Daniel Murphy singled and ripped a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Another day, another big night for Murphy, who evidently hasn't been told that the 2015 postseason is over. The second baseman put the Nationals ahead with a solo blast off of Aaron Nola in the sixth inning and that proved to be the winning run. Murphy finishes the first two months of the season with an improbable .397/.428/.634 batting line.

Corey Seager went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Cubs.

Seager had a couple hits and a run scored before launching a three-run shot in the ninth to extend the Dodgers' lead. The homer was his ninth of the season, giving him 27 RBI. Seager has largely been as advertised in his rookie year, batting .278/.333/.474 while batting near the top of the Dodgers' lineup on a daily basis.

Miguel Montero went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

His batting average was "up" to .227 after a good game Sunday, but with Tuesday's hitless performance Montero is now hitting .218/.347/.359 through 25 games. He remains the Cubs' primary backstop, but veteran David Ross, who is Jon Lester's personal catcher, has earned himself a few more starts with his .260/.360/.479 line this year. There's no indication that the team is contemplating a change, but it could become something closer to a platoon if Montero's offense continues to sag.

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in a win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

It was Gonzalez who broke a scoreless tie in the eighth inning with an RBI single off Cubs reliever Clayton Richard. The two-hit game was his fourth multi-hit affair in his last five games, helping raise his line to .299/.376/.418.
May 31 - 11:32 PM

Jake Arrieta tossed seven scoreless innings against the Dodgers on Tuesday, striking out eight, but settled for a no-decision.

Neither offense managed much of anything before the Dodgers got two runs in the eighth, leaving Arrieta's brilliance for naught. He allowed just two hits and walked four in the outing, lowering his ERA to 1.56. The silver lining is that he also didn't take the loss, meaning he remains a perfect 9-0 through 11 starts. Arrieta will see if the month of June will be as kind to him when he takes on the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
May 31 - 11:32 PM

Scott Kazmir allowed a solitary hit over six shutout innings against the Cubs, striking out seven, but didn't factor in the decision Tuesday.

Kazmir was stellar, but not many starters -- zero this year, in fact -- have gotten wins when squaring off against Cubs starter Jake Arrieta. Kazmir issued just one free pass to go along with a harmless single by Dexter Fowler. He's now rattled off 19 strikeouts with just one run allowed over his last two starts. The southpaw will try to continue working on his 4.38 ERA and 1.21 WHIP Sunday against the Braves.
May 31 - 11:31 PM

Shane Greene (blister) tossed 4 2/3 innings of one-run ball Tuesday in a rehab start with Triple-A Toledo.

He struck out five and threw 51 of his 78 pitches for strikes. Greene has looked sharp now in all three of his rehab outings, but he had a 6.28 ERA with Detroit before hitting the disabled list and the Tigers are considering using the right-hander as a reliever. He'd have no fantasy appeal in a long relief role.
May 31 - 11:31 PM

Jose Fernandez held the Pirates to three singles over seven scoreless innings in a 3-1 victory on Tuesday.

The dynamic right-hander was in control from the jump. He struck out six batters and didn't walk anyone on the night and surely could have gone deeper in the game after throwing just 88 pitches through seven frames. However, the Marlins took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the inning, so manager Don Mattingly elected to turn it over to the bullpen and save some of Fernandez's bullets. Fernandez looks to have put the control issues he had been having behind him, as he's walked just two over his last three starts. He'll carry a 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 96 strikeouts over 67 2/3 frames into this weekend's matchup against the Mets.
