Diamondbacks’ Greinke spins seven solid innings in loss

Zack Greinke allowed one run on three hits over seven innings in a loss against the Phillies on Tuesday. Greinke struck out four batters, but also matched a season-high with four walks. The lack of control was uncharacteristic considering he had only issued 25 free passes over 142 2/3 innings all year entering this outing. Nick Williams solo homer leading off the third inning represented the only tally against the right-hander. The 34-year-old veteran is 12-7 with a 2.89 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 152/29 K/BB ratio in 24 starts.

Rangers’ Colon picks up win over Mariners

Bartolo Colon snapped a five-start losing streak after allowing four runs through seven innings in a win over the Mariners on Tuesday. The Rangers are lacking rotation options, so Colon is most likely safe for the season, even though he's pitched to a 6.72 ERA since the beginning of June. he's 6-10 with a 5.18 ERA overall.
