Anthony Rendon hit the game-winning homer Saturday in the Nationals' 7-6 defeat of the Indians.

Rendon's ninth-inning solo blast gave the Nats a one-run lead and Rafael Soriano held the Tribe scoreless in the bottom half of the frame. Rendon also doubled and singled in what was probably his best game yet in the major leagues. The talented 23-year-old is batting .333/.406/.491 overall this season and has been especially productive since his latest callup from the minors.

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.

The Cubs trailed 7-2 before scoring four runs in the seventh inning and two more on Coghlan's blast off Brian Wilson in the eighth. 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.

A-Gone connected for a two-run homer in the first inning before adding a three-run blast in the third. He's now up to 25 homers on the year and leads the majors with 111 RBI.

Max Scherzer picked up his 17th victory of the season on Saturday, limiting the Royals to one run on seven hits over seven strong innings of work.

Scherzer punched out six on the afternoon while issuing only one free pass. The only damage against him came on an RBI single off the bat of Alcides Escobar in the fifth inning. Now 17-7 on the year, he will head into Thursday’s matchup against the Twins with a 3.19 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 243/59 K/BB ratio.

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.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said late Friday that there is a "distinct possibility" that Jacoby Ellsbury (hamstring) will be shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season.

Ellsbury sustained a strained hamstring in Friday's win over the Blue Jays and is set to undergo an MRI on Saturday. With the Yankees playoff hopes all but finished, there's no reason to rush Ellsbury back and risk further aggravation.

Dustin Ackley had big night at the plate Friday against the Astros, going 2-for-4 with two solo home runs, a walk, and three runs scored.

It was the second multi-homer game of his career. Ackley came into Friday's action 3-for-35 (.086) this month. The Mariners and fantasy owners will have to hope that the big game will get him going again.

Michael Cuddyer clobbered a grand slam and drove home a career-high seven runs as the Rockies routed the Diamondbacks 15-3 in Colorado on Friday.

Cuddyer did all of his damage in the second half of the ballgame, smashing his grand slam in the sixth inning, then delivering a bases-clearing double with the bases loaded his next time up in the eighth. There's no doubting his production when he's been on the field, but unfortunately for fantasy owners that hasn't been often enough this season.

David Ortiz blasted a pair of home runs on Friday, including a go-ahead two-run shot in the 10th inning, powering the Red Sox to a 5-3 victory over the Orioles.

Ortiz got the Red Sox on the board with a solo blast in the fourth inning, which was immediately followed by another off the bat of Yoenis Cespedes. He then delivered a massive two-run shot off Darren O'Day in the 10th inning to put the Red Sox ahead for good, finishing the night 3-for-5 with three RBI. He now has 34 homers and 102 RBI on the season, making it a club record eighth time that he has reached the 30-homer/100-RBI plateaus, surpassing Ted Williams.

Russell Martin hit a dramatic go-ahead three-run homer in a 4-2 win over the Brewers on Friday night.

After Yovani Gallardo pitched seven scoreless innings, Martin put the Pirates in front in the eighth inning against Jonathan Broxton and sent PNC Park into pandemonium. The veteran backstop has had a fantastic under-the-radar year, batting .296/.408/441 with 11 home runs and 66 RBI while throwing out 39 percent of attempted basestealers. He's a big reason why the Pirates are currently on track for their second straight postseason appearance. Look for him to land a nice contract in free agency this winter.
Sep 19 - 10:46 PM

Edwin Encarnacion smacked a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

Encarnacion underwent a precautionary MRI on his back early Friday, but he felt well enough to play. The 31-year-old now has 33 homers on the year, which ties him for fifth in the American League.
