Prince Fielder blasted a pair of home runs and drove home four runs on Friday as the Rangers outlasted the Yankees 10-9 in a wild game in New York.

The Rangers broke the game open by scoring seven runs in the third inning, with Fielder's three-run blast off starter Michael Pineda serving as the big blow. He tacked on a solo shot off Chasen Shreve in the seventh inning which would end up looming large. He's having a terrific season in the middle of the Rangers lineup, batting .341/.397/.521 with seven homers and 27 RBI.

Ross Ohlendorf earned his first career save on Friday, getting the final three outs against the Yankees.

He did allow a solo home run to Mark Teixeira, but was able to avoid any further damage. With Shawn Tolleson unavailable after working the previous two games, Rangers manager Jeff Bannister had to turn elsewhere and landed on Ohlendorf to protect a two-run advantage in the ninth. His usage speaks volumes about Neftali Feliz's current role in the Rangers bullpen.

Colby Lewis earned his fourth victory of the season on Friday, despite allowing five runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings against the Yankees.

The veteran right-hander struck out three on the night and didn't issue a walk. The Rangers offense staked him to an early 7-0 lead in this one, but he gave several runs back to let the Yankees back into the game before departing. While he boasts a solid 3.49 ERA and 44/14 K/BB ratio through 56 2/3 innings on the season, his 4.32 xFIP indicates he may be pitching a bit over his head. He'll take on the Indians in Cleveland his next time out on Wednesday.
May 22 - 11:03 PM

Didi Gregorius launched a three-run homer on Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Yankees to overcome the Rangers.

His three-run shot, his first of the season, came off Rangers starter Colby Lewis in the fourth inning, cutting the Rangers lead to 7-4 at the time. He has been a major disappointment at the dish early in the season, slashing a mere .217/.278/.278 with 10 RBI.
May 22 - 11:00 PM

Michael Pineda was clobbered in a losing effort against the Rangers on Friday, allowing seven runs (four earned) on eight hits over his six innings.

Pineda struck out four on the night while walking one. All of the damage against him came in the seven-run third inning, highlighted by homers from Prince Fielder and Mitch Moreland. Now 5-2 on the season, Pineda will bring a 3.59 ERA and 59/4 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Royals.
May 22 - 10:57 PM

Carlos Carrasco yielded two runs over six innings in Friday's 7-3 win over the Reds.

Carrasco struck out the side in his final inning of work and finished with seven punch-outs. He held the Indians to just four hits and two walks. Carrasco improved to 5-4 with the victory and has a 4.74 ERA over nine starts. That's not exactly what fantasy owners were hoping for, but his 58/12 K/BB ratio in 49 1/3 innings indicates that he's doing just fine.
May 22 - 10:49 PM

Mike Leake struggled with his control in giving up five runs over four innings in a loss to the Indians on Friday.

It was his shortest start of the season. Leake allowed seven hits and walked five batters while throwing just 44 out of 81 pitches for strikes. He also failed to strike out a batter for the first time this season. With back-to-back poor starts, his ERA now sits at 4.14 for the year. He'll look to rebound against the Rockies at home next week.
May 22 - 10:48 PM

Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with two RBI, two runs scored, and a walk Friday against the Reds.

Another huge night for Kipnis. He's now hitting .463 this month, with 12 multi-hit games. After finishing April with a .218 batting average, he now sits among the league leaders with a .337 batting average.
