Adam Jones went 3-for-4 in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

All three hits were singles for Jones. It's been a very disappointing season for the long-time Baltimore outfielder, and he's still hitting just .267/.284/.439 on his 2018 campaign with seven homers and an ugly 38/4 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
May 20 - 5:02 PM

Welington Castillo went 2-for-3 with his sixth home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Castillo took Rangers starter Mike Minor deep in the second inning to get the Sox on the board, and it turned out to be the difference in the game with Reynaldo Lopez putting on a clinic on the other side. Castillo has six homers and 14 RBI in 30 games this year. The veteran backstop is hitting a respectable .260/.306/.471 overall.
May 20 - 5:02 PM

Indians purchased the contract of OF Melky Cabrera from Triple-A Columbus.

The veteran outfielder played in 10 games at Triple-A Columbus, hitting .286/.286/.381 with no homers and four RBI. He's in the lineup on Sunday against the Astros, batting sixth and playing right field.
May 20 - 5:01 PM

Mookie Betts doubled and walked in a win over the Orioles on Sunday.

Ho-hum. The double is the 19th on the season, and the prolific Betts has reached via walk 20 times on the year. On top of those numbers, he's hitting .365/.438/.760 on the season, and he's homered 15 times and stolen 11 bases on 13 attempts.
May 20 - 4:59 PM

Andrew Benintendi went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer on Sunday in a win over the Orioles.

Benintendi now has five homers on the year, with this one coming off of Baltimore starter David Hess with a runner on in the fifth inning. The left-handed hitting outfielder's slash is up to .285/.367/.477, and he's driven in 29 runs and stolen eight bases on as many attempts over the first 44 games on his 2018 campaign.
May 20 - 4:56 PM

David Hess gave up five runs in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

Hess couldn’t keep the ball in the park in this one, as he gave up three homers against the Boston lineup; two of them by J.D. Martinez. The 24-year-old also allowed eight hits, and has allowed 14 knocks in just 10 ⅔ innings at the MLB level. Baltimore has no assigned starter for Friday’s game against the Rays, so Hess could get another crack at success against Tampa Bay. Whether or not he should is a different question.
May 20 - 4:53 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez fired 5 2/3 scoreless innings on Sunday with seven strikeouts in a win over the Orioles.

Rodriguez was fortunate -- borderline lucky -- to come out of the game scoreless, as he allowed nine hits in the start against Baltimore. He was able to make the key pitch when he needed to, however, and Heath Hembree cleaned up a bases loaded jam for the left-hander to end the sixth. Rodriguez now has an ERA on the season of 4.13, and he’s been able to strike out 58 hitters in 48 innings. He’ll be back on the mound on Saturday when he takes on the Braves in Fenway Park.
May 20 - 4:52 PM

J.D. Martinez homered twice in a 5-0 blanking of the Orioles on Sunday.

Martinez also drew a walk. The first homer was a solo shot off of Baltimore starter David Hess, and he got Hess again with a runner on in the fifth. He now has 15 blasts on the season, and his three runs batted have him sitting at 41 on the season. Simply put, Martinez is one of the best offensive players in baseball, and he's proven as much so far in 2018.
