Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Although Gonzalez has struggled to hit for average this season, as he is batting just .262, his 71 RBI are second only to Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton's 73 and the double Thursday was his 28th of the season which has him tied for seventh among NL players.

Braves OF Jason Heyward said he is not playing Friday. The soonest he would be back would be Saturday, if his back keeps improving.

What was originally supposed to be minor back soreness that may have kept Heyward out a game or two has not exceeded to the point where even returning on Saturday seems very optimistic for the Braves right fielder.

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a home run, an RBI, and two runs scored to help lead the Dodgers to a 2-1 victory Thursday over the Braves.

He is now hitting .316 on the season which is second behind Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki (.340) and the double Thursday gives him 30 on the season, which is tied for third most among NL hitters

Clayton Kershaw pitched a complete game Thursday against the Braves allowing one run on nine hits with no walks and nine strikeouts in the victory.

CY Kershaw is now 13-2 on the season with 1.71 ERA after becoming the first Dodgers pitcher since Orel Hershiser in 1985 to win 10 straight starts. Of the 18 outs not coming via the strikeout, not one was recorded by an outfielder in Thursday's outing.

Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with two RBIs in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Mariners.

Santana wrapped up his best month of the season, by far, as he finished with a slash line of .313/.407/.615 with eight of his 20 home runs coming in July. The multi-positional eligible Santana will look to carry over his recent success into the dog days of summer as his fantasy owners are much deserving for sticking with him through three months of mediocrity.

Zach McAllister lasted just 3.1 innings in the no-decision Thursday against the Mariners.

Any hopes that McAllister had made the necessary adjustments while spending about a month in the minors looks to have been a wet dream. He has now allowed three-plus runs in three of his four outings since being recalled with each start worse than the other.

Cody Allen got the final two outs in a non-save situation of the Indians 6-5 loss to the Mariners on Thursday.

The Indians' closer did not get a chance for a save on Thursday, but that should not put a damper on his overall performance this month, a month where he finished with an ERA of 0.00, 0.91 WHIP, 16 strikeouts, three walks, and was a perfect 6-for-6 in saves in 12 appearances (11 IP).

Chris Young allowed four earned runs on seven hits, including a home run, and two walks with just one strikeout over 5.1 innings of Thursday's no-decision against the Indians.

Chris Young was unable to build on previous successful outing where he pitched seven scoreless innings at home against the Orioles. Thursday's game was on the road where he has struggled. He is 3-3 with a 4.33 ERA and 29 strikeouts to 21 walks over 10 starts (11 G, 60.1 IP) on the road compared to a home record of 6-3 with a 2.21 ERA and 50 strikeouts to 22 walks over 11 starts (69.1 IP), thus illustrating that he is merely a pitcher to consider streaming if the matchup is favorable and the game is in Seattle.

Mike Zunino belted a two-run home run in four at-bats of Thursday's win over the Indians.

The home run was the young catchers team-leading 17th of the season, which also leads all AL catchers, and is tied for second among all catchers behind Reds Devin Mesoraco's 18 on the season. The power is nice but Zunino hit just .171 for the month of July lowering his season average down to a dismal .212.
