Roman Quinn left Tuesday's game against the Braves with a strained left oblique.

Quinn was 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored before departing in the sixth inning. The injury is almost certainly going to end his cup of coffee with the Phillies, given that oblique strains typically require 3-4 weeks of rest and rehab. Quinn, a highly-regarded outfield prospect, batted .263/.373/.333 with four doubles and five stolen bases over his first 15 major leagues.

Raul Mondesi walked, stole a base and scored the game-winning run in the 11th inning as the Royals outlasted the Twins 4-3 on Tuesday.

Mondesi wasn't even a starter Tuesday, entering in the late stages after Cheslor Cuthbert was pinch-run for. Mondesi got a chance to hit in the 11th, though, and drew a leadoff walk. He then stole second base -- his ninth steal of the year -- and came around to score on a sacrifice fly four batters later. The 21-year-old should compete for a roster spot, possibly even the starting second base gig, next spring.

Jay Bruce went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer as the Mets rolled over the Marlins 12-1 on Tuesday.

Bruce snapped out of a deep funk with a pinch-hit homer in Saturday's game against the Phillies, and he's now 6-for-14 with two homers, three RBI, and four runs scored in his last four games including that pinch-hit appearance. It's coming at just the right time for the Mets, too, as they angle for a Wild Card spot. They'll need Bruce, who now has 31 total homers and 94 total runs scored, firing on all cylinders if they hope to make a deep run in October.

Justin Verlander faced little resistance from the Indians on Tuesday, punching out a season-high 12 batters over 7 2/3 shutout frames in a 12-0 victory.

The Indians sent out their "hangover" lineup a day after clinching the American League Central, but Verlander and the Wild Card-hunting Tigers aren't going to complain. The righty yielded just four singles and one walk on the day, as the Tribe reached second base just once all night. Of course, Verlander could have easily done this against any lineup with the way he's been pitching. He boasts a 1.93 ERA and 48/9 K/BB ratio over 32 2/3 innings in September and easily leads the American League with his 246 strikeouts. Assuming the Tigers still need a start from him, Verlander will get the Braves in Atlanta on Sunday.

Miguel Cabrera fell a triple shy of the cycle and drove in five runs in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Miggy doubled in two runs in the first inning, launched a three-run homer in the second, was intentionally walked in the fourth and singled in the seventh. He was pulled after the seventh in the Tigers' blowout win, potentially costing him a shot at an unlikely triple and cycle. Cabrera's 35 home runs is easily his highest total since his MVP season in 2013.
Sep 27 - 10:37 PM

Aaron Sanchez struck out 10 batters while spinning six innings of one-run ball in Tuesday's 5-1 victory over the Orioles.

It was an intriguing pitching matchup with Sanchez and Kevin Gausman going up against two good offenses, but Sanchez easily bested his counterpart in this one. The righty walked three but permitted only five hits to go along with his 10 punchouts. He's posted quality starts in four of his last five tries and has yielded just one run in each of his last two outings, as Sanchez doesn't appear to be tiring down the stretch. He'll face the Red Sox Sunday to finish out the regular season.
Sep 27 - 10:32 PM

Josh Donaldson clubbed a two-run homer and reached base four times in Tuesday's victory over the Orioles.

The Blue Jays didn't waste any time in getting to Kevin Gausman as Ezequiel Carrera walked to lead off the bottom of the first inning and Donaldson followed with his 37th dinger of the campaign. The third baseman also added a single and a couple walks, as he reached base in all of his trips to the plate. Donaldson probably isn't going to win back-to-back American League MVP awards, but he's had another remarkable season.
Sep 27 - 10:22 PM

Max Scherzer struck out 10 batters and held the Diamondbacks to two runs over six frames to earn his 19th win of the season in a 4-2 victory.

Scherzer served up a home run to Jean Segura to lead off the game and then yielded an RBI double to Welington Castillo in the third. He settled in after that, though, and the Nationals' offense finally went to work in the sixth inning with four runs. Scherzer hasn't lost since August 9. The right-hander will have one final tune-up on Sunday before starting Game 1 of the NLDS versus the Dodgers on October 7.
Sep 27 - 10:10 PM

Corey Kluber has been diagnosed with a mild quadriceps strain and is expected to miss 7-10 days.

Kluber left his start Monday against the Tigers with what was originally described as a groin injury. He won't take another turn in the rotation before the end of the regular season, but his final start this weekend was probably going to be an abbreviated one anyway. This diagnosis is mostly positive news for the American League Central-champion Indians, as Kluber should be fine -- or something close to find -- for the ALDS. Game 1 is nine days away.
Sep 27 - 10:06 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced Tuesday that Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 of the NLDS against the Nationals.

Rich Hill will start Game 2 and Kenta Maeda will take Game 3. Rookie left-hander Julio Urias is a possibility for Game 4. Kershaw has registered a tremendous 0.86 ERA with 23 strikeouts in 21 innings (four starts) since returning from a herniated disc on September 9. He went seven scoreless innings against the Rockies in his latest turn.
Sep 27 - 8:17 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is only expected to miss 2-3 days.

Nunez was sent for an MRI on Monday after injuring his right hamstring on a slide in Sunday's series finale against the Padres. The exam apparently showed nothing serious. Conor Gillaspie is starting at third base for the Giants on Tuesday night against Colorado.
