Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta is Tuesday's Player of the Day. Peralta pitched a complete-game, three-hit shutout in the 2-0 win over the Reds.
Adrian Beltre of the Rangers is American League Player of the Day. Beltre hit two home runs, drove in five runs and went 4-for-4 in the 8-4 win over the Orioles.
Justin Upton of the Braves is National League Batter of the Day. Upton homered and went 3-for-5 in the 6-4 win over the Marlins.
Standings update: Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright rises to sixth place among players in Box-Toppers points for the season (see the updated Top 10 list on the home page).

Wainwright and Peralta had identical 8.0 Box-Toppers game scores, but Peralta broke the tie and earned Player of the Day honors (and an extra Box-Toppers point) because he had more innings pitched.
