Lucas Duda brought the in-game excitement, homering twice to become the 1st player since 2008 to have 8 straight hits go for home runs. And the Mets had a lot to celebrate, moving within one game of the Nationals in the NL East.


Soler's sensational grab at the wall

The Brewers threatened to force extra innings, but Jorge Soler had other ideas.


Baseball movement not done yet

Yovani Gallardo. Ian Kennedy. And a certain Red Sox infielder. The Baseball Tonight crew discusses the top players who could be dealt before the waiver trade deadline on Aug. 31.


Grichuk takes away a home run

Cardinals CF Randal Grichuk's leaping catch wasn't enough to get St. Louis the win, but that doesn't mean it wasn't great.


Solarte's bare-handed grab and throw

Yangervis Solarte needed to rush on this soft grounder, so he skipped the glove.


Brooks wins in debut with Athletics

In his first start since being traded from the Royals, Aaron Brooks gave up one run over 7 1/3 innings in Oakland's 5-1 win over Cleveland.


Eaton stretches out for sliding catch

The landing wasn't exactly smooth, but this diving grab from White Sox CF Adam Eaton was still a thing of beauty.


Kershaw extends streak in dominant win

Clayton Kershaw tossed 8 scoreless innings of 2-hit ball to move his shutout streak to 37 consecutive innings as the Dodgers beat the Angels 3-1.


Giants spoil Hamels' Texas debut

Cole Hamels gave up 5 runs over 7 2/3 innings, as San Francisco rode a multi-HR night from Brandon Belt to a 9-7 win in 11 innings. Belt had just 1 HR in all of July.


Stanton recovery slower than expected

Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton was hoping to return within 6 weeks of having surgery on his fractured left wrist, but the progress isn't going as expected. "Definitely slower," Stanton said. "That's the generation of your whole swing is that turnover [with] your hand and your wrist. I know what a sore wrist feels like, and now with a broken hand and the sore wrist, it takes a little longer."

Final: Giants 9, Rangers 7 (11)

San Francisco scored 3 times in the 8th inning to force extras before Hunter Pence and Brandon Belt each homered in the 11th to end the Rangers' 3-game win streak. Cole Hamels allowed 5 runs over 7 2/3 innings in his first start with Texas. Box score


Two solo homers have Giants in control

Hunter Pence led off the top of the 11th with a homer and Brandon Belt followed with his 2nd shot of the night to add some insurance against the Rangers in extras. Follow live

Final: Athletics 5, Indians 1

Aaron Brooks went 7 1/3 innings in his first start with the Athletics, allowing 5 hits and 1 run to help Oakland end its 3-game slide. Box score


Rockies snap skid at Busch Stadium

Nolan Arenado and Ben Paulsen combined for 5 RBIs in Colorado's 6-2 win over St. Louis, the Rockies' first win at the Cardinals since May 2013.


Longball fuels Astros' win

Carlos Correa (3 RBIs) and Hank Conger (5 RBIs) each smacked two home runs to snap the Diamondbacks' six-game win streak.
