Yasiel Puig walked off another Dodgers win with a two-run double in the ninth inning Wednesday against the White Sox.

Puig, who had been hitless over the last week, plated Logan Forsythe and Austin Barnes to give the Dodgers a 4-3 win. He has 57 RBI in 372 at-bats, which is pretty good for someone who has spent so much of the year batting eighth. The Dodgers improved to 85-34 with the victory.

Carlos Rodon limited the Dodgers to two runs in 7 1/3 innings Wednesday.

Rodon ended up with four walks and four strikeouts, so it wasn't a dominant effort. Still, this makes four straight quality starts for him, all against some of the best teams in baseball (he faced Cleveland, Boston and Houston his previous three times out). In fact, eight of his nine starts have come against teams currently in postseason position, making his 4.00 ERA impressive indeed.

Aaron Bummer and Jake Petricka combined to give up three runs in the ninth in a loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Rick Renteria burned through his two best relievers, Juan Minaya and Gregory Infante, in a perfect eighth, letting them face three batters combined (it probably had something to do with Minaya throwing 23 pitches on Tuesday). Sporting a 4-2 lead, the White Sox opened the ninth with Bummer, only to pull him after a leadoff single. In came Petricka, who entered the night with an 8.05 ERA and a 1.895 WHIP in 19 innings. The end result was unsurprising; Petricka retired none of the three batters he faced as the Dodgers came back to win. We can't imagine Petricka will see a ninth-inning lead again anytime soon. Minaya really seems like the best choice for Renteria.
Aug 17 - 2:06 AM

Logan Forsythe doubled twice and walked Wednesday against the White Sox.

Forsythe has been a definite disappointment offensively, with the obvious caveat that it hasn't stopped the Dodgers from going 85-34 so far. If he can get hot down the stretch, it just adds more length to a lineup that's already plenty long.
Aug 17 - 2:02 AM

Nick Delmonico went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo homers Wednesday against the Dodgers.

The good times won't last forever, but at the moment, Delmonico is sporting a 1.088 OPS in 48 at-bats as a big leaguer. The White Sox had been starting to sit him some since Avisail Garcia returned, but one imagines this will help him become a lineup fixture for a little while.
Aug 17 - 1:59 AM

Trevor Story went 3-for-4 with two homers and six RBI as the Rockies crushed the Braves 17-2 on Wednesday.

Story is still striking out a ton, but he is hitting .242 with seven homers and 21 RBI in 95 at-bats during the second half. Those power numbers will make him a valuable fantasy property just as long as he can keep his OBP acceptable enough to remain in the Rockies' lineup.
Aug 17 - 1:56 AM

Jon Gray pitched six innings of two-run ball to beat the Braves at Coors Field on Wednesday.

Gray has turned steadier of late, allowing three runs of fewer in five straight starts. Of course, it doesn't hurt that his last three starts have come against the dregs of the NL East (the Phillies, Marlins and Braves). He'll face Kansas City next time out and then probably get the Braves again afterwards.
Aug 17 - 1:54 AM

Mike Foltynewicz was pounded for eight runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Rockies on Wednesday.

Folty has given up 14 runs over six innings in his last two starts, taking his ERA up to 4.75. Some trumpeted him as a breakout player earlier this year, but he currently has a higher ERA and far worse WHIP than last year (1.49 to 1.30).
