    Saturday’s List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind……..

    13) Rashard Davis returned punts for the Eagles Thursday night; the free agent from James Madison was signed earlier this week.

    Last Saturday, while the chaos in Charlottesville was going on, Davis was working as a waiter in a restaurant in Charlottesville near the park where the mayhem with the statue of Robert E Lee occurred. He was hiding from his boss in the restaurant as he took calls from his agent updating him on the Eagles’ deal.

    One day you’re a waiter, the next day you’re playing ball on national TV. Pretty cool.

    12) Something to think about when college football kicks off next weekend; only one of the last 19 national champs lost a non-conference game, Ohio State in 2014 (to Virginia Tech).

    11) There were 345 replay reviews in the NFL last year, the fewest since 2009, and 70 less than in 2015.

    10) 130 free agents changed teams in the NFL this offseason, also the fewest since 2009.

    9) Bill Belichick’s coaching record: 263-125
    Tom Brady won-loss record: 208-61
    Belichick’s record without Brady: 55-64

    8) Baltimore Ravens play in London in Week 3, but they don’t have the usual bye the next week- they host their rival, the Steelers. Ravens don’t have their bye until Week 10.

    7) Penn State gave coach James Franklin a 6-year contract extension, worth $34.3M. Franklin is 25-15 at PSU, 14-11 in league games, 1-2 in bowl games; Nittany Lions were 11-3 last year.

    6) Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers struggled in Thursday night’s loss to Tampa Bay, now they’re bringing in Dan Carpenter to compete with Myers. Maybe it is contagious; Jacksonville lost to the Buccaneers Thursday, who just fired their kicker last weekend.

    5) Le’Veon Bell’s agent had an agreement with the Steelers on a contract back in mid-July, but Bell nixed the deal at the last minute. Not sure if that was a great move by him.

    4) Arizona football coach Rich Rodriguez is being sued by his old agents for $230,250; he fired them a couple of years ago, but they say he didn’t pay them enough. Rodriguez agreed to pay them 10% of the money he made from CBS Sports Network, 4% of his money from Arizona.

    Rodriguez is a good dude; I have no idea about this lawsuit, but when he left CBS to coach at Arizona, the crew at CBS left his chair empty for their first show without him, thats how much they thought of him.

    3) During the Blue Jays-Cubs game Friday, the Cubs’ roving reporter interviewed hockey star Patrick Sharp, who was sitting in the stands. Sharp grew up rooting for the Jays, but he tried to be political saying which team he was rooting for.

    2) Not the best week to be a statue, eh? Except for the home run sculpture in Miami, which Dade County says can’t be taken out of Marlins Park.

    1) Some good news for Marlins’ fans; David Samson is out as team president. This is a guy who was president of a baseball team who went on Survivor during baseball season— he was the first person voted out on Survivor.

    At one point, he was Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria’s stepson. Now the Marlins are rid of Loria and Samson, and they’re much better off.

    Weekend Outlook
    August 18, 2017

    L.A. Dodgers (85-34) at Detroit (53-67)
    Scheduled Rotation: Hill (8-4) vs. Zimmermann (7-9), Ryu (4-6) vs. Fulmer (10-10), Maeda (11-4) vs. Verlander (8-8)
    Series Price: Dodgers -220, Tigers +180


    It's August 18 and the Dodgers already have 85 wins, and they're doing it without their ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw. They've gone 24-5 since the All-Star break and have gone 50-9 in their last 59 and start a seven-game road trip in Detroit.The Dodgers are 14-3 in Interleague play and all three losses came at the hands of the Tigers. They split a pair at Dodger Stadium in early April, but then it was the Tigers holding serve at home winning both meetings, one of which was a 14-5 Tigers win in matchup between Justin Verlander and Hyun-Jin Ryu.

    The Tigers enter this weekend's play on a four-game losing streak and have the majors second-worst ERA (5.08). The Dodgers are ranked MLB's No. 1 in ERA (3.11). It's hard to make a case for the Tigers to win more than one game in this series.

    Detroit's poor form happens when it's supposed to, winning just once in its last 11 games as an underdog. Detroit's poor pitching has helped eight of its last nine go 'over' the total. Check the winds on that angle as well; Friday it was blowing out 12 mph to left field.

