Strong stretch drive could lead to big payday for Lance Lynn

Despite coming off a 2016 season missed due to Tommy John surgery, Lance Lynn has shown no signs of wearing down. If he finishes strong he could move into the Johnny Cueto/Jordan Zimmermann 2015-16 free agency tier.

Betts' 2-run double caps Red Sox 5-4 comeback win

Mookie Betts lined a two-run double off the left-field wall with two outs in the ninth inning, capping a three-run rally that lifted the Boston Red Sox to a 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night.

The Cardinals implode in the bottom of the ninth as the Red Sox rally from an early 4-0 deficit to win on Mookie Betts' walk-off hit. The Cardinals have lost 10 games they led by 3+ runs, most in the NL, and they've lost 22 games they led by 2+, most in the majors.

Red Sox 5, Cardinals 4: Mookie Betts needed that. It has been a struggle since the All-Star break for last year's AL MVP runner-up. But down to his last strike with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning, Betts doubled off the Green Monster to drive in two runs and give the Red Sox a walkoff victory and a sweep of the two-game interleague series. Xander Bogaerts' leadoff homer started the three-run ninth inning that saw St. Louis manager Mike Matheny get ejected and catcher Yadier Molina spar with the umpires.

Who will win NL Central?

The division title is a tightly contested battle as teams head into the home stretch, but with the easiest remaining schedule in the league, it looks like the Cubs will have the edge.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Red Sox 10, Cardinals 4: Talk about a good old-fashioned rally. Thirteen Red Sox batters came to the plate and 10 in a row reached base during an eight-run fifth inning that featured no home runs, only the offensive efficiency of an assembly line. In winning for the 11th time in 13 games Tuesday night, the Red Sox churned out 15 hits. Xander Bogaerts finished with three hits, while Eduardo Nunez, Hanley Ramirez, Rafael Devers and Mitch Moreland had two apiece.
