• Andrew McCutchen has hit all 30 of his home runs since May 8. Ryan Braun, with 31, is the only National League player with more during that stretch.

• Since being pulled from the starting rotation, James McDonald has spent an idle week in the bullpen. But there are no thoughts of completely shutting him down for the season's final two weeks.

"I want to see him get on the mound and pitch, and get after some people," manager Clint Hurdle said. "It's important that he get back on the mound at least a couple of times."

• Due to their recent workload, right-handers Chris Resop, Jared Hughes and Jeff Karstens were not available out of the bullpen for Friday night's game.
