SS Zack Cozart's double helps Reds rally to win
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:27 pm ET) Shortstop Zack Cozart's lone hit of the day was a big one, as his eighth-inning double proved to be the difference as the Reds rallied to beat the Nationals 8-5 on Saturday. 

Sitting on an 0-for-3 day, Cozart connected with two outs, driving a ball deep to center to help erase a 5-4 defict and spark a four-run eighth that propeled the Reds to their first back-to-back wins since May 12-14. 

Cozart now has 21 RBIs on the year and is hitting .271.


Marlins SP Tom Koehler gets no-decision on Saturday vs. Mets
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:24 pm ET) Marlins starter Tom Koehler struggled in a no-decision on Saturday, as the Marlins topped the Mets 9-5. Koehler was unable to get out of the fourth, as he went 3 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on seven hits. Koehler had trouble with his control, as he walked four and struck out just one. Just 39 of his 66 pitches went for strikes on the afternoon.

Most of the runs against him came as part of a four-run fourth inning. Koehler's ERA rose to 4.01 with the sub-par performance. He'll look to right the ship in his next start, scheduled for Friday in Coloardo. 


Mets SP Jonathon Niese gets roughed up by the Marlins Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:19 pm ET) The struggles for Mets starter Jonathon Niese continued on Saturday. Niese managed to go just four innings in a no-decision against the Marlins. It was his shortest start since July of last season. The left-hander surrendered five runs (four earned) on seven hits. He struck out three and did not issue a walk. Niese labored in this one, needing 82 pitches to get through the four innings.

Niese gave up a solo home run to Giancarlo Stanton in the third inning, and a two-run shot to J.T. Realmuto in the fourth. His offense was able to get him off the hook, as Niese picked up the no-decision in the eventual 9-5 loss.

Niese (3-5) has now allowed 20 earned runs in his last four starts, watching his ERA climp from 2.49 to 4.42 over that stretch.

He'll try to turn things around in his next start, scheduled for Friday in Arizona. 


Orioles SP Bud Norris to pitch in Triple-A on Tuesday
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:11 pm ET) Orioles starter Bud Norris, who is still recovering from a nasty case of bronchitis that caused him to lose 10 pounds, will make a rehab start at Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, per CSN Mid-Atlantic. 

Norris, who made a rehab start last week at Double-A, was considered for a start on Wednesday, but the Birds decided that he could use another outing to build up his stamina. Norris went 1-4 with a 9.88 ERA in six starts before going on the disabled list.


Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz to throw off mound on Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:10 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz is scheduled to throw off the mound on Sunday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Feliz, who has been on the 15-day DL since May 20 with an abscess near his arm pit, has begun throwing, but has not been on the mound since going on the disabled list.


Phillies' Cesar Hernandez knocks pinch-hit home run on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:09 pm ET) Phillies infielder Cesar Hernandez launched a pinch-hit, three-run home run on Saturday, but it was not enough as the Rockies won by a score of 5-2. Hernandez came on in the eighth inning to pinch-hit for the pitcher, and took the Rockies' Rafael Betancourt deep for his first home run of the season.

His solo shot on Saturday was his first home run in over a year, as his last home run came on May 17, 2014. In limited playing time this season, Hernandez is hitting .250 over 78 at-bats.


Rockies closer John Axford closes out Phillies for ninth save
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:03 pm ET) Rockies closer John Axford nailed down his ninth save of the season in the 5-2 win over the Phillies on Saturday. Axford worked around a pair of singles to lead off the inning, as he got the next three hitters out in order to close out the game. 

The veteran right-hander has been stellar, as he is a perfect 9-for-9 in save opportunities this season.  


Astros 1B Chris Carter connects for eighth home run of the season
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:02 pm ET) Astros first baseman Chris Carter went 1 for 3 at the plate in Houston's 3-0 win over the White Sox on Saturday. Carter, who also drew a walk in the game, did his damage in the eighth when he blasted a solo home run off of Dan Jennings, his eighth of the season.

Carter is now hitting .188 with 27 RBI on the year.


Astros DH Evan Gattis blasts 11th home run of the season
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:00 pm ET) Astros designated hitter Evan Gattis went 2 for 4 at the plate in Houston's 3-0 win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Gattis did his damage in the eighth inning when he crushed a Dan Jennings pitch out of the park for a solo home run, his 11th of the season. Gattis is now hitting .230 with 31 RBI on the season.


Rockies' Ben Paulsen slugs a home run for second straight game
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:00 pm ET) Rockies first baseman/outfielder Ben Paulsen homered for the second straight game in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Phillies. Paulsen, who had a pinch-hit home run on Friday, clubbed a key solo shot in the top of the seventh to give the Rockies some insurance in the late innings. 

The 27-year-old slugger now has three home runs after making his season-debut on May 19, and still sports a very healthy .359 batting average.
