Some time between now and Nov. 1, Cole Hamels must submit to the Phillies a 20-team no-trade list for next season, major league sources told Yahoo Sports. The nine teams to which he couldn’t block a trade this season indicate his mindset: both Los Angeles teams, the Yankees and Red Sox, Washington, Atlanta, St. Louis, Texas and San Diego.

Matt Holliday doesn’t get too technical about what he tries to do at the plate for the Cardinals. Holliday hit his third home run in two games and broke an eighth-inning tie with a two-run single, rallying St. Louis past the Chicago Cubs 9-6 on Sunday. ”I just try to hit the ball to the middle of the field,” said Holliday, who has five homers against the Cubs this season and 20 in his career. ”Trying to hit a single up the middle is a good approach.” Holliday finished with three hits and four RBIs for the Cardinals, who moved into a tie with Milwaukee for first place in the NL Central.

On a night when hard-hit balls were finding defenders, and vice versa, it took a floater to deny San Francisco Giants right-hander Jake Peavy a piece of history. Peavy took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and then combined with three relievers on a four-hitter in a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. The win was the fifth straight for the Giants (73-62), who clinched a series win against a team with a winning record for the first time since taking three of four from the St. Louis Cardinals from May 29 to June 1. It also allowed them to gain a game on the National League West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers (76-60) for the second night in row.

The Kansas City Royals added Jayson Nix into the mix on Thursday as they acquired the veteran journeyman infielder off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates.
