Chad Bettis lasted just 3 2/3 frames Monday, getting charged with six runs in a loss to the Reds.

The Rockies spotted Bettis with a 5-1 lead after the third inning, but like many early leads at Coors Field, it eventually died. Bettis entered May with a 3.77 ERA, but he'll close it with a 5.46 mark, having allowed 13 runs over his last two outings. He'll attempt to get back on track this weekend in San Diego.
May 30 - 8:03 PM

Adam Duvall had his first career two-homer day in Monday's win over the Rockies.

There were seven home runs hit on the day, which is no surprise in a matchup of two mediocre starters at Coors Field. Both of Duvall's longballs went to the opposite field, as he took Chad Bettis deep with a two-run shot in the fourth and then added a solo blast off of Jake McGee in the ninth. Duvall has now homered 11 times this month and 13 times on the season, emerging as a legitimate power bat for the Reds.
May 30 - 8:00 PM

Joey Votto smashed career home run No. 200 in Monday's slugfest victory over the Rockies.

Votto took Jason Motte deep in the seventh inning with a shot to right field. He also nearly had a grand slam in previous at-bat, as a drive in the fourth inning landed on the warning track and then bounced over the fence for a two-RBI, ground-rule double. Votto's production has been way down this season, as he's sporting a .213/.332/.391 batting line. However, he's hit safely in five out of his last six contests and has a couple dingers over that stretch.
May 30 - 7:57 PM

Carlos Gonzalez doubled and smacked a two-run homer in Monday's loss to the Reds.

Both hits were to center field and they were both lasers, with the longball coming in the ninth inning off of Reds closer Tony Cingrani. Gonzalez also walked twice on the day. He has been inconsistent this season, sandwiching a couple homer binges around the longest homerless drought of his career. The good news is CarGo is in the midst of one of the good streaks, as he's gone deep in three straight and four out of his last five.
May 30 - 7:48 PM

Nate Karns struck out six while allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings in Monday's 9-3 win over the Padres.

Karns has pitched well overall this season but has had trouble going deep into games, as he's failed to go six frames in half of his starts. That wasn't the case here, though, as he also encouragingly only walked one batter. The 28-year-old sports finishes his first two months with a 3.43 ERA, a strikeout per inning and a 5-1 record. He'll try to keep it going this weekend in Texas.
May 30 - 7:43 PM

Andrew Cashner was charged with four runs -- three earned -- across 6 1/3 frames in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

Cashner was cruising along through five innings, but the M's got to him with three hits and four runs in the sixth, which included a two-run homer by Kyle Seager that put Seattle up for good. The hard-throwing righty allowed exactly three earned runs in each of his four starts in May, and he sports a disappointing 32/19 K/BB over 47 frames on the year. Cashner gets the Rockies at home this weekend.
May 30 - 7:32 PM

Astros optioned 3B Colin Moran to Triple-A Fresno.

Moran batted just .105 (2-for-19) with two RBI and a 6/1 K/BB ratio during his first stint in the majors. Carlos Gomez is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday and will take his place on the active roster.
May 30 - 7:24 PM

Kyle Seager smacked a two-run homer and scored a couple runs in Monday's win over the Padres.

Seager's shot off of Andrew Cashner in the sixth inning put the Mariners ahead for good. He also drew a pair of walks, reaching base three times in four trips to the plate. Although this was his first home run in a couple weeks, Seager has batted .343/.393/.569 this month.
