Buster Posey hit a walk-off two-run homer in the ninth inning to send the Giants to a 4-2 victory over the Rockies on Wednesday.

It was his second career walk-off homer. The catcher finished 3-for-5 with three RBI. Posey hit his 16th and 17th home runs on Tuesday, and his 18th tonight -- he's one of many pro batters that practices gratitude for the existence of Rockies' pitchers. During his seven-game hitting streak, Posey is 15-for-31 (.484) with five homers and 10 RBI.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told Jim Bowden of MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that he is not willing to meet the Marlins' asking price on J.T. Realmuto.

This could be posturing, but Rizzo was pretty direct: "They’ve got a great player in Realmuto," said the Nats' GM. "They’re not going to sell him cheap. We know what the return has to be on Realmuto, and we’re not willing to meet that price. So unless something changes there, on their end, we’re going to go with [Matt] Wieters when he gets healthy and a combination of [Pedro] Severino and [Spencer] Kieboom to back him up." Realmuto, 27, is batting .297/.355/.524 with nine home runs and 27 RBI in 54 games this season for a Marlins team that stands 29-46. He is under club control through 2020.

Khris Davis (illness) is back in the A's starting lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Davis will DH and bat cleanup against White Sox right-hander James Shields after missing one game with a stomach bug. The 30-year-old slugger boasts an .850 OPS with 20 home runs and 49 RBI in 64 games this season.

White Sox activated OF Avisail Garcia from the 10-day disabled list.

Garcia will return to the White Sox active roster for Friday's doubleheader against the A's after missing nearly two months with a Grade 2 strain of his right hamstring. The 27-year-old outfielder was batting just .233/.250/.315 in 76 plate appearances before the injury, but he's capable of much better results moving forward. Garcia went 9-for-25 (.360) with three home runs, three doubles, and nine RBI on his seven-game minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte.

An MRI taken Thursday on Michael Wacha's left oblique showed a "moderate" strain.

That's relatively good news, but Wacha could still miss over a month of action. The 26-year-old right-hander suffered the injury in the fourth inning of his start Wednesday against the Phillies and was placed on the disabled list Thursday. He was sporting a strong 8-2 record, 3.20 ERA, and 71 strikeouts through 64 1/3 innings (15 starts) this season with the Cardinals, who will either turn to John Gant, Daniel Poncedeleon, or Dakota Hudson to fill the vacant rotation spot.

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) is aiming to start Monday against the Royals or Tuesday against the Red Sox.

That makeup-game matchup in Kansas City would obviously be more favorable for fantasy purposes. Skaggs was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday night against the Blue Jays after experiencing some tightness in his right hamstring, but it looks like he will avoid the disabled list. The 26-year-old left-hander holds an impressive 2.81 ERA and 86/24 K/BB ratio in 80 innings (14 starts) this season with the Angels.

Luis Valbuena went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three total RBI in Thursday's 8-5 win over the Blue Jays.

Valbuena connected for his first home run of the game (a two-run shot) off of John Axford with two outs in the fifth inning. He would follow that up with a solo home run to lead off the seventh inning. This was the veteran infielder's second two-homer game of the year and his first contest with a long ball since May 29. He's up to eight dingers on the season. While Valbuena does have a decent little bit of pop -- he's cracked double-digit home runs in each of the past five seasons -- there's just not enough to cling to for consistent fantasy work. He is slashing .222/.271/.369 in 65 games this year.

Eric Thames went 2-for-5 with a three-run triple and two runs scored as the Brewers pounded the Cardinals 11-3 on Thursday.

Thames' big blow, which came well after the bell would have sounded to stop the fight, was indicative of the night as a whole -- a Brewers batter hit the ball, and a Cardinals fielder wasn't able to make the play. This one came in the seventh inning as Thames drove a John Gant pitch to deep center that Tommy Pham was only able to knock down to keep it from being a grand slam, instead providing Thames his first triple of the year. After a long layoff due to a UCL tear in his left thumb, Thames is back and is hitting .233/.330/.589 with nine homers, 20 RBI and 16 runs scored in 30 games played this year.

Madison Bumgarner fired off a gem in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Padres, striking out eight across eight scoreless innings while scattering three hits.

Just a dominant performance by the veteran ace, who finished off his eight innings having thrown a slickly economic 100 pitches (69 strikes). He walked two in the outing. At the dish, he also came up with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly to give the Giants a 1-0 lead. That would be the only run to score in the game before the home team tacked on two late insurance runs. This was by far MadBum's best outing in four tries since he was activated from the disabled list earlier this month. He missed the first two months of the season rehabbing a fractured left pinkie sustained in spring training. Thursday's start was a tantalizing reminder of what Bumgarner's capable of on a baseball mound. He'll try to build on this strong outing in a home showdown with the Rockies next time out.

Ketel Marte went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three runs scored as the Diamondbacks romped over the Pirates 9-3 on Thursday.

Marte socked a two-run shot in the first inning and scored runs in the third and ninth innings for good measure. The season threatened to get away from Marte after he was hitting .216/.273/.309 through May, but the 24-year-old has turned it around with a stellar June in which he's hitting .339 with five homers, 17 RBI and 18 runs scored. The good stretch has his overall line up to .246/.302/.418.

Jesse Winker hit a grand slam in a six-run sixth inning to help the Reds beat the Cubs 6-2 on Thursday.

The Reds rallied with two outs, pushing across a run with a bases loaded walk, but the Cubs still held a 2-1 lead when Winker stepped in against southpaw Randy Rosario. That changed with one swing, as Winker yanked an inside pitch over the right field wall for a grand slam that ended up being the difference in the game. The homer was the fourth of the year for Winker, who has 23 RBI and 24 runs scored. The 24-year-old is hitting .256/.367/.365 on the year.

Juan Soto hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the eighth inning to lead the Nationals to a 4-2 win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Mychal Givens, in his second inning of work, allowed a Bryce Harper double and a Trea Turner single before Soto stepped to the dish with one out. The 19-year-old then slapped an opposite-field double into the gap to plate both. Soto continues to impress and hold his own through 28 games in the bigs, batting .326/.426/.598 with six homers, 16 RBI and 18 runs scored. He's not going anywhere any time soon.
