Kendrys Morales went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI in a win over the Cardinals on Friday.
Providing the only offense of the game for either team, Morales connected for a three-run homer in the first inning and added a two-run shot in the third. It was the 13th multi-homer game of his career. After a miserable 2014 season, the 31-year-old is batting .305 with six home runs and an .864 OPS through 41 games. He leads the AL with 37 RBI.
Salvador Perez went 3-for-4 in Friday's win over the Cardinals.
Perez extended his hitting streak to eight games with a pair of singles and a double. The 25-year-old has only walked three times in 153 plate appearances, but it's hard to complain about a catcher who is hitting .302 with five home runs and 22 RBI through 39 games.
Lorenzo Cain was 2-for-4 with two runs scored against the Cardinals on Friday.
Both hits were singles. Cain has slowed down from his red-hot April and has scuffled a bit against right-handed pitchers, but he's currently tied for third in the majors with 31 runs scored.
The Dodgers aren't sure whether Yasmani Grandal suffered a concussion Friday, but he won't play Saturday.
It's possible Grandal will end up on the seven-day concussion DL, but that remains to be seen. A.J. Ellis will catch Saturday.
Matt Carpenter went 3-for-4 with a walk Friday against the Royals.
Carpenter had two singles and a double. The 29-year-old had 19 two-hit games this season coming into Friday's action, but this was his first three-hit game of the year.
Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 and hit a tiebreaking homer off Joaquin Benoit in the eighth inning Friday as the Dodgers beat the Padres 2-1.
That's 11 homers for Pederson, so he's still on pace for right around 40. Of course, he's not going to keep that up, but he's the obvious Rookie of the Year favorite at the moment.
Zack Greinke pitched 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball against the Padres on Friday.
That was good enough to lower Greinke's ERA from 1.52 all of the way down to 1.48. He's allowed exactly one run in eaco of his last four starts.
Manny Machado drove in three runs in Friday's 8-5 win over the Marlins.
Machado went 2-for-5 on the night and knocked in runs with a ground out in the fifth and a two-run double in the eighth. The 22-year-old has shown good patience out of the leadoff spot for the Orioles and owns a solid .285/.346/.472 batting line with six home runs, 19 RBI, seven stolen bases, and 23 runs scored over 39 games. He has all the ingredients of a fantasy stud.
