Carlos Beltran connected for a solo homer against the Rays on Friday.

After going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts on Thursday against the Blue Jays, Beltran bounced back with his team-leading 11th home run of the season. Seven of them have come this month. The 39-year-old is now one hit shy of 2,500 for his career.

Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Yankees.

His ninth-inning blast against Kirby Yates was the only offense of the night for the Rays. Pearce has taken advantage of regular playing time this month by slugging seven home runs. He’s now batting .297/.388/.550 overall. His one-year, $4.75 million deal looks like one of the winter’s best bargains.

Josh Donaldson blasted a pair of homers and drove in five runs on Friday, powering the Blue Jays to a 7-5 victory over the visiting Red Sox.

Donaldson got the scoring started in the first inning, swatting a solo homer off of Red Sox starter Joe Kelly. He gave them the lead again with an RBI double in the third inning and again in the fourth with an RBI single. After the Red Sox had tied the score at 5-5 in the top half of the eighth, Donaldson answered with an opposite-field two-run shot off of Koji Uehara to put the game away. He finished the night 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and five RBI and is now hitting .257/.353/.540 with 13 homers and 29 RBI on the season.
May 27 - 10:22 PM

Aaron Sanchez logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits over his 6 2/3 innings of work.

The right-hander punched out six on the night while walking two. Sanchez departed in line for his fifth victory of the season, but the Jays bullpen was unable to hold on for him. He has been impressive through his first 10 starts, compiling a 3.29 ERA (3.25 xFIP), 1.20 WHIP and 58/23 K/BB ratio over 65 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Wednesday when he'll take on the Yankees at home.
May 27 - 10:17 PM

Christian Vazquez went 1-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday night in Toronto.

Vazquez came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning which cut the Jays lead to 5-4. He has had a rough go of it at the plate this season, slashing a mere .223/.263/.330 with one homer and eight RBI.
May 27 - 10:10 PM

Joe Kelly racked up eight strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Friday, but also surrendered five runs on nine hits and three walks.

Kelly was brilliant in his first start back from the disabled list on Saturday, but was much more hittable this time out. Josh Donaldson and Justin Smoak each blasted solo home runs against him in the ballgame. Kelly will carry a frightening 6.30 ERA and 2.00 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Orioles in Baltimore.
May 27 - 10:07 PM

Erick Aybar is listed as day-to-day after leaving Friday's game against the Marlins with a foot contusion.

Aybar was pulled after getting hit on the foot by a pitch from Adam Conley in the fourth inning. He may sit out on Saturday as a precaution, but expect him to return to the field before the weekend is through.
May 27 - 10:01 PM

Matt Cain was forced to leave Friday's start against the Rockies in the second inning due to an apparent injury.

It's unclear at the moment exactly what happened, but Cain shook his head and looked toward the dugout after throwing a pitch in the second inning. Given his history of arm troubles, it could be something serious which would be a tough blow for the veteran right-hander and for the Giants after Cain had finally put together three straight quality starts. The Giants should have an update on his status shortly.
