David Ortiz blasted a pair of home runs on Friday, including a go-ahead two-run shot in the 10th inning, powering the Red Sox to a 5-3 victory over the Orioles.

Ortiz got the Red Sox on the board with a solo blast in the fourth inning, which was immediately followed by another off the bat of Yoenis Cespedes. He then delivered a massive two-run shot off Darren O'Day in the 10th inning to put the Red Sox ahead for good, finishing the night 3-for-5 with three RBI. He now has 34 homers and 102 RBI on the season, making it a club record eighth time that he has reached the 30-homer/100-RBI plateaus, surpassing Ted Williams.

Zack Wheeler spun six scoreless innings Friday in a 5-0 win over the Braves.

Wheeler allowed five hits and two walks to go along with seven strikeouts. The Braves are sleepwalking their way through September, but it was still nice to see after the young right-hander was knocked around for six runs over four innings last time out. Wheeler now has a 3.49 ERA with 180 strikeouts and 76 walks over 180 1/3 innings this season. His final start will come next week against the Nationals on the road.
Sep 19 - 11:41 PM

Julio Teheran yielded two runs over seven innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

He struck out six and walked one. His lone mistake was a two-run homer by Lucas Duda in the sixth inning, but it was enough to put him on the losing side. Teheran is now 13-12 with a 2.88 ERA and 180/48 K/BB ratio over a career-high 216 innings. He'll finish his season with a start against the Pirates next week.
Sep 19 - 11:40 PM

Lucas Duda connected for a two-run homer in Friday's win over the Braves.

It was his only hit in four at-bats, but it was a big one, as it broke a scoreless tie in the sixth inning. Duda had gone 11 straight games without a home run. He's now up to 28 bombs and 85 RBI on the year.
Sep 19 - 11:39 PM

Daniel Murphy went 4-for-5 with a run scored against the Braves on Friday.

Murphy collected three singles and a double. The 29-year-old had just 4 hits in his last 22 at-bats coming into Friday's action, so fantasy owners will have to hope that this is a sign of things to come over the final week and a half of the season.
Sep 19 - 11:39 PM

Andrelton Simmons (ankle, Achilles) went 3-for-4 in his return to action Friday against the Mets.

He had a pair of singles and a double, giving him his first three-hit game since May 19. Simmons left Wednesday's game after tweaking his ankle/Achillies, but it's apparently not a major concern.
Sep 19 - 11:38 PM

Tommy La Stella went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Mets.

Phil Gosselin has seen more time at second base of late, so this was his first start since Saturday. LaStella got off to a nice start in the majors, but he's hitting just .174 since the start of August.
Sep 19 - 11:38 PM

Edward Mujica converted his seventh save of the season on Friday, working a scoreless 10th inning to preserve a two-run advantage over the Orioles.

He has done a tremendous job since taking over the reigns of the closer's role from Koji Uehara, making good on each of his four save chances. For those chasing saves, he makes for a strong option over the final week-plus of the regular season.
Sep 19 - 11:37 PM

Allen Webster pitched well in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, surrendering just one run on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings of work.

Webster walked one and struck out three on the night. The only damage against him came on a run-scoring infield single in the third inning. While he has shown inconsistency over his 10 starts with the Red Sox this season, he has now allowed three runs or less in each of his last three outings. He'll wrap up his 2014 season when he takes on the Rays next week.
Sep 19 - 11:34 PM

Nelson Cruz went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Orioles fell to the Red Sox in extra innings on Friday.

Cruz reached on an infield single in the third inning, bringing home the first run of the game. He has been an irreplaceable addition to the Orioles lineup this season, slashing .269/.335/.528 with a league-leading 39 home runs and 104 RBI. He has certainly positioned himself to earn a very lucrative deal on the free agent market this offseason.
Sep 19 - 11:28 PM

Alejandro De Aza had a terrific night at the dish in Friday's loss to the Red Sox, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a run scored.

He has been seemingly rejuvenated since arriving in a deadline deal from the White Sox, hitting safely in 12 of his first 13 games and .352 (19-for-54) overall with two homers and nine RBI.
Sep 19 - 11:25 PM

Kevin Gausman pitched decently in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday, giving up two runs on seven hits over his five innings of work.

The hard-throwing young right-hander fanned three and didn't walk a batter on the evening. He breezed through the first three innings without any difficulty, but was tagged for back-to-back homers from David Ortiz and Yoenis Cespedes in the fourth. He has done a nice job in 19 starts with the O's registering a 3.57 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 83/37 K/BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings. His final tune-up of the regular season will come against the Yankees in New York on Wednesday.
Sep 19 - 11:20 PM

Doug Fister gave up two runs in 6 2/3 innings Friday in a 3-2 win over the Marlins.

Fister only struck out one batter, but limited the Marlins to just five hits and a pair of walks. While the 30-year-old got a late start on the season, he's now 15-6 with a 2.55 ERA over 24 starts. He's been everything the Nationals were hoping for and more. He'll make his final regular season start next week against the Mets.
Sep 19 - 11:17 PM

Tom Koehler yielded three runs in five innings Friday in a loss to the Nationals.

Koehler gave up six hits (including a two-run homer to Adam LaRoche) and four walks to go along with five strikeouts. He remains winless since August 17. The 28-year-old will wrap up his season with a start against the Phillies next week.
Sep 19 - 11:14 PM

Drew Storen tossed a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Marlins for his eighth save of the season.

Storen needed just six pitches to set the side down in order. He's been great since taking over the closer role earlier this month, going 7-for-7 in save opportunities while allowing just two hits and no walks over 6 1/3 innings. He deserves to finish games going into the postseason.
