Yankees P Michael Pineda struggles in loss to Rangers
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(11:49 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda gave up seven runs — four earned — in Friday night's 10-9 loss to the Rangers. 

Pineda gave up eight hits and one walk while striking out four. He gave up two home runs — one to Prince Fielder and one to Mitch Moreland. He now has a 3.59 ERA this season. 

After five consecutive games with three earned runs or less, Pineda has hit a bit of a skid with nine in his last two, along with 18 total hits. Pineda's record is still a strong 5-2 with not a lot to be concerned about with him despite his past two outings.

Pineda's next start is projected for May 27 against the Royals. 


Rangers go with Ross Ohlendorf late, he picks up save
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(11:41 pm ET) With Shawn Tolleson not available, the Rangers relied on Ross Ohlendorf in Friday's save situation. 

Ohlendorf came through, recording his first save of the season in Friday night's 10-9 win over the Yankees. 

Ohlendorf struck out two batters but allowed a home run and a walk. This was the first run Ohlendorf has allowed this season in three innings. He now holds a 3.00 ERA.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Kipnis scored two runs and also drove in two runs and walked once during the game. He is now batting .337 on the season.

Prior to his three-hit game Friday, Kipnis had been hitting .222 with no RBI in his last five games.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(11:38 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis added a win to his record even though his performance in Friday's 10-9 victory over the Yankees wasn't his best. 

Lewis gave up five earned runs in 6 2/3 innings of work. Four of those runs came in the fourth inning, with three on a home run from Didi Gregorius. This is the second consecutive game that Lewis, 35, has allowed five earned runs. 

Lewis allowed 12 earned runs in his first seven starts but has given up 10 in his past two. Lewis now has an ERA of 3.49. 

His next start is projected for May 27 against the Indians.

Prior to his two-hit game Friday, Moss had been hitting .200 with one home run in his last five games.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Ramirez is now hitting .250/.268/.358. 


White Sox get 8 hits on Twins P Phil Hughes
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(11:25 pm ET) Twins pitcher Phil Hughes gave up two earned runs in Friday evening's 3-2 loss to the White Sox. 

It was a mixed bag for Hughes, who kept the run total low but did give up eight hits. He struck out three batters and walked one. This is the third game in his last four that he's allowed at least eight hits. 

Hughes now has an ERA of 4.50 this season. 

His next start is projected for May 27 against the Red Sox. 


Reds SP Mike Leake walks five batters during Friday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:23 pm ET) Reds pitcher Mike Leake had trouble with his command during Friday's 7-3 loss to the Indians.

Leake walked five batters during the outing, which was one shy of his season high. He was only able to pitch four innings and gave up five runs on seven hits during the start. He also surrendered a home run to Brandon Moss in the third inning.

Leake has given up 14 runs over his last two starts and failed to pitch past the fifth inning. His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Rockies.


White Sox P David Robertson converts save opportunity
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Robertson pitched the ninth inning and struck out two batters, improving his ERA to 0.98 for the season. This is the fourth time Robertson has earned a save in his past five appearances. 

His two strikeouts snaps a two-game streak where he didn't record one.
