Odubel Herrera went 1-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

Herrera was also caught stealing, not the first or the last victim of Yadier Molina in that regard. The 24-year-old has now hit safely in 22 of 27 games this year, running his overall line up to .311/.452/.411. He's second in the league with 24 walks, a new development this year, and it's helped him become one of the early breakout stars of 2016.

Adam Duvall belted a solo homer in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

Duvall burned his former team with a shot off of Jeff Samardzija in the fifth inning. That knotted things up at 1-1 at the time, but the Giants pushed a couple runs across in the eighth. Duvall is hitting just .225/.267/.451 on the season but has slugged three homers.

Michael Wacha limited the Phillies to one run over eight innings but took the loss on Tuesday.

A Ryan Howard solo home run in the sixth inning was all either team could muster in the contest. It was a tough result for Wacha, who allowed just five hits and three walks while striking out eight in the loss. He's pitched much better than his 2-2 record would indicate, owning a 2.65 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 32/12 K/BB ratio over 37 1/3 innings. He'll next face the division-rival Pirates on Sunday.
May 3 - 10:58 PM

Justin Nicolino wasn't great but was good enough to pick up a victory Tuesday, yielding four runs across six frames in a 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

Nicolino was hardly impressive in this one. He allowed seven hits -- including a two-run homer to Welington Castillo --- and walked three without recording a single strikeout. However, he's now 2-0 and holds a 2.70 ERA in his first two outings for the Marlins. It's come along with a 2/5 K/BB ratio over 13 1/3 innings. Nicolino gets the Phillies this weekend.
May 3 - 10:57 PM

Jeanmar Gomez pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Cardinals to earn his ninth save Tuesday.

All saves are not created equal, and Gomez earned his Tuesday by protecting a one-run lead against the top of the Cardinals' lineup. He got Matt Carpenter to strike out swinging before inducing ground ball outs from Stephen Piscotty and Matt Holliday to end the game. Gomez now owns a 1.69 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 12/3 K/BB ratio over 16 innings of work overall.
May 3 - 10:55 PM

A.J. Ramos converted his eighth save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Ramos nailed down the three-run victory with ease, getting a strikeout, popout and lineout while requiring just 10 pitches. The closer's control has been shaky with eight walks over 10 1/3 frames, but he's also struck out 14 and allowed just one run. Ramos is 8-for-8 in save opportunities.
May 3 - 10:52 PM

Patrick Corbin allowed three runs across 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

The Diamondbacks held a 4-1 lead before Corbin served up a two-run shot to Marcell Ozuna in the sixth inning and was knocked out of the game. The bullpen gave up four more runs the rest of the way. Corbin looked sharp in his first three starts but has scuffled of late with 14 runs allowed in his last three outings. He'll try for better results this weekend in Atlanta.

Howie Kendrick went 4-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored as the Dodgers doubled up the Rays 10-5 on Tuesday.

Kendrick had just four hits since April 15 before Tuesday's outburst. He swatted a two-run double in the fifth, his only extra-base hit of the evening and his first such hit all year. Those statistics indicate what kind of start to the season the 32-year-old has endured, batting just .197/.222/.213 even with the great game.
