Anthony DeSclafani held the Padres to one run in six innings while striking out six but settled for a no-decision on Saturday.
He gave up four hits and two walks. He has yet to lose a game after 10 starts this year. His record holds at 6-0 with a 2.93 ERA in 61 1/3 innings. He has fanned 52 batters and walked only 13. He draws the Pirates on Friday.
Julio Teheran (lat) allowed three runs over five innings in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.
Making his first start since a lat strain forced him to exit his July 22 outing, Teheran gave up five hits and a walk but was saddled with his ninth loss. What's more important is that he seemed to be healthy and ready to roll going forward. That's a good thing for Teheran owners, as the 25-year-old has posted a strong 2.81 ERA and 0.97 WHIP through 21 starts this year. He should be fully up to speed when he meets the Cardinals on Friday.
Adam Rosales led off the home half of the 10th inning with a walk-off home run on Saturday to beat the Reds.
It was his eighth homer of the season in only 146 at-bats. The 33-year-old journeyman is batting only .212 this year, primarily as a pinch-hitter who starts once a week or so. His playing time might receive a slight boost as the Padres sell off players at the trade deadline.
Jeremy Hellickson left Saturday's start against the Braves with a bruised right hand.
Hellickson fouled a ball off his hand in the sixth inning. He came back out to pitch the bottom half of the frame but was lifted after allowing a walk and two hits. Hellickson admitted that it was difficult to grip his curveball after the injury. It's poor timing as Hellickson has been the subject of recent trade rumors, though this injury looks pretty minor.
Alexi Amarista went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Reds.
All three hits were singles. He is batting .269/.324/.290 with zero homers and seven stolen bases in 46 games. He has been optioned and recalled multiple times this year.
Joey Votto continued to rack up hits, adding two more singles in four trips to the plate on Saturday.
Votto has his line up to .284/.418/.493 after a very slow start to the season. He is fourth in the majors in on-base percentage and is likely to be first by season's end.
Hernan Perez went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Brewers to a 5-3 win over the Pirates on Saturday.
Perez, getting a rare start in the third spot in the lineup with Ryan Braun sidelined, took Pirates starter Jameson Taillon deep for a two-run shot in the first inning to set the tone. He tacked on an RBI single in the seventh inning to extend the Brewers' lead. After years of relative obscurity, the 25-year-old is trying to make a name for himself in 2016, batting .283/.308/.444 with seven homers and 16 steals in 66 games.
The Indians and Brewers have reached an agreement on a trade that will send Jonathan Lucroy to Cleveland, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
The parameters of the deal have been set but nothing is official yet. Lucroy would have to waive his no-trade clause to complete the deal, though that shouldn't be a major obstacle as Lucroy has made it clear he wants to play for a contender. Right now, the two sides are exchanging medicals. Per Rosenthal, the Brewers will receive four players from Cleveland including top catching prospect Francisco Mejia. Minor league OF Greg Allen and SS Yu-Cheng Chang will also head to Milwaukee if the deal goes through.
