Billy Butler hit a pinch-hit go-ahead two-run homer in a 6-4 win over the Indians on Friday night.

The clutch blast came with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was just his fourth home run of the season. While the 28-year-old played the role of hero for the Royals on this night, he's been one of the game's most disappointing players with a weak .266/.320/.353 batting line.

D.J. LeMahieu left Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks with a bruised left knee.

He came out in the sixth inning after going 0-for-1 with a pair of walks. LeMaheiu landed awkwardly on his knee after diving for a single by Paul Goldschmidt. He'll have an MRI on Monday. Daniel Descalso replaced LeMahieu at second base and will probably start there during his absence. LeMahieu's .327 average is tied for third-best in the National League.

Gerrit Cole (triceps) threw off a mound on Sunday for the first time since going on the disabled list.

Pitching coach Ray Searage said Cole was "very, very good" and actually had to reel him in a bit so he wouldn't re-injure himself. The right-hander threw 15 fastballs while emphasizing timing and a consistent delivery. He's expected to throw two more bullpen sessions during the Pirates' upcoming road trip. After that Cole will be reevaluated in hopes of beginning a rehab assignment. There's no timetable for his return.

According to John Perrotto of FanRag Sports, the Pirates aren't looking to shop Andrew McCutchen until the offseason.

The Pirates have been plummeting in the NL Central race, fueling speculation that the Bucs will become sellers at the trade deadline. They still might—Francisco Liriano and Mark Melancon are logical trade candidates—but McCutchen won't be part of that discussion. However, the team could entertain offers for McCutchen this winter in anticipation of top outfield prospect Austin Meadows' big-league debut in 2017. McCutchen is having his worst season, though he did bop a pair of home runs Saturday off Dodgers right-hander Kenta Maeda.

David Freese walloped a three-run double in the second inning on Sunday, leading the Pirates to a 4-3 victory over Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night, but proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Freese continues to excel in the middle of the Pirates lineup, slashing .290/.369/.448 with six bombs and 30 RBI.

Mark Reynolds blasted a walk-off two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Rockies to a 9-7 victory over the Diamondbacks.

The Rockies clubbed four home runs in total on the afternoon, with Trevor Story's game-tying blast in the seventh and Reynolds' game winner proving to be the difference. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and also delivered a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. He has been a very valuable addition to the Rockies lineup this season, slashing a healthy .291/.356/.462 with eight long balls and 31 RBI.

Conor Gillaspie hit a walkoff RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Giants beat the Phillies 8-7 on Sunday afternoon in San Francisco.

Gillaspie drove in Ramiro Pena, who had slapped a one-out double a couple pitches before. Gillaspie also had a single and he got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third, finishing the day 2-for-4 with two big RBI. He will continue to get regular playing time while Matt Duffy recovers from an Achilles strain and is worth consideration in NL-only fantasy formats.

Matt Carpenter blasted a pair of bombs at Safeco Field on Sunday, helping to power the Cardinals to an 11-6 victory over the Mariners.

As a team, the Cardinals socked six dingers in the contest. Carpenter's first solo shot came in the sixth inning, extending their lead to 6-3. He then capped off the game's scoring with another solo blast off Vidal Nuno in the ninth. Carpenter also tripled in the contest, finishing the day 3-for-6 with three runs scored. He's having another outstanding season atop the Cardinals lineup, slashing .300/.419/.585 with 13 long balls and 47 RBI.

Bud Norris was superb in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Mets, hurling seven innings of shutout ball.

The eight strikeouts marked a season-high for Norris. He scattered four hits and did not walk a batter over his seven innings of work. Since entering the starting rotation at the beginning of June, the 31-year-old right-hander has allowed more than two runs just once in five starts (he allowed three in the outlier). He will look to continue this nice roll in a home showdown with the Marlins next time he toes the rubber.

Tanner Roark fired seven shutout innings Sunday in the Nationals' 3-2 defeat of the Brewers.

Roark scattered seven hits -- two doubles, five singles -- and one walk across his seven scoreless frames. He struck out seven. The 29-year-old right-hander has been a nice surprise for the Nationals this season, now with a 2.96 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 89/32 K/BB ratio in 100 1/3 innings. He finished with a 4.38 ERA in 2015. Next is a home start versus the Reds.

Chris Davis connected for a first-inning grand slam in Sunday's 12-5 win over the Rays.

Davis launched his granny off of Rays starter Drew Smyly in the first inning. He would later add a single to finish 2-for-4. The slugger is working to a .240/.355/.498 triple-slash with 18 homers and an even 50 RBI over 267 at-bats. It will take a nice second-half power push to reach the 47 dingers he hit in 2015.

Oswaldo Arcia went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a two-run double in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Arcia came over from the Twins in a trade on Friday. He failed to pick up a hit in his first three at-bats with his new club, but came through in a big way on Sunday. He notched a solo home run in the fourth inning and a two-run double in the fifth to finish with three RBI. In 103 at-bats with the Twins prior to the trade, the 25-year-old outfielder was hitting just .214/.289/.369 with four homers and 12 RBI. He is young enough and talented enough that his career shouldn't be considered a lost cause yet, though it is off to a rocky enough start.
