Dee Gordon had a single, a stolen base and scored the game-winning run in the 11th inning of Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Gordon led off the 11th inning with a single and stole second base, his 16th steal of the year, before motoring around to score the winning run on Jean Segura's single. Gordon got the start at second base in the game, and he's likely to split time between the keystone and center field now that Robinson Cano is out for the foreseeable future. The 30-year-old is hitting a healthy .304/.330/.386 with 25 runs scored and those AL-best 16 steals this year.

Shane Greene allowed two hits, including a two-run home run, in suffering his third blown save of the year Sunday against the Mariners.

Tasked with preserving a two-run lead, Greene gave up a one-out single to Jean Segura before yielding a two-run homer to Mitch Haniger. Greene has 10 saves on the year but has blown three as well, and owns a 4.22 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. Joe Jimenez looms if Greene continues to falter, but his job doesn't seem to be in much jeopardy at the moment, despite Sunday's letdown.
May 20 - 9:47 PM

Wade LeBlanc allowed two runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Tigers.

LeBlanc ran into trouble early, serving up a two-run homer to John Hicks in the first inning, but he did well to keep the Tigers off the board for the rest of his time. He struck out five while issuing one walk in the outing. The southpaw has a strong 2.65 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through nine appearances, including four starts, this year, and he'll look to keep rolling Saturday against the Twins.
May 20 - 9:41 PM

Francisco Liriano allowed a lone hit over eight scoreless innings Sunday, but took a no-decision against the Mariners.

Liriano carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before Mitch Haniger's one-out single. That relegated it to simply a brilliant outing for the southpaw, who had gone 8 1/3 innings in his previous two starts combined. Unfortunately for Liriano, Shane Greene couldn't hold the lead to get him his fourth win. In nine starts this year, Liriano has a 3.42 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. He'll look for that fourth win Saturday against the White Sox.
May 20 - 9:34 PM

Drew Pomeranz will have his next scheduled start pushed back to Saturday against the Braves.

The struggling left-hander had been scheduled to pitch on Thursday against the Rays in Tampa Bay, but the Red Sox will utilize an off-day to give Pomeranz a few extra days of rest. He owns a disappointing 5.97 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 28 2/3 innings on the season.
May 20 - 9:16 PM

Brandon Belt swatted a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning to propel the Giants to a 9-5 win over the Rockies on Sunday.

In a 5-5 game in the seventh inning, Belt stepped to the dish with two on and lefty Jake McGee on the bump for the Rox. Belt delivered, as he has often this year, knocking a three-run jack over the right field wall to give the Giants the late lead. The first baseman has surprisingly been one of the best hitters in the National League this year, batting .313/.413/.594 with 11 homers, 29 RBI and 28 runs scored. He's been especially dangerous in the past week, recording six multi-hit games since last Sunday. Few are locked in like he is right now.
May 20 - 9:13 PM

Trevor Story finished 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Story knocked an RBI double in the fourth inning and added a run-scoring single in the fifth, adding to his RBI total of 35 that's second-best in the National League. Story also has 10 homers, which rank among the league leaders as well, and he's hitting .250/.335/.512 in 47 games.
May 20 - 9:07 PM

Gorkys Hernandez went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in a win over the Rockies on Sunday.

Hernandez muscled up in the fifth inning, lifting a fly ball to center field that just kept carrying and eluded a leaping Charlie Blackmon for the two-run shot. The laser show from Gorkys has been a surprise, as Sunday's homer was his fourth this year after he entered the year with five total homers in 232 career games. The 30-year-old has been a pleasant offensive surprise all around for the Giants this year, batting .279/.308/.430 while hitting leadoff at points for the club.
