MLB News Index
  1. Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr.'s bid for yet another leadoff homer instantly evaporated as Marlins right-hander Jose Urena hit him with a first-pitch fastball, creating a couple of benches-clearing confrontations during the first inning of Wednesday night's game at SunTrust Park.
  2. Cardinals slugger Matt Carpenter exited Wednesday night's game against the Nationals in the bottom of the seventh after being hit by a Matt Grace pitch on his right hand. Entering Wednesday, Carpenter led the National League in home runs (33), slugging percentage (.592) and OPS (.981).
  3. Andrew Benintendi got jammed so thoroughly on a 3-2 sinker by Phillies lefty Aaron Loup in the seventh inning on Wednesday night that the ball managed to hit his bat twice.
  4. Here's a roundup of the latest injury news across the Majors.
  5. Showcasing his elite speed to save one run and add another, Harrison Bader's fingerprints -- or, perhaps more accurately, his footsteps -- were all over the Cardinals' 4-2 win against the Nationals on Wednesday. The victory ran the Cardinals' winning streak to eight games and assured the club a sixth straight series win, the franchise's longest such streak in four years. Bader made an outstanding catch to rob Bryce Harper of a hit, scored a run and also knocked one in.
  6. Brian Dozier delivered a walk-off sacrifice fly in the 12th inning as the Dodgers rescued their own bullpen and ended a five-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the Giants on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. Yasmani Grandal doubled to lead off the 12th and scored the winning run. Pedro Baez pitched two scoreless innings of relief in extras to earn the win, while Manny Machado collected three hits, including an RBI double. Andrew McCutchen accounted for all of the Giants' offense, hitting a game-tying three-run home run in the eighth. Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu tossed six scoreless innings in his return from the disabled list.
  7. Gerrit Cole struck out 12, and Evan Gattis and Tyler White each hit two of the Astros' season-high five homers as Houston rolled to a 12-1 win over the Rockies on Wednesday. The lopsided win coupled with the A's loss increased the Astros' lead in the AL West to two games. Tyler Anderson allowed nine runs in 4 1/3 innings for the Rockies, whose four-game winning streak came to an end.
  8. Wilson Ramos did it all in his Phillies debut, finishing the night with two doubles, three runs scored, three RBIs and his first triple since 2011. For good measure, he showed off his arm by nabbing Brock Holt on a steal attempt in the first. Mitch Moreland laced a bases-clearing double off Phillies starter Vince Velasquez in the third to open the scoring. Velasquez walked four and exited after 2 1/3 innings. Nathan Eovaldi enjoyed mixed success over five innings, but Red Sox relievers Drew Pomeranz and Joe Kelly gave up a combined four runs as the Phillies put the game away.
  9. Jose Urena hit a Major League-leading 14 batters last season. Before the Marlins' right-hander threw his first -- and, well, only -- pitch on Wednesday night, he had already hit 10 of the 541 batters he had faced in this 2018 season. So it's statistically conceivable the pitch that hit Ronald Acuna Jr. to open the bottom of the first inning at Sun Trust Park was one that just got away from Urena. An accident. Unless, of course, you actually watched the game.
  10. The New England team competing in the Little League World Series is likely hoping Aiden Wilkins can replicate the power he displayed in the first LLWS Virtual Home Run Derby Tournament.
