Phillies 2B Chase Utley (ankle) to start rehab assignment Sunday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:11 pm ET) Injured Phillies second baseman Chase Utley will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday. 

Utley has been out of action since the end of June due to right ankle inflammation. It is not known how many rehab games Utley will require before being activated from the 15-day disabled list.


Mariners waste strong start from Mike Montgomery on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:08 pm ET) Mariners rookie starter Mike Montgomery posted a strong outing against the Twins on Saturday. The young left-hander allowed just one run on four hits over six solid innings. He walked two and struck out six, but was left with a no-decision in the 3-2 loss.

Montgomery left the game leading 2-1, but the bullpen coughed up the lead in the bottom of the ninth, making this the fourth straight start without a win for Montgomery.

Montgomery has been rather inconsistent over his last handful of starts, but he has been better his last two times out. He has allowed a total of three runs in 12 2/3 innings in those pair of outings.


White Sox SP John Danks wins in sloppy outing
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(11:03 pm ET) White Sox starting pitcher John Danks wasn't as crisp as he would have liked during his start against the Yankees on Saturday, but he still came out on top.

Danks allowed just one run on three hits in 5 2/3 inning, but he tied a season-high with four walks. The walks didn't get him into trouble because he also recorded eight strikeouts.

With the win, Danks improved to 6-8 on the year. He has a 4.80 ERA in 114 1/3 innings this season.


Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo homers in fourth straight day Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:03 pm ET) Has there been a hotter hitter over the last four days than Anthony Rizzo? The Cubs' star first baseman went 2 for 4 in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Brewers. He slugged a three-run home run, his fourth home run in four days.

Rizzo has been on fire in those four days, batting a ridiculous .533 with the four homers and nine RBI in that stretch. 


Brewers' Matt Garza gives up three-run HR in loss on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:00 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Matt Garza posted a quality start on Saturday, but lost for the fifth time in his last seven outings in the 4-2 defeat to the Cubs. Garza allowed three runs on four hits over six innings of work. He walked four and struck out five, throwing 70 of his 107 pitches for strikes.

Garza (5-12, 5.17 ERA) had trouble with his command in this one, but was able to limit the damage against him. The one mistake he made came on a three-run home run by the red-hot Anthony Rizzo, accounting for all three runs against Garza.

Despite the fairly decent outing on Saturday, Garza has really been struggling this year. Over his past six starts, the veteran right-hander is 1-4 with a 5.40 ERA.


Cubs RP Tommy Hunter gets two-out save in team debut
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:54 pm ET) New Cubs reliever Tommy Hunter made his team debut on Saturday, and recorded a two-out save in the 4-2 win over the Brewers. The save was the first of the season for Hunter, who was acquired from the Orioles on Friday.

Hunter was summoned with one out in the ninth when Jason Motte put a runner on second. Hunter allowed that run to score on an RBI groundout, and then retired the final batter to close out the game.

It was Hunter's first save since May 2014, when he recorded 11 saves for the Orioles. 


Pirates SP Gerrit Cole comes up short in loss to Reds
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(10:51 pm ET) Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole didn't have enough to come up with a win during his start against the Reds on Saturday.

Cole tossed five innings, giving up three runs on seven hits. When he had his pitches going, he flashed dominance -- he recorded eight strike outs to just one walk.

With the loss, the All-Star falls to 14-5 on the season with a 2.36 ERA.


Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks shuts down Brewers bats for fifth win
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:50 pm ET) Cubs young right-hander Kyle Hendricks was in fine form in his outing against the Brewers on Saturday. Hendricks allowed one run on four hits over seven-plus innings in the 4-2 victory. He walked two and struck out six, throwing 68 of his 100 pitches for strikes.

Hendricks (5-5, 3.67 ERA) was on top of his game in this one, allowing his only run in the fourth inning, with his team already leading by four runs. 

This was a solid bounceback effort for Hendricks, who had allowed nine runs in 11 innings over his previous two starts. 


Reds closer Aroldis Chapman notches 22nd save of the season
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(10:45 pm ET) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman wasn't as crisp as we have become accustomed to on Saturday against the Pirates, but he still managed to pick up his 22nd save of the season.

Despite allowing three hits, a walk and a run, Chapman struck out two batters and closed out his team's 4-3 win over Pittsburgh. He now has a 1.81 ERA in 44 2/3 innings this season.


Reds SP Raisel Iglesias strikes out five in win over Pirates
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(10:43 pm ET) Reds starting pitcher Raisel Iglesias enjoyed a pretty solid start against the Pirates on Saturday.

Iglesias limited his mistakes during the 6 2/3 innings he faced off against Pittsburgh, and it paid off as he picked up his second win of the season. He allowed two runs on four hits, two walks and a home run, but he did manage to strike out five batters.

With the win, Iglesias improved to 2-3 on the year with a 5.13 ERA.
