With the non-waiver trade deadline approaching, the Baltimore Orioles appear poised to be buyers instead of sellers. Chris Davis homered twice and drove in five runs, and Baltimore cruised past the Atlanta Braves 7-3 on Tuesday night for its fourth straight victory. Davis will become a free agent after this season, and when the Orioles were slumping not long ago there was speculation that the slugger might be traded before July 31.

Take a look around the league with Big League Stew’s daily wrap up. We’ll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. Kris Bryant, the much-heralded Chicago Cubs rookie, has experienced a number of firsts this season. But Monday night might have been most thrilling of them. Bryant crushed a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth, erasing a one-run deficit and giving the Cubs a 9-8 victory over the Colorado Rockies. [ Play a Daily Fantasy contest for cash today! ] Yep, the ol’ walk-off homer. It was the first of Bryant’s young career, and as you can see, he and his teammates made the moment memorable. The Wrigley Field crowd, of course, loved every second too. “The last three or four games, I’ve hit five or six to the warning track and that’s obviously frustrating,” Bryant told reporters after the game . “I believe in baseball gods and I believe they pay you back, and I guess I got one today. It worked out for us. It was a really good win, that’s for sure.”

Cardinals rookie Stephen Piscotty was pleased with how he handled his first major league start at Busch Stadium. Atlanta used seven strong innings from rookie right-hander Matt Wisler and a tiebreaking homer in the seventh from rookie third baseman Adonis Garcia to avoid a three-game sweep against the team with the majors’ best record. Given his chance a few days later, the 24-year-old out of Stanford showed why he entered the season as the Cardinals’ top prospect.

The Oakland Athletics have lost four in a row and already traded one of their top pitchers when they sent Scott Kazmir to Houston. It’s been over a half-century since an entire league was within nine games of a postseason spot at this point in the year, and what’s happening in the AL speaks not only to the effect of an extra wild card – but also to a level of parity that has become the norm in baseball in recent years. On the morning of July 27, 1958, the entire eight-team National League was within 8 1/2 games of first place, according to STATS LLC.
