Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

Lindor took Royals starter Jason Vargas deep as the second batter the southpaw faced, his 11th homer of the season. He also attempted to start a rally in the ninth inning with a two-out double, but he was stranded on second base to end the game. Lindor quietly has a 12-game hitting streak going, leaving him with a .283/.346/.545 line, 11 homers, 24 RBI and 33 runs scored overall.

Alcides Escobar had a two-run double and scored a run in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

Escobar came to the dish with the bases loaded in a tie game in the sixth inning, and he proceeded to swat a two-RBI double to give the Royals a lead they wouldn't relinquish. It was his only hit in five at-bats. Hits have been hard to come by for the 30-year-old, who has just 32 of them in 182 at-bats this season. That translates to a forgettable .176/.205/.231 line and, more noteworthy, the accomplished base-stealer has yet to swipe a bag in 2017.

Kelvin Herrera struck out two in a scoreless inning of work Saturday, earning his 11th save against the Indians.

Herrera struck out Bradley Zimmer and then had to face the top of the Indians' order, allowing a two-out double to Francisco Lindor before getting Michael Brantley to ground out to end it. A mid-May slump appears to be in Herrera's rear-view mirror, as he's now struck out five over three scoreless appearances since that vulnerable stretch. Altogether, the 27-year-old has a 3.86 ERA and 22/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings of work.
May 27 - 8:47 PM

Danny Salazar had command issues in Saturday's loss to the Royals, walking five while allowing six hits and four runs -- three earned -- over 5 1/3 innings.

He's been able to largely keep his control in check this season -- relatively, at least, for a guy who rarely seems to know where it's going -- but his five walks give him 28 free passes in 52 1/3 innings this year. The loss dropped him to 3-5 with a 5.50 ERA and 1.59 WHIP through 10 starts. Despite his issues, a date with the A's on Thursday could still yield strong results for the 27-year-old.
May 27 - 8:43 PM

Jason Vargas allowed nine hits but just two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

Vargas allowed runs in the first and third innings and was seemingly en route to a short afternoon, but he managed to work out of multiple jams on his way to the win. The shine has worn off the southpaw, if only slightly, in recent starts, but he still sports a strong 2.39 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through 10 starts. The Indians will get their shot at revenge against the 34-year-old when the two sides meet again Friday.
May 27 - 8:38 PM

Chase Anderson was masterful Saturday, allowing a lone hit while striking out 11 Diamondbacks over seven innings in a 6-1 win.

Anderson was nearly flawless in this one, carrying a no-hitter into the eighth inning before a leadoff single ended his no-hit bid and his afternoon. Even without history, it was still a dominant performance from the 29-year-old, whose 11 strikeouts were a season high, while also walking three. The win improved him to 3-1 with a 3.72 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 10 starts. Anderson will try to replicate his success Thursday against the Mets.
May 27 - 8:31 PM

Stephen Strasburg mowed down the Padres in epic fashion on Saturday, racking up 15 strikeouts while firing seven shutout innings in a 3-0 victory.

He set a new career high in strikeouts. He struck out 14 in his first major league game back in 2010. This comes a day after Max Scherzer fanned 13 Padres in yesterday's game. Strasburg allowed just three base hits, all singles, and issued one free pass. He singled and scored the game's first run (and the only one he needed) in the third inning. His record improves to 6-1 with a 2.94 ERA through 10 starts. He has amassed 74 strikeouts against just 18 walks in 67 1/3 innings. He is now tied for seventh in the majors in strikeouts.
May 27 - 8:22 PM

Michael Taylor went 2-for-4 with a two-run jack in a win over the Padres on Saturday.

His blast off Padres' starter Clayton Richard broke open a 1-0 game and gave the Nationals some breathing room in the sixth inning. It was his second game in a row with a two-run homer. Taylor doesn't get to play every day but has hit well when given the chance. He is batting .274/.308/.460 with four homers and 13 RBI in 113 at-bats.
