The Nats and Rockies will be looking to gain an advantage in the third game of their four-game set Wednesday in a contest between division leaders.
On a damp and frigid Tuesday night at Coors Field, Trea Turner swung the hottest bat, hitting for the cycle and driving in a career-high seven runs in the Nationals’ 15-12 victory over the Rockies. Washington has won eight of its last nine games.
Their bullpen as well rested as at any point this season, the Mets on Wednesday made a roster move to return to a full five-man bench and a seven-man bullpen. The team recalled utility man Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Las Vegas, optioning left-hander Sean Gilmartin to Vegas in a corresponding move.
Brewers first baseman Eric Thames left Wednesday’s game at Miller Park in the eighth inning due to a tight left hamstring. The abrupt exit in Milwaukee’s 9-4 victory marked an official end to his bid for a home run in every game against Cincinnati this season.
The Reds finally kept Eric Thames in the yard, but the Brewers enjoyed another big day at the plate anyway, completing a three-game sweep with a 9-4 win on Wednesday at Miller Park.

Didi Gregorius is excelling in his Minor League rehabilitation assignment and should return to the Yankees’ lineup this weekend, perhaps as soon as Friday against the Orioles, manager Joe Girardi said.
Before Ralf Reuland threw out the first pitch to the Angels’ series opener against the A’s on Tuesday at Angel Stadium, he received a word of advice from Hall of Famer Rod Carew, who in December received via transplant operation a heart and kidney from Reuland’s late son, former Baltimore Raven’s tight end Konrad Reuland.
James Paxton has started the 2017 season the way every player dreams of. He’s pitching like a madman, quickly becoming the anchor of the Seattle Mariners rotation. He’s made four starts, and allowed just five runs. Not in each start, but in total. That comes to a sizzling 1.78 ERA. He was given American League Player […]
