Lance Lynn held the Pirates to two runs in 6 2/3 innings to pick up his 10th win Wednesday.

It looked like Lynn would be done when he was hurt on a diving attempt at a popped up bunt in the seventh. He missed the ball, giving the Pirates two on with none out, and he was at 109 pitches anyway. However, he stayed in after a couple of warm up pitches and induced a double play ball from pinch-hitter Matt Hague. He was then replaced by Randy Choate, who got Gregory Polanco to end the frame. The Cards bullpen finished up from there. Lynn is 10-6 with a 3.14 ERA.

Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth against the Pirates for his 27th save on Wednesday.

Rosenthal got some help from Peter Bourjos, who made a nice jumping catch at the wall in center to rob Russell Martin of at least an RBI double and end the game. Rosenthal has pitched back-to-back scoreless innings since blowing a save Saturday. He's hardly been a shutdown closer this year, but with 27 saves in 31 chances, he's gotten the job done.

Brandon Cumpton was tagged for four runs and nine hits in 3 1/3 innings by the Cardinals on Monday.

Even if Cumpton went seven scoreless tonight, the plan appeared to be to send him down after the game. With Francisco Liriano returning, Cumpton probably won't go right back into the rotation after the All-Star break.

Kolten Wong homered again Wednesday and walked twice as the Cardinals' No. 2 hitter.

Wong has three homers in four games and four overall in 170 at-bats this season. He also stole his 10th base in 11 attempts. As long as the Cardinals don't intend to hit him eighth regularly, he seems ready to be a useful middle-infield option in mixed leagues.

Reds manager Bryan Price said he doesn't believe Brandon Phillips' left thumb injury to be "brutal."

"We'll do due diligence to get much more depth on the injury," Price said. "It can be more significant than we believe it is and hope it is as this point in time. But right now, the initial signs are it's not a brutal injury and we can have him back sooner than later." Phillips appeared to be in some pain when he got the thumb caught while diving for a ball in the eighth inning, and he was seen leaving the clubhouse with a brace on the thumb after the game. More should be known about his outlook in the coming days.

Robbie Grossman went 4-for-5 with a homer and a double as the Astros beat the Rangers 8-4 on Wednesday.

Grossman, who was just recalled Tuesday after a couple of weeks back in Triple-A, snapped an 0-for-28 slump that dated back to June 9. He'll get a few more starts this week with Dexter Fowler and Alex Presley out, but he might not be much of a factor afterwards.

Dallas Keuchel pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed four runs Wednesday in a win over the Rangers.

Keuchel got the win, but it was another start that didn't measure up to his performances prior to his wrist injury. He struck out three and walked one against a mediocre offense tonight, and if not for a couple of nice plays from Enrique Hernandez, the outing could have gone considerably worse. How much the wrist was a factor is hard to say, but it remains a source of concern.
Jul 9 - 11:39 PM

Yu Darvish turned in a rocky start against the Astros on Wednesday, giving up six runs and 10 hits in six innings.

This makes four times in five starts and five times in seven that Darvish has given up at least four runs. He's still striking out plenty of batters, and while the walks have been up, that wasn't a factor tonight. Instead, he was just hit harder than practically any other time in his career. It's the second time in 78 major league starts that he's given up 10 hits and the second time he's given up at least five extra-base hits (he allowed six).
