A.J. Pollock went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Pollock had the key hit of the game, snapping a 1-1 tie via a solo home run off Ty Blach to lead off the sixth inning. He's up to four home runs, now, to pair with a .254/.311/.582 batting line. Of his 17 hits this season, a hearty 13 have gone for extra bases. All power comes with a price, though, and Pollock has also struck out eight times in his last 12 at-bats.

Dillon Peters walked five and allowed four runs over 4 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Brewers.

Peters has oscillated good and bad starts, following up a win his last time out with Thursday's clunker. Even in his good starts, he hasn't been dominant -- through Thursday, Peters now has a 12/11 K/BB ratio in four starts. It's tough to trust young hurlers, and that seems to be the case with the 25-year-old as well. Peters will look to improve upon his 6.98 ERA and 1.71 WHIP when the Marlins travel west to face the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Apr 20 - 12:22 AM

Ketel Marte went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Giants.

In what was a low-scoring contest, Marte's solo home run in the seventh inning provided a crucial bit of breathing room, increasing the home team's lead from 2-1 to 3-1. They would ultimately secure victory by that final score. The second baseman is slashing .237/.266/.382 with one homer -- the shot he bopped on Thursday -- and eight RBI through his first 18 games of the 2018 season.

Brandon Belt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Belt got the Giants on the board with a solo home run off Zack Greinke to lead off the second inning. That would finish as the only run the team plated in the loss. It was the first baseman's third dinger of the young campaign. in addition, Belt is working to a .255/.361/.471 triple-slash and has driven in seven runs over the course of 15 games played. He has now homered in back-to-back contests.
Apr 20 - 12:13 AM

Chase Anderson allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Anderson wasn't at the top of his game, serving up a pair of homers among his five hits allowed, but he was good enough on a day when the Brewers provided him 12 runs of support. The win was his second in a row to improve him to 2-1 through five starts, and he owns a 3.25 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 27 2/3 innings. An interleague start with the Royals awaits Anderson on Wednesday.
Apr 20 - 12:13 AM

Andrew McCutchen went 1-for-4 with a double in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

McCutchen had one of the three hits the Giants managed against Zack Greinke across seven frames. He's up to three doubles in his new digs. The veteran outfielder is slashing .211/.282/.338 with two homers, eight RBI and three steals over the course of 68 at-bats this season. It's not been the cleanest of starts, but fantasy owners need to exercise patience. McCutchen has shown the ability to work his way out of extended slumps in the past.
Apr 20 - 12:11 AM

Zack Greinke was on his game in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Giants, firing off seven innings of three-hit, one-run ball.

Greinke wasn't able to do much in terms of the strikeouts -- he finished with just two whiffs on the evening -- but it was a beautiful performance regardless. The veteran ace finished up his evening having thrown just 88 pitches (56 strikes). He kept the scoreboard free and clear of danger outside of a solo home run surrendered to Brandon Belt in the second inning. Beyond the Belt dinger, Gregor Polanco picked up a single and Andrew McCutchen collected a double. And that was it in terms of the hit-damage on Greinke's line. It was a fine rebound showing after he had surrendered a combined nine runs on 14 hits over his previous two outings. Moving forward, Greinke will carry a 4.13 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 23/2 K/BB ratio (24 innings) into a road showdown with the Phillies next time he takes to the rubber.
Apr 20 - 12:09 AM

Ty Blach yielded two runs on six hits over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Blach struck out four and walked three over his six innings of work. An RBI single by David Peralta brought home the first run on his line, in the third inning, with A.J. Pollock finishing off the scoring on his watch via a solo home run in the sixth inning. Through his first five starts of the campaign, Blach owns a 4.10 ERA and 1.59 ERA. The southpaw has been generally serviceable this year, but he rarely rises above that. A home start against the Nationals shows next on his schedule.
