Travis Snider LF/RF PIT 7 Hrs

Travis Snider singled, homered, drew a walk, and scored three runs as the Pirates emerged victorious against the Dodgers by a 6-1 margin on Wednesday.

Snider's second-inning solo home run off of Dan Haren was his first easy trot around the bases since June 22. He has played sparingly and carries a mediocre .252/.333/.374 slash line along with five home runs and 17 RBI in 184 plate appearances.

Dan Haren SP LAD 7 Hrs

Dan Haren earned his fourth consecutive loss in Wednesday's start against the Pirates, yielding five runs in five innings.

July has not been kind to Haren, as he's now 0-4 on the month with a 9.47 ERA in 19 innings. The right-hander gave up four hits -- including a home run to Travis Snider -- while walking three and striking out six. Haren has not exactly been the bargain the Dodgers hoped they were getting when they signed him back in November. He carries a 4.49 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 92/26 K/BB ratio. He'll make his final start of the month at home against the Braves next week.

Josh Harrison 2B/3B.. PIT 7 Hrs

Josh Harrison finished 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Wednesday's win against the Dodgers.

The National League All-Star has slumped since returning from the break. In fact, Wednesday's performance was his first multi-RBI game since July 10. He doubled in a pair of runs in the first inning to cap off a four-run outburst. The talented 27-year-old is slashing .291/.329/.437 with five home runs, 31 RBI, and 11 stolen bases.

Francisco Liriano SP PIT 7 Hrs

Francisco Liriano pitched well against the Dodgers on Wednesday, holding them to one run over seven innings en route to his second win of the season.

Liriano didn't have the strikeout stuff working the way he did in his last start against the Rockies, but he limited the Dodgers to four hits and a pair of walks while fanning seven. The lefty finished the seventh inning for the first time since April 21. Now with a 4.18 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 93/47 K/BB ratio, Liriano will look to keep it going against the Giants on the road next week.

Yunel Escobar SS TB 8 Hrs

Yunel Escobar was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals for arguing balls and strikes.

Escobar took a called strike three in the fourth inning and took exception to the call. Home plate umpire Dan Bellino took exception to his exception and threw Escobar out of the game. It was the Rays' second ejection in two nights after manager Joe Maddon was tossed from Tuesday's game in what turned out to be a miscommunication of sorts.

Jorge De La Rosa SP COL 9 Hrs

Jorge De La Rosa struck out 11 batters while allowing two runs -- one earned -- over 7 1/3 innings in the Rockies' 6-4 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

De La Rosa allowed eight hits without walking a batter, and the left-hander hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his four starts this month. The strong outing raised his record to 11-6 with a 4.19 ERA through 21 starts. He'll try to continue his strong stretch of starts when he faces the Cubs at Wrigley next week.

LaTroy Hawkins RP COL 9 Hrs

LaTroy Hawkins allowed two runs and stranded the bases loaded in a non-save situation against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Hawkins entered the game with a four-run lead and got two quick outs before the Nationals strung together four straight hits. A fielding error loaded the bases with the winning run at first, but Ian Desmond struck out to end the threat. Hawkins has a 3.09 ERA after Wednesday's outing, and the struggles of Rex Brothers and Adam Ottavino have given the 41-year-old some job protection in his hold on the Rockies' closer role.

Corey Dickerson LF/CF COL 9 Hrs

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-3 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Dickerson continues to light the world on fire, as he's now got five multi-hit games over his last seven starts. The two-hit, two-double day raised his overall line to .336/.403/.594. The 25-year-old is part of a crowded Rockies outfield, but he's not going anywhere with the numbers he's putting up of late.

Ubaldo Jimenez SP BAL 9 Hrs

Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session and did some running drills Wednesday.

The throwing session was supposed to be the last step before a rehab assignment for Jimenez, who has been on the disabled list since July 11. Jimenez called it a step forward but said he didn't know where or where his next step would be. The right-hander will likely embark on a rehab assignment in the coming days, with a more clear return date to be known at that time.

Denard Span CF WAS 9 Hrs

Denard Span finished 4-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in a loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.

Span played catalyst at the top of the Nationals lineup, doing everything he could to will the team to a comeback victory. The stolen base was his 17th of the season, and the outfielder is hitting .282/.333/.393 with 61 runs scored.
