Yairo Munoz went 3-for-4 with two RBI in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

Munoz was one of the few Cardinals able to get anything going against Brent Suter and company, as he swatted an RBI double in the fifth inning before lining a run-scoring single to center in the ninth. The 23-year-old has filled in admirably for the injured Paul DeJong at shortstop for the Cards, batting .288/.333/.396 in 40 games, but when DeJong returns it's likely Munoz gets relegated to a bench role or, at the very least, gets moved to a new home on the infield.

Mark Melancon recorded his first save of the season in Thursday's win over the Padres, tossing a scoreless ninth inning while allowing one hit.

The Giants held a 3-0 lead after posting a pair of insurance runs in the eighth inning, certainly a welcome bit of breathing room for Melancon when he trotted out to open the top of the ninth. That frame began in wobbly fashion -- he surrendered a leadoff single to Hunter Renfroe -- before he settled in to shut the door. This was just the veteran reliever's eighth appearance of the season, as he missed the first two months of the season battling a forearm injury. With Hunter Strickland (hand) expected to be sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks, Melancon will be in the mix for saves along with Tony Watson and Sam Dyson moving forward.

Travis Shaw went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

Shaw hit an opposite-field, RBI double in the third inning, coming in to score later in the inning on an odd wild pitch from Cards starter Carlos Martinez. Shaw tacked on an RBI sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. Thursday's game was his first since Sunday due to a minor wrist injury, and judging by the results he seems to be just fine. The 28-year-old third baseman is hitting .250/.344/.496 through 70 games overall.

Manny Pina went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run in a win over the Cardinals on Thursday.

It was a bad night for Carlos Martinez and company, with Pina's solo homer in the fourth inning adding to it. The homer was the fifth of the year in 48 games for Pina, who's got 14 RBI and 21 runs scored. The 31-year-old backstop is hitting .227/.291/.387 overall.
Jun 22 - 1:04 AM

Buster Posey went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Posey didn't have a supernova offensive performance in this one, but his hit was an important one, as it drove in a run in the eighth inning to give the Giants a 2-0 lead. They had been clinging to a 1-0 advantage since the fifth inning prior to the All Star backstop's clutch knock. Posey is slashing .290/.364/.429 with five home runs and 26 RBI in 61 games this season. It hasn't been a bad year, exactly, more a muted one. His counting production is less than robust.
Jun 22 - 1:03 AM

Manuel Margot went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Margot was the only Padres batter to truly crack Madison Bumgarner's puzzle on Thursday, with both doubles coming against the ace southpaw. Bumgarner allowed just three total hits in eight innings. The pair of two-baggers bumped the outfielder's overall tally to 14 on the season. He's still hitting a paltry .239/.299/.351 overall, but has now turned in five multi-hit showings in his last 10 games.

Carlos Martinez was battered for seven runs -- five earned -- on eight hits in four innings Thursday in a loss to the Brewers.

A two-run homer (by Milwaukee's catcher), three doubles, a pair of walks with just three strikeouts -- there isn't a whole lot positive to say about this one. And unfortunately for El Gallo, that's been the theme since he came off the disabled list on June 5, as he's gone 0-2 and watched his ERA climb from 1.62 to 3.24 in that four-start span. The overall numbers are still strong but the recent results are worrisome, for both fantasy owners and the Cardinals alike. Unfortunately for both, Martinez is too talented to risk benching even during a rough patch. He'll look to regain his mojo Tuesday in an interleague tilt with the Indians.
Jun 22 - 1:00 AM

Wil Myers went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Myers was activated from the disabled list on Thursday after being sidelined for close to two months while nursing a strained oblique. There were no fireworks in his return to action, though to be fair to the 27-year-old, Madison Bumgarner did not exactly offer the softest opponent following a long layoff. Myers has played in just 11 games this year -- he was dealing with an arm issue in April even before his oblique acted up -- and we don't have much of a sample size on him this year. For a refresher on his output from the 2017 season, he hit .243/.328/.464 with 30 homers, 74 RBI and 20 steals across 567 at-bats. Fantasy owners should be aware that it could take a week or two for Myers to get back into the swing of things in full, but he can be deployed in lineups as normal moving forward.
