    Sabathia hopes strong outing will turn season around

    New York Yankees LHP CC Sabathia hopes his strong outing in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field can turn his season around. Sabathia (8-10) threw seven innings of one-run ball, giving up three hits and striking out seven batters, as he won for the second time in his last three starts. He had been 2-6 with a 6.78 ERA over his previous 11 starts since starting the year 5-4 with a 2.20 ERA.  "We know what a competitor CC is; it's frustrating for him," manager Joe Girardi said, according to the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand. "There's been a lot of games, I've said, where he's pitched a lot better than the line." Added catcher Brian McCann (via Newsday's Erik Boland):

    Mets are considering pushing back Jacob deGrom’s next start

    The Mets are concerned with starter Jacob deGrom and are considering pushing back his next start, MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo reports. The club thinks the right-hander is fatigued. deGrom, 28, has had another strong season, currently standing with a 2.96 ERA and a 137/32 K/BB ratio in 143 innings. However, he’s battled command issues in his last two starts. Against the Giants and Cardinals, he gave up a combined 13 earned runs on 25 hits and three walks with eight strikeouts in nine and two-thirds innings. The Mets are already without Steven Matz, Zach Wheeler, Matt Harvey, and Jon Niese. deGrom’s recent bout is just the latest in what has been a season-long starting pitching struggle for the club.

    And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Here are the scores. And here are the highlights: Astros 5, Pirates 4: Evan Gattis and Carlos Correa homer as the Astros scratch out five runs off of Gerrit Cole. Finishing the road trip 5-2 has to make the Astros feel a bit better about things at the moment. They’re still four and a half back with four teams ahead of them in the Wild Card, but there’s still time. Brewers 7, Rockies 1: Two homers from Ryan Braun, driving in three while Zach Davis allowed one run over six, striking out eight. Four wins in a row for Milwaukee. That means nothing for playoff purposes — they ain’t in the conversation — but they can mention it in the holiday letter. Athletics 5, Indians 1: Kendall Graveman allowed
