Darin Ruf pinch-hit in the ninth inning and delivered a walk-off RBI single to right field, sending the Phillies to a win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Odubel Herrera led off the inning with a double and was moved to third base on a sacrifice bunt by Carlos Ruiz. Manager Bryan Price opted to have lefty Tony Cingrani pitch to Ruf rather than walk him to face Ben Revere, and Ruf made him pay. He has not been much of a force at the plate this season, batting .225/.276/.393 with three home runs and 10 RBI, but even if he were, the Phillies' crowded outfield situation leaves him on the bench more often than not anyway.

Max Scherzer was on the hook for four runs in six innings, taking the loss Tuesday as the Nationals fell to the Blue Jays 7-3.

All four runs came on two home runs hit by Kevin Pillar: a solo homer in the second, and a three-run blast in the sixth. They were two of six hits Scherzer allowed along with two walks and five strikeouts. It was the first time in five starts Scherzer had allowed more than one run. He carries a fantastic 1.85 ERA with a 0.95 WHIP and a 90/12 K/BB ratio in 77 2/3 innings. Scherzer will try again for his seventh win at home versus the Cubs in his next outing.

Marlon Byrd has been diagnosed with a fractured right wrist.

Byrd suffered the break when he was hit by a Sean O'Sullivan offering during Tuesday's game. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but more is expected to be known after he re-evaluated Wednesday. Brennan Boesch and Skip Schumaker figures to handle left field while Byrd is on the shelf.

Marco Estrada allowed three runs (two earned) in six innings of work Tuesday as the Blue Jays beat the Nationals.

Estrada had a tough task with opposing starter Max Scherzer on the hill as well, but he held the Nationals to six hits and a pair of walks while striking out five. Both earned runs scored in the fourth inning. The unearned run was Estrada's fault as he made a throwing error in the fifth. Over six starts, he has a 4.67 ERA and a 27/11 K/BB ratio spanning 34 2/3 innings. Estrada will take on the Marlins in a home start next.
Jun 2 - 10:27 PM

Jake Lamb (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Wednesday.

It's not clear how many rehab games he'll need, but Lamb has been sidelined for six weeks so it figures to be a handful. The 24-year-old has been on the disabled list since April 21 with a left foot injury. He was batting .414/.514/.690 with one homer and nine RBI through his first 10 games.
Jun 2 - 10:26 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the Nationals fell to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Harper just missed out on his 19th home run of the year with his fourth-inning double. He scored immediately, though, on Tyler Moore's double. He has been held homerless in three consecutive games for just the second time since May 6. Harper is hitting .329/.470/.718 with 43 RBI and 43 runs scored.
Jun 2 - 10:25 PM

Chris Colabello had one hit in five at-bats, extending his hitting streak to 12 games in Tuesday's victory over the Nationals.

The lone hit was an RBI single in the seventh inning, extending the Jays' lead to 5-3 and sparking a three-run frame. Colabello has been a revelation for the Jays in 108 plate appearances this season, batting .356/.402/.538 with four home runs, 14 RBI, and three stolen bases. Given his track record, we're not expecting him to maintain a .900 OPS -- or even .800 -- over the long haul.
Jun 2 - 10:22 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin confirmed that Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will be sent to the bullpen when activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Pomeranz was up-and-down in his time in the rotation before going on the DL, posting a 4.40 ERA over eight starts. Kendall Graveman has pitched pretty well since rejoining the rotation and the A's have decided to stick with him. Pomeranz can be dropped in shallower fantasy leagues.
