David Robertson pitched a scoreless 11th inning Friday against the Astros to convert his 10th save of the season.

After blowing back-to-back saves earlier this week, Robertson bounced back nicely in this one, working around a two-out single to finish off the victory. The 30-year-old has a 2.49 ERA and 32/3 K/BB ratio over 21 2/3 innings of work this season and is clearly a top-tier closer in fantasy leagues.

Carlos Rodon yielded three runs (one earned) over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday.

In a battle of rookies, Rodon had the upper hand on this night. The southpaw allowed just one run over the first five innings before a pair of errors allowed two runs to score in the sixth. He struck out four and walked none, which is a nice sign of progress considering that he issued 15 walks over his first three starts. He'll bring a 3.45 ERA into a start against the Rangers on the road next week.

Lance McCullers gave up two runs (one earned) and lasted just 4 1/3 innings Friday against the White Sox.

McCullers was pulled after loading the bases in the fifth inning. The rookie right-hander notched seven strikeouts in his brief outing, but he allowed a bunch of baserunners, giving up five hits and two walks while hitting two batters. He has failed to complete five innings in two out of his first three starts in the majors. He'll look to go a bit longer against the Orioles next week in another home start.
May 30 - 12:40 AM

Gordon Beckham had a sacrifice fly and a solo home run Friday against the Astros.

Beckham, who entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning, tied things up with his solo homer in the eighth and the White Sox eventually won in extras. The 28-year-old has done a nice job in a utility role this season, batting .260 with three home runs, 13 RBI, and a .772 OPS over 37 games.
May 30 - 12:39 AM

Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Friday's loss to the White Sox.

Carter had an RBI single in the fourth inning before hitting a sacrifice fly in the sixth. While he still owns a miserable .185/.287/.333 batting line on the year, he's hitting .264 over his last 16 games. Hey, it's progress.

Nick Ahmed hit a go-ahead solo homer off Jonathan Broxton in the top of the eighth inning as part of a 7-5 win over the Brewers on Friday.

A.J. Pollock added some insurance one inning later with a two-run blast off Corey Knebel. Ahmed has gone deep three times in his last seven games after failing to hit a home run over his first 35 games this season. The 25-year-old is batting just .214/.277/.325 on the year.
May 30 - 12:15 AM

Brad Ziegler allowed a run, but managed to hold on for his third save of the season Friday against the Brewers.

After entering the bottom of the ninth inning with a three-run lead, Ziegler allowed a leadoff double to Gerardo Parra before getting Ryan Braun to ground out. Elian Herrera followed with another ground out to knock in a run, but Ziegler got Aramis Ramirez to fly out to end the ballgame. The sidearmer doesn't miss many bats, so he's not the prototypical closer-type, but he's the best option in Arizona's bullpen right now.
May 30 - 12:15 AM

Rubby De La Rosa gave up four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Friday.

Most of the damage came on the home run ball, as De La Rosa served up a leadoff blast to Carlos Gomez in the first before Adam Lind connected for a two-run shot in the third. De La Rosa struck out four and walked a pair in the no-decision and now has a 4.50 ERA through 10 starts. He's been prone to the home run ball, giving up 10 of them in 64 innings, but his 59/16 K/BB ratio hints at some upside.
