The Pirates' Andrew McCutchen ejected for slamming his bat after called Strike 3. Seemed to have a beef, but the bat slam might have been a bit much.

Andrew McCutchen ejected from the game after disputing a couple of strike calls in his at-bat. He doesn't get that angry very often.

Add Mike Bolsinger to the list of pitchers the Dodgers do not expect to use as a starter Wednesday at Milwaukee. Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy, Ross Stripling and Chris Taylor were already eliminated from consideration Saturday. One pitcher not yet eliminated: minor-leaguer Brock Stewart, who started the season at Single-A and has a 1.78 ERA over three different levels.

Clayton Kershaw remembered how to intentionally walk somebody that last half inning. No small feat since he hasn't done it in over a year.

You see the best pitcher on the planet taking the mound. The Pirates' Chris Stewart sees batting practice. Stewart is now 9-for-17 lifetime against Clayton Kershaw after that double, his second hit today.

For all those hoping to board the Lucas Giolito hype train, not so fast. Yes, the Nats' top prospect, who last threw June 22nd for Double-A Harrisburg, could slot in on Tuesday, when Washington - which placed Stephen Strasburg on the DL today - needs a spot starter. But # 9 prospect Austin Voth, who's no chopped liver either (2.99 ERA at Triple-A Syracuse) and last worked on June 23rd, probably makes more sense. The Nationals are expected to announce a roster move on Monday.
