He's pitched primarily in low-leverage situations, though he has racked up three holds and also worked multiple innings four times. All told, Lamet maintained a 4.05 ERA with a 29:10 K:BB across 20 innings during his time with Colorado.

Torkelson is slashing .204/.285/.607 with eight home runs, 37 runs and 28 RBI in 109 games.

    All three of Murphy's hits were singles. He missed one game with an illness and his since gone 4-for-10 across two contests since his return.

    Contreras is now up to 22 home runs with one more game on the schedule Wednesday.

Either way, it's been a solid season for Contreras, as the veteran has an .815 OPS across 113 games. It'll be his first OPS above .800 since that 2019 campaign, when he finished with a career-best .888 mark.

    Miller capped off the Guardians' five-run fifth inning with his homer, which was his sixth of the season. It also ended up being just enough for Cleveland to earn the win.

    Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Notches quality start in win
    7h ago

    Feltner (4-9) earned the win during Tuesday's 5-2 victory over the Dodgers, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks with four strikeouts in six innings.

    Feltner was granted an early two-run lead but gave it back by surrendering one run on three baserunners in the third inning and a Joey Gallo solo home run in the fifth. Colorado retook the lead in the seventh to put the 26-year-old in line for only his second win in his last 10 turns compared to six losses, while the quality start is his fourth in 19 tries. He concludes his rookie campaign with a high 5.83 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with 84 strikeouts in 97.1 innings across 19 starts and 20 appearances.

    Dodgers' Dustin May: Throwing to hitters
    7h ago

    Manager Dave Roberts said May (back) is scheduled to throw against hitters Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was only briefly shut down from throwing after he landed on the injured list with lower-back tightness Sept. 24, and his return to facing hitters should be one of the final steps in his rehab program. However, Roberts said May isn't guaranteed a spot on the Dodgers' roster for the NLDS, even if he's healthy for the start of the series next week.

    Lamet allowed one hit across two scoreless innings with four strikeouts to earn a hold Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    Lamet was claimed off waivers Aug. 5 and has stuck in the majors since, appearing in 19 games for the Rockies. He's pitched primarily in low-leverage situations, though he has racked up three holds and also worked multiple innings four times. All told, Lamet maintained a 4.05 ERA with a 29:10 K:BB across 20 innings during his time with Colorado.

    Mariners' Justus Sheffield: Victorious in first start
    6h ago

    Sheffield (1-0) earned the 9-6 win in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader win against Detroit, allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks with four strikeouts in five innings.

    Making his first appearance since April 27, Sheffield was up as the 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader and earned the win despite pitching poorly. The 26-year-old surrendered the bulk of the damage on a Kody Clemens grand slam in the fifth inning while also loading the bases in the first and third, though he was able to escape those frames with just one run of damage. The former top prospect barely pitched this year -- compiling a 3.86 ERA in 11.2 innings -- following a subpar 2021 and his chances in the big leagues may be running out.

    Cardinals' Chris Stratton: Defeats former team
    7h ago

    Stratton (10-4) earned the extra-inning win Tuesday, allowing two hits and a walk while striking out two over two scoreless innings.

    Stratton's 10 wins are tied with Toronto's Adam Cimber for the most among major-league relievers this year. Since the start of September, Stratton has allowed just two runs on eight hits and four walks over 10.1 innings. The righty owns a 4.26 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 60:25 K:BB through 63.1 innings between the Cardinals and the Pirates this season. Stratton will likely serve as a multi-inning reliever for the Cardinals during the postseason.

    Bard saved Tuesday's 5-2 win against the Dodgers, tossing a 1-2-3 ninth inning without a strikeout.

    Bard made quick work of the Dodger's in the ninth inning, needing just six pitches to secure his second save in three days against Los Angeles. The 37-year-old threw 35 pitches Sunday so Tuesday's punctual outing was necessary and could keep him in the mix to pitch again during Wednesday's season finale. Bard's scoreless inning streak is now at 15, with his last earned run coming Aug. 26.

    Tepera (5-4) allowed a run on a hit and two walks with one strikeout in 1.1 innings, taking the extra-inning loss versus the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Tepera did fine in the ninth inning, but he loaded the bases and then walked Shea Langeliers to end the contest. That also ended a 4.2-innings scoreless streak for Tepera, who has worked as part of a closer committee down the stretch. The righty reliever has a 3.77 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 47:20 K:BB with six saves, five blown saves and 17 holds in 57.1 innings this season.
