Roberto Osuna (R) Headshot

Osuna (3-4) suffered his fourth loss and eighth blown save Sunday against the Cubs after allowing three runs on two hits with two walks and two strikeouts while recording only one out in a wild bottom of the tenth.

Osuna had not one but two hitters reach base after swinging and missing at strike three. He also gave up a single, threw a wild pitch and hit a batter before a second single off the bat of Alex Avila put him out of his misery by plating the tying and winning runs. The closer has now blown four of his past 10 save opportunities, so job security could soon become a concern.

Kevin Na Headshot

Na carded a two-under 68 on Sunday at the Wyndham Championship to finish 17-under and tied for fourth.

Na played in the final group Sunday alongside eventual champion Henrik Stenson, but three bogeys on his back nine pushed him out of contention. Na ranked top-15 in both fairways and greens hit in regulation, leading to 23 birdies throughout the week. He'll be in the field at the upcoming Northern Trust, while he's currently 75th in the FedExCup standings.

Rory Sabbatini Headshot

Sabbatini closed with a six-under 64 on Sunday at the Wyndham Championship to finish 17-under and tied for fourth.

Sabbatini's lone top-10 of the season was good enough to qualify him for the upcoming playoffs as he now ranks 122nd in the FedExCup standings. He's made six consecutive cuts, posting five top-25s during this stretch of solid play. Sabbatini ranked fifth among the field in SG: Around-the-Green and fourth in SG: T2G, but hit just 61 percent of the fairways in regulation at Sedgefield.

Stephen Piscotty (R) Headshot

Piscotty, who was added to the Cardinals roster for Sunday's Little League Classic, could remain with the big-league club moving forward, Jenifer Langosch of reports.

The outfielder was sent down to Triple-A Memphis back on Aug. 7 to work on his swing, and he's promptly gone 10-for-32 with three doubles, four home runs, seven RB and six walks over his time with the Redbirds. Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak has taken note of Piscotty's efforts since his demotion, so much so that the team is contemplating keeping him on the roster when they begin a three-game set at Busch Stadium on Tuesday against the Padres. Even if he does return, Piscotty isn't guaranteed to get his starting job back, considering the trio of Randal Grichuk, Tommy Pham and Dexter Fowler are all producing to varying degrees.

Marwin González (B) Headshot

Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Oakland.

Gonzalez still maintains strong numbers, but he's hit the skids of late, going 4-for-22 (.182) over the previous six games. His .779 OPS for the month of August is the first month he's been below .800. He's overcome down stretches all year, so there's no reason to believe his breakout season is coming to end, but the notion that Gonzalez's success may not last is certainly something to consider.

Ryan Armour Headshot

Armour fired a six-under 64 on Sunday at the Wyndham Championship to finish 17-under and tied for fourth.

Armour, who has never finished top-10 at a PGA event, could've placed even higher this week if it weren't for a third-round 72 that ultimately kept him from contention. He ranked outside of the top-50 in SG: OTT and SG: Around-the-Green, but was fourth in SG: Approach and seventh in SG: Putting. Armour's top-five result wasn't good enough to push him into the playoffs, so he'll end the season at 159th in the FedExCup standings along with just over $400K in earnings.
10:16 pm (EST)
Álex Ávila (L) Headshot

Avila went 1-for-1 with a walkoff two-run single and a walk in Friday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays.

Avila entered this contest as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the ninth, but his heroics didn't come until the next inning. The catcher's walk-off single with one out and the bases loaded was the final nail in the coffin against closer Roberto Osuna, who was victimized by a pair of runners reaching base after striking out.
