Clayton Richard was hurt by the home run ball Tuesday in St. Louis, serving up three in a no-decision in the Padres' 12-4 win.

Richard cruised through the first three innings, but Jedd Gyorko swatted a two-out, two-run homer and then Stephen Piscotty went back-to-back with a blast of his own. The lefty then served up a game-tying dinger to Yadier Molina in the sixth and was lifted. Richard has been victimized often by homer this season, but he actually entered Tuesday’s outing having not given up any in his previous three starts. He’ll get the Marlins in Miami on Sunday.

Lance Lynn gave up four runs over six innings of work in Tuesday’s no-decision versus the Padres.

Lynn got in trouble in the third inning when he hit pitcher Clayton Richard with a pitch to lead off the frame. He also hit Jose Pirela with a pitch following a single and Yangervis Solarte then cleared the bases with a double. Solarte got Lynn again in the fifth with another RBI two-bagger. Remarkably, it’s the first time since June that Lynn has allowed more than two runs in a start. He’ll face the Rays at home Sunday.

Yangervis Solarte had a monster night at the dish Tuesday in St. Louis, homering and doubling twice as part of a six-RBI showing.

Solarte got the scoring going with a bases-clearing double in the third inning off of Lance Lynn, and he got to Lynn again in the fifth with another RBI double. The infielder capped off his night with a mammoth two-run blast off of Josh Lucas in the eighth that went an estimated 455 feet. Solarte has gone deep in two of his last three contests.

Austin Hedges singled and belted a three-run homer Tuesday in St. Louis.

Hedges' blast to left field in the seventh just cleared the wall and officially broke the game open. He's put up a lowly .219 average and .256 on-base percentage, but Hedges has been adequate enough for fantasy owners with his 16 longballs.

Yadier Molina reached base three times and blasted his 15th home run of the season Tuesday versus the Padres.

Molina walked in the second, doubled and scored in the fourth and bombed a game-tying homer in the sixth. The Padres' offense took over from there, and Yadi was pulled in favor of Carson Kelly at that point. He's certainly out of place as a No. 5 hitter, but Molina has had a fine offensive season for a catcher with a .282/.316/.446 line and 15 taters.

Stephen Piscotty reached base three times and smacked a solo homer in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

Piscotty hit the second of back-to-back shot in the fourth inning, as he followed Jedd Gyorko's bomb with one of his own that tied the game at the time. He's started both games since his recall and has reached base six times. Piscotty will need to keep hitting in order to play over Randal Grichuk, but we'd rather have him out of the two down the stretch.

Doug Fister turned back the clock Tuesday, spinning a one-hit complete game in the Red Sox' 9-1 win over the Indians.

Fister entered the night with a 5.56 ERA on the season and was roughed up by the same Indians in his last start. He permitted 11 baserunners over just 4 1/3 frames in that outing last week but yielded only the one hit and a couple walks in an unexpected gem Tuesday, shutting down the Tribe's offense after Francisco Lindor led off the bottom of the first with a home run. It's Fister's first complete game in three seasons. Fister will take on the Orioles at Fenway on Sunday and it's hard to trust him as a fantasy option even after his beauty Tuesday.
Aug 23 - 12:10 AM

Carlos Carrasco was popped for six runs over 6 2/3 frames in Tuesday’s loss to the Red Sox.

Carrasco struck out six and just walked one batter, but he gave up eight hits, including a home run. The eight base knocks are the second-most he’s permitted this season. Carrasco has now allowed 11 runs in two starts against the Red Sox this month in the only two times he’s faced them this season. He’ll try to get back on track on Sunday versus the Royals at home.
