Jose Fernandez gave up six runs (five earned) on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts over five innings against the Padres on Friday.
It was an uncharacteristic start from the Marlins hurler on Friday night, taking his second loss of the season after surrendering five or more runs in a game for just the second time. He is now 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA and 0.95 WHIP through eight starts while averaging well over one strikeout per inning pitched (12.19 K/9). Look for him to get back on track when he takes on the Dodgers on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
