The Beltway teams clinch, more action from yesterday, and tonight's premium pitching matchups.

The Tuesday Takeaway

With the Nationals sporting an 11 1/2–game lead over the Braves in the NL East and the Orioles running away with the AL East, 12 1/2 games ahead of the Blue Jays entering Tuesday, it was inevitable that the two Beltway clubs would be playing when the calendar flips to October. For the nation’s capital, Tuesday night was as exhilarating as it gets, as the two clubs officially punched their playoff ticket on the same night with wins over their division foes.

All the action! All of it! It's here!

With the Tigers and Royals tied atop the American League Central, one of the squads would walk away with sole possession of the division by the end of last night’s series finale. However, the leader would have to be determined nearly an hour later than planned due to the downpour of rain that delayed the start of the game. The sky continued to open up throughout the night and at times led to tough playing conditions, but that didn’t stop James Shields from turning in an outstanding performance for the visitors.

Ian Kinsler led off the home half of the first with a single, but was erased by a stellar pickoff move from Shields. The Kansas City ace went on to retire the next 18 Tigers that stepped to the plate, with only two balls leaving the infield.

The Dodgers and Nationals played a marathon, Jon Lester and Felix Hernandez dueled, and someone threw a baseball at Andrew McCutchen. Plus find out what to watch today.

Justin Turner claimed Jordan Zimmermann’s pitch had hit him.

Maybe Zimmermann’s 1-2 fastball grazed Turner’s forearm. Maybe Turner is a liar. In any case, there was not enough video evidence to support his claim.

The A's free-fall continued apace, the Phillies threw a no-hitter, and all the rest of the long weekend's action.

The Labor Day Weekend Takeaway
“Embarrassing” and “pathetic” were just two of the words that Oakland skipper Bob Melvin used to describe his team’s play during the weekend’s critical showdown against the division-rival Angels. The A’s began the four-game series just one game behind the Halos in the American League West, but Oakland’s bats went into hibernation during the weekend series as their chances of claiming a third straight division crown are rapidly slipping away.

Protests and hidden perfect games! What a Thursday! Doubleheaders and ace matchups! What a weekend!

The Thursday Takeaway
On July 22nd, the Giants called upon 29-year-old swingman Yusmeiro Petit for an emergency start against the Phillies after they had placed Matt Cain on the 15-day disabled list. The Giants went on to win the game in 14 innings, but there was nothing special about Petit’s start; he lasted five innings, gave up seven hits and five runs, walked two and struck out five.

Yesterday / there was baseball that these teams played / and there will be even more today

The Monday Takeaway
Over the weekend, the Cubs' pitching staff held Baltimore’s potent lineup to just four runs, as the American League East leaders dropped all three games of their series to the club occupying the National League Central cellar.

The exceptional-pitching-in-a-loss edition.


The Thursday Takeaway
When David Price takes the mound, the Rays know better than any team the dominance of which the hard-throwing left-hander is capable. Price turned in countless such outings over his six-plus seasons in Tampa Bay, but on Thursday his former teammates were on the other end of one of his best starts. Fortunately for the Rays, they caught an early break and got a stellar outing from their new ace to ruin Price’s homecoming at Tropicana Field.
