Rhys Hoskins hit his third home run of the season in a win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Hoskins hit a laser shot down the left field line that landed a few feet fair and cleared the wall by a few feet as well, but they all look the same in the box score. The homer was the third of the year for the 25-year-old, who now has 14 homers, 13 runs scored and three steals in the early weeks of his sophomore campaign. It's certainly shaping up to be another promising one after a great debut, as Hoskins is hitting .327/.486/.618 in 18 games played.

Odubel Herrera went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Herrera swatted a pair of RBI singles in the affair, one in a five-run second inning and another in the fifth. He's now got hits in each of his last four games and in eight of his last nine, raising his overall line to .333/.380/.455. Herrera has one homer, seven RBI, 10 runs scored and a stolen base in 17 games to date.

Jameson Taillon allowed five runs, lasting just 1 2/3 innings, in Thursday's loss to the Phillies.

Taillon got through the first inning without issue before the wheels completely fell off in the second. A Rhys Hoskins solo homer started the ordeal, and Taillon went on to walk two, hit a batter and allow three hits before exiting. The silver lining is that all of the damage came on singles, and the walks and HBP were self-inflicted, so the outcome could have easily been drastically different with a few different bounces. Even with the dud, it's been a good start to the year for the 26-year-old, who'll carry a 2.86 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 21/7 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's interleague start against the Tigers.

Cesar Hernandez went 2-for-4 with three RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

Hernandez dealt a big blow to the Bucs when, with the bases loaded and two out and with a 3-2 count he knocked a single that plated all three baserunners. Hernandez also stole his fifth base of the season in the win. There was some concern the 27-year-old might be the odd man out after Scott Kingery went north with the team, but Hernandez has asserted his place in and atop the lineup, hitting .286/.430/.413 through 18 games.

Chris Owings left Thursday's game against the Giants after injuring his head in an outfield collision.

Owings left in the third inning after getting kneed in the face by teammate A.J. Pollock. Not only did Owings hold on for the catch, but he somehow had the presence of mind to throw the ball in despite being in obvious pain. Owings walked off on his own power but will surely be put through the concussion protocol. He went 0-for-1 in his lone at-bat before exiting. Jarrod Dyson will finish out the game in right field for the D'Backs.

Aaron Judge set a record with his home run in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays, becoming the fastest to 61 career home runs, in terms of games played, in baseball history.

Judge caught a hanging breaking ball from Jays reliever Tyler Clippard and hooked it into the left field seats in the seventh inning for the solo shot. It was his 61st homer in 199 career games, besting Mark McGwire's record of 204 that had stood since 1988. No stranger to records or success, the 25-year-old is having another stellar start to a season this year, batting .339/.481/.629 with five homers, 12 RBI and 16 runs scored through 17 games.

Luke Maile went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Maile continued his unlikely assault on American League pitching, picking up two hits for his fourth consecutive game. Maile has hit in all seven of his appearances this year, slashing a cool .480/.552/.640 in 25 at-bats. Will the 27-year-old with a career .203/.235/.315 line continue posting a 1.192 OPS? Probably not. But it's been a first few weeks to remember for the backup catcher.
Apr 19 - 9:54 PM

Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth inning against the Blue Jays Thursday, earning his third save of the season.

Chapman didn't waste much time or effort, blowing away Devon Travis, Steve Pearce and Teoscar Hernandez in just 12 pitches. He's now got 17 strikeouts in eight innings of work, posting a 0.75 WHIP and 2.25 ERA in that span. He's also a perfect 3-for-3 in save chances on the young season.
