Christian Yelich hit a deep fly ball to center field in the first inning Thursday that nearly left the playing field. The reason it didn't? Jarrod Dyson, who robbed the possible home run from Yelich. It was the first robbed home run in Marlins Park history.

Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, on essentially swapping well-liked catcher A.J. Ellis for Carlos Ruiz. "I can go on and on about A.J. and his attributes, and what he brings to a team, and if Carlos didn't possess similar things, we wouldn't have made the move."

Another day, another gold medalist

Wrestler Helen Maroulis, who captured gold in Rio, was honored before Thursday's Orioles-Nationals game, one day after Katie Ledecky threw out the first pitch. However, Gio Gonzalez didn't have to hold Maroulis' medal for her.

Close friends A. J. Ellis and Clayton Kershaw shed a tear together after Ellis was traded Thursday from the Dodgers to the Phillies. Said Ellis: "To know that, in almost all likelihood, I will never get to catch (Kershaw) again is definitely the most devastating thing I'm feeling right now."

Former Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis, on his trade Thursday to the Phillies: It's a really, really sad day for me and a really sad day for my family. One of the things I was most proud of was being a Dodger for my entire career."

zep-CHIN-ski. That's how you pronounce the last name of reliever Marc Rzepczynski, whom the Nats acquired from the A's today in exchange for minor league infielder Max Schrock. The 30-year old southpaw joins a Washington pen whose 3.28 ERA leads the NL, but lacks lefty options with vet Oliver Perez struggling and rookie Sammy Solis sidelined (shoulder). In 56 games with Oakland, zep-CHIN-ski posted a 3.00 ERA, but his 14.2% walk rate was the highest among AL relievers (min. 30 IP).

Fascinating trade involving the Phillies and Dodgers. Carlos Ruiz goes to the Dodgers for C AJ Ellis, RHP Tommy Bergjans and a player to be named later. Wonder if Ruiz becomes Clayton Kershaw's personal catcher when Kershaw returns

If you've never seen Glenn Donnellan play his Electric Slugger - an amped violin that he custom-crafted out of a bat - you're missing out. If you've never seen Nats pitching coach Mike Maddux play the Electric Slugger...well, you're probably OK. Here's Maddux fiddling around after Donnellan's national anthem soundcheck at Nats Park.
