Ortiz hit his first home run since April 13, which was also his last multi-RBI game. He had driven in a total of two runs in the eight games since. 

Ortiz went 2 for 5, his first multi-hit game since April 18. He raised his average to .211.


Brett Hayes replaces Roberto Perez in Indians' lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:45 am ET) Brett Hayes will get his second start of the season at catcher on Saturday. Hayes is batting eighth in the Indians' lineup.

The Indians are +105 money line underdogs at Detroit.

Reds C Devin Mesoraco held out again on Saturday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:29 am ET) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco was held out of the starting lineup again on Saturday against the Cubs.

Mesoraco has not been in the starting lineup since April 12 because of a left hip impingement, and has only made one pinch-hit appearance in that period. He remains hopeful of catching a bullpen session in the next few days, which could lead to his return as a starter. Mesoraco is hitting .091 (2 for 22) to start the season.


Mets prospect Steven Matz flirts with no-hitter vs. Triple-A Reno
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:08 am ET) Mets starting pitcher prospect Steven Matz enjoyed his best start to date on Friday, taking a no-hitter into the seventh before Nick Evans singled with two outs in the inning. He permitted two hits and a walk while striking out five over seven scoreless innings of Las Vegas' 12-0 win over Reno in Triple-A action.

Matz lowered his ERA to 2.01 on the season.

Right-handed hitters are 4 for 30 (.133) with 17 strikeouts against Bauer.


Phillies' Jonathan Papelbon dealing with an illness
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:07 am ET) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon was unavailable Friday night against the Braves due to an illness, reports MLB.com.

Papelbon, who said earlier this week he would be disappointed if the Phillies continue to lose and don't trade him to a contender, has struck out six and allowed only one baserunner over 6 1/3 scoreless frames to start the season. He has converted all three of his save chances and holds a 1.15 FIP.


A's unable to cash in on seven scoreless innings from Scott Kazmir
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:15 am ET) Athletics starting pitcher Scott Kazmir tossed seven scoreless innings Friday against the Astros. However, he did not factor into the decision, as the game went to extra innings.

Kazmir was involved in quite the pitcher's duel with Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel. While Kazmir went seven scoreless innings, Keuchel threw nine scoreless innings. Kazmir allowed five hits and three walks, while striking out seven.

The veteran left-hander lowered his ERA from 1.33 to 0.99. His next scheduled start is for Thursday against the Angels.


Astros RP Chad Qualls closes out extra-inning win at Oakland
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:10 am ET) Astros reliever Chad Qualls earned his second save of the season during Friday's 5-4 win in 11 innings at Oakland, after closer Luke Gregerson and reliever Pat Neshek both struggled to close out the win.

Gregerson blew his first save of the season in the 10th inning, allowing Oakland to tie the game at 2. Neshek then came on to open the bottom of the 11th inning, but he was gone after allowing two runs on three hits in two-thirds inning. 

Astros manager A.J. Hinch brought on Tony Sipp to face Sam Fuld for the final out, but Sipp walked Fuld to put two runners on base. Hinch then called on Qualls, who retired Brett Lawrie on a fly out to deep center to end the rally.
