Settling the Score: Tuesday’s results

65 Comments

Tuesday night belonged to Giants rookie right-hander Chris Heston, who threw the first no-hitter of the 2015 season against the Mets at Citi Field.

But how about those Toronto Blue Jays?

Edwin Encarnacion returned from a minor left shoulder injury Tuesday and slugged a walkoff two-run homer as Toronto scored a 4-3 victory over the visiting Marlins. It’s the seventh win in a row for the Blue Jays, who are now back to .500 at 30-30 and boast the very-best run differential in the American League at +54. They’re four games back of the also-streaking Yankees in the AL East standings.

Here’s the replay of that walkoff blast from Encarnacion …

Nationals shortstop Trea Turner underwent surgery on his right index finger, MLB.com’s Manny Randhawa reports. Turner suffered a non-displaced fracture when he was hit by a pitch attempting to bunt in early April.

Turner missed six weeks of action and played through the injury for the remainder of the season. He was quite successful, batting .298/.353/.497 with 19 home runs, 57 RBI, 96 runs scored, and 35 stolen bases across 569 plate appearances. Turner’s performance, especially late in the regular season, helped the Nationals claim the first NL Wild Card. They, of course, would go on to win the World Series.

Turner, who is expected to be healed up by the start of spring training, will be entering his second of four years of arbitration eligibility. He will likely get a sizable raise on his $3.725 million 2019 salary.
