MLB: Seattle 5, Phillies 2-Hisashi Iwakuma continued his stellar season Tuesday night, blanking the Phillies through eight innings as the Mariners evened the inter-league series at Citizens Bank Park.

Atlanta 11, Pirates 3-Another early deficit buried the Pirates Tuesday night as the Braves breezed to a win at PNC Park. Atlanta scored five runs in innings 2 through 4, and another five in the fifth to send the Pirates to their seventh straight loss. Francisco Liriano allowed nine runs (seven earned) in just four innings of work. The Bucs are now just two games over .500 at 64-62, and have fallen to seven games out of first in the NL Central, and two games out of the last wild card slot. The Braves and Pirates conclude the series Wednesday night.

Orioles 5, Chicago White Sox 1-Chris Tillman dominated the White Sox Tuesday night as the Orioles won in the Windy City. Tillman allowed one run and three hits and struck out nine in eight innings for the win.
