Indians pitcher Justin Masterson is American League Player of the Day. Masterson threw a complete-game 1-0 shutout against the White Sox, striking out seven and giving up only one walk and five hits. Masterson now leads all players in Box-Toppers points for the 2013 season with 4.7.

Daniel Murphy of the Mets was National League Batter of the Day. Murphy went 4-for-5 and drove in four runs in the 16-5 win over the Twins.

No AL batter was named Player of the Game, so no bonus points were awarded Friday for AL Batter of the Day.
