Jeff Locke yielded three runs over five innings in Friday's 5-4 win over the Reds.

All three runs scored in the second inning, including a two-run homer from Ivan De Jesus Jr. All told, Locke allowed five hits and three while while striking out five batters. He improve to 6-6 with the win and now owns a 4.21 ERA and 88/44 K/BB ratio over 113 1/3 innings this season. His spot in the rotation should be safe at least until A.J. Burnett comes off the disabled list, so he lines up for a start against the Cubs next week.

Michael Lorenzen was charged with five runs in 5 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Pirates.

Lorenzen was pulled with the bases loaded in the sixth and two of the baserunners eventually came around to score. He struck out six and walked three and has now lost each of his last four decisions. With a mediocre 4.80 ERA and 59/47 K/BB ratio over 84 1/3 innings this season, his spot in the starting rotation could be vulnerable.
Jul 31 - 10:33 PM

Mark Melancon worked around trouble Friday against the Reds for his major league-leading 33rd save of the season.

It wasn't without some drama, as Melancon allowed two hits and a single in the inning. Really, the save should go to Starling Marte, who threw out Brandon Phillips at home plate for the second out before making a diving catch to end it. Melancon hasn't allowed an earned run in 33 consecutive appearances and owns a stingy 1.29 ERA on the year.
Jul 31 - 10:33 PM

David Buchanan picked up his second victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Braves to three runs on eight hits over 7 1/3 innings.

He punched out four and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame.Buchanan held the Braves scoreless through the first six innings in his return to the big leagues but seemed to tire late. He has a golden opportunity to lock down a spot in the Phillies rotation for the remainder of the season and will look to further improve upon his 6.44 ERA when he takes on the Dodgers on Thursday.
Jul 31 - 10:32 PM

Andrew McCutchen slugged a solo homer Friday against the Reds.

McCutchen tied the game in the fifth before the Pirates took the lead for good in the sixth. The 28-year-old has gone deep three times in the last eight games and now has 15 homers and 66 RBI to go along with a .294/.387/.497 batting line.
Jul 31 - 10:31 PM

Jung Ho Kang went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Reds.

Kang had two doubles on the night. He continues to swing and incredibly hot bat, hitting .435 (27-for-62) over his last 17 games. His batting average is now up to .299 on the year.
Jul 31 - 10:30 PM

Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored Friday against the Pirates.

Byrd has gone deep in back-to-back games and now has 18 homers and a .777 OPS on the year. It's a bit surprising he wasn't moved by Friday's non-waiver trade deadline, but there's still a chance a deal could happen in August.
Jul 31 - 10:30 PM

Freddie Freeman belted his 14th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday.

The Phillies jumped out to an early 9-0 lead in this one, and Freeman's two-run shot in the eighth merely made it a 9-3 ballgame. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .288/.354/.509 to go along with 14 bombs and 45 RBI.