    The Dodgers are currently the Las Vegas Westgate SuperBook's 2/1 favorite to win the World Series.

    Arizona (67-54) at Minnesota (60-59)
    Scheduled Rotation: (Godley 5-5) vs. Santana (12-7), Shipley (0-1) vs. Colon (4-10)
    Series Price: Diamondbacks -135, Twins +125


    After splitting a four game home-and-away series with Houston, Arizona just went 4-6 on a brutal 10-game stretch that began at Chase Field by going 1-2 against the Dodgers and then 1-2 against the Cubs. Since going 53-36 at the All-Star break -- a club record, they've stumbled in the second-half, 14-18.

    The Twins have won eight of their last 11, but Arizona has won 11 of 14 inter-league games. They have MLB's No. 2 ranked team ERA (3.61), Minnesota is No. 26 (4.77). This is a team defining series for the Twins, who are just 28-35 at home this season. They're six games out of the American League Central, but are in the middle of a wild eight-team race for the final AL Wild Card.

    Eight teams are within three games of each other for the stretch run. The Twins are only one game behind the Angels. I'd look for Arizona to bounce back here and score quite a bit of runs in this series. Greinke will handle Saturday, so they have to win either Friday or Sunday to win. Bartolo Colon goes Sunday, so that's a good bet against and try the 'over' in that game as well. Colon has gone 'over' the total in 13 of his 19 starts.

    Cleveland (66-53) at Kansas City (61-59)
    Scheduled Rotation: Kluber (11-3) vs. Kennedy (4-8), Bauer (11-8) vs. Vargas (14-6), Salazar (5-5) vs. Hammel (5-9)
    Series Price: Indians -155, Royals +135


    We still have a long ways to go in the regular season, but the feeling I get in this series is that it's kind of a big deal for the Royals. KC is already 5.5 games behind the Indians in the AL Central while being just half-game behind the Angels for the final AL Wild Card. They'll meet again next weekend in Cleveland and they'll play there again for four games from Sept. 13-17, their last meeting of the regular season. The Royals have a 5-4 edge in the nine meetings already this season.

    The Indians return home after a successful eight-game road trip where they won six of their last seven to widen their division lead. The up and down Royals are currently trending up with wins in four of their last five. The 'under' has cashed in 11 of the past 15 meetings. And the Indians are currently on a 13-3-1 'under' run improving their MLB-best 'under' record at 70-43-6. That's cashing at a 61 percent rate just by blindly betting them 'under' the total. There's some pretty good pitching matchups in all three games. Other than double-digit mph winds blowing out, the 'under' will be my focus all weekend in this series.

    N.Y. Yankees (65-55) at Boston (69-51)
    Scheduled Rotation: Montgomery (7-6) vs. Pomeranz (12-4), Sabathia (9-5) vs. Sale (14-4), Gray (7-7) vs. Fister (2-6)
    Series Price: Red Sox -170, Yankees +150


    The Yankees lost two of three last week at home to the Red Sox, and Station Casinos sports books is saying it's likely to happen again this weekend when they meet at Fenway Park where the Sox are -170 to win the series. However, it's the Yankees that hold a 7-5 season lead. The Red Sox lead the Yanks by four games in the American League East. Boston is currently on a run of winning eight of its last nine home games and winning 11 of its last 12 as a favorite. I love this series traditionally, but I have to admit the last couple of seasons haven't exactly displayed the intensity (A-Rod vs. Varitek), or hate, of years past. Maybe this race down the stretch will start a new chapter in the rivalry.

    Oakland (53-68) at Houston (74-47)
    Scheduled Rotation: Manea (8-7) vs. Keuchel (10-2), Graveman (3-3) vs. McHugh (0-2), Cotton (5-10) vs. Peacock (10-1)
    Series Price: Astros -300, Athletics +260

    The Astros have beat up on the A's winning 10 of 12 this season by an 84-46 combined score, but that all came in the first-half. Houston has gone 14-18 in the second-half and their in the middle of an awful 6-13 skid. Is this just a hiccup for Houston or have they really run out of gas? Getting swept at the White Sox eight days ago was a definite low point to what has been an amazing season.

