Michael Morse hit a solo-home run in four at-bats of Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Pirates.

Morse's average remains respectable at .272, but the power numbers have been a giant disappointment over the last two or so months. Tuesday home run was Morse's 15th of the season, but his first since July 5th and second since June 5th. As if that were not disheartening enough, Morse has driven in just four RBIs this month.

Tim Hudson gave up three runs, six hits, two home runs, and one walk with just two strikeouts over seven innings in the home loss to the Pirates Tuesday.

Hudson lost his second straight start and six over his past eight to bring his season record to 8-8 over 21 starts with an impressive 2.71 ERA . Hudson has allowed a total of nine home runs on the season, but surprisingly Tuesday marked the third time this year that the veteran righty had allowed more than one home run in a start.

Francisco Liriano allowed one run and a walk with 11 punch outs over seven innings in the 3-1 win over the Giants Tuesday.

The wins and the ERA are slowly improving for Liriano, who has earned a "W" in each of his last two starts, which is double the number of victories he had over his previous 16 starts (3-7) to begin the season. The 11 strikeouts were a season-high for the lefty who had reached double-digit K's for the first time since his first start of the season.

Travis Snider hit a two-run home run in three at-bats of Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Giants.

Travis Snider would not be outdone by teammate Josh Harrison who hit his third home in run in as many games after belting a solo-shot in the first inning. Snider followed up Harrison's home run with his third in three games an inning later. As nice as the recent power surge has been by Snider it is likely a situation where if you didn't own him you are probably better off not owning him, because if history has anything to tell us it would be that you missed out on a nice hot streak only to invest in a player that will have a hard time coming anywhere near this type of production going forward.

Harrison has been hot, hot, hot as he is hitting .583 (7-for-12) with the three home runs and four RBI over his last three games. Now would be as good a time to try a pair the mufti-positional eligible Harrison in a deal with the hopes it could land you a star player.

Matt Garza had a solid outing in the no-decision against his former team Tuesday as he held the Rays to one run with two walks and two strikeouts over seven innings.

The lone run allowed by Garza came on a solo-home run, the 10th he has allowed this season and second in as many games after allowing just one over his previous nine starts. He is now 7-7 (22 GS) with a 3.74 ERA on the season with just one win over his last four starts (1-2). His next start will be Tuesday against the visiting Giants.

Scooter Gennett drove in the Brewers lone run on a base hit, his only hit in two at-bats, in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Rays.

Gennett had one of the three hits the Brewers were able to muster up against Rays starter Alex Cobb on Tuesday. He is now hitting .302 with 35 RBI on the season after getting his first hit in four games (1-for-8).

Alex Cobb allowed on run on three hits and two walks with 12 strikeouts over eight innings in the win over the Brewers Tuesday.

Cobb reached the 12 strikeout mark for the third time in his young career. He is one of just three pitchers in Rays franchise history to do so in their first 70 career games. His next start will be a must see TV matchup against the A's and Jeff Samardzija in Oakland on Monday.

Update: Ryan Zimmerman has Grade 3 hamstring strain.

If you have been holding out hope with Zimmerman you can stop as a Grade 3 strain is the most serve form. The Nats will likely try their best to acquire either a third or second baseman before the upcoming trade deadline. If they succeed in making a move Anthony Rendon will fill the other position, but until then he will man third with Danny Espinosa and recently recalled Zach Walters splitting time at second.
