Justin Smoak walloped a clutch two-run homer to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Athletics on Wednesday.

His team trailed 2-0 entering the final frame. Following a lead-off walk by Josh Donaldson, Smoak cracked an offering from closer Santiago Casilla over the right field wall. Kendrys Morales followed with a walk-off home run. The bomb was Smoak's 28th of the campaign. He is having the best season of his career while slashing .297/.377/.592 with 67 RBI.

Bruce Rondon was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Rondon was ejected after hitting Mike Moustakas with a pitch. The benches subsequently cleared. Don't be surprised if Rondon is hit with a suspension after the game.

Brewers optioned OF Brett Phillips to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

In 35 at-bats with the Brew Crew this season, Phillips picked up eight hits, including a double and two homers. The 23-year-old outfielder will serve as minor league depth moving forward, but could see additional work with the big league team before rosters expand in September.

Marco Estrada allowed two runs on three hits across five innings against the Athletics on Wednesday.

He made one bad pitch in the ballgame and it resulted in a two-run bomb by Marcus Semien. It looked like those runs would cost Estrada a loss but he was bailed out when his teammates erupted for three runs in the bottom of the ninth. Estrada struck out four and walked four in the outing. His record holds at 4-7 with a 5.43 ERA. He has endured a brutal stretch over the past six weeks, today's outing might mark a return toward his early-season form.

The Braves are expected to option Dansby Swanson to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Swanson has had a few nice moments this season, but has struggled by-and-large. Over the course of 324 at-bats, the 23-year-old shortstop is hitting a mere .213/.287/.312 with six homers and 35 RBI. Johan Carmago will likely see the majority of shortstop at-bats moving forward with Swanson heading down to hone his craft.

Marcus Semien cranked a two-run home run in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

His fifth-inning johnson off starter Marco Estrada stood as the only scoring in the ballgame until the bottom of the ninth when closer Santiago Casilla came unglued to blow the game. The homer was Semien's only hit of the ballgame, although he did draw a walk. He owns a lowly .208 batting average with three homers, 10 RBI and seven stolen bases in 27 games. He missed three months of the season with a fractured wrist.

Stephen Strasburg (arm) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Strasburg will miss his Saturday start against the Rockies -- top pitching prospect Erick Fedde will toe the rubber for that one -- but the Nationals are hopeful that he will be able to return from the disabled list when first eligible. He initially came down with discomfort in his right forearm during his outing on Sunday.

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 during Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He singled and doubled in the ballgame but didn't factor into the scoring. He also struck out twice. The Athletics managed only one other hit in the ballgame. He is still having an excellent season despite a rough month of July. He is batting .267/.364/.534 with 21 home runs and 45 RBI.
