Jose Ureña pitched five innings on his way to win No. 11 Wednesday. Urena is enjoying the best season of his young career while establishing himself as arguably Miami’s 2017 ace.

Giancarlo Stanton failed to extend his home run streak to seven games, but picked up two hits to bring his batting average to .287. His recent tear has begun to garner some MVP consideration.

After he cleared waivers, the Marlins are allowed to trade Stanton to whichever team they please. However, it is believed that he won’t be traded, but that hasn’t discouraged other teams from checking in on the slugger.

Bruce Sherman met with Major League Baseball’s ownership committee, which is the first official step toward securing the Marlins.

Derek Jeter and Sherman’s ownership of the Marlins may put Jeffrey Loria’s idea of a Jose Fernandez statue in danger.

Around the League

After 12 seasons, Jared Weaver has retired with the San Diego Padres. He wasn’t very effective this season with a record of 0-5 and a 7.44 ERA. Weaver retires a three-time All-Star, two-time American League wins leader, and the proud owner of a no-hitter on May 2, 2012.

Aaron Judge struck out for a record 33rd game in a row. However, Judge did hit an absolute rocket that landed on third deck in left field at Citi Field.

Mookie Betts hit a two-run walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth to help the Red Sox come back and beat the Cardinals.

John Lackey stole his first base of his 15-year career in the bottom of the fourth inning against the Reds. Lackey was soon after picked off at second base.

Wil Myers stole second, third, and home the bottom of the fourth inning. Myers, Dee Gordon, and Jayson Werth are the only three players to steal three bases in the same inning during the last 20 years.
