Adam Wainwright allowed five runs on seven hits over three innings Thursday against the Pirates.

Wainwright just had nothing, struggling to touch high-80s with his fastball, and the Bucs teed off accordingly. He's now recorded just one strikeout in his last three starts combined, and he hasn't fanned more than three in a single start since July 8. The warning signs are everywhere. In 23 starts overall, the 35-year-old is 12-5 with a 5.12 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. He'll look for some more encouraging signs Wednesday against the Padres.

Edwin Jackson surrendered one run on eight hits over seven innings in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Jackson has been surprisingly reliable in seven starts this season, having allowed two or fewer runs in five of them. In Thursday's contest, the well-traveled veteran kept the scoreboard clean outside of a third-inning RBI single by Jose Pirela. He struck out four and walked one over his seven innings of work. Jackson will bring a sharp 2.92 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into a road outing against the Astros next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 18 - 1:18 AM

Jhoulys Chacin was unable to find the plate in Thursday's loss to the Nationals, walking four while allowing one run over five innings.

Chacin surrendered just three hits and one run -- on an Adam Lind sacrifice fly in the third inning -- but control issues forced him to an early exit after five innings. He threw just 63 of his 104 pitches for strikes. Chacin has walked four batters in each of his last two starts and has handed out at least three free passes in six of his last 10 outings. He will carry a 3.98 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into a road showdown with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 18 - 1:17 AM

Jarrett Parker went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

Parker gave the Giants a 4-1 lead with his two-run double off Aaron Nola in the fifth inning. With his pair of two-baggers, he has now collected seven doubles in 22 games played this season. He is working to a .268/.307/.437 triple slash in that space.
Aug 18 - 1:16 AM

Sam Dyson recorded his 10th save of the season via a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

With the Giants holding a 5-4 advantage entering the ninth, Dyson recorded the first two outs without issue before losing a touch of command. He walked Andres Blanco and fell behind Cesar Hernandez before coming back to strike him out looking to end the contest. Dyson has been money with the Giants, especially of late -- he has not allowed a hit in any of his last four appearances. Since the Rangers traded him over to the National League, the reliever owns a 2.05 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 21/12 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 frames. He is 10-for-11 in save chances since putting on the San Francisco uniform.
Aug 18 - 1:15 AM

Nick Williams went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Williams socked a solo home run off Jeff Samardzija to lead off what ended as a three-run sixth for the Phillies. The dinger was his sixth of the season and bumped his RBI tally to 25. The 23-year-old outfielder has collected at least one hit in eight of his last 10 games and is slashing .298/.348/.507 through his first 148 major league at-bats.
Aug 18 - 1:07 AM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Galvis struck out in his other two at-bats. For the campaign as a whole, the 27-year-old shortstop is slashing .258/.308/.413 with 11 homers, 39 RBI and 10 steals in 119 games.
Aug 18 - 1:06 AM

Jeff Samardzija surrendered four runs on eight hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

Samardzija struck out six and walked one on the evening. He coughed up a pair of solo home runs, too, with Cameron Rupp and Nick Williams taking him deep in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively. Up next on the docket for the veteran right-hander, a home start against the Brewers. Samardzija will carry a 4.79 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into that one.
