    MLB's delicate balance with big data

    Technologies that track player performance are the next frontier in baseball's analytic revolution. But the ever-growing quantification of things never tracked is now forcing MLB to balance big data with "big brother," Rian Watt writes.

Reds' rally ends with Suarez getting thrown out at third for the final out, left-handed hitter at the plate. Not good.

In Toronto, Darwin Barney joins this distinguished group of recent position-player losing pitchers: Leury Garcia, Casper Wells, Darnell McDonald, Joe Mather. Good group!

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

What a win for the Indians, beating the Blue Jays in 19 innings to set a franchise record with their 14th win in a row. Trevor Bauer, tomorrow's scheduled starter, got the win with five scoreless innings in relief as the Indians' pitching continues to dominate. Team of destiny? 1948 was a long time ago.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Indians win 2-1, in 19 innings; that's 14 straight. Great work by Trevor Bauer and the Indians' other pitchers.

SportsCenter @SportsCenter

UPDATE: Carlos Santana leads off the top of the 19th with a solo home run. Indians lead Blue Jays, 2-1.

SportsCenter @SportsCenter

18 innings and 18 pitchers later, the Indians and Blue Jays are tied, 1-1. Darwin Barney is pitching for TOR in the 19th.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Let's play three! Mike Napoli makes a nice play with a runner in scoring position to end the 18th. Blue Jays infielder Ryan Goins is out after one inning with Darwin Barney coming in. Hard to believe the Jays didn't use a starter, like the Indians have done with Trevor Bauer.

With the #Marlins no facial hair Policy it's going to be interesting to see if newly acquired Fernando Rodney shaved his beard.

Jason Day officially opens 67-69. Will own the lead going into the weekend. Cavs, Indians, Jason Day. Ohio never loses anymore.

Canada Day has turned into Canada Day And Night at the Rogers Centre: 16th inning. CLE has 1st, 3rd, nobody out.
