J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run that gave the Red Sox a 5-4 win over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

With two on in the fifth inning, Jays starter Marco Estrada tried to elevate a fastball to Martinez, who was strong enough to muscle it over the right field wall for a three-run shot. It ended up being the difference in the game. Martinez now has five homers on the year, and his 18 RBI are good for seventh-best in the American League through Thursday's games. The 30-year-old is hitting .306/.351/.565 in the early days of his Red Sox tenure.

Chase Anderson was terrific in a tough luck loss against the Cubs on Thursday, allowing just one run on five hits across his seven innings of work.

Anderson struck out two and walked one. The only blemish on his night was a solo blast off the bat of Kyle Schwarber in the sixth inning, but that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Anderson, now 2-2 on the season, will carry an outstanding 2.86 ERA and 1.01 WHIP into Tuesday's matchup against the Reds in Cincinnati.

Devon Travis went 2-for-4 with a triple and a homer, his first of the year, in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

Sox ace Chris Sale made a rare mistake in the second inning and Travis didn't miss it, hitting it well into the seats in left field for his first dinger of the season. He ended up scoring two runs in the game, with his seventh-inning triple also registering as his first of the year. Nothing's come easy for the oft-injured second baseman this year -- as he continues to round into form from June knee surgery -- as he's hitting just .155/.222/.259 even after Thursday's good game. Fantasy players can find better middle infield options than Travis until he starts to show more, and show it more consistently, at the dish.

Craig Kimbrel struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Thursday against the Blue Jays, earning his seventh save of the year.

Kimbrel was tasked with protecting a one-run lead and did so, retiring Devon Travis, Kendrys Morales and Teoscar Hernandez to secure the victory. He's still a perfect 7-for-7 in save opportunities and owns a microscopic 0.87 ERA and 0.68 WHIP through 10 1/3 innings of work. The right-hander is behind only Edwin Diaz in the American League with his seven saves.
Apr 26 - 10:43 PM

Andrew Benintendi went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays.

Benintendi roped a shot down the right field line in the third inning, plating a run and sliding safely into second for a double. He also had a single in the game. The two-hit game broke an 0-for-14 slump coming into the game, a slide that has his line at .232/.354/.378 through 22 games. Despite the slow start, the 23-year-old is a great talent, and it should be reflected in his numbers sooner than later.

Marco Estrada struggled again Thursday, allowing five runs on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Red Sox.

Estrada's big mistake was a three-run, opposite-field home run by J.D. Martinez in the fifth inning, but eight hits and a walk over five innings is often a recipe for trouble. His ERA now sits at 6.00, with a 1.44 WHIP, through five starts. Homers have been an issue throughout, as he's allowed seven in those five outings after yielding 31 in 33 starts last season. His next chance to right the ship will come Tuesday against the Twins.
Apr 26 - 10:34 PM

Chris Sale allowed three runs over six innings in a win over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

It was a fine outing but un-Sale-like, as he served up two long balls -- to Devon Travis and Justin Smoak -- and struck out just four over his six innings. Still, Sale won't turn his nose up at a win, as Thursday's was just his second in six starts this year. The southpaw owns a 2.31 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 45/8 K/BB ratio through 35 innings of work, and a date with the flaccid Royals offense awaits Tuesday.
Apr 26 - 10:34 PM

Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with the go-ahead RBI double in the eighth inning to lead the Mariners past the Indians 5-4 on Thursday.

With the game knotted at 4-4, Seager hit a high fly ball to left-center that missed being a two-run homer by a few feet. He settled for the RBI double that gave the M's a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Through 24 games, Seager is hitting .247/.297/.419 with three homers, 13 RBI and eight runs scored.
