Aaron Nola held the Nationals to two runs in six innings and was credited with a win on Saturday.

He struck out five, walked three and surrendered four base knocks in the quality start. Both runs came in the first inning when a Daniel Murphy single plated Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto. Nola settled down from there and shut out the Nationals over the next five frames before being relieved. He improves to 9-2 with a sterling 2.58 ERA and 1.02 WHIP through 16 starts. He is a lock for the All Star team and is working himself into the Cy Young conversation.

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

He went yard off reliever Adam Morgan in the eighth inning as the Nationals tried to overcome a three-run deficit. The third baseman spent nearly a month on the disabled list with a toe injury earlier this year. He's been hitting well lately and has his line up to .286/.357/.490 with eight home runs and 29 RBI in 55 games. He his .301 with 25 homers and 100 RBI last year and will need to pick up the pace to match those numbers in 2018.

Julio Teheran was crushed for seven runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Oh goodness. This one was a debacle from the start, as Teheran opened the contest walking Colby Rasmus, surrendering a double to Adam Jones and walking Manny Machado to load the bases with nobody out. They wouldn't remain loaded for long. Next batter up was Mark Trumbo, who proceeded to launch a grand slam to dead center to give the O's a 4-0 lead. He would again load the bases with nobody out in the fifth inning. That sticky situation was one which he nearly escaped from, but after recording two outs, he yielded a bases-clearing double to Chris Davis and was relieved of duty thereafter. Teheran finished up his miserable afternoon's work having struck out six and walked three. This showing was a far, far cry from his 11-strikeout gem against the Padres last time out. He'll try to get back on track when he carries his 4.52 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into a road showdown with the Cardinals next time out. For reference's sake, Teheran's ERA was sitting at 3.97 prior to Saturday's failures.

Arodys Vizcaino (shoulder) was unavailable Saturday and is now aiming to be ready on Sunday.

Vizcaino wasn't quite ready to go after testing his shoulder before the game today. The Braves ended up losing to the Orioles, so he probably wouldn't have pitched anyway.
Jun 23 - 7:59 PM

Joey Votto went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and two runs scored in Saturday's 11-2 win over the Cubs.

Votto put the exclamation point on Saturday's blowout of the division foe, rocking a three-run home run off Chris Giminez with two outs in the eighth inning to put the Reds up by an 11-2 margin. The home run was just his eighth of the season. The All Star first baseman has been dragging a bit with the power bat in general this year, as he's currently slashing. 299/.427/.459 in 75 games. He has posted a slugging percentage north of .540 each of the last three seasons, so there's plenty of room for improvement, here.

Kelvin Herrera allowed two runs in the eighth inning against the Phillies on Saturday.

The Phillies were already ahead by a run when Herrera came out for the eighth. He served up a solo home run to Carlos Santana and later in the frame surrendered a run-scoring single to Maikel Franco. Herrera was lights-out as the Royals closer and since being traded to the Nationals had pitched two scoreless innings as the set-up man prior to today's poor outing in a non-save situation.
Jun 23 - 7:54 PM

Tucker Barnhart went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

Barnhart rocked a two-run home run off Luke Farrell in the first inning, but would be unable to find another hit through to the end of the contest. The long ball was his fifth of the campaign. In addition, the backstop owns a ho-hum .265/.346/.390 batting line across 223 at-bats. He is ownable in two-catcher formats, but otherwise carries no real fantasy intrigue.
Jun 23 - 7:52 PM

Erick Fedde let in three runs in six-plus innings and was charged with a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

He was looking good through six frames, having yielded only two runs. But he was sent back out for the seventh and allowed a lead-off double to Maikel Franco before being relieved. That runner came around to score against the bullpen and it took the shine off his feel-good outing. The rookie is filling in for the injured Stephen Strasburg and probably hasn't pitched well enough to stay in the majors after the ace returns to action. Fedde is 0-3 with a 5.32 ERA after four starts.
