Luke Gregerson worked a perfect ninth inning against the Twins on Tuesday to earn his sixth save.

Gregerson got a strikeout and two groundouts, needing 12 pitches to put away the Twins. He has yet to blow a save in six chances, owning a 1.64 ERA, 0.64 WHIP with eight strikeouts in 11 innings of work.

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run scored Tuesday against the Twins.

Gomez returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing three games with rib cage soreness, and he showed no ill effects in swatting the pair of doubles. It's not the kind of extra-base pop we'd like to see -- he's still without a homer in 2016 -- but it's a step in the right direction. He's been hitting a bit better of late and is batting .229/.256/.313 overall.

Danny Santana went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Leading off the game, Santana took Astros starter Collin McHugh deep to get the Twins on the board. It also got him on the board, as the homer was his first in 12 games this season. It was also his first since his breakout 2014 season. A hamstring injury sidelined him early, but the 25-year-old is batting .283/.298/.391 with the homer and four steals and may once again be a cheap source of speed if he continues to find his way into the lineup regularly.

Collin McHugh allowed four runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings but earned the win Tuesday against the Twins.

McHugh allowed two home runs in the fairly pedestrian start, but he was blessed with enough run support to win his third of the year. On the plus side, he did strike out six in the outing. There hasn't been a whole lot to like about the 28-year-old this year despite his 3-3 record, as it comes with a 6.59 ERA and 1.83 WHIP. The Astros aren't exactly flush with better options at the moment, though, so he'll take the hill again Sunday against the Mariners.

Chris Carter homered twice and had three RBI as the Brewers edged the Angels 5-4 on Tuesday.

Carter hit a two-run homer in the third inning and added a solo shot in the fifth. He's now got nine home runs, third-most in the National League, with 21 RBI and 17 runs scored. The power production comes as a shock to no one; the fact that he's hitting .287/.356/.713 while doing it is the real story. That won't last, but the power should, for what it's worth.

Rafael Ortega went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs scored against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Ortega contributed an RBI single in the third inning, later coming around to score on a Mike Trout single. A low-key signing by the Angels this past winter, the 24-year-old is now hitting .304/.360/.304 in 13 games. More importantly, he continues to bat second ahead of Trout, a great place to be for guys who like to score runs.
May 4 - 12:16 AM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

Lucroy hit a two-run homer off Angels starter Nick Tropeano in the fifth inning, his first dinger of the year. He's now put up three straight multi-hit games with a double, triple and a homer in that span. The backstop is hitting .321/.387/.440 in 23 games.
May 4 - 12:11 AM

Jeremy Jeffress worked a perfect ninth inning against the Angels to earn his seventh save Tuesday.

Jeffress took out the bottom of the Angels' lineup to preserve the one-run victory. The right-hander is a perfect seven-for-seven in save opportunities this year, owning a 3.09 ERA through 12 appearances.
