some with a .403 on-base percentage. Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Jon Lester allows one run over 7 2/3 frames
    Jon Lester had to settle for a no-decision but was excellent Tuesday, holding the Reds to one run over 7 1/3 innings in a 7-2 extra-innings victory.

    Advice: Lester held the Reds off the scoreboard until Billy Hamilton slugged a solo home run to lead off the eighth inning. He recorded only four strikeouts but wound up allowing just three hits and one walk on the night. Lester lost out on a win when Hector Rondon blew a save, but it was another stellar outing in what has been an excellent season. He'll bring a 2.03 ERA into New York against the Mets on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • John Lamb pitches well in no-decision
    John Lamb struck out seven while holding the Cubs to two runs over six frames in Tuesday's extra-innings loss.

    Advice: Lamb was headed for a loss despite pitching well before the Reds tied things up with two outs in the ninth on a Eugenio Suarez RBI single. The left-hander yielded six hits and walked one. Lamb has been inconsistent since returning from the disabled list and has a disappointing 41 strikeouts over 58 2/3 frames. He'll get the Nationals on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Javier Baez smacks grand slam Tuesday
    Javier Baez was hitless in his first six trips to the plate but launched a grand slam in his seventh at-bat in the 15th inning of Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Now that's how you turn your night around. Baez lifted a JJ Hoover offering over the center field wall, giving the Cubs some cushion in the extra-inning marathon. The free swinger is hitting just .256/.301/.430 with 40 strikeouts over 172 at-bats, but he's slugged seven homers. Yesterday, 9:03 pm

  • Billy Hamilton homers in loss to Cubs
    Billy Hamilton ripped a solo homer in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Hamilton broke up Jon Lester's shutout with a solo shot to lead off the eighth inning. The Reds then tied things up in the ninth before eventually falling in the 15th. The dinger was Hamilton's lone hit on the night. Yesterday, 9:00 pm
