Anthony Rendon went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's defeat of the Cubs.

He was one of three Nationals to hit solo homers off starter John Lackey. Rendon had a brutal start to the season but has been one of the better hitters in the league since then. He has his line up to .299/.404/.551 with 15 homers and 48 RBI.

Anthony Rizzo drilled a solo homer in a loss against the Nationals on Wednesday.

He took reliever Enny Romero deep in the eighth inning as the Cubs tried and failed to rally back. It was his only hit of the contest in four tries. His batting average is lagging his pace of recent years but his counting stats are on his normal trajectory. He is batting .258/.387/.505 with 18 homers, 47 runs and 50 stolen bases. His 17 stolen bases in 2015 seem like a fluke as he stole just three last year and five so far this year.

John Lackey was shelled for eight runs in 5 1/3 innings and took a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

He gave up nine hits and two walks and managed only two strikeouts. He gave up solo home runs to Anthony Rendon, Matt Wieters and Daniel Murphy. He also walked in a run in the Nationals' four-run second inning. Lackey falls to 5-9 with a 5.24 ERA after 16 starts. The 38-year-old has been markedly less effective this year than he was the last several seasons. His velocity has declined but the biggest culprit has been the longball -- he has surrendered 24 dingers already this year. He has given up more than that in a full season just three times in his 16-year career.

Yonder Alonso left Wednesday's game against the Astros with an apparent right knee injury.

Alonso was rolling on the ground in pain after he fouled a ball off his right knee in the eighth inning. After a few tentative steps to test the knee's integrity, he then left the game. The A's should pass along a more specific update as to the severity of the injury soon.

Raisel Iglesias worked around a couple of base hits in the ninth inning to earn a save in Wednesday's 4-3 defeat of the Brewers.

He allowed two singles to put runners on first and third with one out. The game ended in bizarre fashion on a strike-em-out, throw-em-out double play. The Brewers attempted a double steal with Jonathan Villar on third base and catcher Stephen Vogt on first base. Jesus Aguilar struck out on the pitch and Vogt was tagged out at second base before Villar touched the plate. Game over. Iglesias has 14 saves with a 1.64 ERA and 46 strikeouts in 38 1/3 innings.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo and catcher Jeff Mathis were ejected from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Lovullo and Mathis both took early exits after arguing balls and strikes when Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright received a borderline strike call to end the fourth inning with a runner on third base. The Cards currently hold a 3-1 lead in the fifth inning.

Adam Duvall hit a solo home run and drove in the winning run with an infield single in the eighth inning as his club downed the Brewers on Wednesday.

Many folks wrote him off as a fluke after his disastrous second half last year but he has proven them wrong with another powerful first half this year. He is batting .284/.328/.558 with 18 homers and 54 RBI.

Luis Castillo gave up two runs in 5 2/3 innings and took a no-decision versus the Brewers on Wednesday.

His second major-league start was an impressive one. Featuring triple-digit velocity he struck out nine batters, walked three and surrendered five base hits. Ryan Braun took him deep for a solo shot, and Stephen Vogt was robbed of a three-run bomb when Scott Schebler climbed the wall to make an acrobatic catch in right field in the second inning. The 24-year-old Castillo was obtained in the Dan Straily trade with the Marlins over the winter. He stands a good chance of remaining in the Reds' rotation as their staff has been decimated by injuries this year. He has a 3.38 ERA with 14 strikeouts and eight walks in 10 2/3 innings.
