Gio Gonzalez will start Game 1 of the NLDS.

It was probably an easy decision for Nationals manager Davey Johnson. Gonzalez, a candidate for the NL Cy Young Award, has registered a sparkling 2.89 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 207/76 K/BB ratio across 199 1/3 innings this season for the NL East champs. Jordan Zimmermann will start Game 2, then it'll be either Edwin Jackson or Ross Detwiler in Game 3.

Chris Davis mashed another pair of home runs on Friday as the Orioles thrashed the Blue Jays 10-2 in Toronto.

Davis got the O's on the board with a solo blast off Drew Hutchison in the second inning, and added on a two-run shot in the sixth. The 29-year-old slugger has been absolutely locked in at the plate, clobbering five home runs in his last three games, including two consecutive multi-homer games. With his 2-for-5 effort, Davis is now slashing .253/.338/.545 with 40 home runs and 100 RBI. It's the second time in his career that he has crossed each of those milestones.

Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Friday's 5-2 win over the Rays.

Rodriguez's homer opened the scoring for the game in the second inning. It was his 27th home run of the season. He logged a nine-homer July, but hit just two bombs last month. It's been a general cool-down for the 40-year-old as the days have worn on. He entered Friday's game having hit .210/.317/.413 in 40 games since the All-Star Break.

Josh Tomlin delivered a masterful performance in Friday's victory over the Tigers, allowing just one run on four hits while pitching his first complete game this season.

Tomlin racked up six strikeouts on the night while walking one. The only blemish on his evening was an RBI single by Miguel Cabrera in the sixth inning. The veteran right-hander has pitched very well in his five starts this season, compiling a 2.55 ERA and 32/3 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings. He'll take on the White Sox in Chicago on Wednesday and warrants consideration in all mixed leagues while he's pitching this well.

Stephen Vogt was a late scratch from the Athletics starting lineup on Friday.

No reason has yet to be given for his late removal from the lineup. Mark Canha slides over from left field to cover first base while Taylor Ladendorf will enter the lineup and play left field.
Sep 4 - 8:39 PM

Padres activated 1B/OF Wil Myers from the 60-day disabled list.

Myers will rejoin the Padres lineup immediately on Friday, batting sixth and starting at first base. He has been sidelined since June 13 following surgery on his left wrist. The 24-year-old is hitting .277/.327/.459 with five homers and 19 RBI in 35 games this season.
Sep 4 - 7:05 PM

Addison Russell clobbered a pair of home runs on Friday, leading the Cubs offense in a 14-5 rout over the Diamondbacks.

Russell swatted a solo home run off D'Backs starter Zack Godley in the second inning, increasing the Cubbies early lead to 4-0. He victimized him again in the fourth, this time a two-run homer, putting the Cubs ahead 6-1. He also drew a walk, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3 with three runs scored and three RBI. The rookie shortstop is hitting .244/.303/.403 with 12 long balls and 41 RBI.
Sep 4 - 7:02 PM

Andrew McCutchen (Achilles) is back in the Pirates' lineup Friday.

McCutchen sat out Friday with some minor tightness in his Achilles. It's something to keep an eye on going forward, but he's expected to be alright.
Sep 4 - 5:56 PM

Brandon Crawford (calf) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.

Crawford hasn't played since being hit in the left calf by a pitch Monday. This is just his second start in 10 days due to oblique and calf ailments.
Sep 4 - 5:53 PM

Pablo Sandoval was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday due to mid-back tightness.

Sandoval had to cut his batting practice short when his back stiffened up on him. It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Travis Shaw has replaced him at third base.
Sep 4 - 5:50 PM

Miguel Sano (hamstring) is back in the Twins' lineup Friday.

Sano has been dealing with a sore right hamstring of late and didn't play Thursday. He's in the designated hitter spot.
Sep 4 - 4:56 PM

Rockies activated 1B Justin Morneau from the 60-day disabled list.

It's cool to see Morneau make it back this season after battling more concussion issues as well as a neck injury for much of the year. The Rockies will surely be careful with him down the stretch, though. He's starting at first base Friday.
