Raisel Iglesias returns and notches his first save of the season. (+Cuban MLB Report)

Raisel Iglesias returned from the minors and a rehabilitation stint for Atlanta not wasting any time in notching his first save of the season in the Braves’ 5-4 victory over the Orioles. The righty fanned two of the three batters he faced in a scoreless ninth and looked like his old dominant self.

Jorge Soler went yard for the seventh time on the season to account for one of Miami’s two runs in their 4-2 loss to the Cubs. The slugging outfielder also scored two times and is now hitting .224 on the campaign.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr banged four hits in five trips to the plate, one of them being a solo homerun in the ninth to tie the game at seven. The Dbacks walked it off against Washington 8-7 and the outfielder is hitting a robust .417 with four RBIs in his last seven games.
