Lance Lynn was shelled for six earned runs in five innings Sunday in a loss to the Brewers.

On paper it looked to be an advantageous matchup for Lynn, who entered the start with a 1.56 ERA and 20/6 K/BB ratio in 17 1/3 innings and was facing a Brewers lineup sans Carlos Gomez, Jonathan Lucroy, Ryan Braun, and Aramis Ramirez. But the baseball gods aren't kind to optimism. Lynn was pounded for 10 hits, including four doubles, a triple, and a third-inning Adam Lind home run. He'll look to bounce back in his next start at home against the Pirates.

Mets prospect Steven Matz took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Saturday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

After the game Matz claimed he shook off catcher Dan Rohlfing only once in seven innings. He allowed two hits in the seventh but stranded the runners on first and third. The 23-year-old has been a difference maker for Las Vegas, recording a minuscule 2.01 ERA in 22 1/3 innings of work. MLB.com ranked Matz the third-best prospect in the Mets' system.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon was ejected from Sunday's game against the Twins.

McClendon was yapping at home plate umpire Sean Barber on his way back to the dugout from visiting his starting pitcher Roenis Elias, and must've said the magic words as Barber gave him the early gate.It's the first time that McClendon has been tossed this year.

Delmon Young drove in five of the 18 runs the Orioles scored in Sunday's 18-7 romp over the Red Sox.

Toss a dart at a name in the Oriole lineup from Sunday and you'll likely come up with a few RBI. Young led the crew with five, but he was far from alone, as Chris Davis, Steve Pearce and Jimmy Paredes each had three. Where to begin? We'll just roll through some of the highlights. Young had RBI singles in the third and fourth innings, then hit a two-run double in the seventh. He entered the game with just two RBI and left with seven. Davis supplied a two-run double in the third and a solo homer in the sixth. Paredes chipped in his first triple of the season. It was simply an offensive supernova. Guys like Young and Pearce aren't suddenly going to turn into RBI machines, but for one game, everybody in the middle of the Oriole lineup was locked in.

Rangers prospect Jerad Eickhoff pitched brilliantly Saturday in his debut for Triple-A Round Rock, coming within two outs of a no-hitter.

Eickfoff lost the no-hit bid in the ninth when Matt Long hit his one-out offering into the seats. The 24-year-old attributed the success to his improved curveball. The 11 strikeouts Eickhoff recorded tied a career-high. Texas picked Eickhoff in the 15th round of the 2011 draft.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced Sunday that Chase Whitley will make a spot start on Tuesday against the Rays.

That will give Masahiro Tanaka an extra day of rest with his start pushed back until Wednesday. Despite the strong matchup against the Rays, Whitley is not a recommend streaming option outside of AL-only formats.

Bud Norris picked up the win over the Red Sox on Sunday, hurling 6 2/3 innings of three-run ball while scattering seven hits.

Norris scooped up the win in the contest, moving to 1-3 on the year. It would have been quite the story had he lost, as the Orioles provided a whopping 18 runs of support in their hammering of Wade Miley and the Boston bullpen. With the luxury of a 7-0 lead after just three innings, Norris was able to coast. He struck out two and walked three, keeping the Red Sox off the scoreboard until the seventh inning, when Pablo Sandoval touched him up for a three-run homer. The pitcher needed this kind of start for job security reasons, as he had allowed 20 runs in just 10 1/3 innings and entered Sunday with a 17.42 ERA. He will have to continue to pitch well, but this was definitely a step in the right direction. He'll attempt to replicate Sunday's results when the Orioles play the Rays next weekend.

Diamondbacks prospect Zack Godley improved to 4-0 Saturday with a victory for High-A Visalia.

A reliever prior to this season, Godley has looked dominant in his first four starts, holding opponents to a .172 average in 91 plate appearances. The 25-year-old could climb the latter quickly if this keeps up. Godley's seven-inning outing Saturday against Stockton was the longest of his career.
