Kike Hernandez is one of the seldom-used Los Angeles Dodgers. The backup outfielder took full advantage of a rare start and was the catalyst on offense for the Dodgers in their 4-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.

While the San Francisco Giants have had little trouble scoring runs on the road for Chris Heston, the Miami Marlins haven’t done anything at the plate to support Dan Haren of late. As Heston tries to record a fourth consecutive road victory while pitching for the first time in his home state, Haren looks to avoid his fourth straight losing decision Wednesday night. Despite a 4.43 ERA, Heston (8-5, 3.73 ERA) is 5-1 in seven road starts and has received an average 8.65 runs of support – second highest in the majors.

Kyle Hendricks outpitched Jonathon Niese in a matchup of feeble offenses, and Matt Szczur provided the one big hit Tuesday night as the Chicago Cubs snapped a five-game skid with a 1-0 victory over the New York Mets. Hendricks (3-4) pitched three-hit ball for six innings and combined with three relievers to bail out the Cubs, who scored just six runs during their losing streak. Szczur had an RBI double off Niese (3-8) in the sixth, the team’s only hit in five chances with runners in scoring position.

Cespedes has been known for his prodigious strength – home runs sailing well beyond the wall, and baserunners thrown out from almost impossible distances.
