Brian Dozier delivered a sac fly in the bottom of the 12th to give the Dodgers a 4-3 win over the Giants on Wednesday.

Dozier, who left Monday's game because of dizziness, also doubled and walked twice in the contest. He's hitting .255 with three homers, 12 RBI and a 7/12 K/BB ratio in 14 games for the Dodgers.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was stellar in his return from the disabled list on Wednesday, pitching six scoreless innings against the Giants.

Ryu allowed three hits, walked none and struck out six before coming out. It was a performance much like a few he had before going down with a groin injury at the beginning of May. He can be useful in mixed leagues for however long he's healthy this time.
Aug 16 - 2:40 AM

Caleb Ferguson took a blown save in the eighth after giving up a three-run homer against the Giants.

The Dodgers are having serious problems holding leads without Kenley Jansen to fall back on. Ferguson was trying for what would have been his third hold to go along with two saves this season, but Andrew McCutchen had something to say about that. McCutchen's homer doubled the total of earned runs that Ferguson has allowed in 25 innings out of the pen.
Aug 16 - 2:37 AM

Despite giving up six hits and four walks, Derek Holland kept the Dodgers scoreless for 4 2/3 innings Wednesday.

Two of the walks were intentional. It looked like the Dodgers would finally break through against Holland in the fifth, but Brian Dozier was ruled out at home on a play that was overturned after a challenge and Reyes Moronta was able to get the final out after coming in with the bases loaded.
Aug 16 - 2:35 AM

Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two walks Wednesday against the Giants.

The slumping Kemp has stayed in the lineup because the Dodgers have faced a ton of lefties lately (six in nine games and the last three in a row), but he needs to step it up if he expects to play against righties. The multi-hit game tonight was his first since July 23. He was hitting .318 on that date, but he's at .282 right now.
Aug 16 - 2:32 AM

Andrew McCutchen hit a three-run homer to account for all of the Giants' scoring Wednesday against the Dodgers.

It came in the eighth inning off Caleb Ferguson, erasing the Dodgers' 3-0 lead. McCutchen has lost some fantasy value since moving to the leadoff spot. though he's hitting about as well as he has all year. While he hasn't been great, he's been really consistent, keeping his OPS steadily in between .750 and .800 for two straight months now.
Aug 16 - 2:29 AM

Hunter Pence went 3-for-5 Wednesday in his first start in 12 days.

He had half of the Giants' six hits in their 12-inning loss to the Dodgers. The Giants don't figure to go back to using Pence with any regularity, but they probably should try to keep him fresher than they have been. He had totaled 17 plate appearances in the Giants' previous 15 games.
Aug 16 - 2:26 AM

Brandon Nimmo went 5-for-5 with three RBI and three runs scored as the Mets crushed the Orioles 16-5 on Wednesday.

He got things started early and kept them going all night. He led off the ballgame with a single and came around to score on a Wilmer Flores sacrifice fly. He banged out an RBI-double in the fourth, and tripled to drive in both Kevin Plawecki and Jose Reyes in the sixth. The outfielder's big day boosted his line to .263/.387/.503 with 15 home runs, 39 RBI, 65 runs and eight stolen bases in 411 plate appearances. His .890 OPS leads the team by a wide margin.
Aug 16 - 2:19 AM

Todd Frazier went 3-for-6 with a home run and four RBI during Wednesday's lopsided win over the Orioles.

He pipped a single to right field that plated Brandon Nimmo in the first inning, then cracked a solo dinger off starter Dylan Bundy in the fifth. He drove in two more runs with a double in the sixth to cap off one of his best games in a season that hasn't featured very many good games from the veteran third baseman. Frazier also stole a base today, his seventh of the campaign. He owns a .237 batting average with 12 home runs and 41 RBI in 310 plate appearances. He has been hot for the past week though, with 13 hits in his last eight games.
Aug 16 - 2:13 AM

Zack Wheeler gave up one run over five innings and took home an easy win against the Orioles on Wednesday.

The Mets gave him 16 runs of support in this one, making the win automatic, although most of that run support came after he departed the contest. The only run he allowed came on an Adam Jones RBI-single in the first inning. Wheeler yielded five hits and two walks while notching three strikeouts. He improves to 8-6 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 23 starts. The oft-injured right-hander has been one of the few bright spots for the Mets in a disappointing season.
Aug 16 - 2:05 AM

Jonathan Villar went 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored as his team got routed by the Mets on Wednesday.

He singled in the first inning and scored on an Adam Jones knock. He topped that by whacking a two-run tater in the eighth inning but the ballgame was already a laugher by that point. Villar was traded from the Brewers to the Orioles last month and is in a much better situation in Baltimore. He will be an everyday starter moving forward, although the Orioles impotent lineup will restrict his RBI and run-scoring chances. For the season as a whole he has a .265 batting average with eight homers and 28 RBI. His 15 stolen bases form the basis of his fantasy value. He stole 62 bases with the Brewers in 2016.
Aug 16 - 1:59 AM

Dylan Bundy got taken out behind the woodshed for a seven-run beatdown at the hands of the Mets on Wednesday.

He served up a solo home run to Todd Frazier and a whole bunch of hard contact to the rest of the lineup. He made it through 5 1/3 innings and allowed 11 hits total (six of them for extra bases) while striking out five in the loss. He gave up eight runs in his last start, so it's been a rough stretch for the former elite prospect. He falls to 7-11 with a 4.99 ERA and 1.34 WHIP after 23 starts. He has a nice 137:41 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 131 2/3 innings but has teed up 30 round-trippers already.
Aug 16 - 1:49 AM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored in his first game with the Phillies, leading his new squad to a 7-4 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He cracked an RBI-double that plated Rhys Hoskins in the fourth inning, then scored on a Carlos Santana knock. In the seventh, Ramos banged another double that drove in Justin Bour and Asdrubal Cabrera. The veteran catcher was activated off the disabled list earlier in the day after recovering from a hamstring injury. He was acquired from the Rays last month for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Ramos has a .303 batting average with 14 homers and 56 RBI in 319 plate appearances and should be considered a top-three fantasy catcher for the rest of the season.
Aug 16 - 1:38 AM

Seranthony Dominguez retired the last four batters of the ballgame and was credited with a save against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He was called upon to squelch a bases-loaded situation with two outs in the eighth inning and was able to induce an inning-ending groundout from Andrew Benintendi. He then turned in a 1-2-3 ninth frame to snare his 13th save of the season. He has a 2.32 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 38 appearances.
Aug 16 - 1:28 AM

Vince Velasquez turned in a brief start on Wednesday, allowing three runs in 2 1/3 innings versus the Red Sox.

All three runs scored with one crack of the bat as Mitch Moreland delivered a base-loaded double in the third inning. Velasquez then walked the next two batters and was pulled from the game before he could give up the ghost. It was his second poor start in a row, but his teammates were able to come back and pull out a win later in the game. His record holds at 8-9 with a 4.13 ERA and 1.27 WHIP after 23 starts and one relief appearance. He has a strong 133:49 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 120 innings. He makes for a good streamer against weaker lineups.
