Yangervis Solarte goes yard for first time
Cole Hamels pitches seven innings in rehab finale
Hamels tossed seven strong innings, allowing just one run on three hits. He walked one batter and struck out two while working efficiently throwing 57 of 81 pitches for strikes in the no-decision.
Hamels will likely make his return to the rotation next Tuesday against the Dodgers, after opening the season on the disabled list with a shoulder injury.
Andrew McCutchen finally slugs first homer
McCutchen's homerless drought reached 15 games with the end of his last appearance, and he wasn't interested in letting it leak into a 16th game, as he took Yovani Gallardo deep in the bottom of the first for a 422-foot slam to center field. McCutchen drove in two runs on that swing, and added one more RBI on a fielder's choice later in the game, finishing 1 for 5 and extending his hitting streak to six games.
McCutchen has set the bar pretty high with his play in recent seasons, so his .262/.378/.410 line through 16 games is a disappointment so far. He has still driven in eight runs and score seven, with six extra-base hits in 61 at-bats.
