Reds SP Michael Lorenzen can't get passed fourth inning Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) Reds rookie starter Michael Lorenzen was not effective in his outing on Friday against the Brewers. Lorenzen needed 90 pitches to get through four innings, in which he allowed three runs on five hits in the 12-1 blowout.

Lorenzen (3-3, 3.58 ERA) gave up a solo home run to Gerardo Parra to kick off the game. After giving up another run in the first, Lorenzen served up another solo home run in the second inning, this time to Aramis Ramirez. .

"I definitely could have done better with that, and pitch selection," Lorenzen said, per MLB.com. "I felt good, everything felt really good. I think sometimes you second-guess yourself and throw some pitches and there's no conviction behind them. That's what happens sometimes. You just learn from it."

Friday's performance marks the shortest start for Lorenzen. He came into the evening having allowed four earned runs over his previous three starts.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers fires seven shutout innings in win on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

"He was excellent, the last two starts have been really, really good and tonight was probably his best one," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said, per MLB.com. "He was just in control the whole time. They never really had a threat against him. … It was a night that the bullpen needed rest and so it was in that sense exactly what we needed."

Fiers improved his record to 4-7 in what was his best start of the season so far. Fiers has been on fire lately, allowing three earned runs and 11 hits over 20 innings in his last three starts.

"I'm just getting into a groove," Fiers said. "Really attacking guys and not walking as many as I did earlier in the season. Just keeping myself out of those bad situations that I [was] putting myself in. Making them earn their way on and limiting the mistakes."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) The Pirates announced Friday starting pitcher prospect Jameson Taillon will miss about two months as he will need surgery to repair an inguinal hernia. Taillon is expected to have the surgery next week.

Cubs acquire pitcher Clayton Richard from Pirates


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) The Cubs have acquired left-hander Clayton Richard from the Pirates in exchange for cash. Richard hasn't appeared in the Major Leagues since 2013 with the Padres.

He was signed by the Pirates as a free agent during this past offseason, and split this season with Class A Bradenton and Triple-A Indianapolis. In all, Richard made 10 starts in the Pirates' system, going 4-3 with a 1.89 ERA. 

Richard is expected to start on Saturday for the Cubs against the Marlins, the Daily Herald reports.


Lack of run support dooms Cubs SP Jason Hammel to defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) Cubs starter Jason Hammel pitched well enough to win Friday against Miami. But counterpart Tom Koehler pitched just a little bit better.

Hammel allowed just two earned runs on five hits in seven innings with one walk and five strikeouts. But blasts by Christian Yelich in the first inning and Justin Bour in the sixth doomed him to his fourth loss in nine decisions.

Inconsistency has plagued Hammel recently. He has not managed successive quality starts since his first two outings in June. But his latest effort lowered his ERA on the season to a fine 2.89.
