Brian McCann blasted a two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Astros to a 3-1 victory over the Indians on Sunday night.

His two-run shot off of Indians' starter Carlos Carrasco broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning. It was McCann's lone hit in three at-bats on the night and he's now hitting .248/.347/.396 with four homers and 14 RBI on the season.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 and swiped his third base of the season as the Astros defeated the Indians on Sunday night in Houston.

While Altuve hasn't been running wild on the bases like he had in previous seasons, he's still hitting a terrific .316/.367/.420 with two homers and 20 RBI. From a fantasy perspective though, owners are surely expecting more power and speed out of a player that they invested an early first-round selection in.

Ken Giles slammed the door on the Indians in the ninth inning on Sunday, recording the final two outs to earn his eighth save of the season.

Giles came on with a man at third and one out in the ninth, allowing the inherited runner to score before closing out the ballgame. He has now converted each of his first eight save chances on the season while compiling a 3.60 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 12/0 K/BB ratio in his 15 innings of work.

Lance McCullers was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Indians, allowing just one hit and a pair of walks over seven shutout innings.

McCullers racked up eight strikeouts on the night. The right-hander retired the first 15 hitters that he faced until Jason Kipnis lined a single into right field to lead off the sixth inning. With the victory, McCullers improves to 6-2 on the season to go along with a 3.20 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 66/23 K/BB ratio across 59 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine effort on Saturday in a rematch against these same Indians in Cleveland.

Melky Cabrera went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his Indians' debut on Sunday night.

To be fair, it wasn't all Cabrera, as the Indians totaled just three hits as a team in this one against Lance McCullers and company. It still remains unclear if Cabrera will settle in as the club's everyday right fielder or if he'll function in more of a platoon capacity, but he should be owned in all AL-only formats.
May 20 - 11:00 PM

Carlos Carrasco pitched well in a tough-luck loss against the Astros on Sunday night, surrendering three runs on eight hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Carrasco punched out six on the night and issued just one walk. He was involved in a scoreless pitcher's duel with Lance McCullers until Brian McCann launched a two-run homer in the seventh. He departed with a man on third and two outs in the eighth inning, and the inherited runner came around to score right after he departed. Carrasco now owns a 3.65 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 63/14 K/BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column in a rematch against Lance McCullers and the Astros on Saturday.

Mitch Haniger hit a two-run, game-tying homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Mariners bested the Tigers 3-2 in 11 innings Sunday.

Tigers starter Francisco Liriano blanked the M's for eight innings before handing it off to closer Shane Greene, who allowed a one-out single before Haniger stepped to the dish. Haniger proceeded to crush a hanging breaking ball from Greene, giving him 11 dongs and 36 RBI on the year. The 27-year-old is hitting .298/.379/.571 through 46 games this year.
May 20 - 10:12 PM

John Hicks hit a two-run home run, his fifth of the season, in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc left a breaking ball hanging in the first inning and Hicks lifted it out to left for a two-run shot. The dinger was his fifth in 26 games. A catcher by trade, Hicks has filled in and filled in admirably at first base for the Tigers in Miguel Cabrera's absence, batting .302/.352/.542 on the year.
May 20 - 10:07 PM

Dee Gordon had a single, a stolen base and scored the game-winning run in the 11th inning of Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Gordon led off the 11th inning with a single and stole second base, his 16th steal of the year, before motoring around to score the winning run on Jean Segura's single. Gordon got the start at second base in the game, and he's likely to split time between the keystone and center field now that Robinson Cano is out for the foreseeable future. The 30-year-old is hitting a healthy .304/.330/.386 with 25 runs scored and those AL-best 16 steals this year.

Shane Greene allowed two hits, including a two-run home run, in suffering his third blown save of the year Sunday against the Mariners.

Tasked with preserving a two-run lead, Greene gave up a one-out single to Jean Segura before yielding a two-run homer to Mitch Haniger. Greene has 10 saves on the year but has blown three as well, and owns a 4.22 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. Joe Jimenez looms if Greene continues to falter, but his job doesn't seem to be in much jeopardy at the moment, despite Sunday's letdown.
May 20 - 9:47 PM

Wade LeBlanc allowed two runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Tigers.

LeBlanc ran into trouble early, serving up a two-run homer to John Hicks in the first inning, but he did well to keep the Tigers off the board for the rest of his time. He struck out five while issuing one walk in the outing. The southpaw has a strong 2.65 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through nine appearances, including four starts, this year, and he'll look to keep rolling Saturday against the Twins.
May 20 - 9:41 PM

Francisco Liriano allowed a lone hit over eight scoreless innings Sunday, but took a no-decision against the Mariners.

Liriano carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before Mitch Haniger's one-out single. That relegated it to simply a brilliant outing for the southpaw, who had gone 8 1/3 innings in his previous two starts combined. Unfortunately for Liriano, Shane Greene couldn't hold the lead to get him his fourth win. In nine starts this year, Liriano has a 3.42 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. He'll look for that fourth win Saturday against the White Sox.
May 20 - 9:34 PM

Drew Pomeranz will have his next scheduled start pushed back to Saturday against the Braves.

The struggling left-hander had been scheduled to pitch on Thursday against the Rays in Tampa Bay, but the Red Sox will utilize an off-day to give Pomeranz a few extra days of rest. He owns a disappointing 5.97 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 28 2/3 innings on the season.
May 20 - 9:16 PM

Brandon Belt swatted a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning to propel the Giants to a 9-5 win over the Rockies on Sunday.

In a 5-5 game in the seventh inning, Belt stepped to the dish with two on and lefty Jake McGee on the bump for the Rox. Belt delivered, as he has often this year, knocking a three-run jack over the right field wall to give the Giants the late lead. The first baseman has surprisingly been one of the best hitters in the National League this year, batting .313/.413/.594 with 11 homers, 29 RBI and 28 runs scored. He's been especially dangerous in the past week, recording six multi-hit games since last Sunday. Few are locked in like he is right now.
May 20 - 9:13 PM

Trevor Story finished 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Story knocked an RBI double in the fourth inning and added a run-scoring single in the fifth, adding to his RBI total of 35 that's second-best in the National League. Story also has 10 homers, which rank among the league leaders as well, and he's hitting .250/.335/.512 in 47 games.
