Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria blasts off in defeat of Nationals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:21 pm ET) For a guy hitting eighth in the lineup, Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria is certainly doing one heck of an impression of a slugger.

Hechavarria maintained his status Saturday one of the hottest hitters in the sport by slamming a three-run homer in the eighth inning of a lopsided defeat of the Nationals. It marked his second three-RBI performance in the last three games.

The 26 year old owns an eight-game hitting streak in which he is 14-for-31. He has been particularly hot lately with 11 hits in 16 at-bats and six RBI in the last four games. Hechavarria has 13 RBI and 15 runs scored in 17 games on the year.


Sizzling Giancarlo Stanton keys Saturday win for Marlins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:12 pm ET) It took Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton 10 days this season to get his booming bat going. But he has certainly made up for lost time.

Stanton not only slugged his fifth homer in the last 10 games in a waltz Saturday over Washington, but he singled, doubled and walked to send his slugging percentage soaring to a season-high .569.

He was involved in the rout throughout. He doubled in a run and scored in the fourth, walked and scored in the sixth, then put the cherry on top with a 419-foot clout in the eighth.


Astros starting pitcher Scott Feldman pitches into seventh to earn win
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:11 pm ET) Astros starting pitcher Scott Feldman (2-2) yielded three earned runs on five hits and struck out six in 6 2/3 innings Saturday to defeat the Athletics.

Feldman was pulled in the seventh inning after allowing a two-run triple to second baseman Eric Sogard.

Feldman's next start is set for Thursday against the Mariners.

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira hits fifth homer in six games
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:05 pm ET) In their lopsided loss to the Mets on Saturday, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira stayed hot with another home run -- his fifth in six games.

Saturday's blast for Teixeira was a seventh-inning solo shot off Mets starter Matt Harvey.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg struggles Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:05 pm ET) Underachieving Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg continued to baffle the baseball world rather than opposing hitters Saturday.

Strasburg maintained his mediocrity in a loss to Miami, yielding four earned runs on eight hits in six innings to lower his record to 1-2 and raise his ERA to 4.88. He struck out six to give him 23 in 24 innings on the year, but he has had three bad outings in four starts.

The right-hander was rolling along through three, but doubles to Martin Prado and Giancarlo Stanton and single by Justin Bour in the fourth resulted in two runs. Three singles and a double play in the sixth doubled the output and all but ended his night.

Strasburg will try against Thursday on the road against the torrid Mets.


Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury pulled with hip tightness
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:04 pm ET) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was removed from Saturday's game against the Mets after feeling his hip tightened up, according to manager Joe Girardi per MLB.com.

Girardi is hopeful Ellsbury will be back in the lineup for Sunday's game. Ellsbury went 0 for 3 with a strikeout before being pulled. He's hitting .282 with a home run and two RBI in 71 at-bats this season.


Mets catcher, 2012 first-round pick Kevin Plaweck hits first career HR
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:01 pm ET) Mets catcher and recent call up Kevin Plawecki delivered his first career major league home run on Saturday against the Yankees .

Plawecki, the Mets 2012 first-round draft pick, was called up mid-week following the fractured-finger injury to regular catcher Travis d'Arnaud.

Plawecki became the first player to hit his first MLB homer in a Subway Series game.


Yankees starter CC Sabathia allows seven runs, falls to 0-4 on Saturday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(6:58 pm ET) Yankees starter CC Sabathia (0-4) gave up seven runs on nine hits in five innings on Saturday to suffer the loss against the Mets.

Sabathia was tagged for three home runs in the contest, including the first career long ball from Mets propsect and 2012 first-round draft pick Kevin Plawecki.

Sabathia was in control until a four-run fourth inning for the Mets broke open the game.

Sabathia's next start is scheduled for Friday in Boston.

Marlins RHP Koehler bounces back in style for Saturday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:55 pm ET) Marlins starter Tom Koehler sought to rebound Saturday from a terrible last outing. He succeeded beyond all expectations.

Koehler pitched 7 1/3 shutout innings in a blowout of Washington. Not bad considering he was blasted for seven earned runs in just 3 1/3 innings Monday.

The right-hander allowed six hits, walked one and fanned four while throwing 60 of 95 pitches for strikes. He allowed multiple baserunners in the second and sixth innings, but induced groundouts on both occasions to escape the jams.

Koehler, who lowered his ERA from 6.75 to 4.50 in raising his record to 2-2, will try to take his momentum and run with it Friday against Philadelphia.


Dodgers pitcher Joel Peralta dealing with dead arm, DL possible
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:55 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Joel Peralta is dealing with a case of dead arm and has no shoulder strength, according to MLB.com.

Peralta, who also dealt with a pain in his neck to begin the year, did not rule out the possibility of a DL stint. Peralta is 1-0 on the year with three saves in 5 2/3 innings.
