Nelson Cruz knocks 30th home run Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Orioles designated hitter Nelson Cruz went 2 for 5 with a two-run home run in his team's 10-3 win over the Cardinals Saturday.

Cruz has seen his home-run pace slow over the last month, with Saturday's blast just his second home run since July 7. Even so, he's one off the major-league lead with 30 home runs. Cruz has hit .259/.329/.511 with 79 RBI in 436 at-bats.

Nelson Cruz sits for first time since mid-April
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mired in a 1-for-28 slump, Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz was held out of the starting lineup Sunday against the Mariners for the first time since April 13. It was just the second time all season he did not start.

Cruz's offensive woes, unfortunately, have extended more than just a week. Since totaling three consecutive multi-hit games from July 5-7, Cruz is batting .110 (8 for 73) with one home run and two RBI in his last 20 games.

"They're not getting him out. He's getting himself out mostly," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNsports.com. "It's so tough. You get down 1-2, you just miss a pitch, you hook a ball foul you might normally have kept fair because you're a little quick with your front hip. Then all of a sudden, you battle and you lay off a slider down in the dirt. Now it's 2-2. You lay off another slider in the dirt and it's 3-2. And just can't quite finish off the at-bat.

"It's happened some with Adam (Jones) and all our guys. They're wanting to do what they're capable of doing so bad. You want to start swinging the bat better again. You want to be back up around .300 again. Let's face it, it's impossible to do it unless you get a hit, unless they change the rules and you get a hit for a walk."
