Jose Ramirez slugged his 29th home run of the season Sunday in the Indians' defeat of the Mariners.

Ramirez singled and scored in the top of the fourth and launched a solo shot off Mariners starter Mike Leake in the top of the sixth, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 with one RBI and two runs scored. The 25-year-old superstar is batting .317/.370/.583 with 81 RBI and 101 runs scored in 146 games this season for the American League Central champions.

Yasmani Grandal homered and drove in all three of his club's runs on Sunday as the Dodgers beat the Giants 3-1.

Grandal got the Dodgers on the board with a sacrifice fly in the second inning, then tagged Chris Stratton for a two-run bomb in the fourth inning. He finished the afternoon 1-for-1 plus a walk and is now slashing .243/.305/.454 with 21 homers and 55 on the season.
Sep 24 - 7:18 PM

Cody Allen nailed down his 29th save of the year on Sunday afternoon against the Mariners.

Allen retired all three batters he faced, two via strikeout, to seal a 4-2 victory for Cleveland. The 28-year-old closer boasts a 2.81 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 86/21 K/BB ratio in 64 innings this season.
Sep 24 - 7:18 PM

Brandon Morrow worked a scoreless ninth inning against the Giants on Sunday, protecting a two-run lead to earn his second save of the season.

Morrow retired all three hitters that he faced, two of them via strikeout. He has done a tremendous job out of the Dodgers' bullpen this season, compiling a 2.11 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 50/8 K/BB ratio in his 42 2/3 innings.
Sep 24 - 7:16 PM

Mike Leake surrendered three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Indians.

Leake had been on a nice roll with Seattle since coming over from the Cardinals in an August waiver trade, but he couldn't quite contain the AL Central champs on Sunday afternoon at Safeco Field. The right-hander yielded seven hits, including a Jose Ramirez solo homer in the top of the sixth inning. Leake will finish the 2017 campaign with a road start versus the Angels.
Sep 24 - 7:15 PM

Clayton Kershaw picked up his 18th victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Giants to one run on eight hits over his eight innings.

The star southpaw racked up six strikeouts on the afternoon and didn't walk a batter. The only blemish on his afternoon was a solo homer off the bat of Mac Williamson in the eighth inning. He'll head into his final regular season start against the Rockies on Friday with a sparkling 2.21 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 200/30 K/BB ratio across 171 innings.
Sep 24 - 7:13 PM

Corey Kluber earned his 18th win of the season Sunday in the Indians' 4-2 defeat of the Mariners.

Ben Gamel hit a two-run homer off Kluber in the bottom of the fifth, but it came after an inning-opening fielding error by shortstop Francisco Lindor so both runs were unearned. Kluber yielded only five other hits -- four of them singles -- and he struck out 10. The 31-year-old ace boasts a 2.27 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 262/36 K/BB ratio in 198 2/3 innings this season for the American League Central champions. His final regular-season start will come at home against the White Sox.
Sep 24 - 7:13 PM

Mac Williamson clubbed his third home run of the season, accounting for the Giants' lone run in a loss to the Dodgers.

Williamson's solo shot spoiled Clayton Kershaw's shutout bid in the eighth inning. He also singled twice in the ballgame, finishing the afternoon 3-for-3. On the season, he's slashing .242/.288/.419 with three homers and six RBI in 62 at-bats.
Sep 24 - 7:10 PM

Chris Stratton struggled in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, allowing three runs on five hits in his four innings of work.

Stratton walked two and struck out two on the afternoon. Yasmani Grandal was responsible for all of the damage against him, with sacrifice fly in the second inning and a two-run bomb in the fourth. He'll carry a 4.15 ERA and 1.50 WHIP into his final start of the season on Saturday against the Padres.
Sep 24 - 7:08 PM

Khris Davis launched his 41st home run of the season Sunday in the Athletics' 8-1 victory over the Rangers.

Davis contributed a two-run jack to the A's five-run fifth inning. He also drew a walk in the game, finishing 1-for-3 with one run scored and two RBI. The 29-year-old left fielder has registered 83 home runs and 207 RBI in two seasons with Oakland and is looking at a big payout this winter as a second-year arbitration-eligible player.
Sep 24 - 7:07 PM

Jharel Cotton worked five scoreless innings Sunday in a win over the Rangers.

Cotton was scratched from his last start due to a right groin strain, but he returned with a vengeance on Sunday afternoon, yielding just one hit and one walk while striking out six of the 17 batters he faced. The 25-year-old right-hander has mostly been a disappointment this season, but he might make for a decent fantasy streamer in his final regular-season start -- a rematch with this same Rangers team.
Sep 24 - 7:04 PM

Matt Chapman hit a pair of RBI doubles in the Athletics' defeat of the Rangers on Sunday.

Chapman had been in a minor slump, but he got back into the extra-base-hit business in Sunday's series finale versus Texas. The 24-year-old first baseman is slashing .230/.309/.472 with 13 home runs, 21 doubles, 36 RBI, and 26 runs scored through his first 77 major league games.
Sep 24 - 7:01 PM

Nomar Mazara hit his 20th home of the season on Sunday afternoon against the Athletics.

It was a solo shot in the top of the seventh inning off A's reliever Simon Casto and it gave the Rangers their only run of the game. Mazara finished the day 1-for-3 with one RBI and one run scored. The 22-year-old outfielder has slashed .255/.327/.433 through 141 games played this season.
Sep 24 - 6:58 PM

Martin Perez surrendered five earned runs over 4 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Athletics.

Perez walked four and gave up six hits, including a two-run homer to Khris Davis in the bottom of the fifth inning. That was part of a five-run frame for Oakland. Perez will bring a 12-12 record and 4.83 ERA into his final regular-season start.
Sep 24 - 6:56 PM

Kevin Kiermaier went 1-for-5 with a homer in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

The homer was of the leadoff variety, and gives him 15 on the season. His improvement with the bat deserves plaudits, as he's gone from glove-first outfielder to a legitimate weapon at the top of the lineup. The only thing he hasn't done is knock in many runs, but that's tough to blame on a leadoff hitter in a mediocre lineup. He's hitting .276/.338/.455 on the season with the 15 homers and 39 RBI.
