Mike Trout hit a game-tying home run on the bottom of the ninth and finished 3-for-6 with a double, a home run, three RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base against the A's on Tuesday.
Trout has now connected for three home runs over his last five games, while recording four multi-hit performances over that span. He continues to be one of the best hitters in all of baseball and is only going to get better with age. Those who drafted him with the top pick in this year's drafts have to be pleased with his performance thus far in 2014.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Red Sox have recalled Jackie Bradley Jr from Triple-A Pawtucket.
The Red Sox are in need of some depth as Shane Victorino is on the DL and with Mike Napoli nursing a bad case of the sniffles, Daniel Nava is being used at first base. Bradley may be able to audition here for a larger role and could conceivably carve something out for himself while Victorino is out, if he plays well. For now, though, he is not someone fantasy owners should be considering. Analysis: Howard Bender
Bills have exercised their fifth-year contract option on CB Stephon Gilmore.
The Bills are obviously hoping that they exercised the option on the second-half Gilmore and not the first-half guy. Over the early part of the season, Gilmore was toasted by receivers every which way, allowing 22 completions on 27 passes thrown in his direction. In the second half though, he massively improved his coverage skills and allowed just 21 completions on 42 passes thrown his way as quarterbacks made a major attempt to expose his flaws. If he can maintain where he was in the latter half of the season he should prove to be a strong defensive asset. Analysis: Howard Bender
