Jose Fernandez does it all for Marlins

Fernandez went 2-for-2 and scored a run while also tossing seven shutout innings on Wednesday. It was the second time that Fernandez has had two hits and a run on offense while not allowing a run on the mound; he also did that against the Mets on June 1, 2013. The only other Marlins pitcher with more than one such game is Dontrelle Willis, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.

Ichiro excelled on a struggling squard

In 2004, Ichiro set the MLB record with 262 hits in a single season, led the majors with a .372 average and won his fourth straight Gold Glove. Meanwhile, the M's finished last in the AL West and had the third-worst record in the majors. Great players on bad teams

Christian Yelich on bench for Team USA?

Yelich makes the cut, but Giancarlo Stanton is nowhere to be found on David Schoenfield's ideal roster. That's because it's safe to assume that Yelich is the better bet to stay healthy over the next four years. 2020 U.S. Olympic dream team
