Rick Porcello was tagged for six runs in seven innings by the Twins in Wednesday's loss.

Porcello surrendered two homers for the fourth time already this year. That's tied for the most multihomer games he's given up since 2009. Still, he might have gotten away with the homers if not for a fluky three-run third inning today. The rally started with a walk on a pitch that looked like strike-three and the big blow was a little blooper from Torii Hunter that barely landed fair over the first-base big, resulting in a two-run single.

Sean O'Sullivan was demolished by the Mets on Wednesday, allowing seven runs in 5 2/3 innings en route to a loss.

Five of the runs came on four home runs, including two to Lucas Duda and another to opposing pitcher Noah Syndergaard. O'Sullivan gave up 11 hits in total while walking one and striking out two. He had pitched well in May, but he has always had an issue with the long ball so Wednesday's outing is no surprise. O'Sullivan is now 1-4 with a 4.81 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and an 18/8 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings. He'll have to deal with the Reds in a home start next.
May 27 - 3:56 PM

Dustin Pedroia drove in all of Boston's runs with a pair of two-run homers Wednesday against the Twins.

Pedroia has matched his 2014 total with seven homers on the season. Unfortunately, the overall struggles of the Boston lineup have cost him some fantasy value. He's scored just 19 runs in 46 games, a poor total for a top-of-the-order hitter with a solid OBP. He's had 38 singles, eight doubles and 21 walks and been driven in just 12 times.
May 27 - 3:54 PM

Michael Cuddyer went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Mets complete a sweep of the Phillies on Wednesday.

Cuddyer pushed the Mets' lead to 4-0 in the third inning, ripping a two-run shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He had also homered in the series opener against the Phillies. The 36-year-old hasn't looked like the hitter who hit over .330 in consecutive years in 2013-14 with the Rockies. He's batting .262/.331/.396 with five home runs and 22 RBI thus far.
May 27 - 3:53 PM

Kyle Kendrick allowed four runs but lasted 7 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 6-4 victory over the Reds.

Kendrick served up two homers and struck out only one, but he permitted just five hits in total and also issued just one free pass. The outing was his longest of the season in 10 trips to the mound. Kendrick will bring an ugly 6.38 ERA and 31/20 K/BB ratio over 60 2/3 innings into next week's start versus the Dodgers.
May 27 - 3:51 PM

Lucas Duda hit a pair of solo home runs and a double in a 3-for-4 effort Wednesday as the Mets topped the Phillies.

Duda started the scoring in the first inning with a solo shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He victimized O'Sullivan again in the fifth with another solo blast, the last of four home runs the Mets hit against the Phillies' right-hander. Duda also had a multi-homer game on May 21, giving him five in his last six games. He has eight total on the season along with 23 RBI and a .305/.400/.539 batting line.
May 27 - 3:50 PM

Mike Leake was knocked around again Wednesday, surrendering six runs over five innings in a loss to the Rockies.

He served up two home runs among nine hits while also walking a pair. Leake got off to a fantastic start this season but has fallen apart of late, allowing a whopping 20 runs over his last three starts to push his ERA from 2.36 to 4.66. He'll try to bounce back next week in Philadelphia.
May 27 - 3:46 PM

X-rays on Kevin Kiermaier's right ankle came back negative.

Kiermaier was hit on the ankle by a pitch Wednesday, but he'll be fine. "It's all good," he said. "I'll be good to go."