    So the question here is whether it's worth taking a shot with Oakland in a couple spots and maybe take them to win the series at +270. The only problem with Oakland is that they've won only 16 times in their last 51 road games. They've also only won six of the past 29 meetings. The Astros rating right now is more about their first-half, so there's going to be 15 cents of value on Oakland in each game. Still, the A's might be just what the Astros needed to bust of this slump.

    Seattle (61-61) at Tampa Bay (60-63)
    Scheduled Rotation: Ramirez (4-4) vs. Pruitt (6-3), Miranda (7-6) vs. Odorizzi (6-6), Gallardo (5-8) vs. Snell (1-6)
    Series Price: Rays -145, Mariners +135


    The Mariners are 1.5-games behind the Angels for the final AL Wild Card and the Rays are only three back, so this series has a nice story-line behind it. Seattle has won seven of the past nine meetings at Tampa Bay. In their only meeting this season, the M's swept three at Safeco Field in early June. They were blowouts -- all three by at least six runs. The combined score of the series was 28-7. The Mariners won their last two against Baltimore after losing five straight

    This series begins a long 12-game road trip that will define who the Mariners really are and where they're going. They are a fun team to watch nightly and the second-half has gone well for them at 18-14 to get them back to .500. Look for lots of runs in this series. Over their last 10 games, Seattle's starters have a 6.43 ERA and the bullpen isn't much better at 4.39. Seven of those last 10 games went 'over' the total. The Westgate SuperBook has Seattle at 40/1 odds and Tampa Bay at 60/1 to win the World Series.

    L.A. Angels (62-59) at Baltimore (59-62)
    Scheduled Rotation: Heaney (0-0) vs. Hellickson (7-7), Ramirez (10-10) vs. Gausman (9-8), Bridwell (7-1) vs. Miley (6-10)
    Series Price: Orioles -140, Angels +120


    Check out the Angels hanging on to the second AL Wild Card! It may be only a half-game lead over the Royals, but it's still impressive considering this team wasn't expected to do much. They've won seven of their last eight and the run started last week at home against the Orioles, who they took two of three from. They then started a four-game series at Seattle, who were ahead of the Angels in the AL West at the time, and promptly swept the M's. They took two of three at Washington and here they are at Baltimore ready to close out this already successful road trip.

    Baltimore has been a completely different team at home going 35-23 this season, but lately they've started weekend series out terribly going 3-13 in their last 16 Friday games. Dating back to last season, the past five meetings between these two have stayed 'under' the number. The Angels are currently on a four-game 'under' streak. Baltimore has lost three of its last four including the last two at Seattle. Riding the hot Angels here to win the series looks to be the winning move with Friday and Sunday's games being their most likely wins.

      MLB notebook: Cubs place LHP Lester on DL
      August 18, 2017

      The Chicago Cubs placed left-hander Jon Lester on the 10-day disabled list Friday with left lat tightness and shoulder fatigue, but the injury is not expected to be season-ending.

      Lester was pulled in the second inning of Thursday afternoon's game against the Cincinnati Reds due to the injury and saw a team doctor after the game. He allowed nine runs (seven earned) in 1 2/3 innings as the Reds outlasted the Chicago Cubs 13-10.

      "There's no minimum or maximum, just that it's a 10-day stay and then we'll figure it out," Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters Friday of Lester's return.

      Lester was replaced by left-hander Mike Montgomery in Thursday's game after facing 11 batters in the second inning and Cincinnati leading 8-0. Montgomery will take Lester's slot in the rotation.

      --The St. Louis Cardinals placed right-hander Adam Wainwright on the 10-day disabled list with a right elbow impingement, the team announced.

      Fellow right-hander Mike Mayers was recalled from Triple-A Memphis to take the roster spot of Wainwright, who leads the Cardinals with 12 wins.

      Wainwright owns a 12-5 mark with a 5.12 ERA in 23 starts this season. The 35-year-old has pitched just 11 innings over his last three starts since returning from the disabled list with mid-back tightness.

      Mayers has pitched four innings in two relief appearances with St. Louis, posting a 4.50 ERA. The 25-year-old notched a 5-6 mark with a 3.36 ERA in 25 appearances with Memphis.

