Hunter Pence (hamstring) delivered a walk-off pop-up RBI double in Monday's win over the Padres.

It was a ball that should have been caught, but the Giants will take it. Pence has missed three straight starts with a mild right hamstring strain and didn't feel comfortable taking swings in batting practice Monday, but he's not far off.

Jhonny Peralta (thumb) went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored Monday in his third minor league rehab game with Class A Peoria.

Peralta, who is working his way back from thumb surgery, also played six innings at shortstop. He has seen time between shortstop and third base during his minor league rehab assignment, as the Cardinals are preparing to mix and match in their infield when he returns from the disabled list. He appears on track to be activated in early June.

Clint Barmes told Jessica Kleinschmidt of FanDuel that he has decided to retire from baseball.

Barmes made the decision in the middle of a recent game with Triple-A Omaha and was given his release by the Royals on Monday. "Coming back I think I decided I would give Triple-A a little time to help make my decision easier for me as far as having no regrets when I do make that decision," said Barmes. "At this point I can honestly say I can look back and know I don’t have any regrets." Barmes produced a .245/.294/.379 career batting line over 13 seasons to go along with 89 homers and 415 RBI.

Johnny Cueto pitched a two-hit shutout Monday against the Padres to improve to 7-1 on the season.

There's no telling whether his elbow will hold up for the long haul, but Cueto is an elite hurler again following that rough spell in Kansas City. Evading the home run ball has always been his strongest suit, and now that he's in a pitcher's park, rather than hitter friendly Cincinnati, he's doing better than ever, serving up just two long balls in 75 2/3 innings to date this year.
May 24 - 1:27 AM

Drew Pomeranz blanked the Giants for seven innings in a no-decision Monday.

Pomeranz deserves much better than a 4-4 record for his performance so far. He's sporting a 1.70 ERA in nine starts, with 60 strikeouts in 53 innings. That's pretty good for a guy who was acquired for two players the Padres were thinking of non-tendering and who very nearly didn't make the rotation out of spring training.
May 24 - 1:23 AM

Wil Myers went 0-for-3 in Monday's loss and is hitting .218 with a 17/1 K/BB ratio in 87 at-bats this month.

Myers had a great April, but nothing has gone right for him this month and he'll probably hit lower in the Padres order until he gets it turned around. He still has some mixed-league value, but he's very benchable right now.

Rich Hill scattered eight hits over eight innings as the A's topped the Mariners 5-0 on Monday.

Ryan Madson finished the shutout. Despite all of those curveballs, Hill didn't walk anyone tonight, and every hit he gave up was a single. He's now 7-3 with a 2.18 ERA, and he's really the only thing keeping the A's afloat.

Taijuan Walker was charged with five runs -- one earned -- in 7 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the A's.

It'd probably be for the best if unearned runs were simply abolished from our precious statistics, but then every once in a while, you get a situation in which a pitcher is charged with a bunch of runs that he had very little hand in. That was the case with Walker tonight. It took two Chris Taylor errors to open the door for a four-run eighth inning, and with runners on second and third with one out, manager Scott Servais had Walker intentionally walk the light-hitting Billy Burns before pulling him. All three baserunners later came around to score against the pen. Walker deserved much better, but at least the festivities didn't hurt his ERA.
