Curtis Granderson slugs homer, ends hitless streak


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson went 2 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 5-2 loss to the Brewers Saturday.

Granderson entered the game 0 for 16 in his last four outings before coming up big Saturday, scoring the team's only two runs and hitting his first home run since July 8. He owns a .232/.337/.412 line with 15 home runs, 44 RBI and eight stolen bases in 354 at-bats.


Yasiel Puig could remain in center field regularly


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig could become a regular starter in center field, MLB.com reports, allowing Matt Kemp to play right field with Carl Crawford in left field.

"I think it's the best combination for the guys we have now," manager Don Mattingly said Saturday. "There's a little more stability in center instead of a platoon if this works out. Andre [Ethier] can play center, right and left. Carl's in left and Scott [Van Slyke] can play the corners or give Adrian [Gonzalez] a day at first. It's kind of the best right now."

Puig made his first start of the season in center field Friday after playing a few innings at the position Wednesday, and he was back in center Saturday. He has hit .315/.402/.543 with 12 home runs, 54 RBI and seven stolen bases in 352 at-bats.

Stubbs has hit .302/.338/.517 with 11 home runs, 29 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 242 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Nationals outfielder Denard Span continued his absurdly hot hitting Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Reds.

Span put together his second four-hit game in a row Friday, as he went 4 for 5 at the top of the lineup. Span scored once and drove in one run, his second game in a row with an RBI as well.

Yasiel Puig rips out three triples in win over Giants


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig came up with a historical performance at the plate in his first game back from injury against the Giants in San Francisco.

Puig tripled in the first, doubled in the third, tripled in a run in the fifth and tripled again in the sixth. He finished 4 for 5 with two runs scored and two RBI in an 8-1 victory.

Puig’s three triples are the most by a Dodger since Jimmy Sheckard in 1901 for Brooklyn. He also became the first player in team history to record at least two triples and a double in a game since Sandy Amoros in 1956. His 11 total bases were the most by any Dodger without ever hitting a home run.
