Aaron Nola allowed two earned runs, five hits and four walks with nine strikeouts over seven innings in a win Tuesday at Seattle.

Nola threw 67 of his 113 pitches for strikes. He has lowered his ERA from 4.76 to 4.13 with a pair of wins and quality starts over his past two outings. He has really turned up the intensity in June, going 3-2 with a 3.24 ERA over five outings with 11 walks and 35 strikeouts across 33 1/3 innings.

Trevor Cahill (shoulder) will make his second minor-league rehab start with Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday, manager Andy Green said.

Cahill allowed four runs - two earned - with three strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings in his first rehab assignment with Class A Lake Elsinore on June 22. It's uncertain how many rehab starts he'll need before returning to the big club, but it's reasonable to expect the team will not push him to return until after the All-Star break.

Carlos Asuaje collected a single and a double over three at-bats Tuesday against Atlanta, and he also drew a walk.

Asuaje has a pair of multi-hit performances over his past three games. However, it wasn't all rosy in Tuesday's outing, as he posted his first error on a throw. The middle infielder should see semi-frequent playing time until veteran Yangervis Solarte (oblique) is ready to return from the 10-day disabled list.

Manuel Margot (calf) was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts in his return to the lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Margot didn't hit very well during his minor-league rehab assignment and he obviously showed quite a bit of rust in his first game back. It's a good idea for fantasy owners to keep him reserved until he can start to show his pre-injury consistency at the dish.

Jhoulys Chacin allowed two earned runs, seven hits and a walk across seven innings in a loss against the Braves on Tuesday.

Chacin struck out four batters in the 99-pitch quality start, lowering his ERA for the fifth consecutive outing. After a shaky first couple of months Chacin is hitting his stride in June, posting five quality starts in five outings with an impressive 3.00 ERA and 27 strikeouts to just 10 walks over 33 innings.
Jun 28 - 2:06 AM

Ender Inciarte finished 1-for-3 with a single, walk and run scored in Tuesday's game at San Diego to push his hitting streak to nine games.

Inciarte is hitting .405 (15-for-37) with seven runs scored during the impressive run. He'll look to make it 10 straight games in Wednesday's outing against Luis Perdomo (2-4, 4.56 ERA). Since the start of the 2014 season Inciarte is hitting .350 (28-for-80) at Petco Park, his highest average of any park in the majors with at least 25 at-bats during the span.

Jim Johnson worked around a single and walk allowed in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday in San Diego for his 16th save of the season.

Johnson needed 22 pitches to make it through the frame, but he was able to strike out the side to get out of trouble. He has struck out five batters over his past two scoreless innings after a rough patch against the Giants last week. It appears he has ironed things out and is back on track.
Jun 28 - 1:56 AM

Sean Newcomb scattered six hits with a walk over six scoreless innings while striking out eight batters in a victory in San Diego on Tuesday.

Newcomb threw 68 of his 103 pitches for strikes to earn his first major league victory. He made his debut on June 10 and has been masterful through four starts, posting a minuscule 1.48 ERA. The Braves look like they made a wise trade when they shipped Andrelton Simmons to the Angels for the southpaw.
