Eric Chavez had an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.
Getting a rare start, Chavez brought in the Diamondbacks' only run of the game with the double. The team mustered just three hits in the loss. The 36-year-old is hitting .217/.250/.522 with three RBI in a part-time role this season.
Carl Crawford hit an RBI triple in the sixth inning of Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.
It was Crawford's first triple of the year and his only hit of the game. It brought in the game's first run, and Crawford later scored on Yasiel Puig's three-run homer. He's hitting just .236 through the early portion of the season.
Kenley Jansen earned his league-leading seventh save of the season in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.
Jansen did it in style, striking out the side to close out the 4-1 win. The right-hander has blown two saves as well, but he's got a 21/5 K/BB ratio over 11 innings this year and should again be among the league leaders in saves this season.
Josh Collmenter allowed four runs, all in the sixth innings, over six innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.
Collmenter threw five shutout innings before the four-run sixth marred the outing. It was two big hits in that inning -- a Carl Crawford triple and three-run homer by Yasiel Puig -- that did Collmenter in, and he finished with five hits and two walks allowed on the day. He should get better as he builds stamina. That process will continue Friday against the Phillies.
Josh Beckett allowed one hit over five scoreless innings but took a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.
Beckett struck out seven hitters, walking two while allowing just one single on the afternoon. After a poor start against the Tigers his first time out, Beckett has now allowed three hits, a 1.00 WHIP and 11 strikeouts over 10 shutout innings in his last two starts. Beckett will continue to search for his first win since September 30, 2012, when he faces the Rockies on Friday.
Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Athletics' 4-1 win over the Astros on Sunday.
Donaldson hit a two-run blast, his fourth home run of the season, in the first inning. He followed with two doubles in his next three at-bats, including an RBI double in the ninth inning. The 28-year-old scuffled to start the year, but he's proving that his breakout 2013 season was no fluke with his recent hitting.
Marwin Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a home run in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.
Gonzalez' solo shot off A's starter Jesse Chavez was the Astros' only run on the day. The infielder, getting a spot start at third base in place of Matt Dominguez, finished with two of the Astros' five hits. The 25-year-old earned a bench spot with a strong spring and is hitting .313 in part-time duty to start the season.
Luke Gregerson earned his third save of the season in Sunday's win over the Astros.
Gregerson threw a scoreless ninth inning, striking out one, for the save. He's got a 1.69 ERA and 0.75 WHIP through 10 2/3 innings and although A's manager Bob Melvin has committed to a closer-by-committee, Gregerson has the kind of stuff to be an effective closer. For now, though, he simply remains a player to watch until the situation in Oakland becomes clearer.
