Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a game-winning, two-run home run in the 10th inning to lead the Cubs past the Brewers 5-3 on Thursday.

Oliver Drake threw Bryant a high, straight, 91-mph fastball, and the slugger knew what to do with it, crushing it out to the deepest part of the ballpark. The homer was Bryant's 28th of the season, giving him 69 RBI and 105 runs scored. He's been especially hot since the start of the Mets series eight days ago, going 13-for-33 with three doubles, three homers, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored to raise his overall line to .292/.406/.536.

Domingo Santana was everywhere for the Brewers on Thursday, going 2-for-5 with a double, a homer, a stolen base and two runs scored in a loss to the Cubs.

Santana's 28th homer of the season got the Brewers on the scoreboard in the fourth inning, and he almost single-handedly gave his team the lead in the eighth when he doubled and then stole third base to put himself 90 feet away from scoring. An Eric Thames RBI single that plated Santana gave the Brewers a late lead, but they couldn't hang on, and it was actually Santana who faltered in a big spot in the ninth, striking out with the bases loaded and one out. Failures have been few and far between for the 25-year-old in what's been a breakout year, as he's now hitting .281/.374/.505 with those 28 homers, 80 RBI, 84 runs scored and 14 steals overall.

Jake Arrieta (hamstring) allowed one run over five innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Brewers.

Arrieta gave up a solo homer to Domingo Santana among five hits, but all in all it was a successful return to the mound after a few weeks away. Arrieta struck out two while walking one, throwing 71 pitches in the outing. He remains 14-9 with a 3.43 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 159/54 K/BB ratio through 29 starts, and a start Tuesday at the Cardinals should serve as another tune-up session ahead of the postseason for the 31-year-old.
Sep 22 - 1:38 AM

Zach Davies limited the Cubs to two runs over seven innings but didn't earn his 18th win of the season Thursday, settling for a no-decision.

Davies left in line for the win, which would have put him alone atop the National League wins leaderboard, but the Cubs rallied in the ninth inning to tie the game and eventually won in extras. Davies will have to settle for pitching a good game, which he did, scattering seven hits and walking two while striking out three. Through 32 starts, the 24-year-old is 17-9 with a 3.84 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. He'll have a better shot at earning that 18th win Wednesday when he takes on the Reds.
Sep 22 - 1:34 AM

Joe Mauer went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored to help the Twins beat up on the Tigers 12-1 on Thursday.

Mauer bopped a two-run double in the sixth inning to extend the Twins' lead, one of the team's 14 hits on the night. It's no surprise that Mauer had three of them, as he's been lighting the world on fire this month. Coming into Thursday's game, the 34-year-old was hitting .375/.418/.514 in September, and after it he's batting .311/.388/.427 overall. In a year with some really terrific reclamation projects, none are better to see than Mauer's.
Sep 22 - 1:28 AM

Eduardo Escobar went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

It took a while for the Twins to break through, but Escobar's run-scoring double in the fourth inning opened the floodgates in the 12-1 thumping. Escobar also reached base and scored in the seventh and eighth innings as the Twins piled on. The 28-year-old is quietly having a decent offensive year, batting .251/.309/.440 with 19 homers, 64 RBI and 58 runs scored after Thursday.
Sep 22 - 1:23 AM

Robbie Grossman went 1-for-3 with an RBI sac fly, a stolen base and two runs scored in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.

The stolen base was just the third of the year for Grossman. The 28-year-old has been finding his way into the lineup with some frequency this year, and he's responded by hitting .246/.366/.385 with nine homers in 112 games.
Sep 22 - 1:19 AM

Adalberto Mejia (biceps) held the Tigers to one run over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision Thursday.

Mejia scattered four hits and a walk while striking out five, and if it weren't for him still working to rebuild endurance he may have finally gotten his first win of the second half. As it is, the 24-year-old will just have to settle for a team win and a moral victory. Through 20 starts, Mejia holds a 4.48 ERA and 1.55 WHIP, and he'll keep searching for that first second-half win Wednesday against the Indians.
Sep 22 - 1:14 AM

Jordan Zimmermann (neck) allowed three runs on five hits over four innings in a loss to the Twins on Thursday.

Zimmermann got through the Twins' order the first time without issue, but they got to him for three runs in his fourth and final frame of the evening. Only one of the hits, and Eduardo Escobar double, was for extra bases, so it's not as though he got shelled out there. Still, the loss moved his record to 8-13 with a 6.19 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 28 starts overall. Mercifully, a start against the Royals on Wednesday should be the last in 2017 for the 31-year-old.
Sep 22 - 1:11 AM

Dexter Fowler finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Cardinals outlasted the Reds 8-5 on Thursday.

Fowler had three of the Cardinals' 14 hits on the night, the fourth time in his last five games he's collected multiple hits. He's also driven in multiple runs in each of his last four contests. The hot stretch has the Cardinals' middle-of-the-order hitter batting .270/.367/.504 with 18 homers, 61 RBI, 67 runs scored and six steals in 111 games this year.
Sep 22 - 1:06 AM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a homer as the Rangers topped the Mariners 4-2 on Thursday night in Seattle.

Beltre's solo shot off of Dan Altavilla in the sixth inning increased the Rangers' lead to 3-0 and would prove to be the difference in the ballgame. With his two-hit attack, he's now slashing a robust .314/.386/.543 with 17 homers and 70 RBI in just 88 games this season.
Sep 22 - 1:05 AM

Shin-Soo Choo clubbed his 20th home run of the season on Thursday as the Rangers dispatched of the Mariners.

His solo shot off of Emilio Pagan increased the Rangers' lead to 4-0 in the seventh inning. He also singled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. The veteran outfielder has had a nice comeback season, slashing .264/.359/.421 with 20 long balls and 75 RBI.
Sep 22 - 1:05 AM

Keone Kela earned his second save of the season on Thursday despite serving up a solo homer to Robinson Cano.

The 24-year-old was tasked with protecting a three-run lead in the ninth inning and made things interesting by allowing the solo shot to Cano, but was able to navigate through the heart of the M's order without further trouble. He sports an impressive 2.95 ERA and 0.95 WHIP on the season.
Sep 22 - 1:05 AM

Cole Hamels was dominant in Thursday's victory over the Mariners, allowing just one run on three hits over eight strong innings.

The veteran left-hander struck out eight on the night while issuing two free passes. The only mistake that he made was a solo homer by Nelson Cruz in the seventh inning. Now 11-4 on the season, he'll bring a 3.80 ERA and 1.14 WHIP into Tuesday's matchup against the Astros.
Sep 22 - 1:05 AM

Nelson Cruz crushed his 35th home run of the season on Thursday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Mariners past the Rangers.

His solo shot off of Cole Hamels got the M's on the board in the seventh inning and would account for their only offense in the ballgame. Cruz finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .286/.375/.539 with 35 bombs and 112 RBI on the year.
