Jason Heyward hit his second home run of the season in Friday's win over the Brewers.

The third inning home run off of Matt Garza would be Heyward's only hit, as he finished 1-for-5. Heyward has struggled with his new team, but he's shown signs of life over the last three games, recording hits in each of them. He'll have to continue the recent trend if he wants to continue hitting second. Outside of a 27-homer campaign in 2012, Heyward has never hit more than 18 home runs in a season.

Ryan Braun went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Braun also struck out twice. The former MVP has yet to hit anything other than a single. With 58 at-bats in the books, the small sample size is growing larger day-by-day. Braun's slashing just .241/.279/.293. The extra-base knocks should come eventually, but his days as a middle-of-the-lineup star could be fading.
Apr 25 - 2:20 AM

Jean Segura went 2-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Segura had two singles in the game and is now slashing .302/.333/.398. The Brewers, as a team, managed just five hits. While Segura's putting up decent stats, there's only so much that a relatively light-hitting shortstop can do when everybody around him is struggling. To whit, Segura and Adam Lind are the only two regulars currently hitting over .246.

Robbie Grossman delivered a two-run single in the top of the 11th to help the Astros beat the A's 5-4 on Friday.

This one was completely scoreless for nine innings before the Astros and A's both came through with two runs in the 10th. Grossman's single through the left side of the infield in the 11th made him the hero when he could have easily been a goat; he was swinging at a 3-0 pitch from a pitcher in Eric O'Flaherty who had walked the first two guys he faced and whose only out came on a sac bunt. Plus, Jose Altuve was on deck. Grossman, though, found the hole and knocked in both runners, raising his average from .148 to .179. Fortunately, the Astros went on to add one more run from there, because the A's again came back with two runs, leaving them just a bit short.

Dallas Keuchel was denied a victory after throwing nine scoreless innings Frida against the A's.

The game was still scoreless when the Astros finally came through with two in the top of the 10th. That would have put Keuchel in line for the victory, but Luke Gregerson couldn't nail down the save. Keuchel has given up runs in just one of four starts to date and is sporting a 0.64 ERA. So, maybe he's a little over his head, but he should remain a solid mixed-league starter all year long.

Matt Garza lasted six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Garza surrendered solo home runs to Jason Heyward and Jhonny Peralta, plus an RBI ground-out to Yadier Molina. He struck out six and walked two in the contest. While Garza held the Cardinals in check for the most part, the Brewer offense was unable to muster much of anything against Carlos Martinez and Garza was saddled with the tough-luck loss. Garza's been bad in the early going, posting a 5.16 ERA and a hide-the-children WHIP of 1.72 over 22 2/3 innings. Next up, a date with the Dodgers. That could end up being a very, very bad date.
Apr 25 - 2:04 AM

Luke Gregerson blew his first save Friday after giving up two runs in the 10th against the A's.

Gregerson came in after the Astros scored twice in the top of the inning, but he faltered for the first time this year. Part of the blame goes to Jose Altuve, who should have had Stephen Vogt at first for the final out of the game, except he made a high underhand toss of the wet ball, giving Vogt time to race down the line and beat it out. The two runs Gregerson allowed were the first he's given up this season.
Apr 25 - 2:02 AM

Chad Qualls retired the only batter he faced Friday to pick up his second save against the A's.

Qualls was the third pitcher of the 11th, getting Brett Lawrie to fly out to center to end the game with the tying run on second. It's Qualls' second save in four days, but the Astros won't be replacing Luke Gregerson anytime soon.
