Jason Grilli coughed up a run in the ninth against the Dodgers on Wednesday but held on to notch his 14th save in a 3-2 win.

With one out, Grilli served up an Alex Guerrero solo homer to right. Andre Ethier next singled, but Grilli ended the affair in a timely fashion after that. It's highly questionable whether Grilli is a superior ninth inning option to Jim Johnson -- who tossed another scoreless eighth and boasts a 2.42 ERA -- but the former is 14-for-15 in save chances (ranking No. 2 in the NL in saves) and isn't in danger of losing his job at the moment. Of course, with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP, a big implosion or two could change that.

Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 on Wednesday as the Dodgers lost to the Braves 3-2.

Pederson, 23, went 7-for-13 in the three-game set against Atlanta. He boasts a .945 OPS and is on pace for 42 homers, 81 RBI and 95 runs. The heavy frontrunner for NL Rookie of the Year honors has secured leadoff duties for the foreseeable future (and perhaps decade) by posting a .392 OBP with an outstanding walk rate.

Alex Wood permitted just one run and struck out six over seven frames in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers.

He scattered seven hits and declined to issue a free pass. The stellar showing was good to see after Wood was scratched from his last start on Friday because of a stomach virus. He showed no ill effects here, keeping at bay a dangerous Dodgers lineup in Los Angeles. Wood has a decent 3.50 ERA, but it comes with a terrible 1.50 WHIP and only 38 strikeouts over 54 innings.

Zack Greinke painted six innings of one-run ball and struck out nine in a no-decision against the Braves on Wednesday.

Greinke will not make another start in May, which means he didn't give up more than one run in any start this month. Thus far, Greinke's surface level performance has given off whiffs of his dominant 2009 with the Royals. Why will he not accrue 10.1 WAR again or continue to pitch quite this well? Diminishing stuff (it's still good): Greinke struck out 242 in 2009, whereas he's whiffed 49 in 61 innings this year. Tonight, he set a new season-high in strikeouts by two.

Will Middlebrooks went 2-for-4 with a double, home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 5-4 win against the Angels.

Middlebrooks' two-run round-tripper off Garrett Richards in the fourth inning gave the Padres a 3-2 lead in an eventual 5-4 triumph. He continues to be a frustrating asset in NL-only leagues, though the third baseman has performed better of late. Middlebrooks has exactly two hits in five of his last eight games. Of course, in the other three he had zero. He's slashing .226/.260/.397 with six homers.
