Yasiel Puig went 4-for-5 and became the first player in four years to triple three times in a game Friday as the Dodgers topped the Giants 8-0.

The Twins' Denard Span was the last player with three triples in a game, doing so against the Tigers on June 29, 2010. The next to last was Rafael Furcal in 2002. Before that, it was Lance Johnson in 1995. So, obviously, it's a very rare feat. In fact, no Dodger had done it since at least 1901. Puig now has eight triples this year, leaving him two behind teammate Dee Gordon (who also had one tonight) for the major league lead.

Trevor Plouffe went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Mariners.

In a fun back-and-forth contest, Plouffe stepped to the plate against Dan Altavilla with two on and one out in the seventh inning and the A's clinging to a 6-5 advantage. Plouffe provided breathing room and then some, connecting for a 390-foot homer to left to boost the Athletics to a 9-5 advantage. That one hit rescued what would have been a disappointing evening, as he struck out in his other three at-bats. Through his first 51 at-bats of the season, Plouffe has struggled to a .216/.293/.392 triple-slash with three home runs and eight RBI.

James Paxton turned in his first poor start of the season while taking a no-decision in Thursday's 9-6 loss to the A's, surrendering five runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Paxton entered Thursday's outing having not allowed a run in 21 innings (three starts). He started out against the A's in similar enough fashion, posting zeros over the first two innings. Adam Rosales and Ryon Healy would prove his nemesis, though, with both players picking RBI hits in a three-run third inning. The A's would score twice more in the fifth to drive Paxton from the mound. He finished his evening having struck out eight. The 28-year-old southpaw will carry a 1.78 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 35/5 K/BB ratio (25 1/3 innings) into a road start against the Tigers next time out as he tries his best to cope with having an ERA over 0.00.

Delino DeShields came through with a walk-off RBI single in the 13th inning to help the Rangers top the Royals 1-0 on Thursday.

After Joey Gallo's out-out double set the stage, DeShields lined a Travis Wood offering over the third baseman's head and down the left field line for the game-winning hit. It was his only hit in four at-bats and just his second hit all season. There was talk of the 24-year-old possibly having a large role with the Rangers coming out of camp, but he's been buried by manager Jeff Banister and hasn't helped his case with his poor hitting when given an opportunity. Sometimes something like a walk-off hit can be a catalyst for a slumping hitter. Perhaps Thursday's walk-off single will do just that for DeShields.

Travis Shaw went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run to help the Brewers best the Cardinals 7-5 on Thursday.

Shaw hit a fat pitch from Carlos Martinez for the three-run jack in the first inning. The homer was his third in as many games, giving him five in 16 games this year. Shaw is batting cleanup in a deceptively strong Brewers lineup and is worth an add in your mixed league at this point.

Maikel Franco went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI as the Phillies defeated the Mets 6-4 on Thursday.

Franco swatted an RBI double in the third inning before knocking the solo homer in the eighth. Thursday's hits broke an 0-for-21 slump. The homer was his third in 15 games, and Franco is among the league leaders with 12 RBI, but he's struggled to a .172/.246/.362 line to date.

Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Kipnis is ready to go after hitting .200 during a seven-game rehab assignment with Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus. He'll return to his post as Cleveland's everyday second baseman with Jose Ramirez shifting from second to third base. Interim third baseman Yandy Diaz will likely be sent down to Triple-A. Kipnis hit .275 last year with 15 steals and a career-high 23 home runs.

Yoenis Cespedes doesn't think his hamstring injury is serious and only expects to miss 2-3 days.

He confirmed the injury was not a cramp as previously reported. Cespedes said he felt a "shock" in his hamstring but has had similar injuries and doesn't think this one is as bad. More will be known after Cespedes goes for an MRI on Friday morning. Cespedes suffered the injury while running to second base in Thursday night's loss to Philadelphia.

Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 while allowing two runs over seven innings, and the Nationals edged out the Braves 3-2 on Thursday.

Strasburg gave up six hits -- five of them singles -- and walked two in the victory, his second of 2017. He's been remarkably consistent in each of his four starts, going seven innings in each while allowing two earned runs in three of the four, yielding three runs in the other. Still, Thursday was his best turn to date, leaving him with a 2.89 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 29/7 K/BB ratio over 28 innings of work. The right-hander will have a test Tuesday when the Nats visit the Rockies in Colorado.

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin declined to name a closer after using Hector Neris to close out Thursday's win over the Mets.

Joaquin Benoit took over closer duties from Jeanmar Gomez last week but may have ruined his opportunity by allowing a walk-off home run to Bryce Harper on Sunday. Benoit pitched the eighth inning on Thursday before giving way to Neris in the ninth. Neris has been the Phillies' best reliever since Ken Giles left and probably should have been pitching the ninth inning all along. He needs to be owned in all leagues.

J.J. Hardy finished 2-for-4 with an RBI single in the 10th inning to lead the Orioles to a 2-1 win over the Reds on Thursday.

Hardy, who also doubled in the contest, lofted a soft fly ball over the shortstop's head that fell between the Reds outfielders, allowing Mark Trumbo to rumble around from second to score the go-ahead run in the extra frame. The 34-year-old shortstop got off to a slow start at the dish but has 10 hits in his last 28 at-bats to raise his overall line to .255/.271/.383.

Daniel Murphy was scratched from Thursday's game against the Braves because of tightness in his right leg.

Grant Green, who was already in the lineup at shortstop, will move to second base with Wilmer Difo filling in at shortstop. Manager Dusty Baker said he could tell Murphy didn't look right swinging the bat on Wednesday night. The Nats are hoping to have Murphy back for Friday's series opener against the Mets.
