Player News
Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman enjoys a two-tater Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:29 am ET) White-hot Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman continued to torment opposing pitchers Wednesday night in St. Louis. He slammed solo homers in the fourth and sixth innings and tallied the game-winner with an RBI double in the eighth.

Zimmerman has 12 hits in his last 29 at-bats with six home runs and 13 RBI. He has also run his hit streak to seven games.


Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon struggles, but earns save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:24 am ET) Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon wasn't perfect Wednesday in trying to remain perfect for the year. But he was good enough in St. Louis to nail down his 23rd save without blowing one.

Papelbon arrived with a one-run lead in the ninth and maintained it - but not without heightening the drama a bit. Two baserunners reached with one out, but he fanned Tommy Pham and induced Kolten Wong to ground out to end it.


Astros SP Scott Kazmir ousted early against the Mariners
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:24 am ET) Astros starting pitcher Scott Kazmir lasted just 4 1/3 innings during his start against the Mariners on Wednesday.

Kazmir gave up three runs on seven hits. He struck out five batters and gave up two walks during the no-decision.

Kazmir now has a 2.56 ERA this year.


Mariners SP Taujuan Walker gives up three runs in no-decision
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:22 am ET) Mariners starting pitcher Taijuan Walker was solid in his start against the Astros on Wednesday.

Walker allowed three runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings. He recorded three strikeouts but also gave up three walks in the no-decision.

Walker now owns a 4.51 ERA this season.


Cardinals P Tyler Lyons notches first quality start of 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:17 am ET) Part-time Cardinals starter Tyler Lyons could eventually become a full-time starter if he continues to perform as he did Wednesday against visiting Washington.

The left-hander held the Nationals to three runs on seven hits in six innings with one walk and six strikeouts. He received a no-decision.

The home run ball proved to be his undoing. He surrendered two blasts to Ryan Zimmerman and another to Jayson Werth.

It marked his first quality start in seven outings this season.


Nationals SP Max Scherzer escapes with no-decision
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:10 am ET) Nationals ace Max Scherzer played the role of Houdini in St. Louis on Wednesday. His effort could have been named after an old movie - The Great Escape.

Scherzer did not retire the Cardinals in order in any of the six innings he pitched. But he got out of one jam after another in leaving with a no-decision. He gave up two runs - it could have been much worse - on 11 hits. Scherzer had his strikeout pitches going, which certainly helped. He fanned 10.

The only runs he allowed came on a Brandon Moss homer in the second and Tommy Pham single in the fifth.

Scherzer still remains winless in seven starts since July 30.


Debut for Brewers SP Zach Davies goes downhill fast
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) For a major league debut, the performance of Brewers starter Zach Davies was acceptable Wednesday night against Pittsburgh. For an outing in general, not so much.

Davies surrendered four runs on four hits in 4 1/3 innings with three walks and three strikeouts.

The right-hander appeared destined for a fine effort when he allowed only a walk in his first three innings. But he was battered the second time around in the order. A three-run homer by former Brewer Aramis Ramirez wrecked the shutout and two singles in the fifth ended his evening.


Rays 3B Evan Longoria slugs two home runs in loss
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9/2/2015) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria hit two home runs during his team's loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

Longoria went 2 for 5 with three RBI.


Orioles 1B Chris Davis slams two home runs in win
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9/2/2015) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis went 3 for 4 with two home runs and three RBI in his team's win over the Rays on Wednesday.

Davis hit his 37th and 38th home runs of the season in the victory. 


Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez allows four runs in no-decision
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9/2/2015) Rays starting pitcher Erasmo Ramirez didn't have his best stuff during his start against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Ramirez allowed four runs on six hits in just four innings of work. He allowed a home run but did manage to record six strikeouts in the no-decision.

Ramirez now has a 3.84 ERA this season.
