Madison Bumgarner pitched well at Coors Field on Saturday, limiting the Rockies to one run over six innings, but didn't factor in the decision.

Bumgarner left with a 4-1 lead, but his bullpen subsequently gave up four runs in the bottom of the seventh. Preserving that lead included a high-wire act in the sixth inning, when the Rockies loaded the bases with no outs, but Bum struck out Ryan Raburn and got a double play from Cristhian Adames to end the threat. The southpaw struck out six while walking two and allowing five hits on the afternoon. Bumgarner owns a 2.12 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 83/22 K/BB ahead of a start against the Braves on Thursday.

Carlos Santana went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in an 11-4 drubbing of the Orioles on Saturday.

Batting atop the Indians order, Santana played the part of leadoff hitter, collecting a couple hits and stealing his third base of the season. Without much fanfare, he's now reached base safely in 10 straight games. The 30-year-old is hitting .231/.345/.438 with eight homers, 24 RBI and 24 runs scored on the year.
May 28 - 8:23 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up six runs for the third straight start -- although just three were earned -- in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

A fielding error in the first inning made three of the Indians' four runs unearned, but it's not as though Jimenez was much better. The right-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and walking three before exiting. He's now 2-6 with a 6.36 ERA for a team with aspirations of winning the AL East. It's hard to imagine they'll continue running him out there much longer when he's pitching like this, but his next scheduled start, until further notice, is set for Thursday against the Red Sox.

Noah Syndergaard was ejected from Saturday night's game against the Dodgers for throwing in the general direction of Chase Utley in the third inning.

Syndergaard appeared to try and hit Utley with a pitch, but missed. He was immediately ejected and manager Terry Collins was subsequently ejected for arguing. It's assumed that Syndergaard was responding to Utley's take-out slide on Ruben Tejada last October. The right-hander had only allowed two hits in 2 1/3 scoreless innings prior to his getting sent off.
May 28 - 8:05 PM

Danny Salazar allowed two runs over six innings in a win over the Orioles on Saturday.

Salazar gave up six hits and walked two to earn his fifth win of the year. He continues to be one of the best pitchers in the American League, posting a 2.39 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 72/28 K/BB ratio over 60 1/3 innings of work. He's presently second in the league in strikeouts and fourth in ERA among qualified starters. Salazar will next take on the Royals on Thursday.

Jhonny Peralta will miss 3-4 days of his rehab assignment in Double-A Springfield with a cut finger that required stitches.

It's not a long-term issue, but it does move his expected return date back a few days. Not that the Cardinals will mind, of course, with Aledmys Diaz raking at the plate. Peralta was 3-for-15 (.200) in his rehab assignment prior to the injury.

Evan Longoria went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI as the Rays beat the Yankees 9-5 on Saturday.

Longoria connected on a Michael Pineda pitch for a two-run shot in the second inning. The homer was his ninth of the season, giving him 24 RBI and 26 runs scored. The 30-year-old is slashing .254/.302/.466 overall.
May 28 - 7:48 PM

Michael Pineda's rough 2016 season continued Saturday, allowing six runs over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rays.

Pineda gave up nine hits, including a two-run home run to Evan Longoria, while striking out just three. The loss was his sixth in 10 starts this year, and Pineda now owns a 6.92 ERA and 1.65 WHIP. He's just giving up too much contact, and they're hitting it too hard. He'll keep searching for a former dominance Thursday against the Tigers.
