Lane Adams hit a three-run home run, the first homer of his career, in Thursday's win over the Giants.

What appeared to be insurance runs in the fifth inning turned out to be an important jack as the Braves needed every one of their 12 runs to hold on for the win. Adams was never really a power hitter in the minors but did run into 73 in his nine seasons in the minors, so there could be some more power there now that he's got the first one out of the way. Even if he does, the 27-year-old is a situational journeyman who will stay that way on a team full of better offensive options.

Joe Panik went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a loss to the Braves on Thursday.

The homer was his fifth of the year, three of which have come since June 8. That's a theme with the second baseman -- after a strong April and an abysmal May, Panik is now hitting .371 in June with the three homers, nine RBI and nine runs scored. The hot stretch has his line up to a much more palatable .275/.338/.414 overall.

Jaime Garcia allowed six runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Giants.

In a battle to see which starter could be worse, Garcia actually had the upper hand on Giants starter Matt Cain for much of the night. The southpaw gave up two homers on the evening, and the Giants also clubbed four doubles off Garcia before he exited. The only saving grace was the fact that the Braves racked up 12 runs, and then held on late, to earn the win and leave Garcia's disastrous outing as a footnote. Through 14 starts, the 30-year-old is 2-5 with a decent 4.03 ERA that was almost a full run better before his last two turns in the rotation. A date with the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday should cure what ails for the lefty.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, a grand slam and six total RBI in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Tigers.

Entering action on Thursday, Cano had not homered since June 6. He put that dry spell to bed in high style, connecting first for a two-run home run off Daniel Norris in the second inning. He proceeded to top himself with a just-got-enough-of-it grand slam to center in the seventh to give the M's an insurmountable 9-3 lead. For the season, the veteran second baseman boasts a .284/.343/.482 triple-slash, 13 homers and 48 RBI in 257 at-bats.
Jun 23 - 1:21 AM

Ben Gamel went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

Gamel got the Mariners on the board with a two-run double off Daniel Norris in the second inning. That double kept alive a hitting streak which now stands at 14 games. Beyond that hitting streak, Gamel has picked up knocks in 23 of his last 24 contests. He is slashing .352/.411/.487 with three homers and 24 RBI in 52 games played for the season as a whole.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

After Robinson Cano cracked a grand slam to give the Mariners a 9-3 lead through seven innings, the Tigers at least tried to make a game of it. Cabrera pulled them to within four with his two-run homer in the eighth and they would score one more of the frame to draw to within a manageable 9-6 deficit. However, they would draw no closer. Cabrera has now gone deep in three of his last eight games. On the macro level, he is hitting to a .271/.370/.450 triple-slash with eight homers and 34 RBI across 218 at-bats.
Jun 23 - 1:17 AM

Matt Cain allowed seven runs on 10 hits -- including three home runs -- over four innings in Thursday's loss to the Braves.

Thursday was the sixth time in his last 10 starts that Cain has allowed nine or more hits, and he's now given up 12 homers in 15 starts overall. On May 15, Cain was 3-1 with a 4.04 ERA; through Thursday, the right-hander is 3-7 with a 5.54 ERA. This is simply a case of time catching up to the 32-year-old. The Giants are still paying him $21 million this season, though, and with few hopes for postseason play the team doesn't need to find a better option if one isn't readily available. The Rockies are the next team with a chance to feed on Cain when the two sides meet up Tuesday.

Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, two total RBI and a steal in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

Kinsler gave Mariners rookie starter Andrew Moore his first sting of the major league home run ball, cracking a solo shot off the right-hander in the third inning. The veteran second baseman has now homered in three consecutive games and has hit safely in nine of his last 10. In that 10-game space, seven of his 11 hits have gone for extra bases. Overall, Kinsler is hitting .254/.343/.420 with eight homers, 19 RBI and six steals in 57 games. A hamstring injury cost him about two weeks earlier this season, hence the slightly depressed number of games played.
