Tommy Joseph cracked a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the Mariners.

Joseph socked a no-doubt solo shot off Edwin Diaz to lead off the ninth inning, tying up the game in the process. The Phillies would later pick up a go-ahead RBI single from Andrew Knapp and go on to win 5-4. For his part, Joseph is now hitting .250/.312/.449 with 13 homers and 38 RBI in 72 games played. He has gone yard in three of his last six games.

Matt Shoemaker (forearm) will throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

Shoemaker played catch on Wednesday. This is a positive sign for the right-hander, who had been dealing with continued soreness in his forearm and was just cleared to resume throwing last week. Assuming his bullpen session goes well on Thursday, he could be nearing a rehab assignment. Parker Bridwell will continue to start in his place until he is healthy enough to return to action.

Edwin Diaz blew his third game of the season by allowing two runs in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Phillies.

Diaz came on with the Mariners clinging to a 4-3 lead. That would not last for long, as he coughed up a solo homer to Tommy Joseph to lead off the ninth inning. Following a pair of strikeouts, Diaz walked Cameron Perkins, balked him over to second and then surrendered a go-ahead RBI single to Andrew Knapp. Diaz has allowed six runs in his last 1 1/3 innings, but after the game, manager Scott Servais said that he would remain at closer moving forward.

Chase Anderson left Wednesday's game against the Reds due to a left oblique strain.

Anderson appeared to suffer the injury while striking out swinging in the second inning. Obliques are notoriously difficult injuries to gauge when it comes to a timetable for a return. A stint on the disabled list will probably be needed, here.
Jun 28 - 8:08 PM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Cano launched a solo home run in the fifth inning to give the Mariners a 4-3 lead. Edwin Diaz would later blow that lead in the ninth. The stalwart second baseman is slashing a nice .282/.339/.480 with 14 homers and 52 RBI in 69 games this season.
Jun 28 - 8:04 PM

Felix Hernandez allowed three runs on five hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Hernandez was not at his sharpest in this one, as he walked three and threw just 66 of 98 pitches for strikes. All three runs on his line scored in the third inning, when Ty Kelly burned him for a two-run homer and Odubel Herrera picked up an RBI on a ground out. In two starts since returning from the disabled list, King Felix has surrendered six runs on 13 hits in 12 innings. He will look to continue to shake off the rust in a home start against the Royals next time he toes the rubber.

Mark Leiter allowed four runs on nine hits over five innings while taking a no-decision in Wednesday's win over the Mariners.

The home run ball plagued Leiter in this one, with Kyle Seager and Danny Valencia both taking him deep in the fourth inning for solo shots and Robinson Cano doing likewise in the fifth. Leiter struck out six without walking a batter in the outing. With Jerad Eickhoff (back) nearing a return to the rotation, he might not see another start in the short term.

Jae-gyun Hwang connected for a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Rockies, his first career long ball at the major league level.

Hwang went deep against Kyle Freeland in the sixth inning, blasting the ball an estimated 422 feet to left. The shot is made all the more remarkable by the fact that the 29-year-old infielder was just brought up prior to the game. With Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) set to return on Friday, Hwang might not see a ton of at-bats moving forward, but if nothing else, he had his moment in the sun in helping the Giants finish up the series sweep of Colorado on Wednesday.
