Anthony Rendon belted his fifth round-tripper of 2018 Sunday in the Nationals’ win over the Marlins.

He got the scoring started by drilling a fourth-inning solo shot off Marlins starter Ellieser Hernandez. Rendon also doubled in the sixth and drew an intentional walk the following inning. The 27-year-old has been a mild disappointment coming off last year’s breakout season, but seems to be on the right track with five hits in his last 11 at-bats.

Brandon Kintzler nabbed his second save Sunday in Washington’s win over the Marlins.

Closer Sean Doolittle was given the afternoon after pitching on both Friday and Saturday. Kintzler made the most of his opportunity, allowing one hit in a scoreless ninth inning. The 33-year-old was an All-Star for Minnesota last year and should be first in line for saves if Doolittle ever gets hurt.
May 27 - 5:53 PM

Stephen Strasburg surrendered just three hits over five shutout innings Sunday in the Nationals’ win over the Marlins.

He notched eight punch-outs and two walks over 103 pitches. Strasburg got into a jam when he allowed a single and a hit-by-pitch in the second inning but escaped trouble by fanning J.T. Riddle and Lewis Brinson to end the frame. He also had a good day offensively, driving in Wilmer Difo with an RBI single in the fifth inning. Sunday’s gem lowered Strasburg’s season ERA to 3.13. The former first overall pick will make his next start Friday against Atlanta.

Aroldis Chapman converted his 11th save Sunday in New York’s win over the Angels.

The flame-throwing left-hander finished his outing with two strikeouts while throwing 17 of his 25 pitches for strikes. Chapman always makes things interesting in the ninth inning and Sunday was no different. He led off the frame by walking Shohei Ohtani, then allowed Ohtani to advance to third base on a pair of wild pitches. Despite a few hiccups here and there, Chapman carries a brilliant 1.27 ERA along with an equally remarkable 16.45 K/9. In the American League, only Edwin Diaz, Craig Kimbrel and Shane Greene have more saves than Chapman this year.
May 27 - 5:50 PM

Masahiro Tanaka limited the Angels to three hits and one run over six dominant innings Sunday in the Yankees’ 3-1 victory.

Not a bad day at the office for Tanaka, who finished with eight strikeouts and three walks over 104 pitches. The right-hander didn’t give up a run until Andrelton Simmons took him deep for a solo homer in the sixth. He faced Shohei Ohtani three times, recording two strikeouts and a walk. The Yankees cut Boston’s lead in the AL East to one with Sunday’s win. Tanaka will try for his seventh victory Friday night in Baltimore.
May 27 - 5:49 PM

Brett Gardner accounted for three of the Yankees’ five hits Sunday in a win over Los Angeles.

It wasn’t a big day for offense at Yankee Stadium but Gardner was responsible for most of it. Gardner singled three times, each off a different pitcher, but never got around to scoring. Sunday extended Gardner's hitting streak to seven games. He’s lifted his average from .225 to .246 during that span.
May 27 - 5:47 PM

Garrett Richards fell flat in Sunday’s loss to the Yankees, allowing three hits and three runs in just 2 1/3 innings.

The right-hander lasted just 70 pitches, finishing the day with five walks and three strikeouts. Richards blanked New York over his first two innings but came undone in the third, allowing a hit, three walks (including one with the bases loaded) and a hit-by-pitch before getting the hook from manager Mike Scioscia. Two of his three wild pitches came during his disastrous third inning. Richards, who celebrated his 29th birthday on Sunday, just didn’t have it today. He’ll take a 3.67 ERA into his next start, which will likely come Friday against Texas.
May 27 - 5:45 PM

Zack Cozart reached base three times Sunday in the Angels’ loss to the Yankees.

He led off the game with a single off Masahiro Tanaka, walked in the third, then drew another free pass in the eighth. Cozart isn’t performing at the All-Star level he played at last year in Cincinnati, but he’s shown signs of life with six hits and three walks over his last four outings.
