Matt Carpenter was removed from Sunday's game against the Cubs due to right quadriceps tightness.

The injury appeared to occur while Carpenter was running the bases. The severity of the injury is not yet known. Luke Voit replaced him at first base on Sunday. Look for an update from the Cardinals on Carpenter's status after the conclusion of Sunday's game.

Brian Goodwin went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Goodwin got the game started in fine fashion for the Nationals, socking a solo home run off Robbie Ray to lead off in the top of the first. The dinger was his ninth of the season. In addition to those nine long balls, the 26-year-old outfielder has been working to a .242/.312/.478 triple-slash and has driven in 23 runs across 178 at-bats. He has notched five extra-base hits in his last six games.

Wilmer Difo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Difo finished off the game's scoring with his solo home run in the seventh inning. That shot made the score 6-2 and the Nationals would hang on without issue to the end of the game. In 136 at-bats this season, the 25-year-old infielder is hitting an uninspiring .257/.331/.338 with two homers and 11 RBI.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Sunday that Stephen Strasburg was lifted from his start after two innings due to the fact that he had trouble getting loose.

The right-hander labored through the first two innings of this one, throwing 51 pitches and issuing three walks. His removal was precautionary and he'll be re-evaluated when the club is back home on Monday, but at the moment it doesn't appear as though he's dealing with a serious injury issue. Be sure to have a contingency plan in place if he isn't able to start this week, but for the time being it doesn't look like Strasburg will be heading to the DL.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Sunday's game that Clayton Kershaw would be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Roberts was quick to point out that he didn't feel this injury was similar to the herniated disc issue that cost Kershaw two months during the 2016 season. It does look like it'll sideline him for a couple of weeks however. No timetable will be placed on his potential return until he meets with team doctors on Monday.
Jul 23 - 8:46 PM

Ketel Marte went 1-for-5 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

Marte put the Diamondbacks on the board with his RBI single in the fifth inning, but that knock merely made the score 5-1. Since being called up in late June to help fill in for Nick Ahmed (hand), the infielder has largely struggled, hitting just .200/.260/.378 with two homers and six RBI in 19 games.
Jul 23 - 8:45 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and two walks in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

No-contact afternoon for Goldy in this one. The stalwart first baseman has drawn 11 walks in his last five games. Overall, he boasts a .307/.425/.560 triple-slash with 21 homers, 73 RBI and 15 steals across 348 at-bats.
Jul 23 - 8:42 PM

After Stephen Strasburg left Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks due to an undisclosed injury, Matt Grace came in to allow two runs on three hits over 2 1/3 innings.

Strasburg managed two innings before being sidelined by possible injury, after which Grace came on to try to give the Nationals a little length. Two runs scored against him in the fifth inning and he finished up his long-relief duty having struck out one and walked one. In 23 appearances this season, Grace is pitching to a 3.65 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 15/10 K/BB ratio.
