Kevin Pillar accounted for one of the Toronto Blue Jays’ four hits in their 6-0 shutout at the hands of the visiting Cleveland Indians. Sorry, no highlight reel defensive plays in this one as h. The Jays are 12-21.
Ryan Braun doubled (#6) in four at-bats and scored a run for the Milwaukee Brewers (17-16) in an 11-7 win over the visiting Boston Red Sox. Here’s an interesting story about the new 10-day disabled list (it used to be 15 days). When a player has a relatively mild injury — not enough to warrant putting him on the 10-day list — how can that affect a team’s make-up?
Alex Bregman hit his first triple of the year for the Houston Astros (22-11), drove in one, and scored another in their 8-3 win over the visiting Atlanta Braves.
Danny Valencia was 0-for-4 with two walks as the Seattle Mariners (16-17) battled back from a five run deficit to beat the host Philadelphia Phillies, 10-9.
Joc Pederson was 1-for-5 as the LA Dodgers (19-14) beat the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-3, in 10 innings. Dodgers’ starting pitcher Jose Urias no-hit the Pirates for six innings.
Contrary to expectations, Ian Kinsler did not return to the Detroit Tigers (16-15) on Tuesday. They beat the host Arizona Diamondbacks, 7-3.
Scott Feldman did not appear for the Cincinnati Reds (18-15) in their 5-3 win over the visiting NY Yankees. Craig Breslow did not make it into the Minnesota Twins’ 7-2 win over the host Chicago White Sox. The Twins are 16-14.
