Braves CF Cameron Maybin homers, steals bag on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:39 pm ET) Braves center fielder Cameron Maybin fell a triple short of the cycle on Saturday, as he went 3 for 5 with a double, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in the 9-5 win over the Phillies.

Maybin, who also stole his 15th bag of the season, knocked his seventh home run of the season in the second inning. His solo shot gave the Braves an early 5-0 lead. 

Maybin has managed to stay hot at the plate recently, as he's hitting .326 with two home runs over his last 10 starts.


Twins RP Ryan Pressly sustains shoulder strain Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:36 pm ET) Twins reliever Ryan Pressly was removed from the game Saturday night in Kansas City with a right shoulder strain, MLB.com has reported.

He pitched one shutout inning and threw 11 of 13 pitches for strikes before going down.


Braves' Alex Wood gives up four runs, gets sixth win on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:34 pm ET) Braves left-hander Alex Wood was the beneficary of a nine-run explosion by his offense on the Fourth of July. Wood gave up four runs on 10 hits over six innings, but came away with the win in the 9-5 victory over the Phillies.

Wood (6-5, 3.34 ERA) walked two and struck out four. He gave up a three-run home run to Darin Ruf in the fifth inning, but the Braves already had nine runs on the board at that point.

This is the first time Wood has allowed more than three runs since he allowed four on June 12. 


Marlins set to activate 1B Michael Morse
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:31 pm ET) Marlins first baseman Michael Morse, who has been sidelined for seven weeks with finger and back issues, will finally come off the disabled list in time for the Sunday game against the host Cubs, per MLB.com.

Morse will return on a 2-for-22 slide and a weak .211/.268/.289 slash line.


Phillies SP Kevin Correia lit up for nine runs on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:30 pm ET) Phillies right-hander Kevin Correia got lit up like the Fourth of July in his start against the Braves, as he got blasted for nine runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings on Saturday. Correia gave up four runs in the very first inning.

Then he allowed a solo home run to Cameron Maybin in the second, before giving up four more runs in the fourth.

Correia's ERA rose from 3.60 to 6.56 after Saturday's horrid outing. 


Cubs slugger Kris Bryant slams pair in first two innings Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:23 pm ET) After two innings Saturday night, Cubs slugger Kris Bryant was on pace to hit eight home runs and drive in 24 against shell-shocked Miami.

OK, that wasn't going to happen. But Bryant certainly destroyed the Marlins with his bat, pretty much putting it away well before darkness fell in Chicago.

Bryant opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first, then blasted a grand slam in the second to give him 12 home runs and 49 RBI on the year. The cherry on top is that he now has a five-game hitting streak.

In the process he became the first Cubs rookie to hit two grand slams in a season since Billy Williams in 1961.


Marlins SP Jarred Cosart clobbered, then demoted
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:15 pm ET) Marlins right-hander Jarred Cosart might remember his outing Saturday at Wrigley Field for quite some time - and for all the wrong reasons.

His first start since returning from a hand injury was a disaster. He was mashed for seven earned runs on four hits and three walks in 1 2/3 innings before his merciful removal. When the dust had cleared, his ERA had soared to a season-high 5.36.

And after the game, he was demoted to Triple-A New Orleans.

Cosart allowed a two-run homer to Kris Bryant in the first inning and never recovered. Two walks and two singles in the third led to a grand slam by Bryant and knocked him out of the game.

He has allowed 20 earned runs in his last 20 innings pitched.


Comeback Kid Clayton Richard shines for Cubs in Saturday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:06 pm ET) Clayton Richard hasn't vaulted himself into the Comeback Player of the Year conversation, but he certainly took an encouraging step forward Saturday night against Miami.

Richard pitched well in his first start with the Cubs, yielding two runs on eight hits with one walk and four strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings to earn the victory. It marked his first major league start since June 2013.

He allowed at least one baserunner in every inning but the sixth, yet continued to pitch out of jams. He did retire the last six batters he faced.


Brewers' Carlos Gomez leaves Saturday's game with wrist contusion
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:01 pm ET) Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez left Saturday's ballgame against the Reds after being hit by a pitch in the fifth inning. Gomez was hit on the left wrist, and was diagnosed with a wrist contusion. He underwent X-rays which came back negative, and he is considered day-to-day.

His status for Sunday's series finale in Cincinnati is in question. 


Twins sign aging RP Scott Atchison to minor-league deal
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:07 pm ET) Veteran right-hander Scott Atchison has signed a minor league deal with the Twins, per SB Nation.

The 39-year-old Atchison performed well for Cleveland last season and started out the same this year before a major collapse. He allowed 15 earned runs on 22 hits in his last 13 2/3 innings out of the bullpen and was released.
