Baez departed Sunday's gmae against the Cardinals after he was hit by a pitch in his left elbow. The 25-year-old infielder sat afterwards that he was good and that he isn't sure if he'll even need an X-ray to check for structural damage. Consider him day-to-day.

Carpenter's solo blast off of Brian Duensing increased the Cardinals' lead to 3-0 in the seventh inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. The 32-year-old is now hitting .232/.332/.433 with 10 long balls and 26 RBI.

The right-hander racked up seven strikeouts on the night. The only thing that he didn't do well in this one, was be efficient with his pitches, needing 97 pitches (52 strikes) to get through his five frames. Through 10 starts with the Cardinals, he's now 4-2 with an outstanding 2.66 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 55/14 K/BB ratio across 50 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep it rolling in a difficult matchup against the Brewers in Milwaukee on Friday.

Brad Boxberger was hammered for four earned runs, four hits and a walk while retiring just two batters in a loss Sunday against the Mets.

Boxberger entered the game with a 3-1 lead but he served up homers to Brandon Nimmo and Asdrubal Cabrera back-to-back in the ninth inning to turn a home win into a loss. He slipped to 1-3, blowing his third save in 19 opportunities. His ERA has increased from 1.77 to 3.91, so he could be skating on a little bit of thin ice here. Boxberger has coughed up seven earned runs in just 5 1/3 June innings.
