New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard took a tough no-decision Saturday, allowing just one run on two hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out 10.
The rookie heads into the postseason with a head of steam, tossing quality starts in three of his last four starts with an eye-popping 37:2 K:BB ratio in 27.2 innings. Syndergaard figures to be a key part of the impressive young Mets rotation in the playoffs, not to mention 2016 and beyond.
Miami Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler escaped with a no-decision in Game 1 of Saturday's double-header, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits.
He gave up at least four runs in each of his last three starts, but Koehler's 4.15 ERA on the season as a starter will keep him in consideration for a spot at the back of the Marlins rotation in 2016.
Houston Astros outfielder Colby Rasmus went 3 for 4 with two solo home runs in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks .
Rasmus has now gone deep in consecutive nights, reaching a career-high 25 home runs on the season. The former top prospect has been a one category player in 2015, providing power but underwhelming in most other areas.
Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut (back) shed 22 pounds during the offseason, CSN Bay Area reports.
Bogut is a new man in training camp, and there's no sign of the back injury that plagued him during the summer. He credits watching the documentary "Is Sugar the New Fat?" in changing his eating habits.
A slimmer, more active Bogut might be less of a misfit when the Warriors go to a smaller lineup, a strategy that worked so well for them last season.
Phillies outfielder Roman Quinn has recovered from the tear in his hip flexor, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Quinn missed the final three months of Double-A Reading's season because of the injury. He has been playing in the instructional league and will join the Tigres del Licey in the Dominican Republic in the coming days to play winter ball.
