Sam Haggerty went 1-for-3 and drove in three runs on Saturday, leading the Mariners to a 5-1 victory over the visiting Athletics.

Oct 01   9:20 PM

There was no celebration hangover for the Mariners in this one -- despite the fact that many of their regulars got the day off after clinching a playoff berth on Friday night. Haggerty smacked a two-run single off of Adam Oller in the first inning that extended the M's early advantage to 3-0. He then tacked on a sacrifice fly in the eighth to cap off the scoring in the ballgame. On the season, the 28-year-old is now hitting .253/.327/.402 with five long balls, 23 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 196 plate appearances.

Edward Cabrera aggravated his right ankle in the third inning of Saturday's game against the Brewers.

Oct 01   8:43 PM

Cabrera was mowing down the Brewers Saturday before aggravating an ankle injury. With the Marlins out of the playoff race, this could be the last time he pitches this year. He will finish the year with a 3.01 ERA and 75/33 K/BB ratio over 71 2/3 innings. He should be a key piece of the Marlins rotation during the 2023 regular season.

Brandon Hughes struck out one for a quick save against the Reds on Saturday.

Oct 01   8:06 PM

Hughes entered after Manuel Rodriguez walked Jake Fraley in the top of the ninth inning Saturday. The 26-year-old quickly struck out Alejo Lopez to earn his eighth save of the year. The rookie has performed well and has a 3.02 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 68/22 K/BB ratio over 55 appearances going into the final handful of games.

Thairo Estrada went 1-for-4, drove in a run and swiped a pair of bases as the Giants fell to the Diamondbacks on Saturday afternoon.

Oct 01   7:49 PM

Estrada had a two-out single in the opening inning and stole second base, but the Giants were unable to cash him in.  He then drove in the game's first run with a fielder's choice in the third inning. He proceeded to swipe second base but wound up getting stranded there again. On the season, the 26-year-old is now hitting .264/.324/.408 with 14 home runs, 62 RBI and 21 stolen bases on the season.

Jordan Luplow went 3-for-4 and scored a run as the Diamondbacks triumphed over the Giants on Saturday afternoon in San Francisco.

Oct 01   7:49 PM

Luplow led off the seventh inning with an infield single -- his third single of the ballgame -- then came around to score on a run-scoring double off the bat of Christian Walker. Even with the three-hit effort, the 28-year-old outfielder is still hitting just .175/.275/.365 with 11 homers, 28 RBI and five stolen bases on the season.

Christian Walker went 3-for-5 with a double, triple, RBI and two runs scored on Saturday afternoon as the Diamondbacks dispatched of the Giants.

Walker led off the fourth inning by smacking the first pitch he saw from Jakob Junis for an opposite-field triple. He then scored the Diamondbacks first run on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Josh Rojas. Walker then delivered a run-scoring double off of Jarlin Garcia in the seventh inning and dashed home on an RBI single by Rojas. With his three-hit attack, the 31-year-old slugger is now slashing .238/.325/.478 with 36 home runs, 93 RBI and one swipe on the year.

Sergio Alcantara went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and drove in four runs on Saturday as the Diamondbacks topped the Giants 8-4 in San Francisco.

Oct 01   7:49 PM

The light-hitting shortstop smacked a go-ahead two-run double off Jakob Junis in the fourth inning, giving the Diamondbacks a lead that they would never relinquish. He added another two-run double as part of a five-run uprising in the seventh inning that put the game out of reach. Even with the strong showing at the plate though, Alcantara is hitting a paltry .224/.266/.354 with five homers and 26 RBI over 209 plate appearances between the Diamondbacks and Padres on the season.

Jakob Junis struggled in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Saturday afternoon, giving up four runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings of work.

Oct 01   7:49 PM

The right-hander walked two and punched out four on the day. After dominating the Diamondbacks in a bulk role his last time out, it was much tougher sledding for Junis in this one. He allowed a three runs in the fourth inning on a two-run double by Sergio Alcantara and a sacrifice fly by Josh Rojas. He then allowed a leadoff single before exiting in the seventh, and that runner came around to score as well. Junis generated just four swings and misses on 83 pitches in the game, posting an underwhelming CSW of only 23 percent. The 30-year-old hurler finishes the 2022 campaign with a 5-7 record, 4.42 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 98/25 K/BB ratio over 112 innings in 23 appearances (17 starts). He'll be arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter.

