Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 and drove in a run during Saturday's victory over the Indians.

He smacked an RBI single in the first inning and was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. He added a couple more singles later in the game and is now batting .299/.353/.480 with 25 homers and 97 RBI. His power output is down a bit this season despite home runs being way up around the league. Abreu is among a small group of players who can provide high batting averages without sacrificing home run power.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with a home run and scored twice in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

The solo longball in the sixth inning was his 39th round-tripper of the season. Frazier's .225 batting average is painful but he is good everywhere else. He has 96 RBI and 84 runs scored and has even stolen 12 bases.

Rajai Davis went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

He singled to right in the second inning to drive in Jose Ramirez and was thrown out trying to make it a double. He doesn't do a whole lot with the bat (.255 batting average, 12 homers, 47 RBI and 71 runs) but he makes up for it with his legs. He has now stolen 41 bases in 47 tries. Only three players have swiped more bags than Davis (Billy Hamilton, Jonathan Villar and Starling Marte).

Wade Miley struck out 11 and fell an out shy of a complete game Saturday, allowing a lone run in the Orioles' 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Miley gave up seven hits without allowing a walk, and the 11 strikeouts were a season high. An RBI double by Brandon Drury with two outs in the ninth ended Miley's night just shy of the complete game, but it was still an impressive turn for the 29-year-old. Miley is 9-13 with a 5.40 ERA in 29 starts overall, and he'll make his final start of the year Friday against the Yankees.
Sep 24 - 11:26 PM

Jhoulys Chacin gave up two runs -- both unearned -- in six innings and did not factor into the decision in the Angels 10-4 victory over the Astros on Saturday.

He allowed four base hits, issued three free passes and punched out five in the game. Both runs the Astros scored against him came in the third inning without benefit of a hit. A George Springer line out was followed by a throwing error, two walks, a sacrifice fly and a run-scoring wild pitch by Chacin. His record holds at 5-8 but his ERA improves to 5.06 in 137 innings.
Sep 24 - 11:21 PM

Brad Peacock held the Angels to one run in five innings, allowing only one hit and two walks while striking out seven batters on Saturday but had to settle for a no-decision.

His bullpen got hammered to blow the game in the late innings. The only hit he allowed was an RBI double to Albert Pujols with Mike Trout aboard. He pitched very well but was removed after only 69 pitches. This was just his fifth start and the Astros didn't want to push him too hard. He owns a great 2.67 ERA after 27 innings. He has yet to earn a win or a loss this year.
Sep 24 - 11:17 PM

Trey Mancini hit his third home run in four games in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Mancini took D'backs starter Robbie Ray deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning. The 24-year-old has four hits in 11 at-bats since being brought up by the Orioles, but three of those have left the yard. He could be setting himself up to enter next spring as the favorite for the Orioles' designated hitter job with his hot finish.
Sep 24 - 11:16 PM

Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The D'backs intentionally walked Adam Jones to get to Davis with the bases loaded in the fourth inning, and he made them pay by coming through with a two-run single. The multi-hit game was his first since September 6. Davis is hitting just .220/.331/.469 but has 38 homers, 84 RBI and 95 runs scored overall.
Sep 24 - 11:12 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with two RBI and scored three times in a win over the Astros on Saturday.

He also walked twice. He only made one out and was on the bases the whole game. The Angels trailed all night until breaking out for four runs in the eighth and five runs in the ninth. Trout had run-scoring hits in both of those frames. The superstar is batting .318/.440/.557 with 28 bombs, 97 RBI and leads the majors with 120 runs scored. Tack on 27 stolen bases to complete the package.
Sep 24 - 11:08 PM

Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Astros.

He had an RBI single in the eighth inning and a ground rule double in the ninth to drive in another run. He has a .264 batting average with 17 home runs, 70 RBI and 88 runs scored after 150 games. He is a solid fourth fantasy outfielder.
Sep 24 - 11:01 PM

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-3 with his 45th home run of the year in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The homer was Trumbo's second in as many days. Every new dinger adds to Trumbo's already impressive year, as he's got a career-high 45 homers with 104 RBI and 89 runs scored. The free agent-to-be is going to get paid in a big way this winter.
Sep 24 - 11:00 PM

George Springer went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Angels.

He stroked an RBI triple in the seventh inning and was then driven in by Yulieski Gurriel. Springer has a solid .255/.357/.453 slash line with 28 home runs and 79 RBI. His 112 runs scored rank 5th in the majors. He has contributed nine stolen bases as well. He leads the majors with 715 plate appearances.
Sep 24 - 10:55 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a grand slam to help the Red Sox defeat the Rays 6-4 on Saturday.

The Sox were trailing in the seventh inning when Pedroia stepped to the plate with two outs and the sacks jacked. He unloaded them with his 14th home run of the season, helping them clinch a playoff berth in the process. The homer also gave him his 100th run scored this year, and the 33-year-old is batting .318/.377/.447 with 71 RBI and seven steals through 148 games.
Sep 24 - 10:45 PM

Logan Forsythe hit his 20th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

He got there in legitimate fashion, taking all-everything closer Craig Kimbrel deep for a solo shot in the ninth inning. It's the first time in Forsythe's career that he's hit 20 homers in a season. The 29-year-old is batting .274/.344/.464 with 52 RBI, 75 runs scored and six steals to date.
Sep 24 - 10:40 PM

Brad Miller hit a two-run double and scored a run against the Red Sox on Saturday.

Miller finished the game 1-for-3 with the run-scoring double in the third inning. The 26-year-old has had a ridiculously productive season in 2016, swatting 30 homers with 80 RBI and 71 runs scored in 145 games. Miller is batting .250/.309/.498 overall.
