Carlos Gomez propelled the Brewers to a huge 11-2 win over the Cardinals on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBI on the day.

Gomez wrapped up an MVP-like first half with a great showing, scoring in the first, fourth and sixth innings. Gomez is among the league leaders in runs, stolen bases, slugging percentage and OPS at the break. He owns a .304/.370/.510 line, with his next start coming in Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Scooter Gennett finished up a strong first half with a good day on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored.

Gennett hit a two-run double in the fourth inning, driving in two of the Brewers' 11 runs. The second baseman is among the National League leaders with a .309 batting average through a surprising first half. Gennett has a .828 OPS to go with seven homers and five stolen bases, and he's definitely a mixed league asset in the second half.

Suk-Min Yoon (shoulder) threw a successful simulated game on Sunday and is close to rejoining Triple-A Norfolk.

The 27-year-old has had a disappointing and injury-riddled season in his first year stateside, registering a 5.76 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 53/15 K/BB ratio over 75 innings at Triple-A Norfolk. He's unlikely to pitch for the Orioles this season.
Jul 13 - 5:31 PM

Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Ramirez had three of the Brewers' 19 hits on the afternoon. The third baseman is enjoying another strong season, collecting 11 home runs and 43 RBI in the first half. He'll carry a .288/.336/.459 line into the second half of the season.
Jul 13 - 5:29 PM

Elian Herrera had a big day on Sunday, going 5-for-5 with three runs scored in a win over the Cardinals.

Filling in for Jean Segura, Herrera had as many hits Sunday as he had in his previous 24 at-bats spanning back to mid-June. The career day raised his batting average from .232 to .276. When Segura returns from the Dominican Republic, where he's tending to some family issues, Herrera will likely find himself back at Triple-A.
Jul 13 - 5:23 PM

Wily Peralta allowed only an unearned run on three hits over seven innings in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

On a day he didn't need to be his finest, Peralta turned in his best start in over two months. The right-hander struck out five without walking a batter, and all three Cardinals hits against him were of the one-base variety. It's a strong finish to a breakout first half for Peralta, who goes into the break with a 10-6 record, 3.72 ERA and 1.29 WHIP.
Jul 13 - 5:17 PM

Carlos Martinez allowed four runs on seven hits over four innings of work in a loss to the Brewers on Sunday.

Martinez had yet to lose as a starter before Sunday, as the loss was his first since May 29. The right-hander didn't have much from the outset, giving up four straight singles to lead off the game. He struck out five while walking three, and he owns a mediocre 4.43 ERA and 1.43 WHIP heading into the All-Star break. How the Cardinals rotation shakes out in the second half is still up in the air, but Martinez seems to be a part of it for now.
Jul 13 - 5:11 PM

Huston Street was named to the National League All-Star team as replacement for teammate Tyson Ross who is pitching on Sunday.

Street is certainly deserving of the honor, as he's having one of the finest season's in his career. The 30-year-old has converted 24 of his 25 save chances while posting a 1.09 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 34/7 K/BB ratio over 33 innings of work.
