Drew Pomeranz surrendered six earned runs over five innings Sunday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It was the worst start of the season for Pomeranz, who entered the outing with a 1.70 ERA and left it with his ERA at 2.48. He struck out nine, but the Diamondbacks smacked five hits against him and drew four walks. Pomeranz will try to get back on the right track next time out against the Rockies.

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Cain opened the contest with an RBI double off Chris Sale in the first inning. He wouldn't strike again until the eighth. Entering that frame, the Royals trailed by a score of 4-2. Cain cut the lead to one with a solo homer off Nate Jones. His squad would ultimately score three runs in the inning to take the lead. The 30-year-old outfielder has notched multiple hits in six of his last 10 games and is slashing .292/.343/.443 with seven homers, 28 RBI and six steals across 185 at-bats.
May 29 - 6:37 PM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

In his lone at-bat which did not result in a hit, Eaton drove in a run via a ground out. Through his first 198 at-bats this season, the 27-year-old outfielder owns a .288/.366/.409 triple-slash with seven doubles, four triples, three homers, 15 RBI and five steals. The power hasn't been there much to this point, but Eaton is chipping in nicely in terms of average and speed production.
May 29 - 6:30 PM

Edinson Volquez tossed a quality start in Sunday's no-decision against the White Sox, yielding three runs on seven hits over six innings.

Volquez struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. While the White Sox weren't teeing off on him by any stretch of the imagination, they managed to scrape out a run in the second inning and two more in the fifth. Volquez showcases erratic tendencies at times -- his 1.38 WHIP shows that well enough -- but holds a perfectly respectable 3.74 ERA through 67 1/3 innings. A road date with the Indians shows next on his schedule.
May 29 - 6:24 PM

Rich Hill was forced to leave Sunday's start against the Tigers after 6 1/3 innings due to an undisclosed injury.

The trainer came out to visit the left-hander with a man at first and one out in the seventh inning, and after a discussion the decision was made to remove Hill from the game. He had allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out nine before departing. Expect an update on his status from the A's after the conclusion of Sunday's game.
May 29 - 6:18 PM

Chris Sale was his typical ace-like self in earning a no-decision against the Royals on Sunday, striking out seven and allowing two runs over seven innings.

Sale got his hiccups (as they were) out of the way early, with both runs on his line scoring in the first inning via an RBI double by Lorenzo Cain and an RBI single by Eric Hosmer. And that was all she wrote. With the no-decision under his belt, Sale will carry a sterling 2.29 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 76/16 K/BB ratio (78 2/3 innings) into a road showdown with the Tigers next time he toes the rubber. He will be looking to pick up win No. 10 in that one.
May 29 - 6:16 PM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-2 with an RBI triple and three total RBI in Sunday's win over the Reds.

Lucroy drove in three of the five runs the Brewers scored in the game, picking up a sacrifice fly in the first inning, an RBI single in the third and an RBI triple in the seventh. The 29-year-old backstop has now been good for at least a pair of triples in each of his last five seasons. He is hitting a sharp .292/.353/.509 with eight homers and 26 RBI over 171 at-bats as the calendar readies to turn over to June.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

Bruce burned Jimmy Nelson for a long solo tater to right in the second inning. The bomb was his ninth of the season. Along with that homer tally, the 29-year-old outfielder is slashing .262/.317/.512 and has driven in 31 runs across 164 at-bats.
