White Sox: Are 4-3 since 1B Frank Thomas went on the disabled list July 11.

Phillies: Gregg Jefferies, who had a double in four at-bats, has now hit in 12 of his last 13 games (18-for-51, .353).

Rockies: Dante Bichette was caught stealing in the second inning, ending his club-record streak at 13 consecutive stolen bases.

Giants: Started a patchwork infield of Matt Williams at first base, Steve Scarsone at second, Rich Aurilia at short and Steve Decker at third. It was the first career starts for Williams and Decker at those positions.

Reds: Hal Morris was activated and started at first base after going 2-for-4 with a homer and a double in a one-game rehab stint with Triple-A Indianapolis. Morris broke his right elbow July 2 when he was hit by a piece of a broken bat while kneeling in the on-deck circle in St. Louis.

Brewers: In the first two games of their series, Milwaukee and Tigers combined for 46 runs and 61 hits.

Marlins: Greg Colbrunn was one of two hit batters (C Charles Johnson was the other) in Florida's four-run second inning. It was the 10th time Colbrunn has been hit this season, a club record. . . . Jeff Bagwell, who leads the majors in intentional walks and overall walks, walked his first two times up, giving him 85 in his 96th game.
