Jake Lamb went 3-for-6 with a homer and scored the winning run in the 11th as the Diamondbacks edged the Braves 10-9 on Wednesday.
Lamb doubled, advanced to third on a wild pitch and then scored the winning run on Brandon Drury's sac fly. The homer in the fifth inning was his 25th of the year. He has five hits the last two days to snap out of an ugly 2-for-46 slump.
Ender Inciarte went 4-for-7 with a double and two RBI against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Inciarte is hitting .355 in 152 at-bats since the All-Star break, which is really good. Still, fantasy leaguers need him to steal a few more bases. He's 3-for-5 during the second half and 11-for-16 in 96 games this season. With his speed, he should be a bigger weapon on the basepaths.
Julio Teheran was charged with six runs in six innings Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.
Teheran's stuff hasn't looked particularly crisp since he came off the disabled list last week, and it's worth wondering if he can recapture his first-half success before the season ends. He allowed 11 hits in all tonight, two of them homers.
Zack Greinke allowed four runs over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the Braves.
Greinke picked up his 2,000th career strikeout in an otherwise unmemorable outing. He's given up four runs on seven occasions this year after doing so just twice in 2015.
After entering the ninth with a 9-5 lead, Enrique Burgos gave up four runs without retiring a batter Wednesday against the Braves.
Burgos just got the closer gig from Jake Barrett last week, but he's probably thrown it away now (he also blew a save on Monday). The Diamondbacks could go back to Barrett or turn to Daniel Hudson, who has put together a nice August following his July implosion. We'd say Hudson is worth a shot.
Finally making his Dodgers debut, Rich Hill earned a win after shutting out the Giants for six innings on Wednesday.
Hill allowed five hits, all of them singles, and walked none to outduel Johnny Cueto in what ended up being a 1-0 game. He came out after 81 pitches, which seemed appropriate after his lengthy DL stint due to a blister. He should be able to throw closer to 100 next time out.
Johnny Cueto took the loss in a 1-0 game Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Cueto pitched six innings and gave up a homer to Justin Turner in the fourth as the only damage. Cueto fell to 1-3 since the All-Star break after finishing the first half 13-1. He hasn't been that bad, though; he has a 3.91 ERA and a 43/10 K/BB ratio in his eight starts since the break.
Justin Turner went 2-for-3 and homered to account for the only run in the Dodgers' win over the Giants on Wednesday.
Turner is up to 24 homers in 485 plate appearances this year. For the Mets in 2011, he had four homers in 487 plate appearances. Legitimately one of the NL's best players the last three years, Turner is going to be a fascinating free agent this winter.
