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.

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.
May 3 - 6:19 PM

Avisail Garcia hit three singles in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Garcia finished the game 3-for-4 with a run scored. He was the only White Sox batter to manage more than one hit in the 13-3 loss. The three singles boosted his season slash-line to .342/.381/.430. He's now working on a nine-game hitting streak. During the streak, Garcia is hitting .416. He's starting to show off the potential that led to predictions of a breakout season.
May 3 - 6:09 PM

Giants prospect Mac Williamson clubbed four hits Saturday for Double-A Richmond.

Williamson missed most of last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery and really hadn't done much prior to Saturday. With that said, his .280 average is respectable and it could be just a matter of time until Williamson starts raking. The talented 24-year-old slugged 25 homers with High-A San Jose in 2013.

Shane Victorino (hamstring) isn't expected to return from the disabled list until the Red Sox travel to Oakland on May 11.

While he's first eligible to come off the disabled list on May 8, the Red Sox don't seem keen on the idea of him playing on the turf in Toronto, so they'll push him back a few days as a precautionary measure. He's expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week.
