Hunter Pence went 3-for-5 and drove home three runs on Sunday as the Giants topped the Rockies 8-3 in an afternoon showdown at Coors Field.

Pence, who missed most of the week with a hamstring injury, doubled three times in the game and scored a pair of runs. He has been a force in the middle of the Giants lineup when healthy this season, slashing .304/.384/.503 with seven homers and 36 RBI.
May 29 - 9:34 PM

Johnny Cueto earned his eighth victory of the season on Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits over six innings against the Rockies at Coors Field.

The right-hander punched out five while walking two in the contest. He has been everything that the Giants could have hoped for thus far, registering a 2.31 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 72/14 K/BB ratio across 81 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling when he takes on Cardinals in St. Louis on Friday.
May 29 - 9:31 PM

Carlos Gonzalez belted his eighth home run of the season as the Rockies fell to the Giants on Sunday afternoon in Colorado.

His solo shot came in the eighth inning, after the outcome of the game had already been long decided. Gonzalez also singled in the ballgame, finishing the day 2-for-4 to raise his season slash to .297/.335/.484 to go along with eight homers and 18 RBI.
May 29 - 9:27 PM

Chris Rusin was hit hard in Sunday's loss to the Giants, surrendering six runs on 11 hits over his five frames.

Rusin walked three and struck out three in the contest. The Giants got to him early and often in this one, scoring all six of their runs in the first four innings, including a solo homer by Denard Span. Now 1-3 on the season, Rusin will carry a 4.75 ERA and 1.51 WHIP into Friday's start against the Padres in San Diego.

Carlos Correa hit a pinch-hit three-run shot in the top of the 13th inning as the Astros beat the Angels 8-6 on Sunday afternoon in Anaheim.

Correa had been stuck in an offensive rut and was supposed to get a mental day of rest in the series finale at Angel Stadium, but Astros manager A.J. Hinch called for him to bat for Tony Kemp with two outs in the 13th after Tyler White and Marwin Gonzalez singled against Anaheim reliever Mike Morin. Correa did his thing, jacking a three-run, go-ahead shot to left-center. The star 21-year-old shortstop has 30 homers and 93 RBI through his first 149 major league games. (He also has 22 career steals).
May 29 - 8:42 PM

Nick Tropeano allowed four earned runs over five innings Sunday as the Angels fell to the Astros.

Tropeano escaped with a no-decision in the 13-inning affair. He walked five and gave up seven hits, watching his WHIP rise to 1.55. The 25-year-old right-hander still holds an impressive 3.25 ERA and he's whiffed a batter per inning, but he is nothing more than a matchup-to-matchup streamer in standard fantasy leagues. Tropeano will face the Pirates in Pittsburgh next.
May 29 - 8:36 PM

Doug Fister gave up three runs -- one earned -- over six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Angels.

Houston won in 13 innings to take two of three games in the weekend series. Fister yielded a solo shot to Kole Calhoun in the bottom of the first before giving up messy runs in the fifth and sixth. The right-hander has been in a groove since early May and is now sporting a 3.86 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through 60 2/3 innings with Houston. He's never going to rack up strikeouts, but he should remain valuable in the rate stats department. Fister gets the A's at home next.
May 29 - 8:36 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Edwin Escobar from Triple-A Reno.

He will debut for the Diamondbacks on Monday against the Astros. Escobar posted underwhelming numbers in the minor leagues and should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
