Max Scherzer blanked the Pirates for eight innings, striking out 14, to earn his 14th win Thursday.

Scherzer struck out 14 for the third time in his career, falling one K short of his career high of 15, also against the Pirates, on May 20, 2012. He was also the fifth pitcher to strike out at least 14 in a game this season. Interestingly, he came back out for the eighth at 108 pitches in this one. A week ago, there was much controversy after he was taken out after 106 pitches in a 2-1 game going to the ninth. Joe Nathan blew the lead in that one, and the Tigers lost in extra innings. Scherzer ended up at 121 pitches today, the first time this year and seventh time ever that he's hit the 120 mark. The Tigers turned a 2-0 lead into a 5-0 lead in the bottom of the eighth and won 5-2 after Phil Coke gave up a homer in the ninth.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 and crunched two solo home runs to lead his team over the Rays 5-1 on Wednesday.

The second baseman twice went yard against starter Nathan Eovaldi in the contest. His power bat has come alive of late although he is still well behind the pace he set the last two seasons. Everything else is right where his fantasy owners were hoping for on draft day. He leads the majors with a .347 batting average with seven home runs, 39 RBI and 49 runs scored. He has stolen 11 bases in 13 attempts.

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 and drilled a walk-off, two-run home run against the Mariners on Wednesday.

Didi Gregorius singled with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and Stanton followed with a massive longball way past the center field wall to win the game. Stanton has been hot with the bat lately and has his line up to .255/.329/.504 with 18 homers and 42 RBI on the season.

Wednesday's game between the Pirates and Brewers has been postponed.

There was hope that the game could be played, but ultimately there was too much rain and not enough of a window for it to start. There's no word yet as to when the game will be rescheduled.

Shelby Miller (elbow) is likely to start on Monday against the Marlins.

Matt Koch was sent to Triple-A Reno on Wednesday, and reliever Jake Barrett was Koch's replacement. That sets things up for Miller to start for the Diamondbacks against the Marlins, and it'll be his first start since 2017 after undergoing Tommy John surgery last April. He owns a 4.66 ERA in those rehab starts, but he's also struck out 28 hitters in 19 1/3 innings. Miller will likely be working on strict pitch/inning counts, but when fully healthy, he's shown swing-and-miss stuff. He's an interesting speculative buy for the 2018 campaign.

Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a 6-5 victory over the Marlins on Wednesday.

Belt's RBI came on a ground-rule double, and he had two more singles in the contest. The three hits push his average to .305 on the 2018 campaign, and it's his 35th RBI in 58 games with the Giants. He's looked like the same hitter he was before the emergency appendectomy, and somewhat quietly, he's been one of the best first baseman in all of baseball in 2018.

An MRI revealed that Jay Bruce is dealing with a strain in his right hip.

Bruce was placed on the disabled list on June 19 -- retroactive to June 18 -- with a hip injury after missing four of the past five games with discomfort in his hip and back. Signed to a $39 million, three-year deal in the offseason, Bruce is hitting .212/.292/.321 with three homers and 17 RBI in 236 plate appearances with the Mets. He should be back with New York by the end of June.

Jon Lester limited the Dodgers to five hits over seven scoreless innings Wednesday in the Cubs’ 4-0 victory.

Lester mostly pitched to contact, recording just one strikeout against three walks. Seventy of the left-hander’s season-high 119 pitches went for strikes. Lester only set the Dodgers down in order once—that was his last inning—but managed to keep L.A. off the scoreboard nonetheless (the Dodgers left seven men on base). Lester has pitched to an impressive 1.64 ERA during his five-start winning streak. He’ll look to make it six straight next Tuesday against the same Dodgers team he just beat.

Javier Baez delivered three hits and a stolen base Wednesday in the Cubs’ victory over the Dodgers.

All three of his hits went for extra bases. Baez doubled in the second, doubled and scored in the fifth and tripled and scored in the seventh. He also made a great play in the field, diving to double up Enrique Hernandez at second base in the eighth inning. Baez is in the midst of a breakout season for the Cubs, tying for third in the NL in triples (six) and fifth in steals (13). Don’t be surprised if he represents Chicago at next month’s All-Star Game.

Corey Kluber dominated Wednesday, allowing just one hit over seven shutout frames in the Indians’ 12-0 victory over the White Sox.

He racked up seven Ks and only walked one batter. Kluber probably had another inning in him—he left after 95 pitches—but manager Terry Francona played it safe with Cleveland staked to a commanding 11-0 lead. The only hit he gave up came in the second inning when Omar Narvaez plopped a two-out single to left field. The reigning AL Cy Young winner leads the majors with 11 victories and also ranks second in WHIP (0.81) and fifth in ERA (2.10). He gets the Cardinals in his next start Monday at Busch Stadium.

Ryan Braun is undergoing a cyrotherapy session on his right thumb and will not be with the team on Wednesday.

It's a procedure that Braun has undergone before, and it doesn't sound like it's a serious injury. The plan is for the veteran to rejoin the Brewers in Milwaukee; and the team will be back in their home park starting on Thursday to face the Cardinals. There's a chance Braun could miss more than the two games with the injection, but it doesn't sound like he'll need to be placed on the disabled list.

Jose Ramirez slammed his 22nd homer Wednesday in the Indians’ win over Chicago.

Ramirez got Cleveland on the board with a three-run bomb in the first inning. He also walked and stole a base in the fifth before scoring on Yonder Alonso’s RBI double. Ramirez was intentionally walked in the sixth and scored later in the frame on a wild pitch by Bruce Rondon. The 25-year-old now ranks second in the AL in homers (22), fourth in RBI (50), fourth in slugging (.611) and fourth in OPS (1.002). He’s right there with Mike Trout and Mookie Betts in the AL MVP race.
