Rays signed DH Jack Cust to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Cust is a longshot to make the Opening Day roster after the Rays re-signed Luke Scott, but he'll represent depth at Triple-A. The 34-year-old spent all of 2012 at the Triple-A level, batting .243/.400/.442 with 20 homers and 72 RBI in 114 games.

Carlos Gonzalez had a grand slam, a two-run homer and a sac fly to power the Rockies to a 9-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Gonzalez is the eighth player to drive in seven runs in a game this year. He's now just one away from matching his career high of 34 homers, and with 80 RBI, he has a chance to reach the century mark for the second time in his career. It's too bad for his fantasy value that he doesn't try steals any more, but his owners will make that trade off in return for continued health.

Clayton Kershaw tied a career-high with 15 strikeouts in Wednesday's complete-game gem against the Giants, a 2-1 victory.

Things got a bit hairy in the ninth, as Kershaw was visited by Don Mattingly with runners on first and second and two outs in the ninth. It would have been understandable if he'd been pulled; Kershaw became just the second pitcher this year to reach the 130-pitch mark. As is, he scattered six hits while giving up the one earned run. He walked one. Oh, and what happened after Mattingly walked back to the dugout? Kershaw struck out Marlon Byrd to tie his career best. We're pretty sure Kershaw isn't going to strike out 14 or more batters next time around against the Angels, but one never does know with him.

Jonathan Lucroy knocked in three runs in a 2-for-5 effort as the Brewers beat the Pirates on Wednesday.

Lucroy opened up the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning, then added a two-run single in the fourth to break a 3-3 tie. The catcher is on a 10-game hitting streak. At the end of August, he brought his OPS over .700 for the first time all season. Currently, Lucroy carries a .260/.323/.391 batting line with seven home runs and 40 RBI.

Glen Perkins was unavailable Wednesday due to back stiffness.

Perkins dealt with back issues recently but pitched as recently as Tuesday, earning the save against the White Sox. On Wednesday, that honor went to Kevin Jepsen as Perkins watched. Perkins had a precautionary MRI taken of the back and is likely to stay behind as the team departs on a road trip Friday. The results of the MRI, and how his back feels Thursday, should give a better indication of what he's dealing with.

Yordano Ventura fanned 11 Tigers and pitched seven innings of one-run ball in Wednesday's win.

The Tigers weren't able to do a whole lot against the right-hander, who scattered five hits and a walk. The only run came around in the sixth inning on an Ian Kinsler ground out. Ventura has pitched inconsistently for most of the year, but has started to put it together. In his last five starts, he has a 1.13 ERA with a 43/13 K/BB ratio over 32 innings. Ventura hosts the Twins in his next start.

Evan Longoria hit a pair of home runs, but it wasn't enough in Wednesday's 11-inning, 7-6 loss versus the Orioles.

Longoria smacked a two-run home run in the middle of a four-run third inning against Kevin Gausman. He then tacked on what proved to be an important -- though ultimately inconsequential -- insurance run with a solo home run off the foul pole in left field off of Darren O'Day. Longoria has gone yard three times in his last three games and now has 17 on the year with 61 RBI and a .268/.329/.426 triple-slash line.

Nelson Cruz left Wednesday's game with a strained right quad.

Cruz singled and ran the bases in the top of the seventh inning and apparently injured the quad during that time. The severity of the injury should be better known in the coming days.

Matt Harvey was dehydrated and "feeling a little weak" after Wednesday's start against the Phillies.

Harvey gave up four runs over 6 1/3 innings in the win, but it wasn't the most dominant he's been and officials told reporters he was feeling weak during the outing. It was unclear whether Harvey was going to travel with the Mets to Miami Wednesday night or whether he would stay behind. It shouldn't be a huge issue going forward, but it's something to monitor, especially with the Mets wanting to give the right-hander a break sometime in September.

Chris Davis blasted a walk-off home run in the 11th inning to send the Rays home losers on Wednesday.

Teammate Jonathan Schoop played the hero in the ninth inning, hitting a game-tying two-run home run. Davis completed the comeback, belting a Matt Andriese offering over the fence in right-center in the 11th inning. It was his second homer of the game, as he also went yard in the third inning with a man aboard. Davis, with 38 home runs, is one behind Nelson Cruz for the major league lead. He has also knocked in 97 runs while batting .253/.339/.538.
Sep 2 - 10:51 PM

Michael Conforto hit a two-run home run in Wednesday's win against the Phillies.

Conforto, who finished 2-for-4, sent an Aaron Nola out to left field to push the Mets' lead to 6-0 in the third inning. The outfielder is hitting a solid .311/.396/.567 with five home runs and 17 RBI across 106 plate appearances to begin his major league career.
Sep 2 - 10:09 PM

Bryce Harper left Wednesday's game with left glute tightness.

Harper didn't show any noticeable signs of injury before being removed. His outlook should be clearer in the coming day or two.
