Drew Pomeranz struggled against the Astros on Sunday, surrendering five runs (three earned) on six hits over five innings.

Pomeranz struck out four and walked three in the outing. The Astros tagged him for three runs in the third and two in the fourth. The runs in the third came on a pair of RBI singles, while Jake Marisknick's two-run homer supplied the damage in the fourth. Pomeranz's current 4.50 ERA is more or less indicative of what you can expect from the pitcher. He will pitch effectively at times, but shouldn't be seen as much more than a league-average starter. The 26-year-old southpaw will take to the road against the Rangers in his next start.

Neil Walker went 3-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs on Sunday, leading the Pirates offensive attack in an 8-0 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Walker's two-run double off Jeremy Hellickson in the fifth inning plated a pair of runs and gave the Pirates a 4-0 lead. He also drew a walk and scored a run on the afternoon. Serving primarily as the team's cleanup hitter this season, Walker is off to a strong start hitting .300/.333/.457 with nine RBI in the early going.
Apr 26 - 7:39 PM

Adam Wojciechowki allowed five runs in four innings during Sunday's win over the A's.

Wojciechowski did not factor into the decision. He surrendered two runs in the second inning and three more in the fourth while striking out four and walking two. This was the right-hander's second start since being recalled from Triple-A to replace an injured Brad Peacock (hip). In those two starts, he's allowed nine runs in eight innings. He'll get the Mariners at home in his next outing.
Apr 26 - 7:38 PM

Francisco Liriano delivered a strong performance in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks, whiffing six over 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

In typical Liriano fashion, the hard-throwing southpaw allowed just two hits but issued six walks, giving the Diamondbacks ample scoring chances. He was able to make big pitches in key situations though and came through the outing unscathed. He now sports a 2.22 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 30/12 K/BB ratio across 24 1/3 frames on the season. He'll look to replicate this effort when he does battle against the Cardinals in St. Louis on Saturday.
Apr 26 - 7:36 PM

Aaron Hill's rough start to the 2015 season continued on Sunday as he went hitless in a losing effort against the Pirates.

He finished the afternoon 0-for-2 and left two men stranded. If the Diamondbacks are hoping to build his trade value and then flip him elsewhere, his atrocious .156/.208/.200 slash certainly isn't helping their cause.
Apr 26 - 7:35 PM

Jeremy Hellickson struggled in a losing effort against the Pirates on Sunday, surrendering four runs on seven hits in his 4 1/3 innings of work.

Hellickson did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the afternoon while issuing a pair of free passes. The Pirates struck for two in the first on a two-run single by Pedro Alvarez and added a pair on the fifth on a Neil Walker double. Hellickson has had a rough time in the D'Backs rotation thus far, registering a 5.24 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 16/8 K/BB ratio over his 22 1/3 innings. He'll look to turn things around on Saturday when he takes on the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
Apr 26 - 7:33 PM

Matt Kemp hit a double and stole a base in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Kemp finished the game 1-for-3 with a run scored, a stolen base and a double. The steal was his fourth of the season and a good sign for his legs, as he's clearly feeling decent enough to run. He finished the series against his former team with five hits in 11 at-bats, plus two steals and three runs scored, plus one ejection for arguing the home plate umpire. Productive series for Kemp, who's hitting .350 with 14 RBI and 16 runs scored in April.
Apr 26 - 7:10 PM

Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth inning against the Dodgers on Sunday, striking out two and locking down his sixth save of the year.

Kimbrel had allowed runs in each of his last two appearances, but there were no dramatics on Sunday. He entered the ninth inning with his team up 3-1 and went right at the Dodgers, fanning the first two hitters before getting Yasmani Grandal to foul out to end the game. Of Kimbrel's 13 pitches, 10 went for strikes. He's now 6-for-6 in save chances and holds a 2.16 ERA and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings. As long he's healthy, any little bumps in the road are just that.
