White Sox ace Chris Sale entered the record books with his 10th strikeout in Tuesday night's 2-1, 11-inning win over the Cardinals, becoming just the second pitcher in Major League history to strike out 10 or more batters in eight consecutive outings. Sale is now tied with Pedro Martinez, whose string of 10-strikeout gems spanned eight starts in 1999, when he was a member of the Red Sox.
The Cubs evidently didn't need to increase their offensive output very much to end their losing streak, as one run was enough in their 1-0 win over the Mets on Tuesday at Citi Field.
It did not take the Nationals long to extend their dominance of the Braves and halt the struggles they have had against Shelby Miller. A four-run first inning provided Jordan Zimmermann more than enough support as he led Washington to a 6-1 win on Tuesday night at Turner Field.
Buster Posey hiked his RBI total for the month to 28, second-most in the Major Leagues, with his third-inning homer Tuesday off Marlins starter Mat Latos. But it was Posey's proficiency on the basepaths three innings later that proved truly impressive.
As far back as he can remember, Astros outfielder George Springer has never hit a foul pole. Until Tuesday night's blast in a 4-0 win over the Royals at Minute Maid Park.
July is here, and with it comes an opportunity for players to start fresh with a new month, or to show that a previous good month wasn't a fluke. The dog days of summer are when teams try to separate themselves from the pack and head down the home stretch.
Jordan Zimmermann was back to his Atlanta-stifling ways Tuesday night at Turner Field, just six days after he shut out the Braves over eight innings in D.C.
Mitch Moreland thought he was beat on Chaz Roe's 0-1 pitch in the eighth inning of Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Orioles, and he jogged to first expecting the ball to end up in Travis Snider's glove in left field. Instead, it ended up in the left-field stands for the Rangers' first baseman's second home run of the night, marking his second consecutive two-homer game.
Though he's constantly reminded about the growing list of accolades he's accruing, ace Dallas Keuchel maintains none of it matters after eight shutout innings in the Astros' 4-0 win over the Royals on Tuesday night.
Danny Salazar was quick to proclaim his outing in the Indians' 6-2 victory over the Rays Tuesday the best start of his season, but he was equally as quick to give some of that credit to his teammate Cody Anderson.
The Rangers reinstated outfielder Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday and optioned third baseman/outfielder Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock.
David Oritz has always been able to knock the ball out of the park at Rogers Centre. He was at it again Tuesday night as he swatted a solo shot in a 4-3 Red Sox victory over the Blue Jays.
A's right-hander Sonny Gray was hospitalized overnight with flu-like symptoms and scratched from his Tuesday home start against the Rockies.
July 2 marks the first day of the international signing period and the first day teens across the globe can sign with a Major League club.

MLB.com's Phil Rogers offers last-minute voting advice with just a few days left in All-Star Game balloting.
As we get ready to flip the calendar to July, pour one out for those poor Pittsburgh Pirates. At 16-9, they posted the National League's second-best record in June, only to lose ground to the ridiculous St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central race. An application for divisional relocation can't be far behind for Clint Hurdle's club.
Sean Manaea is back on track. The Royals' No. 2 prospect made his return to Class A Advanced Wilmington on Monday, a full 10 months after he pitched his most recent game for the Blue Rocks.
Welington Castillo doubled home Jake Lamb to trigger a four-run eighth inning as the D-backs rallied to beat the Dodgers on Monday night, 10-6, snapping Los Angeles' seven-game win streak over Arizona.
Joc Pederson hit his 20th homer of the season Monday night and trails only Wally Berger (22 in 1930) and Albert Pujols (21 in 2001) for the most homers by a National League rookie before July 1.