      --Former New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter and his wife, Hannah, celebrated the birth of their first child on Thursday.

      The couple was married in July 2016, less than two years after the 14-time All-Star retired from baseball. The Yankees and The Players' Tribune tweeted their congratulations to the couple after the arrival of Bella Raine Jeter.

      "Congrats to Derek & Hannah Jeter on the birth of their daughter, Bella Raine Jeter. We can't wait to meet her," the Yankees wrote on the Twitter site.

      "Congratulations Derek and hannahbjeter on the birth of your baby girl, Bella Raine Jeter, born Thursday, Aug. 17," wrote The Players' Tribune, which Jeter helped found.

      --The Los Angeles Dodgers activated first baseman Adrian Gonzalez from the 60-day disabled list.

      The five-time All-Star was sidelined with a herniated lumbar disc in his back. He last played with the Dodgers on June 11.

      Los Angeles optioned utility man Rob Segedin to Triple-A Oklahoma City to create the roster space.

      Gonzalez batted just .255 with one homer and 23 RBIs in 49 games this season. He also won't be the starting first baseman upon his return for Friday night's road game against the Detroit Tigers due to the stellar campaign rookie All-Star Cody Bellinger is enjoying.

      -- The Cincinnati Reds activated right fielder Scott Schebler from the 10-day disabled list, the team announced.

      At the same time, the Reds placed right-hander Scott Feldman (knee) on the DL.

      Schebler, who has hit 23 homers, has been sidelined since July 30 with a shoulder injury. He is batting .228 with 45 RBIs.

      Feldman is on the disabled list for the second time due to his knee woes. He returned on Aug. 12 after missing nearly four weeks and gave up nine runs in 7 2/3 innings in two outings.

      --The Kansas City Royals placed right-hander Joakim Soria on the 10-day disabled list, the team announced.

      Soria is dealing with a strained left oblique muscle and has dealt with the issue for most of August.

      Soria is 4-3 with a 3.96 ERA this season. He has struck out 59 batters in 50 innings.

      Kansas City recalled right-hander Kevin McCarthy from Triple-A Omaha to fill the roster vacancy. McCarthy has made 19 appearances for the Royals this season and is 1-0 with a 1.88 ERA.

      --The Minnesota Twins placed outfielder/designated hitter Robbie Grossman on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured left thumb.

      Grossman, playing right field, suffered the injury in Thursday's second game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians after he collided with center fielder Byron Buxton on a fly ball in the gap in the second inning.

      Grossman singled in his first at-bat after the collision but was replaced before his turn came up the second time around.

      To replace Grossman on the 25-man roster, the Twins recalled catcher Mitch Garver from Triple-A Rochester. In addition, the Twins returned right-hander Aaron Slegers, who was the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader, to Triple-A.

      Dodgers get OF Granderson in trade with Mets
      August 19, 2017


      The Los Angeles Dodgers added a veteran on Friday to bolster their already-strong roster before the postseason begins in a little more than a month.

      The Dodgers acquired outfielder Curtis Granderson and cash considerations from the New York Mets in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.

      The 36-year-old Granderson has a .254 career batting average with 312 home runs and 853 RBIs in 1,760 games spanning 14 major league seasons with the Detroit Tigers (2004-09), New York Yankees (2010-13) and New York Mets (2014-17). The three-time All-Star (2009, '11, '12) and 2011 Silver Slugger also won the 2016 Roberto Clemente Award for his community work.

      Defensively, Granderson has appeared 1,246 games in center field, 445 games in right field and 59 games in left field in his career. He also has played in 51 postseason games, tied for the 14th most among active players.

      Granderson has a .276 average in his last 71 games since May 21 with 40 runs, 13 doubles, two triples, 16 homers and 38 RBIs in that span. Overall, he's batting .228 with 19 homers and 52 RBIs in 111 games this season for the Mets, including .282 with runners in scoring position.

      To make room on the 40-man roster, Los Angeles designated right-hander Dylan Floro for assignment. The 26-year-old Floro was claimed from the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 4 and appeared in three games with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

      And with that deal, the exodus from the Mets' clubhouse of veteran players continued less than a week after the Mets sent Neil Walker to the Milwaukee Brewers. That was a few days after they had traded Jay Bruce to the Cleveland Indians and after the trade deadline when they dealt away Lucas Duda and closer Addison Reed.

