Yu Darvish (elbow) is scheduled to throw 50-60 pitches and no more than 3 innings in a rehab start for Class-A South Bend today. If he's efficient over the three innings then he'll throw more in the bullpen afterwards, per Joe Maddon.

The Cubs scored exactly one run in each of their last 3 games, all via solo home runs. That hadn't happened to the franchise in the last 110 seasons, and it's first time since 2016 it happened in major league baseball. The Cubs offense has been stuck in neutral essentially since the all-star break, attempting to pull the ball way too often, according to Joe Maddon: "We have to stay in the middle of the field. That's the one time this year that I thought we were a pretty powerful offense."

And just like that, the A's have incredibly tied up the AL West after Trevor Cahill blanked the Astros for seven innings, allowing just one hit while mixing four pitches and getting six swinging strikeouts, four with his curve. The 74-49 record is Oakland's best through 123 games since 1992.

Cubs closer Brandon Morrow threw between 20-25 pitches off the bullpen mound as he rehabs a biceps injury. He's confident he can pitch threw any discomfort as he moves forward, though he's in no rush considering how well Pedro Strop and other relievers have performed: "I hope there's a set up job still available when I come back," he joked.

The Yankees' Miguel Andujar now has 36 doubles this season and is on pace to finish with 47. The American League record for rookies is 47 — set by Boston's Fred Lynn, who won the AL MVP award as a rookie in 1975. The overall big-league mark for rookies is 52, set by Johnny Frederick of the Brooklyn Robins in 1929.
