Mariners continue hot hitting, Win 3rd straight.

St. Petersburg - The Seattle Mariners bats continued to crush the Rays on Sunday afternoon, as a huge 2nd inning led to a huge win for the M's. Brad Miller delivered the kill shot with a 3 run homer to cap the six run inning, before that the Mariners were helped by a couple Tampa errors, and an Endy Chavez 2 RBI Single. Meanwhile Hisashi Iwakuma was outstanding going eight innings before finally conceding to Danny Farquhar in the 9th to get the last three outs. The Mariners now look to complete the four game sweep tomorrow when they send Chris Young (3-5, 3.70 ERA) to the mound to face Rays ace David Price (5-5, 5.19 ERA).

Mariners comeback for another victory

St. Petersburg - The Seattle Mariners bats came alive for the second night in a row. As Corey Hart again led the charge that backed a solid Felix Hernandez performance as the Mariners won 6-2. Hart finished a triple shy of the cycle, going 3-4 with 3 RBI. Endy Chavez also added two more doubles, as he has hit well since his call up before the series. Felix meanwhile got back on track with a solid seven inning where he struck out nine, including five in a row at one point. The Mariners will look to win their third straight tomorrow as Hisashi Iwakuma (3-5, 3.73 ERA) heads to the mound to take on Jake Odorizzi (0-1, 4.91 ERA).

BOSTON, MA - Boston fans were in for a treat today with the Seattle Mariners coming to Fenway. On the mound opposite Chris Archer would be Felix Hernandez. This was going to be a rough game for Boston, and it would put even more pressure on Archer to keep them in the game.

Things started off poorly for Boston with Shane Victorino fouling up a ball to RF that turned into a Willie Bloomquist double. Robinson Cano followed it up with a double of his own to make it 1-0 right off the bat. Dustin Pedroia evened the score in the bottom of the 1st with a solo-HR and we were back at a pitchers duel.

Until the 7th Archer and Hernandez combined to allow five hits between them. Luckily for Boston, things would finally go their way in the bottom of the inning. With Will Middlebrooks on 1st David Ortiz would hammer a 2R-HR that bounded off Pesky's Pole to give the Red Sox a 3-1 lead and knock King Felix out of the game.

Big Papi... so clutch.

Archer would go 8 innings and strike out 15 Mariners, another stunning performance. Uehara would come in and easily lock up the win. Despite Archer's performance the hero of the day was Pedroia, who went 3/4 with a HR and a SB.

BOSTON, MA - With the mid-season break behind them the Red Sox opened at home with yet another NL Central foe. The Chicago Cubs limped into Boston for a four-game series, and with a 45-50 record the Red Sox and Chris Archer would be penciling in a win. Former Oakland A's pitcher Jarrod Parker, coming off a Tommy John's surgery in 2014, would start for the Cubs.

Boston opened the scoring in the first with a Jackie Bradley Jr. lead-off HR, and things looked to be on their way. Archer, his usual self, showed improved command and struck out five Cubs over the next two scoreless innings.

Parker settled down after the HR in the first and held Boston in check until the 3rd when Wellington Castillo finally got to Archer with an RBI single to tie the game. Starlin Castro followed that up with an RBI single of his own to score Castro who had advanced to second. Archer settled back into his groove, using his slider more regularly, and held off the Cubs until the 6th inning. With a man on 1st Archer hung a slider right over the plate and Justin Ruggiano stroked it to RF for an RBI double and a 3-1 lead.

Parker dominated the struggling Boston offense.

Boston just didn't have any answers today and completely wasted another Archer performance that ended in 14K. Rule 5 pick Braden Shipley came in for the 8th and 9th inning and shut out the Cubs. The Red Sox could not string any hits together and made Parker look like Clayton Kershaw. Jose Veras came in for the 9th and easily ended Boston's miserable day.

CINCINNATI, OH - Another year, another sad All-Star game for Red Sox fans, at least this year there is some contraversy. Only one Red Sox player made it to Cincinnati this year, but it really should have been two. Chris Archer was a no-brainer, and started the game, but MLB robbed Blake Swihart of a roster spot and they don't have a decent reason for doing it. Swihart, having an incredible rookie season, finished second in the votes for Catcher but was passed over for Yan Gomes who finished fourth. Jason Castro finished third, but he is Houston's only All-Star.

Archer did better his second time in Great America Ballpark.

A decent game with a little back-and-forth ending with a lengthy comeback by the AL. Archer started the game and went three innings without allowing a hit, walking one, and striking out four. After Casey Janssen allowed the NL to take a 2-0 lead in the fourth the AL game back with one run innings in the 6th and 8th. It went into the 11th when Adam Jones, the MVP, hit a solo-HR to give the AL a 3-2 win and home field advantage in October.