      Granderson was in his fourth season with the Mets and 13th overall after four seasons with the Yankees and five with the Tigers.

      "A little bittersweet," Granderson said before exchanging hugs and phone numbers with now ex-teammates such as Robert Gsellman and Wilmer Flores. "But to get an opportunity to play in the postseason is going to be exciting."

      Granderson is in the last season of a four-year, $60 million contract.

      The Dodgers (86-34) are on pace to tie the major league record for wins in a season with 116.

      As for the Mets, Granderson acknowledged, "Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to do that this year. But all the things that have been said that we talked about doing, I think we did."

        LEADING OFF: Granderson joins Dodgers, trio goes for No. 15
        August 19, 2017

        A look at what's happening all around the majors Saturday:


        DODGERS LOADING UP


        Curtis Granderson could join the Dodgers at Detroit after the veteran outfielder was acquired from the New York Mets late Friday night. Los Angeles is running away with the NL West. The Dodgers are 86-34 after beating the Tigers 8-5 in the series opener. The 36-year-old Granderson - hitting .228 with 19 homers and 52 RBIs this season, gives Los Angeles another option for the outfield along with Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, Chris Taylor and Joc Pederson.

        SEEKING NO. 15

        Boston's Chris Sale, Arizona's Zack Greinke and Kansas City's Jason Vargas will all be trying to catch the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw for the major league lead with 15 wins. Sale (14-4, 2.51 ERA) takes the mound against the Yankees' CC Sabathia (9-5, 4.05) as the Red Sox look to continue a hot stretch that has seen them win 13 of 15 to open a five-game lead over New York in the AL East. Greinke (14-5, 3.01) will start against Minnesota's Jose Berrios (10-5, 4.27). Greinke has allowed 18 earned runs while going 6-1 in his past nine starts. Vargas (14-6, 3.45) goes for his career-best 15th win and will face Cleveland's Trevor Bauer, who pitched in relief Thursday night.

        TEXAS HOMECOMING

        White Sox left-hander Derek Holland is set to face the Rangers in Arlington for the first time Saturday night after spending his first eight seasons with Texas. He signed with Chicago as a free agent after going to the World Series twice with the Rangers and becoming a fan favorite. Holland's old teammates roughed him up for five runs in 5 1/3 innings in a 10-4 Texas victory at Chicago on July 1. ''It's going to be way different,'' Holland said. ''Just being able to pitch where it all started. This is where all the memories began.''

        REDS' ROOKIE ROTATION

        Right-hander Robert Stephenson is expected to come off the DL to start against the Braves on Saturday night, giving Cincinnati the chance to have four rookies in its rotation. Sal Ramano started Friday night, Asher Wojciechowski has started seven games and could return to the rotation next week, and Luis Castillo is scheduled to start Sunday.

        STRUGGLING

        Pittsburgh and Philadelphia will be looking to end six-game losing streaks, tied for the longest current skids in the majors. The Pirates will send Chad Kuhl (5-8, 4.64) against St. Louis' Michael Wacha (9-5, 3.85). The Cardinals had an eight-run lead in the eighth inning Friday night before holding on for an 11-10 win. The Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff (3-7, 4.45) faces the Giants' Ty Blach (8-8, 4.37) in a matchup of the NL's two worst teams. ... Detroit takes an AL-leading five-game skid into the middle game of their series against the Dodgers.

                            MLB roundup: Yankees cool off Red Sox
                            August 19, 2017


                            BOSTON -- CC Sabathia came off the disabled list and outpitched Chris Sale and became the American League's all-time leading left-hander in strikeouts in leading the New York Yankees to a 4-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night.

                            Sabathia (10-5, 3-0 against Boston) passed Mickey Lolich with his 2,680th career strikeout en route to working six innings and allowing two hits. He has yielded two runs in 20 innings against the first-place Red Sox, who saw their lead in the American League East drop to four games over New York.

                            Tyler Austin crashed a three-run homer in his first career at-bat against Sale (14-5) in the second inning and Todd Frazier hit his second homer in as many nights for the Yankees. Boston lost for only the third time in its last 16 games.

