Rafael Soriano hangs on Monday for 31st save


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano delivered a shaky save Monday, giving up one earned run on two hits and one walk in one inning while striking out two in his team's 6-4 win over the Dodgers.

Soriano handled the first two batters of the ninth inning before issuing a walk, and after the runner took second base, he came around to score on a single. The closer surrendered another single to bring the potential winning run to the plate, but he struck out Dodgers prospect Joc Pederson to end the game. Soriano owns a 2.63 ERA and 52:17 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings.


Josh Edgin to have elbow examined Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Mets pitcher Josh Edgin will have his elbow examined by team doctors Tuesday after a platelet-rich plasma injection failed to relieve the bone spurs and tendinitis in the elbow, the New York Daily News reports.

"We’ll have to see with the doctors," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "The shot really didn’t help him. When the shot didn’t help very much, he was going to start taking his medicine, hold off until the doctors take a look at it."

Edgin has been sidelined since Aug. 23 with the injury. He owns a 1.40 ERA and 25:6 K:BB ratio in 25 2/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Holland's save was his first since Aug. 22, and he's been used in nonsave situations in each of his last four outings. Monday's save makes it three straight days and five of six days in which he's pitched, so Holland is likely to be unavailable Tuesday. He owns a 1.63 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 78:18 K:BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings.

The team will need to clear two 40-man roster spots for the pitchers. Villar hit .200/.255/.342 with six home runs, 22 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 225 at-bats with Houston before being sent to the minors.


Sergio Romo stuck with walkoff loss Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Giants pitcher Sergio Romo was victimized by three singles in two-thirds of an inning to take a walkoff 10-9 loss against the Rockies Monday.

Romo (5-4) surrendered a single to the leadoff batter in the bottom of the ninth, and after a sacrifice sent the runner to second base, a popout to the catcher put Romo one out away from sending the game into extra innings. He couldn't come through, allowing back-to-back singles to end the game. Romo owns a 4.09 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 52:12 K:BB ratio in 50 2/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins blew a save opportunity Monday, allowing two earned runs on three hits in one inning while striking out one, but his offense picked him up and handed him the win in the team's 10-9 victory over the Giants.

Hawkins (3-2) surrendered a double and a single to bring a run home, and after the potential tying run advanced to second on a wild pitch, the runner came home on a single with still no outs in the inning. The closer buckled down to pick up outs against the next three batters. Hawkins owns a 3.00 ERA and 31:12 K:BB ratio in 48 innings.


Kevin Quackenbush strikes out side in second save


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Padres pitcher Kevin Quackenbush struck out all three batters he faced Monday to earn his second save in his team's 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Quackenbush is serving as the closer as Joaquin Benoit deals with shoulder issues, and he couldn't have done better with the job Monday. Quackenbush owns a 2.64 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 46:16 K:BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Cardinals pitcher Seth Maness retired the only batter he faced Monday, tossing two-thirds of a scoreless inning to pick up the win in his team's 5-4 victory over the Pirates.

Maness (6-3) entered the game with a man on first but watched the runner get caught attempting to steal second base. He then recorded a groundball out to end the seventh inning before the offense took the lead in the next frame. Maness owns a 3.03 ERA and 46:10 K:BB ratio in 68 1/3 innings.

Though Familia (2-4) only had one run marked as "earned," all three runs can be laid at his feet, as the reliever made two throwing errors on sacrifices and also uncorked a run-scoring wild pitch. He owns a 2.13 ERA and 57:30 K:BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
