Eduardo Rodriguez was dominant in a no-decision against the Cubs on Sunday night, striking out nine over six innings of one-run ball.

The left-hander gave up five hits and walked two on the night. The only blemish on his evening was a solo homer off the bat of Kris Bryant in the fifth inning. He left in line for his second victory of the season, but the Red Sox' bullpen was unable to oblige. Rodriguez owns a 2.70 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31/14 K/BB ratio through his first 23 1/3 innings on the season. He'll take on the Twins his next time out in Minnesota on Friday.

In a well-pitched and hotly-contested ballgame, the Diamondbacks finally broke through off of Jordan Lyles in the 13th inning. Brandon Drury got things started with an infield single before Descalso crushed the game-winner over the wall in right-center. He finished the afternoon 3-for-6 and is now hitting .178/.275/.333 with two long balls and eight RBI on the year.

A.J. Pollock didn't start on Sunday but went 2-for-2 with a double off the bench in an extra-inning victory over the Rockies.

Patrick Corbin pitched well in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday, allowing just two hits over 6 1/3 shutout frames.

The left-hander punched out six on the afternoon while walking a pair. As good as he was though, Germen Marquez mirrored his effort on the other side and Corbin was forced to settle for a no-decision. He has been impressive through his first six starts, compiling a 2.29 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 30/11 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings. He'll face a difficult challenge his next time out in a rematch against these Rockies at Coors Field on Friday.
Apr 30 - 8:30 PM

Charlie Blackmon had a rough day at the plate in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks, going 0-for-6 with a pair of strikeouts.

Blackmon left six stranded in this one as the Rockies were shut out through 13 innings of play. He wasn't alone in the 0-for-6 club, as Nolan Arenado experienced a similar fate on Sunday afternoon.
Apr 30 - 8:30 PM

German Marquez turned in his best start of the season in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, striking out eight over six shutout innings.

Marquez scattered six hits and a walk in the contest. It was quite the feat considering how well the Diamondbacks' offense has performed through the first month of the season, especially at home. Even with this strong effort though, Marquez still sports a horrifying 7.20 ERA and 1.90 WHIP on the season. He'll look to replicate this fine effort in a rematch against the D'Backs in Colorado on Saturday.
Apr 30 - 8:28 PM

Wil Myers blasted a three-run homer in the 12th inning on Sunday, propelling the Padres to a 5-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco.

The Padres had been shut down for the majority of the afternoon by Giants' starter Ty Blach, but they broke through and tied the game with a two-run shot by Hector Sanchez off of Mark Melancon in the ninth. That set the stage for Myers to deliver in the 12th. He had been 0-for-5 on the day before crushing a George Kontos offering into the seats in left field. Myers is off to another impressive start at the dish, slashing .310/.325/.593 with seven homers, 20 RBI and two stolen bases through the first month of the season.
Apr 30 - 7:41 PM

Jose Torres recorded his first career save on Sunday, working a scoreless 12th inning to protect a two-run lead against the Giants.

Padres' manager Andy Green had already used up Brandon Maurer, Brad Hand and Ryan Buchter before the Padres took the lead in the top half of the 12th, so it was Torres who got the call to protect the lead. The young southpaw responded by retiring all three hitters he faced in order with little difficulty.
Apr 30 - 7:38 PM

Hector Sanchez clubbed a game-tying two-run homer off of Mark Melancon in the ninth inning on Sunday.

It was his only at-bat in the contest, and he certainly made the most of it by victimizing his former teammates. Sanchez is hitting just .133/.235/.333 with one homer and three RBI in his limited action this season.
