Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4, including a two-RBI ninth inning triple, on Friday.

Carpenter picked up all three of his RBI in the late innings. He had a seventh inning RBI single, then hit his second triple of the year in the ninth to drive in two. Carpenter's late would-be heroics weren't enough to save the Cardinals' bacon, though, as the team lost 7-4. Carpenter's hitting .288/.383/.400 this season.

Paul Goldschmidt will be examined Saturday after getting hit in the hand by a pitch during Friday's game against the Pirates.

Goldschmidt was getting a rare night off, but he was called in to pinch-hit in the ninth and got plunked then. He still might be able to play Saturday.
Aug 2 - 1:58 AM

Ryan Braun hit two doubles and knocked in two runs in Friday's 7-4 win over the Cardinals.

Braun finished the game 2-for-4. He hit a ground rule double to plate Jonathan Lucroy in the fifth and added another RBI double the next inning. He now has 63 RBI on the year to go with a slash of .289/.341/.510.
Aug 2 - 1:57 AM

Paul Maholm was scheduled for an MRI after injuring his right knee Friday against the Cubs.

Maholm was injured awkwardly stepping on the bag as he went to cover first base. It sounds as though he's almost surely DL bound.
Aug 2 - 1:56 AM

Wily Peralta pitched six and two-thirds innings of two-run ball and improved to 13-6 as the Brewers defeated the Cardinals on Friday.

Peralta's control was a little shakey, as he walked four to go with his three strikeouts, but he was otherwise solid. He allowed just five hits and did a good job of working efficiently despite the walks, as he had only thrown 97 pitches when he was taken out late in the seventh. The 25-year old holds a 3.52 ERA and a 13-6 record. He'll face the Giants in his next start.
Aug 2 - 1:48 AM

Kyle Hendricks allowed two runs -- one earned -- and four hits over seven innings in beating the Dodgers on Friday.

Hendricks only occasionally touches 90 mph on the gun, but he's been effective so far with his four-pitch mix, going 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA in four starts. We still wouldn't consider him mixed-league material.
Aug 2 - 1:41 AM

Adam Wainwright was crushed to the tune of seven runs over five and a third innings in his loss to the Brewers on Friday.

Ouch. Wainwright allowed nine hits and walked three. The blow that knocked him out was a three-run double by Jonathan Lucroy with one out in the sixth. This start actually marks the second time in his last three outings that Wainwright has given up six or more runs. The Rays scored six against Wainwright two starts ago. Even the best go through the occasional rough patch. Unless word of an injury surfaces, there's no need for concern here. Wainwright boasts a 13-6 record and 2.26 ERA. He'll try to right the ship against the Red Sox in his next start. World Series rematch!
Aug 2 - 1:40 AM

Dan Haren surrendered seven runs -- six earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Cubs.

The Dodgers couldn't come away with Jon Lester or David Price, but they'll be motivated to add a starter at some point during August if Haren continues to get tattooed. He's now lost five straight starts, with his ERA jumping from 3.57 to 4.73.