                            Dodgers 3, Tigers 0

                            DETROIT -- Recently returned Adrian Gonzalez lined a single to right that scored new acquisition Curtis Granderson from second with two outs in the seventh inning, breaking a scoreless tie and starting Los Angeles on its way to victory over Detroit.

                            Los Angeles' latest win streak stands at six games with 21 wins in its last 24 games and 52 victories out of its last 61 to achieve baseball's best record at 87-34. Yasmani Grandal hit his 16th home run of the season in the ninth to make it 3-0.

                            Ross Stripling (3-4) earned the victory with two scoreless relief innings. Brandon Morrow pitched the eighth and Kenley Jansen earned his 33rd save for working the ninth.

                            Angels 5, Orioles 1

                            BALTIMORE -- Mike Trout and Luis Valbuena each homered twice in the first four innings as Los Angeles defeated Baltimore.

                            Trout's first-inning homer gave the 26-year-old 25 for the season. He became the third player in history to hit 25 homers six times before his age 26 season. Eddie Mathews and Frank Robinson are the others.

                            Angels starter JC Ramirez (11-10) dodged some trouble in the early innings as the Orioles put runners in scoring position in the first and third but came away allowing only one run. He went 5 2/3 innings before leaving with right forearm irritation in the sixth.

                            Indians 5, Royals 0

                            KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Trevor Bauer, Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen combined on a seven-hitter as Cleveland beat skidding Kansas City.

                            The Indians have outscored the Royals 15-1 in the first two games of this series. Bauer (12-8) gave up seven hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings with four strikeouts. Shaw and Allen did not allow a baserunner.

                            Jason Vargas (14-7), who has only two wins since June 30 after being named to the All-Star Game, yielded four runs, six hits and three walks while striking out seven in 4 2/3 innings. Kansas City is 6-12 in August.

                            Astros 3, Athletics 0

                            HOUSTON -- Collin McHugh worked six shutout innings and a reconfigured bullpen closed out Houston's victory over Oakland.

                            McHugh (1-2) earned his first victory on the season in his sixth start after missing three-plus months with an elbow injury. It was a bit of a rocky road for McHugh, who retired the side in order only once and relied on grounders and his defense to eliminate baserunners.

                            The Astros turned three double plays behind McHugh, who allowed six hits and walked one batter while striking out three, and six overall.

                            Marwin Gonzalez delivered a two-run single in the fourth inning and Alex Bregman homered in the ninth -- his second in two days.

                            Cubs 4, Blue Jays 3


                            CHICAGO -- Javier Baez drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out single in the sixth inning and Chicago hung on to beat Toronto.

                            Ian Happ scored on Baez's single up the middle after drawing a walk and advancing on a groundout. On Friday, Baez drove in three runs in the Cubs' 7-4 series-opening victory over the Blue Jays.

                            Happ also homered and had an RBI single for Chicago. Cubs starter Jose Quintana (4-2) struck out eight and allowed two runs, four hits and two walks (one intentional) in six innings.

                            Twins 5, Diamondbacks 0


                            MINNEAPOLIS -- Jose Berrios posted seven scoreless innings, and Minnesota exploded for five runs in the fourth inning against Zack Greinke to beat Arizona.

                            Joe Mauer had three hits, a walk and an RBI for the Twins, and Brian Dozier added a pair of hits as Minnesota maintained a spot as one of the American League wild-card teams with their third straight victory.

                            Berrios (11-5) allowed two hits and struck out seven batters, lowering his ERA to 3.99 in a strong sophomore season. Greinke (14-6) lasted only four innings, giving up five runs (four earned), seven hits and a season high-tying four walks. He struck out four.

                            Pirates 6, Cardinals 4

                            PITTSBURGH -- Starling Marte was 3-for-5 with one of three Pittsburgh homers and Chad Kuhl didn't let a long rain delay bother him as the Pirates snapped a six-game losing streak.

                            Pittsburgh pounded out 12 hits and rode a five-run second inning. Kuhl (6-8) retired 11 of the 13 batters he faced after the delay, with only one hit. Overall, he gave up one run on three hits, with six strikeouts and one walk, in five innings.

