Justin Upton swatted his seventh home run of the season and drove home three, powering the Padres to an 8-6 victory over the Rockies on Sunday.

Upton's two-run blast off Kyle Kendrick got the Padres on the board in the first inning and they'd pile on from there. He would later add a run-scoring double in the fifth inning, finishing the day 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He's off to a terrific start to his Padres career, slashing .301/.340/.602 with seven long balls and 21 RBI.

Sonny Gray struck out 10 and pitched 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Rangers

Gray moved to 4-0 after the dominating outing. He allowed just two hits, but also walked a season-high seven. Let's just set aside the walks, as Gray had not walked more than two batters in any previous outing. His numbers are uniformly great this season, as he now owns a 1.69 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 35/13 K/BB ratio across 43 innings. Just about the only aspect of Sunday's start that could be considered remotely questionable (other than his control) is that he threw 119 pitches in the contest. The A's clearly feel comfortable letting the 25-year-old stretch out his arm, as he threw 219 innings last season. We'll see if this starts to add up as he progresses through what's been a stellar season to this point.

Kolten Wong cranked a walkoff solo home run in the bottom of the 14th inning as the Cardinals defeated the visiting Pirates 3-2 on Sunday afternoon.

Wong didn't start the game, but he finished 3-for-4 after entering as part of a double-switch in the top of the eighth inning. And his heroic blast to right field in the 14th secured a three-game sweep for the Cardinals, who have the best record in baseball at 18-6. Wong, 24, is batting .294/.340/.435 with two home runs and two stolen bases in 24 games this season.

Trevor Plouffe hit a grand slam and drove in five runs in Sunday's 13-3 demolishing of the White Sox.

Plouffe smashed the home run off of beleaguered White Sox starter John Danks in the third inning. The Twins scored seven runs in the inning, then added another four in the fourth inning. Plouffe chipped in an RBI single in that inning, too, on his way to a 3-for-5 day. The Twins racked up 19 hits in the win. Plouffe's now homered in back-to-back games, giving him five for the season. With the recent power surge, he's boosted his slash-line to .278/.356/.478.

Austin Jackson (ankle) said Sunday that he thinks he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list.

Jackson sprained his right ankle during Sunday's game against the Astros when he stepped on the foot of opposing starter Roberto Herandez while he was covering first base. While his optimism is encouraging, he's still likely to miss at least a few games early in the week, in which case Justin Ruggiano could see extended action.

Evan Gattis homered twice and drove in four runs in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Mariners.

Gattis put up huge numbers against the Mariners, finishing 2-for-4 with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored. He hit a three-run shot off J.A. Happ in the first inning to jump the Astros out to a 3-0 lead, then hit a solo shot in the eighth inning to put them ahead 7-6. That would hold as the final score. Gattis has now homered in three straight games, a hot streak that's come seemingly from nowhere. Prior to the start of the team's home series with the Mariners, Gattis was hitting just .174/.208/.304 with two home runs and seven RBI. He exits with a line of .198/.225/.442, six home runs and 17 RBI. Not a bad little series.
May 3 - 5:41 PM

Adam Jones went 4-for-4 with a game-deciding two-run single in Sunday's win against the Rays.

All four of Jones' hits on the afternoon were singles. The stepped to the plate in the seventh inning with the game tied 2-2. He drove a single to center field off of Kevin Jepsen to bring in two runs, which proved to be the game-deciding hit. Jones owns a terrific .402/.438/.667 batting line along with five home runs and 21 RBI.
May 3 - 4:44 PM

Matt Carpenter was removed from Sunday's game against the Pirates due to lightheadedness.

Before departing, Carpenter blasted a solo home run in the fourth inning to put the Cardinals on top 1-0. It sounds as though his exit was purely precautionary and that the star third baseman should be cleared to rejoin the Cardinals lineup for Monday's series opener against the Cubs. Sunday was the first relatively steamy day of the season in St. Louis.
May 3 - 4:36 PM

Jason Kipnis recorded four hits -- including a double and a home run -- in five at-bats to help the Indians hold off the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Kipnis knocked in a pair of runs and scored three runs as well, contributing to the Indians' 10-run afternoon. His home run, the third of the season, broke a scoreless tie in the third inning. Kipnis now has three consecutive multi-hit games and has homered in three out of his last five games. The surge has brought his triple-slash line up to .273/.327/.404.
May 3 - 4:31 PM

Devon Travis blasted a grand slam, but it wasn't enough for the Blue Jays as they fell to the Indians on Sunday.

Travis, who finished 1-for-5, put the exclamation mark on the Jays' six-run fourth inning with a grand slam off of Trevor Bauer, temporarily putting his team on top 6-2. The rookie second baseman has done nothing but hit, as he's the proud owner of a .318/.394/.625 triple-slash line with seven home runs and 23 RBI.
