Remember Trevor Story? With six home runs since the All-Star break, including four this weekend, the Rockies shortstop now leads the NL with 27 home runs and ranks third in slugging percentage. Don't give Corey Seager that Rookie of the Year award just yet.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, who has two blown saves on this trip, is on for the ninth inning in another save situation. Dodgers lead 9-6.

The Yankees are 36-3 when leading after six innings this year. They were 66-3 last year, according to ESPN's Stats and Info's Megan O'Donnell. In other words, Aroldis Chapman has put on a show in the 9th, but he hasn't really made the Yankees better.
