Worth noting

• Even with Harrison moving into the infield to start in place of second baseman Walker on Wednesday, Starling Marte remained out of the lineup. Instead, Tabata got the nod in left field.

"He's not being banished to the bench for an X-number of days," manager Clint Hurdle said of Marte, in the midst of a 1-for-23 slump that has his average at a season-low .237.

"For right now, we're just keeping him unplugged, giving him an opportunity to work in a different light, and we'll see where it goes."

• Harrison started at his fourth different position during his 17-game lineup incumbency, following turns in left and right field and at third. He carried a .309 average through the first 16 of those games, into Wednesday's action.

Jared Hughes is one of four Major League relievers to be perfect in stranding inherited runners, a minimum of 14. The others are Washington's Jerry Blevins (14 inherited runners), St. Louis' Randy Choate (14) and Tampa Bay's Jake McGee (15).
