Vin Scully will call one inning of Sunday's game between the Dodgers and Cubs in both the Los Angeles and Chicago markets. The Chicago broadcast will carry Scully's call for the third inning. Said Cubs manager Joe Maddon: "I think it's an absolute treat for the people of Chicago. I'm sure most of them have heard him before, but if you haven't, it will be an absolute treat."

Infielder T.J. Rivera's stay in Las Vegas was a very, very short one. Rivera was recalled after outfielder Justin Ruggiano was placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury that he reaggravated on Friday. Rivera is hitting .314 in 11 games with the Mets. He was demoted on Friday when Neil Walker returned from paternity leave. Ruggiano was hitting .333 with two home runs and seven RBIs in eight games.

From Danny Knobler at Yankee Stadium: For the second straight day at Yankee Stadium and the 29th time this season, an Orioles starting pitcher failed to finish the fifth inning. Dylan Bundy allowed five runs in four innings Saturday, raising the Orioles' rotation ERA for the season to 5.01. No team since the 2001 Cleveland Indians (with rookie CC Sabathia and 28-year-old Bartolo Colon) has made the playoffs with a rotation ERA over 5.00.

Jackie Bradley Jr. has three hits in his last 34 at-bats and is 25-for-90 (.167) in August and 32-for-148 (.216) since the All-Star break. So, for the first time since May 13, he's batting in the No. 9 spot for the Red Sox tonight vs. the Royals. "There's been some pitches up in the strike zone where he's not getting to," manager John Farrell said. "There's been times he's expanded below the strike zone on some offspeed pitches. He's been kind of all-or-nothing."

Update from Danny Knobler as Gary Sanchez goes yard again: Now Gary Sanchez doesn't need to share his history with anyone else. The Yankees catcher homered again Saturday, and became the first major-league player ever with 11 home runs in the first 23 games of his career. Trevor Story (earlier this season) and George Scott (in 1966) each had 10. Sanchez's latest home run came in the fourth inning, on a 94 mph fastball from Orioles starter Dylan Bundy. It was the first of his 11 homers to come on a fastball harder than 91 mph, and it brought on the first curtain call of his Yankee career. The Yankee Stadium fans, who chanted his full name after his home run Friday night, called out just his first name Saturday, eventually bringing him to the top step of the dugout. Sanchez also threw out another runner trying to steal, his sixth in nine attempts.