Wade Miley threw two scoreless innings to lead the Cubs to victory Saturday.

Oct 01   7:49 PM

Miley made his return to the Cubs after he was removed from a start last weekend with oblique tightness. He entered after the sixth inning and threw 12 pitches across two innings of work, stuck out none but also allowed no hits. This could be the 35-year-old's last outing of the year. If so, he will finish with a 3.16 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 28/14 K/Bb ratio across 37 innings.

Rafael Devers goes 2-for-4 in a loss to the Blue Jays Saturday afternoon.

Oct 01   7:18 PM

Ross Stripling and the Blue Jays bullpen flummoxed the Red Sox on Saturday but Devers was able to connect with two hits. The 25-year-old is hitting .293/.356/.519 with 27 homers and 87 RBI across 604 plate appearances this year.

Pirates placed RHP Wil Crowe on the 15-day injured list with an elbow injury.

Oct 01   6:44 PM

The 28-year-old will hang up his cleats after a serviceable year out of the bullpen for the Pirates. Across 76 innings, he posted a 4.38 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 68/38 K/BB ratio in 60 appearances for Pittsburgh.

Pirates recalled RHP Junior Fernández from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Oct 01   6:44 PM

The Pirates recently claimed the 25-year-old off waivers from the Cardinals. He will return to the major leagues after Wil Crowe landed on the injured list Saturday. He should fill in as middle-relief depth for Pittsburgh down the stretch.

Seiya Suzuki went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer to give the Cubs a one-run lead over the Reds Saturday.

Oct 01   6:18 PM

Suzuki hit a go-ahead homer in the bottom of the seventh inning as the Cubs won their sixth straight game Saturday. The 28-year-old struggled with lingering injuries during the summer months but is hitting a superb .321/.379/.547 across 53 at-bats in September.

Jordan Hicks (arm) felt great after a bullpen session Friday.

Oct 01   5:57 PM

Kyle Farmer went 2-for-4 with one RBI in a loss to the Cubs Saturday.

Oct 01   5:38 PM

Farmer tied the game in the top of the third inning with a single to right field with brought home Spencer Steer. It was the only damage the Reds could muster off the Cubs Saturday. The 32-year-old has been playing more third base and designated hitter as the rebuilding Reds take a look at younger talent. On the season, he is hitting .253/.313/.387 with 14 homers and 76 RBI across 564 plate appearances. 

Jose Azocar returns to the Padres starting lineup batting ninth and patrolling center field on Saturday.

Oct 01   5:18 PM

Kyle Gibson was torched for seven runs over six innings on Saturday in a loss to the Nationals.

Oct 01   5:18 PM

Gibson took the ball for the opening contest of Saturday's twin bill against the Nationals and delivered yet another absolute clunker. He gave up a staggering eight hits, including a pair of home runs before departing. The 34-year-old righty closes out the regular season with an underwhelming 5.05 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 144/48 K/BB ratio across 167 2/3 innings (31 starts). At this point, it's unclear whether he'll make the Phillies' playoff rotation if they still manage to secure the final NL Wild Card spot in the next few days.

Aníbal Sánchez was charged with four runs over five innings on Saturday in a win over the Phillies.

Oct 01   5:18 PM

Sánchez drew the starting assignment for the front end of Saturday's doubleheader against Philadelphia and got plenty of run support from the Nationals' offense to pull out a win. He struck out six batters and only issued three walks.

Luis García went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer and five RBI in the Nationals' win over the Phillies in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

Oct 01   5:18 PM

Kyle Schwarber tripled and also stole a base in the Phillies' blowout loss to the Nationals in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

Oct 01   5:18 PM

Schwarber ripped a leadoff triple to right field and wound up being credited with a steal of home plate on a delayed double-steal later in the frame. The latest loss drops the Phillies back into a tie with the Brewers for the final NL Wild Card playoff spot.
