Carl Yastrzemski won the Triple Crown in 1967. "Yaz had the most impactful season on a franchise in the history of the game," said Ken "Hawk" Harrelson, at Fenway for 50th anniversary of Red Sox's "Impossible Dream" season. "It was a renaissance of baseball in New England because of No. 8 and No. 16 (Jim Lonborg)."

Reggie Smith is also among the 1967 Red Sox alumni back at Fenway for the 50th anniversary of the "Impossible Dream" pennant winners. Also in attendance: Rico Petrocelli, Jim Lonborg, Ken "Hawk" Harrelson and, of course, Carl Yastrzemski.

Manny Pina has hit some big home runs for the Brewers this season and he hits another, a two-run shot to give the Brewers a 7-6 lead in the eighth. That's five home runs on the day for the Brewers as they go for their fourth win in a row after dropping six straight. Can they hang in the NL Central race? After this game they head out on a nine-game road trip to Colorado, San Fran and L.A.

David Price didn't feel as "free," in John Farrell's words, when he threw Tuesday. Received treatment today, slated for more flat-ground throwing Thursday.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson was not happy with Robert Gsellman, who had told a reporter "I don't really care" when told of Alderson's comment of "he needs to pitch better" on Tuesday. But Alderson did say "I'm going to give him a pass" since Gsellman was pitching Wednesday, his first start since June 27. Gsellman has a 6.16 ERA in 76 IP in 2017. "I hope he reflects on the implications of that statement and the potential consequences of that statement and gives a better response the next time out," Alderson said.

Joe Maddon has moved Kyle Schwarber up to second in the lineup while Ben Zobrist will lead off on Wednesday against the Reds. Schwarber broke a string of 8 consecutive strikeouts recently but has reached base since then several times including as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning last night when he singled. Ian Happ is in center with Alex Avila behind the plate.

It is odd that everyone seems to be hitting more home runs but Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun, who homered today, is headed the other direction. Calhoun hit 26 blasts two seasons ago but isn't likely to approach that figure in 2017. One must assume there has been some underlying injury so don't ignore him as a potential top-50 outfielder next season. He could certainly bounce back.

It's not every day you reach base three times and the fans leave a little disappointed, but it appears Giancarlo Stanton's streak will end at six games in a row with a home run as he's 2-for-4 with a hit by pitch, singling twice on a blooper and groundball hit and also grounding out twice.

Nothing symbolizes what has gone wrong with the Giants in 2017 more than this: Pablo Sandoval is hitting cleanup today. He was so bad in Boston that the Red Sox finally decided to eat more than $50 million in remaining salary to get rid of him. And in Sandoval's first nine games with the Giants: He was worse than he was with the Red Sox.

With the way the starting rotation is pitching, the Indians probably wish the playoffs would start tomorrow. Danny Salazar threw another gem with 10 K's and one run in seven innings, his fifth straight strong outing since returning from the DL. His changeup and slider continue to be huge weapons and he was still throwing 96 in his final inning. This is the best he's ever looked.

The Dodgers improved to 84-34 with their win against the White Sox Tuesday. According to Elias, they are the eighth team in the Live Ball era to reach 50 games above .500 before picking up their 35th loss. They are the first to do so since the 2001 Mariners started 80-30.

If the Dodgers want to make a realistic push at chasing the single-season record of 116 wins, this is a week they need to clean up, with five games against the White Sox and Tigers. Good start. They broke open a 1-1 game with five runs in the eighth -- all with two outs. Alex Wood didn't improve to 15-1 as he got a no-decision, but he threw just 79 pitches in an efficient seven-inning outing.
