Keuchel was spotted a four-run lead by the time the first inning was over, thanks to early home runs by Chris Carter and Alex Presley. He did not squander the cushion.

Mike Minor lasted just one inning Saturday because of shoulder discomfort.

Minor missed the first month of the year because of shoulder tendinitis, and he was inconsistent for most of the year before suddenly turning it on last month. Now it seems likely that his season is done, but with the Braves collapsing, he was just about finished regardless.

Jose Bautista went 2-for-2 with three walks, a solo home run, and four runs scored as the Blue Jays emerged victorious against the Yankees on Saturday.

Ken Giles converted the first save of his career, sending the Athletics down in order in Saturday's victory.

Giles is the interim closer while Jonathan Papelbon serves his seven-game suspension. The 24-year-old closer has put up fantastic numbers in his first season in the big leagues, sporting a 1.24 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and 63/11 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. If Papelbon remains in Philadelphia, saves will still be hard to come by for Giles next season.

Eddie Butler earned his first major league win after limiting the D'Backs to one run over six innings on Saturday.

It was a marked improvement over his previous start in which he allowed six runs over 5 1/3 innings against the Dodgers on June 6. The rookie right-hander scattered five hits and a walk while striking out one. The only mistake he made occurred in the fifth inning, when Jake Lamb hit a solo home run. It is not known yet whether Butler will get another turn in the rotation.

Mark Teixeira exited Saturday's game because of renewed soreness in his troublesome right wrist.

It might be time for Teixeira to shut it down. Brendan Ryan replaced him at first base today. The Yankees could give Brian McCann some starts there during the final week, opening up time for Francisco Cervelli, John Ryan Murphy and Austin Romine behind the plate.

Chris Coghlan had a monster day Saturday against the Dodgers, capped with a go-ahead two-run homer in an eventual 8-7 victory.

He finished the day 4-for-4 with two homers, a double, a walk, three RBI, and three runs scored. It was the third two-homer game of his career. Coghlan has been a nice surprise with the Cubs this season, batting .283/.349/.449 with eight home runs, 38 RBI, and six stolen bases over 118 games.

Adrian Gonzalez homered twice and knocked in five runs Saturday against the Cubs.

Nationals activated INF Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day disabled list.

Zimmerman missed 55 games with a torn hamstring, but has taken at-bats in extended spring training games in recent days and is ready for a return. He will bat sixth and start in left field on Saturday. The Nationals will ease him back into action though, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to play every night over the final week of the regular season.
