Jordy Mercer went 3-for-5 with a homer and a walk against the Braves on Wednesday.

Mercer hit the third of back-to-back-to-back homers off Josh Collmenter in the 10th, following David Freese and Jose Osuna. Mercer was hitting just .203/.317/.268 this season before arriving in Atlanta this week. He's gone 7-for-13 with two homers in three games since.

Rio Ruiz went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Wednesday against the Pirates.

It'd be nice to see Ruiz stick around as the Braves' primary third baseman after Adonis Garcia is ready to return, but we're guessing that won't happen. The Braves will eventually give up on Garcia, but it seems unlikely that they're ready to do so right now.
May 25 - 12:17 AM

Robert Gsellman allowed three runs in six innings and did not get a decision against the Padres on Wednesday.

Yangervis Solarte did all the damage, driving in one run in the third inning and two more in the fifth. Gsellman surrendered six hits and one walk while fanning three batters in the quality start. The Mets skipped his last start but gave him another chance today. He 2-3 record remains unchanged to go with a 6.45 ERA in 10 games, including seven starts. He has 33 strikeouts and 15 walks in 44 2/3 innings.
May 25 - 12:11 AM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just one base hit and struck out eight batters in seven shutout innings to beat the Phillies 7-2 on Wednesday.

He carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning when catcher Andrew Knapp singled. Chatwood walked four batters and picked one of them off base. He threw 112 pitches and had to be pulled after seven innings. His record improves to 4-6 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. He will face the Mariners and Padres in a two-start week coming up next.
May 25 - 12:04 AM

Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-3 with two homers and a walk as the Cubs edged the Giants 5-4 on Wednesday.

Rizzo has four homers in his last four games, taking his OPS from .757 to .846. He's still batting just .238, but that won't last for much longer, either.
May 25 - 12:03 AM

Kyle Hendricks pitched seven innings of two-run ball in a victory over the Giants on Wednesday.

It's the first time this year that he's completed seven innings. The velocity is still down, but Hendricks has a 1.94 ERA in his last six starts after coming in at 6.19 in his first three. We'd still be a whole lot more confident about him over the rest of the season if he were throwing a couple mph harder.
May 25 - 12:01 AM

Wade Davis gave up his first homer in two years Wednesday, but he still closed out the Giants for his 10th save.

The two-run shot Davis surrendered to Mac Williamson was just the fourth homer Davis has allowed in 201 innings since he became a full-time reliever in 2014. He hadn't allowed an earned run in 17 1/3 innings to open this season, but his ERA stands at 0.98 now.
May 24 - 11:58 PM

Eduardo Nunez suffered a minor left hamstring tweak in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs.

Nunez did not have to leave the game (he finished 2-for-4) and expects to play on Thursday. He has stolen 12 bases this season, but might not be quite as active on the basepaths over the next few days.
