Cubs RP Pedro Strop records first save of 2015
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:37 am ET) Cubs reliever Pedro Strop picked up his first save of the season in the 9-6 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Manager Joe Maddon decided to give regular closer Hector Rondon the night off, so Strop was tabbed to close out the game.

The right-hander tossed a perfect ninth inning, striking out one, to pick up the sixth save of his career. He now has four straight scoreless outings under his belt.


Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo ties career-high with six RBI on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:35 am ET) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was the hero in Saturday night's come-from-behind win over the Diamondbacks. Rizzo went 2 for 5 and tied a career-high with six RBI. 

In the fifth inning, Rizzo cleared the bases with a three-run double to give the Cubs a 4-2 lead. Then, with the game tied at six in the top of the ninth, Rizzo hit a three-run home run to put the Cubs up 9-6, which would be the final score.

The homer was Rizzo's ninth of the season and the six RBI give him 29 on the year. 


Cubs SP Jake Arrieta gives six runs in no-decision Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:30 am ET) By definition, Cubs starter Jake Arrieta (4-4) posted a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks. The right-hander went six innings, giving up six runs (three earned) on seven hits. He walked two and struck out seven as his ERA rose to 2.95.

A couple of miscues from the defense, coupled with a sixth-inning home run from D-Backs catcher Tuffy Gosewisch, hurt Arrieta in this one. But luckily for him, his offense was able to erase a deficit, and Arrieta picked up a no decision. He'll hope for better fortunes in his next start Friday against the Royals.


Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa gets no-decision Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:27 am ET) Diamondbacks starter Rubby De La Rosa (4-2) pitched well in Saturday's loss to the Cubs, all except for one inning. The young right-hander tossed six innings, allowing four runs on four hits. He struck out eight and walked two on the evening.

All of the damage to De La Rosa came in a four-run fifth inning. With the bases loaded and two outs, De La Rosa hit Kris Bryant to force in a run, and then served up a three-run double to Anthony Rizzo. 

Fortunately for De La Rosa, his offense put up six runs on his behalf. Unfortunately for him, the bullpen wasn't able to hold the lead, as he picked up the no decision. He'll take a 4.27 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Friday in Milwaukee.


Twins pitcher Casey Fien begins rehab assignment on Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:21 am ET) Twins pitcher Casey Fien tossed one scoreless inning on Saturday for Triple-A Rochester. Fien did not allow a hit with one walk and no strikeouts in the outing.

Fien is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury and has not pitched for Minnesota since April 29. He currently owns a 1-2 record with a 4.35 ERA and three strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings of work.


Cardinals not concerned yet about Michael Wacha's innings
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:11 am ET) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha is scheduled to take the hill again on Sunday against the Royals, his ninth start of the season. Wacha has already logged 50 1/3 innings of work, something the team wants to monitor very closely throughout the season, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"It's probably something to look at later," said Matheny. "Right now, we don't want him to be concerned with that stuff. And I don't think right now is the time to conserve. I seems like this game shows you when it’s time to conserve.

"We'll monitor his workload as much as possible but when he's throwing the ball well and he feels as good as he does, we need to take advantage of it. But we have some parameters in sight of where we’d like to keep him at."

Wacha, 6-0, has a 2.13 ERA with 31 strikeouts so far this season. 


Mariners' Austin Jackson goes 3 for 5 in seventh rehab game
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:05 am ET) Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson went 3 for 5 with a double in his seventh rehab game for Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.

Jackson, who is currently on the 15-day DL with an ankle sprain, is now hitting .310 (9 for 29) on his rehab assignment and may be closer to a return. Jackson has been out of action since May 3 when he rolled his ankle. Jackson is hitting .242 with four RBI in 95 at-bats for Seattle this season.


Dodgers CF Joc Pederson blasts 12th home run of the season
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:32 am ET) Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson went 1 for 4 at the plate in Los Angeles' 2-0 win over the Padres on Saturday.

Pederson did his damage in the first inning when he crushed a lead off home run over the right field wall off of Ian Kennedy, his 12th of the season. He has now tied a Dodgers' rookie record for most leadoff home runs in season with Johnny Frederick, who set the record in 1929.

Pederson is now hitting .243 with 23 RBI in 136 at-bats this season.


Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen notches third save of the season
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:29 am ET) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen worked a perfect ninth inning on Saturday in Los Angeles' 2-0 win over the Padres, earning his third save of the season.

Jansen did not allow a baserunner and faced the minimum three batter in the inning. He recorded one strikeout and maintained his perfect 0.00 ERA through four innings of work this season.


Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger strikes out eight in win on Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:27 am ET) Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger threw eight scoreless innings on Saturday in Los Angeles' 2-0 win over the Padres. Bolsinger allowed just one hit, a leadoff single in the first inning, with no walks and eight strikeouts in his outing.

He did not allow a runner to advance past second base throughout his start. Bolsinger, now 3-0, lowered his ERA to 0.71 in 25 1/3 innings of work. He has allowed just two runs over his first four starts with 22 strikeouts and six walks.

Bolsinger will look to keep things rolling Friday against the Cardinals.
