Justin Upton's line drive bounced off the glove of an outstretched Marwin Gonzalez and was ruled, controversially, a base hit, breaking up Dallas Keuchel's no-hitter with two outs in the seventh inning. Tough play, but you have to think Carlos Correa makes it if he isn't on the DL.

Dallas Keuchel, 10-2 in his career against the Angels, has thrown five no-hit innings tonight. Just one walk and three strikeouts, with the Astros leading 3-0.

Stephen Strasburg wouldn't elaborate on the dugout dust-up that went down between him and Nats teammate Max Scherzer tonight: "It's part of family. You got to be in the family."

Aaron Boone says the issues with Domingo Germán are "mechanical." So much so that the Yankees just optioned Germán back to Triple-A tonight. Luis Cessa, who pitched a gem tonight in Scranton, will be called up and make that next start when it arrives in the rotation.

The Giants have also been among the teams which have expressed interest in Familia; Braves not involved.

Not exactly the Stephen Strasburg that the Nationals were hoping for. Making his first start after missing six weeks with shoulder inflammation, Strasburg failed to last five frames. The Nats righty, who turns 30 today, allowed six runs on eight hits in 4.2 innings. He fanned six and walked two. It was Strasburg's second-shortest outing of the season.

Angels general manager Billy Eppler repeated today that none of the doctors he has spoken to at Kerlan-Jobe has recommended Tommy John surgery for Shohei Ohtani. "I can tell you the consensus of those people is to never push a player into surgery."

First career at-bat as a Dodger = First career hit as a Dodger for Manny Machado

Brian Snitker might be on to something. The Braves' skipper put Ronald Acuna in the leadoff spot tonight, the rookie's first start atop Atlanta's lineup. The 20-year old Acuna has responded, reaching base in his first two trips (1B, BB) with a pair of steals and a run scored.

Josh Hader's teammates literally stood by him during his press conference, where he addressed inflammatory tweets he had posted as a teenager: "I'm grateful for having my teammates behind me and supporting me. I hope they know the character that I really am and the person I truly am today ... I just wanted them to know I'm sorry for what I did back in the day; mistakes I made. They are a family to me."

Watch Matt Carpenter discuss his 5 for 5 day which included three home runs and two doubles, all by the 6th inning. He came out of the game after his last HR.

Bryce Harper and the Nationals took BP today wearing tee shirts that had the name of the team (not the player) printed on the back. "It's about us," said manager Davey Martinez. "If we're going to do this, we've got to do it together." The disappointing Nats, who enter the second half with a .500 record, are 5.5 games behind the first-place Phillies.
