Ortiz still doing what he does best

He's 40 years old, but David Ortiz can still rake; he's on pace for 34 home runs and 128 RBIs this season. As he faces the Yankees yet again, it's safe to say that nobody foresaw how much damage he'd do against the AL East rival over the years. (Live on ESPN and WatchESPN)

Poor pitching across the board and a lack of offensive production at a couple of spots in the lineup have made for a very frustrating season.

Clayton Kershaw fired a three-hit shutout with 14 strikeouts and called the victory "ugly." He at least had nice things to say about the opposing pitcher, as the Dodgers ended a six-game home losing streak.

The Red Sox have never beaten Nathan Eovaldi, tonight's Yankees starter, in three career starts. Eovaldi, who threw 7 shutout innings against the Rangers in Texas last Monday, has also won both his starts at Fenway, with 3.86 ERA. Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez have homered off him and David Ortiz has three singles in six at-bats.

SportsCenter @sportscenter

Kershaw does it all! He throws a complete game shutout and drives in the only run in Dodgers' 1-0 win over Padres.

Harper gets the golden sombrero

Bryce Harper has a rough day at the plate, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in a win vs. the Cardinals.
