Luke Weaver fanned eight while allowing three runs over seven innings but took a loss Tuesday against the Royals.

Weaver needed just 88 pitches to navigate through his seven frames even with his eight punchouts, but a couple solo home runs and a two-out RBI double by the light-hitting Alcides Escobar did him in. The young right-hander has rebounded from a rough stretch with three straight good outings. It’s possible Weaver’s rotation spot could be vulnerable when Alex Reyes and Carlos Martinez are back, although he should have at least a couple more outings to prove he belongs. The first one will come in Milwaukee next week.

Alex Gordon went 3-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday in St. Louis.

Gordon took Luke Weaver deep to dead center field in the second inning. The veteran outfielder had followed his unexpected hot streak with a .100/.217/.125 batting line over his previous 12 games before Tuesday's showing. Perhaps this will help get him back on track, but we're not counting on it.

Yairo Munoz singled in all four of his plate appearances in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

This was more batted ball luck than anything else, as Munoz didn't exactly scorch the ball all over the yard. Still, he'll take it after he had two hits in his first 20 at-bats at the major league level. Munoz is the Cardinals' best defensive option at shortstop with Paul DeJong (hand) out, but so far manager Mike Matheny has mostly opted for the more offensive-oriented Jedd Gyorko. Perhaps Munoz will get more chances after his showing Tuesday.

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with three singles Tuesday against the Royals.

Ozuna had a day off Sunday following a five-game hitless streak, but he's reached base three times in each of his last two contests since returning to action. They've all been singles, though, and he hasn't had an extra-base hit since May 11.

Matt Harvey spun six innings of one-run ball against the Pirates on Tuesday in the Reds' 7-2 win.

Harvey had to escape a bases loaded, one-out jam in the first inning and gave up a solo home run to Colin Moran in the fourth. In the other four innings combined he surrendered just an infield single. In three career starts at Great American Ball Park, Harvey now holds a 1.77 ERA and 19/3 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings. Harvey wasn’t great his last time out but now holds a 2.57 ERA over his first three starts as a Red. His next outing will come at Coors Field.

Jameson Taillon was touched up for six runs over six frames in Tuesday’s loss to the Reds.

Taillon struck out eight batters and walked only one, but he gave up eight hits and five of them went for extra bases. The big blow was a grand slam off the bat of Scooter Gennett in the fifth inning. Taillon just can’t seem to put together a good extended stretch, as he’s had dominant outings this season but also a handful of clunkers. He’ll take a disappointing 4.56 ERA into Sunday’s start versus the Cardinals.

Scooter Gennett smashed a grand slam and drove in six runs in the Reds' win over the Pirates on Tuesday.

It's his first grand slam this season after he ripped an improbable four grand slams last year. Gennett also had an RBI double and a sacrifice fly. He's hit six home runs over his last 13 games after clubbing just two homers over his first 34 contests. Gennett was looking droppable after suffering a shoulder injury earlier this month, but his batting line is now up to .324/.358/.528 after his hot streak.
May 22 - 11:46 PM

Matt Boyd (oblique) expects to make his next scheduled start.

Boyd left Tuesday night's game against the Twins after feeling some spasming around his left oblique in the bottom of the fifth inning. He tried to talk manager Ron Gardenhire into keeping him in, but Boyd had walked two straight batters (after throwing four scoreless frames to begin the evening) and Gardenhire decided to play it safe. Boyd holds a 3.29 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 41/17 K/BB ratio in 52 innings (nine starts) this season. He's lined up to face the Angels at home next Monday.
