The Miami Marlins disrupted the New York Mets run to the playoffs with an emotional win that included a big early home run from Dee Gordon, honoring Jose Fernandez. The Mets remain on top of the NL Wild card standings, ahead of the San Francisco Giants (in the playoffs right now) and the St. Louis Cardinals, getting clobbered by the Cincinnati Reds. The Chicago Cubs made it to 100 wins, the Cleveland Indians clinched the AL Central title, and the New York Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays, but didn’t change the AL Wild Card picture.

Arizona Diamondbacks 14  Washington Nationals 4: Wilson Ramos picking up an injury is more worrying than the loss for the Nats. Jean Segura hit two home runs to finish with 3 RBIs. Yasmany Tomas had 5 RBIs, hitting his 30th homer of the season.

Chicago Cubs 12  Pittsburgh Pirates 2: The Cubs make it to win number 100 this season, behind Javier Baez’ six RBIs, including a grand slam home run. Kyle Hendricks dropped his ERA to 1.99, not giving up a run in his start.

New York Yankees 7  Toronto Blue Jays 5: The win by the Yankees ignited some flames between the teams, but ended the Yankees losing streak, although it’s probably too late for the playoffs. Mark Teixeira and Aaron Hicks both hit home runs, Adam Warren picked up the win for his 2-inning relief.

Cleveland Indians 7  Detroit Tigers 4: The Indians clinch the AL Central crown, their first since 2007, while pushing the Tigers further away from making the postseason. Coco Crisp surprised with a two-run homer, his 13th overall this season.

New York Mets 3  Miami Marlins 7: The Mets loss didn’t mean anything because the Giants and Cardinals lost too, but the big story was the Marlins honoring and remembering Jose Fernandez. Dee Gordon hit his first home run coming back from suspension, in a game that was a mix of cheers and tears for the players, fans, and pretty much everyone involved.

Milwaukee Brewers 8  Texas Rangers 3: Matt Garza put in a quality day on the mound, or at least enough while Jonathan Villar hit two home runs to finish with 5 RBIs.

Tampa Bay Rays 1  Chicago White Sox 7: James Shields didn’t implode for once, while Justin Morneau and Carlos Sanchez (again) hit home runs to deliver a rare easy win for the White Sox.

Seattle Mariners 4  Houston Astros 3: The Mariners remain 2 games behind the Orioles, winning thanks to Robinson Cano hitting a home run in the 11th inning, his 35th of the season. He hit one earlier in the game as well.

Cincinnati Reds 15  St. Louis Cardinals 2: The Cardinals remain out of the wild card top 2, falling a bit further behind the Giants. Adam Duvall hit two home runs, making it to 100 RBIs. Joey Votto his a home run to, making it to 90 RBIs this season.

Oakland Athletics 1  Los Angeles Angels 2: Mike Trout and Stephen Vogt traded home runs, but in the 8th inning Albert Pujols grounded out to the pitcher, which allowed Yunel Escobar to reach home and win the game.
