Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez blows first save in poor effort
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:26 am ET) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez has been a beacon of light in what has been a dark year for his team's pitching staff. But he descended to the level of his peers Saturday night against Cincinnati.

Rodriguez entered in the ninth with a 9-8 lead. He exited with a 12-9 deficit, courtesy of a two-run homer by Joey Votto, run-scoring passed ball and RBI single by Tucker Barnhart.

His first blown save of the season sent his ERA soaring from 2.01 to 2.58 and lowered his record to 0-3.


Reds closer Aroldis Chapman shuts door in style Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:17 am ET) There was a shortage of quality pitching in a shootout Saturday in Milwaukee. But Reds closer Aroldis Chapman gave more than a quality performance. He was lights-out.

Chapman's fastball was clocked as high as 102 mph in a dominant ninth inning that resulted in his 25th save. He fanned Elian Herrera and Jean Segura to end it.

The fine effort came at a good time for Chapman, who had been struggling a bit. He had given up nine hits and five walks over his previous eight innings.


Reds SP Keyvius Sampson clobbered in Milwaukee
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:12 am ET) When a team provides a pitcher eight runs in five innings, he's supposed to win. Reds starter Keyvius Sampson did not win Saturday night.

Sampson gave back all the runs he received back while he was in the game - which wasn't long. He allowed five earned runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. He walked two and whiffed three.

He was doomed by run-scoring singles off the bats of Scooter Gennett, Ryan Braun and Adam Lind in the fourth.

Sampson has followed a good start to his major league career with monumental struggles. He has surrendered 14 runs over his last 11 innings pitched to raise his ERA to a gaudy 6.43.


Brewers SP Matt Garza mashed again Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:06 am ET) The consistency that had marked the career of Brewers starter Matt Garza has vanished in 2015. The right-hander who managed an ERA between 3.32 and 3.95 for eight consecutive seasons has been simply awful.

He was simply awful Saturday, allowing seven runs on 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings in a lucky no-decision against Cincinnati. He walked one and struck out two.

Garza managed one shutout inning in the pounding. The big blow was a three-run homer by Jay Bruce in a four-run second.

His 5.56 ERA is the second-worst among qualifying National League starters this year. He has yielded a ridiculous 19 runs and 27 hits over his last 13 innings.


Cubs prospect Javier Baez expected to be promoted soon
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) Joe Maddon has declared that Cubs premier infield prospect Javier Baez is expected to be promoted at early at Tuesday.

"I would say he would be (here) sooner rather than later," Maddon told ESPN. "There's a lot of things he can do to help you win now."

Like, for instance, hit like he has at Triple-A Iowa. Baez is hitting .316 with 13 home runs and .380 on-base percentage at that level.


Angels SP Garrett Richards strikes out nine in no-decision
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/29/2015) Angels starter Garrett Richards was impressive during his start against the Indians on Saturday.

Richards allowed just three runs on seven hits in seven innings. He showed crisp command as he struck out nine batters without allowing a walk in the no-decision.

Richards (12-10) now has a 3.80 ERA in 161 innings this season. 


Athletics RP Drew Pomeranz fans side in snagging Saturday save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) If Athletics left-hander Drew Pomeranz was seeking to solidify what appears to be his hold on the closer role, he certainly stated one heck of a case with his arm Saturday night.

Pomeranz struck out the side in Arizona for his third save. He finished with a flourish, fanning Jarrod Saltalamacchia on three pitches.

He has thrown 4 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings and whiffed seven in that stretch.


Athletics SP Aaron Brooks bounced back from dud to pitch well
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) Athletics right-hander Aaron Brooks was either motivated by his last start or didn't let it affect him at all Saturday in Arizona.

Brooks couldn't have forgotten the Aug. 12 outing in which he allowed eight runs in 1 2/3 innings in Toronto. He certainly rebounded in style by giving up only two runs on eight hits in six innings to keep his team in a game it eventually won. He finished with one walk and four strikeouts.

He blanked the Diamondbacks through four, but an A.J. Pollock single and double play ball resulted in the only two runs scored against him.

His ERA still stands at a rather disturbing 5.47.


Indians SP Corey Kluber strikes out six in no-decision
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/29/2015) Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber recorded six strikeouts during his start against the Angels on Saturday.

Kluber allowed three runs, two of them earned, on five hits in six innings. He gave up three walks and a pair of home runs in the no-decision.

Kluber (8-13) has a 3.41 ERA in 200 1/3 innings this season.


Diamondbacks SP Jhoulys Chacin impressive before demotion
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) The Diamondbacks were trying to catch lightning in a bottle by signing retread starter Jhoulys Chacin and sticking him in their rotation.

Consider lightning caught - at least for now.

Chacin managed his second straight strong performance Saturday against Oakland despite being saddled with a no-decision. He yielded just two runs on five hits in seven innings with two walks and six strikeouts.

He was sent to the minors after the game, per AZCentral.com. But he has certainly made an impression.

Only a Stephen Vogt homer in the second inning prevented him from throwing shutout ball. He allowed only three hits the rest of the way.

Chacin has allowed just four earned runs in 13 1/3 innings since joining the starting staff.
