Yordano Ventura allowed four runs on six hits over four innings Sunday, taking the loss against the Twins.

After allowing two runs without recording an out, Ventura seemed to find his legs in getting through the next two innings without harm. An eventful fourth inning included a throwing error and a wild pitch leading to a run, and another run in the fifth inning led Royals manager Ned Yost to decide he'd seen enough. Walks were an issue, as he handed out four free passes, but he also struck out six. Ventura will look to exhibit more control Friday at the Orioles.

Phil Hughes picked up a quality start against the Royals on Sunday, allowing three runs over six innings for his first Twins victory.

Hughes wasn't perfect, giving up nine hits and a walk in his time, but his offense gave him more than enough support to pick up his first win of the season. The numbers still aren't pretty for the right-hander, as he now has a 6.43 ERA and 1.67 WHIP through four starts. His next will come Saturday against the Tigers.

Billy Butler is expected to move back to the cleanup spot in the Royals lineup on Monday.

While Butler has struggled to the tune of .213/.286/.230 on the season, he does have three hits in seven at-bats since being demoted in the lineup, so the shakeup appears to have done some good. Salvador Perez has gone hitless in two games since the switch though and doesn't look comfortable in the fourth slot, which could be the reason for the switch back.

Stephen Strasburg yielded just two runs in six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Cardinals.

It was a nice rebound start for the Washington ace, who was hammered for six runs over four innings last week against a lowly Marlins team. Strasburg struck out nine Cardinals hitters on Sunday while issuing just one walk. He was left with a no-decision because the Nationals offense didn't grab the lead until the bottom of the ninth inning, when Denard Span hit a walkoff RBI sac fly. Strasburg will try to stay hot in his next outing at home against the Padres.
Apr 20 - 5:03 PM

Shelby Miller tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Nationals.

Miller walked five batters, but the Nationals bailed him out with some ugly at-bats in high-leverage situations and the 23-year-old right-hander wound up dropping his season ERA from 4.67 to 3.57. He'll have to be sharper in his next start at home against the Pirates. Miller does have a 1.77 career ERA at Busch Stadium.
Apr 20 - 5:00 PM

Angels optioned RHP Josh Wall to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The 27-year-old appeared in two games during his brief stay with the Angels, surrendering six runs on five hits in just one inning of work. He'll continue to function as organizational depth.
Apr 20 - 4:57 PM

Rick Porcello tossed seven innings of one-run ball in the Tigers' 2-1 win over the Angels on Sunday.

It was a promising bounceback effort from Porcello, who was tagged for five runs on 10 hits last Friday against a weak Padres team. He held a dangerous Anaheim offense to five hits on Sunday afternoon in Detroit while striking out four and issuing just one walk. Porcello will carry a 2-1 record, 3.15 ERA, and 1.05 WHIP into his next scheduled start against the Twins at Target Field.
Apr 20 - 4:39 PM

Carlos Carrasco was knocked around again but escaped with a no-decision Sunday, giving up four runs over 5 2/3 frames in a 6-4 win over the Blue Jays.

Carrasco whiffed five but permitted six hits and walked three, throwing 88 pitches over 5 2/3 innings. With a 7.31 ERA and 1.69 WHIP through his first three starts, Carrasco is going to have to shape up in a hurry to avoid getting booted from the rotation. He'll try to bounce back next weekend in San Francisco.
