Roberto Hernandez pitched eight innings of one-run ball to pick up his sixth win of the season on Friday against the Nationals.

Hernandez was incredibly efficient in his eight innings of work, throwing only 94 pitches. The lack of both strikeouts (three) and walks (one) help to explain that. He gave up an RBI single to Ian Desmond in the second and that was all she wrote. The win moves Hernandez to 6-8 on the season. Hernandez holds a 3.87 ERA. This marks back-to-back starts in which Hernandez has gone seven innings or deeper.

Carlos Gonzalez was removed from Friday's game against the Tigers after aggravating his right ankle sprain.

Gonzalez made a tremendous sliding catch along the right field wall to end the fifth inning, but paid the price for doing so. Consider him day-to-day for now, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him held out on Saturday for precautionary reasons.
Aug 1 - 9:42 PM

Doug Fister tossed seven innings of two-run ball in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday.

Fister was fantastic, but ended up the tough luck loser in this one, as Roberto Hernandez was just a little better. The deciding blow was a sixth inning Marlon Byrd solo home run. Fister allowed six hits, walked two and struck out five. This was the sixth start in his last ten in which he's gone at least seven innings. The loss dropped him to 10-3. He'll take his 2.68 ERA out against the Mets next time around.
Aug 1 - 9:41 PM

Jon Niese allowed five runs (three earned) over eight-plus innings in a loss to the Giants on Friday night.

The Giants were very aggressive against Niese, who ended up throwing just 87 pitches. The southpaw dug a hole for himself by committing an error in the second inning, which opened the door for two runs to score. He has now lost three straight starts since coming off the disabled list while seeing his ERA go from 2.88 to 3.23. He'll face the Nationals on the road next week.
Aug 1 - 9:41 PM

Hunter Pence drove in three runs in Friday's win over the Mets.

Pence had an RBI ground out in the second inning and later added a two-run triple to the right-center field gap in the seventh. He also drew a walk and scored a run in the game. The 31-year-old has remained a useful fantasy outfielder this season, but he's currently on pace to fall well short of his home run and RBI totals from last year.
Aug 1 - 9:40 PM

Brandon Crawford went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored Friday against the Mets.

Crawford also had his ninth triple of the season. The three-hit night was nice to see from the 27-year-old, who entered Friday's action with an ugly .173 batting average and 21 strikeouts over 75 at-bats this month. He's shown a bit more pop this season, but most in mixed leagues can do better.
Aug 1 - 9:40 PM

Lucas Duda clubbed a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Giants.

It was the only offense of the evening for the Mets, who just couldn't get anything going against Ryan Vogelsong. Duda is now up to 20 home runs on the year and has gone deep six times in his last nine games. We've seen some flashes of his potential in the past, but it looks like things are finally coming together for him.
Aug 1 - 9:39 PM

David Wright went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Friday against the Giants.

Wright is now hitting just .170 (9-for-53) with one-extra base hit (a double) over 14 games since the All-Star break. He missed some time late in the first half with a bruised rotator cuff and it's increasingly clear that he's not 100 percent.
