Jeremy Hellickson turned in a quality start in Saturday's win over the Brewers, allowing two runs over six innings.

Hellickson had the luxury of going against Kyle Lohse, who the Diamondbacks absolutely bombed for seven runs. He took advantage of his big lead and coasted through six innings, striking out three, walking one and even chipping in on offense with a pair of singles. After allowing isolated runs in the first and second innings, Hellickson kept the Brewers off the board during his remaining time on the mound. He'll take a 3-3 record, 5.08 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 39/18 K/BB ratio (over 56 2/3 innings) into his next outing, a home start against the Mets.
May 30 - 7:10 PM

Kyle Lohse was hit hard in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks, serving up 11 hits and seven runs over 3 1/3 innings.

The fourth inning would be Lohse's undoing, as Paul Goldschmidt cranked a three-run homer off the veteran to send him to the showers. Lohse has had a few poor starts this season and Saturday's ranks up there with the worst of them. He now holds an ugly 6.50 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 51/15 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings. While he's been striking out batters at a decent clip, there's little else to recommend in those numbers. The former Twin will head to Minneapolis to take on his old club in his next start.
May 30 - 7:09 PM

Chris Carter went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

The home run was Carter's eighth of the season. After a miserable April, Carter's hitting .207/.304/.402 in May (87 at-bats). If he can get his power stroke going, it will make stomaching that average a lot easier. He's hit eight homers and driven in 27 runs this season.
May 30 - 7:00 PM

Yunel Escobar was ejected from Saturday's game against the Reds for arguing a called strike three.

He was tossed in the seventh inning. Danny Espinosa took over for Escobar at third base with Dan Uggla moving to second base. Escobar went 2-for-4 with a double before his ejection.
May 30 - 6:59 PM

Adam Eaton went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

Eaton's mess of a season continues. He's now hitting .233/.292/.344 with just two homers and six RBI. He does have 26 runs scored. Be patient with him, as the talent's still there, but nobody will look down on you if you ride him on the pine until he shows some sign of breaking out of this horrific early season slump.
May 30 - 6:54 PM

Dallas Keuchel was flat-out dominant in Saturday's 3-0 win over the White Sox, striking out 11 in a complete game shutout.

Keuchel had everything working against the White Sox. Not only did he strike out 11, he did so without walking a batter. With the spectacular effort, he dropped his ERA to a stellar 1.76, to go with a 0.91 WHIP and 60/21 K/BB ratio over 81 2/3 innings. It's been a beautiful season to this point. The Orioles are up next on Keuchel's schedule.
May 30 - 6:50 PM

Angels recalled INF/OF Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro has demolished minor league pitching this season, hitting .370 across 108 Triple-A at-bats. The 29-year-old was called up to replace struggling relief pitcher Vinnie Pestano.
May 30 - 6:48 PM

Jose Quintana pitched a solid game against the Astros on Saturday, throwing 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball.

Quintana and Dallas Keuchel were locked in an old school pitcher's duel, with Quintana blinking first when Jonathan Villar hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old southpaw struck out seven and likely would have been able to pitch deeper if he hadn't walked four. Quintana now holds a 4.33 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. The numbers aren't particularly great, but he has gone at least six innings in six of his last seven starts, so the innings are there if nothing else. He'll take to the road against the Tigers in his next outing.
