News: Upton (triceps) went 0-for-4 in his return to the lineup Friday. Impact: A left triceps contusion knocked Upton from Tuesday's game and kept him from Wednesday's series finale against Philadelphia, but the 27-year-old was ready to roll following Thursday's off day. Although he's now 0-for-8 to begin September, he's batting .294/.371/.544 with nine homers and 36 RBI since the All-Star break.
