Worth noting

• Major League Baseball executive vice president of operations Joe Torre awarded Freddie Freeman an RBI after reviewing Freeman's eighth-inning single in a 7-1 win over the Marlins on July 31. Torre overturned the official scorer's ruling that left fielder Greg Dobbs committed an error on the play.

• Dan Uggla's decisive seventh-inning double in Wednesday night's 12-6 win over the Phillies was his fourth bases-loaded hit in the seventh inning or later this year. That tied him with Detroit's Austin Jackson for the highest total in the Majors this season.

• The start time for the Aug. 26 game in San Francisco has been changed to 8:05 p.m. ET. The change was made after ESPN chose the game to be part of its Sunday Night package.
