Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller is Friday's Player of the Day. The rookie gave up only one hit and struck out eight over seven innings in the 2-0 win over the Brewers.
Indians pitcher Justin Masterson is American League Player of the Day. Masterson threw a complete-game 1-0 shutout against the White Sox, striking out seven and giving up only one walk and five hits. Masterson now leads all players in Box-Toppers points for the 2013 season with 4.7.
Daniel Murphy of the Mets was National League Batter of the Day. Murphy went 4-for-5 and drove in four runs in the 16-5 win over the Twins.
No AL batter was named Player of the Game, so no bonus points were awarded Friday for AL Batter of the Day.
Miller receives two Box-Toppers points for being named Player of the Day. Masterson receives 1.7 for AL Player of the Day. Murphy receives 1.5 points for NL Batter of the Day.
