RA, 1.62 WHIP) RP - Joel Hanrahan, Boston (4 SV, 9.82 ERA, 2.18 WHIP) Scott

ATLANTA -- Evan Gattis is starting to get his groove back for the Atlanta Braves. Spencer Paysinger Dolphins Jersey . After playing three games in the minor leagues to correct his swing, Gattis returned to the majors and made an immediate impact. "I felt fixed before leaving," Gattis said. "Its good to go there and really kind of put it into action. It was good to have a good night." Kris Medlen pitched seven strong innings while Gattis and Andrelton Simmons homered to help the Atlanta Braves win their second straight game with a 3-1 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night. The Braves have won 20 of 24 at Turner Field to improve the major leagues best home record to 51-19. Gattis, who was recalled earlier in the day after a three-game stint at Triple-A Gwinnett, tied it at 1-all with his 16th homer in the seventh. After Mets starter Carlos Torres (3-3) walked Dan Uggla on nine pitches, Simmons hit his 13th homer to make it 3-1. Medlen (12-12) allowed seven hits and one run while striking out nine. Closer Craig Kimbrel converted his 34th straight save opportunity and improved to 44 for 47 this season. He struck out Juan Lagares and Matt den Dekker, allowed a single to Omar Quintanilla and retired pinch-hitter Justin Turner on a groundout. New York has dropped three straight and nine of 13. Torres gave up seven hits, three runs and one walk. He tied career highs with six strikeouts and seven innings pitched. The Mets took a 1-0 lead in the sixth on Daniel Murphys RBI double with one out, but Medlen limited the damage on Josh Satins groundout and Lucas Dudas strikeout. In the seventh, New York manager Terry Collins let Torres bat with runners at first and third, but the pitcher struck out. Torres lost the lead in the bottom half of the inning, unable to finish off Gattis and Uggla when both hitters fell behind with 0-2 counts. "Look where he was in that point in the game, and he was cruising," Collins said. "Theyre dangerous so you cant make any mistakes. He gave us a chance. We just couldnt put up any runs." Medlen erased the first two runners in scoring position -- Eric Young Jr. in the first and Duda in the fourth. After Young tripled over Gattis head in left field in the sixth and scored on Murphys double, Medlen escaped further damage when Josh Satin grounded out and Duda took a called third strike. "Whatever jam you get in, you always feel like you can get out of it," Medlen said. "Im always thinking positive. Whether other people do, I dont know, but Im always figuring out a way to get out of stuff. Its something you learn as you mature in this game. I think Ive figured how to battle, how to go at guys, and today I did a decent job of that." Duda doubled with two out in the fourth, getting stranded on dArnauds strikeout, but his average dropped to .169 in 59 at-bats with runners in scoring position. Gattis, who went 3 for 3, spent the previous three days at Triple-A Gwinnett to get some at-bats. The NLs rookie of the month winner for April and May had slumped in August, but he seemed to correct his issues by going 6 for 13 in three games at Gwinnett. Gattis took four pitches from Torres before crushing a cutter into the seats in left-centre field. It was his first homer since the Braves 8-2 victory at New York on July 24 -- a span of 70 at-bats. "Its good to square the ball up, first," Gattis said. "It just ended up being a home run, you know." Atlanta has won 29 of its last 38 games and has rallied for 41 victories, best in the NL. Notes: Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said RF Jason Heyward, on the 15-day disabled list with a broken jaw, met with a doctor Tuesday and has been cleared to play catch and hit balls off a tee. ... Medlen is 2-1 with a 3.20 ERA and has 29 strikeouts in 25 1-3 innings in four starts against the Mets this year. ... Collins said before the game that he expects RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka will make his next scheduled start Sunday at Cleveland. Matsuzaka is 0-3 with a 10.95 ERA in three starts with New York. ... Collins added 1B Ike Davis, sidelined for the fourth straight with a strained right oblique, was in New York to see a doctor. ... Braves OF Jordan Schafer grounded out as a pinch-hitter for Medlen in the seventh. Schafer went 4 for 5 on Monday before leaving the game early with a sore back. Dontrelle Inman Chargers Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Wes Hopkins Eagles Jersey .com) - Manchester City midfielder David Silva is expected to miss the next four weeks because of a calf problem. . