Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and a solo home run to help the Cubs take down the Cardinals on Wednesday.

It was a back-and-forth affair between the NL Central rivals. Rizzo hit a solo home run in the third inning to push the Cubs' lead to 3-1. He added a two-run double in the fifth, making it a 5-2 ballgame. He's now on a seven-game hitting streak, batting .341/.474/.593 overall with five home runs, 15 RBI, and seven stolen bases.

Francisco Rodriguez got his sixth save of the season when he closed out Wednesday's 6-3 win against the Dodgers.

Rodriguez allowed a leadoff double to Adrian Gonzalez, but sandwiched strikeouts of Justin Turner and Scott Van Slyke around an Andre Ethier fly out. The right-hander is perfect in six save opportunities with a 1.64 ERA and a 14/2 K/BB ratio in 11 innings.

Carlos Peguero went 3-for-4 with two homers Wednesday as the Rangers crushed the Astros 11-3.

Peguero, who didn't have a homer until Tuesday, is now tied for the Rangers lead at three with Kyle Blanks, who was just called up last week. Peguero has struck out a whopping 20 times in 41 official at-bats, but the power is real and he does have 10 walks to go along with his .238 average. He should be a fixture against right-handers until Josh Hamilton returns.
May 6 - 11:11 PM

Wily Peralta pitched eight strong innings in a win against the Dodgers on Wednesday, yielding three runs (two earned).

Both earned runs came on Joc Pederson solo home runs. The unearned run came in the fourth inning when Justin Turner scored as a result of shortstop Jean Segura's throwing error on an Andre Ethier infield single. Peralta scattered seven hits, walked none, and struck out six. He's now in the win column at 1-4 with a 3.92 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP, and a 24/8 K/BB ratio in 39 innings. He'll look to keep it going next week at home against the White Sox.
May 6 - 11:09 PM

Colby Lewis pitched eight innings of one-run ball to defeat the Astros on Wednesday.

Lewis has been one of the Rangers' few pleasant surprises this far, going 2-2 with a 2.61 ERA and a 1.08 ERA. Somehow, he's allowed just three homers in 38 innings. Last year, he gave up 25 in 170 1/3. The homers will come, so Lewis still shouldn't be picked up in mixed leagues.
May 6 - 11:08 PM

Samuel Deduno was left in to give up 10 runs in 4 2/3 innings versus the Rangers on Wednesday.

Well, that's not very nice. The Astros were short-handed in the pen tonight and thus left him in to take the beating that raised his ERA from 2.70 to 7.00. Deduno was making his second straight start, but he'll probably return to the pen next time through.
May 6 - 11:06 PM

Joe Wieland, making his 2015 debut, was hit hard early by the Brewers in a loss Wednesday as he gave up six runs over 4 2/3 innings.

The Brewers jumped out to a 5-0 lead after the first inning, helped by a pair of two-run home runs from Scooter Gennett and Adam Lind. To his credit, Wieland settled down from there. Overall, he gave up six hits and four walks while striking out two. The Dodgers are in need of starting pitching help with Hyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy sidelined, but they may look elsewhere after Wieland's shellacking. If he's allowed to make his next scheduled start, it will come at home against the Marlins.
May 6 - 11:06 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss versus the Brewers.

Jimmy Rollins and Howie Kendrick, batting in front of Gonzalez, were each held hitless, so he had no runners to drive in. The three hitters behind him combined to go 2-for-12 so they couldn't bring him home any of the three times he reached base. As much as Gonzalez tried, he couldn't do it himself. The slugger has an outstanding .370/.442/.740 batting line with nine home runs and 22 RBI this season.
