10/3/2015 Max Scherzer, Was, P
Scherzer threw his second no-hitter of the season and struck out a team-record 17 Saturday against the New York Mets.

Analysis: The Mets' lone base runner came on Yunel Escobar's error in the sixth inning. Scherzer fanned nine of the final 10 hitters in his dominant effort and finishes with a career-high 259 while going 13-12 with a 2.94 ERA.
10/3/2015 Gerrit Cole, Pit, P
Cole isn't going to miss the NL wild-card game this time around. The Pirates announced Saturday their All-Star ace will start Wednesday's elimination game against the Chicago Cubs. Cole is third in the National League with 19 wins. He went 2-1 with a 2.13 ERA in four starts against Chicago during the regular season.

Analysis: Cole did not start last year's 8-0 wild-card loss to San Francisco after Pirates manager Clint Hurdle opted to go with Cole in the regular-season finale in the hope of catching St. Louis for the NL Central title. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 amateur draft went 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA in two playoff starts for the Pirates during the 2013 NL Division Series against the Cardinals.
10/3/2015 Carlos Correa, Hou, SS
Correa was 3 for 4 with a home run, four RBIs and four runs scored in Friday's win in Arizona.

10/3/2015 Dallas Keuchel, Hou, P
Keuchel became the AL's first 20-game winner and the Astros routed the Arizona Diamondbacks 21-5 Friday night.

Analysis: Keuchel (20-8) gave up two runs and six hits in six innings, becoming the Astros' first 20-game winner since Roy Oswalt went 20-12 in 2005.
10/3/2015 Nolan Arenado, Col, 3B
Arenado homered for the third time in his last six games in Friday's win in San Francisco. He's driven in 13 runs in that time.

Analysis: Arenado's 42 home runs for the season are tied with Todd Helton's 2000 total for fifth in franchise history, though that came in Coors Field's pre-humidor era. Arenado and teammate Carlos Gonzalez are the only Rockies players to reach 40 since it was installed in 2002.
10/3/2015 Jake Arrieta, ChC, P
Arrieta allowed two singles and struck out seven in six innings in a 6-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night to win his 22nd game.

10/2/2015 Chris Sale, CWS, P
Sale set the Chicago White Sox's season strikeout record in the second inning of Friday night's game against the Detroit Tigers. By getting James McCann looking at a 3-2 breaking ball, Sale registered his 270th strikeout of the season.

Analysis: Sale entered the game with 267 strikeouts and broke the mark set by Hall of Famer Ed Walsh in 1908 when he struck out 269 batters. He became the third American League left-hander since 1972 to record at least 270 strikeouts in a season, joining David Price (2014) and Randy Johnson (1993, 1995, 1997).
10/2/2015 Joey Votto, Cin, 1B
Votto has tied a Cincinnati Reds record by reaching base safely in his 48th consecutive game Friday.

Analysis: Votto singled in the third inning Friday night off Pittsburgh Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano to match Pete Rose's mark set in 1978. Rose's run included a 44-game hitting streak, the longest in National League history. Votto also reached base for the 316th time this season, equaling the club record he set in 2013.
10/2/2015 Robinson Cano, Sea, 2B
Cano will undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia in two weeks and expects to be fully recovered by spring training.

Analysis: The Mariners' star second baseman, who will turn 33 on Oct. 22, plans to play in the final three games of the season before having surgery on Oct. 13.
10/2/2015 Jose Fernandez, Mia, P
