D-Backs SP Josh Collmenter throws six solid innings in loss
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(12:33 am ET) Diamondbacks starter Josh Collmenter (1-3) gave up three runs on six hits in six innings on Friday in a loss to the Pirates.

Collmenter gave up the runs in the first two innings, surrendering an RBI single to Neil Walker and a two-run double to Josh Harrison. 

Collmenter's next start is set for Wednesday against the Rockies.


Twins SP Phil Hughes suffers complete-game loss Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:30 am ET) Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes had his finest start of the season Friday at Seattle and was deserving of his first win. Unfortunately, Hughes was opposing Mariners ace Felix Hernandez, who was just that much better in a 2-0 win for Seattle.

Hughes (0-4) allowed just two runs on six hits and no walks in eight innings, while striking out nine. However, Hernandez threw a five-hit, complete-game shutout. He also had nine strikeouts.

Hughes' only mistakes Friday were solo home runs to Nelson Cruz and Logan Morrison. Despite the loss, he lowered his ERA from 5.30 to 4.39.

The right-hander had his fourth-career complete game Friday. He will look for his first win in his next scheduled start Wednesday vs. Detroit.


Pirates starter Gerrit Cole keeps rolling with win on Friday
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(12:30 am ET) Pirates starter Gerrit Cole (3-0) allowed one earned run and struck out seven in seven innings on Friday to defeat the Diamondbacks.

After taking a no decision in his first start this year, Cole has won three starts in a row.

Cole returns to the mound for his next scheduled start Wednesday in Chicago against the Cubs.

Mariners ace Felix Hernandez throws complete-game gem Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:25 am ET) Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez threw his 10th-career complete-game shutout during a 2-0 win Friday against the Twins. Hernandez, who also had his 24th career complete game, allowed five hits and no walks, while striking out nine.

Hernandez (3-0) was dialed in from the start Friday. He struck out the side in the first inning and didn't allow his first hit until Trevor Plouffe's two-out single in the fifth inning.

Hernandez put two baserunners on in the sixth and seventh innings, but he escaped both jams unscathed. He retired the final seven batters he faced.

The Mariners ace threw 73 of 102 pitches for strikes. He lowered his ERA to 1.61. He will be back on the mound Wednesday at Texas.


Adam Ottavino closes door for Rockies to notch save
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(12:05 am ET) Adam Ottavino (S,3) locked down the Rockies' ninth-inning lead on Friday to collect a save.

Ottavino allowed one hit and struck out one in the outing.

Giants starting pitcher Chris Heston knocked around in loss on Friday
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(12:00 am ET) Giants starting pitcher Chris Heston (2-2) was knocked around for six runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings on Friday to take the loss against the Rockies.

Rockies leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon hit a second-inning solo homer against Heston.

Heston posted three strong starts to begin the season before Friday's shaky performance.

Heston's next start is set for Wednesday in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.

Rockies SP Eddie Butler gives up four runs, takes win on Friday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/24/2015) Rockies start Eddie Butler's (2-1) four runs on nine hits in six innings Friday was good enough to earn the win over the Giants.

Two of his four runs allowed came off a two-run homer from right fielder Justin Maxwell.

Butler returns to the mound for his next start Wednesday in Arizona.

Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal earns seventh save on Friday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/24/2015) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal (S,7) put down the Brewers in order in the ninth inning on Friday to collect the save.

Rosenthal is now seven for seven in save opportunities and has allowed just one run in 8.2 innings (1.04) this season.

Cubs RP Pedro Strop held out Friday due to foot injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Cubs reliver Pedro Strop was unavailable to pitch Friday against the Reds due to a sore foot. However, the right-hander said after the game he expects to be available Saturday, per The Chicago Tribune.

Strop hasn't allowed a run through nine relief appearances (7 1/3 innings). He has 10 strikeouts to two walks. He has allowed just two hits.


White Sox SP Jose Quintana brings ERA down to 6.55
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) White Sox starting pitcher Jose Quintana had a decent outing Friday against the Royals. Unfortunately, he had to settle for a no-decision, as Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy was also pretty effective.

Quintana outlasted Duffy, who allowed an unearned run in 5 1/3 innings. However, Quintana left the game in a 2-all tie, so he didn't factor into the decision, despite allowing just two runs in seven innings. He gave up seven hits and one walk, while striking out five.

The left-hander gave up an RBI single to Alcides Escobar in the third inning and an RBI single to Paulo Orlando in the fifth inning.

The game was eventually suspended after eight innings due to inclement weather with the game tied at 2. Play will resume in the ninth inning Saturday afternoon.

Quintana did manage to lower his ERA from 8.40 to 6.55. Quintana's next scheduled start is for Wednesday at Baltimore.
