Memorial service set for Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez

"He's a family member", Felipe Zwanzger, 18, said Sunday outside the ballpark - a day when the game against the Mets was canceled because of grief and sorrow.

Mike Dunn (5-1) pitched a ideal fourth for the win. NY sits in the first NL wild-card position, a half-game above San Francisco (82-74).

Corey Kluber had an MRI in Cleveland on Tuesday, a day after he left his start at Detroit with right groin tightness. He sustained a finger injury on his left hand, and he likely would be on a strict pitch limit. But even those concerns were secondary when the Indians poured onto the field to celebrate their first division title since 2007.

Andrew Miller (10-1) won in relief, and Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 30th save in 33 chances. The Mets knocked Koehler out of the game after 3ª innings.

Syndergaard allowed two singles in the second before stranding both runners, then he found his groove in the third.

Drew Storen (4-3) pitched a ideal 10th for the win.

Fans, sadly, were robbed of seeing Fernandez at home on Monday in his beloved Marlins Park - where he had a 29-2 career record and a 1.49 ERA - battling a Mets team that is fighting hard to make the playoffs.

Tebow, who is scheduled to play his first game on Wednesday, singled in his final two at-bats in Tuesday's simulated game. The Pirates Chad Kuhl lasted just two innings at home vs. STL on Sept 5, giving up four hits and walking three.

The NL East champions will go with a combination of Pedro Severino and Jose Lobaton behind the plate in Ramos' absence. He immediately called for medical attention and clutched at the same knee he injured badly during the 2012 season, when he tore his ACL and medial collateral ligament.

"He had lots of juice", Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

Washington was already without reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper due to a thumb injury, slugging second baseman Daniel Murphy (strained glute) and 15-game victor Stephen Strasburg (elbow).

Zack Godley (5-4) got the win behind three scoreless innings in relief. Loria flew in from NY and visited later in the evening after the team had left.

Teixeira tied it 3-all with a one-out drive into the second deck drive in right.

SEA at HOU (-107, 8.5 u15): Doug Fister has given up 16 runs in 20 innings this season to the Mariners.

Tommy Layne wrapped up his first save by getting Troy Tulowitzki to foul out.

"It was just fitting that David would hit a home run, isn't it?" "That's a legitimately real good question". The Cleveland Indians pulled within a half-game of the Rangers. He totaled 93 pitches, didn't lose steam as the game progressed, struck out eight and allowed five hits. Ideally for the Mets, it would be Syndergaard's last regular-season start.

Joey Votto and Scott Schebler went deep for the Reds, who beat St. Louis 15-2 on Monday. It was his first win since August 19.

Due to Koehler's short outing, Miami was forced to use its bullpen for extended innings. Koehler has been stuck on nine victories since August 9, watching his winless drought reach eight starts when he permitted four runs (three earned) on only two hits over four innings in a loss to Washington. With runners on second and third and one out, the Marlins intentionally walked Cespedes to load the bases.
