Aroldis Chapman was called upon in the seventh inning on Sunday and recorded the final eight outs as the Cubs clung to a one-run advantage over the Indians in Game 5 of the World Series.

If manager Joe Maddon was going to lose on Sunday, it was going to be with his best bullpen arm on the mound. Chapman was summoned with a man on second base and one out in the seventh inning, and he quickly put out the fire. The Indians threatened again in the eighth inning, getting Rajai Davis as far as third base with two outs, but the Indians were unable to cash him in. He allowed just one hit over 2 2/3 innings while striking out four. Chapman now boasts a 2.08 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 18/5 K/BB ratio across 13 innings in the postseason.

Rockies placed 2B DJ LeMahieu on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Obliques are notoriously tough injuries to handicap, and for players to overcome, so there exists no timetable for his return at this point. Garrett Hampson was promoted to take his place, and started at the keystone for the Rox on Saturday.

Yoenis Cespedes will undergo an MRI and is set to see a foot specialist early next week for continuing heel issues.

Cespedes returned to the Mets' lineup Friday and homered, but the high was short-lived -- he was back on the bench Saturday with foot issues, and now it sounds as though the issues are not to be taken lightly. Lower-body issues have become the norm for the slugger, who has aged very quickly in recent years. Despite only being activated Friday, Cespedes may be headed back to the DL, depending on how things go next week.

J.D. Martinez is sitting out Saturday's game against the Tigers due to "general soreness."

Martinez ran into the outfield wall during Friday's game and reportedly had his midsection wrapped up ahead of Saturday's game, but no tests were run, per Red Sox manager Alex Cora, and he's expected to be back in there Sunday. Doesn't sound like there's anything to see here.

Matt Carpenter homered for the fifth consecutive game on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Cardinals to victory over the Cubs.

Carpenter is the hottest hitter on the planet at the moment. He entered the contest having hit six home runs in his last four games, and continued his onslaught with a solo shot off of Tyler Chatwood in the third inning. He also drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the day 1-for-3 plus a walk. His early-season struggles are completely in the rearview mirror and he has raised his season slash to .275/.383/.583 to go along with 24 homers and 52 RBI.

Aaron Judge clobbered his 26th home run of the season as the Yankees topped the Mets 7-5 on Saturday afternoon.

Judge swatted a solo homer off of Timothy Peterson in the seventh inning that increased the Yankees' lead to 6-3. He also singled and doubled in the ballgame, finishing the afternoon 3-for-4. With the three-hit attack, Judge is now slashing a mighty .286/.398/.558 with the aforementioned 26 homers and 61 RBI.

Aroldis Chapman melted down in a non-save situation against the Mets on Saturday, surrendering three runs on a hit and three walks without recording an out.

Chapman was called upon with the Yankees holding a 7-3 lead in the ninth inning, and he proceeded to walk the leadoff hitter, Kevin Plawecki. After Amed Rosario followed with an infield single, Chapman walked Ty Kelly on four straight pitches to load the bases. Then he walked Jose Reyes on four pitches to force in a run. After that, he went to a 3-0 count before hitting Brandon Nimmo to force in another run. That's when Yankees' manager Aaron Boone mercifully pulled the plug and handed the ball over to Chasen Shreve. Just three of the 19 pitches that Chapman threw went for strikes. You hope that he just had an off-day and that everything is fine physically, but pay attention to the news after the game to be sure.

Athletics acquired RHP Jeurys Familia from the Mets for RHP Bobby Wahl, 3B William Toffey and international slot money.

The trade became widely known late Friday but was finally finalized Saturday afternoon. The return for their former closer isn't much for the Mets, but they did well to get some pieces for Familia before he hits the free agent market this winter. In Oakland, Familia should serve as a bridge to closer Blake Treinen, further bolstering an already-strong A's bullpen.

Red Sox activated 3B Rafael Devers from the 10-day disabled list.

As expected, Devers will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers. The 21-year-old third baseman was hitting .241/.292/.424 with 14 homers, 48 RBI and five stolen bases prior to landing on the disabled list on July 12 with left shoulder inflammation.

Cardinals placed RHP Carlos Martinez on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Martinez suffered the injury during his miserable outing against the Cubs on Thursday. It's unclear how long the 26-year-old hurler will be sidelined, but oblique injuries generally tend to linger for a couple of weeks. Martinez has made 17 starts for the Cardinals this season, registering a 3.39 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 89/48 K/BB ratio over 95 2/3 innings while beaning a league-high 11 batters.

Jose Ramirez became the first MLB player to reach 30 home runs on the season as the Indians defeated the Rangers in 11 innings on Friday night.

Ramirez accomplished the feat with a solo shot off of Martin Perez that tied the game at 4-4 in the sixth inning. He was also instrumental in the Indians' game-winning rally in the 11th inning, as he socked a leadoff double then dashed home on a single by Edwin Encarnacion. Ramirez has been on a power surge, as he now has six home runs in his last seven games. He has also already set a new career-high with the 30 long balls. Ramirez is having a phenomenal season at the dish, slashing .302/.400/.635 with 30 homers, 71 RBI and 20 stolen bases.

Manny Machado went 2-for-3 with two walks in his Dodgers’ debut Friday against the Brewers.

Machado poked an opposite-field single through the shift in his first at-bat in the first inning. He walked in his next two plate appearances before singling again in the seventh. He batted second in his Dodgers’ debut on Friday, but manager Dave Roberts said he could also be used out of the No. 3 spot in the order. The ballpark change isn’t ideal from a fantasy perspective, but he remains in a good spot to knock in runs.
