Justin Turner played the role of hero on Wednesday, delivering a walk-off RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning against the Twins.

You just can't ever count this team out. The Dodgers trailed 5-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning of this one and rallied all the way back. The stage was set for Turner's dramatics after Austin Barnes and Chris Taylor each singled with one out in the ninth. After Corey Seager grounded out to advance the runners, Turner came to the dish and lined a two-strike offering into left field for the game-winner. Turner is hitting an absurd .362/.456/.556 with 11 homers and 41 RBI on the season.

Yasiel Puig launched his 19th home run of the season as the Dodgers rallied to beat the Twins on Wednesday.

Puig's solo shot off of Ervin Santana pulled the Dodgers to within three runs at 5-2 in the fifth inning. He finished the evening 1-for-4 and is now slashing .256/.329/.472 with 19 long balls and 50 RBI on the season.

Kenley Jansen earned his fifth victory of the season on Wednesday, working a scoreless ninth inning against the Twins.

Jansen made things interesting, allowing a leadoff double to Max Kepler who advanced to third on a ground ball. He battled back nicely though, whiffing Jason Castro and Jorge Polanco to escape. He has compiled a ridiculous 1.42 ERA, 0.65 WHIP and 65/3 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings on the season.

Brock Stewart had mixed results in his spot start against the Twins on Wednesday, surrendering five runs (zero earned) on five hits in his 3 2/3 innings.

The right-hander struck out two while walking one in the ballgame. His defense didn't do him any favors, as a pair of errors led to all five runs against him being unearned. It's unclear if he'll stick around in the rotation to make another start against the Braves next week.

Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Twins fell to the Dodgers on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

Dozier's two-run double gave the Twins a 5-0 lead in the fourth inning. That would be the extent of their offense in the ballgame though. The hard-hitting second baseman is now hitting .249/.334/.441 with 16 homers, 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
Jul 27 - 1:45 AM

Ervin Santana pitched decently in Wednesday's no-decision against the Dodgers, allowing four runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

The All-Star right-hander racked up seven strikeouts on the night and didn't walk a batter. He allowed a pair of solo homers to Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig in the fourth and fifth innings respectively, then allowed the Dodgers to rally for two more before departing in the seventh. Santana now owns a 3.37 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 104/47 K/BB ratio on the season. He'll do battle against the Padres his next time out in San Diego on Wednesday.
Jul 27 - 1:40 AM

Manuel Margot went 2-for-4 with a homer, triple and two RBI on Wednesday, leading the Padres to a 6-3 victory over the Mets.

Margot got the scoring started early, crushing a two-run homer off of Steven Matz in the first inning. He then tripled and scored on a double by Wil Myers his next time up in the third. With the two-hit attack, the rookie outfielder is hitting .272/.315/.401 with six homers, 19 RBI and 10 swipes in his first 293 plate appearances.
Jul 27 - 1:29 AM

Luis Torrens delivered a three-run triple on Wednesday as the Padres topped the Mets in San Diego.

The 21-year-old's three-run triple increased the Padres' edge to 6-1 in the fourth inning. It was the first three-base hit of his young career. The Rule 5 pick finished the night 1-for-4 and is hitting just .189/.260/.242 with six RBI in his limited action this season.
Jul 27 - 1:26 AM

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5, drove in a run and scored twice against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Moustakas singled to drive in the first of nine runs the Royals would score in the seventh inning. He was also hit by a pitch in the ninth inning that prompted the ejection of reliever Bruce Rondon. Moustakas is having by far the best season of his career. He is slashing .275/.303/.563 with 29 bombs and 65 RBI. The only thing he doesn't do is steal bases. He has already blown past his career high of 22 home runs in a season and is sneaking up on his career high of 82 RBI.
Jul 27 - 1:24 AM

Brad Hand secured his fourth save of the season on Wednesday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a three-run lead against the Mets.

Hand retired all three hitters he faced in order, one via the strikeout. He has assumed the mantle of the closer's role following the trade of Brandon Maurer to the Royals this week, though Hand could be relocating himself in the coming days. The left-hander sports an outstanding 2.08 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 67/14 K/BB ratio through 52 innings this season.
Jul 27 - 1:22 AM

Jhoulys Chacin earned his 10th victory of the season on Wednesday, holding the Mets to two runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Chacin punched out five on the night while walking three. It was a terrific effort for Chacin just a day after he was scratched from his scheduled start due to back tightness. He has been outstanding at home this season and a nightmare when pitching away from PetCo Park. Luckily for fantasy owners he'll be home again next time out when he does battle against the Twins on Tuesday.
Jul 27 - 1:19 AM

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-6 at the plate and scored three runs in a blowout win over the Tigers on Wednesday.

One of the hits was a double. He is now batting .268/.338/.413 with 11 home runs, 57 runs scored and 30 RBI. He has stolen 16 bases without being caught.
Jul 27 - 1:17 AM

Wilmer Flores crushed his 11th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Padres on Wednesday.

His solo shot pulled the Mets to within three runs at 6-3 in the eighth inning, but that would be the extent of their offense in the ballgame. Flores finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .283/.316/.489 with 11 long balls and 30 RBI on the year.
Jul 27 - 1:16 AM

Steven Matz had another rough outing in Wednesday's loss to the Padres, allowing six runs on nine hits over his three innings of work.

Matz struck out four and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. The Padres jumped on him from the get-go, as Manuel Margot crushed a two-run homer before an out had been recorded in the first inning. Matz will carry a disappointing 5.51 ERA and 1.50 WHIP into a brutal matchup against the Rockies in Colorado on Tuesday.
Jul 27 - 1:14 AM

Whit Merrifield went 3-for-7 with two runs scored and an RBI versus the Tigers on Wednesday.

He joined in the fun as the Royals laced 22 hits and scored 16 runs. All three of his hits were singles. He has a .294 batting average with 11 home runs and 43 RBI in 352 plate appearances. He has stolen 16 bases and been caught only twice, including once today.
