Tyler Austin went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Monday's win over the White Sox.

Austin lofted a sacrifice fly as part of a three-run fourth by the Yankees. In his next at-bat, he smashed a screaming liner into the left field bullpen for a solo dinger off David Holmberg with one out in the sixth inning. That was his first homer since being called up on June 24. He had gone 1-for-7 with three strikeouts in the two games prior to Monday's sturdy showing. Thanks to Greg Bird's seemingly endless stay on the disabled list with an ankle injury and Chris Carter's struggles prior to being designated for assignment over the weekend, the Yankees have fielded one of the worst offensive first base collectives in the bigs. If Austin can give them anything resembling a boost at the position, they will most definitely take it.

Willson Contreras went 2-for-4 with a homer and a sac bunt Monday as the Cubs edged the Nationals 5-4.

The Cubs were up 1-0 after seven -- courtesy of Contreras's leadoff homer in the first -- and 2-0 after eight before the offenses finally broke out in the ninth. Contreras was making his first ever start in the leadoff spot. It's probably not something he'll have the chance to get used to, but he's a nice DFS option whenever he's penciled in up there.

Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Monday's win over the White Sox.

The Chase Headley Renaissance continues unabated. He hit an RBI single in the fourth inning and his booming double in the sixth inning nearly left the ballpark. The veteran third baseman has six hits in his last eight at-bats. He has raised his average from .237 to .262 in what has been a strong June.

Eddie Butler blanked the Nationals for five innings to earn a victory on Monday.

Butler might have had a chance to go six innings for the first time since his Cubs debut on May 12 -- he threw just 64 pitches -- but his spot came up with two men on in a 1-0 game in the top of the sixth and the decision was made to hit for him. It didn't work out, but it was still probably the right call in such a tight game. Butler has a 3.71 ERA while throwing a total of 43 2/3 innings in his nine starts for the Cubs. It's earned him four wins to date.

Tim Anderson went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

The White Sox trailed 6-1 heading to the bottom of the ninth inning, but Anderson would sock a three-run homer off Chasen Shreve to force the Yankees to bring Aroldis Chapman into the game. The young shortstop is hitting .253/.278/.377 with seven homers, 24 RBI and five steals over the course of 67 games played for the season as a whole.
Jun 26 - 11:50 PM

Todd Frazier went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Frazier cracked a solo home run off Jordan Montgomery in the second inning. He had a chance to play hero with two outs in the ninth, but flew out to left after just getting under an Aroldis Chapman pitch to strand the potential tying run at second base. For the season as a whole, the slugger is slashing .212/.322/.429 with 13 homers and 36 RBI in 230 at-bats. While the overall numbers are less than impressive, Frazier has hit safely in seven of his last eight games and has bopped three homers in that space.

Wade Davis gave up two runs after coming on in the ninth Monday in the Cubs' win over the Nationals.

Hector Rondon was brought in to finish a 5-0 game, but Joe Maddon got cold feet after he allowed a double and an RBI single with one out. Davis came in and gave up two doubles, a walk and a single before finally striking out Ryan Zimmerman to end it with the tying run on third. Davis is still a perfect 15-for-15 saving games this year, but he has been a more vulnerable of late, giving up runs in four of 10 appearances. Prior to this stretch, he had allowed only an unearned run in 18 appearances.

Jordan Montgomery pitched well in Monday's win over the White Sox, surrendering one run on five hits over seven innings.

Montgomery struck out eight and walked one on the evening. His breaking ball was as sharp as it has looked all season. Todd Frazier smacked a solo home run off the southpaw in the second inning, but he otherwise shut down the White Sox over his seven innings of work. In 14 starts covering 81 2/3 innings this season, Montgomery has pitched to a respectable 3.53 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 79/27 K/BB ratio. He will have his work cut out for him in his next scheduled outing, as he will be hitting the road to take on the Astros
