Lisalverto Bonilla gave up three runs in five innings during his start versus the Indians on Wednesday.

He was in line to take a loss until the Reds came back and won in the ninth inning. He gave up six hits and three walks while striking out two. Two of the runs he allowed came on a Carlos Santana bomb in the third inning. Bonilla has a 6.17 ERA in 23 1/3 innings. The Reds' rotation is wide open due to injuries and poor performances but Bonilla will need to make some improvements if he wants to stick around.

Mike Leake limited the Dodgers to one run over eight innings to win Wednesday.

Mike Leake brought his ERA back under 2.00 to 1.91 tonight. He's allowed just 47 hits and four homers in 61 1/3 innings. In his first year in St. Louis, he had similar strikeout and walk rates to what he does now, but he gave up 203 hits and 20 homers in 176 2/3 innings. Maybe he remains above average, but he's a definite sell-high candidate.

Cody Allen gave up two runs in the ninth inning to absorb a loss and a blown save against the Reds on Wednesday.

Asked to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning, he allowed singles to the first two batters of the inning. The Reds gave him a free out by bunting into a fielder's choice to retire the lead runner at third. Allen then got speedster Billy Hamilton to ground into a fielder's choice. But then Zack Cozart smoked a single to left that plated the tying and go-ahead runs. It was Allen's first blown save and second loss of the season. Allen's numbers are still excellent despite the poor game today. He has 13 saves with a 2.29 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings.

Rich Hill walked seven and allowed five runs in four-plus innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Just 40 of Hill's 82 pitches were strikes, which makes one wonder if his finger issues creeped back up. Manager Dave Roberts wasn't willing to comment about that immediately following the game. Most likely, we'll be hearing more about it tomorrow.
May 25 - 1:12 AM

Jedd Gyorko finished 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Gyorko's surprising 30-homer season last year came with just a .243 average. This year, though, he's at .331 over 136 at-bats. There's no way he keeps that up, but he probably will make another run at 30 homers now that he's a regular.
May 25 - 1:09 AM

Carlos Santana went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

He hit a two-run dinger off starter Lisalverto Bonilla in the third inning, then ripped an RBI double in the fifth. As usual for the veteran, Santana sports a low batting average but is solid in all the other measurements. He is slashing .230/.332/.410 with five homers, 25 runs scored and 26 RBI. The first baseman has started five games in the outfield to gain new positional eligibility in some fantasy leagues.
May 25 - 1:08 AM

Yadier Molina hit a two-run homer Wednesday against the Dodgers to extend his hitting streak to 13 games.

Most hitting streaks like this come with averages in the .350-.400 range, but Molina is hitting just .263 during his; he's collected exactly one hit in 11 of the 13 games and, since he hasn't drawn a walk in any of them, he's always getting four or five at-bats. At least he does have three homers during the streak; he had just one in his first 25 games.
May 25 - 1:06 AM

Trevor Bauer took a no-decision after allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings against the Reds on Wednesday.

He left the game with a lead but the bullpen blew it in the ninth inning. The two runs Bauer allowed came on a two-run blast by Adam Duvall. He gave up four hits and two walks while punching out six. This was one of Bauer's best outings of the season and lowers his ERA to 6.30 through nine starts. His nice 59/18 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 50 innings indicates better things could be in store as the season unfolds.
