It’s a holiday, so ATH is off, celebrating the economic and social contributions of workers everywhere.  It is, however, tipping a cap to Chipper Jones, who did some freakin’ work last night, hitting a walkoff homer for the second time against Philly this year. The man was, is and always will be a beast.

As for  the scores:

Braves 8, Phillies 7
Tigers 4, White Sox 2
Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 4
Rockies 11, Padres 10
Mariners 2, Angels 1
Giants 7, Cubs 5

Brewers 12, Pirates 8
Royals 6, Twins 4
Reds 5, Astros 3
Rays 9, Blue Jays 4
Nationals 4, Cardinals 3
Orioles 8, Yankees 3

The Yankees announced on Monday that the club signed infielder Brad Miller to a minor league contract.

Miller, 29, was designated for assignment by the Indians last week. He wasn’t happy about that decision, saying, “Obviously, [the Indians] don’t want the best guys up here.”

Miller hit .250/.325/.417 with a homer and four RBI in 40 plate appearances with the Indians. The Indians have one of the worst offenses in the league and Miller was one of only a handful of players even hitting at a passable level, which did make his DFA all the more surprising.

The Yankees, decimated by injuries, need depth and Miller will provide that at the very least.
