Jim Johnson earned the win Tuesday night against the Angels by tossing two scoreless innings of relief in the 11-inning, 10-9 win.

Owners that have held onto Johnson should consider this evening an unmitigated success. To make it possible, Mike Trout had to crush a two-run homer off Sean Doolittle in the ninth to force extras. Once there, Johnson tossed a scoreless 10th and 11th, striking out one, walking one, and giving up a single. He's tossed five straight scoreless innings, earning the victory on consecutive nights, and has to be nearing the ninth inning discussion again.

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a walk, two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored in a win over the Angels on Tuesday night.

Lowrie had collected only two hits over his last six starts, sandwiched around Sunday's maintenance day off, so it was nice to see him put a charge into the ball a few times. Despite the lack of hits, he's still been doing damage by drawing 14 walks, good for second in the AL. He's never been a great contact hitter, but that .244 average will rise a bit as pitchers realize that Lowrie is perfectly content to allow them to beat themselves.

Mike Trout blasted a two-run, game-tying homer off Sean Doolittle in the ninth inning against the A's to send the game into extra innings on Tuesday.

Los Angeles eventually lost 10-9 in 11 innings. It wasn't Trout's fault, as he finished 3-for-6 with three RBI and two runs scored. Despite having lost Josh Hamilton, the Angels currently lead the majors in home runs. This was Trout's fifth bomb of the year, and he's now slashing .317/.369/.650.

Dan Straily was blasted for six runs on seven hits and a walk over 3 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

He whiffed three and coughed up a two-run fourth inning homer to Kole Calhoun. Straily (1-2, 5.40 ERA) was coming off back-to-back quality outings to begin the campaign, so one off night can be forgiven. Something to keep an eye on, however: Despite pitching in three pitcher's parks (and against a manageable slate in the Mariners, Twins and Angels), he's given up at least one homer in each start and four total. That better change quickly with the Rangers coming to town on Monday.

Garrett Richards allowed five runs on eight hits over seven innings against the A's in a no-decision Tuesday.

Richards ran into trouble during a three-run third in which he may have been lucky to escape without further damage, and then sailed until he gave up a couple cheapies in his last frame of work on a walk, two singles and a wild pitch. Richards, now 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA and 1.16 WHIP, will get to wield a bat in his next appearance as the Angels square off in Washington against the Nationals on Monday.
Apr 16 - 2:24 AM

Kole Calhoun left Tuesday's game against the A's in the 11th inning after rolling his ankle.

Calhoun grounded out to second and caught his foot in the dirt when he tried to stop his momentum after crossing first base. In clear agony, but never hitting the ground, Calhoun didn't put any weight on his ankle as he was helped off the field. We should know more about his status on Wednesday. Hopefully he doesn't require a DL stint, because Calhoun has collected three straight multi-hit games and blasted a homer tonight while finishing 3-for-6.

LaTroy Hawkins earned his third save of the season Tuesday in the Rockies' 3-2 win over the Padres.

So far, so good for Colorado's 41-year-old offseason import. Since allowing a run in his Rockies' debut, Hawkins has strung together four consecutive scoreless appearances. He's 3-for-3 in save conversions to go with a 1.93 ERA and 0.86 WHIP. He's outpitching Rex Brothers right now.
Apr 16 - 1:47 AM

One night after suffering an elbow contusion, Michael Cuddyer went 1-for-4 with a steal and a run scored in Tuesday's 3-2 win against the Padres.

With Justin Morneau getting the night off, Cuddyer was free to man first base, a slice of the defensive spectrum that his stomach can handle at this point. He was fortunate to escape Monday's warning track fiasco after slamming into the fence with all his weight falling backwards after getting crossed up on Alexi Amarista's triple. In the batter's box, on the other hand, Cuddyer still looks very much at home, slashing .340/.400/.585 in the early going.
