(Los Angeles, CA)  —  The best team in baseball is adding a big arm for the stretch run.  The Dodgers acquired starting pitcher Yu [[ Yoo ]] Darvish from the Rangers before baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline on Monday.  LA also picked up relievers Tony Watson from Pittsburgh and Tony Cingrani from Cincinnati.

>>Yankees Acquire Gray From A’s

(Bronx, NY)  —  The Yankees are bolstering their rotation for a playoff push.  New York acquired starting pitcher Sonny Gray from the A’s in exchange for three prospects.  The 27-year-old Gray is 6-and-5 with a 3.43 ERA in 16 starts this season.  He won’t be eligible for free agency until 2020.

>>Gonzalez Flirts With No-No As Nats Blank Marlins

(Miami, FL)  —  Gio Gonzalez took a no-hitter into the ninth inning as the Nationals blanked the Marlins 1-0 in Miami.  Dee Gordon led off the ninth with a single to break up the bid.  Gonzalez improved to 9-and-5 after tossing eight-plus innings of one-hit ball.  Miami’s Edinson Volquez has the only no-hitter in the majors this season.

>>Cubs Give Bartman World Series Ring

(Chicago, IL)  —  The man blamed by many Cubs fans for preventing the team from getting to the 2003 World Series is getting a very special gift.  The Cubs are giving Steve Bartman a 2016 World Series championship ring.  Bartman infamously interfered with a foul ball in Game Six of the 2003 NLCS, causing most fans to blame him for the Cubs’ eventual series loss.
