The Dodgers captured their 98th win with a 7-5 victory over the Rays. Kenley Jansen, who has thrown a livelier cutter in recent days, recorded a 4-out save. Corey Seager drove in four runs and Cody Belinger added a run-scoring double.

Blake Snell threw two scoreless innings in his long-awaited return from elbow surgery, then threw some extra innings in the Dodger Stadium bullpen. He retired all 6 batters he faced, 4 via strikeout.

The Brewers hold on to beat the Padres and have won 11 of their past 12 games. Drew Pomeranz retires all six batters he faces in relief to get the save (he's fanned 11 of the last 14 batters he's faced) and give Josh Hader the night off. Including the September 10 game when Christian Yelich was injured in the first inning, the Brewers are 7-1 since Yelich went down. You can't predict baseball!

What happens when you throw a 95-mph fastball down the middle to Yordan Alvarez: A 454-feet home run to center field. Lance Lynn had been locked up in a great duel with Justin Verlander, but back-to-back home runs from Alex Bregman and Alvarez give the Astros a 3-0. It looks like Bregman and Verlander are helping their Cy Young and MVP arguments.

The Nationals are clinging to a 3-2 lead as we reach the stretch. Patrick Corbin is done for the night after holding St Louis to just two unearned runs while striking out 11. Fernando Rodney will come on for Washington in the seventh. He was rocked his last time out, allowing three hits, two walks and two runs in Atlanta.

The Milwaukee miracle may continue to roll on: Mike Moustakas gives the Brewers a 2-1 lead over the Padres in the seventh inning with a home run off a 1-2 pitch from Matt Strahm, his 11th home run off a lefty this season. The Brewers are going for their 11th win in 12 games. Remember: They're facing losing teams the rest of the season as they're already down with the Cardinals and Cubs.

Yu Darvish struck out 8 Reds in a row, setting a franchise record but missed on tying or passing Tom Seaver for most consecutive strikeouts (10) in a single game. He's the first pitcher to record 11 K's in the first four innings of game since Carlos Rodon of the White Sox accomplished it in 2017. Through four innings tonight, Darvish had struck out 25 batters over his last 10 innings pitched.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Howie Kendrick's homer in St. Louis gave the Nationals a team-record-tying 215 homers this season. At the moment, the Braves and Nats are both tied for their franchise records. With one more dinger apiece, they'll become the ninth and 10th teams this season to set new single-season home run records.

Washington's Howie Kendrick is halfway to a cycle. After tripling and scoring in the first, Kendrick hit one out to center off St. Louis starter Miles Mikolas in the fourth, giving the Nats a 2-1 lead. Kendrick is now 8 for 10 lifetime against Mikolas.

Can't name the last time I saw a Fenway Park crowd gave a standing ovation to a player on an opposing team like Mike Yastrzemski. With both teams out of the playoff hunt, the Boston crowd is rooting for the story tonight.

Nationals starter Patrick Corbin was all but out of a bases-loaded jam in the third, but Trea Turner booted a two-out grounder off the bat of the Cardinals' Paul DeJong that allowed the tying run to score. We're knotted at one after three.

Carl Yastrzemski hit 237 home runs at Fenway Park in his 23-year Hall of Fame career with the Red Sox. Now grandson Mike has one. The Giants outfielder, with grandpa in attendance, hits a fourth-inning home run off Nathan Eovaldi and gets a nice ovation from the Red Sox fans. One of the cooler moments of the season.

Miguel Sano cranked his 30th home run, making the Twins the first team in major league history with five 30-homer hitters (Nelson Cruz, Max Kepler, Eddie Rosario, Mitch Garver and Sano). There have been a lot of home runs in 2019! Twelve other teams in MLB history have had four 30-homer hitters. The Braves, Dodgers and A's are the only other teams with three 30-homer guys so far this season.

You can't make this up. In his Fenway Park debut, Mike Yastrzemski, grandson of Red Sox legend and Hall-of-Famer Carl Yastzremski, hits a home run over the center field fence in his second at-bat in the fourth inning. Red Sox fans gave him a standing ovation. What a moment.

The MRI in Rich Hill's knee showed something similar to what he dealt with in spring training, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. No structural damage; it's about pain tolerance, but it also means the Dodgers won't have a traditional fourth starter in the postseason. A Game 4, Roberts said, will be "a little unconventional." Ross Stripling, who will come out of the bullpen in relief of Caleb Ferguson tonight, will be among the nine or so relievers to make the team.

Dodgers OF Alex Verdugo rejoined the team in Los Angeles because today is his bobblehead night. Doctors have ruled him out for the NLDS, but he is hopeful of being back for a potential NLCS. He isn't doing any baseball activities at the moment. "Extremely disappointing," Verdugo said.

Craig Kimbrel threw 16 pitches in a simulated game on Monday as he continues to recover from elbow soreness. He threw mostly fastballs but dropped in a couple curveballs at the end of his session. Joe Maddon was one of those watching him and says he could be activated by this weekend. It all depends on how he feels tomorrow: “He looked really good. There was no hesitation with his arm. He wasn't guarding whatsoever. The fastball was alive. Maybe the command of the curve was off but I thought the break was there. It was very encouraging.”

The Cardinals announced that Hall of Fame manager Whitey Herzong, 87, suffered a minor stroke on Monday during his charity golf tournament. According to the team's statement, Herzon reports that has received treatment and is "doing well." Herzog managed the Redbirds to three pennants and a championship in the 1980s and, in the 1970s, guided the Kansas City Royals to three straight division titles.

Not the usual ballpark sight: The Cardinals have a garden going on the perimeter of the upper concourse at Busch Stadium. Among its uses is to supply fresh herbs for the chefs at the stadium.

That flock of Cardinals out there in center field is the team gathering for their annual photo. Wonder if they sign each other's yearbook?
