Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez solid on Monday, gets no-decision
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:56 pm ET) Left-hander Gio Gonzalez tossed a quality start on Monday, but the Nationals fell to the Cardinals 8-5. Gonzalez allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out four, throwing 55 of his 91 pitches for strikes.

All three runs to score against Gonzalez came in the fourth inning on a trio of RBI singles. Despite leaving the game with the Nationals trailing 3-2, Gonzalez escaped with a no-decision after the Nationals rallied to tie the game. The Cardinals put on a rally of their own, en route to the 8-5 final.

This was a better outing for Gonzalez, who had allowed at least four runs in each of his previous three starts. Still, he struggled through the month of August, going 1-3 with a 5.46 ERA in six outings.


Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal back at it, gets 42nd save Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:50 pm ET) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal returned from the paternity list on Monday, and was immediately thrown back into the fire. The right-hander worked a scoreless ninth inning against the Nationals, earning his 42nd save of the season. It wasn't without a little bit of drama, however.

Rosenthal started the ninth by allowing the first two batters to reach base safely. But he worked out of the jam by getting Clint Robinson swinging to end the game, as the Cardinals went on to win 8-5.


Cardinals' John Lackey sees bullpen waste his fine effort Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:47 pm ET) Cardinals starter John Lackey was excellent in his outing against the Nationals on Monday. The right-hander allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits over six solid innings. He walked four and struck out eight, throwing 63 of his 105 pitches for strikes.

Despite the fine outing, Lackey was left with a no-decision, as the Cardinals' bullpen coughed up the lead. The Cardinals would rally back, however, as they wound up with the 8-5 victory.

Lackey, who lowered his season ERA to 2.87 on Monday, was excellent in the month of August. In six starts, he went 2-2 with a 3.21 ERA.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:46 pm ET) Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman earned his 26th save of the season during Monday's 13-6 win over the Cubs.

Chapman allowed a solo home run over 1 2/3 innings to pick up the save. His ERA is now 1.82.


Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks receives no-decision in Monday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:43 pm ET) Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks pitched well enough to win during Monday's loss to the Reds, but the bullpen could not hold the lead.

Hendricks allowed three runs on five hits over five innings of work. He also struck out four and walked three.

Hendricks is winless in his last four starts and has no quality outings.


Mariners' Mark Trumbo slugs two homers in losing effort Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:40 pm ET) Mariners first baseman Mark Trumbo did his best to give his club a win on Monday, as he went 2 for 4 with a pair of home runs. It wasn't enough however, as the Mariners lost to the Astros by the score of 8-3.

Trumbo blasted a solo shot in the second inning to tie the game a 1-1. He then added a two-run shot in the ninth inning. Those were the only runs the Mariners would muster up however.

The pair of big flies give Trumbo a total of 19 on the season. It was just his second multi-homer game of the season, and his first since May 12 when he was with the Diamondbacks. 


Reds SP Michael Lorenzen takes no-decision in Monday's win
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:39 pm ET) Reds pitcher Michael Lorenzen could not get out of the fifth inning during Monday's 13-6 win over the Cubs and received a no-decision as a result.

Lorenzen allowed five runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings. He also struck out five and walked one. His ERA is now 5.66.

Lorenzen's last win came on June 21.


Astros' Carlos Correa cranks home run in return to lineup Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:37 pm ET) After missing five games with a hamstring injury, Astros rookie shortstop Carlos Correa returned with a bang. The young phenom went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run, as the Astros defeated the Mariners 8-3 on Monday.

Correa's home run gives him 16 on the year. According to Elias, Correa's 16 dingers are the second-most ever by a shortstop before his 21st birthday--Alex Rodriguez had 26. 


Mariners' Vidal Nuno serves up three homers in loss to Astros
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:33 pm ET) Mariners starter Vidal Nuno got roughed up a bit by the Astros on Monday. Nuno allowed five runs on seven hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out two, en route to the 8-3 loss.

Nuno (0-3, 3.32 ERA) had trouble keeping the ball in the park in this one. He gave up a run in the first inning. And after the Mariners tied the game in the second, Nuno allowed fourth-inning solo home runs to Jed Lowrie and Hank Conger. He also served up a two-run shot to Carlos Correa in the fifth.

Nuno pitched an inning of relief on Wednesday, and thus hadn't started a game since August 22. In five August starts, Nuno went 0-2 with a 5.27 ERA.
