Chris Herrmann went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

Herrmann also struck out twice, but he at least made his lone hit count. The 28-year-old backstop clocked a two-run shot off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha in the second inning. The dinger was his second of the season. That aside, he has seen just 28 at-bats this season and offers no fantasy upside.
Apr 29 - 12:12 AM

Michael Wacha couldn't quite pick up the win in Thursday's defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks, surrendering three runs on five hits over seven innings.

It was a fine start for Wacha overall, but he couldn't match the superlative De La Rosa, who tossed seven shutout innings. For his part, Wacha struck out nine, walked two and allowed a pair of homers. Chris Herrmann burned him for a two-run shot in the second inning and Brandon Drury smacked a solo homer in the fourth. Wacha will carry a 3.07 ERA and 1.33 WHIP (five starts, 29 1/3 innings) into his next start, a home jaunt against the Phillies.

Rubby De La Rosa was clutch in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals, striking out 10 over seven shutout innings.

De La Rosa allowed just two hits on the evening. He walked two and exited having thrown a tidy 94 pitches (65 strikes). It was a sparkling outing any way you cut it. Through four starts (seven appearances), the 27-year-old right-hander holds a 4.18 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio. A road date with the Marlins shows next on his schedule as he tries to build on Thursday's fantastic start.

Mallex Smith played catalyst from the bottom of the Braves' order Thursday, finishing 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in a 5-3 win over the Red Sox.

Smith actually could have had a bigger night, but his line drive to right field with two on in the second inning bounced over the short Fenway wall, rendering it a ground-rule double and keeping Smith confined to two bases and just one RBI. He also swatted an RBI single in the sixth. It was easily Smith's best game as a member of the Braves, as the speedster is hitting just .188/.278/.292 through 16 games, even with Thursday's outburst.

Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI against the Braves on Thursday.

Ramirez had an RBI single in the first before cracking a run-scoring double in the third. He's driven in a run in four straight games and six of his last seven, giving him 13 RBI overall. After a disappointing first year in his new digs, the 32-year-old is batting .287/.304/.402 as the Red Sox' primary first baseman this season.
Apr 28 - 11:14 PM

Nick Markakis went 4-for-5 with three RBI in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Markakis had a two-run single in the second inning before notching another RBI single two innings later. Playing for the Braves, Markakis has gone largely unnoticed this season, but all the veteran has done is bat .305/.412/.439 with 11 doubles, 19 RBI and nine runs scored. He's likely to be one of the few bright spots for the Braves this season.
Apr 28 - 11:10 PM

Freddie Freeman stayed hot Thursday, finishing 3-for-4 with a walk in a win over the Red Sox.

After an ugly start, Freeman has quietly improved at the plate in recent days. In his last six games, the first baseman is 10-for-23 (.434) with two doubles and two RBI. He's still not hitting the ball over the boards -- he has just two homers on the year -- but the power will come as he continues to get more comfortable at the dish.
Apr 28 - 11:06 PM

Clay Buchholz had a hard time Thursday, allowing five runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Braves.

Buchholz has been remarkably consistent in a bad way this season, allowing exactly five runs in four of his five starts. On Thursday, he walked four to go with his eight hits allowed while striking out just two. Not surprisingly, he's still winless heading into May, as the loss dropped him to 0-3 with a 6.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. A date with the White Sox looms on Tuesday.
