Jacob Turner earned his third win after limiting the Braves to two runs over five innings as the Marlins went on to a 6-5 victory on Tuesday.

Turner was making his first start since June 11. He had been working out of the bullpen, but his struggles followed him there. The Marlins hope Tuesday's start is the turning over of a new leaf, as Turner held the Braves to four hits and two walks while striking out four. He carries an ugly 6.03 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and 48/19 K/BB ratio. Turner will take on the Astros in Houston when he takes the mound next.

X-rays on Zack Cozart's index and middle finger came back negative.

Cozart had to exit Tuesday's game versus the Brewers after being hit by a pitch. Consider him day-to-day.

Arismendy Alcantara hit his second home run of the season in a win over the Padres on Tuesday.

Alcantara and Anthony Rizzo went back-to-back off Padres reliever Blaine Boyer in the seventh inning. It was Alcantara's only hit in four at-bats on the night. The 22-year-old, who has split time between second base and center field thus far in his big league career, is hitting .282/.326/.590 through his first nine games and has found different ways to contribute in nearly every game. He's an exciting talent, and with the Cubs designating Darwin Barney for assignment Tuesday, he appears to be in Chicago to stay.

Mike Minor left the game without recording an out in the fourth inning against the Marlins, taking his sixth loss after allowing six runs in three-plus innings on Tuesday.

Minor's struggles continued on Tuesday, as the Marlins banged out 10 hits and drew two walks en route to a win. The lefty allowed the first three batters he faced in the fourth inning to reach base (double, single, ground-rule double) before manager Fredi Gonzalez replaced him with David Hale. Minor struck out only one in the effort, and his ERA went up to 5.32. There is good news for Minor's dwindling fantasy owners, however: he'll face the Padres' frail offense at home in his next start on Sunday.

Curtis Granderson didn't start Tuesday's game against the Mariners due to an illness.

"He came in and said, 'I don't think I can go,'" Mets manager Terry Collins said of Granderson. "He's been sick since midnight. We've got him on fluids and he'll be unavailable." The Mets are hopeful that Granderson will be ready to go on Wednesday.

Justin Ruggiano went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Ruggiano got the Cubs on the board in the first inning with a sacrifice fly, and he later delivered an RBI single. The outfielder, who missed a significant portion of the first half with a hamstring strain, is now hitting .291/.357/.442 with 22 RBI and 23 runs scored in 58 games.

Steve Cishek worked around a lead-off single in the ninth inning to convert his 23rd save as the Marlins defeated the Braves on Tuesday.

Chris Johnson led off with a single and was pinch-run for by Jordan Schafer, but Schafer was caught stealing. Cishek then struck out Andrelton Simmons and Ryan Doumit to end the contest. The closer has had a few bumpy games over the last few weeks which significantly inflated his ERA, but he has otherwise had a great season. He carries a 3.40 ERA and a 51/14 K/BB ratio while converting 23 of 26 save opportunities.

Kyle Hendricks limited the Padres to five hits over seven shutout innings in a win on Tuesday.

In just his second big league start, Hendricks shut down an impotent Padres offense for his first career victory. The right-hander walked three while striking out five. Hendricks pitched well enough to earn a longer look, and his next start will likely come this weekend against the Cardinals.
