Eric Sogard (knee) went 1-for-5 with a single in his return to action Sunday against the Braves.

Sogard was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Saturday after he was hit in the knee by a pitch during Friday's game. The 31-year-old has been an unexpected contributor this season, hitting .353/.462/.529 with three home runs and 14 RBI over 38 games.

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) tossed three no-hit innings Sunday in his first minor league rehab start with the Giants' Arizona Rookie League team.

Bumgarner, who is coming back from a sprained left AC joint in his shoulder, struck out two and walked one. According to Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports, the southpaw sat in the 88-91 mph range with his fastball. The plan calls for him to return to San Francisco on Monday and throw another bullpen session later in the week before continuing his rehab stint. If all goes well, the Giants' ace should return by the end of July.

Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 and delivered the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning on Sunday as the Cardinals rallied to beat the Pirates 8-4.

Molina also scored three runs in the ballgame. His RBI single in the seventh inning broke a 4-4 tie and put the Cardinals ahead to stay. The veteran backstop is enjoying another solid season at the dish, hitting .268/.300/.426 with nine long balls and 29 RBI.

Randal Grichuk crushed a mammoth solo home run in his return to the Cardinals' lineup on Sunday.

Grichuk was recalled from Triple-A on Sunday after smashing six home runs in his last 10 games for Memphis. He carried that power stroke into Sunday's game, tattooing a Chad Kuhl offering over 470 feet to lead off the sixth inning. Grichuk finished the night 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and is now slashing .227/.280/.395 with five homers and 20 RBI on the season.

Greg Garcia went 1-for-2 and drove home a pair of runs on Sunday as the Cardinals came from behind to beat the Pirates.

Garcia got the start at third base in this one and got the Cardinals on the board with a two-run single off of Chad Kuhl in the second inning. It has been a rough go of it at the plate this season for Garcia, slashing .204/.328/.272 with one homer and five RBI.
Jun 25 - 11:46 PM

Mike Leake logged a quality start in Sunday's no-decision against the Pirates, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits over six frames.

Leake struck out two and walked two in the contest. The Pirates touched him up for three runs in the third inning and added another in the fourth, but Leake was able to keep the train on the tracks and fire another pair of scoreless innings before departing. While his performance has slid a bid recently, he still sports a terrific 3.12 ERA and 1.09 WHIP on the season. He'll do battle against the Nationals his next time out at home on Friday.
Jun 25 - 11:43 PM

Adam Frazier went 1-for-4 with a triple and two RBI as the Pirates fell to the Cardinals on Sunday night.

Frazier's two-run triple got the Pirates on the board in the third inning and tied the game at 2-2. He continues to excel atop the Bucs' lineup, slashing .285/.360/.400 with three homers, 28 RBI and five stolen bases.
Jun 25 - 11:38 PM

Chad Kuhl struggled in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Sunday, allowing four runs on eight hits over his five-plus innings of work.

The right-hander racked up six strikeouts on the night while walking one. He carried a 4-2 lead into the sixth inning where Randal Grichuk greeted him with a solo homer and Kuhl allowed a double to Yadier Molina before departing. He'll carry an unimpressive 5.58 ERA and 1.57 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Giants.
Jun 25 - 11:32 PM

Aaron Hicks (oblique) will be placed on the disabled list on Monday and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.

Hicks sustained the oblique injury during Sunday's game against the Rangers. No word yet on what the corresponding move will be, but there's a chance that Jacoby Ellsbury will be activated from the disabled list.
Jun 25 - 11:24 PM

The Cubs are expected to recall Jeimer Candelario on Monday.

No word yet on what the corresponding move would be, but the Cubs need another healthy body in the infield with Addison Russell banged up. His stay with the big league club should only last a couple of days.
Jun 25 - 11:18 PM

Cody Bellinger went 3-for-5 with a pair of two-run home runs and four total RBI in Sunday's 12-6 win over the Rockies.

The Rockies worked their way out to a 5-0 lead heading into the bottom of the third before the Dodgers made their offensive presence felt against Tyler Anderson. Following a two-run home run by Kike Hernandez, Bellinger crunched a two-run shot of his own to draw the team to within 5-4. They would keep that offensive momentum going as the game progressed, with Bellinger coming through for yet another two-run shot in the eighth inning. The young phenom is hitting a sparkling .274/.342/.679 with 24 homers and 55 RBI in just 57 games played. He has 11 extra-base hits (including six home runs) in his last nine games.
Jun 25 - 9:05 PM

Enrique Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

Hernandez connected for a two-run homer off Tyler Anderson with one out in the third inning. The long ball was his eighth of the season. He has gone yard in two of the last four games and sports a .233/.315/.503 triple-slash in 68 games overall.
Jun 25 - 9:00 PM

Ian Desmond went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a run scored and a steal in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Something of an odd game for the Rockies. While they posted six runs in the loss, they were unable to come up with any sort of extra-base hit -- just eight singles on the afternoon. For his part, Desmond's three-hit performance snapped an 0-for-12 skid. He is slashing .281/.309/.398 with five homers and 26 RBI in 51 games this season.
Jun 25 - 8:59 PM

Nolan Arenado went 1-for-4 with two runs scored and two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Arenado has now picked up hits in nine of his last 10 games. For the season as a whole, the star third baseman is hitting a sterling .297/.348/.563 with 15 homers, 59 RBI and 49 runs scored in 77 games played.
Jun 25 - 8:51 PM

Brandon McCarthy surrendered five runs (four earned) on four hits over three innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

McCarthy allowed three runs in the second inning and two more in the third. He struck out two and walked four on the afternoon. Up next on the docket, a road date with the Padres. He will carry a 3.25 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into that one as he looks to bounce back from Sunday's shaky affair.
