Chase d’Arnaud went 2-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, two RBI, and one run scored in the Braves 8-5 win over the Marlins on Thursday.
Another productive night for the 29-year-old third baseman. d’Arnaud had an RBI single in the sixth, an RBI double in the eight and scored the first run of the ballgame in the third on a Freddie Freeman triple. He has proven to be very versatile for the Braves, already playing five different positions this year. He is batting a very sweet .276/.349/.366 in 42 games and could be a nice flier pick up in deeper NL-only leagues. The Braves will continue their series with the Marlins on Friday night as Justin Nicolino takes the mound for Miami. d’Arnaud has never faced the 24-year-old before.
Tyler Flowers went 3-for-4 with three doubles, one RBI, and one run scored in the Braves 8-5 win over the Marlins on Thursday.
Flowers nearly doubled his total number of doubles this season in one game on Thursday night. He had five doubles in 46 games coming into this game and had three on the evening against the Marlins. The veteran catcher has been splitting time behind the plate with A.J. Pierzynski while batting .252/.337/.400 with five home runs and 16 RBI overall. The Braves will continue their series with the Marlins on Friday night as Justin Nicolino takes the mound for Miami. Flowers has never faced the 24-year-old before.
Adeiny Hechavarria went 2-for-5 with a double and one RBI in the Marlins 8-5 loss to the Braves on Thursday.
Hechavarria had a two-out double in the top of the ninth to bring the game to within three runs but the Marlins still fell short. He has been on fire over the past three games going 6-for-13 with a double, a triple, two RBI and three runs scored. The batting line stands at .246/.279/.345 with three homers, nine doubles, four triples and 25 RBI. The Marlins will continue their series with the Braves on Friday night as Julio Teheran takes the mound for Atlanta. Hechavarria has a career .276 batting average with two RBI over 30 at-bats against Teheran.
Justin Bour went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, two walks and two runs scored in the Marlins 8-5 loss to the Braves on Thursday.
Bour was only able to collect one hit on the evening but he made it count with a three run shot in the second inning off of the Braves’ Mike Foltynewicz. He collected six home runs, 20 RBI and 14 runs scored with a .317 average during the month of June. The 28-year-old Bour has a total of 15 homers and 46 RBI with a batting line of .269/.347/.534 on the season. The Marlins will continue their series with the Braves on Friday night as Julio Teheran takes the mound for Atlanta.

Mauricio Cabrera pitched a perfect third of an inning in the Braves 8-5 win over the Marlins on Thursday.
The Braves put in Arodys Vizcaino in the ninth to close the game out but after Adeiny Hechavarria’s two-out double to score Justin Bour, he was pulled for Mauricio Cabrera. It took Cabrera six pitches to induce Cole Gillespie to fly out to left and earn his first save of the season. He was just called up by the Braves on June 27th after holding batters to a .165 batting average at the Double-A level. The idea is for Cabrera to be used in a middle relief role.
Jhonny Peralta went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the Cardinals 4-2 loss to the Royals on Thursday.
Peralta missed the first two months of the season after having thumb surgery this off-season. The veteran took Dillon Gee deep in the sixth inning for his third homer in 20 games thus far this season. He has 10 RBI and eight runs scored in those 20 games with a batting line of .232/.267/.415. The Cardinals continue their home stand on Friday as the Brewers come to town. Jhonny Peralta is 17-for-37 (.459) lifetime off of Milwaukee starter Matt Garza with two home runs, two doubles and five RBI.

Moss parked his 17th home run of the season in the fourth inning off of the Royals’ Chris Young. Moss’ homer was the only run the Cardinals could muster off of the veteran.
