Matt Shoemaker hurled seven scoreless innings but got a no-decision as the Angels lost 4-0 in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Shoemaker was locked in a pitcher's duel with opposing starter Odrisamer Despaigne. The right-hander allowed only four hits -- all singles -- along with a walk and six strikeouts. He's had a forgettable 2015 campaign, carrying a 5.44 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP and a 48/10 K/BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings, but he has plenty of time to turn things around. He has allowed 13 home runs, a rate of more than two per nine innings, which is not something he is likely to sustain over the long haul. Shoemaker will take on the Tigers in a home start next.

Matt Joyce went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's 10-inning loss to the Padres.

Joyce, despite getting almost all of his playing time this season against right-handed pitching, has struggled through the first two months. Tuesday's outing moves his triple-slash line down to .172/.246/.258. His struggles may prompt the Angels to acquire an outfielder leading up to the trade deadline in July.

Odrisamer Despaigne held the Angels scoreless over six innings of work but got a no-decision as the Padres won in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Despaigne scattered five hits -- all singles -- without issuing a walk and striking out five. The Angels only had a runner reach scoring position three times and they, obviously, failed each time. Despaigne's most recent two starts have been much better than his first two starts after rejoining the rotation in early May but he still carries a lackluster 5.23 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 21/11 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings. Despaigne matches up against the Pirates at home in his next start.
May 27 - 1:38 AM

Matt Kemp hit a bases-clearing double in the 10th inning to break a scoreless tie and send the Padres to a victory against the Angels on Tuesday.

Kemp made reliever Joe Smith pay for a single and two walks by clearing the bases with a double to left field. He scored not long after and finished the night 1-for-5. It marks his first multi-RBI game since April 29 as he has hit the skids offensively. Kemp is hitting .255/.291/.348 with only one home run and 25 RBI.
May 27 - 1:35 AM

Joakim Soria held the Athletics scoreless in the ninth inning, earning his 14th save as the Tigers held on to win 1-0 on Tuesday.

Soria allowed a two-out double to Sam Fuld, but got Billy Burns to fly out to left field to end the game. It was the first time Soria had pitched since blowing the save against the Astros on May 21. He's 14-for-15 in save chances thus far with a 1.33 ERA and a 15/3 K/BB ratio in 20 innings.
May 27 - 1:13 AM

Mike Pelfrey allowed just one run over seven innings of work Tuesday, helping the Twins to squeak by the Red Sox 2-1.

Pelfrey allowed a second inning RBI single by Mike Napoli, but he was otherwise stellar in the outing. The right-hander yielded just five hits and a walk in total, striking out four. The win ran his record to 4-1, and Pelfrey owns a 2.77 ERA and 1.25 WHIP through nine starts. He'll have a shot at duplicating his success when the two clubs square off again Monday at Fenway Park.
May 27 - 1:11 AM

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and scored the only run as the Tigers eked out a victory against the Athletics on Tuesday.

Gose led off the game with a single, then stole second and advanced to third base on catcher Josh Phegley's throwing error. He promptly scored on a Rajai Davis sacrifice fly. Gose, on a six-game hitting streak, has quietly been a force at the top of the Tigers' lineup, batting .338/.374/.475 with eight stolen bases, 20 runs scored, and 11 RBI.
May 27 - 1:11 AM

Jesse Chavez wasn't provided any run support, taking the loss despite holding the Tigers to an unearned run over eight innings.

Chavez allowed a first-inning run on a Rajai Davis sacrifice fly and it turned out to be the game-deciding run as the A's fell 1-0. Chavez gave up only five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. The right-hander is 1-5 since entering the Athletics' rotation in late April, but has a 2.80 ERA with a 36/14 K/BB ratio in 45 innings as a starter. Chavez will try to get back in the win column over the weekend at home against the Yankees.
