Zack Wheeler allowed four runs over six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Brewers.

Jesus Aguilar was the thorn in Wheeler's side on this day -- he's been the thorn in pretty much every opposing pitcher's side lately -- delivering an RBI single in the first inning before bopping a three-run homer in the third. Otherwise, Wheeler kept the potent Brewers' bats mostly quiet, also striking out six while walking two. He's got an ugly 5.40 ERA and 1.48 WHIP that are a bit inflated by two poor starts, but Wheeler has actually been serviceable for many of his nine starts to date. That said, a date Friday with the Cubs brings no relief for the righty.

Jhoulys Chacin allowed eight hits and five runs in 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Mets.

Chacin didn't really get hit all that hard -- only one of the eight hits went for extra bases, a Michael Conforto double -- but a rough second inning hurt his final line. One bad inning is about the extent of the criticism of Chacin lately, as he's been largely terrific for the Brewers since the start of May. Even with Sunday's outing, the 30-year-old owns a 3.69 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 12 starts. An interleague date with the White Sox is on tap for Saturday.

Buster Posey (hip) remains out of the Giants' starting lineup on Sunday.

It's the second straight game that Posey has missed with what the Giants are calling a minor ailment. He's still considered day-to-day. Nick Hundley will once again start behind the dish and will bat eighth for the Giants against Tyler Chatwood and the Cubs.

Bud Norris pitched a perfect ninth inning Sunday to secure an 8-6 win and a series win over the Pirates.

Two days, two flawless saves for the right-hander, who has bounced back well after a rough outing against the Royals earlier in the week. Through 24 appearances, Norris now has a 2.49 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 34/4 K/BB ratio in 25 1/3 innings of work. He's also perfect in save chances, converting all 11 opportunities to date.

Adam Frazier hit a two-run triple and scored a run in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

With two on and one out in the fifth inning, Frazier lined a Miles Mikolas offering to the left-center field gap that brought home both runners. He motored to third for his first triple of the year, and scored on an Austin Meadows sac fly one batter later. Frazier got the start at second base and batted leadoff for the club, and the versatile 26-year-old is hitting .230/.304/.336 in 47 games this year.

Kurt Suzuki paced Atlanta with three hits Sunday in Atlanta’s win over Boston.

Suzuki singled and scored on Tyler Flowers’ three-run homer in the second inning, doubled in the eighth, then singled and scored again in the ninth. He served as the DH on Sunday with Tyler Flowers starting behind the plate. Sunday marked Suzuki’s fourth three-hit game of the season and his first since April 24.

Mike Foltynewicz allowed three hits and one run over seven stellar innings Sunday in the Braves’ win over the Red Sox.

The 26-year-old collected seven strikeouts and three walks over 113 pitches. Foltynewicz dominated with his high-90s fastball on Sunday and had a no-hitter going until the sixth inning when Andrew Bentintendi broke it up with a one-out double. Benintendi would later score on Mitch Moreland’s RBI triple. Sunday’s start was the right-hander’s longest outing of the year, both in terms of pitch count and innings pitched. He’ll take an elite 2.55 ERA into his next start Friday versus Washington.

Yu Darvish (triceps) will undergo his MRI on Tuesday to deteremine the severity of his injury.

Darvish was placed on the disabled list on Saturday with triceps tendinitis. The Cubs are calling the move precautionary, but we'll know much more after Tuesday's exam. Until then, there is no clear timetable for his return.
