Kyle Lohse was tagged for five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

Lohse held the Giants to just one run over the first five innings, but he was pulled with one out in the sixth after allowing four straight batters to reach. All four of them came around to score in a what turned out to be a seven-run inning for San Francisco. The veteran right-hander was showing signs of progress coming into Monday's start, but he owns a 5.80 ERA through 10 starts on the year. He'll get the Diamondbacks next week.

Nori Aoki had a huge day against the Brewers on Monday, going 4-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, a walk, two runs scored, and a stolen base.

Aoki filled up the box score against his former team, hitting a solo homer in the third inning -- his second home run of the season -- and an RBI single in the sixth along the way. He's done a nice job as San Francisco's leadoff man, batting .312 with a .391 on-base percentage over 44 games.
May 25 - 5:50 PM

Khris Davis went 3-for-3 with a pair of solo homers and three runs scored in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

Davis also drew a walk, so he reached base in all four of his plate appearances. His first home run of the day nearly got taken away, as it was ruled that he didn't touch home plate after the Giants appealed. However, the call was reversed after a replay review. This was his second career multi-homer game. Davis has been very inconsistent so far this season, resulting in a .245/.333/.424 over 42 games.
May 25 - 5:49 PM

Ryan Braun stayed hot Monday by launching a two-run homer and drawing a walk against the Giants.

His home run traveled at an estimated distance of 474 feet, making it the fourth-longest in the history of Miller Park. Braun struggled in the early going, but he's hitting .303 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI over his last 26 games. Fantasy owners who were patient or bought low are reaping the rewards.
May 25 - 5:47 PM

Brewers placed RHP Wily Peralta on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 23, with a strained left oblique.

Manager Craig Counsell expressed confidence on Saturday that Peralta would be able to make his next start, but now the club is saying the right-hander will be sidelined for at least four weeks. It's not clear at this point who will assume Peralta's spot in the rotation. David Goforth will be promoted prior to Tuesday's game to take his roster spot.
May 25 - 5:36 PM

Trevor Plouffe went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in Monday's 7-2 win over the Red Sox.

His three-run blast off Joe Kelly was the big blow in a six-run second inning for the Twins. Plouffe is off to an excellent start at the plate this season, batting .270/.353/.474 with seven home runs and 25 RBI through 41 games. The Twins are now eight games over .500 at 26-18.
May 25 - 5:31 PM

Ricky Nolasco improved to 5-0 after holding the Red Sox to two runs over 7 2/3 innings on Monday.

Nolasco now has 100 career wins. He ran into a bit of trouble in the third inning, but bounced back very nicely and even retired 15 batters in a row at one point. He fanned five and walked none in the victory. This was the first time he had completed six innings in a start this season. The veteran right-hander will carry a 5.12 ERA into a start against the Blue Jays this weekend.
May 25 - 5:31 PM

Joe Kelly was crushed for seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Twins.

Kelly came into Monday's outing with back-to-back solid starts, but this was anything but. After giving up a sacrifice fly in the first inning, he allowed six runs in the second before being chased from the game. The big blow was a three-run homer off the bat of Trevor Plouffe. He allowed nine of the 14 batters he faced to reach base and failed to record a strikeout. Kelly now owns an ugly 6.24 ERA through nine starts this season and his time in Boston's rotation could be nearing an end.
