Trea Turner went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Turner came through with an RBI single to score Danny Espinosa in the second inning. His steal on Thursday was No. 6 on the season. The 23-year-old outfielder has picked up at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games and all six steals have come during that same stretch. In 51 at-bats, Turner is slashing .333/.382/.510. The jewel of the Nationals farm system deserves hard consideration for mixed-league usage given the way he is swinging the stick right now.

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

The Giants could only find five hits as a team against a locked in Tanner Roark. Gillaspie had himself two of those. He also picked up an RBI on a second-inning ground out. That makes three consecutive games in which he has driven in a run. Despite his recent quiet success, there is no true fantasy intrigue here. Gillaspie has just four home runs and 17 RBI for the season as a whole.

Tanner Roark pitched well in Thursday's win over the Giants, firing seven innings of four-hit, one-run ball.

Roark struck out three and walked three on the evening. Only a Conor Gillaspie RBI ground out in the second inning prevented him from a potential shutout. The 29-year-old right-hander has allowed one or fewer earned runs over seven or more innings in eight outings. That is the second-most in the majors, with only Jon Lester's nine such starts besting it. Roark will carry a 2.96 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 113/41 K/BB ratio (136 2/3 frames) into a road duel with the Diamondbacks next time he toes the rubber.

Johnny Cueto failed to provide length in Thursday's loss to the Nationals, allowing three runs on eight hits over five innings.

Strange night for Cueto, who struck out just three and walked two on the evening. Those low numbers would outwardly seem to lend toward a lower pitch count, but Cueto had already thrown 101 pitches (63 strikes) by the time he was relieved of duty before the start of the sixth inning. Since the Giants booted back up after the All-Star break, the ace has surrendered eight runs on 20 hits in three starts (16 innings). He has allowed at least three earned runs in five of his last seven outings. Despite a bit of a slowdown since a hot start, he owns a 2.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 131/30 K/BB ratio over 147 1/3 innings for the season as a whole. A road showdown with the Phillies shows next on his schedule.

Albert Pujols went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Pujols was the only Angels hitter to notch multiple hits. The most important of these came in the ninth inning, when Pujols lined a hard single to left off Brad Ziegler. That moved Mike Trout (who reached on an infield single to lead off the frame) to second. Trout and Ji-Man Choi -- who pinch-ran for Pujols after the single -- would eventually come around to score on a two-run throwing error by Hanley Ramirez. The aged Pujols continues to post respectable counting stats (19 homers, 78 RBI) but is hitting just .255/.329/.432 over 384 at-bats.
