Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) went 0-for-2 with a walk and was hit by a pitch in his return to the Brewers' starting lineup on Friday.

Cain was removed from Thursday's game due to a hamstring cramp, but it appears to have been only a minor issue. The 32-year-old outfielder is enjoying a terrific season in his return to Milwaukee, slashing .292/.394/.439 with eight homers, 26 RBI and 16 stolen bases.

Gorkys Hernandez went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Friday's 6-2 setback against the Padres.

Hernandez has come alive lately, going 6-for-14 with three doubles, a home run and five RBI across his past four outings to bump his average back up from .275 to .286. His production in the eight spot recently paid off, as he was batting leadoff in this one. Manager Bruce Bochy will likely continue to lean on him more as long as the outfielder stays hot.

Chris Stratton allowed three runs - two earned - and nine hits with no walks and three strikeouts over six innings in a loss Friday against San Diego.

Stratton threw 68 of his 98 pitches for strikes in the quality start, and he was let down by his defense when battery mate Nick Hundley uncorked an errant throw. Despite the loss he was able to log another quality start. He'll look to get back into the win column Thursday against Jon Gray and the visiting Rockies. He beat the Rockies on May 19 in his first appearance against the divisional rivals.
Jun 23 - 3:36 AM

Manuel Margot went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run scored and two RBI in Friday's 6-2 victory in San Francisco.

That's three consecutive multi-hit games for Margot, who has improved his average from .217 to .245 just since June 11. He is hitting .357 (20-for-56) with six doubles since flipping the calendar from May to June. After a rough start to the season it's nice to see Manuel raking again and helping his fantasy owners.
Jun 23 - 3:31 AM

Clayton Richard allowed two earned runs, three hits and no walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a win Friday at San Francisco.

Richard threw 51 of his 79 pitches for strikes, although he managed just nine first-pitch strikes against the 21 batters he faced. While he got behind in counts, he certainly wiggled his way out of trouble time and again, outdueling the previously red-hot Chris Stratton. Richard will look to continue the solid run Wednesday in Texas opposite Mike Minor.
Jun 23 - 3:26 AM

Albert Pujols finished Friday's 2-1 win against the Blue Jays with a double, a single, a run scored and an RBI across three at-bats.

Pujols has hit safely in six consecutive outings to raise his average from .246 to .254. He also has at least one RBI in four of the past five outings. While he'll never be the feared hitter he was in St. Louis, he is showing some signs of life at the plate after a subpar start to the month.
Jun 23 - 3:23 AM

Blake Parker worked a perfect ninth inning in Friday's 2-1 victory against the Blue Jays to pick up his ninth save.

Parker worked a tidy 11-pitch inning, posting eight strikes while posting first-pitch strikes to all three of the batters he faced. He and Cam Bedrosian worked two perfect innings to preserve the victory for Andrew Heaney, a rare solid performance in the late innings for manager Mike Scioscia's bullpen.
Jun 23 - 3:20 AM

Andrew Heaney allowed one earned run while scattering nine hits with no walks and four strikeouts over seven innings in a win against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Heaney had a hiccup on June 11 in Seattle, but he has managed quality starts in three of his four outings in the month while lowering his ERA from 5.31 to 3.43 since May 2. He has been especially impressive at home, going 4-2 with a 2.18 ERA in seven starts at the Big A over 45 1/3 innings. On the road, he has struggled, going 0-3 with a 5.13 ERA across six road starts. He'll look to exorcise his road demons Wednesday at Fenway Park opposite Rick Porcello.
