Corey Seager smashed a game-tying home run in the ninth inning on Sunday, which ultimately led to the Dodgers defeating the Rockies 4-3.

Seager tied the game at 2-2 with a run-scoring triple in the seventh inning. He then tagged Rockies closer Adam Ottavino for the game-tying blast with two outs in the ninth inning to force extras, where Daniel Descalso socked a walk-off homer in the 10th. Seagr finished the day 3-for-5 and is now hitting a robust .313/.371/.523 with 26 homers and 72 RBI on the season.

Brandon McCarthy pitched well in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits over his 5 1/3 innings.

The veteran right-hander punched out six on the afternoon and walked just one. It was a nice return to the rotation for McCarthy, who was thrust into emergency duty when the club pushed Rich Hill's next start back. He could stick in the rotation to make another start next week, and would be worth a look as a streaming option in that case.

David Dahl clobbered a solo homer on Sunday as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Dahl's solo blast off of Dodgers' closer Kenley Jansen gave the Rockies a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning, but it would prove to be short-lived. The homer was Dahl's lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. He has acclimated himself well to big league pitching thus far, slashing .315/.357/.500 with seven homers and 23 RBI.
Sep 25 - 8:17 PM

Tyler Anderson logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, surrendering two runs on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings.

The left-hander walked two and struck out only one batter on the afternoon. The Dodgers scratched out a run against him in the third inning and then tied the score with Corey Seager's RBI triple in the seventh. Anderson has done a really nice job in the Rockies rotation this season, compiling a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and a 99/28 K/BB ratio over 114 1/3 innings. He'll wrap up his season on Saturday against the Brewers.
Sep 25 - 8:12 PM

Ryon Healy clobbered another home run on Sunday as the Athletics routed the Rangers 7-1 in Oakland.

All of the damage came during a seven-run uprising in the second inning, which Healy capped off with a two-run homer to chase Colby Lewis from the game. He has really opened some eyes during his time with the big league club, slashing .303/.336/.519 with 12 homers and 33 RBI in 241 at-bats. He has likely played his way into a role as the club's starting third baseman heading into 2017.

Jharel Cotton earned his second victory of the season on Sunday, firing seven impressive innings of one-run baseball against the Rangers.

Cotton punched out five on the afternoon and didn't issue a free pass. The only blemish on his day was a solo homer off the bat of Adrian Beltre in the seventh inning. The rookie right-hander has been tremendous in his limited time with the A's, compiling a 1.44 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 16/3 K/BB ratio over 25 innings. He's worth a look in all formats for his final start of the season on Saturday against the Mariners in Seattle.

Adrian Beltre clubbed his 32nd home run of the season as the Rangers fell to the Athletics on Sunday afternoon in Oakland.

Beltre's solo shot in the seventh inning was the extent of his club's offense in the ballgame. He also singled in the ballgame, finishing the day 2-for-3. The 37-year-old is in the midst of another outstanding season, slashing .300/.359/.523 with 32 home runs and 101 RBI.
Sep 25 - 6:40 PM

Colby Lewis was annihilated in Sunday's loss to the Athletics, surrendering seven runs on seven hits in just 1 1/3 innings.

The right-hander also walked one in the abbreviated outing. All of the damage came after working a scoreless first inning, with the final dagger coming on a two-run blast off the bat of Ryon Healy. The Rangers had hoped to get Lewis right down the stretch in preparation to use him in the playoff rotation, but he has been a disaster since his return from the disabled list. He'll take his final turn of the regular season on Saturday against the Rays.
Sep 25 - 6:39 PM

Bryce Harper is listed as day-to-day due to soreness in his left thumb.

The Nationals don't believe that his injury is serious, but he'll head for precautionary X-rays on Monday to make sure. Harper sustained his injury during Sunday's game when he slid awkwardly into third base after Jung Ho Kang faked a tag.
Sep 25 - 6:05 PM

Mark Melancon earned his 43rd save of the season Sunday in the Nationals' 10-7 defeat of the Pirates.

A nice bounceback outing from the veteran closer, who blew a save against his former team on Friday night. He worked a 1-2-3 inning Sunday on just 12 pitches, striking out one. Melancon has a 1.76 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 61/12 K/BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings this season, and now 13 saves as a member of the Nationals.
Sep 25 - 5:52 PM

Tyler Glasnow gave up four runs -- three earned -- over three innings Sunday in the Pirates' loss to the Nationals.

It was the third major league start for Glasnow, who had been operating out of the Bucs' bullpen since his early-September return from a shoulder injury. He gave up seven hits and walked one. It's not clear if there is another start in store for the youngster.
Sep 25 - 5:49 PM

Raisel Iglesias struck out all three batters he faced Sunday to earn his fourth save.

Iglesias needed just 15 total pitches to carve up Chris Carter, Hernan Perez, and Orlando Arcia. The right-hander has now earned the Reds' last two saves with Tony Cingrani hitting a rough patch. Iglesias carries sneaky fantasy value into the final week.
Sep 25 - 5:30 PM

Brandon Finnegan tossed five scoreless innings Sunday in the Reds' win over the Brewers.

Finnegan closed out his 2016 with a bang, striking out four without issuing a walk and holding the Brewers to just three hits. Cincinnati will now shut him down. The 23-year-old left-hander finishes with a cool 3.98 ERA and 145 strikeouts in 172 innings.
Sep 25 - 5:27 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez struck out a career-high 13 over 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball, netting a no-decision in Sunday's 3-2 extra-innings win over the Rays.

It was a record-setting day for the Red Sox, as Rodriguez combined with the bullpen to strike out 21 Rays batters over the first nine innings. The left-hander lost out on a win when Tampa knotted things up in the eighth inning, but much more important is that E-Rod is hitting his stride as the playoffs near with a 2.03 ERA over his last eight starts. Boston is playing its best baseball of the year, as well, with 11 straight victories. Rodriguez will close out his regular season at home against the Blue Jays.
Sep 25 - 5:22 PM

Edwin Diaz tallied his 17th save Sunday in the Mariners' defeat of the Twins.

Diaz struck out one in a scoreless 1-2-3 ninth to preserve the Mariners' one-run lead. It was a reassuring outing from the hard-throwing 22-year-old right-hander, who blew a save Wednesday when he surrendered a game-tying solo home run to Jose Bautista.
