Mets 1B Lucas Duda crushes three solo home runs on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:43 pm ET) First baseman Lucas Duda was responsible for all the Mets' offense in the 7-3 loss to the Padres on Wednesday. Duda busted out his first career three-homer game, blasting a trio of solo bombs over the right-field wall.

Duda is locked in at the plate right now, as he has gone deep seven times in his last four games.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8:53 pm ET) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison exited Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks in the seventh inning due to an injured thumb. Morrison was 0 for 3 with a strikeout before being lifted for a defensive replacement.

Dodgers-Marlins trade involving Mat Latos, Michael Morse on hold


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:20 pm ET) The trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse from the Marlins to the Dodgers appears to be on hold. Both Latos and Morse are in uniform at Marlins ballpark on Wednesday.

The deal, which would send three minor-leaguers back to the Marlins, was supposedly agreed to earlier on Wednesday. But neither team has commented on the trade, and it is not exactly known what is causing the delay.


Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo delivers two-run homer in win Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The homer, Rizzo's 17th of the year, was his only hit of the afternoon. The young star has been struggling at the plate over the last few weeks, as he's hitting just .132 with two RBI over his past 10 games. His season average has dropped from .294 to .279 over that stretch.


Blue Jays' Edwin Encarnacion scratched from lineup on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Dodgers snag SP Mat Latos, 1B Mike Morse from Marlins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:38 am ET) The Dodgers have acquired hot pitcher Mat Latos and first baseman Mike Morse from the Marlins for prospects that include at least one competitive balance pick, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed.

The Marlins will receive three minor leaguers, per the Miami Herald.

Latos has managed four consecutive quality starts in which he has allowed just six runs in 26 innings to lower his ERA from 5.49 to 4.48.

Morse lost his starting job to Justin Bour early in the year before losing time to injury. He has played sparingly since returning and owns a meager slash line on the year of .214/.277/.314.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:24 am ET) Astros designated hitter Chris Carter smacked a two-run home run in Tuesday's 10-5 win over the Angels. Carter's two-run shot trimmed the Angels' lead to 4-3, and the Angels would not be able to rally back, as Astros downed the Halos in this one.

The home run, his 17th of the year, was Carter's only hit of the game. The slugger has homered twice in his last five games.

His two-run home run gave the Braves an early 2-0 lead in the first inning, but it wouldn't last, as the Orioles scored three in the bottom half en route to their victory.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Twins first baseman Joe Mauer went 1 for 4 with a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to Pittsburgh.

Orioles' Chris Davis homers twice, drives in five in 7-3 win Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Right fielder Chris Davis gave the Orioles all the offense they would need in the 7-3 win over the Braves on Tuesday. Davis launched a three-run home run in the bottom of the first, and followed that up with a two-run blast in the second.

Davis would finish the game 2 for 4 with five RBI and two runs scored. The five RBI represent a season-high for Davis, who is batting .316 with five home runs and 12 RBI over his past 10 games.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu had a big night at the plate in Tuesday's 9-4 win over the Red Sox. Abreu went 3 for 5 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs scored. 

Abreu launched a two-run home run, his 16th longball of the season, in the sixth inning to put Chicago up by five. The play was originally ruled a catch, but Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts tumbled over the short right-field wall, dropping the ball in the bullpen. After a review, the call was overturned, and Abreu was awarded the home run.

Abreu also supplied an RBI double in the eighth inning. He is hitting .341 with two home runs and 10 RBI over his past 10 games.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Reds first baseman Joey Votto provided the only significant offense of the game in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals. Votto launched a three-run home run in the sixth inning off Jaime Garcia to break a scoreless tie.

Votto reached base safely in all four plate-appearances on Tuesday, going 3 for 3 with a walk. He drove in three runs and scored two, recording his 19th home run and his 19th double of the season. 

Votto has been on fire at the plate recently, batting a ridiculous .595 with three homers and eight RBI over his past 11 games. Perhaps just as impressive is the fact that he has struck out just once--compared to 12 walks--in those 11 contests.
