    Jose Altuve led off the game against Kluber with a bunt single, and Jeremy Pena followed with a two-run homer on a first-pitch cutter. Kluber held the Astros scoreless through five innings after that point, but the damage was enough to saddle him with his 10th loss on the season. 2022 was much of a bounceback campaign for the veteran as his 164 innings pitched were the most he's thrown since logging five consecutive seasons of 200 or more innings from 2014 to 2018.

The only damage came via a leadoff double followed by an RBI single in the top of the second inning, as he held the Rays to just two other baserunners on the afternoon. After a breakout campaign in 2021 when he recorded 11 wins with a 3.48 ERA over 155.1 innings, the 25-year-old has followed it up with 15 wins and a 3.72 ERA over 157.1 innings in 2022.

    After scattering two hits and a walk through the first three innings, Bieber ran into trouble in the fourth and was the victim of some bad defense. The Royals hit three singles in the fourth and scored one of their two runs following a throwing error by Gabriel Arias. The five frames completed brought Bieber's season total to exactly 200, his second time reaching that mark in his career.

    Montero picked up the save with a scoreless ninth inning against the Rays on Sunday. He allowed one hit and two walks while striking out one.

    After getting the first batter to fly out to start the ninth inning, Montero allowed three of the next four batters to reach base and enable the go-ahead run to step up to the plate with two outs. All ended well, however, as he got Taylor Walls to ground out to second base to end the game and record his 14th save of the season. Over his last 10 appearances dating back to Sept. 9, Montero has allowed two earned runs over 10 innings with two saves and four holds.

    Mariners' Carlos Santana: Productive at plate in win
    5h ago

    Santana went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs in a win over the Athletics on Saturday.

    Santana provided a key early hit for the Mariners with his first-inning RBI single, which plated Dylan Moore to erase an early 1-0 deficit. The veteran's ugly .196/.312/.376 slash line is naturally a concern overall, but he's now reached safely in seven of his last eight games.

    Nationals' Nelson Cruz: Sitting again Sunday

    Cruz (eye) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Cruz still has not appeared in a game since Sept. 13, and he will remain out of the starting nine for at least another day. The Nationals have just three games remaining, so although no official announcement has been made, it's certainly possible Cruz's season has already come to a close.
