Cubs 7, Red Sox 4: As bad losses go, what happened Saturday at Fenway Park ranks high on the list. The Red Sox (12-11) blew an early three-run lead, giving up three runs in an ugly seventh inning in which starter Steven Wright gave up the game-tying homer, the defense threw the ball all over the field and the undermanned bullpen wilted. On plus side, Hanley Ramirez launched a tape-measure homer onto Lansdowne Street.

The Cubs played a solid game after getting down 3-0 to the Red Sox eventually coming back to win 7-4. Rizzo, Montero and Zobrist all homered but it was the bloop single by Kyle Schwarber off lefty Robby Scott which produced the go ahead RBI. Schwarber had struck out 6 times in 2 days but came through when the Cubs needed it. Once again the bullpen was great as Wade Davis is 6 for 6 in save opportunities after striking out the side in the ninth. The Cubs guaranteed themselves a winning month as they are 13-10 with one game to play.

The White Sox continue to surprise, improving to 13-9 with their sixth straight win after beating the Tigers in 10 innings. What's amazing is they're doing this even though several key guys have struggled: Jose Abreu and Melky Cabrera hit their first home runs on Saturday, Todd Frazier is under .200, Tim Anderson has struggled and Jose Quintana has been inconsistent. This will quiet the trade rumors for now.

Kyle Schwarber has struck out 6 times in 1.5 games at Fenway Park this weekend giving him 34 on the season, just behind the league leaders. His batting average has dipped to .205 on the year as the Cubs trail the Red Sox 4-2 in the 5th.

For the second straight day at Fenway Park a "Lets Go Cubbies" chant broke out after Kris Bryant extended a hitting streak to 10 games followed by Anthony Rizzo's 5th home run on this road trip. The Cubs have reduced their deficit to one, 3-2, in the 4th.

Two huge wins for the Mets to beat Max Scherzer on Friday and Stephen Strasburg today, right as their season seemed on the brink of falling apart. Michael Conforto continues to rake with two home runs, including one off reliever Enny Romero, his first hit off a lefty this season.

Michael Conforto is swinging for the fences today, and it sure is working. His eighth-inning home run gave the Mets a two-run lead against the Nationals on Saturday.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Mets used a pair of Michael Conforto homers and a parade of relievers to win their second straight over the Nats in DC, 5-3. Bryce Harper fanned three times for the second straight day, only the second time in his career that's happened, and Daniel Murphy went hitless for just the second time in 24 games against his former team.

Nats cleanup hitter Ryan Zimmerman is on pace to win the Triple Crown. His 8th inning blast to deep left center - which landed squarely in the Seven Line Army and cut the Mets lead to 4-3 - gives him 11 bombs on the season, tied for most in the bigs. He also leads the majors in batting (.402), and RBI's (26).
