Elias wasn't at his best in his first start since July 2, but he was effective enough in his last outing. The left-hander said he was pleased with his fastball command, but he hopes to refine his curveball in his next start.

Had it not been for a hip cramp in the seventh inning, Walker was on his way to one of his best outings his last time out in Chicago. Walker has had a quality start in six of his last seven outings, which he credits to a more aggressive approach.