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St.More than a quarter of the 2013 Major League Baseball season is in the books, so Scott Cullen digs into the numbers to make his picks for MLB awards to this point of the season, along with Gold Gloves, All-Surprise and All-Disappointing teams. AL MVP Miguel Cabrera, 3B, Detroit (12 HR, 49 RBI, .384 AVG, 1.122 OPS) Runners Up: Evan Longoria, 3B, Tampa Bay (9 HR, 29 RBI, .335 AVG, .981 OPS) Mike Trout, LF, L.A. Angels (9 HR, 34 RBI, 9 SB, .293 AVG, .931 OPS) Apparently the hot corner rules in the American League, as a healthy Evan Longoria moves up as the primary challenger to Miguel Cabrera, who continues to hit like no one else on the planet. Last years runner-up, Trout, is heating up, so we could get to re-live the Cabrera-Trout debate from 2012. Baltimores Chris Davis and Manny Machado, Bostons Dustin Pedroia and the Yankees Robinson Cano are also off to impressive starts this season. NL MVP Shin-Soo Choo, CF, Cincinnati (9 HR, 19 RBI, 5 SB, .303 AVG, .994 OPS) Runners-up: Paul Goldschmidt, 1B, Arizona (12 HR, 36 RBI, .323 AVG, 1.019 OPS) Joey Votto, 1B, Cincinnati (6 HR, 20 RBI, .353 AVG, 1.003 OPS) It wont be easy for one of the Reds on-base machines to distinguish from the other, but Choo gets the edge on Votto for now. Goldschmidt has become a beast at the plate for the Diamondbacks and is ahead of recent contenders like Mets 3B David Wright and Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki, as well as up-and-coming Brewers SS Jean Segura and Braves LF Justin Upton. AL CY YOUNG Clay Buchholz, Boston (6-0, 1.78 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 69 K, 65 2/3 IP) Runners Up: James Shields, Kansas City (2-4, 2.45 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, 62 K, 66 IP) Chris Sale, Chicago White Sox (5-2, 2.53 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, 61 K, 64 IP) A close race, that could also include Clevelands Justin Masterson as well as the Seattle duo of Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma, is currently led by Buchholz, though not by much over Shields and Sale. Traditionalists would go off the deep end regarding Shields 2-4 record but, at this point, we know how little to value pitcher wins. NL CY YOUNG Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles (5-2, 1.35 ERA, 0.82 WHIP, 72 K, 73 1/3 IP) Runners-up: Matt Harvey, N.Y. Mets (5-0, 1.55 ERA, 0.72 WHIP, 68 K, 63 2/3 IP) Patrick Corbin, Arizona (7-0, 1.44 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 52 K, 62 1/3 IP) Its preposterous that there is only one Cy Young for the National League, given the calibre of these pitching performances. Through the first quarter of the season, its hard to imagine pitching better than Harvey, but then theres Kershaw, who goes nearly an extra inning per game. Both are amazing. Cardinals rookie Shelby Miller and Cubs southpaw Travis Wood are early contenders too. AL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR Conor Gillaspie, 3B, Chicago White Sox (3 HR, 8 RBI, .283 AVG, .783 OPS) Runners Up: Brandon Barnes, OF, Houston (2 HR, 9 RBI, .317 AVG, .872 OPS) Nick Tepesch, SP, Texas (3-4, 3.98 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 31 K, 43 IP) Lots of time for others to get involved in this race, since the American League list is wholly unimpressive. Gillaspie and Barnes have been okay, in limited time, and Tepesch has been decent; even add Clevelands Yan Gomes or Tepeschs teammate Justin Grimm, into the mix, but none of the American Leaguers are huge standouts right now. NL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR Shelby Miller, SP, St. Louis (5-3, 1.74 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 62 K, 57 IP) Runners-up: Jedd Gyorko, 2B, San Diego (4 HR, 15 RBI, .278 AVG, .777 OPS) Didi Gregorius, SS, Arizona (3 HR, 8 RBI, .348 AVG, .964 OPS) While the AL race isnt particularly inspiring, Shelby Miller is a Cy Young candidate, showing the ace-calibre stuff that made him such a top prospect (and somehow went missing during a disappointing 2012 in Triple-A). Gyorko has been a solid contributor, only recently starting to show the power that was expected while Gregorius has been an offensive revelation, compiling a .694 OPS in six minor league seasons before raking this year. Its the kind of surge that is awfully difficult to maintain. The NL race is more interesting, though, because it could also include Braves C Evan Gattis, Marlins SP Jose Fernandez, Dodgers LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu or Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock. GOLD GLOVES C - Russell Martin, Pittsburgh Runners-up: A.J. Ellis, Los Angeles; Wilin Rosario, Colorado All three of those named are in the top five among percentage of baserunners caught stealing and Martin is the far-and-away leader in assists for catchers, with 37, 10 more than any other (Ellis is tied for second, Rosario is fifth). BBaltimores Matt Wieters, Houstons Jason Castro and the Cubs Welington Castillo are also strong behind the dish. Laremy Tunsil Dolphins Jersey. 