Rays win again
The Rays have surpassed the Red Sox, and that means that they have won seven straight now. They are also eight games over .500, which is their best such mark since the end of June of the 2015 season. They won the first two games of their three games against Boston, and after their last encounter they have won three games in a row against the Red Sox with 90 wins.
Even the Rays Take These first two games of the series at St. Pete, ensured that Boston will lose its first series as they dropped two of three on the Yankees from June 29 to July 1. Since then, the Red Sox 10-0-4 had been in series until they got into the billowing rays. In this one, four Tampa Bay enthusiasts combined for four perfect innings, and Tommy Pham married for the first time since taking over the Rays on July 31 …
That's 423 feet to center. However, the SportsLine projection model ( @SportsLine on Twitter), which falls into disrepair on Saturday, has less than a 1.0 percent chance of making the postseason. This is a reflection of AL's top-heavy style this season and the high bar for junior circuit competition. Still given how much veteran talent the Rays have handled away from the last offseason, a .531 win percentage in this late year feels like a real achievement.
As for the Red Sox, they have dropped five of their last seven.
Dodgers win, but Jansen's battles continue
The Dodgers summoned Kenley Jansen closer to hold a 4: 3 lead over the Padres in ninth, but an Austin Hedges-Homer has tied him up. So Jansen blew another rescue and Clayton Kershaw missed a win. Since returning from a heart problem, Jansen has now allowed five runs (and four homeruns) in four innings and blown three direct save opportunities. At the same time, he saw his ERA rise from 2.15 to 2.83.
Jansen's bouts remain a concern for the Dodgers, but they managed to win the game in the 12th. However, at first the lights went out at Dodger Stadium, causing a delay …
Just moments after the game resumed, Justin Turner "doubled" with a flat pop-up, and Matt Kemp rushed home with the run of victory ,
Holliday Homers for Rockies
The Rockies won the Cardinals 9-1 on Saturday night in Denver. However, when the game was still very doubtful, veteran Slugger married Matt Holliday for the first time since the Rockies had accepted him into active duty roster. Doubly sweet was that it came against the team for whom he spent seven or more seasons …
This is career hope number 315 for Holliday. Holliday, of course, came with the Rockies, and this is the first time he has been married in a Colorado uniform in a whole decade.
M & # 39; s Back on D-Backs
The Mariners went 3-1 in Arizona in the ninth phase. They clashed over two runs with two outs and then came through in the 10th Denard Span …
In the home half Edwin Diaz could hold the 50th season of the season. The Diamondbacks and Rocky Mountains are now on the top of NL West.
Astros win again, but Ohtani squats Verlander
The reigning champions and current leaders of AL West won their fourth game in a row and have risen to 99 again -win pace. Along the way, Stealth MVP candidate Alex Bregman hit the base in his 44th consecutive street game, which is the longest current series in the MLB. Speaking of stripes, Houston starter Justin Verlander came in this one who has turned 23 consecutive goalless innings at Angels Stadium. This streak was at 26 o'clock when two-way Phenom Shohei Ohtani came on the field in the fourth game …
This is Ohtani's 14th home game of the season. However, the Astros prevailed, claiming their 1 1/2 lead over Oakland.
Indians fall Fourth Straight
With the Tribe losing to the Royals on Saturday, they have now lost four straight. That combines their longest dry spell of the season. Despite one of the worst offenses in baseball, Ace Corey Kluber allows five runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings. On the other hand, Heath Fillmyer allowed only one run in six innings. Thanks to the loss of the Twins, the Indians remain 12 games in the AL Central.
Fiers continues to thrive for Oakland
Righty Mike Fiers has made his fourth start since he was traded to the Athletics from Detroit and the results were once again good …
Fiers has to do in these four races a 1.50 ERA with 28 strikeouts against only three hikes in 24 innings. That's the dominance, to say the least, and it remains puzzling that the A & # 39; s could land such a low-priced veteran starter during the retirement period.
As for the A & # 39; s, they remain in possession of the second AL wildcard spot and in the immediate vicinity of the Astro in the AL West.
Andujar joins Rookie of the Year Fall
Shohei Ohtani and Gleyber Torres are the big names, but when the season ended today, Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar might just steal the AL rookie of the year. Andujar is stepping up his case with a big afternoon in the first match of Saturday's double header at Camden Yards, going 2-for-5 with a home run and 4 RBI. Going into Saturday, Andujar hit .297 / .328 / .521 (124 OPS +) with 58 extra-base hits (36 doubles, two triples, 20 homers). No other rookie had more than 42 extra base hits. Andujar leads all newcomers with 70 RBI – Torres is a distant second with 56 RBI – and he beats .319 / .343 / .638 as New York's home cleaning hitter in August, while Aaron Judge (wrist) and Gary Sanchez (groin) are marginalized , He got up when the Yankees needed him the most. Speaking of which, the Yankees swept their Saturday doublehead against the Orioles.
Starter J.A. Happ and Sonny Gray played well and Andujar took two more punches into the nightcap.
Morales Homer's in Sixth Straight Game
Another day, another home run for Blue Jays bat Kendrys Morales. Saturday's two-game run gives Morales a homer in six consecutive games and ties the franchise record of Jose Cruz Jr. Cruz did it in 2001.
Here is the video from Morales' last thing:
Morales is the first player ever to play in six games in a row. .. Matt Carpenter last month. Carpenter has melted hot for weeks, never more than in July. Morales is the first player in the American League to have played six games in a row since Chris Davis in 2012.
As far as this game is concerned, it was a painful loss for the Phillies. They led 6-3 in the bottom of the seventh, but the Jays scored two in seventh and three in eighth to win. Seranthony Dominguez was given three runs while recording only two outs. The Phillies are now only 10-12 in August.
Baez remains hot while Cubs fourth straight win
The Cubs stomped the Reds on Saturday, and the focus of this effort was Infielder and NL MVP candidate Javier Baez. Baez led the NL in the RBI and the entire bases, and then he went out and went 2-for-4 with a walk and his 28th homer of the season …
Baez has now hoarded games in three of the last four , and he beats .297 / .329 / .579. Combine that power with his plus fielding at second base (he's currently shortstop) and appreciate the base, and he was one of the most complete baseball players of the season.
The Cubs have now won four straight, which means they are able to keep some distance between themselves and the hard-working Cardinals at NL Central.
Nats flashed again
The Nationals, which were not far from their sell-out period, were wiped out by Zack Wheeler and the Mets on Saturday. This means that the Nats have been eliminated in three consecutive games for the first time in the franchise's history since moving to DC. This is also the 14th time this season that Washington has been eliminated, and they are now under two .500 games for the first time in over a month. As for Wheeler, he has allowed four runs in the last six races.
