Yankees claim Robertson on waivers; ChiSox unlikely to deal him
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:42 am ET) The Yankees have put in a waiver claim for White Sox closer David Robertson, according to CBS Sports Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The Yankees will find out Monday if they have a chance to reacquire their former closer, but as of Sunday night it appeared Robertson was unlikely to be dealt anywhere, per Heyman.


Twins CF Aaron Hicks records hit, RBI in rehab game
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:23 am ET) Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks went 1 for 5 with a single and a RBI in a Triple-A rehab game on Sunday.

Hicks is on the 15-day disabled list because of a hamstring injury.


Cubs SP Jake Arrieta tosses no-hitter against Dodgers
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/30/2015) Cubs starter Jake Arrieta was simply dominant during his start against the Dodgers on Sunday, as he recorded baseball's sixth no-hitter this season.

Arrieta struck out 12 batters, and his only base runners came on an error and a single walk. Other than that, he was as close to perfect as they come.

With the stellar performance, Arrieta improved to 17-6 on the season with an impressive 2.11 ERA.


Dodgers SP Alex Wood no match for Arrieta in strong effort
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood became a footnote in history Sunday night. He was the losing pitcher in a no-hitter.

Wood allowed two runs on six hits in six innings to the Cubs, but simply couldn't keep up with counterpart Jake Arrieta. Wood walked one and struck out seven. It marked the first time he walked fewer than two betters since July 9.

His only major mistake wound up over the fence, courtesy of Kris Bryant, who slugged a two-run homer in the first inning. Wood threw 72 pitches in the first three innings before settling down and making it through the next three.

His ERA now sits at 3.67.


Dodgers INF Enrique Hernandez out with apparent ankle issue
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) Dodgers infielder Enrique Hernandez appeared to roll his ankle trying to beat out a ground ball in the eighth inning of the game Sunday night against the Cubs. He was replaced by Justin Turner.

The team has yet to determine the severity of the potential injury.


Diamondbacks closer Brad Ziegler pounded by Athletics
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) Diamondbacks closer Brad Ziegler was due for a dud. And duds often occur in non-save situations.

Ziegler arrived in a tie game Sunday against Oakland and left with a 7-4 deficit. He gave up three runs on six hits in just one inning.

He loaded the bases in the 10th, but slithered out of the jam with a double play and groundout. He had no such fortune in the 11th, when three two-out singles and a hit-by-pitch resulted in his second loss of the season.

His ERA still sits at a fine 1.88.


Athletics SP Jesse Chavez rebounds Sunday from poor effort
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) The Jekyll-Hyde run of Athletics starter Jesse Chavez continued Sunday when he followed a terrible performance with a strong one in a no-decision against host Arizona.

Chavez yielded just one earned run on eight hits in five innings with one walk and six strikeouts.

One problem is that it took him 95 pitches to get through five. Another is that he couldn't recover from a two-out error in the second, giving up singles to Ender Inciarte and Chris Owings that resulted in two unearned runs.

Chavez has just three quality starts in his last eight outings.


Diamondbacks SP Allen Webster surprises in Sunday start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) Diamondbacks starter Allen Webster provided more evidence Sunday that baseball is unpredictable.

Webster arrived in Arizona after compiling an 8.37 ERA with 109 hits allowed in 71 innings in the minors. But he held Oakland to just one earned run on six hits in five innings with one walk and two strikeouts.

The right-hander, who was saddled with an almost-as-bad 6.86 ERA in the majors this season, yielded two unearned runs on an error and Josh Reddick triple in the third. A Stephen Vogt solo homer in the fourth provided the only earned tally.


Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist bounces back for save
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/30/2015) After taking the loss Friday, Cardinals reliever Kevin Siegrist bounced back to finish off Sunday's victory over the Giants to earn his sixth save of the year. 

With normal closer Trevor Rosenthal on paternity leave, Siegrist came in during a two-run game in the ninth inning and didn't allow a hit, striking out two batters. He allowed two hits and one run in 1/3 inning in Friday's loss. 

Siegrist has been a jack-of-all-trades for the Cards this season, with a 5-1 record and 24 holds to go along with the six saves. 


Giants OF Marlon Byrd has big day on 38th birthday
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/30/2015) Giants outfielder Marlon Byrd knows how to celebrate, as the veteran went 3-for-4 with four RBIs on Sunday, his 38th birthday. 

Byrd racked up two doubles and a triple as he single-handedly tried to keep the Giants in a game they would lose 7-5. Byrd now has 56 RBIs on the season, 14 of which have been tallied since he was acquired from the Reds on Aug. 20.
