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

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.

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