Eduardo Rodriguez allowed two runs on three hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Angels.

Rodriguez wasn't as crisp as he could have been -- he issued a trio of walks to go against five strikeouts -- but this was a fine performance on the whole. Zack Cozart knocked him for an RBI single in the second inning and Chris Young cracked him for a solo home run in the fifth inning, but otherwise, he was able to keep out of major trouble. This start out the way, Rodriguez will now bring a 3.45 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 20/7 K/BB ratio (15 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Blue Jays in his next scheduled outing.

Nick Tropeano surrendered five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

Tropeano struck out three and walked two on the evening. The lava-hot Mookie Betts cracked him for a solo home run in the first inning to put the Angels behind the eight-ball early, while two-run spots by the Sox in the fourth and sixth innings capped off the scoring on his line. This start was a disappointing step back after he impressed with 6 2/3 scoreless frames against the Royals in his season-debut last time out (he did not initially make the Opening Day roster). The right-hander won't have an easier assignment next time out, as he will be heading out to Houston for a date with the Astros.

Giants optioned RHP Derek Law to Triple-A Sacramento.

Law looks like he will be the roster casualty with Jeff Samardzija (pectoral) set to rejoin the Giants on Friday. In two appearances since his call-up earlier this month, the 27-year-old right-hander surrendered three runs (two earned) on two hits across 3 1/3 innings. He posted an uncomfortable 5.06 ERA in 41 innings of relief work with the Giants last season.

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a homer, two RBI and four runs scored as the Brewers thumped the Marlins 12-3 on Thursday.

Cain ripped a Dillon Peters pitch over the left field wall in the fifth inning, his second homer of the year. He added an RBI double in the sixth, and also had another double and a walk in the game. The good performance raised his average back up to over .300, leaving his line at .303/.390/.485 through 18 games. He's also stolen four bases, ranking among the league leaders in the category. The reunion has gone well thus far.

Lewis Brinson hit two homers, driving in three runs, in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

Playing against his former team, Brinson showed the upside that made the Marlins interested in him as the centerpiece for Christian Yelich, smashing a solo shot to center off Chase Anderson in the third inning before blasting a two-run shot off Anderson in the fifth. The homers were the first of the year for the 23-year-old. It was a rare bright spot in the early part of the year for Brinson, who's hitting just .156/.206/.250 in 17 games.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Silvino Bracho to Triple-A Reno.

Bracho was called up on April 15 and saw playing time in one game prior to being dropped back down to Triple-A on Thursday evening. In his lone appearance, he put in three innings of work against the Marlins, allowing one run on three hits with a strong seven strikeouts in that cup of coffee. He could see time with the big league team again later this season depending on when the D-Backs need an additional bullpen arm.
Apr 20 - 12:37 AM

Jesus Aguilar went 3-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Aguilar had an RBI double in the fifth inning before knocking a two-run single in the sixth. He also had another double in the contest. The 27-year-old has proven a very productive platoon hitter, playing primarily against lefties, and he's hitting .414/.485/.552 in 29 at-bats this year.
Apr 20 - 12:36 AM

Ryan Braun (calf) hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Braun said before the game that he hoped his calf was well enough that he could play Friday, and he found his way into Thursday's game at a pivotal point in the sixth inning. He certainly seemed well enough, ripping a Junichi Tazawa offering over the left-center field wall for the three-run shot. It was also his 1,000th career RBI. Assuming no setbacks, Braun should be back in the lineup Friday. He's hitting .214/.250/.464 on the year.
