Jon Lester racked up 10 strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Friday.

The All-Star southpaw surrendered three runs on five hits and a walk over his six frames. The damage against him came in the form of single runs in first, third and fourth innings. It was Lester's finest start as a Cub, though he still sports an uninspiring 6.23 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through his first 21 2/3 innings. He'll try again for that elusive first victory on Wednesday when he takes on the Pirates.

Billy Hamilton ran wild in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday, swiping three bases in three attempts.

Hamilton took full advantage of Jon Lester's inability to hold runners on, running every possible chance he got. He finished the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and is now hitting .230/.309/.328 on the season with a league-leading 13 stolen bases.

Mike Leake delivered a quality start in a no-decision against the Cubs on Friday, allowing three runs on four hits over his seven frames.

Leake punched out nine on the evening while issuing just one walk. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Anthony Rizzo blasting a two-run homer in the fourth inning and Chris Coghlan adding a solo shot in the seventh. Leake owns a 3.90 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 22/8 K/BB ratio over 27 2/3 innings on the season. He'll take on the Brewers his next time out on Wednesday.

Michael Pineda pitched 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball in Friday's 6-1 win over the Mets, allowing just five hits and striking out seven.

The Yankees made things easy for their pitcher, as they jumped on Jacob deGrom for six runs through the first three innings. Pineda took full advantage. He struck out seven and the only run he allowed came via a Lucas Duda sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. The outing lowered Pineda's ERA to 3.92. Far more impressive is his sterling 27/2 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings. Yet again, he showed pinpoint control, throwing 78 of his 100 pitches for strikes. Needless to say, he didn't walk a batter. Gone are the sizzling fastball and cover-your-eyes slider from Pineda's Mariner days, but his control has allowed him to compensate for the slight drop-off in pure stuff. Next up, a Wednesday afternoon date with the Rays.

Roenis Elias is expected to start in place of the injured Hisashi Iwakuma for the Mariners on Sunday.

Elias is scheduled to pitch at Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, so pushing him back a day and allowing him to work against the Twins makes logical sense. Expect a formal announcement from manager Lloyd McClendon following Friday's game.
Apr 24 - 10:46 PM

Rays optioned RHP Jose Dominguez to Triple-A Durham.

The 24-year-old didn't allow a run in his 5 2/3 innings with the big league club, posting a 5/2 K/BB ratio. He should get another opportunity in Tampa Bay relatively soon.
Apr 24 - 10:42 PM

Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Nationals.

Gordon hit the RBI single off of Jordan Zimmerman in the fifth inning. He also flashed his reckless side, as he was thrown out at second on the same play. Gordon giveth and he taketh away in that fashion. Later in the game, he recorded his eighth steal of the season. In Gordon's first year with the Marlins, he is slashing a lovely .370/.382/.452. If we're going to quibble with the great start, Gordon's walked just twice in 73 at-bats, meaning that his OBP is largely dependent on his bat.
Apr 24 - 10:37 PM

Yadier Molina was removed from Friday's game against the Brewers for precautionary reasons after taking a foul ball off his knee.

He was replaced by Tony Cruz, who would stand to see increased action should Molina be forced to miss a couple of games. He's considered day-to-day.
