AROUND THE HORN
Phillies: LHP Adam Morgan snapped his major-league-worst streak of nine consecutive losses, OF Odubel Herrera scored three runs and the Phillies spoiled Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton’s return with a 4-3 victory Tuesday night. Morgan, who allowed five hits and one run in six innings, hadn’t won since May 10. 1B Tommy Joseph and SS Freddy Galvis each drove in two runs for the Phillies. The Marlins’ Ichiro Suzuki hit the first pinchhit home run of his career, a two-run shot in the eighth, and now has 3,019 career hits, one fewer than Rafael Palmeiro, who is 26th on the all-time list.
Tigers: RHP Jordan Zimmermann was activated from the 15-day disabled list and is scheduled to start Saturday against the Orioles. Zimmermann, who has been on the DL twice this season, is 9-5 with a 4.44 ERA in 16 starts. He gave up two home runs Monday in a rehab start for Triple-A Toledo.
Rays: Seventh-year hitting coach Derek Shelton was fired and replaced with Chad Mottola, the organization’s minor-league hitting coordinator. Mottola will join the Rays for a four-game series at Yankee Stadium. The Rays are hitting an American League-low .243 this season but rank near the top in the majors with a plus-53 run differential since the All-Star break. ... 3B Evan Longoria was in the starting lineup one day after getting hit on the right hand by a pitch from Orioles RHP Ubaldo Jimenez and leaving the game early.
Mets: 2B Neil Walker, who is recovering from back surgery, was put on the 60-day DL while seven players were called up from Triple-A Las Vegas. Included in the group is RHP Rafael Montero, who started Tuesday’s game against the Reds.
Reds: Utilityman Tony Renda and reliever Josh Smith were elevated from Triple-A Louisville for their second stints with the Reds. Renda batted .222 in 16 games last month, while Smith pitched in 21 games with a 2-1 record and 5.19 ERA from May until Aug. 29.
