Todd Helton smacked a pair of three-run homers in Friday's win over the Reds.

The six RBI matched a career-high while it was his first two-homer game since April 26, 2011. With a .255/.323/.410 with 11 home runs and 48 RBI, Helton hasn't made much noise in what will likely be his final season, but the 40-year-old still has a chance to finish his career on a high note.

David Ortiz finished 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday’s win over the Angels.

Ortiz managed to sneak the ball inside Pesky’s Pole in right field for the 522nd home run of his career. That puts him ahead of Ted Williams, Willie McCovey, and Frank Thomas for 19th on the all-time list. Quite a group there. The home run was also Ortiz’s 2000th hit as a member of the Red Sox. The 40-year-old slugger is batting a ridiculous .342/.435/.684 through 73 games this season. He continues to go out in style.

Jacob deGrom secured his first win since April 30 after allowing one run over five-plus innings against the Cubs on Friday.

DeGrom waited out the first rain delay, but didn’t stick around after the second one. Still, he enjoyed some rare run support from his offense while allowing three hits and one walk. The only run scored on a solo homer by Kris Bryant. DeGrom struck out seven in the victory and now owns a 2.62 ERA and 84/20 K/BB ratio in 86 innings through 14 starts this season. He’ll try to make it a winning streak with a start against the Marlins next week at home.

Brandon Nimmo connected for his first major league homer in a 10-2 win over the Cubs on Friday.

According to StatCast, Nimmo’s fourth-inning blast traveled 442 feet, which is the longest home run by a Mets player this season. The 23-year-old went 2-for-3 on the night and is batting .280 (7-for-25) through his first six games in the majors. He’s bringing some energy out of the leadoff spot for New York and could be worth a try in deeper mixed leagues for however long he stays there.

Kris Bryant slugged a solo homer and drew a walk in Friday’s defeat to the Mets.

After going deep in back-to-back games, Bryant now leads the National League with 23 home runs across 77 games this season. Keep in mind that the 24-year-old had 26 homers in 151 games as a rookie. He’s set to obliterate that total in 2016.

Jose Fernandez played hero Friday by smacking a go-ahead, pinch-hit two-run double in the 12th inning as part of a 7-5 win over the Braves.

Never doubt the Marlins’ ace. Fernandez was asked to pinch-hit with two on and two out against Casey Kelly and he delivered by ripping a ball into the gap in left-center field. After doing damage with his bat on Friday, Fernandez will try to do his part on the mound Saturday.

Rays manager Kevin Cash announced Friday that Steven Souza (hip) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Taylor Motter has been optioned to Triple-A to create a spot on the roster. The Rays are in desperate need for help on offense, which Souza should provide. Before landing on the shelf with his hip injury, Souza was hitting .255/.315/.443 with 10 homers and 25 RBI.

Ian Desmond clobbered a game-winning home run in the 10th inning on Friday, propelling the Rangers to a 3-2 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

The gargantuan shot off of Fernando Abad was his 15th long ball of the season. Desmond also singled and doubled in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-5. He has been one of the best hitters in the American League this season, slashing .323/.376/.535 with 15 homers, 52 RBI and 14 stolen bases.

Jaime Garcia spun eight innings of one-run ball in Friday’s win over the Brewers.

It was quite a night for Garcia. His only mistake was a solo homer by Chris Carter in the second inning. Garcia walked four, but gave up just four hits and struck out six batters. He induced 15 swinging strikes and 16 ground balls in the victory. He also drove in a run with a single. This was his longest outing since his one-hit shutout against this same Brewers team on April 14. Garcia will bring a 3.84 ERA into a start against the Pirates next week at home.

Victor Martinez belted a pair of three-run homers on Friday, powering the Tigers in a 10-2 rout over the Rays in Tampa Bay.

Martinez started the game slowly, as he was 0-for-3 heading into the seventh inning, before he greeted Danny Farquhar with a three-run bomb to increase the Tigers' advantage to 10-7. He wasn't finished though, adding another three-run shot in the ninth to cap off the monster day. He has been a monster at the dish this year, slashing .324/.369/.543 with 16 homers and 49 RBI.

Michael Fulmer returned to the Tigers starting rotation with authority on Friday, racking up 10 strikeouts over seven shutout innings in a victory over the Rays.

The rookie right-hander allowed just two singles and a walk in the ballgame. He has been nothing short of outstanding for the Tigers this season, registering an 8-2 record, 2.17 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 70/25 K/BB ratio over 70 2/3 innings. He'll look to further his case for American League Rookie of the Year honors when he squares off against the red-hot Indians in Cleveland on Wednesday.

Odubel Herrera had all of his tools on full display in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Royals, going 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and a stolen base.

Hererra started the game with a bang, blasting a leadoff home run off of Ian Kennedy. He later singled, swiped a base and scored his second run of the contest. The Phillies' leadoff man is having a terrific season at the dish, slashing .306/.396/.439 with nine homers, 30 RBI and 12 stolen bases.
