Matt Kemp went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Kemp's single was one of just three that Padres compiled as a team, and the only one to do any damage, as it brought a run home against Lance Lynn in the sixth inning. That run would be the only one scored in the losing effort. Kemp's currently posting the worst batting average of his career and is hitting just .241/.282/.359 with six homers and 42 RBI. Last season, he slashed .287/.346/.506 for the Dodgers.

Tigers recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Toledo.

While Krol owns a spectacular 0.89 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 22/9 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings at Triple-A, he simply has not been able to get the job done at the big league level this season. He'll work in middle relief for the Tigers.

Rangers manager Jeff Bannister said Sunday that the team has not considered placing Josh Hamilton (groin) on the disabled list.

Hamilton is considered day-to-day with a groin strain. He underwent a precautionary MRI on Saturday that appears to have confirmed there was no serious ailment, and the slugger should be able to rejoin the Rangers lineup in a couple of days.

Marlins RHP prospect Jose Urena threw a shutout Saturday in his return to Triple-A New Orleans.

He was optioned to New Orleans Thursday to make room for Jose Fernandez. Urena allowed just five hits and one walk over nine brilliant innings. The 23-year-old hasn't been a big strikeout pitcher this season (26 Ks in 46 1/3 minor league innings) but he's held opponents to a paltry .221 average in 163 at-bats. He should get another chance with the Marlins later this year.

Lance Lynn turned in a superb game in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Padres, fanning eight and allowing just one run over seven innings.

The Padres managed just three hits off of Lynn, all singles. A Matt Kemp RBI single in the third inning was the only smudge on his line. With a 2.53 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 97/30 K/BB ratio over 92 1/3 innings, Lynn's numbers are among the best in the NL. He'll try to keep things moving in the right direction when he faces the Pirates in a road start next time he toes the rubber.
Jul 5 - 4:59 PM

Tigers optioned RHP Drew VerHagen to Triple-A Toledo.

The young right-hander struggled in Sunday's outing against the Blue Jays, allowing a pair of runs and walking four in his lone inning of work. The Tigers will continue to audition any live arms that they can find as struggle to find consistent performers in their bullpen.
Jul 5 - 4:58 PM

Cole Hamels took a no-decision despite tossing seven shutout innings, as the Phillies needed 10 innings to earn a 4-0 win against the Braves on Sunday.

Hamels may not have won, but at least the Phillies' six-game losing streak was snapped. The lefty limited the Braves to six hits while striking out six and issuing zero walks. Hamels hasn't won since May 23, but has a 3.02 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and a 119/35 K/BB ratio in 113 1/3 innings. He'll toe the rubber in San Francisco against the Giants in his next outing.
Jul 5 - 4:57 PM

Ian Kennedy was saddled with the loss in Sunday's showdown with the Cardinals after allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings pitched.

Kennedy pitched well and struck out four without walking a batter, but he was done in by Tommy Phan, whose bat accounted for a two-run homer in the third and an RBI double in the sixth. Kennedy now holds a 4.84 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 74/23 K/BB ratio. He's a better pitcher than that ERA, but has yet to show any kind of sustained consistency. He'll try to improve off this quality start when he takes the ball on a road date with the Rangers next weekend.
