Keep a lookout tomorrow for updates on Andrew Benintendi, who sprained his knee as a result of a bad baserunning play. On second base on a grounder to shortstop, he attempted to return to second even though he had already passed the fielder. He was tagged out as he tried to evade the tag.

How big of a rut has Jacob deGrom fallen into? His outing Wednesday marked the first time in franchise history that a Mets pitcher allowed a dozen hits in consecutive appearances, and the first time in deGrom's career he has allowed double-digit hits in consecutive starts. DeGrom was charged with five runs on 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings against the Cardinals.

Sellout crowd of 39,100 in DC to watch Nats/Orioles. That's about 50% more than there were at Camden Yards on Tuesday. The eye test (way more orange tonight than red yesterday) says that O's fans take this geographic rivalry way more seriously than Nats fans.

Trea Turner just tallied his 8th straight hit, tying a Nationals record. Not bad for a rookie.

Tuesday: Chase Utley has a sore foot. Wednesday: Chase Utley is batting leadoff and is at second base. Life with the Dodgers these days.

With the Marlins acquiring Jeff Francoeur, it's worth noting this about the Mets: Team officials are not expecting to make any acquisitions the remainder of this month. They did put in a claim on a reliever earlier this month, but did not win the claim. You may recall the Mets acquired Addison Reed in August 2015.
