Brian Roberts collects three hits in win over Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:34 pm ET) Yankees second baseman Brian Roberts returned to action Thursday and broke out of a mini-slump with a three-hit night against the Rays in Tampa.

Roberts entered Thursday with just one hit over his previous 24 at-bats. He tripled in a run in the second, doubled in the sixth and singled in a run in the seventh. He finished 3 for 5 with two runs scored and two RBI in a 10-2 win. He is hitting .194 with just three RBI in 36 at-bats this season.

Edinson Volquez gets late help in first win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:30 pm ET) Pirates starting pitcher Edinson Volquez continued his strong start to the season Thursday, and finally picked up his first win as he took down the Brewers, 11-2.

Volquez seemed destined for another no-decision, exiting the game after seven strong innings with the score tied 2-2. Fortunately, the Pirates offense came alive in the next earning, granting him the win.

Volquez was charged with two runs on eight hits and a walk over seven innings of work. He struck out just three, but was efficient throughout the game, needing just 77 pitches to finish his seven innings of work.

Volquez has opened the season well, posting a 1.71 ERA in four appearances, three starts. He will look for his second win in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Reds.  


Sergio Santos coughs up late lead in wild outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:29 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Sergio Santos had some command issues, as he became the first player in Major League Baseball history to throw three wild pitches in an inning and not get an out. He was charged with his first loss and blown save of the season Thursday night against Minnesota.

Santos entered the game with a two-run lead in the eighth inning. He allowed three runs on no hits and three walks, failing to record an out. He tossed 16 pitches, only four which were called for strikes.

Santos entered Thursday with a 3.38 ERA and left Thursday's nightmare outing with a 8.44 ERA over 5 1/3 innings. He is 4 for 5 in save chances with a 2.06 WHIP and 11:6 K:BB ratio over that span.

Yovani Gallardo gets little support in another quality start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:24 pm ET) Brewers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo pitched well again Thursday against the Pirates, but received little support as he settled for a no-decision in an 11-2 loss.

Gallardo tossed his fourth quality start in a row to open the season, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks. He struck out six and ultimately finished with scoreless frames in five of six innings, but left the game with a 2-2 before the bullpen imploded.

Gallardo is off to a great start through four appearances, though he is just 2-0 thanks to some poor run support over the last two starts. He has a 1.46 ERA in 24 2/3 innings heading into his next start, schedule for Tuesday against the Padres. 


Dustin McGowan lasts only four innings in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:22 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Dustin McGowan was not at his best as he lasted only four innings on Thursday, but managed to escape with a no-decision in a 9-5 defeat to the Twins in Minnesota.

McGowan allowed a solo home run to Brian Dozier in the opening frame and a two-run double to Chris Colabello in the fifth before the end of his night. He was charged with three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out three over four innings of work. He ran his pitch count to 85, with 49 of his pitches called for strikes.

McGowan has allowed seven runs over his first 13 innings pitched to start the season. He'll take the hill Wednesday at home against Baltimore.

Big seventh inning sinks Ian Kennedy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:18 pm ET) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy was on top of his game for much of his start Thursday, but fell apart late in a 3-1 loss

Kennedy made it through seven innings in the start, and six of them were nearly flawless. He allowed just one hit through his first six innings and appeared well on his way to his second win even with little support. Unfortunately, three hits and a walk in the seventh inning led to three runs and left Kennedy on the wrong side of a 3-1 loss.

Kennedy struck out seven while allowing four hits and two walks in his seven innings, while lowering his ERA to 4.13. He is 1-3 through four starts, with just nine runs of support total heading into his next start, set for Tuesday in Milwaukee. 


Franklin Morales picks up first win thanks to late rally


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:14 pm ET) Rockies pitcher Franklin Morales tossed his first quality start of the season Thursday, in a 3-1 win voer the Padres.

Morales allowed just one run on a fourth-inning solo home run that put him down 1-0, which was actually where the score stood when Morales exited the game. Fortunately, the offense rallied to score three runs in the seventh inning, in time for Morales to get the win.

Morales was charged with one run on four hits and a walk in six innings of work, while striking out five. He pushed his record to 1-1, with a 4.82 ERA. His next start is set for Tuesday against the Giants.  


Mike Pelfrey escapes rough outing with no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:10 pm ET) Twins starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey was not at his best again on Thursday, but this time he escaped with a no-decision in a 9-5 win over Toronto. The right-hander was charged with five runs -- four earned -- on four hits and five walks while striking out one over 4 1/3 innings pitched.

Pelfrey owns a 7.98 ERA and a 1.91 WHIP through his first three starts (14 2/3 innings). He'll look to get back on track Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Casey Fien gets second win of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:09 pm ET) Twins reliever Casey Fien was awarded the win Thursday night against the Blue Jays.

Fien (2-0) worked his way around a base hit and needed just 16 pitches to make it out of the eighth inning unscathed. He owns a 4.50 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP with a 4:2 K:BB ratio over six innings pitched this season.

Taylor Jordan hit hard in second loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:06 pm ET) Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan struggled through his second subpar start in a row Thursday, in an 8-0 loss to the Nationals.

