Matt Kemp went 2-for-3 with a run scored in a win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Kemp also reached via walk, so he reached three times against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals on Sunday. It's been an excellent reunion with the Dodgers so far for the outfielder, as seen in his .321/.361/.511 line with five homers and 20 RBI over 44 games in 2018.
May 20 - 5:45 PM

Austin Romine drew the start Sunday and finished 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored against the Royals.

Romine had an RBI single in the fourth inning and also doubled in the game before doing his best Gary Sanchez impression in the ninth, blasting a center-cut fastball out to center. It was his first homer in 15 games this year. Sanchez is the unquestioned top dog post-dish, but Romine has been a capable fill-in when called up, batting .326/.396/.488 to date.
May 20 - 5:44 PM

Stephen Strasburg allowed three runs in 6 2/3 innings on Sunday against the Dodgers.

Strasburg struggled to find the zone too often for his liking against Los Angeles; walking four hitters. He was able to allow strike out seven in that time frame, however, and outside of two homers, his command issues didn’t hurt Strasburg. That’s quite the caveat, however, and it’s fair to say that the 29-year-old was disappointing on Sunday. His ERA now sits at 3.36, and he’s struck out 75 over his 67 innings for the Nationals in 2018. He’s back on the mound on Sunday against the Marlins.
May 20 - 5:42 PM

Josh Fields earned a save by throwing 1 1/3 scoreless innings against the Nationals on Sunday.

Fields came on with the leading 5-2 in the bottom of the eighth, and he gets the save despite the fact the final score was 7-2 because rules. Fields did walk one, but he struck out two while earning his second save of the year and lowering his ERA to 2.08 on the season.
May 20 - 5:41 PM

Miguel Andujar went 3-for-4 with a triple, a home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Royals.

Andujar's homer, a solo shot to the opposite field in the ninth inning, was a bit of an afterthought in a seven-run game, but tell that to the guy who hadn't hit one since April 23. Despite the power drought, the 23-year-old has actually been very sturdy since being promoted, batting .286/.296/.483 with four homers, 16 RBI and 20 runs scored in 37 games. He's settled in nicely at the hot corner for the AL East leaders.
May 20 - 5:40 PM

Ronald Acuña went 2-for-4 with three RBI in a win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Acuña had a two-run single in the seventh, and he hit a sac fly to help the Braves complete their six-run comeback in the bottom of the ninth. The sensational talent has seen his production drop as of late, but still has a .264/.333/.462 line. Not bad for a player that won't turn 21 until December.
May 20 - 5:38 PM

Eric Skoglund allowed eight hits and six runs over five innings in a loss to the Yankees on Sunday.

After two good turns against the Orioles and Rays his last two times out, the southpaw took a step back around another AL East foe. Tyler Austin was his bugaboo Sunday, homering twice and driving in four of the six runs. His recent success followed a slow start, and through eight starts Skoglund owns an ugly 6.15 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. He'll look to get back on the right track Friday when the Royals visit the Rangers.
May 20 - 5:37 PM

Sonny Gray rolled over the Royals on Sunday, allowing one run on four hits over eight innings in a win.

It was a vintage Gray that showed up on this day, as the right-hander induced 12 ground ball outs while walking just one and striking out five. It was easily his longest start of the year -- he hadn't gone past six innings in any of his first eight -- and the one run allowed was his lowest since his season debut on April 1. The win improved him to 3-3 with a 5.48 ERA and 1.63 WHIP. Gray will try to retain that form Saturday when the Angels are in town.
