OUT LOUD

"A no-hitter is kind of hitting rock-bottom. You can only go up from there."

— Catcher Yasmani Grandal after his Dodgers became the most expensive team ($300 million payroll) ever to be no-hit.

GAME OF NUMBERS

5

Homers for Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner. That is more than 198 position players boasting 50 or more at-bats entering Saturday.

29

Strikeouts for Chris Sale in his past two starts, setting a White Sox record.

19

Jersey numbers the Yankees have retired, after Saturday's ceremony for former catcher Jorge Posada, who wore No. 20.

Lucky number seven

Yoenis Cespedes

OF, N.Y. Mets

He blasted three homers Friday while the Astros' Mike Fiers no-hit the Dodgers. It marked the seventh day in MLB history that a hitter and pitcher notched those feats on the same day and the third time in 2015 (Reds infielder Joey Votto and the Giants' Chris Heston, June 9; the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez and then-Phillies ace Cole Hamels, July 25).
