Nathan Eovaldi was hit hard in a no-decision against the Mets on Sunday, allowing four runs on seven hits in just 4 1/3 innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the night without issuing a free pass, but couldn't get himself out of a jam in the fifth inning to earn a potential victory. While he owns an impressive 20/5 K/BB ratio through 21 2/3 innings on the season, Eovaldi will carry a 4.15 and worrisome 1.66 WHIP into Sunday's matchup against the Red Sox in Boston.

Daniel Murphy went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday night.

Murphy also drew a walk, reaching base safely in three of his four plate appearances. He has struggled mightily in the early going, slashing a mere .169/.247/.292 with one homer and 11 RBI. Hopefully this strong night finally gets him rolling.
Apr 26 - 10:54 PM

Curtis Grandson led off Sunday night's loss against the Yankees by swatting his first home run of the season off Nathan Eovaldi.

It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. While he's only hitting .222 on the season, he has boasts a .364 on-base percentage and has done a nice job as a table setter atop the Mets lineup.
Apr 26 - 10:54 PM

Jonathan Niese struggled in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday night, surrendering six runs (four earned) on eight hits over his five frames.

Niese struck out three and walked one on the night. The Mets defense certainly didn't do him any favors, committing four errors behind him. He gave up a solo homer to Alex Rodriguez in the first inning, then the Yankees broke the game open with a four-spot in the second. While he owns a 2.74 ERA, he sports a troublesome 1.61 WHIP and 14/9 K/BB ratio over 23 innings on the season. He'll look to get back in the win column against the Nationals on Friday.
Apr 26 - 10:54 PM

Mike Trout hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning of Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Trout smashed the long-ball off of Anthony Bass. It was his fourth homer of the season and his first since April 17. He finished the game 1-for-4 with two RBI and two walks. After a nuclear start to the season, Trout's "cooled off" to a .318/.432/.545 line. There's no reason to expect his usual brilliance to legitimately fade any time soon.
Apr 26 - 9:16 PM

Hector Santiago surrendered two runs (one earned) over 5 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Santiago hit Rougned Odor with the bases loaded to force in a run in the second inning, then gave up a sacrifice fly to Mitch Mooreland in the third. Those would be the only runs the Rangers would manage off Santiago. Impressive in its way, that he held them to just two runs, as Santiago walked six batters in the contest. It could have been much, much worse. It should be noted that Santiago had just six walks total coming into the game. His control isn't perfect, but it's not nearly as bad as it looked on Sunday. The southpaw now holds a 2.28 ERA and 1.23 WHIP and has a road date with the defending champion Giants in his next start.
Apr 26 - 9:10 PM

Nick Martinez did not allow a run in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Angels.

Over his six innings on the mound, Martinez scattered seven hits and walked two. He added a pair of strikeouts to complete the line. This was Martinez's second shutout outing of the season. He wouldn't factor into the decision, though, as the Rangers would need extras to cap off the 5-4 win. Through four starts, Martinez holds a microscopic ERA of 0.35, a slightly more visible WHIP of 1.12 and an 11/8 K/BB ratio covering 26 innings. These numbers are not sustainable, but we'll let him enjoy it while it lasts. He'll try to continue to baffle the universe when he takes on the A's at home in his next start.
Apr 26 - 9:01 PM

Joe Mauer tripled to drive in two runs in the eleventh inning, helping the Twins to a 4-2 win.

Mauer hit the big triple off of Tyler Olson. In addition to the extra-inning heroics, he also smacked an RBI double in the third inning. He would finish the game 3-for-5 with a walk and three RBI. The Twins star now has eight hits in his last 19 at-bats and is slashing .299/.392/.373. Mauer's lack of power remains a concern (he has yet to hit a home run and hit just four last season), but he's clearly seeing the ball well as the calender nears May. Hopefully Sunday's game is a sign of things to come.
