Hector Neris got four outs for his second save of the season Thursday against the Yankees.
Neris faced only one batter in Wednesday's doubleheader, so the Phillies felt comfortable going a little longer with him tonight. Since he did throw 27 pitches in this one, he'll likely be unavailable Friday, which could lead to a save chance for Jose Alvarez or Adam Morgan.

Jordan Montgomery was tagged for five runs in four innings by the Phillies on Thursday.
Montgomery was down 3-0 after facing four batters tonight, and while he did somewhat better from there, he never really settled into much of a groove. Montgomery remains a decent option as a sixth starter in mixed leagues. He'll get the Braves next time out.

Gary Sanchez hit his first homer of the year Thursday against the Phillies.
It was a two-run shot off Nick Pivetta. We hesitate to state that Sanchez has broken out of his slump, but at least he is 3-for-16 this month after going 0-for-15 with 10 strikeouts during July.

M. Franco - 3B
Maikel Franco went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in a win over the Cubs on Thursday.
Cubs starter Tyler Chatwood left a cutter out over the plate in the third inning and Franco reached out and yanked it over the left field wall for a two-run shot. The homer was his third this year, a year that's been pretty true to form for the 27-year-old to this point -- some decent power but not much else. Franco is hitting .250/.246/.518 with 10 RBI and seven runs to go with his three homers in 14 games to date.

Salvador Perez went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's lopsided win over the Cubs.
Perez banged a pair of RBI doubles in the win, capping a six-run third with a run-scoring double before tacking on another run with a double in the fifth. The 30-year-old hasn't shown many lingering effects from his COVID-19 absence during Summer Camp, getting off to a strong .293/.305/.466 line with a pair of homers and seven RBI through the season's first few weeks. He's also batting in a great spot in the Royals' lineup and remains one of the fantasy game's premier hitting options behind the dish.

Nomar Mazara left Thursday's game against the Brewers after being hit by a pitch in the lower body.
Mazara was hit in his left leg by a Freddy Peralta offering in the seventh inning. Adam Engel has replaced him in the lineup. More information on the severity of the injury should be available after the game.

Jorge Soler went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Cubs on Thursday.
Soler and the Royals jumped on Cubs starter Tyler Chatwood, putting up 11 hits and eight runs before the third inning was over. Things only got moderately better for Cubs pitchers from there, as the Royals ended up posting 18 hits and 13 runs. Soler got in on the action with a pair of singles and a solo homer in the seventh inning, his third of the young season. The 28-year-old is hitting .275/.367/.490 with six RBI and six runs scored in 14 games overall this year.

Tyler Chatwood was knocked around by the Royals on Thursday, allowing eight runs on 11 hits over 2 1/3 innings.
Chatwood was virtually unhittable in his first two starts of the year, but there was seemingly nothing the Royals weren't pounding on Thursday. Of his 11 hits allowed, six were for extra bases, including a pair of homers. The poor outing raised his ERA and WHIP from a microscopic 0.71 and 0.789, respectively, to 5.40 and 1.40 after Thursday's start. It's hard to say which Chatwood is the real one, but like always, the answer is probably somewhere in between his two brilliant starts and whatever Thursday was. The Indians present a tough test for the 30-year-old on Wednesday.
