"It's a good pitcher's park," Roenicke said. "Any time a pitcher goes to a good park, whether it's there, whether it's San Francisco, Seattle, Kansas City, it's a plus if you're a pitcher.
"I talked to Zack Greinke about it when he came over from Kansas City, and he had to pitch differently. He said, 'In Kansas City, when I got behind in the count, I threw right-handers a fastball away and said, go ahead and hit it as far as you want.' He said he came here and did the same thing and they were home runs."
• Roenicke said he has been communicating with All-Star shortstop Jean Segura about possibly taking a day off here or there. Segura entered Friday 10 for his last 48 (.208) with just one extra-base hit and two stolen bases during that span.
"I talk to him all the time about it," Roenicke said. "He'll let me know when he's out of gas. I don't really see him slowing down. I know the production offensively isn't the same as it was in the first half. Maybe that's fatigue, maybe that's pitchers figuring him out a little bit. Right now, we've got a couple off-days coming up that should help revitalize him a little bit."
