Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson tagged for seven runs in loss
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:26 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson allowed seven runs, six earned, on six hits in just 2 1/3 innings of work Monday in Milwaukee's 9-6 loss to the Reds.

Nelson was ripped early and often, starting in the second inning when Jay Bruce ripped a 1-2 pitch over the right field wall for a two-run shot. Then, with two on, pitcher Jason Marquis singled to left center to score a run. After Billy Hamilton reached safely, Nelson walked in a run with the bases loaded before getting out of the second.

Then in the third, Nelson allowed a run on a wild pitch before Marlon Byrd singled to center to bring home another. After another single, Nelson's night was finished.

Nelson, now 1-2, ballooned his ERA to 3.63. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Cubs.


Reds pitcher Jason Marquis tosses eight innings in win Monday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:21 pm ET) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis allowed two runs on seven hits in eight innings of work in Cincinnati's 9-6 win over the Brewers Monday. 

Marquis allowed Martin Maldonado to reach on a walk in the third. He was then sacrificed to second base before Jean Segura singled him home. Then in the sixth, Marquis allowed a double to Gerardo Parra, who was then singled home by Adam Lind for Milwaukee's second run.

Marquis, now 2-1, lowered his ERA to 5.48 on the year and picked up three strikeouts in the appearance. He will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Braves.

Angels not concerned about Albert Pujols' slow start
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:13 pm ET) Angels first baseman Albert Pujols is hitting just .200 in his first 70 at-bats, but manager Mike Scioscia said he's not concerned with Pujols' lack of productivity, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Pujols is coming off a two-hit performance during Sunday's contest and Scioscia said he can see improvement in Pujols.

"Albert, probably his last 10 at-bats, he's hit six rockets and not a lot to show for it," Scioscia said. "He'll be fine."


Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez takes no-decision on Monday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:08 pm ET) Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez gave up four runs (three earned) on five hits and struck out seven in 5 2/3 innings to take a no-decision Monday against the Red Sox.

Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval did the damage off Sanchez, delivering a two-run single in the first inning and adding a solo homer in the fourth.

Sandoval would leave the game with a neck injury.

Sanchez's next start is set for Saturday in Cleveland.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:07 pm ET) The Mets have optioned infielder Danny Muno to Triple-A Las Vegas after four games, the team announced Monday. Muno was moved back to the minors to make room from pitcher Rafael Montero.

Muno went 1 for 6 in four games for the Mets. 


Red Sox SP Joe Kelly gives up five runs in six innings for no-decision
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:05 pm ET) Red Sox starter Joe Kelly was touched for five runs on five hits in six innings of work Monday to take a no-decision against the Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays reached Kelly early as Devon Travis knocked an RBI single and Russell Martin came through with a two-run double in the first inning, putting the Red Sox behind 3-0.

Travis added a solo homer of Kelly in the fourth inning.

Kelly struck out 10 in the game.

Kelly's next start is scheduled for Sunday against the Yankees.

D-Backs P David Hernandez throws in extended spring game
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(10:04 pm ET) Diamondbacks reliever David Hernandez allowed an infield hit in an extended spring game appearance this past Saturday, according to MLB.com

It was the first time Hernandez pitched in a game since he had Tommy John surgery a year ago. He threw 13 pitches in one inning. He's expected to pitch in another extended spring game on Tuesday and a total of five. 

Once his extended spring games are over he'll begin a minor-league rehab assignment. 

"I was excited just to feel a part of a team," Hernandez said. "It was just a weight off my shoulders. It felt good to be back out there. The command wasn't anywhere near where I wanted it to be."


Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed still searching for consistency
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:04 pm ET) Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed is off to at slow start at the plate. The young player is hitting just .125 in 48 at-bats this season.

"Obviously nobody wants to start slow," said Ahmed to MLB.com. "It's a long season, there's a ton of at-bats to come, a ton of games to play. I just wish the last few games I could have put together some better at-bats to help the team win."

Ahmed also struggled with his swing in Triple-A last season as well as Double-A in 2013.

"We're making a lot of demands on him with his swing," D-backs manager Chip Hale said. "We're kind of talking to him about some things that we need him to do to be a better Major League hitter. We talked about it in Spring Training, he did it, he's getting a little bit away from it right now. But the main thing, I think, with Nick right now is pitch selection."

Ahmed is trying to not let the struggles get to him.

"Just have to stay level-headed," Ahmed said. "I lean on people that have good advice, and just stay calm and not overanalyze. Just trying to stay even keeled and go out and play."
