Jake Peavy allowed three runs(one earned) on six hits while walking one and striking out five over seven innings as the Giants fell to the Rockies 3-2.
Peavy fell to 2-4 since being dealt to the Giants despite allowing three runs or less in five of his first six starts with his new team. He is now sitting on a 4.31 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 26 starts between the Red Sox and the Giants while owning a 128:55 K:BB rate over 163.2 innings. After allowing 20 home runs as a member of the Red Sox, Peavy has given up just two home runs since July 27, so he has clearly taken the steps in the right direction, which makes him a solid pick up for the stretch run, even if his record doesn't indicate it. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Brewers on Saturday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Stephen Piscotty went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday’s 6-4 loss to the Cubs.
Things definitely looked promising for the Cardinals when Piscotty gave the team an early 2-0 lead with with one swing of the bat in the top of the first inning. However, the offense largely dried up for the Cardinals after that and their season is now done. Piscotty was simply outstanding in this NLDS, going 6-for-16 with three homers, a double, six RBI and five runs scored. The sweet-swinging rookie has quickly made a name for himself in St. Louis and around the league. Analysis: Nate Miller
Ravens cut CB Rashaan Melvin on Tuesday.
Melvin started some games late last year for Baltimore, including some playoff games. But after being injured in the preseason and getting benched at halftime of Week 3, he just lost favor with the coaching staff. This isn't your run-of-the-mill no name being cut, so the Ravens are shaking things up a bit. Analysis: Brett Talley
