• Right fielder Norichika Aoki had Sunday off as he continues getting treatment for a sore right knee. He also may be pressing at the plate, going 0-for-7 in the first two games of the homestand after a 5-for-23 (.217) road trip that included the first three-strikeout game of his Major League career.

"I think that was kind of a fluke game for him, but I think he's pressing," Roenicke said. "Any time his average starts coming down, he wants it to get back up there and I think he's pressing, although he brings it right back up. It's getting near the end of the season, he's played an awful lot and he wants to finish strong."
