Ryan Rua hit a solo home run in the ninth inning to give the Rangers a 2-1 win over the Angels on Sunday.

It was a good time for Rua's first career home run, as the game was tied and the Angels had closer Huston Street on the hill. Rua has been very good in a 21-game stint with the club, batting .313/.329/.410 with 10 RBI and 10 runs scored.

Matt Kemp went 4-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in the Dodgers' 8-5 victory over the Cubs on Sunday.

It seemed like every time Kemp stepped to the plate he had a chance to drive someone in -- usually Yasiel Puig -- and he came through in three different instances. The big blow was a two-run homer in the third, his 23rd home run on the year. Kemp has shaken off a slow start to turn in another strong year at the plate, hitting .286/.347/.498 with 84 RBI and 73 runs scored with a handful of games left to play.

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Astros downed the Mariners 8-3 on Sunday.

With a one-run lead in the seventh inning, Marisnick blew the game wide open with a three-run shot off Mariners reliever Yoervis Medina. The homer was Marisnick's third of the year and his second in the past two games. He also scored the first run of the game on a wild pitch. The multi-faceted outfielder is hitting .276 since moving to the American League and is slashing .250/.285/.325 with 11 steals and three homers overall.

Greg Holland worked a perfect ninth inning to preserve the Royals' 5-2 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Holland has appeared in three games since dealing with some biceps tightness, but Sunday was his first save chance since his return. He passed that test with flying colors, striking out two in the 1-2-3 inning. Holland now has 43 saves to go with a 1.52 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 86/19 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings. Now healthy, Holland is once again one of the elite closers in the game.

Corey Kluber did it again Sunday, striking out 14 while allowing two runs over seven innings in the Indians' 7-2 win over the Twins.

The start was the second consecutive start in which Kluber has fanned 14, giving him an MLB-best 258 strikeouts on the year. The win was Kluber's fourth straight, moving him to 17-9 with a 2.53 ERA on the year. Felix Hernandez may have the lead in the AL Cy Young discussion, but the Klubot will have one more shot at convincing voters of his deservedness when he faces the Rays on Saturday.

Mookie Betts hit a leadoff home run, finishing 2-for-5 as the Red Sox sneaked past the Orioles 3-2 on Sunday.

Leading off the game, Betts homered to left on the fourth pitch he saw. The homer was his fifth of the year, giving him 14 RBI. Betts is really showing something after his early struggles, as his line sits at .285/.362/.436 after Sunday's performance. It should be fun to watch what the 21-year-old will do in his sophomore campaign.

Jacob deGrom held the Braves to two runs -- one earned -- over six innings Sunday as the Mets completed a three-game sweep with a 10-2 blowout win.

The 26-year-old right-hander carried a perfect game into the fifth, but Justin Upton broke that up with a single and then scored on a Ruben Tejada fielding error. A few batters later, deGrom issued a bases-loaded walk to give the Braves their second run. He struck out 10 batters in the impressive outing and is now sporting a 2.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 43/144 K/BB ratio in 140 1/3 innings this year.
Sep 21 - 4:53 PM

Masahiro Tanaka tossed 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Yankees' 5-2 win over the Blue Jays.

It was Tanaka's first start since July 8 and he looked great, scattering five hits and fanning four batters over his five-plus frames. Tanaka did not issue a walk and went to only one three-ball count. He's been successful so far in his attempt to rehab a partially-torn ulnar collateral ligament and will look to put a promising stamp on his rookie season this week in Boston. Tanaka is 13-4 with a 2.47 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 139/19 K/BB ratio in 134 2/3 major league innings.
Sep 21 - 4:28 PM

Vance Worley threw eight scoreless innings, allowing just four hits, in Sunday's 1-0 defeat of the Brewers.

Worley was dominant in the start, giving up just four singles without walking a batter in silencing the Brewers' bats. He struck out five in the win. After a rough stretch in the middle of August, Worley has bounced back to win three straight, improving his record to 8-4. Worley has been a tremendous find for the Bucs this season, and he'll take a 2.93 ERA in his final start of the season against the Reds on Friday.
Sep 21 - 4:25 PM

X-rays on Marcell Ozuna's right ankle came back negative.

While nothing is broken, it looked like Ozuna suffered a bad sprain and he seems likely to be done for the season. The outfielder has hit .269/.317/.455 with 23 homers and 85 RBI this year.

Jurickson Profar will meet with Dr. Keith Meister in Texas after experiencing more soreness in his right shoulder.

Profar has missed the entire season with a torn muscle in the shoulder and has had a couple setbacks along the way. He will now not play in the Arizona Fall League as planned and his status going forward looks very cloudy. It's yet another dose of bad news in what has been an awful season for the Rangers.
