Dodgers' Zack Greinke strikes out nine in no-decision vs. Braves
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:08 am ET) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke wasn't a factor in the decision on Wednesday, allowing one earned run on three hits and two walks in six innings while striking out nine in his team's 3-2 loss to the Braves.

Greinke, whose only run allowed came on a third-inning homer by Cameron Maybin, also went 1 for 2 at the plate and stole a base for the first time this season and the fourth time in 244 career at-bats. He has yet to be caught on the basepaths.

Greinke owns a 1.48 ERA and 58:14 K:BB ratio in 67 innings. Although he's allowed just one run in each of his last four outings, he hasn't recorded a win since May 5. Greinke's next start is slated for Tuesday against the Rockies in Colorado.


Braves' Alex Wood allows one run in win vs. Dodgers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:08 am ET) Braves pitcher Alex Wood earned the win on Wednesday after allowing one earned run on seven hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out six in his team's 3-2 victory over the Dodgers.

Wood (3-2) has allowed just one run in back-to-back outings, with both coming on the road, and the only damage he surrendered on Wednesday came on an infield single in the fourth inning. The Dodgers managed six singles in all and no extra-base hits.

Wood owns a 3.50 ERA and 38:18 K:BB ratio in 54 innings. He's scheduled to face the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Monday.


Padres' Middlebrooks homers, drives in three runs Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:07 am ET) Padres third baseman Will Middlebrooks went 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and three RBI in his team's 5-4 win over the Angels on Wednesday.

Middlebrooks opened up the scoring with an RBI double in the second inning before adding a two-run homer in the fourth to give his team a 3-1 lead. It's the third two-hit performance in four games for Middlebrooks, who owns a .226/.260/.397 line with six home runs and 17 RBI in 146 at-bats.


Padres' Craig Kimbrel earns 12th save Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:02 am ET) Padres closer Craig Kimbrel picked up his 12th save on Wednesday, giving up one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning to shut the door on his team's 5-4 win over the Angels.

Kimbrel was able to record two quick outs before surrendering a single to Johnny Giavotella, who was thrown out trying to stretch the hit into a double. The Padres closer owns a 5.00 ERA and 26:7 K:BB ratio in 18 innings.


Angels' Garrett Richards allows five runs in loss vs. Padres
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:00 am ET) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards took the loss on Wednesday, giving up five runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Padres.

Richards (4-3) gave up an RBI double in the second and a two-run homer in the fourth, both to Will Middlebrooks, but the game was tied after six innings. He then surrendered two unearned runs in the seventh after committing an error himself earlier in the frame.

Richards owns a 3.12 ERA and 43:21 K:BB ratio in 52 innings. He's slated to face the Rays on Monday.


D-Backs' Mark Trumbo goes 1 for 2 with HR in loss
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(1:00 am ET) Diamondbacks outfielder Mark Trumbo hit his eighth home run of the year in Wednesday night's 4-3 loss to the Cardinals. 

Trumbo finished 1 for 2 and drew two walks. This is the second time this year Trumbo has drawn more than one walk in a game. Trumbo is now hitting .235 over his past five games. 

For the season, Trumbo has a slash line of .265/.311/.517. 


Padres' Andrew Cashner strikes out six in win vs. Angels
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:00 am ET) Padres pitcher Andrew Cashner earned a win on Wednesday, giving up three earned runs on eight hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out six in his team's 5-4 victory over the Angels.

Cashner (2-7) had recorded five quality starts in six games since his first win of the season but was 0-5 during that stretch before breaking the skid with a win on Wednesday. He gave up a run in the second inning and another in the fourth before surrendering a solo homer in the sixth to tie the game. The Padres were able to retake the lead in the top of the seventh, putting the starter in line for the win.

Cashner owns a 3.00 ERA and 60:15 K:BB ratio in 63 innings. His next start should come Monday against the Mets at home.


Cardinals' Kolten Wong hits sixth home run of season
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(12:55 am ET) Cardinals infielder Kolten Wong got back in the hit column by hitting a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks. 

Wong was on a nine-game hitting streak before failing to record one on Tuesday. He finished 1 for 5 on Wednesday. Wong now has six home runs for the season. 

Wong now has a slash line of .316/.373/.483.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(12:52 am ET) Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward hit a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning during Wednesday night's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks. 

Down 3-2, Heyward tied the game up in the final half-inning. St. Louis would go on to win with Peter Bourjos scoring the game-winning run a few plays later. 

Heyward, who went 2 for 4, now has five home runs this season. He's hitting .239/.290/.387 this season.

His next start is projected for June 2 against the Brewers.
