7/24/2016 Starling Marte, Pit, LF
Marte went 3 for 4 with a double in the Pirates' 5-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

Analysis: Marte had cooled off a bit in July, hitting just .222, until Sunday's performance. Perhaps this will get him back on track.
7/24/2016 Nathan Eovaldi, NYY, P
Eovaldi gave up two runs while striking out six over 6 2/3 innings in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Eovaldi has gone 3-0 with a 1.37 ERA in his last five appearances, including a pair of starts.
7/24/2016 Mark Melancon, Pit, P
Melancon pitched the ninth inning to record his 30th save, the third most in the National League, in the Pirates' 5-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

Analysis: He became the first Pirates pitcher to have three consecutive seasons with 30 or more. He led the big leagues with 51 saves in 2015, and his 114 saves since the start of 2014 are the most in the majors.
7/24/2016 Jeff Samardzija, SF, P
Samardzija's struggles continued Sunday when he allowed five runs and eight hits over 5 2/3 innings in a 5-2 loss to the Yankees.

Analysis: After an outstanding start to the season, Samardzija has gone 1-2 with a 7.29 ERA over his last six outings. He's given up nine home runs over that span.
7/24/2016 Vince Velásquez, Phi, P
Velasquez gave up four runs, seven hits and matched a season high with four walks in the Phillies' 5-4 loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

Analysis: Velasquez had been 3-0 with a 1.88 ERA over his previous four starts. He's now walked four in back-to-back outings.
7/24/2016 Jameson Taillon, Pit, P
Taillon struck out seven batters in six innings Sunday against the Phillies but was also hittable at times. He surrendered four extra-base hits, including two homers, and gave up four runs in the Pirates' 5-4 win.

Analysis: Pirates manager Clint Hurdle credited Taillon's maturity for him to allow big hits early but remain focused and effective. "He made some mistakes and he paid for them, but he kept us in the game and he really didn't fold or go away,'' Hurdle said. ''He stayed on the aggression throughout the outing.''
7/24/2016 Carlos Beltrán, NYY, RF
Beltran stayed hot Sunday, going 2 for 4 with a home run in a 5-2 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Beltran is quietly having an outstanding season. He's batting .383 over his last 12 games.
7/24/2016 Buster Posey, SF, C
Posey finished with two hits and two RBIs in Sunday's 5-2 loss at Yankee Stadium.

Analysis: Posey broke out of his mini-slump after going 2 for 17 over his previous five games.
7/24/2016 Daniel Murphy, Was, 2B
Murphy went 3 for 3 with two doubles, two runs scored and two RBIs in the Nationals' 10-6 loss to the Padres on Sunday.

Analysis: Murphy's unbelievable season shows no signs of slowing down. He's hit safely in 11 straight, batting .436 with five homers, seven doubles and 17 RBIs in that stretch.
7/24/2016 Jonathan Papelbon, Was, P
Papelbon gave up four runs in the ninth inning Sunday, turning a tie game into a 10-6 Nationals loss to the Padres.

Analysis: Papelbon hadn't given up a run since June 12, but he was also pitching a third straight day. Papelbon, who hadn't pitched on three consecutive days since May 29-31, insisted he was not tired. ''I think just location,'' Papelbon said. ''Coming in there, a situation where we've got to preserve everything we can, and every pitch matters in that situation."
7/24/2016 Ryan Schimpf, SD, 3B
Schimpf went 3 for 5 with a homer and two RBIs in the Padres' 10-6 win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Analysis: Schimpf has been on fire since the All-Star break, going 11 for 28 with five homers.
7/24/2016 Lucas Giolito, Was, P
Giolito lasted only 3 1/3 innings in the Nationals' 10-6 loss to the Padres on Sunday, allowing four runs - two earned - while avoiding the decision.

Analysis: The right-hander has yet to look like the dominant prospect he is, allowing 21 baserunners in 11 innings over three starts while striking out just five.
7/24/2016 Christian Friedrich, SD, P
Friedrich gave up five runs and six hits in three innings of the Padres' 10-6 win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Analysis: Friedrich had a 2.12 ERA in his first six starts but has been a disaster in his last seven, posting a 7.86 ERA.
7/24/2016 Dae-Ho Lee, Sea, 1B
Lee's slump continued in a 2-0 loss at Toronto on Sunday as he went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts.

Analysis: Lee is 0 for 16 with seven strikeouts in his last six games after going 16 for 47 (.340) in his previous 13.
7/24/2016 Carlos Correa, Hou, SS
Correa had three hits and an RBI in the Astros' 13-3 win over the Angels on Sunday.

Analysis: That's five hits in two days for Correa, who is 12 for 31 with nine RBIs since the All-Star break.
7/24/2016 Mike Fiers, Hou, P
Fiers allowed nine hits and three runs in seven innings in the Astros' 13-3 win over the Angels on Sunday.

Analysis: Fiers got the same number of outs as he did in his previous two starts while allowing seven fewer runs.
7/24/2016 Wade Miley, Sea, P
Miley lost his sixth straight start Sunday despite a solid outing. He allowed two runs and four hits over six innings in the 2-0 loss.

Analysis: Miley has a 5.13 ERA during his six-start slide but has been supported with just six total runs in those games.
7/24/2016 Ángel Pagán, SF, CF
Pagan went 3 for 5 with a triple and a double in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees. He ended up just a home run short of the cycle.

Analysis: Pagan is batting .367 over his last seven games.
7/24/2016 Troy Tulowitzki, Tor, SS

7/24/2016 Tim Lincecum, LAA, P
Lincecum allowed seven hits and a season-high eight runs in 1 1/3 innings in his shortest outing of the season, Sunday's 13-3 loss to the Astros.

Analysis: Lincecum has been almost astonishingly bad since throwing six innings of one-run ball in his Angels debut. He has a 10.50 ERA in his six starts since, averaging four innings of work, and opponents are hitting .427 while posting a 1.249 OPS. He's allowed five homers in his last 6 1/3 innings.
