Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper (back) has been cleared to play Monday against Washington and right-hander Anibal Sanchez, batting second in the lineup.

Andrew Miller Earns A Save On Sunday

St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Andrew Miller earned his third save of the season in Sunday's win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty pitched very well in Sunday's win. He pitched six innings, allowing just one run on two hits and two walks while striking out 11.

Miami Marlins closer Brandon Kintzler earned his 10th save of the season in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Washington Nationals.

Luke Voit Increases Home Run Lead To Three

New York Yankees first baseman Luke Voit clubbed his 21st home run of the season on Sunday, widening his league-wide lead in home runs to three.
