Ballgame! The Diamondbacks walk it off on Eduardo Escobar's home run off Kenta Maeda in the bottom of the ninth. Frustrating loss for the Dodgers as they go 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position (and 3-for-22 with men on base) and fall to 22-22 in one-run games. The NL West lead is down to a half-game over the Rockies.

In a not-stunning turn of events, the Dodgers have tied the game in the top of the ninth off Brad Boxberger. Chris Taylor's RBI double ties it up and there are still no outs.

The Cubs were shutout by Pittsburgh, 6-0, as their offensive woes continue. Over their last 6 games against the Pirates -- spanning 56 innings -- they've scored just five runs against them. The first five games featured a single, solo home run, in each game, while Tuesday's loss didn't even see a single runner of any kind cross the plate for the home team. Combined with Milwaukee's win over St. Louis the Cubs now lead the Brewers by just 0.5 game with five days remaining in the season.

Umpire Will Little has ejected Matt Carpenter and then manager Mike Shildt for arguing a called third strike on Carpenter. It was a bad call. Everyone's going to rip Little. He did extend Carpenter a lot of leeway, but when Carpenter turned around AGAIN to say something more as he walked away, Little gave him the thumb.

Josh James may be pitching himself onto the postseason roster for the Astros with another solid start, allowing one run in five innings. He sat 95 to 98, can hit 100 in relief, and could give them some length as a long man if needed. A.J. Hinch has a crowded bullpen of relievers to choose from, but James has been electric this month.

Chalk up another milestone for Max Scherzer. The Nats ace whiffed Marlins rookie Austin Dean for his 300th strikeout. Scherzer becomes the 17th pitcher since 1900 to rack up 300 K's in a season, and the fifth since 2000, joining Randy Johnson, Curt Schilling, Clayton Kershaw, and Chris Sale. He's also a lock to lead his league in punchouts for a fourth straight season. In the divisional era, only Johnson and Nolan Ryan have done that.

How great has the Houston pitching staff been? Here's a telling number, courtesy of @SlangsOnSports. The Astros have allowed 520 runs, on pace to allow 540. Since the AL instituted the DH in 1973, the fewest runs allowed in a non-strike season by an AL team is 551 by the '74 A's.

Jason Heyward, on any angst that the Cubs lead is down to 1.5 in the division: "I just want to point out, we have the best record in the NL and we haven't clinched yet. That shows you how good our division is. That shows you how good this league is. It's time to pay respect to how good these other teams have been playing baseball."

Aaron Boone says the MRI revealed no strain in Aaron Hicks' left hamstring. There's some tightness, but the Yankees believe the news they got was good. Hicks is day-to-day. "We do feel like we dodged a bullet."

Didi Gregorius will visit doctors Wednesday morning for the re-evaluation of his wrist. He's planning to take grounders during batting practice today, but he won't be making any throws. He says the wrist continues feeling better.
