Edinson Volquez allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Twins on Tuesday.

The start was reminiscent of most of Volquez' starts in recent weeks -- lots of baserunners, and lots of ground balls to help limit the damage. The win moved him to 5-4 on the year with a 3.67 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. Volquez will next face the White Sox on Sunday.

Nomar Mazara finished 3-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored as the Rangers topped the Angels 4-1 on Tuesday.

Mazara hit a two-run home run off Angels starter Jhoulys Chacin in the sixth inning, and he also singled and scored in the fourth. The homer was the third in six games for the outfielder, giving him seven on the season. The 21-year-old is hitting .317/.364/.483 in 38 games after starting the year at Triple-A.

Alex Guerrero (knee) notched his first hit at the Double-A level on Tuesday night.

Guerrero is now 1-for-24 since moving his rehab assignment from High-A Rancho Cucamonga to Double-A Tulsa. There's no rush from the Dodgers to fit him on the active major league roster, but it will have to happen by next Monday. He can't be optioned.

Sam Dyson struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday, closing out the Angels to earn his fifth save.

Dyson needed just 10 pitches to finish off the bottom portion of the Angels order. Despite not being a Proven Closer, he's taken to the closer role with little issue thus far, collecting three saves in three chances since Shawn Tolleson was removed from ninth-inning duties last week. Dyson owns a 2.05 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 17/6 K/BB ratio in 22 innings and shouldn't be a free agent in many fantasy leagues at this point.
May 24 - 11:57 PM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed three runs over six innings Tuesday in a loss to the Rangers.

Chacin didn't pitch poorly, aside from a two-run home run by Nomar Mazara, but his teammates provided him with just one run of support on the evening. The loss was his first in three starts since a trade to the Angels earlier this month. Between the Braves and Angels, Chacin is now 1-3 with a 5.11 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in eight starts. His task doesn't get any easier Monday against the Tigers.
May 24 - 11:51 PM

Ian Desmond went 3-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored against the Angels on Tuesday.

The dual threat now has nine steals and six home runs on the season. And after hitting .229/.312/.373 in April, Desmond is batting .340 with 12 multi-hit games this month. The strong stretch has his overall line up to a healthy .287/.342/.466 with 26 RBI and 33 runs scored, good for eighth-best in the American League.
May 24 - 11:48 PM

Francisco Liriano walked five batters but yielded just one run over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's 12-1 rout over the Diamondbacks.

Liriano was wild, which he is prone to being, but he also surrendered just two hits on the night to keep the D'Backs at bay. A few blowout outings have Liriano's ERA on the season at 4.30 and WHIP at 1.47, as he's struck out a batter per inning but also walked 30 across 52 1/3 frames. The southpaw will go up against the Rangers in Texas over the weekend.
May 24 - 11:46 PM

Martin Perez threw six scoreless innings in a win over the Angels on Tuesday.

Perez yielded five hits, all singles, and walked two in the outing. He also struck out six. The southpaw has been both lucky and good through 10 starts, posting a 3.13 ERA with a less impressive 1.33 WHIP -- inflated by 30 walks in 60 1/3 innings -- overall. Perez will try to piggyback off Tuesday's success when he takes on the Indians on Monday.