1B - Brandon Belt, San Francisco Runners-up: Eric Hosmer, Kansas City; Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona A couple of young players still working on their offensive production, Belt and Hosmer, rank first and fourth in Ultimate Zone Rating, (as well as second and fifth, respectively, in Defensive Runs Saved) and Goldschmidt is merely the well-rounded one, an MVP candidate who leads all first basemen in Defensive Runs Saved. 2B - Dustin Pedroia, Boston Runners-up: Jose Altuve, Houston; Brandon Phillips, Cincinnati Surehanded Pedroia has yet to commit and error and leads in Defensive Runs Saved as well as Defensive WAR, while Altuve leads in double plays, is tied for second in DRS and ranks third in Ultimate Zone Rating, ranking just behind Phillips. 3B - Manny Machado, Baltimore Runners-up: Evan Longoria, Tampa Bay; Chase Headley, San Diego A former shortstop, Machado is the class of the position this season, leading in UZR and DRS. Headley might be ahead of Longoria with more games played, though if were playing that game, Rockies rookie Nolan Arrenado would be a challenger to Machado if he had played more than 21 games. SS - Andrelton Simmons, Atlanta Runners-up: Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado; Evlis Andrus, Texas Simmons is the clear leader at the position, but these three, along with Stephen Drew, are the top four in UZR, while Drew is just outside the top four in DRS. LF - Andy Dirks, Detroit Runners-up: Juan Pierre, Miami; Starling Marte, Pittsburgh This trio is ahead of the rest in DRS, but Dirks also leads left fielders in UZR, so thats enough to give him the nod. Notable that Vernon Wells has been pretty solid for the Yankees too. CF - Carlos Gomez, Milwaukee Runners-up: A.J. Pollock, Arizona; Jacoby Ellsbury, Boston Gomez has always been a very good fielder while Pollock is making the most of an opportunity presented by Adam Eatons injury. They are clearly the top two, with Ellsbury just edging out Texas Craig Gentry and Atlantas B.J. Upton. RF - Shane Victorino, Boston Runners-up: Gerardo Parra, Arizona; Norichika Aoki, Milwaukee Victorino must be getting to everything and then some; his UZR is best in baseball across all positions. Aoki leads in DRS and Parra is tops in Defensive WAR. (I realize there are Gold Gloves awarded in both leagues.  Im just trying to recognize the best fielders at each position.) ALL-SURPRISE TEAM C - John Buck, N.Y. Mets (10 HR, 31 RBI, .224 AVG, .746 OPS) 1B - Chris Davis, Baltimore (13 HR, 41 RBI, .312 AVG, 1.070 OPS) 2B - Omar Infante, Detroit (3 HR, 14 RBI, .318 AVG, .794 OPS) SS - Jean Segura, Milwaukee (7 HR, 20 RBI, 14 SB, .353 AVG, .964 OPS) 3B - Josh Donaldson, Oakland (6 HR, 28 RBI, .315 AVG, .920 OPS) LF - Vernon Wells, N.Y. Yankees (10 HR, 24 RBI, .288 AVG, .855 OPS) CF - Carlos Gomez, Milwaukee (6 HR, 20 RBI, 9 SB, .327 AVG, .924 OPS) RF - Nate Schierholtz, Chicago Cubs (5 HR, 19 RBI, .285 AVG, .841 OPS) SP - Patrick Corbin, Arizona (7-0, 1.44 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 52 K, 62 1/3 IP) SP - Travis Wood, Chicago Cubs (4-2, 2.24 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 39 K, 60 1/3 IP) SP - Kyle Kendrick, Philadelphia (4-2, 2.82 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 41 K, 60 2/3 IP) SP - Alex Cobb, Tampa Bay (5-2, 2.73 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 54 K, 59 1/3 IP) SP - Justin Masterson, Cleveland (7-2, 2.83 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 71 K, 70 IP) RP - Edward Mujica, St. Louis (13 SV, 1.42 ERA, 0.53 WHIP, 18 K, 19 IP) ALL-DISAPPOINTING TEAM C - Miguel Montero, Arizona (3 HR, 14 RBI, .189 AVG, .547 OPS) 1B - Paul Konerko, Chicago White Sox (4 HR, 17 RBI, .217 AVG, .613 OPS) 2B - Rickie Weeks, Milwaukee (3 HR, 10 RBI, .167 AVG, .548 OPS) SS - Zack Cozart, Cincinnati (5 HR, 20 RBI, .206 AVG, .565 OPS) 3B - David Freese, St. Louis (1 HR, 9 RBI, .223 AVG, .574 OPS) LF - David Murphy, Texas (5 HR, 16 RBI, .218 AVG, .653 OPS) CF - B.J. Upton, Atlanta (3 HR, 6 RBI, .153 AVG, .488 OPS) RF - Josh Hamilton, L.A. Angels (6 HR, 14 RBI, .222 AVG, .655 OPS) SP - Roy Halladay, Philadelphia (2-4, 8.65 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) SP - Ryan Vogelsong, San Francisco (2-4, 7.19 ERA, 1.73 WHIP) SP - Josh Johnson, Toronto (0-1, 6.86 ERA, 1.88 WHIP) SP - Brett Anderson, Oakland (1-4, 6.21 ERA, 1.62 WHIP) RP - Joel Hanrahan, Boston (4 SV, 9.82 ERA, 2.18 WHIP) Scott Cullen can be reached at and followed on Twitter at For more, check out TSN Fantasy on Facebook.
