Brian McCann blasted a two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Astros to a 3-1 victory over the Indians on Sunday night.

His two-run shot off of Indians' starter Carlos Carrasco broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning. It was McCann's lone hit in three at-bats on the night and he's now hitting .248/.347/.396 with four homers and 14 RBI on the season.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 and swiped his third base of the season as the Astros defeated the Indians on Sunday night in Houston.

While Altuve hasn't been running wild on the bases like he had in previous seasons, he's still hitting a terrific .316/.367/.420 with two homers and 20 RBI. From a fantasy perspective though, owners are surely expecting more power and speed out of a player that they invested an early first-round selection in.

Ken Giles slammed the door on the Indians in the ninth inning on Sunday, recording the final two outs to earn his eighth save of the season.

Giles came on with a man at third and one out in the ninth, allowing the inherited runner to score before closing out the ballgame. He has now converted each of his first eight save chances on the season while compiling a 3.60 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 12/0 K/BB ratio in his 15 innings of work.
May 20 - 11:00 PM

Lance McCullers was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Indians, allowing just one hit and a pair of walks over seven shutout innings.

McCullers racked up eight strikeouts on the night. The right-hander retired the first 15 hitters that he faced until Jason Kipnis lined a single into right field to lead off the sixth inning. With the victory, McCullers improves to 6-2 on the season to go along with a 3.20 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 66/23 K/BB ratio across 59 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine effort on Saturday in a rematch against these same Indians in Cleveland.
May 20 - 11:00 PM

Melky Cabrera went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his Indians' debut on Sunday night.

To be fair, it wasn't all Cabrera, as the Indians totaled just three hits as a team in this one against Lance McCullers and company. It still remains unclear if Cabrera will settle in as the club's everyday right fielder or if he'll function in more of a platoon capacity, but he should be owned in all AL-only formats.
May 20 - 11:00 PM

Carlos Carrasco pitched well in a tough-luck loss against the Astros on Sunday night, surrendering three runs on eight hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Carrasco punched out six on the night and issued just one walk. He was involved in a scoreless pitcher's duel with Lance McCullers until Brian McCann launched a two-run homer in the seventh. He departed with a man on third and two outs in the eighth inning, and the inherited runner came around to score right after he departed. Carrasco now owns a 3.65 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 63/14 K/BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column in a rematch against Lance McCullers and the Astros on Saturday.

Mitch Haniger hit a two-run, game-tying homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Mariners bested the Tigers 3-2 in 11 innings Sunday.

Tigers starter Francisco Liriano blanked the M's for eight innings before handing it off to closer Shane Greene, who allowed a one-out single before Haniger stepped to the dish. Haniger proceeded to crush a hanging breaking ball from Greene, giving him 11 dongs and 36 RBI on the year. The 27-year-old is hitting .298/.379/.571 through 46 games this year.
May 20 - 10:12 PM

John Hicks hit a two-run home run, his fifth of the season, in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc left a breaking ball hanging in the first inning and Hicks lifted it out to left for a two-run shot. The dinger was his fifth in 26 games. A catcher by trade, Hicks has filled in and filled in admirably at first base for the Tigers in Miguel Cabrera's absence, batting .302/.352/.542 on the year.
