Doug Padilla @ESPNChiSox

Samardzija done for the day anyway, but took the liner off his body (possibly right arm) on his last pitch, records out at 1B. 7IP, 7H, 2R.

Jesse Rogers @ESPNChiCubs

Yep. Reynolds double makes it 5-4, 2nd and third. That's 18 runs given up in the 6th in 25 games and counting...

Reds move back to .500

Marlon Byrd drove in four runs and Todd Frazier slugged his 9th homer to power the Reds to a 7-1 rout of the Pirates. Cincinnati moved to 13-13, while Pittsburgh has dropped four in a row. Box score


Andrew Marchand @AndrewMarchand

Headley didn't play defense in the 9th because his back was a little sore. Girardi said it is not a big deal & expects Headley to play Weds

Shelby Miller blanks Phillies

The Braves' starter struck out eight and gave up just three hits in his third career shutout as Atlanta cruised past Philadelphia 9-0. Freddie Freeman and Kelly Johnson homered in the win.


Carpenter going the extra distance

Matt Carpenter's game-tying, three-run homer was his MLB-leading 20th extra-base hit this season. He's the first Cardinals player with 20 extra-base hits in the team's first 26 games of a season since Stan Musial in 1954. Follow live

Betts helps Red Sox snap four-game skid

Mookie Betts crushed two home runs over the Green Monster -- the first homer broke up Drew Smyly's no-hit bid -- for the game's only runs as Boston slipped past Tampa Bay 2-0.


Kansas City Royals @Royals

The home run was the first allowed by Kelvin Herrera since July 26, 2013. His 105.1 innings since that date is a club record for relievers.

Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN

Bartolo Colon has a 34.1 IP streak without issuing a walk. That's 3rd-longest in #Mets history. Saberhagen 47.2 (1994) & Hillman 38.2 ('93).

Mets have won seven straight games vs. Orioles, longest active streak vs. any AL club for the Amazin's.

Colon beats Orioles again

Bartolo Colon (7.2 IP, ER, 9 K) became the first pitcher to beat the same opponent with seven different teams as the Mets held off the Orioles 3-2. New York has been shut out 1-0 in its previous two games.
