On Saturday afternoon, Edwin Jackson took the mound for his first start at Wrigley Field since 2014, back with the Nationals — the team he had left before signing with the Cubs. Chicago blitzed Jackson for four runs in the first inning before he eventually settled in during the Nats’ 7-4 loss.
After serving up a home run on just the second pitch of the game, Drew Pomeranz settled in nicely, scattering seven hits over 6 1/3 innings while his offense backed him with two early two-run homers as the American League East-leading Red Sox defeated the White Sox, 4-1, for their fifth consecutive victory Saturday night […]

Dixon Machado hit his first Major League home run and Alex Presley added a pair of RBI singles, supporting six quality innings from Anibal Sanchez for his first win since Aug. 23 and a 6-2 Tigers win over the Giants in the rubber match of a three-game series Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park.

When the Atlanta Braves close out their three-game series with the Giants at AT&T Park on Sunday, Kurt Suzuki will be back behind the plate where he always is whenever knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is on the mound.
Since moving into the rotation, JC Ramirez has been most vulnerable in the first inning, a trend that once again proved true in the Angels’ 7-1 loss to the Tigers on Thursday night at Angel Stadium.
JC Ramirez was only making his fourth Major League start, so when he was surprised he only got four or five pitches on the mound in warmup, it took him off his game early. But he rebounded with a second straight strong performance in a 5-2 Angels win over the Rangers.
