Mike Morse hit a three-run homer off Cole Hamels and walked before being removed from Friday's game.

Gregor Blanco replaced Morse after a walk in the sixth and remained in left field. The homer was Morse's first since July 29 and third since June 5. He probably has another power surge left in him this season, but he's a hard guy to recommend in mixed leagues after being so useless for months.

Michael Morse was 3-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs scored against the Marlins on Friday.

Two of his hits were doubles. He had just two extra-base hits over his previous eight games. Morse has faded in a big way since mid-June, so fantasy owners will have to hope that the All-Star break has rejuvenated him for a big finish.
