Player News
Mets SS Ruben Tejada circles bases on inside-the-park homer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:03 pm ET) Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada has just 10 lifetime home runs. Nine have left the yard. The one that didn't helped his team beat Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

His inside-the-park sprint around the bases in the second inning gave New York a 3-0 lead and jump-started what turned out to be a rout.

Tejada also drove in runs with a single and groundout later in the game.


Phillies rookie SP Aaron Nola blasted Wednesday by Mets
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:59 pm ET) Phillies starter Aaron Nola hadn't suffered through a really rotten outing since joining the team in late July. But he has now.

Nola was rocked for six runs on nine hits in just four innings against the host Mets. He walked none and fanned four.

Back-to-back three-run frames set him back. A double by Kelly Johnson and inside-the-park homer by Ruben Tehada plated three in the second, then a double by Daniel Murphy and dinger by Michael Conforto added three in the third.

The dud sent his ERA soaring from 3.26 to 4.02.


Mets SP Matt Harvey good enough to earn 12th victory
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:51 pm ET) Mets super starter Matt Harvey wasn't his typical dominant self Wednesday against visiting Philadelphia. But with nine runs of support, he didn't need to be.

Harvey gave up four runs on nine hits in 6 1/3 innings with one walk and nine strikeouts.

He faced only two batters over the minimum in cruising through the first three innings, but three singles and two doubles in the fourth scored three. Harvey had not allowed three runs in any game - let alone one inning - over his previous eight starts.

A Darnell Sweeney home run in the seventh placed the last run on his ledger.


Inconsistent Indians SP Trevor Bauer battered by Blue Jays
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:31 pm ET) Indians enigmatic starter Trevor Bauer is either really good or really bad. He was really bad in Toronto on Wednesday night. The result was predictable.

Bauer surrendered five runs on six hits in just 1 1/3 innings. He walked one and whiffed two.

He was greeted by RBI singles from Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki before escaping further trouble in the first. Two singles and a two-run double by Donaldson in the second knocked him out of the game.

Bauer was coming off successive performances in which he allowed just two runs in 14 1/3 innings.


Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey shackles Indians on four hits
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:22 pm ET) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey had the old knuckleball knuckling Wednesday against visiting Cleveland. The result was his first complete-game victory of the season.

Dickey allowed just one run on four hits with no walks and six strikeouts. He retired the first nine batters he faced before giving up three singles in the fourth inning, including one by Carlos Santana that drove in the lone run.

The right-hander had been struggling a bit since a strong run in July and early August, but the outing against the Indians puts him back on track. It also raised his record to 10-10 and lowered his ERA to 4.09.


Mariners rehabbing P James Paxton removed from Triple-A start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:15 pm ET) Mariners left-hander James Paxton was considered to be one healthy rehab start away from returning to the big-league mound. But a monkey wrench might have been thrown into those plans.

Paxton was removed in the fourth inning of his outing Wednesday for Triple-A Tacoma. He left the mound with the trainer looking at a finger on his pitching hand. He had been sidelined for more than three months with a finger injury.

It remains to be seen if what appears to be a setback will prevent him from joining the Mariners in the near future.


Glute tightness has Nationals CF Bryce Harper out of game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:00 pm ET) What is being described as left glute tightness has prompted the removal of Nationals slugger Bryce Harper from the Wednesday game in St. Louis, according to MLB.com.

Harper was replaced in the field at the bottom of the fourth inning. The team has yet to reveal the seriousness of the issue or a timetable for his return to action.


Royals CF Lorenzo Cain out after taking foul ball off calf
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:56 pm ET) Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain was taken out of a lopsided game Wednesday against Detroit after fouling a ball off his calf in the fourth inning.

The team has stated that he was removed only as a precaution and that the issue does not appear to be serious.

Cain certainly made an impact before he left with a home run and double - his first extra-base hits in the last 15 games.


Nationals CF Bryce Harper removed from Wednesday game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:50 pm ET) Nationals slugger Bryce Harper was pulled from the game Wednesday night in St. Louis for reasons not yet revealed.

Harper did not run out a popout leading off the fourth and was replaced in the bottom of the inning, but it remains to be seen if that was the motivation for Matt Williams to take him out.


Shelved Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman lights-out in rehab start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:32 pm ET) The hope that Marcus Stroman can return to full health in time to pitch for the Blue Jays this season was strengthened by his rehab effort Wednesday for Class A Lansing.

Stroman tossed 4 2/3 innings of no-hit ball against Great Lakes. He walked one, fanned seven, and threw 44 of his 69 pitches for strikes.

The right-hander has been sidelined all year after undergoing knee surgery.
