Fantasy Sports Locker Room takes a look at last night’s fantasy baseball news and notes from around Major League Baseball – Twitter style. Marlins with the walk-off in the 9th and Henderson Alvarez picks up a no-hitter! — Chris Meaney (@chrismeaney) September 29, 2013 Just an unreal finish in Miami. The Marlins had the bases juiced in the bottom of the ninth with Henderson Alvarez in the on-deck circle, when Tigers pitcher Luke Putkonen bounced a pitch in the dirt scoring Giancarlo Stanton. Henderson Alvarez watched himself earn a no-hitter from the on-deck circle. Yup: http://t.co/HEolaRgUpi @pepsi #MLBNOW — MLB (@MLB) September 30, 2013 Alvarez struck out four and walked one. Retweet to Congratulate Henderson Alvarez on his first career no-hitter! pic.twitter.com/PvIChQOdOg — Miami Marlins (@Marlins) September 29, 2013   Tribe ends reg. season with 10 straight Ws, becoming just the 6th MLB team since 1900 to end a season w/at least 10 straight. (STATS Inc.) — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) September 29, 2013   We’re in! The Tribe will play host to the 2013 AL Wild Card game! All the details here! http://t.co/2qapBVXPcs pic.twitter.com/pU09z3aFTd — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) September 29, 2013 10 straight wins and 21 of 27 down the stretch for the Indians and good on them. I don’t really consider them in just yet because they will host the winner of the Rangers and Rays game tonight. If they win that game, then they’ll be in. Yes, Texas and Tampa Bay have to play a play in… to play in a play in… for a playoff date with the Boston Red Sox. I know… Either way, I think they wasted Ubaldo Jimenez last night. They could have used his 13K, five hit, one walk and one run performance in the one game playoff. Ubaldo Jimenez‘s ERA since July 28: 1.72. With 94 strikeouts and 1 HR allowed in 78 1/3 innings. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) September 29, 2013   Ubaldo Jimenez now up to 4 double-digit K games in last 6 starts — after 4 in his previous 98 starts. #Indians need him to have a big Oct. — Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) September 29, 2013   Ubaldo Jimenez‘s last 10 starts: 64.2 IP, 79 K, 17 BB, 1 HR, 1.67 ERA. He’s pitching as well as anybody right now. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) September 29, 2013   How bout these September numbers for the #Tribe – Michael Brantley hit . 363-2HR-14RBI & Ubaldo Jimenez 4-0, 1.04ERA! #RollTribe — Kenny Roda (@TheKennyRoda) September 30, 2013   @Indians @MarkShapiro @SportsTimeOhio @NickSwisher @Yan_AGomes @Themikeaviles Just saying….. pic.twitter.com/ezkvZJjpYs — TerminalTower Lights (@TowerLightsCLE) September 29, 2013   After 112 years, this is the first time the @Indians and @Pirates are in the postseason together. — Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) September 30, 2013             I need a good outing from Gyorko to finish in the money in a home league. Something like 2-3, R, RBI and a BB would be great. — Michael Clifford (@SlimCliffy) September 29, 2013 Ask and you shall receive! Jedd Gyorko gives fantasy owners a grand slam on the final day of the season and chances are you were on the winning or losing side of that. The 25-year-old rookie did wonders for fantasy owners down the stretch as he finished the year with 23 home runs, 62 runs and 63 RBI in 125 games. When Hanley Ramirez, Prince Fielder, Yadier Molina and Torii Hunter were resting before the postseason, it was Mike Trout who contributed to my fantasy win. Mike Trout: 4 homers in 27 career at-bats vs. Darvish. Most homers vs. Darvish of any player. — Gerry Fraley (@gfraley) September 29, 2013 Mike Trout is the third player since 1900 to tally 190 hits, 100 walks and 30 steals in a season, joining Ty Cobb and Lenny Dykstra. #Angels — Jacob Jaffe (@Jacob_Jaffe) September 29, 2013     When superstars like above are not playing you end up getting stud performances from guys like Elliot Johnson who collected five RBI on the day. He helped absolutely nobody win their fantasy leagues. Coming into the game he had only 14 on the year. Teammate Gerald Laird finished 4-for-4 with four runs. Catchers just grow on trees in Atlanta because Evan Gattis also went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs and two RBI.  21 homers and 65 ribbies in 105 games for Gattis.     Sonny Gray with the 3 hit, 8 K , 5 inning, shutout win today. Great outing. @SonnyGray2 — Lee Mundy (@VandyGold21) September 29, 2013 Sonny Gray lowers his ERA for his rookie season to 2.67 with five shutout innings in his final start for #Athletics. — John Hickey (@JHickey3) September 29, 2013 A great showing from Sonny Gray who will be on everyone’s fantasy radar next season.     Ironically, Hunter Pence was the only one on my CHAMPIONSHIP fantasy team to start all 162 games for me. — Dan Armelli (@dano708) September 30, 2013 A day after Hunter Pence signed a 5-year 90 million dollar extension with the Giants, he delivers a walk-off single giving him three RBI on the day. He finished the year with 27 home runs, 91 runs, 99 RBI and 22 stolen bases. That’s what fantasy baseball champions are made out of.       Locker Room Fantasy Sports will leave you with the best of the best this year. Hopefully they contributed to a fantasy baseball championship. Final NL pitching leaders: W – J. Zimmermann & Wainwright (19), SO – @ClaytonKersh22 (232), ERA – @ClaytonKersh22 (1.83) — MLB (@MLB) September 30, 2013 Final AL pitching leaders: W – @Max_Scherzer (21), SO – Darvish (277), ERA – @AnibalSanchez19 (2.57) — MLB (@MLB) September 30, 2013 Final NL offensive leaders: HR – Goldschmidt & Pedro Alvarez (36), RBI – Goldschmidt (124), AVG – Cuddyer (.333), OBP – Votto (.435) — MLB (@MLB) September 30, 2013   Final AL offensive leaders: HR – Chris Davis (53), RBI – Chris Davis (138), AVG – @MiguelCabrera (.348), OBP – @MiguelCabrera (.442) — MLB (@MLB) September 30, 2013   We say good bye to Todd Helton. Todd Helton received one last standing ovation in LA. #ThanksTodd: http://t.co/FpC1MBRZyr — MLB (@MLB) September 30, 2013   2013 Postseason Detroit plays Oakland in a rematch of last year’s ALCS Boston awaits the Indians/Rays/Rangers Atlanta plays Los Angeles St. Louis awaits Reds/Pirates Even without Matt Kemp, I like L.A. and St. Louis to advance with the Dodgers appearing in the World Series. In the American League I like the Tigers to knock off the Red Sox, but lose to the Dodgers.
