Ashley McLennan | Bless You Boys: Tigers broadcaster Jack Morris has been suspended indefinitely after using a mock Japanese accent when talking about Shohei Ohtani. Bally Sports Detroit issued a statement that Morris would undergo bias training.

Ben Clemens | FanGraphs: Preseason projections had the Padres as the second-best team in the majors, but now, it’s much more likely that they’ll miss the postseason entirely than win the division. San Diego squandered the soft part of their schedule—they also were swept by the Rockies this week—and things are only going to get tougher.

Russell Carleton | Baseball Prospectus $: Treating minor leaguers well would only cost each team a few million more every year, but it’s hardly surprising billionaires want to pinch pennies wherever possible. However, this investment looks like it would pay for itself.

Quick Hits

Andrew Benintendi threw out the would-be tying run to end the game.

Shohei Ohtani threw eight innings of one-run ball and hit his 40th homer of the season.

Freddie Freeman hit for the cycle.
