Howie Kendrick went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Monday's 8-1 win over the Mariners.

Kendrick is 1-for-6 in his last two games after he went 22-for-44 (.500) with seven extra-base hits (two homers) and 14 RBI during a 10-game hitting streak. The 31-year-old second baseman is getting on base at a better-than-career-average clip, though his power has dropped off a bit. He's slashed .292/.346/.396 with seven homers and 71 RBI.
Sep 16 - 1:11 AM

Mike Trout went 1-for-2 with three walks and a run scored in Monday's win over the Mariners.

Trout is now 4-for-23 (.174) off the Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma. That's his worst batting average against any pitcher Trout has ever had 15 or more at-bats against. Fortunately, he's really, really good against everybody else. Trout is slashing .291/.381/.567 and is on pace for 37 homers, 116 RBI, 117 runs and 15 steals.

Matt Shoemaker yielded only five hits and one runs over 7 2/3 innings in an 8-1 victory over the Mariners on Monday.

Shoemaker allowed five hits, but he didn't walk anyone. He struck out five. Shoemaker is one of the hottest pitchers in the game right now; he's won seven straight decisions and came into the game with a 1.32 ERA across his last seven outings. Shoemaker improved to 16-4 with a 3.04 ERA. He's going to show up on plenty Rookie of the Year ballots. Shoemaker squares off against the Rangers on Saturday.
Sep 16 - 1:10 AM

Hisashi Iwakuma was knocked around by the Angels on Monday, allowing seven runs on six hits across 3 1/3 innings.

Iwakuma struck out four, walked two and gave up a homer. Seattle dug itself into an 8-0 hole before getting on the board in the eighth inning. The Japanese right-hander, who came into this outing 5-0 with a 1.75 ERA in seven career outings against the Angels, picked the wrong time to fall apart, allowing the Angels to improve to 94-56. Iwakuma (14-8, 3.42 ERA) is scheduled to take on the Astros in Houston on Saturday.
Sep 16 - 1:08 AM

Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam to lead the Diamondbacks past the Giants 6-2 on Monday.

He finished 2-for-5 with five RBI, adding an RBI single in the seventh. The big damage came in the third frame, when Trumbo swatted a Ryan Vogelsong offering over the right field wall to plate Wade Miley, Chris Owings and A.J. Pollock. Trumbo has driven in 10 runs over his last five games. A hot finish would give a nice superficial boost to his disappointing slash line (.239/.303/.389).
Sep 16 - 12:46 AM

Buster Posey went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the Giants fell to the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Monday.

He has hit safely in six straight. Posey has knocked in 27 of his 86 RBI in his last 23 games. He's been particularly hot in the season's final month, going 22-for-49 (.449) with two homers and 14 RBI in September. The catcher typically feasts on Rattler pitchers, coming into this one hitting .375 with 17 RBI in his last 18 against Arizona. He's slashing .311/.362/.488 with 20 homers.
Sep 16 - 12:45 AM

Wade Miley held the Giants at bay on Monday, allowing only one run on seven hits across seven innings of a 6-2 win.

Miley struck out four and didn't walk a batter. Miley entered play 0-4 in his previous seven outings, but toting a 2.86 ERA in his last six, so he must have been pretty pleased to receive six runs of support tonight. The left-hander had a shouting match with skipper Kirk Gibson in his last start against the Dodgers, but Miley indicated he was just blowing off steam from a less-than-stellar night. No frustration tonight in improving to 8-11 with a 4.17 ERA. Miley caps a two-week start by traveling to Coors Field on Sunday.
Sep 16 - 12:43 AM

Ryan Vogelsong allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Giants dropped a 6-2 decision versus the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Vogelsong didn't have his best stuff tonight, though that only manifested on the scoreboard on Mark Trumbo's grand slam. He walked four and allowed six hits. The right-hander came into tonight with a 1.38 ERA in his last two starts against the Diamondbacks, having received exactly zero runs of support in both games. San Francisco's offense couldn't get going tonight, either. Vogelsong (8-11, 3.98 ERA) will be in San Diego this weekend for a Sunday matinee against the Padres.
