Randall Delgado allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits over four innings in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Delgado had been working solely as a reliever prior to drawing the spot start against the White Sox in place of Taijuan Walker (blister). He pitched well enough in his stead, striking out three and walking one on the afternoon. Leury Garcia cracked a solo homer off him in the second inning and one more run came in on a double play in the fourth, but Delgado otherwise kept the White Sox at bay. He finished his outing having thrown 61 pitches (36 strikes). It remains to be seen whether he will be needed for another start before Walker returns to action.

Jose Quintana was crushed for eight runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Quintana started out the game as sharp as can be, but ran into trouble in the fourth inning, when the Diamondbacks burned him for two runs. Things would unravel to considerably more disturbing degrees in the fifth. The six-run frame started with a two-run homer by Jake Lamb and devolved from there. While Quintana did strike out seven (with no walks), this was a start he will try to forget as soon as possible. It caused his ERA to rise from 3.92 to 4.82. He will look for a more respectable showing in a home start against the Red Sox next time he takes to the mound.
May 24 - 6:46 PM

Joc Pederson (neck) is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Pederson was involved in a nasty outfield collision with Yasiel Puig on Tuesday, with both players crumpling to the ground after running into each other chasing a fly ball. While Puig is in the lineup and hitting eighth on Wednesday, Pederson will rest, as he is still experiencing soreness in his neck. Chris Taylor is manning center in his place.
May 24 - 6:39 PM

Khris Davis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Marlins.

Davis smacked a two-run home run off Edinson Volquez with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was his 14th of the season, putting him one behind Yankees phenom Aaron Judge (15) for the MLB lead. Davis' power output is marvelous. His .220 batting average less so.
May 24 - 6:32 PM

Jed Lowrie went 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Marlins.

Lowrie did a nice job giving the A's bullpen a little bit of insurance, bumping his crew to a 3-1 advantage with an RBI double in the fifth inning and increasing it to 4-1 with his RBI single in the seventh. He has been wielding a sizzling bat of late, having picked up 13 hits in his last 25 at-bats. In that space, he has doubled four times, homered twice and driven in six runs. He is slashing .300/.368/.488 with six homers and 15 RBI for the season as a whole.
May 24 - 6:28 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Ozuna's double off Sonny Gray (No. 8 on the season) was the only extra-base hit the Marlins could manage in the game. He struck out in his other three at-bats. The outfielder has notched two-baggers in each of his last two games and is now working on a five-game hitting streak. He is slashing .306/.377/.547 on the season.
May 24 - 6:21 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Quiet day for Stanton and a quiet offensive day for his team on the whole. Marlins batters struck out 13 times in the game, with 11 of those coming against Sonny Gray. For the season, the slugger is slashing .269/.335/.520 with 11 homers and 31 RBI through 45 games played.
May 24 - 6:21 PM

Sonny Gray was brilliant in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Marlins, surrendering just one run while striking out 11 over seven innings.

Gray allowed just three hits on the afternoon. The lone run to score on his watch came when Dee Gordon scored on a wild pitch in the fourth inning. After failing to strike out more than four in any of his first three starts, Gray has fanned 19 in his last two outings (covering 13 innings). He will look to build on Wednesday's brilliance when he carries his 3.34 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio into a road date with the Indians next time he takes to the mound.
