James Paxton turned in his first poor start of the season while taking a no-decision in Thursday's 9-6 loss to the A's, surrendering five runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Paxton entered Thursday's outing having not allowed a run in 21 innings (three starts). He started out against the A's in similar enough fashion, posting zeros over the first two innings. Adam Rosales and Ryon Healy would prove his nemesis, though, with both players picking RBI hits in a three-run third inning. The A's would score twice more in the fifth to drive Paxton from the mound. He finished his evening having struck out eight. The 28-year-old southpaw will carry a 1.78 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 35/5 K/BB ratio (25 1/3 innings) into a road start against the Tigers next time out as he tries his best to cope with having an ERA over 0.00.

Clayton Kershaw did not pitch deep enough to qualify for a decision in Sunday's 9-4 win over the Cubs, surrendering four runs on 11 hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Kershaw struck out six and walked two on the afternoon. Willson Contreras knocked him for a solo home run in the first inning, with Javier Baez and Anthony Rizzo following suit in the fourth inning. Rizzo's was a two-run shot. This start marked a number of worsts for Kershaw this season, including shortest outing and most hits allowed. The four runs surrendered tied the most he has given up in a start. The ace southpaw will look to move past this when he carries his 2.37 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 78/10 K/BB ratio (76 1/3 innings) into a road start against the Brewers next time he toes the rubber.

Jon Lester struggled in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Dodgers, yielding six runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings.

A pair of three-run home runs proved to be the culprit in this disappointing outing, as Cody Bellinger took Lester deep for a three-run shot in the second inning and Kike Hernandez did likewise in the third. He had been pitching to a brilliant 0.86 ERA in his previous three outings before the Dodgers mucked that up on Sunday. The veteran southpaw will try for cleaner results when he carries his 3.86 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 67/23 K/BB ratio (11 starts) into a road showdown with the rival Cardinals next time out.

Domingo Santana went 2-for-4 with a grand slam on Sunday, powering the Brewers to a 9-5 victory over the Diamondbacks.

His game-changing blow came off of Patrick Corbin in the fourth inning. He also doubled and walked in the contest and scored three runs. He looks to be coming into his own this season, slashing .270/.371/.461 with seven homers, 27 RBI and four stolen bases.
May 28 - 7:11 PM

Jimmy Nelson was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks, striking out 10 over seven innings of one-run ball.

Nelson scattered seven hits on the afternoon and didn't walk a batter. The only damage against him came on an RBI double by Chris Iannetta in the fourth inning. Now 3-3 on the season, Nelson will carry a 3.85 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into Friday's start against the Dodgers. While inconsistent, he has shown flashes of brilliance this season and is worth a look as a matchup play or streaming option in mixed leagues.
May 28 - 6:32 PM

Gerardo Parra went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and three runs scored in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Cardinals.

Parra notched a three-run homer off Lance Lynn in the fourth inning to jump the Rockies out to a 4-0 lead. They would go on to win by a final score of 8-4. With this big performance under his belt, he now owns a .279/.301/.442 triple-slash with six homers and 23 RBI in 42 games played. Parra has not hit double-digit home runs since the 2013 season, but looks like he could be on that track this year.

Stanton has managed to stay healthy through the first two months of the season and is producing as expected, now with an .886 OPS, 13 home runs, and 34 RBI in 48 games. He's currently on pace for 44 homers and 115 RBI.

Adam Duvall finished 3-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in the Reds' 8-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

Aaron Judge launched his first career grand slam Sunday in the Yankees' 9-5 win over the A's.

Judge went deep to right in the bottom of the third inning off Athletics starter Andrew Triggs for his MLB-leading 16th home run of the year. He is the youngest Yankee to hit a grand slam since Melky Cabrera in 2006. Judge also singled in the game, finishing 2-for-4, and he's now batting .321/.422/.679.

Mike Trout was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Marlins with a left thumb sprain.

He went for precautionary X-rays which ruled out any fractures. The Angels have yet to comment on how much time, if any, he'll miss due to the injury, but it doesn't sound like it should keep him down for long.
