Michael Wacha came within one out of a no-hitter Tuesday in the Cardinals' 2-0 defeat of the Nationals.

Ryan Zimmerman hit a two-out infield single in the top of the ninth inning that hopped just over Wacha's outstretched glove. It was still a thrilling night for the 22-year-old right-hander, who was drafted 19th overall by the Cardinals in 2012. He yielded just the one hit and two walks while striking out nine. Wacha boasts a 2.78 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 65 strikeouts in his first 64 2/3 major league innings and may have earned himself a spot in St. Louis' postseason rotation.

Francisco Liriano was brilliant in Tuesday’s Wild Card game versus the Reds, tossing seven frames of one-run ball in the 6-2 victory.

Liriano was virtually unhittable, throwing slider after slider while mixing in the occasional mid-90s fastball just to keep batters honest. He allowed just four hits, walked one and struck out five in the gem. Liriano will now likely be in line to pitch Game 3 of the NLDS against the Cardinals on Sunday. A.J. Burnett will get the ball on Thursday in Game 1.

Russell Martin went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Tuesday's Wild Card win over the Reds.

Marlon Byrd got the scoring started with a solo blast in the second, and Martin belted another one after a Pedro Alvarez lineout. He reached on an infield single in his next at-bat before blasting a no-doubter in the seventh. Martin has been a huge addition for the Pirates, hitting 15 homers during the season while providing Gold Glove-caliber defense.

CBS Sports' Danny Knobler reports that the Rangers are expected to target impending free agent Brian McCann this offseason.

Knobler says that the Rangers "have repeatedly tried to trade for McCann" and "had scouts following the Braves closely" in order to watch the catcher. With Evan Gattis around, the Braves are not expected to make a serious effort at re-signing McCann, but you can bet that other teams will be in on the bidding.

Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his left labrum, capsule and a partial tear to his rotator cuff.

It's no surprise, as Hultzen missed most of the season with shoulder issues and had multiple setbacks. The Mariners have offered no timetable for his return, but it's obviously a major procedure. It would be a surprise if he did anything for the big club next season.

Yoenis Cespedes (shoulder) expects to start Friday in Game 1 of the A's ALDS matchup with Detroit.

Cespedes tested his right shoulder in batting practice on Tuesday and reported feeling fine. He hit a few balls out of the park and several hard line drives.

Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik said Tuesday that Kendrys Morales will "definitely" receive a qualifying offer.

It's going to be a one-year contract offer worth around $14 million. If Morales declines and then signs with another team, the Mariners will get a top draft pick as compensation. If he accepts, it's a low-risk one-year deal for a semi-productive designated hitter.

A.J. Griffin has been left off the A's ALDS roster.

Griffin was one of Oakland's most consistent and reliable starters this year, but he's been battling elbow tendinitis for the past couple weeks. The American League West champs will go with a rotation of Bartolo Colon, Sonny Gray, Jarrod Parker and Dan Straily against the Tigers.
Oct 1 - 4:25 PM

Bartolo Colon will start for the A's in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday against the Tigers.

Colon earned that start by going 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 30 regular-season outings. He'll be followed by Sonny Gray in Game 2, Jarrod Parker in Game 3 and Dan Straily in Game 4. Colon would return for a Game 5.

MLB.com's Mark Bowman was told by a source that Dan Uggla will be left off the Braves' NLDS roster.

Uggla batted just .103/.290/.134 with one homer, four RBI and 39 strikeouts over his final 124 regular-season plate appearances this season. He's owed $26 million over the next two years. Elliot Johnson will serve as Atlanta's starting second baseman in October.

Padres manager Bud Black said Chase Headley had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday morning.

Black added that Headley came out of the surgery fine, and the expectation is that he'll have plenty of time to get ready for spring training. The 29-year-old third baseman is coming off a disappointing year in which he batted just .250/.347/.400 with 13 home runs and 50 RBI over 141 games, but injuries had a lot to do with it.

Max Scherzer will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Athletics on Friday.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland will trust Scherzer with the opening game after he went 21-3 with a 2.90 ERA and 240/56 K/BB ratio over 214 1/3 innings during the regular season. He'll be followed by Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez, and Doug Fister. This sets Scherzer up to start a potential deciding Game 5.
