by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:35 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Jake Smolinski went 2 for 4 at the plate with a home run in Texas' 11-10 loss to the Mariners Sunday. Smolinski went deep in the third inning when he smacked a 3-1 pitch from James Paxton over the left center field wall, driving in Rougned Odor, his first home run and RBI of the year.

Smolinski is now hitting .143 in 21 at-bats this season.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(8:34 pm ET) When Jeff Francis entered Sunday's game in the fifth inning and pitched to catcher Russell Martin, it marked the first time in Blue Jays' history that the franchise featured a Canadian battery, reports the Toronto Sun

Francis, who hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, was called up by the Blue Jays from Triple-A before Sunday's game. 

Martin is from East York, Ontario.


Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson cracks first home run of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:31 pm ET) Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson went 3 for 5 at the plate with a home run and two RBI in Seattle's 11-10 win over the Rangers Sunday.

Jackson got going early, taking a 1-2 pitch from Ross Detwiler over the left center field wall to lead things off in the first inning, his first home run of the season.

Then, in the ninth, Jackson singled to left field, bringing home the game-tying run before Nelson Cruz won it later in the inning. Jackson, who picked up his first two RBI of the year, is now hitting .277 in 47 at-bats this season.


Journeyman P Brandon McCarthy may have found home with Dodgers
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(8:20 pm ET) Journeyman pitcher Brandon McCarthy may have finally found a home as the right hander, who signed a $48 million contract with the Dodgers ($6 million signing bonus) during the offseason, is off to a solid start after his strong performance Sunday against the Rockies, reports the Denver Post.

McCarthy is with his sixth MLB team and seems solidified as the Dodgers' fourth starter this year.

"He was a lot better," Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said after Sunday's game. "Take a look at his velocity when we faced him last year in Arizona. He was 90-91. Today, he was 95. He's a completely different pitcher."

Rays outfielder Steven Souza continues hitting tear Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:19 pm ET) Rays outfielder Steven Souza continues to be a force at the plate early in the season. Souza ripped his third home run of the year in the first inning off Michael Pineda, scoring David DeJesus. Souza credits his success to making adjustments, reports MLB.com.

"Their game plan today was pretty obvious -- they were going to come at me with breaking balls," Souza said. "And so I made an adjustment.

"He hung that one and I just barreled it up."

Souza is hitting .289 with 10 RBI in 45 at-bats so far this season.


Rangers reliever Neftali Feliz blows saves, tagged with loss Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:10 pm ET) Rangers relief pitcher Neftali Feliz last 1 1/3 innings Sunday and blew a save opportunity in Texas' 11-10 loss to the Mariners. 

Feliz came on in relief in the eighth and allowed a run, charged to Keone Kela to make it 10-9 before finishing off the inning. Then in the ninth, Feliz put two men on when Austin Jackson singled to right field, scoring Brad Miller from second, giving him his first blown save of the year.

Things got worse from there. Feliz then intentionally walked Robinson Cano to load the bases for Nelson Cruz, who singled to left field to end the game.

Feliz, now 0-1, boasts a 6.00 ERA in six innings of work this season.


Mariners' Nelson Cruz rips two homers, walk-off single in win Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:01 pm ET) Mariners right fielder Nelson Cruz went 3 for 6 at the plate Sunday with two home runs and the game-winning walk off single in the ninth to lead Seattle to an 11-10 win over the Rangers.

Cruz got things going early with a solo homer in the first over the left center field wall on a 1-0 pitch from Ross Detwiler. Cruz then homered again in the third, again off Detwiler, over the left field wall for a three-run shot, his eighth of the season.

Cruz then came up in the ninth with the game tied at 10 and the bases loaded after Texas intentionally walked Robinson Cano. Cruz ripped a 2-2 pitch to left field, bringing home the winning run.

Cruz is now hitting .354 with 14 RBI in 48 at-bats this season.


Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler allows five runs, earns no decision
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:57 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler allowed five runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings of work in Texas' 11-10 loss to the Mariners Sunday. 

Detwiler struggled early and often, allowing two home runs in the first inning to Austin Jackson and Nelson Cruz. Then in the third, Detwiler put two men on for Cruz, who ripped the first pitch he saw over the left field wall for a three-run home run. Detwiler allowed two more hitters to reach base before getting the hook.

Detwiler, still 0-2 on the year, now boasts an 11.68 ERA and will look for his first win of the season Sunday against the Angels.


Mariners pitcher James Paxton tagged for seven runs in ND Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:57 pm ET) Mariners pitcher James Paxton allowed seven runs on nine hits in just 2 2/3 innings in Seattle's 11-10 win over of the Rangers Sunday.

It all fell apart for Paxton in the third inning when the first four batters of the inning reached base safely, leading to a run. Then with the bases loaded, Shin-Soo Choo grounded out to bring home another run. Texas continued to peck away at Paxton, scoring five runs all on singles or fielder's choices. Jake Smolinski then smacked a two-run home run over the left center field wall. The Rangers added another run before Paxton was pulled.

Paxton, still 0-1 on the year, now boasts a 5.40 ERA and will look for his first win of the year Saturday against the Twins.
