Player News
Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez cracks another homer Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:13 am ET) Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez went 1 for 5 at the plate in Colorado's 5-4 loss to the Giants Saturday in 11 innings. 

Gonzalez did his only damage in the sixth inning when he ripped a 1-0 pitch from Tim Hudson over the center field wall for a solo home run, his second of the season. Gonzalez boosted his average to .197 with six RBI in 66 at-bats this season.


Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki cracks second home run of 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:10 am ET) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki went 2 for 5 at the plate in Colorado's 5-4 loss to the Giants Saturday in 11 innings. 

Tulowitzki did his damage in the third inning when he ripped an 0-1 pitch from Tim Hudson over the left field wall for a solo home run, his second of the season. He boosted his average to .303 with nine RBI in 66 at-bats this season.


Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar cracks first home run of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:07 am ET) Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar went 1 for 5 at the plate in Minnesota's 8-5 win over the Mariners Saturday.

Escobar did his only damage in the fourth inning when he ripped a 3-2 pitch off James Paxton over the left center field wall for a solo home run, his first of the season. Escobar, who also struck out twice, boosted his average to .171 in 35 at-bats this season.


Padres RHP Ian Kennedy mashed in return from injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:57 am ET) Perhaps Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy should get a mulligan for his disastrous start Saturday against the Dodgers. After all, it was his first outing after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Kennedy was clobbered for eight earned runs on eight hits, including three homers, in 4 1/3 innings. He walked one and fanned two.

The Dodgers teed off from the start as Andre Ethier socked a two-run blast and Carl Crawford added a run-scoring double in the first inning. A three-run tater by Adrian Gonzalez in the second gave Los Angeles a 6-3 lead. Kennedy also surrendered a two-run homer to Howie Kendrick in the fifth before his merciful removal.

He will have his first shot at redemption Friday against visiting Colorado.


Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson rips second home run of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:56 am ET) Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson went 2 for 5 at the plate in Seattle's 8-5 win over the Twins Saturday.

Jackson found success in the fifth inning when he doubled to left field off of Tim Stauffer, but was left stranded after Seth Smith flied out to end the inning. Then, Jackson ripped an 0-1 pitch off Aaron Thompson over the left center field wall for a two-run home run.

Jackson is now hitting .275 with four RBI in 69 at-bats this season.


Twins closer Glen Perkins notches fourth save of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:52 am ET) Twins closer Glen Perkins worked a nearly perfect ninth inning in Minnesota's 8-5 win over the Mariners Saturday, leading to his fourth save of the season.

Perkins allowed one hit on an infield single by Willie Bloomquist, but finished things off by getting Austin Jackson to groundout to third base. Perkins lowered his ERA to 1.29 in seven innings of work with seven strikeouts and no walks.


Rockies closer Adam Ottavino remains perfect Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:47 am ET) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino did his job Saturday night. If his bat-wielding teammates had done the same, he might have earned a victory against San Francisco.

Ottavino pitched a scoreless tenth inning, allowing a walk and hit before getting Brandon Belt to ground out. The right-hander maintained his perfect 0.00 ERA in the process through 10 appearances. He has given up just three hits in 10 1/3 innings on the year.


Mariners pitcher James Paxton earns another loss Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:46 am ET) Mariners pitcher James Paxton allowed four runs, one earned, on five hits in 4 2/3 innings of work in Seattle's 8-5 loss to the Twins Saturday.

Paxton's defense betrayed him against Minnesota when he put two runners on base in the first inning before allowing a walk with the bases loaded to bring home a run. Paxton then gave up a solo home run to Eduardo Rscobar in the fourth inning.

Paxton then couldn't get out of the fifth inning, when after Trevor Plouffe reached on an error with Joe Mauer on first, Mauer scored on a Nelson Cruz single to center. Paxton gave up one more RBI single to Kurt Suzuki before getting pulled.

Paxton, now 0-2 on the year, boasts a 6.86 ERA in 19 2/3 innings this season. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Astros.


Sizzling Giants OF Angel Pagan batters Rockies again
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:43 am ET) There is apparently something about seeing a pitcher wearing a Rockies uniform on the mound that makes Giants outfielder Angel Pagan very happy.

Pagan slugged four more hits Saturday night against Colorado. That gives him 12 in the last four games against his NL West rivals. He singled and scored in the first and added a double and two more singles.

Not that he hasn't been knocking around hurlers from other teams. Pagan owns a slash line of .355/.390/.447 and has 10 hits in his last five games.


Angels closer Huston Street earns another save Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:36 am ET) Angels closer Huston Street worked a nearly perfect ninth inning in Los Angeles' 4-1 win over the Rangers Saturday.

Street allowed just one hit and needed 16 pitches to earn his seventh save of the season. He is yet to allow a run in seven innings of work with eight strikeouts and two walks.
