The Juice returns for season No. 6! It's almost eligible for free-agency! Stop by daily for news from the action, along with great photos, stats, video highlights and more.

We knew the Braves we're going to lose eventually. We just didn't envision it happening in the manner it did against the team it did on Saturday night. Thanks to a lone ninth inning run that scored on a wild pitch that scooted away from catcher Evan Gattis, Atlanta fell to the Miami Marlins, 1-0, snapping their remarkable 14-game winning streak and their undefeated roll since Waffle House was introduced to Turner Field in the process.

But that wasn't the only streak that ended. Miami's one single run also snapped their 22-inning scoreless string, assuring they won't match their previous 37-inning scoreless streak that followed the All-Star break. Or at least not soon. Credit where it's due though, Miami did receive an outstanding performance from Nathan Eovaldi, who held Atlanta to one hit over seven innings. Atlanta would finish with three hits overall, and no extra-base hits.

Good news/bad news for A’s: The good news: Struggling outfielder Josh Reddick has finally found his power stroke. After connecting for three home runs in their 14-6 win on Friday, Reddick connected for two more on Saturday. That’s five home runs in less than 24 hours, which equaled his total coming into play on Friday night. That’s quite a power surge, and if that continues the A’s will be adding another level of danger to an already lethal squad.

The bad news: It wasn't enough on Saturday. They dropped a tough 5-4 battle to the Toronto Blue Jays despite a respectable major league debut by pitching prospect Sonny Gray (6 IP, 4 R (2 ER), 4 H, 3 BB, 5 K).


Tigers 9, Yankees 3: Torii Hunter led the way with three hits and four RBIs. That Miguel Cabrera guys also homered and had three hits of his own.

White Sox 5, Twins 4: Chicago wins for just the third time in 11 games against Minnesota.

Giants 3, Orioles 2: Chris Davis crushed his 42nd home run in a losing effort.

Dodgers 5, Rays 0: Dodgers win despite being victimized by the old hidden ball trick.

Angels 7, Indians 2: If the Detroit series didn't finish them off, this one surely will. Cleveland losses their sixth in a row.

Nationals 8, Phillies 5: Three hits for Jayson Werth, including No. 1,000 in his career.

Padres 3, Reds 1: Cincinnati commits four errors in the loss. Three of those belong to third baseman Jack Hannahan.

Rangers 5, Astros 4: Alex Rios goes 2 for 3 with a walk, run and RBI in his Texas debut.

Red Sox 5, Royals 3: Jacoby Ellsbury matched a career high with four hits.

Cubs 6, Cardinals 5: Fourth straight loss for St. Louis despite a two-homer game from Matt Holliday.

Mets 4, Diamondbacks 1: Prized rookie Zack Wheeler picks up his fifth win in 10 starts.

Rockies 6, Pirates 4: Pittsburgh still holds a four game lead in the NL Central.

Brewers 10, Mariners 0: Milwaukee did all of their damage in the seventh and ninth innings.

''When you set out playing this game, however many years ago, that was one thing, a benchmark you put on the list of things you want to accomplish. It was good.''

Seattle Mariners players wear their hats backwards in honor of Ken Griffey Jr., who was inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame on Saturday night.

• Mets manager Terry Collins says David Wright could miss the rest of the season with his hamstring injury.

• It took Elvis Andrus 453 at-bats to hit his first home run of the season. That was the most by any player without a long ball.

• The Dodgers are 36-8 in their last 44 games.
