Yolmer Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a stolen base Wednesday in Chicago’s loss to the Mariners.

Sanchez began his day with a ground-rule double in the first inning and later scored on an RBI single by Tim Anderson. He led off the third with a base hit and scored another run on a groundout by Daniel Palka. Sanchez went hitless the rest of the day but it was still a strong afternoon for the 25-year-old, who now sports a booming .301 average through 73 at-bats this season.

Yoan Moncada jolted his fifth homer Wednesday in the White Sox’s loss to Seattle.

Moncada led off the first inning by swatting a solo shot off Mariners starter Felix Hernandez. That staked the Pale Hose to an early 1-0 lead, though the White Sox notched just two more runs the rest of the afternoon. Moncada did little to help the cause, striking out in each of his last three at-bats. That’s been an issue for the 22-year-old, who has now punched out a whopping 38 times in only 82 at-bats this season. On the bright side, 12 of Moncado’s 20 hits this year have gone for extra bases.

James Shields scattered six hits and four runs over six innings Wednesday in the White Sox’s loss to the Mariners.

Shields racked up four strikeouts and also issued four free passes. Shields retired the Mariners in order in the first and second innings but came undone in the third, allowing two runs on three hits in the frame. He had a hard time putting away Nelson Cruz and Mike Zunino, who combined to go 4-for-6 with a homer and three RBI against the right-hander. Chicago’s Opening Day starter has struggled to a 6.14 ERA in six outings including five starts this season. He’ll take a 1-3 record into his next start Tuesday at St. Louis.

Mike Zunino contributed a pair of extra-base hits including his second home run of the year Wednesday in the Mariners’ win over the White Sox.

The power-hitting catcher led off the third inning with a double before ripping a solo shot off James Shields in the sixth. Zunino has hit just. 200 since coming off the disabled list last week, though he’s now homered in two of his last three games. That’s been Zunino’s MO throughout his career as the 27-year-old bopped 25 homers last year but is just a .209 lifetime hitter in the big leagues.
Apr 25 - 6:13 PM

Nelson Cruz delivered three hits Wednesday in the Mariners’ win over the White Sox.

Cruz plated a run with a single in the third inning and added to his haul with an RBI single in the fifth. He doubled off Gregory Infante in the seventh but was stranded at second base. Cruz has raised his average over 100 points from .160 to .268 over his last seven games. He’s amassed four doubles, a home run and four RBI during that stretch.

Justin Turner (wrist) has started taking dry swings, according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.

Turner fractured his wrist during a Cactus League game in March, and has yet to make his 2018 season debut. He'll almost assuredly need to go on a rehab assignment because of the amount of time he missed, but if there are no setbacks, he should be manning the hot corner for the Dodgers by the middle of May.

Felix Hernandez let up seven hits and three runs over six innings Wednesday in the Mariners’ win over the White Sox.

King Felix struck out six and walked two while throwing 63 of his 95 pitches for strikes. Hernandez got off to a sluggish start, allowing two runs in the first inning including a home run to the first batter he faced, Yoan Moncada. He gave up another run in the third but finished strong by putting up zeros over his final three frames. The former Cy Young winner sports a disappointing 4.96 ERA through six starts, though he’s pitched well aside from an eight-run implosion against the Giants on April 4. He’ll be at home for his next start Tuesday against Oakland.
Apr 25 - 6:11 PM

Carlos Correa reached base twice Wednesday in the Astros’ win over the Angels.

Correa walked in the fourth inning and later scored on a bases-clearing double by Alex Bregman. He followed that up in the sixth by ripping a double to right field off Halos right-hander Nick Tropeano. In doing so, he extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Correa’s .341 average through 88 at-bats ranks seventh in the American League.
