Cardinals OF Matt Holliday doesn't have time frame for return
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:40 am ET) Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday thinks he will be back on the field "soon" from his quad injury, but stated that there is not a specific time frame for his return, according to MLB.com.

"It's one of those deals [where] you know when you know, and right now I don't have any idea," Holliday said.

Holliday landed on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday with a Grade 2 quad strain.

"I want to play as soon as I can play," Holliday said. "My leg will dictate when that is. Whenever I am able to run and play at a decent clip, I'll play."

Dodgers closer Kenley Jensen struggles to pick up 18th save
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:15 am ET) Dodgers closer Kenley Jensen didn't have his best outing of the season on Friday against the Angels, but he still managed to put the game away and earn his 18th save of the year.

Jensen allowed a solo home run to Mike Trout in the ninth inning to make the game closer, but quickly erased any lingering hopes the Angels had of a comeback.

Jensen now has a 2.81 ERA this season.


Dodgers SP Zack Greinke flashes dominance again in win
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:13 am ET) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke continued to show why he is one of the best -- if not the best -- pitchers in baseball with his outing on Friday.

Greinke tossed eight dominant innings, allowed two runs on five hits and struck out a cool eight batters. Over his last eight starts, he has 53 strikeouts and eight walks.

Greinke improved to 10-2 on the season with the win, but it wasn't all great as his ERA did rise to a still other-worldly 1.41 on the year.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
