Cesar Hernandez went 2-for-4 and smacked a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Reds.

His first-inning longball off starter Bronson Arroyo was the first of three solo dingers the Phillies would launch against Arroyo in the game. Hernandez has a .293 batting average with five home runs and 12 RBI. His 35 runs scored rank seventh in the majors.

Zack Cozart went 4-for-4 with a walk and a two-run homer but the Reds still lost to the Phillies on Saturday.

After Billy Hamilton led off the gave with a bunt single and stolen base, Cozart drilled a Jerad Eickhoff pitch over the left field wall to give the Reds an early lead. Cozart also doubled in the game and reached base in all five of his opportunities. He is wielding a potent bat his season, slashing .355/.433/.592 with five homers, 27 runs and 25 RBI. The 31-year-old has never hit this well for a full season so he is bound to cool down at some point. He is likely to be traded to a contender at some point this summer.

Jarrett Parker (shoulder) took on-field batting practice on Saturday.

Parker was also seen running the bases and making throws in the outfield. The Giants are hoping he'll be back in about two weeks, which is around the time he'll be eligible to come off the 60-day DL. Parker broke his collarbone running into the left field wall for a catch earlier this year.

Red Sox optioned LHP Brian Johnson to Triple-A Pawtucket.

That's life in the big leagues for you. Less than an hour after hurling nine shutout innings in a win over the Mariners, Johnson is already on his way back to the minors. The Red Sox have a full rotation with David Price due back on Monday but Johnson should see the mound at Fenway again at some point this summer.

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 and drove in a run with a double during Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

He drove in Eugenio Suarez with a double in the sixth inning that tied the game at 3-3. It was a score that held until the Phillies walked off in the bottom of the ninth. Gennett has made the most of his limited playing time in his first season as a Red, batting .315/.344/.522 with three homers and 18 RBI in 92 at-bats.

Jameson Taillon (cancer) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Altoona on Sunday.

May 27 - 7:21 PM

Christian Arroyo is not in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

He'll be spelled at third base by Aaron Hill, who is batting in the No. 6 hole against Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz. Arroyo held his own for a while after getting called up to the big leagues last month but is now hitless in his last 21 at-bats. He could be looking at a minor league demotion if he doesn't turn things around quickly.

Bronson Arroyo allowed three solo home runs in five innings of work against the Phillies on Saturday.

All told he gave up three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four in the ballgame. He has given up 18 home runs in 10 starts and is on pace to break the all-time record of 50 homers allowed in a season (Bert Blyleven in 1986). Arroyo allowed 46 homers in 2011. The last seven runs he has allowed have all come on solo home runs. The 40-year-old has a 6.62 ERA in 51 2/3 innings. The Reds will keep running him out there because they need him to eat innings so badly due to multiple injuries in their starting rotation.
