Andrew McCutchen bruised his left knee, came out of Pittsburgh's 6-5 loss to the New York Mets on Thursday and dropped out of the NL batting lead. McCutchen charged in for Daniel Murphy's sinking liner, but his lunge resulted only in the ball short-hopping into his glove. San Francisco's Melky Cabrera, serving a 50-game drug suspension, is hitting .346 but will fall one appearance short of qualifying after the rule for qualifying was changed last week by Major League Baseball and the players' union at Cabrera's request.
