Domonic Brown homered and Aaron Harang snapped his losing streak at eight starts, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night. Carlos Ruiz had two RBIs and every Phillies starter had at least one hit as they won their 10th game in the 12 since the All-Star break. Harang (5-11) was making his first start since going on the disabled list on July 2 with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

While the return is unknown, it is likely to involve a number of prospects, the currency that placed the Rangers among the favorites in recent weeks as Philadelphia upped its efforts to trade him.

Take a look around the league with Big League Stew’s daily wrap up. We’ll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. The Oakland Athletics may be selling off parts, but pitcher Sonny Gray is here to stay. The right-hander was excellent during a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday. [ Play a Daily Fantasy contest for cash today! ] Gray was so good that the Athletics didn’t need to use any other pitcher during the contest. He went the distance, giving up just three hits during a complete game shutout. Gray struck out nine and walked one during the performance.  It was Gray’s fourth career shutout. Two of those have come this month. That’s Gray’s second shutout this month. — Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) July 29, 2015 Gray apparently wasn’t satisfied with just dominating on the mound. He actually picked up his first major-league hit during the contest. Gray singled on a 96 mph fastball from Pedro Baez to open the eighth inning. Though he had an outside chance at a double, Gray showed excellent awareness, opting not to test Yasiel Puig’s arm. Gray, who had been sharing a bat with Scott Kazmir all season, used one of Billy Butler’s bats for the hit. Though he said it was too heavy, Butler told Gray he could keep the bat. Gray used Butler’s bat for his hit. Says it was way too heavy. Butler says he can keep it. — Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) July 29, 2015 Gray improved to 11-4 with the win. The Athletics are currently 45-56, which puts them in last place in the American League West. YANKEES EXPLODE FOR 21 RUNS The New York Yankees came to play Tuesday night. The club exploded for 21 runs during a blowout of the Texas Rangers. Though New York eventually wound up on top, things didn’t look so rosy early. Starter Chris Capuano couldn’t make it out of the first inning, giving up five runs.  [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] It didn’t take long for the Yankees to strike back. In the second inning, the team scored an incredible 11 runs. Six different players accounted for run-scoring hits in the frame. Both Chase Headley and Brendan Ryan each had two run-scoring hits. While the output of the second inning wouldn’t be topped, the Yankees didn’t let up. The club scored four more runs in the third, three in the sixth and two in the ninth. Pretty much every player on the team turned in a big offensive game. Four Yankees had at least three RBIs, two walked three times and six wound up scoring multiple runs. With the win, New York improved to 57-42 on the year. SYNDERGAARD LOOKS SUPER New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard is nicknamed after a superhero, and now he’s starting to pitch like one. Syndergaard was fantastic during the club’s 4-0 win over the San Diego Padres. Syndergaard tossed eight shutout innings, giving up just three hits during the contest. He struck out nine and did not issue any walks. The rookie has been on a tremendous run lately. Over his last six starts, he’s allowed just six earned runs. Syndergaard has started throwing a slider more often during his last two starts, so that could be a reason for his recent success. While he’s been great lately, it’s tough to argue against Tuesday being his best start of the season. Syndergaard had a perfect game entering the seventh inning. That was broken up by a Will Venable single to lead off the frame. With the win, the Mets improved to 52-48 on the season. THE WHITE SOX WON’T LOSE The Chicago White Sox are certainly making things interesting at the trade deadline. The club ripped off another win Tuesday, picking up the 9-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox. With the victory, the team now has a six-game winning streak. Due to the club’s recent success, some are starting to wonder whether pitcher Jeff Samardzija will actually be dealt at the deadline. Better chance of Tigers trading Price than White Sox trading Samardzija, as I just said on @FOXSports1 #MLBWhipAround . — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 29, 2015 Though the White Sox’s record is just 48-50, the club remains 3.5 games out of the second wild card spot. Given how horrible they’ve looking to open the year, that’s pretty shocking. [ Check out Big League Stew on Tumblr for even more baseball awesomeness. ] The White Sox have two more games against Boston before the trade deadline. If they can continue to extend their winning streak, they may not sell like everyone expected. Want to see more from Tuesday’s slate of games?  Check out our scoreboard .

The New York Yankees more than doubled a big inning by the Texas Rangers. New York had 11 runs and 10 hits in the second inning Tuesday night after Texas had taken a 5-0 lead in the first. The Yankees sent 15 batters to the plate, and Mark Teixeira was the only one without a hit in the big inning.

Alex Rodriguez is hitting home runs in his 40s, just like he did as a teenager. A-Rod marked his 40th birthday Monday night by homering for the New York Yankees against Texas, the team that gave him his first huge contract. Rodriguez doesn’t remember any clubhouse conversations as a young player about still being in the game at 40 years old.

Home run titles are no different to Mike Trout than any of the other awards and achievements that have made him a major league star. Trout had a grand slam and a solo shot among his season-high four hits Sunday, powering the Angels to a 13-7 victory over the Texas Rangers and raising his major league-leading home run total to 31. ”I don’t look at that stuff,” Trout said.

The Texas Rangers don’t feel they are out of the AL West race, which appeared up until now to be a two-team race between the Los Angeles Angels and Houston Astros. Delino DeShields capped a three-run rally in the eighth inning with an infield hit that drove in the go-ahead run, and Rougned Odor homered in a 7-6 victory Saturday night. Joe Smith (4-3) came on to protect a 6-4 lead for Angels starter Hector Santiago, but didn’t make it out of the eighth.
