Carlos Martinez was charged with three runs over six frames Friday against the Cubs, taking a no-decision in what turned out to be an 11-4 Cardinals win.

It wasn't one of Martinez's best efforts, as the 10 hits he surrendered was easily a season high (he hadn't given up more than seven base knocks previously) and he struck out only three. The righty was still able to notch a second straight quality start, though. Martinez hasn't been very sharp so far in July with a 5.87 ERA and just 15 whiffs over 23 frames. He'll aim for his first win since mid-June next week at home versus the Rockies.

Jake Arrieta whiffed six while holding the Cardinals to two runs over six innings but took a no-decision Friday.

Arrieta served up a solo homer in the second inning to Randal Grichuk and back-to-back doubles in the third, but the Cards didn't do anything else off of him. He exited with a 3-2 lead and in line for his 10th victory, but the Cubs' bullpen fell apart in the eighth during which St. Louis plated nine runs. Still, it was another nice showing for Arrieta, who boasts a 2.13 ERA in four July outings. He gets the White Sox at home next.
Jul 21 - 6:07 PM

Carl Edwards Jr. was charged with three runs and didn't retire a batter in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Handed the ball in the top of the eighth inning with the Cubs clinging to a one-run lead, Edwards yielded a leadoff double to Matt Carpenter and then walked consecutive batters to load the bases before being pulled. All three runners came around to score, along with six more as the Cubs' bullpen imploded. Hector Rondon also had a particularly rough day, allowed four runs without recording an out. Edwards boasts a 2.82 ERA and has struck out 56 over 38 1/3 innings this season, but walks (24) remain his big bugaboo.

The Brewers have sold Michael Choice's contract to the the Nexen Heroes of the Korea Baseball Organization.

Choice, 27, has hit .241/.330/.447 with nine homers between Double- and Triple-A this season. The former top-100 prospect hasn't panned out and trying his luck overseas probably isn't a bad idea at this point.

Dexter Fowler reached base four times and stole a base in the Cardinals' comeback victory over the Cubs on Friday.

Fowler doubled in a run in the third inning and had a pair of singles. That's in addition to a walk that he drew as part of the Cardinals' nine-run eighth inning that turned a one-run deficit into an eight-run lead. The stolen base was only Fowler's fourth of the season and he's been caught three times, which is disappointing for a guy who swiped 33 bags over the previous two years with the Cubs. The nagging heel issue he's had could be a factor in his running game, and his OBP being down at .336 hasn't helped, either.

Paulo Orlando (shin) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Friday.

Orlando has been out since late May with a fractured shin. He suffered the injury at Triple-A Omaha but was then recalled and added to the 60-day DL in order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Orlando could be optioned back to the minors once he's healthy.
Jul 21 - 5:49 PM

Randal Grichuk ripped a solo home run and added an RBI single in Friday's win over the Cubs.

Grichuk was playing in his first game back from the disabled list and took Jake Arrieta deep in his first trip to the plate. He later contributed and RBI single during the Cardinals' nine-run eighth inning. Grichuk should play every day for the next few days, but Stephen Piscotty (groin) is due back early next week.
Jul 21 - 5:46 PM

Willson Contreras slugged a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Contreras took Carlos Martinez deep in the bottom of the first inning to give the Cubs an early lead. The young catcher has gone deep in two straight games and has belted nine longballs over his last 25 contests.
