Jordan Zimmermann allowed two runs over seven innings in the Nationals' 3-2 win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

Zimmermann has now rattled off three straight quality starts after a meltdown against the Cubs a few weeks ago that had some concerned he was on the verge of breaking down. On Wednesday, he allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out five. The win was his 16th of the year, and Zimmermann will pursue his 17th win at the Mets on Tuesday.

Nick Pivetta struck out 13 batters over 7 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals.

Philadelphia wound up winning the game in the bottom of the 10th, on walk-off two-run double by Aaron Altherr. Pivetta was sharp, yielding only four hits -- two of them solo homers -- while setting a new career-high in strikeouts. He's sporting a 4.08 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 94/22 K/BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings (15 starts) this season. Up next is a road start against the division-rival Nationals.

Aaron Altherr hit a walk-off two-run double in the bottom of the 10th inning Monday as the Phillies beat the Cardinals 6-5.

He entered the game in the top of the eighth after Nick Williams got hit in the nose by a ball that ricocheted off the wall in right field. Altherr struck out in his first at-bat in the bottom of the eighth, but with two runners on in the bottom of the 10th he laced a line drive into left field that Marcell Ozuna couldn't snag. It rolled to the wall, allowing Rhys Hoskins to score from first base and Carlos Santana to race around all the way from first. Altherr has mostly struggled this season, but he does have 31 RBI in 65 games.

Aroldis Chapman picked up his 21st save of the season on Monday night against the Nationals.

Chapman gave up a leadoff double to Daniel Murphy in the bottom of the ninth and then issued a one-out walk to Michael Taylor, but he rallied to strike out Adam Eaton and induce a game-ending groundout from Trea Turner. Chapman boasts a 1.14 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 55 strikeouts in 31 2/3 innings this season.

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored Monday in the Yankees' 4-2 win over the Nationals.

Hicks led off the game with a double in the top of the first inning before scoring on an RBI single by Giancarlo Stanton. He then took Erick Fedde deep for a two-run shot in the top of the fifth. Hicks has homered in two straight games and holds a .785 OPS with nine homers, 30 RBI, six stolen bases, and 30 runs scored in 55 total games this season. The 28-year-old outfielder was a nice value in drafts this spring.

Trevor Williams allowed just one hit over seven shutout innings Monday in the Pirates' 1-0 blanking of the Brewers.

Williams walked two but struck out seven in a tremendous outing versus a dangerous Milwaukee offense. He had struggled in five consecutive starts, so it came as somewhat of a surprise. The 26-year-old right-hander will bring a 4.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into his next turn Saturday against the Diamondbacks. He's an appealing streaming candidate in certain matchups.

Nationals acquired RHP Kelvin Herrera from the Royals for 3B Kelvin Gutierrez, OF Blake Perkins and RHP Yohanse Morel.

Herrea, who is set to be a free agent at season's end, owns a brilliant 1.05 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 22/2 K/BB ratio across 25 2/3 innings this season. It's unclear if he'll function in the closer's role for the Nationals, or operate in a time-share with incumbent closer Sean Doolittle, but either way it gives the Nationals a savage one-two punch at the back end of their bullpen.

Angels activated OF Kole Calhoun from the 10-day disabled list.

Calhoun has missed most of this month with a strained right oblique but is back in right field and batting ninth Monday. He'll return to an ugly .145/.195/.179 batting line.

Jay Bruce (hip) has been scratched from the Mets' lineup Monday.

Bruce has been dealing with soreness in his hip and will now miss his fourth game out of the last five. Jose Bautista has replaced him in the lineup.
Jun 18 - 5:51 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (thumb) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

It was reported previously that Kiermaier would return on Friday, but he must have talked his way into an earlier return. The outfielder will go through a workout with the Rays on Monday and then be activated the following day assuming all goes well. He's been out since mid-April with a torn ligament in his right thumb and went 7-for-17 (.412) with a triple and a double in five rehab games.
Jun 18 - 5:28 PM

Javier Baez (elbow) could return to the Cubs' lineup Tuesday.

Baez is sitting out Monday after leaving Sunday's game following a hit by pitch on the left elbow, but he didn't need any X-rays and said he's fine. Ben Zobrist is at second base Monday.
Jun 18 - 5:01 PM

Clayton Kershaw (back) said after getting through a three-inning simulated game Monday that he expects to pitch in a game in five days.

Kershaw wouldn't say if that game would be a start in New York against the Mets, but he didn't seem to rule it out, either. The veteran left-hander has made just one start for the Dodgers since May 1, but he has rejoined their rotation without a rehab start before in the past. We'll know more about his status in the coming days.
