Shelby Miller took his eighth loss, allowing four runs in five innings to the Pirates on Thursday.

The Cardinals have lost the game in each of Miller's last five starts, as the right-hander has posted a 7.30 ERA in that span of time. Against the Pirates, Miller yielded five hits and four walks while striking out only one. The 23-year-old right-hander will go into the All-Star break looking to turn things around, as he sports a 4.29 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and a 73/54 K/BB ratio.

Edinson Volquez pitched a complete game gem against the Cardinals, allowing just one run en route to a win on Thursday.

It's only the second complete game of the veteran's career and his first since July 19, 2012. The right-hander has been nearly untouchable in his last four starts, having posted a 0.90 over 30 innings. On this night, Volquez allowed six hits, walked two, and struck out five. In what has been a renaissance season, Volquez will carry a 3.65 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 73/37 K/BB ratio into the All-Star break.

Freddie Freeman singled, hit an RBI double, and scored twice in four at-bats as the Braves earned a 3-1 victory over the Mets on Thursday.

Freeman gave the Braves a 1-0 lead in the first inning with an RBI double and later scored on Jason Heyward's single. The National League All-Star reserve is slashing .299/.387/.503 with 13 home runs and 50 RBI.
Jul 10 - 10:20 PM

David Wright walked twice and knocked in a run with a single in four plate appearances in Thursday's loss against the Braves.

Wright has been immensely productive at the plate since mid-June -- he entered the night with a .982 OPS since June 16 -- and it continued on Thursday in a losing effort. Wright's rapidly-improving slash line now sits at .277/.335/.402 with seven home runs and 44 RBI.
Jul 10 - 10:18 PM

Craig Kimbrel worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning to earn his 28th save as the Braves won against the Mets on Thursday.

Kimbrel, recently named to the National League All-Star roster, made quick work of the Mets, recording a strikeout in the process. He has pitched four consecutive perfect ninth innings. Kimbrel, as expected, has been dominant, having converted 28 of 32 save opportunities with a 1.96 ERA, a 0.90 WHIP, and a 61/15 K/BB ratio.
Jul 10 - 10:15 PM

Bartolo Colon evened out his record at 8-8 with a loss after allowing three runs in eight innings to the Braves in Thursday's start.

Colon rebounded from a pair of rough outings against the Pirates and Rangers, but he was out-pitched by fellow veteran Aaron Harang. Colon allowed ten hits, walked none, and struck out seven. Going into the All-Star break, Colon carries a 3.99 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and an 89/17 K/BB ratio.
Jul 10 - 10:12 PM

Aaron Harang earned win number nine after limiting the Mets to one run over seven innings of work in Thursday's start.

Harang has now won four consecutive contests. Thursday's start was the 14th out of 19 in which Harang has allowed two or fewer earned runs as well. Overall, the right-hander allowed only four hits while walking four and striking out two. The 36-year-old right-hander owns a 3.53 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 95/44 K/BB ratio heading into the All-Star break.
Jul 10 - 10:09 PM

Wei-Yin Chen improved his record to 9-3, allowing three runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Orioles won by a 4-3 margin over the Nationals on Thursday.

Chen narrowly outpitched Gio Gonzalez and received just enough run support to eke out the victory. The lefty yielded eight hits without a walk while striking out six. Chen will go into the All-Star break carrying a 4.15 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 75/18 K/BB ratio.
