by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:15 pm ET) Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon went 4 for 5 in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Nationals but did not have any runs, RBI or extra-base hits.

The four-hit performance caps off a big series for the second baseman, as Gordon went 8 for 13 with one walk, one RBI and one stolen base during his team's three-game sweep of the Nationals. He has hit .390/.407/.463 with eight stolen bases, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored in 82 at-bats.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Under best-case scenario, Rays' Jake McGee could return May 5
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4:07 pm ET) There is a chance that Rays pitcher Jake McGee returns by May 5 to face the Red Sox, according to MLB.com. 

McGee, who has been recovering from elbow surgery, is scheduled to make rehab appearances on Tuesday and Friday. He said that if everything goes well, there's a chance he could be back with the Rays for a May 5 start in Boston. 

If not, that day will be treated as another rehab start. 

"My velo is good," McGee said. "Everything depends on location and recovery."

(4:06 pm ET) Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 6-2 loss to the Marlins Sunday.

Harper kicked off the scoring with his second-inning home run, but it wasn't enough for the Nationals to avoid a sweep at the hands of their division rivals. The home run was his first of the week but already his fifth of the season. Harper has hit .270/.420/.524 with five home runs, 11 RBI and 17 walks in 63 at-bats.

DeSclafani (2-1) surrendered a solo home run in the second inning then watched the Cubs plate four runners in the fourth as his defense committed two errors in the inning. The Reds starter has yet to surrender more than two earned runs in any of his four starts while posting a 1.04 ERA and 21:6 K:BB ratio in 26 innings. He's slated to face the Braves in Atlanta Friday.


Cubs' Jake Arrieta allows two runs in win vs. Reds
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:02 pm ET) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta picked up a win Sunday, giving up two earned runs on four hits and three walks in six innings while striking out six in his team's 5-2 victory over the Reds.

Arrieta (3-1) was staked to a 5-0 lead heading into the fourth inning before surrendering a solo home run to Todd Frazier. He then ran into trouble in the fifth, loading the bases with no outs, but he was able to limit the damage to just one run in the inning before delivering a 1-2-3 sixth that included two strikeouts.

Arrieta owns a 2.03 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 25:7 K:BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings. His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Brewers at home.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3:58 pm ET) Marlins closer Steve Cishek racked up two strikeouts in a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 6-2 win over the Nationals Sunday.

Cishek was rocked in his first outing of the season and allowed one run in his subsequent appearance but has since pitched four perfect innings while recording three strikeouts. However, he owns just one save this season while posting a 8.44 ERA and 4:2 K:BB ratio in 5 1/3 innings.
