Neil Walker and Gaby Sanchez hit back-to-back homers twice Monday before the game between the Pirates and Cubs was suspended due to rain with the score 7-7 after six innings.

The game will pick up where it left off at 5:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday. Before play concluded tonight, 10 homers were hit, including six by the Pirates. Starling Marte and Travis Snider also went deep for Pittsburgh. Sanchez's homers were his first two of the year, and it bodes well that he's having the big game in a start against a (usually) tough righty in Homer Bailey. He might get a crack at regular playing time at first base.

Matt Wieters went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI as the Orioles took the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays by the score of 8-6.

Wieters, who didn't start the first game of the doubleheader, made his start count, smashing a two-run homer off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi in the fourth inning before adding a solo shot off reliever Danny Farquhar in the eighth. Wieters now has nine big flies on the year, batting .278/.332/.471 through 53 games.

Jose Altuve's epic season rolls on as he smacked four hits, including a home run and two doubles, in Saturday's 13-5 thrashing of the Royals.

Altuve is now batting .348 with 13 home runs and a .994 OPS. Add in his 54 runs scored, 44 RBI and 18 stolen bases and you get possibly the most valuable player in fantasy baseball this year. Not bad for the smallest player in the game. He is only two homers behind his career high set last year.

Kelly Johnson's solo home run broke a scoreless tie in the 11th inning Saturday, leading the Mets to a 1-0 victory over the Braves.

Johnson led off the 11th inning as a pinch-hitter, and he took reliever Dario Alvarez deep for what turned out to be the only run of the contest. The homer was Johnson's third of the season and his second with the Mets; his first came as a member of the Braves, the team he defeated Saturday. The utilityman is batting .233/.297/.347 overall.

DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored as the Rockies pounded the Diamondbacks 11-6 on Saturday.

LeMahieu had one of the team's three home runs on the day, his fifth homer of the year. The second baseman has been terrific in his last six games, going 13-for-28 with four RBI and five runs scored. The good stretch is a microcosm of what has been a stellar first half for the 27-year-old, who's batting .328/.392/.500 with 46 runs scored overall.

Andrew McCutchen hit a solo homer in the fourth inning, then trumped that with a three-run bomb in the sixth to carry the Pirates to a 6-1 victory over the Dodgers on Saturday.

The two home runs give McCutchen 12 for the season. He has been a major disappointment for his fantasy owners so far this year but he gave them a big treat today. McCutchen played poorly in the early part of last season before coming on strong in the second half, perhaps today is an indication he will repeat that cycle this year. He is now batting .243 with 41 runs, 32 RBI and only two steals.

Chris Carter went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and two runs scored as the Brewers edged the Nationals 6-5 on Saturday.

Carter's three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning got the scoring started. It was his 19th homer of the season -- third-most in the National League -- giving him 47 RBI and 36 runs scored. The 29-year-old is batting .229/.305/.508 in 72 games this season.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has removed Trevor Rosenthal from the closer role.

It's jarring to see one of the best closers in baseball demoted to a setup role but Matheny is making the right move. Rosenthal has unraveled this month, pitching to a nightmarish 14.14 ERA over his last 10 outings. Friday's meltdown against Seattle was the nail in the coffin. Matheny says the Cardinals will go with a closer by committee with Seung Hwan Oh, Jonathan Broxton and Kevin Siegrist all getting save chances. All three are worth speculative adds. Rosenthal is too good to be banished from the ninth inning permanently, but it may take some time for him to win back Matheny's trust.

Justin Bour homered in his third straight game, racking up three RBI, as the Marlins outlasted the Cubs 9-6 on Saturday.

Bour is as hot as the day is long, as he's now got four homers in his last six games and is hitting .339 with five homers, 17 RBI and 11 runs scored in the month of June. His home run Saturday was a two-run job, and he also added an RBI double. Bour has 10 home runs, 43 RBI and 27 runs scored with a .273/.342/.535 line on the year.

Stephen Strasburg (back) has been scratched from his scheduled start Sunday against the Brewers.

Strasburg was hoping to return Sunday after missing his last start Monday against the Dodgers but his back flared up again. After his latest setback, Strasburg is likely headed to the disabled list. Tanner Roark has been tabbed as Sunday's starter. He'll try to help the Nationals end their seven-game losing streak.

Drew Pomeranz threw seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits, to lead the Padres to a 3-0 victory over the Reds on Saturday.

Pomeranz yielded a double and two singles on the afternoon, walking just one while striking out six. He also helped himself at the plate, hitting his first home run of the year and collecting two RBI. Pitching is what he's best at, though, and the 27-year-old is now 7-7 with a 2.76 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 102/39 K/BB ratio over 88 innings of work. He'll try to continue his breakout first half Saturday against the Yankees.

Carlos Carrasco threw a four-hit, complete-game shutout in a 6-0 win over the Tigers on Saturday.

Carrasco has gotten progressively better with each start this month, and on Saturday he gave up just four hits and a walk while striking out seven. The complete game was his first this year and the seventh of his career. Carrasco improved to 3-2 with a 2.73 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 49/13 K/BB ratio over 56 innings of work. He'll try to keep rolling Thursday against the Blue Jays.
