Ronald Acuña Jr. slams his 40th home run to give the Braves a 2-0 lead to reach the first part of his 40-40 goal. He's the third player to hit 40 home runs in his age-21 season or younger, joining Eddie Mathews and Mel Ott, and he's three stolen bases away from a historic 40-40 season.

It has been 11 days since Justin Turner was in the Dodgers' lineup. The NLDS begins in a litte more than two weeks. Dave Roberts said Turner, nursing an ankle sprain that has been deemed mild, moved around a little better today, but is still unavailable. Roberts said "there's plenty of time for him to get some at-bats to get him ready for the postseason." "When he does come back, I just really wanna be confident that we can sustain it," Roberts added. "When that is, we'll see."

Washington acting manager Chip Hale rode Max Scherzer as long as he could. First, he let Scherzer hit for himself in the top of the seventh representing the tying run. Then he stuck with him in the bottom of the inning, even after St. Louis tacked on an insurance run. Finally, pinch-hitter Matt Wieters chased the Nats' ace, hooking a ball into the seats near the right-field foul pole for a two-run homer. St. Louis has taken a 5-1 lead through seven.

Pennant pushes need unheralded heroes and the Cardinals' Tommy Edman continues to be just that. Starting today in right field, he threw out Victor Robles at the plate in the second, quelling a Washington scoring threat that began with a listless error by 3B Matt Carpenter. Then, after Max Scherzer had rolled through the first seven Redbird hitters, Edman hit one out to right field for his 10th homer. St. Louis leads 1-zip after three.

The Nationals-Cardinals series finale is the only thing going right now in MLB and if the first inning is any indication, the Redbirds have their hands full with St. Louis native Max Scherzer. He breezed through his first frame on 14 pitches, striking out two of the three Cardinal hitters. He pretty much erased Paul Goldschmidt on three pitches, two sliders then a 97 MPH heater on the inside part of the plate.
