Alexi Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 14 games after going 1-for-3 in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Red Sox.

The 14-game hit streak is the longest current streak in baseball. Ramirez is now batting .415 on the season which is tops among American League hitters.ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Jason Motte picked up the save in a 5-3 win over the Cardinals in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader despite giving up a run on three hits during the top of the ninth inning.

Motte pitched in both games of Tuesdays doubleheader, and certainly looked rusty in the night cap. However, the one time St. Louis closer managed to notch his fifth save of the season for the Cubs even though some of his former teammates put the outcome in serious jeopardy during the top of the ninth inning. For now, Motte is the top option for saves in the Cubs bullpen. Analysis: Nate Miller

Dallas Beeler threw five innings during a 5-3 win over the Cardinals in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks while racking up six strikeouts.

In what will very likely amount to just a spot start, Beeler gave the Cubs about the best they should have hoped for heading into Game 2 of Tuesdays doubleheader. The 26-year-old righty is expected to head back to Triple-A Iowa, where he has pitched to an ugly 6.33 ERA and 1.60 WHIP across 58 1/3 innings so far this year. Analysis: Nate Miller

Tim Cooney worked a solid 5 1/3 innings during a 5-3 loss to the Cubs in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader, allowing just one run on three hits and a walk while striking out three.

Cooney has now put up back-to-back strong outings for the Cardinals, as he has given up just three earned runs on seven hits and three walks while collecting nine strikeouts across 11 1/3 innings during that brief span. With Jaime Garcia surprising no one with another trip to the DL, Cooney could certainly see more time in the rotation going forward. Analysis: Nate Miller

Robbie Ray worked a strong 7 2/3 innings in Tuesday’s 4-2 win over the Rangers, allowing two unearned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four.

Ray continues his solid season in Arizona, as he now sports a sensational 2.16 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 38-to-12 K/BB ratio across eight starts (50 innings). The 23-year-old lefty was a model of efficiency Tuesday night, requiring just 91 pitches (62 strikes) to get through 7 2/3 frames. Ray is looking more-and-more like a legitimate back-end option in mixed fantasy leagues. His next start is likely to come after the All-Star break. Analysis: Nate Miller

Jake Lamb went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a steal during Tuesday’s 4-2 win over the Rangers.

Lamb continues to produce for the Diamondbacks, as the young third baseman has now put together six multi-hit performances over his last 11 games. Overall during that stretch, he has hit a cool .375 (15-for-40) with seven RBI and seven runs scored.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Brad Ziegler picked up a save in Tuesday’s 4-2 victory versus the Rangers, striking out one while retiring the side in order during a scoreless bottom of the ninth.

Ziegler slammed the door for the Diamondbacks once again Tuesday night, as the veteran submariner has now converted 13-of-15 save opportunities so far this season. Zieger is riding a streak of 12 consecutive scoreless innings dating back to June 6th.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Yovani Gallardo turned in 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday’s 4-2 loss to the Diamondbacks, giving up three runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out four.

Gallardo came into Tuesdays outing as one of the leagues hottest hurlers, as he had put together 26 1/3 straight scoreless innings over his last four starts. However, the veteran righty came back down to Earth in the loss to Arizona due mostly to his erratic command. Gallardo will look to regain his control and come up with a bounce-back effort Sunday afternoon versus the Padres. Analysis: Nate Miller

Chris Iannetta went 1-for-3 with one home run, two RBI, one walk and two runs scored on Tuesday against the Rockies

Iannetta added two RBI’s while knocking one out of the park Tuesday against the Rockies. Splitting time with Carlos Perez this year, Iannetta is not really an option at catcher in most leagues. He is batting an underwhelming .193 on the year with four HR and 17 RBI.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with one home run, three RBI and two runs scored Tuesday against the Rockies

Mike Trout is being Mike Trout, putting in another solid performance on Tuesday. He hit his 22nd homer of the season while adding three RBI. He slash line now sits at .302/.396/.584 on the season which earned him the right to start in Center Field for the AL All-Star Team. You know what you are going to get out of Trout and he is definitely not disappointing.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Matt Joyce went 1-for-3 with one home run, one RBI and one run scored Tuesday against the Rockies

Matt Joyce connected on a home run in the 10-2 win over the Rockies on Tuesday. He now has five home runs through 74 games. In his last seven days he is 5-for-15 with one home run, one RBI and four runs scored.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Albert Pujols went 1-for-5 with one home run, three RBI and one run scored Tuesday against the Rockies

Pujols found out he would be starting in the All-Star Game for the injured Miguel Cabrera and he had a nice night to ensure fans that he was the right choice. He went 1-for-5 with a three run homer for his 26th of the season. In 80 games this year, Pujols is putting together one of his best seasons in recent memory. He is hitting .264 with the 26 home runs and 56 RBI. It is nice to see the machine hitting like the old Albert again.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin
