Michael Wacha hurled 6 2/3 innings of scoreless ball Sunday in a no-decision against the Pirates.

Wacha gave up only five hits, and just one of those went for extra bases (a third-inning double by Gregory Polanco). The 23-year-old right-hander's strikeout rate has taken a tumble this year and he struck out only two Pittsburgh batters on Sunday afternoon at Busch Stadium, but the Bucs didn't manage much hard contact. Wacha, 23, boasts a 1.93 ERA in 32 2/3 innings this season. He gets the Pirates again next, this time on the road.

Jung Ho Kang slugged his first major league home run Sunday in the Pirates' loss to the Cardinals.

It was a clutch game-tying solo shot in the top of the ninth inning off Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal. Kang also singled earlier in the 14-inning loss, finishing 2-for-5. He should start to see more regular playing time with Jordy Mercer and Josh Harrison both struggling. Give him some consideration in deeper mixed leagues.

Vance Worley tossed six innings of one-run ball but took a no-decision Sunday against the Cardinals.

Worley yielded just four hits and a walk while striking out five, and the only major blemish on his afternoon was a Matt Carpenter solo jack. But the Pirates' offense managed only two runs on 11 hits in the 14-inning loss at Busch Stadium. Worley will carry a 2-2 record, 3.90 ERA, and 1.40 WHIP into his next start against these same Cardinals. He only has fringe streamer value in standard fantasy leagues.

Alex Gordon went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

As a team, the Royals managed just six hits against Anibal Sanchez and company. Typically a middle-of-the-order bat, Gordon was hitting leadoff on Sunday with normal leadoff man Alcides Escobar currently nursing an injury. Gordon's hitting .269/.380/.449 with three home runs, 13 RBI and 10 runs scored, though he's recorded just one hit in his last 12 at-bats.
May 3 - 6:43 PM

Anibal Sanchez posted a strong start against the Royals on Sunday, surrendering three runs on four hits over 7 1/3 innings.

Sanchez struck out four and walked one in what was one of his better starts this season. The Royals were unable to dent the scoreboard through the first six innings. They scored two in the seventh and another two in the eighth, but the Tigers were able to hang on for the 6-4 victory. Sanchez moved to 2-3 with the win and the outing lowered his ERA to 5.11. He also holds a 1.16 WHIP and a 35/9 K/BB over 37 innings. The last time the 31-year-old posted an ERA higher than 4.00 was in 2008. He'll attempt to put up another good start against the Royals in his next start, this time at home.
May 3 - 6:33 PM

Jeremy Guthrie struggled against the Tigers on Sunday, surrendering six runs in six innings.

The Tigers racked up eleven hits against Guthrie in the contest, with Alex Avila supplying a pair of RBI singles and Miguel Cabrera capping off the scoring with a two-run homer. Guthrie struck out one and did not walk a batter. The rough outing pushed his ERA to 6.52 and his WHIP to 1.59, to go with a 11/10 K/BB. Unfortunately for Guthrie, he'll face these same Tigers again next weekend.
May 3 - 6:29 PM

Brian Dozier tripled and singled three times against the White Sox on Sunday.

Dozier finished the game 4-for-5 with an RBI and run scored. The triple was his first of the 2015 campaign. It's been a bit of a slow start for the second baseman, who posted a 20/20 season last year, but we'll see if this game gets him going. Overall, he's hitting .240/.318/.385 with two home runs, 11 RBI, 18 runs scored and two steals.
May 3 - 6:27 PM

Trevor Plouffe hit a grand slam and drove in five runs in Sunday's 13-3 demolishing of the White Sox.

Plouffe smashed the home run off of beleaguered White Sox starter John Danks in the third inning. The Twins scored seven runs in the inning, then added another four in the fourth inning. Plouffe chipped in an RBI single in that inning, too, on his way to a 3-for-5 day. The Twins racked up 19 hits in the win. Plouffe's now homered in back-to-back games, giving him five for the season. With the recent power surge, he's boosted his slash-line to .278/.356/.478.
