Murphy entered the game hitting .281 with four homers.

Murphy said Saturday he was told his hand is not broken, calling it a "blessing." He adds that his hand is "a little sore," but not as sore as he thought it would be. Murphy says he will not play in either of the split-squad games Saturday and is unlikely to swing a bat until Sunday at the earliest.
