When Ken Giles started out 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA in April, that big trade with the Phillies looked worse than the Astros just giving up a lot of young talent to get him. Giles has recovered from that terrible start, has taken over as closer and has dominated the past two months with 39 K's in 19.1 innings. He closed out Tuesday's 3-1 win.

Bullpen burns the Red Sox again, ninth-inning rally comes up short in a 4-3 loss to the Rays. Boston misses a chance to gain a game on the division-leading Toronto Blue Jays, who maintain a two-game lead in the AL East. Second-place Sox are one game ahead of the Baltimore Orioles.

Why yes, it does seem strange the umpires are waiting for someone sitting in a room somewhere to tell them the replay outcome while the players watch it on the scoreboard and know what the call ultimately will be.

The Cubs' Kyle Hendricks departs for a pinch-hitter after seven shutout innings against the Pirates. He's allowed two runs or fewer in six straight starts, three or fewer in 18 straight, and no more than four all season. His 2.09 ERA now leads San Francisco's Madison Bumgarner by 0.40 for the MLB lead.

Two great plays by Brett Gardner saved Masahiro Tanaka some potential damage in the fifth. First he gunned down the Royals' Alcides Escobar trying to stretch a leadoff single into a double, and then robbed the very next hitter, Christian Colon, of an extra-base hit with a leaping catch at the left-field fence to preserve the Yankees 4-2 lead.

Of Curtis Granderson's 22 homers this season, his seventh-inning shot against the Marlins on Tuesday was only his third with a man on base. It's crazy to have 22 homers and 38 RBIs, no?

John Farrell, from earlier today, on using longtime starter Clay Buchholz as a setup man: "I want Clay to feel like that's his place in this bullpen right now." A few hours later, in his first truly high-leverage opportunity as a setup man, Clay Buchholz gives up a tie-breaking solo homer to Evan Longoria that clears everything in left field.

The Orioles beat the Blue Jays in a battle of Cy Young contenders - kind of. J.A Happ and Zach Britton were never in the game at the same time, but Happ started for Toronto (6.1 IP, 3 ER, ND) and Britton finished for Baltimore, collecting his 39th save in 39 tries as the Birds won 5-3 to move within three games of the Jays.
