Justin Turner belted a game-tying pinch-hit home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday against the Phillies.

The homer was Turner's first of the season, but fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly. He is hitting .388 with a .541 slugging percentage. The scruffy hot corner man has hit safely in 15 straight, longest active streak in the majors. He has at least one RBI in each of his past three outings.

Carlos Gomez hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning Saturday against the Angels to complete the cycle.

It was Gomez's first time hitting for the cycle since May 7, 2008 when he was a member of the Minnesota Twins. There's something about Saturday that brings out the best in Gomez, as he has collected seven hits over his past two games on a Saturday. He is 13-for-34 (.382) over his past nine games to raise his average from .155 to .239 just since April 19.

Matt Kemp went 3-for-5 with three home runs and five RBI to lead the Braves past the Brewers 11-3 on Saturday.

Kemp was an equal opportunity masher, hitting his three homers off three different pitchers from the fifth to the eighth inning. Remarkably, it was the first time in his career that the 32-year-old had a three-homer game. The output doubled his season total and gave him 15 RBI with seven runs scored in just 12 games, after he missed 10 games with a right hamstring strain. In case anyone was wondering, it appears he's over that now.

Ivan Nova limited the Marlins to three hits in a complete-game, 4-0 shutout on Saturday.

Nova was brilliant, keeping the Marlins to a pair of singles and a double while needing just 95 pitches to complete the task. A 7/0 K/BB ratio helped, and Nova now has 22 strikeouts to one walk over 36 innings this year. He's picked up right where he left off after joining the Bucs at last year's trade deadline, posting a 1.50 ERA and 0.75 WHIP in five starts, and a date with the division-rival Reds is on tap for Thursday.

Andrew Triggs set a personal best with nine strikeouts over seven shutout innings in the Athletics' 2-1 win over the Astros on Saturday.

One start after getting beatdown by the Mariners, Triggs rebounded with his best start of his abbreviated major league career. The nine strikeouts bested the eight he recorded in a start last year, and it was actually the first time he'd gotten through seven innings as a member of the A's. The 28-year-old has now held the opposition without an earned run in four of his five starts, good for a 1.84 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 29 1/3 innings. Triggs will seek an encore performance Friday against the Tigers.

Wade Davis struck out three in a scoreless ninth inning, and the Cubs defeated the Red Sox 7-4 on Saturday.

Davis did yield a single but got all three outs by way of strikeout, getting Jackie Bradley, Christian Vazquez and Marco Hernandez to end it. Davis now has six saves on the year, having not allowed a run with a 0.58 WHIP in 10 1/3 innings of work.

Rich Hill (blister) will throw 60 pitches in a rehab start for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga Thursday, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

Hill threw a 48-pitch simulated game Saturday and came out of it unscathed, paving the way for Thursday's rehab start. If that goes well, the southpaw will return to the Dodgers in the second week of May. Blisters have been a huge issue for Hill in recent years, marring his career resurgence. When on the mound he's been terrific, though.

Ian Desmond "seems poised" to make his Rockies debut in left field Sunday, per Thomas Harding of MLB.com.

Harding also said Desmond is "in line" to get the start against Diamondbacks southpaw Patrick Corbin, despite no official word from the club. Desmond has been hitting the cover off the ball in extended spring, and Rockies manager Bud Black said he and Desmond would talk Saturday before any decision was made. The 31-year-old has been sidelined since March 12 with a fractured left hand. His fantasy upside is huge in a strong Rockies lineup and playing half his games at Coors Field.

Shelby Miller has opted to undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, Barry M. Bloom of MLB.com reports.

"After taking some time and sitting back for a couple of days and talking to everybody and getting all the information that I could, I'm just going to go ahead and get the surgery done," Miller said. "With where I am in my career and how many years I have ahead of me, I think it's the logical thing to do." Miller said he's hopeful to be back on a mound next spring, but more realistically he'll probably be out until late 2018 or perhaps even the start of the 2019 season.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports that OF Adam Eaton has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the rest of the season.

He was injured while beating out an infield single against the Mets on Friday night. He had to be helped off the field at the time but the severity of the injury was unknown until now. This is a major blow to the Nationals' chances of winning the National League East division. They acquired him from the White Sox over the winter by trading two elite pitching prospects, Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez. Recovery from a torn ACL can take a year, meaning he could be questionable for the start of next season. Michael Taylor will likely replace Eaton in the starting lineup moving forward.

Pirates placed 3B David Freese on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a strained right hamstring.

Freese hasn't played since straining his hamstring in Monday's game against the Cubs. The Pirates finally realized his leg wasn't healing fast enough to avoid placing him on the DL. Freese has been one of the club's best hitters in the early going, batting .321/.418/.536 with three home runs and 10 RBI. Outfielder Danny Ortiz was called up from Triple-A to take Freese's place on the roster.
