Jose Martinez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored to lead his team over the Reds 4-2 on Friday.

He cracked a double to center field to drive in Tommy Pham in the second inning. Martinez is following up last year's breakout with an even better performance so far in 2018. He has a .358 batting average with three home runs and 16 RBI in 19 games. At the start of the season it wasn't clear how much playing time he would get but there is no way the Cardinals can put him on the bench now.

Trea Turner finished 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 5-2 road win against the Dodgers.

Turner stumbled out of the chute this season, and he had just two multi-hit games through his first 16 games to hit .203 through April 15. He is finally showing signs of life, posting three multi-hit games over his past four contests to raise his average to .247. Even if he hasn't been hitting, he is still doing a good job of getting on base, posting 15 walks with eight stolen bases in 77 at-bats.

Michael Wacha earned a win after holding the Reds to one run in 6 2/3 frames on Friday.

He allowed six hits -- all singles -- and issued one base-on-balls. He struck out three batters and moved to 3-1 on the season. The only run came on a Jose Peraza sacrifice fly that plated Billy Hamilton. Wacha has a 4.22 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through four starts.
Apr 21 - 2:08 AM

Sean Doolittle worked a perfect ninth inning on Friday against the Dodgers for his fourth save of the season.

Doolittle needed just 10 pitches to set down the Dodgers, throwing eight strikes. He has successfully converted each of his four save attempts this season. His only loss came during a non-save opportunity on April 15 against the Rockies. Doolittle works for a contender and he turns in a high rate of strikeouts, whiffing 19 batters over just 10 innings.
Apr 21 - 2:05 AM

Bud Norris allowed a run in the ninth inning but still got the save against the Reds on Friday.

He surrendered a walk and two base hits but luckily for him he had a three-run lead to work with. Norris unexpectedly seized the closer's job in St. Louis and has performed well enough to keep it for awhile, especially considering newcomer Greg Holland's struggles thus far. Norris has five saves and a 2.61 ERA.
Apr 21 - 2:04 AM

Max Scherzer allowed one earned run with four hits and three walks while striking out nine batters in six innings in a win against the Dodgers on Friday.

Scherzer outdueled Clayton Kershaw in a head-to-head battle between a pair of three-time Cy Young Award winners. He has struck out at least seven batters in each of his five outings this season, including four quality starts. He'll look to win his fourth consecutive start on Tuesday against the Pirates at Nationals Park.
Apr 21 - 2:02 AM

Jesse Winker singled twice in four chances against the Cardinals on Friday.

The young outfielder has been serving as the Reds leadoff batter and is doing a good job of setting the table -- he has a .414 on-base percentage. He displayed some power last year, swatting seven homers in 47 games but that has not been the case so far this year. He has just one extra-base hit (a double) on the season. Now that Scott Schebler is back from the disabled list Winker may see his playing time drop a little.
Apr 21 - 2:00 AM

Alex Blandino went 2-for-4 and drove in a run during Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

He singled to score Scooter Gennett as the Reds tried to rally in the final frame. The rookie Blandino was riding the bench most days under former manager Bryan Price, but he will now most likely be the starter at third base until Eugenio Suarez returns from his fractured thumb.
