Yankees closer Andrew Miller turns lights out on Braves


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:47 am ET) Yankees closer Andrew Miller achieved something Saturday he had only achieved once since Aug. 2. That is, he retired the side in order to nail down a save.

His victim was Atlanta, which Miller disposed of quickly in the ninth. He fanned Pedro Ciriaco and Nick Markakis along the way to raise his save total to 28.

Miller has not allowed a run over his last six appearances.


Braves SP Matt Wisler denied run support in Saturday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:42 am ET) Braves starter Matt Wisler needed to be near-perfect Saturday against the Yankees. He was merely good - and that wasn't good enough.

Wisler yielded two runs on four hits in six innings with four walks and four strikeouts. That was two runs too many as his team got blanked during his stint in the game.

The lone runs against him scored on a wild pitch in the first and RBI double by Didi Gregorius in the seventh.

Wisler bounced back quite well from a horrible performance last Sunday, when he allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Cubs.


Yankees SP Luis Severino excellent again in beating Braves


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:37 am ET) Yankees rookie starter Luis Severino continued to improve with every outing Saturday against Atlanta. And he had already been performing quite well.

Severino managed his first shutout effort in evening his record to 2-2. He blanked the Braves on four hits through six innings while walking three and whiffing five.

He allowed two baserunners in the fourth and sixth innings, but escaped both jams.

Severino has given up only seven runs in 29 innings through five starts. He his lowered his ERA to an impressive 2.17.


Pirates closer Mark Melancon earns shaky 43rd save


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:31 am ET) Pirates sizzling closer Mark Melancon was merely mortal Saturday against Colorado, but still nailed down his league-leading 43rd save.

Melancon arrived with a 4-1 lead and promptly allowed a single and two-run homer to Nick Hundley. He then surrendered a single and needed a double-play lineout to finally end the drama.

It marked the first time he has given up more than one run in an appearance since April 21.


Twins SP Mike Pelfrey gives up four runs in short outing


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:27 am ET) Twins starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey's outing against the Astros didn't last very long on Saturday.

Pelfrey allowed four runs on seven hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work. He struck out two batters and gave up a pair of walks.

With the loss, Pelfrey dropped to 6-8 on the year with a 4.04 ERA.


Rockies SP Chris Rusin finds groove too late in loss to Pirates


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:27 am ET) Mediocre was not good enough for Rockies starter Chris Rusin on Saturday night. It rarely is against Pittsburgh these days.

Rusin surrendered three runs on five hits and three walks in six innings in lowering his record to 4-7. He struck out three.

A three-run homer by Aramis Ramirez in the first got Rusin off to a terrible start, but he settled in thereafter. He retired eight of the next nine batters and allowed just two hits the rest of the way.

Rusin rebounded nicely from his last start, when he gave up 11 runs in only two innings against the Mets.


Astros closer Luke Gregerson strikes out two, picks up save


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:23 am ET) Astros closer Luke Gregerson recorded his 25th save of the season on Saturday against the Twins.

The only tally came on a groundout in the third inning.

Happ has been on a tremendous roll with only two runs allowed in 23 innings over his last four starts.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija gives up five runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:00 am ET) White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija allowed five runs in a loss to the Mariners on Saturday.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen shuts down Cubs for 27th save


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:58 am ET) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen remained on a save and strikeout tear Saturday. He not only earned his 27th save by shutting down the Cubs in the ninth, but managed another strikeout, giving him at least one in each of his last nine appearances.

Jansen has fanned 22 over his last 14 innings.


Terrible sixth inning dooms Cubs SP Jon Lester to defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:53 am ET) Cubs starter Jon Lester was rolling merrily along Saturday night against the host Dodgers. Then suddenly he stopped rolling and started skidding.

Lester blew a 2-1 lead by allowing four runs in the seventh inning without retiring a batter. He finished having allowed eight hits with no walks and seven strikeouts in lowering his record to 8-10.

He was doomed by three singles and a double that knocked him out of the game. The double by Jose Peraza and single by Andre Ethier plated three runs.

The poor effort was his second in the last three starts. Lester now owns a 3.59 ERA on the year.


Mariners RP Tom Wilhelmsen notches sixth save


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:46 am ET) Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen recorded his sixth save of the season during his team's win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Wilhemsen finished the final 1 1/3 innings of the 7-6 victory. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two batters.


Dodgers SP Mat Latos fails to go five in no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:46 am ET) If Dodgers starter Mat Latos didn't require 86 pitches to get through 4 2/3 innings Saturday against the Cubs, he might have stuck around long enough for a few runs to get him a win.

As it was, he had to accept a a no-decision after allowing two runs on four hits with three walks and five strikeouts.

The only runs that scored against Latos came via a sacrifice fly in the third inning and passed ball in the fifth. But he retired the Cubs in order only once and had to work his way out of jams in the other innings.

Latos has struggled since arriving in Los Angeles, particularly over his last three starts, when he has given up 12 runs in 17 1/3 innings. He has not won a decision since July 21.


Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma earns sixth win of the season


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:45 am ET) Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma did just enough during his start against the White Sox on Saturday to earn a victory.

Iwakuma allowed two runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings of work. He struck out six batters and allowed four walks.

With the win, Iwakuma improved to 6-3 on the year with a 4.22 ERA.


Diamondbacks reward bombed-out P Allen Webster with start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:35 am ET) The Diamondbacks are set to promote Allen Webster to start the series finale Sunday in Oakland. They have sent down Saturday starter Jhoulys Chacin, who will soon be back up as well.

The 25-year-old Webster gets the call despite being a disaster at Triple-A Reno. He has allowed a whopping 109 hits in 71 innings with an 8.37 ERA. Opposing hitters are batting .354 against him.


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.
