Steven Matz surrendered three runs on three hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Matz did a nice job of limiting the hits and runs, but this was far from a crisp outing. While he did strike out eight over six innings, he also walked five and surrendered a pair of homers -- Justin Turner (solo shot) and Kike Hernandez (two-run shot) both burned him in the third inning. He will bring a 3.60 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into a road start against the Marlins next time he toes the rubber. On the whole, he has pitched well enough in his first three starts of the season after missing the first two months of the campaign working through an elbow injury.

Nick Markakis went 4-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored to help the Braves hold on for a 12-11 win over the Giants on Thursday.

Markakis took Giants starter Matt Cain deep in the first inning for a two-run blast, just his third of the season. It kicked off the scoring in a game that would see 23 runs scored on 31 hits. Markakis himself picked up three more singles along the way, raising his line to .296/.374/.394 on the year. The 33-year-old has 41 RBI and 37 runs scored in 72 games as the Braves' primary right fielder.

Buster Posey was an extra-base hit machine Thursday, finishing 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a loss to the Braves.

Posey has always had a penchant for hitting left-handed pitching and feasted on Braves starter Jaime Garcia in this one, hitting a solo homer in the second and smacking two doubles off the southpaw before Garcia could be relieved. The homer was Posey's 10th of the season, the sixth straight year the backstop has reached double-digits in dingers. Quietly, the 30-year-old is having a remarkable offensive year this season, batting .344/.427/.537 through 63 games.
Jun 23 - 1:37 AM

Lane Adams hit a three-run home run, the first homer of his career, in Thursday's win over the Giants.

What appeared to be insurance runs in the fifth inning turned out to be an important jack as the Braves needed every one of their 12 runs to hold on for the win. Adams was never really a power hitter in the minors but did run into 73 in his nine seasons in the minors, so there could be some more power there now that he's got the first one out of the way. Even if he does, the 27-year-old is a situational journeyman who will stay that way on a team full of better offensive options.

Joe Panik went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a loss to the Braves on Thursday.

The homer was his fifth of the year, three of which have come since June 8. That's a theme with the second baseman -- after a strong April and an abysmal May, Panik is now hitting .371 in June with the three homers, nine RBI and nine runs scored. The hot stretch has his line up to a much more palatable .275/.338/.414 overall.
Jun 23 - 1:26 AM

Jaime Garcia allowed six runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Giants.

In a battle to see which starter could be worse, Garcia actually had the upper hand on Giants starter Matt Cain for much of the night. The southpaw gave up two homers on the evening, and the Giants also clubbed four doubles off Garcia before he exited. The only saving grace was the fact that the Braves racked up 12 runs, and then held on late, to earn the win and leave Garcia's disastrous outing as a footnote. Through 14 starts, the 30-year-old is 2-5 with a decent 4.03 ERA that was almost a full run better before his last two turns in the rotation. A date with the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday should cure what ails for the lefty.
Jun 23 - 1:21 AM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, a grand slam and six total RBI in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Tigers.

Entering action on Thursday, Cano had not homered since June 6. He put that dry spell to bed in high style, connecting first for a two-run home run off Daniel Norris in the second inning. He proceeded to top himself with a just-got-enough-of-it grand slam to center in the seventh to give the M's an insurmountable 9-3 lead. For the season, the veteran second baseman boasts a .284/.343/.482 triple-slash, 13 homers and 48 RBI in 257 at-bats.
Jun 23 - 1:21 AM

Ben Gamel went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

Gamel got the Mariners on the board with a two-run double off Daniel Norris in the second inning. That double kept alive a hitting streak which now stands at 14 games. Beyond that hitting streak, Gamel has picked up knocks in 23 of his last 24 contests. He is slashing .352/.411/.487 with three homers and 24 RBI in 52 games played for the season as a whole.