Hart, Cano blast Mariners to victory

St. Petersburg - The Seattle Mariners finally got the bats going in a big way on Friday night, using three home runs, and 12 hits to pound the Rays 7-4. Corey Hart did the big damage with two of the home runs, also adding a two run double. Robinson Cano got on the board as well clubbing a two run homer that put the game out of reach. James Paxton only went 4.2 innings as he had trouble locating, and the patient Rays made him make a lot of pitches to get outs. Tampa tried to crawl back in the 8th, but Dominic Leone was able to slam the door, and set it up for Rodney to pick up the save in the 9th. The two teams will be back at it tomorrow with Felix Hernandez (5-6, 2.59 ERA) taking the mound to face Jeremy Hellickson (5-1, 5.09 ERA).

M's bats put on ice in Atlanta heat, Shutout 1-0

Atlanta - Julio Teheran was electric for Atlanta, and an RBI single from the newest Brave Andre Ethier was all they needed to top the Mariners in this one. The Mariners wasted what may have been the best start of Taijuan Walker's young career, as he went 6.2 innings and struck out nine hitters, but he was out matched by Teheran, who kept Mariners hitters off balance all day, and did not allow an extra base hit in the game. The Mariners now get a day off before a four game series in Tampa Bay. It will be James Paxton (3-3, 3.56 ERA) taking on Alex Cobb (7-4, 3.99 ERA) in the opener.

Romero's pinch-hit blast powers Mariners to win

Atlanta - The Mariners had another pitching battle on their hands, once again locked up at 1-1 late after the Braves tied it in the 7th inning on a Sac Fly, but rookie Stefen Romero followed up his two hit performance Sunday with some heroics to lead off the 8th. He battled until he got a hanging pitch from Luis Avilan that he promptly belted into the left center field seats at Turner Field, and the Mariners won their 2nd straight to kick off this southeastern swing. Chris Young was excellent for the Mariners going seven strong giving up just the one run on the Sac Fly. Fernando Rodney continued his dominance coming in for a 1-2-3 9th inning with two strikeouts in the process. The Mariners look for the quick two game sweep tomorrow when they send Taijuan Walker (4-5, 4.25 ERA) to the mound to face Julio Teheran (5-4, 3.15 ERA).

BOSTON, MA - The All Star break is here and not a moment too soon for the ailing Red Sox offense. They have hit so poorly it's a wonder they win any games, but their pitching has been great, so great that the AL East is still within their grasp. It's going to be a tough run to the end of the season with five teams within 5 games of the division lead, everyone but the Yankees have a shot.

MLB Standings - Updated: Jul 16, 2015
Tampa Bay5442-
NY Yankees415613.5

The AL East has lost a little shine, losing the "hardest division" crown to the NL West for the moment. Fans can always fall back on the "they are so good they hurt eachother's records" argument, but it's hard to deny the Dodgers and Diamondbacks. LA (61-34) and Arizona (59-37) hold the best records in baseball, and if 2014 is any indication it won't change between now and the end of the season.

Mid-Season MiLB Moves

Not too many surprises down on the farm, most of the big moves have been in the works for some time. The vast majority of the moves involved bringing guys from AA Portland to AAA Pawtucket in anticipation of a shot at making the majors in 2016.

RHP Leonys Bravo : Promoted to AAA after breezing through a half-season in Portland. 12-3, 2.15ERA and 194K in 150.2IP. Time to see if he will be ready for 2016 or if 2017/18 is more likely.

1B Isaac Koufax : Nobody blocking him in Pawtucket, so Boston felt they might as well give him a shot. Glove can play at any level, but his .299BA with 18HR has really surprised evaluators.

OF Rico Berroa : Much like Koufax, nobody blocking him and can play defense in the majors right now. .291BA and 17SB were eye openers and helped him earn a promotion to AAA.

RHP Roddy Gibson : Looked better than expected through Rookie and Class A-Advanced, moves into a AA Portland rotation that was decimated by promotions to start 2015 and instantly becomes their ace. Really exciting young talent that has coaches buzzing.

CHICAGO, IL - The Red Sox headed back to the AL Central this week for a showdown with the White Sox, and they would need to keep winning if they wanted to keep things close in the East. Archer, coming off three straight games where he has struck out 14 or more would have to continue pitching well. Torii Hunter would get the nod in LF today with Mookie Betts needing a day off.

Outside of Archer, this game was pretty boring while highlighting some of Boston's issues with scoring runs. Boston opened the scoring in the 1st thanks to a throwing error that put Jackie Bradley Jr. on 2nd, and then a Xander Bogaerts single drove him in. Blake Swihart would make it 2-0 in the 2nd with an RBI double that would easily score Hunter from 3rd.

Bradley Jr. is quietly having a very good season.

Archer cruised through the White Sox hitters, walking a few but striking out most of them. Bogaerts made it 3-0 in the 5th with a solo-HR and Archer took a seat after 7IP. Archer finished the day with a single hit, 4BB, and 16K which puts him on a record shattering pace. Bradley Jr. added a solo-HR of his own in the 9th and Boston closed out the game 4-0 on another Archer gem. Bogaerts was the only Boston player that did much, going 3/5 with a HR, 2RBI, and 2SB. The Red Sox hammered out 12 hits but only managed 4 runs.
