    • Hammel (9-5) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings to earn the win Friday at the Brewers. Hammel was staked to a 4-0 lead in the second inning before allowing single runs in the fourth and fifth innings, leading to his exit from the contest after throwing only 76 pitches. After allowing 10 runs on July 1, he's now held opponents to two runs or fewer in each of his last three starts to lower his ERA to 3.35 on the season. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the White Sox.

    • Cubs' Jason Hammel: Strikes out six Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hammel (7-5) allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings, but received no decision Thursday against the Braves. After giving up a two-run homer, Hammel settled down and held the Braves scoreless until he had to leave the game with cramps in his pitching hand. He left the game with a 2-0 deficit, and was on the hook for a potential loss until the Cubs' offense came up with a three-run eighth inning. Although he hasn't posted a win since June 4, he still has a respectable 3.46 ERA along with a 1.13 WHIP on the year. As long as his injury checks out well, as expected, he'll make his next start after the All-Star break.

    • Hammel exited Thursday's start with cramping in his pitching hand. A leadoff, four-pitch walk to Gordon Beckham in the top of the fifth inning was followed by a long mound visit from the Cubs' training staff. Ultimately, manager Joe Maddon opted to take the cautious route with Hammel and remove him from the game after just 80 pitches due to the cramping in his right hand. Fortunately, the upcoming All-Star break should give Hammel enough downtime to where he can make his next scheduled start. That said, the Cubs will do their due diligence in the coming days to make sure that Hammel's injury isn't more serious than the initial diagnosis.
