Lucas Duda had a huge impact on Saturday's 3-2 win over the Nationals, hitting a pair of solo home runs and a go-ahead RBI double.

The Mets brought Yoenis Cespedis over at the trade deadline to bolster a shoddy offense, but on Saturday, Duda did it all on his own. He launched a solo home run against Nationals starter Joe Ross in the fourth inning, then repeated the feat in the seventh. That second homer tied the game at 2-2. A frame later, he smacked an RBI double off Nationals reliever Matt Thornton to put the Mets up 3-2. This would stand as the final. Duda has produced multi-homer efforts in three of his last seven games to help boost his slash to .246/.347/.481 with 20 home runs and 48 RBI.

Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Harper's had a somewhat sketchy series against his divisional rivals this weekend. On Friday, he went 0-for-5 with a strikeout before being ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the 11th inning. The Nationals lost that game. They lost on Saturday, too, though Harper at least managed to stay on the field for the duration of this one. Occasional shenanigans aside, the 22-year-old outfielder is an NL MVP front-runner and is currently hitting .332/.458/.677 with 29 home runs, 68 RBI and four steals.

Aaron Nola scattered five hits and two runs over five innings Saturday in a victory over the Braves.

He struck out three without surrendering a walk. The 22-year-old has allowed a home run in each of his three starts this year, though opponents are still hitting just .211 against him in 71 at-bats. Nola will try for his third win of the season Friday at San Diego.

Ryan Howard led the Phillies with three hits Saturday in a blowout win over the Braves.

Howard contributed an RBI single during the Phillies' four-run fourth inning. The former MVP is hitting a robust .313 since the All-Star break. He leads Philadelphia in home runs (18), RBI (60) and strikeouts (101) this season. Despite winning eight of their last nine, the Phillies remain 14 and a half games behind first-place Washington in the NL East.

Jacob deGrom pitched well in earning a no-decision against the Nationals on Saturday, yielding two runs on six hits over six innings.

Both runs against deGrom came home in the very first inning, when Ian Desmond nicked him for a two-run single. The Nationals wouldn't score again, but the Met offense struggled against Joe Ross and deGrom was unable to earn the victory despite a nice pitching performance. The 27-year-old right-hander holds some impressive numbers this season, including a 2.09 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 135/24 K/BB ratio in 133 1/3 innings. Up next on his schedule, a road date with the Rays.

Joe Ross pitched a nice game against the Mets on Saturday, yielding two runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Ross struck out six and walked one, with both runs scoring on solo home runs by Lucas Duda in the fourth and seventh innings. He's now allowed three or fewer runs in each of his first six starts to open his career in the bigs. Not too shabby. Ross'll take a 3.00 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 40/4 K/BB ratio (over 39 innings) into his next start, a home showdown with the Diamondbacks.
Aug 1 - 10:12 PM

Craig Kimbrel notched his 31st save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning against the Marlins on Saturday.

Kimbrel took the mound with the Padres holding onto a 5-3 lead. He retired all three batters he faced and ended the game with a strikeout of J.T. Realmuto. At various times over the last week, the all-world closer was attached to multiple trade rumors. None of them came to fruition, though, and Kimbrel should close out the season in San Diego. He holds a 2.76 ERA and 58/15 K/BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings while going 31-for-33 in save chances.

The wheels fell off for Anibal Sanchez Saturday in a 6-2 loss to Baltimore.

The O's torched Sanchez for six runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings. The right-hander allowed two home runs, raising his season total to 24. Among AL starters, only Phil Hughes has surrendered more long balls than Sanchez. The right-hander's 4.77 ERA is his highest since 2008.
