More on Jackie Bradley Jr. calling Mookie Betts' shot: "I hate to take a lot of credit," Bradley said, "but I called it. In that situation, it was big. It was a big swing from a big-time player. You have 'The Playmaker' at the plate. It was just something that I was feeling." If the ball hadn't gone over the fence, "I would have probably cried," Betts said.

Davis saves the day with incredible catch

Rajai Davis bobbled the ball at the warning track, somehow hung onto it for the out, then sent it back to the infield for the game-ending double play.

I think I'm better looking."

Manny Machado on what it was like coming back from his four-game suspension: "It felt good. I wasn't sitting at home and just drinking some beer and not doing anything. I was in here working, working out in the cage, doing what I needed to do to stay fresh. I knew it wasn't a vacation at the end of the day. I had to come in here and help this team in whatever way I can."

Joe Maddon said Anthony Rizzo is likely to play on Saturday against the Marlins while Ben Zobrist probably won't. Zobrist got hit by a pitch on the back of his left foot. X-rays were negative. Just a bruise.