Jordan took the loss after allowing seven runs -- five earned -- in 5 1/3 innings of work, and he was in trouble from the start. Jordan was tagged for four runs in the first inning, though one of them was unearned. He allowed seven hits and a pair of walks, while striking out four and throwing 61 of 96 pitches for strikes.

Jordan is now 0-2 through his first three starts of the season, and has allowed 10 of his 11 earned runs over the last two outings.  He has a 5.94 ERA heading into his next start, set for Tuesday against the Angels.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:01 pm ET) Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright twirled a gem Thursday against the Nationals, in an 8-0 win.

Wainwright tossed his first complete-game shutout of the season in the win, and was barely in trouble at all. He surrendered just two hits, both singles, while also walking three batters. He struck out eight batters for the second start in a row as well.

Wainwright has been his typically brilliant self through four starts, holding a 3-1 record and 1.80 ERA in 30 innings of work. He has struck out 32 batters while walking nine heading into his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Mets. 


Royals get the best of Scott Feldman


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:57 pm ET) Astros pitcher Scott Feldman took a step back and was on the wrong end of a decision for the first time this season in his team's 5-1 defeat to the Royals on Thursday.

Feldman (2-1) surrendered a run-scoring single to Mike Moustakas in the second, a two-run double to Alcides Escobar in the fourth and a run-scoring double to Salvador Perez in the fifth. He was charged with five runs -- four earned -- on nine hits and one walks while striking out two over six innings pitched.

Feldman has allowed just five earned runs over his first 26 2/3 innings pitched through four starts. He'll look to turn things around again Tuesday in Seattle.

Timeline becoming clear for Doug Fister following sim start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:53 pm ET) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister overcame the first hurdle in his recovery from a lat strain Thursday, as he got through a two simulated innings without an issue Thursday.

Fister will make another simulated start in five days, with a rehab assignment likely to come after. According to MLB.com, the team has a timetable for Fister that could have him back with the team within 20 days, if his two scheduled rehab starts go according to plan.

"We have to build [up Fister] like we [tried to] build him [up] this spring," Williams said. "I think he is a little bit ahead of the game in that regard. I would like him to get five innings somewhere to make sure he can up that pitch count."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:52 pm ET) Royals pitcher James Shields put together a dominant performance on Thursday, giving his team eight strong innings as he picked up his first win of the season against the Astros in Houston.

Shields lowered his ERA from 4.26 to 2.37 over his last two starts, allowing just two earned runs over his last 12 2/3 innings pitched. He will make his next start Tuesday in Cleveland.

CC Sabathia outduels David Price in win over Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:40 pm ET) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia outdueled David Price and received more than enough run support on Thursday, earning his second win of the season in a 10-2 victory over the Rays in Tampa.

Sabathia (2-2) served up a solo home run to Sean Rodriguez in the seventh for his only blemish of the night. He was charged with two runs -- one earned -- on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over seven innings pitched.

Sabathia lowered his ERA from 6.63 to 5.19 after his best performance of this young season. He will look to keep things rolling Wednesday against Boston.

Carlos Martinez not considered an option for spot starts


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:39 pm ET) The Cardinals are not considered moving pitcher Carlos Martinez from the bullpen to the rotation, despite losing Joe Kelly to a hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list Thursday, according to MLB.com.

"You'd be looking at stretching him out just to slow him back down again," Matheny said. "This is one of those scenarios where we just don't know how long it's going to be [for Kelly]. It's not set in stone, and I think you take that risk of pulling [Martinez] out, getting him going just to slow him back down if things [with Kelly] progress quickly."

According to the report, the team prefers to pick a starter from the Triple-A squad in Memphis, rather than move Carlos Martinez into a starting role for a few spot starts. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney are both mentioned as possible options for the spot.

Martinez has a 1.86 ERA in 9 2/3 innings of the bullpen, and has yet to throw more than 31 pitches in any outing. 


Yankees knock David Price around Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:33 pm ET) Rays starting pitcher David Price took a step back on Thursday, suffering his first loss of the season in a 10-2 defeat to the Yankees.

Price (2-1) surrendered run-scoring triples to Brian Roberts and Jacoby Ellsbury in the second and home runs to Alfonso Soriano and Brian McCann in the fifth. He was charged with six runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings pitched.

Price has served up four home runs through his first four starts. He's posted a 4.39 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP along with 28:3 K:BB ratio over 26 2/3 innings pitched. He'll look to get back on track Wednesday against Minnesota.

Ryan Jackson likely to need surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:29 pm ET) Padres infielder Ryan Jackson would be a possible call-up option if Chase Headley has to go on the disabled list with a bicep injury, but MLB.com reports he is dealing with an injury of his own.

Jackson, who is with Triple-A El Paso, has a wrist injury that looks like it will require surgery, according to the report. He is set to report to the team's training staff for examination this week before a decision is ultimately made.  A possible timeline for his recovery is not yet known.

Jackson was hitting .214/.267/.286 prior to the injury for El Paso. He appeared in 20 games at the major-league level over the previous two season with the Cardinals.
