Cole Hamels' location continued to be an issue on Wednesday afternoon, as he was roughed up in the Phillies' 10-4 loss to the Indians (see story).

Also, Mike Adams has pitched through injuries in the past, but the back pain he is currently dealing with is unlike any he has felt before (see story).

Here's a quick wrap of some other action from around Major League Baseball:

Ibanez homers twice in Mariners' rout of Yankees
NEW YORK -- Raul Ibanez again treated Yankee Stadium as his personal playground, hitting a grand slam and two-run homer Wednesday night to help the Seattle Mariners rout New York 12-2.

Ibanez's slam came during a seven-run first inning. Yankees backup shortstop Alberto Gonzalez got the final out in the ninth inning in his first professional pitching appearance.

Every Seattle starter had at least one of its season-high 16 hits and Jesus Montero was the only starter who failed to score a run in the Mariners' best output this year.

The Mariners chased Phil Hughes after he got only two outs in the first. Trying to preserve his bullpen, Yankees manager Joe Girardi had Brett Marshall throw 108 pitches in his big league debut, then brought in Gonzalez (see full recap).

Goldschmidt leads D'backs past Braves
PHOENIX -- Tim Hudson threw Eric Chavez a steady diet of cut fastballs and sliders Wednesday and the Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman feasted.

Chavez drove in three runs, Paul Goldschmidt hit three doubles and the Diamondbacks beat Hudson and the Atlanta Braves 5-3.

With the Diamondbacks trailing 3-1 with one out in the fifth, Jason Kubel pinch-hit for Kennedy and walked. Gerardo Parra reached on an infield hit and Didi Gregorius followed with an RBI single.

Hudson struck out Goldschmidt looking and had two strikes on Chavez before his one-time Oakland Athletics teammate doubled to left, scoring Parra and Gregorius to make it 4-3 (see full recap).

Choo's homers help Reds top Marlins
MIAMI -- Shin-Soo Choo hit two homers and four pitchers combined on an 11-hit shutout Wednesday night to help the Cincinnati Reds extend their winning streak to a season-best five games by beating Miami 4-0.

Choo hit solo homers in the fourth and sixth inning, giving him nine this season. The multihomer game was his second in eight days and ninth of his career.

Mike Leake (3-2) went 6 2-3 innings and pitched around nine hits. The Marlins had 14 baserunners but stranded 12 and hit into two double plays.

That gave the crowd of 14,866 little to cheer about, and the biggest roars came when highlights of the Miami Heat's playoff victory over the Chicago Bulls two miles away were shown on the video scoreboard (see full recap).

Cards get to Mets' bullpen in win
ST. LOUIS -- Rookie Shelby Miller followed up his nearly perfect one-hitter with 5 2-3 scoreless innings and the Cardinals scored the go-ahead run in the seventh on a wild pitch in a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets on Wednesday night.

Rick Ankiel's two-run homer off rookie Seth Maness (3-0) tied it in the top of the seventh and was his first against the team that converted the former left-handed pitcher to an outfielder in 2005.

Shaun Marcum (0-4) made it out of the fifth for the first time in four starts since beginning the year on the 15-day disabled list.

He left the game with two on and two out in the seventh and Scott Rice's wild pitch to pinch hitter Ty Wigginton allowed Daniel Descalso to score the go-ahead run (see full recap).
