Cody Bellinger went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

After Willson Contreras hit a solo home run off Clayton Kershaw in the first inning to give the Cubs a 1-0 lead, Bellinger put the Dodgers ahead 3-1 with a three-run shot of his own against Jon Lester in the second inning. They would not trail again in the game. The rookie phenom has slowed by degrees of late, but is still hitting a robust .272/.344/.596 with 10 homers and 28 RBI in just 31 games played.
May 28 - 7:52 PM

Enrique Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Hernandez's three-run home run off Jon Lester in the third inning gave the Dodgers a 6-1 lead. He has been touching home plate quite a bit as of late, having scored six runs in his last four games. In that space, he has also collected two doubles (plus Sunday's home run). Overall, the versatile 25-year-old is slashing .253/.324/.535 with four homers and 16 RBI in 44 games played.
May 28 - 7:46 PM

Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Rizzo socked a two-run home run off Clayton Kershaw with one out in the fourth inning. After a lost start to the season, his bat has begun to catch fire -- he has slugged five homers in his last eight games. For the campaign as a whole, the first baseman is slashing .239/.369/.473 with 12 homers and 30 RBI across 184 at-bats. His buy-low trade window for fantasy purposes is closing rapidly if it has not already shut.
May 28 - 7:46 PM

Javier Baez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Baez socked a solo home run off of an unusually unsettled Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning. The bomb was his eighth of the season. He has picked up multiple hits in three of his last eight games and is now slashing .268/.299/.500 overall.
May 28 - 7:44 PM

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.
May 28 - 7:42 PM

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.
May 28 - 7:40 PM

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

Manny Pina went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Brewers topped the Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon.

Pina tacked on an RBI single in the sixth inning that ran the Brewers' advantage to 8-1. He has been swinging a hot bat this season in his limited action, slashing .315/.358/.483 with a pair of home runs and 13 RBI.
May 28 - 7:09 PM

Keon Broxton tripled and scored a pair of runs on Sunday as the Brewers topped the Diamondbacks.

Broxton led off the game with a three-bagger and scored the game's first run on a fielder's choice off the bat of Hernan Perez. He finished the day 1-for-4 plus a walk and is now hitting .261/.323/.458 with five homers, 14 RBI and 10 stolen bases on the season.
May 28 - 7:06 PM

Brandon Crawford went 1-for-4 with a two-run single and three total RBI in Sunday's win over the Braves.

Crawford drove in his first run via an RBI ground out in the first inning, then later came through in the very next inning with a two-run single to cap off a four-run frame. He has notched hits in eight of his last 10 games and is slashing .266/.297/.424 with a modest three homers and 16 RBI across 139 at-bats this season.
May 28 - 7:03 PM

Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Braves.

Nunez picked up an RBI single off R.A. Dickey in the second inning. The 29-year-old third baseman has been hot of late, collecting 20 hits in 55 at-bats in his last 14 games. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .283/.306/.370 with two homers, 17 RBI, 21 runs scored and 13 steals over the course of 48 games played.
May 28 - 6:57 PM

Nick Markakis went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Not much doing offensively for the Giants in this one, as they finished with just two extra-base hits on the afternoon. For his part, Markakis holds a .301/.376/.392 triple-slash with one homer, 24 RBI and 26 runs scored on the season. The veteran outfielder is working on a six-game hitting streak and has done a nice job hitting for average, but his almost complete lack of power caps his fantasy upside.
May 28 - 6:52 PM

Matt Kemp went 3-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Kemp collected double No. 15 on the season off of Johnny Cueto. This was his fourth multi-hit performance in his last 10 games. The veteran outfielder has done a phenomenal job with the bat this season and is slashing a hearty .344/.379/.588 with eight homers and 27 RBI over the course of 38 games played.
May 28 - 6:47 PM

Johnny Cueto (blisters) tossed six innings of one-run ball while striking out eight in Sunday's win over the Braves.

Cueto has developed blisters on both his right middle finger and right index finger. He is hoping to build up some callouses while pitching through those pesky concerns. Sunday's start was an encouraging one, as Cueto scattered six hits while walking just one without showing any control issues or outward signs of discomfort. Only a Kurt Suzuki RBI ground out in the sixth inning prevented him from a shutout performance. The veteran ace will carry a 4.37 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 68/18 K/BB ratio (70 innings) into a road start against the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.
May 28 - 6:43 PM

R.A. Dickey struggled mightily in Sunday's loss to the Giants, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on six hits over six innings.

Dickey had major issues with his control in this loss, walking five and throwing only 53 of his 87 pitches for strikes. The Giants took early advantage of his ineffectiveness, striking for two runs in the first inning, four in the second and one more in the third before settling down. Veteran knuckleballer Dickey saw his ERA rise from 4.17 to 4.65 with Sunday's dismal showing. He will carry that -- plus an unappealing 1.58 WHIP -- into a road start against the Reds next time he takes to the mound.