                            St. Louis' Michael Wacha (9-6) got rocked after he pitched a perfect first and was out of the game after four innings. He gave up five runs and seven hits, including two homers, with three strikeouts and two walks.

                            Mets 8, Marlins 1

                            NEW YORK -- Wilmer Flores and Kevin Plawecki each hit two-run homers during a seven-run sixth inning as New York snapped a five-game losing streak.

                            Rookie Dominic Smith hit his first Citi Field homer for the Mets, who benefited from three Miami errors in the sixth inning. New York's Rafael Montero (2-8) allowed one run, six hits and three walks while striking out five in six innings.

                            Marcell Ozuna had three singles, including an RBI in the sixth that broke a scoreless tie, for the Marlins, who equaled a team record by hitting into five double plays. The five double plays induced by the Mets also tied a team mark.

                            Mariners 7, Rays 6

                            ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Mitch Haniger's grand slam got Seattle an early lead en route to its fourth straight victory.

                            The Mariners had a 7-2 lead in the sixth inning and held off a rally from Tampa Bay, which had scored nine runs in its previous 10 home games. The Rays have dropped four in a row and 12 of their last 15 as they fade from the American League wild-card chase.

                            Logan Morrison had a pinch-hit solo home run in the bottom of the ninth -- his 29th of the season -- to get Tampa Bay within a run. Edwin Diaz regrouped to strike out Kevin Kiermaier and pinch hitter Corey Dickerson hit a weak ground ball as he recorded his 27th save.

                            Reds 11, Braves 8

                            ATLANTA -- Scott Schebler broke out of a 2-for-40 slump and Scooter Gennett hit his third grand slam of the season as Cincinnati opened up a seven-run lead and held off Atlanta.

                            Schebler was 3 for 4 with double, walk, two runs scored and a RBI in his first start since late July after coming off the disabled list the day before and drawing a walk as a pinch hitter. Gennett's slam, his 21st homer of the year, gave him five RBIs for the game.

                            The Braves lost despite three homers, the last a three-run pinch shot by Matt Adams in the ninth inning off Blake Wood. Atlanta got the tying run to the plate, but Michael Lorenzen got Matt Kemp, just off the disabled list, to bounce into a force at third base to end the game.

                              MLB notebook: Granderson joins Dodgers; Pederson to minors
                              August 19, 2017


                              Newly acquired outfielder Curtis Granderson was activated by the Los Angeles Dodgers and was in the starting lineup Saturday afternoon against the Detroit Tigers.

                              It was among a flurry of moves by the Dodgers, who placed right-hander Yu Darvish on the 10-day disabled list and optioned outfielder Joc Pederson and left-hander Edward Paredes to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

                              Darvish, a trade-deadline acquisition from the Texas Rangers, is dealing with lower-back tightness. The move to the DL for the right-hander was retroactive to Aug. 17. The 31-year-old has made three starts for the Dodgers, posting a 2-0 record and 2.50 ERA. He was 6-9 with a 4.01 ERA in 22 starts with the Rangers this season.

                              Los Angeles acquired Granderson and cash considerations from the New York Mets on Friday night in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations, creating a logjam for playing time in the outfield.

                              Pederson was an obvious candidate to be benched or demoted to the minors as he continues to battle a horrific slump. He was 1-for-3 in Friday's win at Detroit, only his second hit in his last 41 at-bats.

                              --The Washington Nationals brought back one ace less than 24 hours after placing another on the disabled list.

                              Right-hander Stephen Strasburg was activated to start Saturday night's game at the San Diego Padres after fellow right-hander Max Scherzer went on the DL Friday night because of neck inflammation.

                              Strasburg (10-3, 3.25 ERA) has been sidelined with a right elbow nerve impingement since pitching two scoreless innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 23. He went on the disabled list four days later. The No. 1 overall draft pick by Washington in 2009, Strasburg pitched five innings in a rehab start at Class A Potomac on Monday, allowing one run and three hits over five innings.

                              Scherzer (12-5) was scheduled to start Friday night's game but was a late scratch due to a recurring neck issue. The move is retroactive to Aug. 15.

                              --The Chicago Cubs claimed veteran catcher Rene Rivera off waivers from the New York Mets to add insurance at the position.

