Matt Carpenter hit his 14th home run of the year in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

Carpenter led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot off Pirates ace Gerrit Cole. Things went downhill from there for the Cards. The hit was his only one in three at-bats, leaving his line at .236/.371/.471 through 69 games. The 14 homers are nice, and he's still getting on base at a very good clip, but he's now two for his last 22 after a good stretch in early June.

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

His rise from the ashes continues, as he's now turned in multi-hit games in 10 of 21 games this month. That's good for a .387 average, with six homers, 20 RBI and 19 runs scored in June. In total, he's hitting .269/.351/.485. Reports of his death appear to have been greatly exaggerated.

Jordy Mercer homered and collected three RBI in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

Mercer hit a two-run shot off Cardinals starter Lance Lynn in the fourth inning, his seventh homer of the year, and he added an RBI groundout in the sixth. The 30-year-old is quietly on pace for the best full offensive season of his career, batting .275/.349/.424 in 72 games. He's got 28 RBI and 29 runs scored to go with those seven homers to date.

Allen Cordoba left Saturday's game against the Tigers with a left hand contusion.

He exited after taking a pitch off his left hand in the third inning. Chase d'Arnaud pinch-ran for Cordoba and replaced him at shortstop. Until we hear otherwise, consider Cordoba day-to-day.

Lance Lynn gave up seven runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

Lynn gave up a run in the first inning but seemed to settle down, putting up zeroes in the second and third before things took a turn for the worst. Jordy Mercer lined a two-run homer to left in the fourth, and Josh Harrison pulled a Lynn offering just over the wall an inning later for a solo shot. Three more runs in the sixth were enough to end Lynn's night. The start was the second in a row in which the 30-year-old allowed seven runs, ballooning his ERA to 3.86. Lynn will try to stop the bleeding Thursday against a good Diamondbacks offense.

Gerrit Cole held the Cardinals to one run over six innings in a win Saturday.

Some might have been concerned when the first Cardinals hitter of the game, Matt Carpenter, deposited a Cole offering into the Cards' bullpen, but Cole straightened up from there. He gave up just four hits the rest of the night, walking two while striking out five. The start was the third in a row in which the 26-year-old has allowed just a single run. It's no coincidence that he's 3-0 in those starts. Cole is 6-6 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.25 WHIP overall, but that late May-early June funk seems to be a thing of the past. Cole has an opportunity for another strong showing Friday when he takes on the cellar-dwelling Giants.

Jacob deGrom limited the Giants to one run over eight innings, striking out seven, and the Mets came on late to grab a 5-2 win Saturday.

deGrom scattered four hits and a walk but was in danger of not factoring in the decision after Brandon Belt's solo homer in the seventh inning tied the game at 1-1. Fortunately for the right-hander, the Mets answered in the top of the eighth and the bullpen held on, getting him his third straight win. He's allowed one run while going at least eight innings in each of those three wins, improving him to 7-3 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 15 starts overall. The 29-year-old will have a terrific chance to make it four in a row when he takes on the Phillies on Friday.

Brandon Belt hit his 14th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Belt hit a solo homer off Mets starter Jacob deGrom to knot the game at 1-1 in the seventh inning. The homer was his third in his last five games, and he's driven in runs in each of those five games. He's hit in seven straight, but only has one hit in each of those seven contests. Still, it's something to cling to for Belt's owners, who have been disappointed by a .228/.343/.448 line thus far. Perhaps this is a sign of better things to come.
