Ian Desmond had three hits, two of them doubles, Wednesday against the Cubs.
Desmond has a 12-game hitting streak going, though this is his first three-hit game since April 18. He's now hitting .257 and slugging .406. It's the first time his slugging has been up over .400 in a month.
Bryce Harper homered and walked twice Wednesday against the Cubs.
He struck out in his other two plate appearances, so it was all three-true outcomes tonight. For the year, he has 18 homers, 42 walks and 46 strikeouts in 200 plate appearances.
Batting leadoff for the second time this season, Chris Coghlan struck out all three times he was up Wednesday before being removed for a pinch-hitter.
Manager Joe Maddon got in his head to drop Dexter Fowler into the cleanup spot tonight, putting Coghlan and his .290 OBP atop the order. Since it didn't work out, there's a good chance Coghlan will go right back to batting seventh on Friday.
Tuffy Gosewisch left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with a jammed left knee.
Gosewisch likely jammed the knee stretching to touch first base while trying to beat out a throw in the sixth inning. A jammed knee doesn't sound terribly serious, but the Diamondbacks should give a clearer outlook for the backstop by Thursday. Jordan Pacheco will likely fill in at catcher if Gosewisch is forced to miss time.
Tuffy Gosewisch left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent knee injury.
Gosewisch appeared to hurt his left knee trying to beat out a throw to first base. He stayed on the ground beyond first base for a while before leaving with a trainer. Jordan Pacheco replaced Gosewisch, who was 0-for-3 in the game, behind the dish.
Matt Adams is expected to miss 3-4 months with a strained right quad, the team announced Wednesday.
It's still unclear whether he'll require surgery, but either way his season is officially in jeopardy. Mark Reynolds moves into an everyday role with the injury, and the NL Central-leading Cardinals may be forced to look outside the organization for help at some point.
Dillon Gee (groin) allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 6 1/3 innings in his final rehab start with Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday.
Gee allowed just five hits while walking two and striking out four in the outing. He'll rejoin the Mets' rotation next week in San Diego. The club will operate with a six-man rotation for now, meaning nobody will be displaced when Gee returns.
Chris Davis hit two homers, including the game-winning blast, to propel the Orioles past the Astros 5-4 on Wednesday.
Davis connected on a two-run homer against Astros starter Collin McHugh in the fourth inning before launching a game-winning solo shot in the eighth. The multi-homer game was Davis' first this season. Davis is hitting just .216/.293/.464 with 10 homers and 26 RBI in the middle of the Orioles' lineup this season.