                              Rivera has played all or part of nine major league seasons with the Seattle Mariners (2004-06), Minnesota Twins (2011), San Diego Padres (2013-14), Tampa Bay Rays (2015) and Mets (2016-17).

                              The 34-year-old is a career .215 hitter with 34 homers and 141 RBIs in 453 games. With the Mets in 2017, he was batting .230 with eight homers and 23 RBIs in 54 games.

                              The Cubs lost catcher Willson Contreras to a hamstring injury on Aug. 9 and traded last month for Alex Avila from the Detroit Tigers. Rookie Victor Caratini was promoted from the minors after Contreras went down. To make room for Rivera on the 40-man roster, right-hander Aaron Brooks was designated for assignment.

                              --The Kansas City Royals placed right-handed pitcher Neftali Feliz on the disabled list because of right ulnar nerve palsy.

                              His DL stint is retroactive to Aug. 14, making him eligible to return on Aug. 24.

                              In a corresponding move, the Royals recalled left-handed pitcher Eric Skoglund from Triple-A Omaha before Saturday's game against the Cleveland Indians.

                              Feliz signed a one-year, $5.35 million deal with the Milwaukee Brewers in the offseason but was released on June 19 after he went 1-5 with a 6.00 ERA, 21 strikeouts and 15 walks in 27 innings, while allowing eight home runs.

                              --The Texas Rangers placed outfielder Carlos Gomez on the 10-day disabled list for the excision of a cyst behind his right shoulder, the team announced.

                              Gomez, 31, has not played since last Sunday. The move is retroactive to Aug. 16 and the first date he would be eligible to return to the active roster is Aug. 26.

                              Gomez is batting .251 with 15 home runs and 42 RBIs in 86 games (83 starts) this season. He was also on the disabled list from May 15 to June 15 with a right hamstring strain.

                              To take his place on the 25-man roster, the Rangers recalled infielder Phil Gosselin from Triple-A Round Rock.

                              --The Chicago White Sox placed right-hander Reynaldo Lopez on the 10-day disabled list with a strained back.

                              The team also called up right-hander Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Charlotte prior to Saturday's night's road game against the Texas Rangers.

                              Lopez, 23, left Thursday night's 9-8 loss to the Rangers in the fifth inning with soreness on his right side. The DL move is retroactive to Aug. 18. He is 0-1 with a 6.97 ERA in 10 1/3 innings in two starts with the White Sox this season.

                              Farquhar, 30, was signed by the White Sox as a minor league free agent on July 24 after he was designated for assignment by the Tampa Bay Rays on June 29 and released July 19. He made 37 relief appearances with the Rays this season, going 2-2 with a 4.11 ERA in 35 innings.

                              --The Seattle Mariners activated outfielder Mitch Haniger from the disabled list and placed outfielder Jarrod Dyson on the 10-day DL with a right groin strain.

                              In addition, the Mariners recalled right-hander Casey Lawrence from Tacoma and optioned right-hander Sam Gaviglio to the Triple-A club. Haniger, 26, was placed on the 10-day disabled list on July 30 after being struck in the face by a pitch in the second inning on July 29. In 57 games with the Mariners this season, Haniger is batting .255 with seven home runs and 24 RBIs.

                              Dyson, 33, is hitting .255 with five home runs, 30 RBIs and 28 stolen bases in 109 games with Seattle this season. The DL move is retroactive to Aug. 17.

                              Lawrence, 29, is appearing in his fourth stint with the Mariners this season. In 13 relief appearances with Seattle, he is 1-0 with a 5.64 ERA in 30 1/3 innings. Gaviglio, 27, was recalled from Tacoma on Aug. 15 but did not appear with the Mariners during that span.

                              --The St. Louis Cardinals called up right-handed reliever Josh Lucas from Triple-A Memphis.

                              The team also optioned right-hander Mike Mayers to Memphis after Friday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

                              Lucas, 26, will be making his major league debut when he appears in his first game with the Cardinals. He is 8-1 with a 3.34 ERA in 43 appearances at Memphis, converting 14 of 17 saves.

                              Mayers, 26, pitched two-thirds of an inning in the Cardinals' 11-10 victory over the Pirates at PNC Park. He faced seven batters and allowed five runs (four earned) with four hits and a walk.
