Jordan Lyles gave up five runs in 4 2/3 innings in a no decision against the Dodgers on Saturday.

Lyles walked four and struck out four, and allowed two homers. He's now had back-to-back poor efforts on the mound, and in the process, his ERA has jumped all the way to 3.83 from 2.53 because of the struggles. Not exactly a surprise, but disappointing nonetheless. Lyles will try to right the ship on Thursday against the Marlins.

Christian Villanueva homered twice and drove in three runs in a 7-5 victory over the Dodgers on Saturday.

Villanueva's first blast came off of Alex Wood in the sixth inning with a runner on, and he added insurance with a solo shot off of Josh Fields. The surprising slugger now has 14 homers on the season, and while he's not hitting for average like he was at the beginning of the year, the power is still very much there. Villanueva now owns an .887 OPS over his 44 games this year. He's one of the best stories to begin the 2018 season.

Edwin Encarnacion went 3-for-3 with a two-run home run and three runs scored, and the Indians outlasted the Astros 8-6 on Saturday.

The two sides combined for six homers in the contest, and Encarnacion and his parrot got in on the action with a two-run shot in the fifth inning. He's now got 11 homers on the year, and the 35-year-old has begun to heat up in recent days, picking up five hits in his last seven at-bats. Fantasy owners have been waiting for his usual summer warm-up, and perhaps this is the beginning of a big stretch for Encarnacion.

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Reds on Saturday.

The RBI came on a triple, the second three-bagger of the season for the star outfielder. Unfortunately, Blackmon will probably remember tonight for grounding out with the bases loaded and nobody out. He's still hitting a very strong .274/.375/.525 on the year with 12 homers and 24 RBI in his 47 games.
May 27 - 12:25 AM

Tony Cruz went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer on Saturday in a victory over the Rockies.

Cruz's homer came with a runner on in the fourth inning, and it's the first homer of the season since he was called up on May 8. The backstop is on the roster for his defense, and his .154 average and on-base percentage are better examples of the lack of offensive value he provides than his line tonight.
May 27 - 12:22 AM

Jose Altuve had a huge game Saturday against the Indians, finishing 4-for-4 with a triple, a homer, two RBI, two stolen bases and three runs scored.

When we talk about five-category contributors we usually don't mean that they contribute all five categories in one game, but then again, Altuve isn't usual in many aspects. The homer was arguably the most surprising aspect of the line, as he's got just three homers in 53 games this year. The diminutive second baseman is hitting .321/.369/.447 with 26 RBI, 30 runs scored and six steals overall.
May 27 - 12:22 AM

Jared Hughes loaded the bases with no outs, but was able to escape with a save on Saturday against the Rockies.

Hughes gave up two hits to start the game, and then walked Carlos Gonzalez to load the bases to put the tying run on third and winning run on second. He was able to get Charlie Blackmon for the first out, and then got David Dahl to line into a game-ending double play. Hughes was more than a little fortunate on Saturday, but it continues his strong season, as the scoreless inning lowers his ERA to 1.19, and he's a perfect 3-for-3 in saves in the 2018 season.
May 27 - 12:19 AM

Cody Allen struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday against the Astros to earn his eighth save.

A game that saw 14 runs scored between the two teams, including six homers, threatened some hijinks in the ninth inning, but Allen had little trouble putting this one away. He's been largely good through 22 appearances, posting a 3.32 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 22/9 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 inning. Especially with Andrew Miller now back on the disabled list, Allen's job at the back of the Indians' bullpen is secure.
