(TSX / STATS) -- ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- So much has changed since the Chicago Cubs and Tampa Bay Rays last met in early July.

When the Cubs won the finale split a two-game set at Wrigley Field, it moved them to 42-42, while the Rays came out of the series with a 44-42 record.

Fast-forward to Tuesday night at Tropicana Field.


Cards activate Wainwright, send to 'pen

(TSX / STATS) -- The St. Louis Cardinals activated right-handed pitcher Adam Wainwright from the disabled list, the team announced Tuesday.

Wainwright, 36, has been absent since mid-August due to a right elbow impingement. He last pitched on Aug. 17, when he gave up seven hits and five runs in three innings.


Tigers' Ferrell OK after taking liner

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers right-hander Jeff Ferrell received a positive medical report and returned to the clubhouse on Tuesday, one day after being struck in the head by a line drive.

Ferrell got hit on the right side of his skull by a comebacker off the bat of Oakland Athletics designated hitter Ryon Healy during the eighth inning. He was immediately helped off the field and taken to a nearby hospital, where he underwent a CT scan. The test came back negative for any skull fracture, and he did not require an overnight stay.


Stanton hits 55th HR as Marlins rip Mets

(TSX / STATS) -- MIAMI -- The Miami Marlins were glad to be back home -- and it showed.

Playing their first game at Marlins Park since Sept. 6 and getting the major-league-leading 55th homer from Giancarlo Stanton, Miami routed the New York Mets 13-1 on Monday night.


Chapman 5-out save gets Yanks past Twins

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- If Dellin Betances loaded the bases in the eighth inning of a one-run game in May or June, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi might have let him attempt to escape the mess.

With two weeks left in the regular season and the Yankees trying to reach the playoffs via wild card or a division title, Girardi wasn't messing around when Betances wobbled Monday night.


Benintendi lifts Red Sox over O's in 11

(TSX / STATS) -- BALTIMORE -- The Boston Red Sox don't mind playing in extra-inning games. In fact, they kind of enjoy it due to their success rate this season.

Andrew Benintendi hit a two-run single in the 11th inning to give Boston a come-from behind, 10-8 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night at Camden Yards.


Brewers gain ground by blanking Pirates

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- The Milwaukee Brewers were in a jovial mood Monday night after their 3-0 shutout of the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. And why not?

The Brewers picked up a half-game in the standings and got some stellar defense, a home run from Ryan Braun, and an RBI and a run from former Pirates player Neil Walker.


Renfroe's HR gets Padres by Arizona

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN DIEGO -- Hunter Renfroe and Austin Hedges homered, and Luis Perdomo was effectively wild as the San Diego Padres beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 on Monday night.

Renfroe hit a three-run, first-inning blast on the day he was recalled from Triple-A El Paso. The rookie smacked 20 homers before being sent down on Aug. 18. Hedges' solo shot in the second was his 18th on the season.


Pedroia exits after taking foul off face

(TSX / STATS) -- BALTIMORE -- Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia left the Red Sox's game with the Baltimore Orioles in the fourth inning Monday with a nasal contusion.

Pedroia fouled off a Dylan Bundy pitch, and the ball bounced down off home plate and then came up and appeared to hit the second baseman in the nose. He stumbled away from the plate and went down to his knees, clutching the area around his nose.
