Stanton comes up short of 60 homers

Fernando Abad took the loss, falling to 2-1 with a 3.30 ERA this season.

"It goes farther back than just this season", Yelich said. The 23-year-old gave up one earned run across 5 1/3 innings in that defeat, the second time in three starts he has given up just one earned run.

Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred has said he prefers reaching an agreement with the union.

Norichika Aoki had one hit in four at-bats in the New York Mets' 11-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne tossed seven innings and allowed two runs, both in his final frame.

Every team except Houston, which had no top-100 selections that year, passed on the chance to get Stanton - and most of those teams had multiple chances. Junichi Tazawa inherited two runners in the eighth and induced pinch-hitter Tyler Flowers to hit into an inning-ending double play.

The Colorado Rockies are this-close to getting the second National League wild card berth, with a two-game lead on the Milwaukee Brewers. The victor will advance to play the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL Division Series beginning on Friday in Los Angeles.

The Yankees sat Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez. From 2012-16, Stanton averaged 43 home runs per 162 games played.

If Thursday was any sign, it appears that Stanton may be headed for a surge in power and if pitched to could hit a few more over the final weekend of the season. Justin Bour cashed in with a two-run single, and Derek Dietrich added a sacrifice fly.

Blue Jays 2, Yankees 1: Jose Bautista singled off the wall and hit a sacrifice fly in what was probably his final game with Toronto, while NY was merely tuning up for the AL wild-card game Tuesday night at home against Minnesota.

Neither Atlanta nor Miami were able to take a step forward in the National League East like they hoped to this season, with the Marlins sitting at 74-84 on the season and 21 games behind the division leading Nationals, while the Braves are 71-87 and 24 games back. He has been very good, especially during the month of September where he has made five appearances (four starts and one relief) and owns an ERA of 1.56 and a WHIP of 1.2115.

Parker Bridwell threw seven shutout innings and Los Angeles blew open a scoreless game with six runs in the seventh to defeat Seattle. He walked four and struck out four in his sixth major league start. There were 117 players with 20 or more, up from 111 a year ago, and 41 with at least 30, up from 38. The Pirates' trio of Starling Marte, Andrew McCutchen and Gregory Polanco at 245 games is a distant second, and no other active trio has started more than 200 games together.

The veteran can opt out of the final four years of his six-year, $130 million contract in the offseason. Prior to this season, his previous career high was 37 home runs, done twice (2012 and 2014).

Mengden (3-2) didn't allow a baserunner until Adrian Beltre led off the fifth with a single to center.
