Max Scherzer struck out 10 batters without walking anybody and held the Padres to two runs in seven innings, but had to settle for a no-decision as the Nationals beat the Padres 3-2 on Saturday.

The only damage was a two-run homer by Ryan Schimpf in the second inning. Scherzer leads the majors with 181 strikeouts and has walked only 35 in 141 2/3 innings. He has a stellar 2.92 ERA. The only thing keeping him from being a fantasy monster is his relatively modest 10-6 record.

Adrian Gonzalez hit his eighth home run of the season in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

The homer was the solo variety, hit off Cards starter Mike Leake in the sixth inning. His power outage has been baffling, as Gonzalez has traditionally averaged 22 home runs over his big league career. The 34-year-old is hitting .280/.357/.401 with 47 RBI and 37 runs scored through 95 games.

Edwin Jackson turned in a quality start on Saturday, yielding two runs in six innings but took a no-decision versus the Nationals.

He struck out only one batter and walked three but managed to deliver good results nonetheless. This was his second start since joining the Padres last week after starting the season in the Marlins' bullpen. He has walked more batters than he has struck out this year, which is obviously a harbinger of doom in the long run. He will take his 4.30 ERA into a home matchup with the Reds next week.

Stephen Drew was called upon to pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth inning and stroked a game-winning RBI double as the Nationals won in walk-off fashion on Saturday.

Drew has been relegated to part-time duty this season but has hit well when given the chance. After being one of the game's worst batters the last two years, Drew is hitting .255/.313/.539 this year. He has seven home runs in only 103 at-bats.

Mike Leake allowed 12 hits and seven runs -- six earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

It just wasn't Leake's day, as he surrendered four runs in the third inning before giving up three more in the sixth. To his credit, Leake didn't walk a batter while striking out four. It wasn't much of a consolation for the right-hander, who fell to 7-8 with a 4.24 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with the loss. Leake will try to get his record back to even when he faces the Marlins next weekend.

Kenta Maeda allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

Maeda gave up five hits, including a solo homer, without issuing a walk in the win. It was his ninth victory of the season, keeping his ERA at 3.25 with a 1.11 WHIP and 115 strikeouts in 113 2/3 innings. The 28-year-old, who hasn't won consecutive starts since April, will try to make it a winning streak Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
Jul 23 - 10:46 PM

Matt Kemp doubled twice in four at-bats as the Padres lost to the Nationals on Saturday.

Kemp has been white-hot over the past week. He entered tonight's contest having homered six times in his last six games. He didn't go deep tonight but he did double twice. He is now batting .260/.280/.490 with 22 home runs and 67 RBI.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees are telling teams that they are close to trading Aroldis Chapman.

They're also telling teams that they intend to keep Andrew Miller. Chapman has been his usual dominant self this season with New York, boasting a 2.01 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 44/8 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. The 28-year-old impending free agent is averaging 100 mph with his fastball. There is believed to be interest from the Cubs, Nationals, and Giants.
