Josh Donaldson homers, drives in three for Blue Jays
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:05 am ET) Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson hit a three run home run to help lead Toronto to a win over Minnesota on Friday. 

Donaldson went 2 for 5. The homer was his 14th of the year and brought him to 38 RBI. 


Giants closer Santiago Casilla gives up a run, gets 15th save
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:03 am ET) Giants closer Santiago Casilla made things interesting on Friday night, but was able to nail down his 15th save of the season in the 4-2 win over the Braves. Casilla entered the game with a 4-1 lead in the top of the ninth inning.

With one out, the right-hander promptly served up a solo home run to Freddie Freeman and then walked Nick Markakis. After getting Chris Johnson to strike out, Casilla loaded the bases by walking A.J. Pierzynski.

Finally, Casilla was able to get Todd Cunningham to ground out and end the game. Though shaky, this was the first time Casilla gave up a run since April 25, and sports a fine 1.66 ERA on the season. 


Giants C Buster Posey homers, drives in three in win on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:58 am ET) Giants catcher Buster Posey was involved in all of the team's offense during Friday's 4-2 victory over the Braves. Posey got the scoring started with a two-run home run in the first inning, and then added an RBI-double and scored a run in the eighth.

The home run was Posey's eighth of the season. The two-hit performance brought his season batting average just over the .300 mark. 


Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz gets tough-luck loss on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:56 am ET) Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz went 6 2/3 strong innings in the 4-2 loss to the Giants on Friday. The young right-hander allowed two runs on five hits, walked one and struck out eight. The only runs he gave up came on a two-run home run from Buster Posey in the first inning.

Strangely, Foltynewicz actually struck out three batters in his final inning, but two of them reached on wild pitches. Luis Avilan was called upon to get the final out of the seventh. 

Nevertheless, it was still an impressive outing for the 24-year-old. Foltynewicz will take a 3-2 record and 3.96 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Arizona.


Giants SP Tim Hudson stymies Braves offense in win on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:55 am ET) Giants starter Tim Hudson was excellent against his former team on Friday. Hudson limited the Braves to one run on five hits over seven innings. He struck out four and did not allow a walk in the 4-2 victory.

Hudson (3-4) lowered his ERA to 4.62 with the superb outing. The only run he gave up came on a Cameron Maybin RBI single in the third inning. He needed just 83 pitches to get through his seven innings.

The veteran right-hander will look to keep rolling in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday at home against the Pirates.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:42 am ET) Twins closer Glen Perkins took the loss against Toronto on Friday, after giving up two runs in 1/3 of an inning.

Perkins entered the tie game to start the ninth and allowed three hits, including a home run, and a walk. 

Perkins dropped to 0-1 and saw his ERA grow to 1.96.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:35 am ET) Twins starter Trevor May allowed four runs over six innings in a no-decision against Toronto on Friday. 

May gave up eight hits and a walk, while striking out five. He also surrendered a home run. His next start is Wednesday, at Boston. 


Mark Buehrle earns complete game win for Blue Jays
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:28 am ET) Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle pitched a complete game for the win on Friday, against Minnesota. 

Buehrle allowed four runs on six hits and moved to 6-4 on the season. He didn't walk a batter and struck out three. His next start is Wednesday against Washington. 


Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt gets three hits on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:11 am ET) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt contiued his torrid pace at the plate in Friday's win over the Brewers. Goldschmidt went 3 for 5 with a double and scored twice in the 7-5 victory.

Goldschmidt now has 13 hits in 35 at-bats over his last 10 games. He has two home runs and six RBI over that stretch.


Diamondbacks CF A.J. Pollock goes yard in win on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:09 am ET) Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock gave his team some breathing room with a two-run home run in the top of the ninth on Friday. The homer, his fifth of the season, put the Arizona up 7-4, as they went on to beat the Brewers 7-5. 

Pollock joined the outfield-home run party, as all three members of the Diamondbacks' outfield went deep on Friday. Pollock has now hit safely in nine of his last 10 games.
