Raisel Iglesias notches his second victory in Atlanta’s win. (+Cuban MLB Report)

Raisel Iglesias has been a force out the bullpen for the Atlanta Braves. On the evening the right-hander from the Isle of Youth tossed a scoreless inning where he struck out two of the three batters he faced to win his second game of the season. The Braves defeated the New York Mets in extra innings and the hurler has a streak of 10.1 consecutive innings without allowing a run.

Yennier Canó notched his 13th hold of the season in Baltimore’s 6-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. The hurler from Ciego de Avila, Cuba tossed ⅔ of a scoreless inning to watch his ERA descend to 1.09 on the campaign. In 33 innings the flamethrower has struck out 33 and sports a sterling 0.67 WHIP.

Tristón Casas went yard for the 7th time on the season, drove in a run and scored on another occasion, but his best efforts could not prevent Boston from being thrashed by Cleveland 10-3. The Cuban-American slugger who hits .201 on the season also augmented his RBI total 26 on the campaign.
