Mitch Moreland had just one hit over four at-bats in Friday's 7-3 win at Oakland, but the hit was good for a grand slam.

Moreland's bases-clearing homer came off of Emilio Pagan in the sixth inning and it was the big blow to break a 3-3 tie. He is slashing .333/.400/.615, doing a good job in the middle of a powerful Red Sox lineup. Moreland is expected to remain a part-time player for now, but if he stays hot he could force his way into the lineup on a more frequent basis.

Drew Pomeranz (forearm) allowed three earned runs, five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision Friday in Oakland.

Pomeranz labored through his 88-pitch outing, throwing just 58 pitches for strikes and he uncorked a pair of wild pitches. It was his first start since coming off the 10-day disabled list due to a flexor strain suffered during spring training. A little rust was to be expected, especially on the road. He'll look for better results at home against the ice-cold Royals on Tuesday night.
Apr 21 - 2:27 AM

Corey Seager finished Friday's game 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, but he was able to reach base twice after getting hit by pitch.

The two HBP came courtesy of Max Scherzer, who was certainly not doing it intentionally. It was the first time a Dodger has been hit by two pitches in a game since Justin Turner on April 15, 2017. He'll look to get back on track in the hitting department on Saturday, but it won't be easy facing down against Stephen Strasburg.
Apr 21 - 2:21 AM

Clayton Kershaw allowed four earned runs, nine hits and no walks with four strikeouts over seven innings in Friday's loss against the Nationals.

Kershaw lost the rare battle between three-time Cy Young Award winners, as Max Scherzer was much more efficient. It was the first time a pair of three-time Cy Young winners hooked up since Greg Maddux against Roger Clemens back in 2006. Kershaw didn't lose his third decision until Sept. 7 last season. He'll next take the ball on Wednesday in Arizona opposite Zack Godley.

Jose Martinez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored to lead his team over the Reds 4-2 on Friday.

He cracked a double to center field to drive in Tommy Pham in the second inning. Martinez is following up last year's breakout with an even better performance so far in 2018. He has a .358 batting average with three home runs and 16 RBI in 19 games. At the start of the season it wasn't clear how much playing time he would get but there is no chance the Cardinals will put him on the bench now.
Apr 21 - 2:12 AM

Trea Turner finished 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 5-2 road win against the Dodgers.

Turner stumbled out of the chute this season, and he had just two multi-hit games through his first 16 games to hit .203 through April 15. He is finally showing signs of life, posting three multi-hit games over his past four contests to raise his average to .247. Even if he hasn't been hitting, he is still doing a good job of getting on base, posting 15 walks with eight stolen bases in 77 at-bats.
Apr 21 - 2:10 AM

Michael Wacha earned a win after holding the Reds to one run in 6 2/3 frames on Friday.

He allowed six hits -- all singles -- and issued one base-on-balls. He struck out three batters and moved to 3-1 on the season. The only run came on a Jose Peraza sacrifice fly that plated Billy Hamilton. Wacha has a 4.22 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through four starts.
Apr 21 - 2:08 AM

Sean Doolittle worked a perfect ninth inning on Friday against the Dodgers for his fourth save of the season.

Doolittle needed just 10 pitches to set down the Dodgers, throwing eight strikes. He has successfully converted each of his four save attempts this season. His only loss came during a non-save opportunity on April 15 against the Rockies. Doolittle works for a contender and he turns in a high rate of strikeouts, whiffing 19 batters over just 10 innings.
