Trevor Cahill earns first career save in extras


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:35 am ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Trevor Cahill made his first relief appearance of the season Friday, earning his first career save in a 4-2 extra innings win over the Dodgers.

Cahill pitched the bottom of the 12th inning after regular closer Addison Reed blew the save in the ninth. With the Diamondbacks up two, he worked a perfect frame, striking out one batter and finishing the inning on 11 pitches.

Cahill struggled mightily as a starter this season, particularly with his control, walking 13 batters in 18 2/3 innings. Still, he does have 18 strikeouts to go with his 8.68 ERA. 


Addison Reed blows first save on homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:30 am ET) Diamondbacks closer Addison Reed was given a one-run lead to protect Friday, and could not hold it as he blew his first save of the season vs. the Dodgers.

Reed allowed a solo home run with one out in the ninth, tying the game, 2-2. He finished the inning by recording consecutive flyball outs to send it into extra innings, where the Diamondbacks would go on to win, 4-2.

Reed now has three saves in four opportunities, and has allowed four runs in nine innings of work on the season.   


Wade Miley solid despite wildness


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:27 am ET) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Wade Miley was effectively wild Friday, but settled for a no-decision in a 4-2 extra-innings win over the Dodgers.

MIley allowed just one run in six innings of work, despite tossing five walks. He limited the Dodgers to just a pair of hits and was helped along by matching a season-high with eight strikeouts. He exited the game without a chance to win, as his seventh-inning solo home run allowed left the score tied, 1-1.

Miley has been a bit hit-or-miss this season, with just two quality starts in five trips to the mound. He is 2-2 with a 4.35 ERA in five starts, heading into his Wednesday start against the Cubs. 


Zack Greinke settles for first no-decision Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:23 am ET) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke twirled another strong start Friday against the Diamondbacks, but received little help in a no-decision.

Greinke limited the Diamondbacks to just one run in six innings of work, while allowing three hits and a pair of walks. He matched his season-high in strikeouts with eight for the third start in a row, but exited the game in line for a 1-0 loss before a rally sent it to extras and got him off the hook.

Greinke has yet to allow more than two runs in any of his three starts, and all but one of his six total runs has come by way of a home run. He has 29 strikeouts to four walks in 22 1/3 innings, and is 3-0 with a 2.42 ERA heading into his next start, Wednesday against the Phillies. 


Giancarlo Stanton walks Marlins off in grand fashion


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:18 am ET) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton played a big part in Miami's 8-4 win over the Mariners, but it wasn't all positive.

Stanton cost the team an early lead with a two-run error in the second inning, and had to make amends late. He drove in one run with an RBI single in the first inning, but made his biggest impact felt late in the game. He clubbed a walk-off grand slam in the ninth inning to secure the win, fiishing the game 3 for 3 with a pair of intentional walks.

Stanton is starting to take the next step in his fifth season, and is already more than one-quarter of the way to his first 100-RBI season. Stanton leads the majors with six home runs and 26 RBI after 17 games, while batting .329/.390/.657 in 70 at-bats. 


Wilin Rosario drives in three in blowout win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:11 am ET) Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario continued his strong run production Friday, in a 12-1 win over the Phillies.

Rosario drove in three runs in the game, giving him eight in his last six games, including at least one in five. He was 2 for 5 with a two-run double, while adding an RBI groundout.

Rosario got off to a slow start, but has raised his batting average from .206 to .268 over the last six games. He has two home runs and 10 RBI in 15 games on the season. 


Troy Tulowitzki plays a big role in blowout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:09 am ET) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was a big part of Friday's blowout win over the Phillies, as Philadelphia's pitching staff simply couldn't get him out.

Tulowitzki reached base all four times he stepped to the plate, and was a terror each time. Slugged a three-run home run in the second inning, and then accounted for two more runs with a double in the fourth and single in the sixth. He finished the game 3 for 3 with two runs, five RBI and a walk, in the 12-1 win.

Tulowitzki had gone five games without an RBI, so he had some catching up to do. He is hitting .360/.460/.620 with two home runs, 11 RBI and 13 runs scored in 16 games this season. 


Carlos Gomez hits fifth homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:01 am ET) Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez continued his hot start Friday, as he slugged his fifth home run of the season in a 5-3 win over the Pirates.

Gomez took Pirates start Charlie Morton deep for a solo home run in the fifth, and that wasn't all he contributed. Gomez also drove in a run on an infield single in the sixth inning, finishing the game 2 for 5 with one run, two RBI and three strikeouts.

Gomez is among the league leaders in a plethora of categories after 17 games, ranking second in the NL with five home runs and second in runs with 13. He is hitting .329/.385/.629 in 70 at-bats. 


Steve Cishek picks up first win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:58 am ET) Marlins close Steve Cishek hasn't had many opportunities to pitch so far, as he entered Friday's game against the Mariners with the score tied, for just his fifth appearance of the season.  

Cishek pitched well in the 4-4 game, retiring all three batters faced on 16 pitches, including one strikeout. The Marlins then went on to get him his first win of the season, with Giancarlo Stanton hitting a walk-off grand slam to clinch the 8-4 victory.

Cishek is 1-0 with a pair of saves, and has yet to allow a run in five innings of work this season.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:56 am ET) Athletics infielder Alberto Callaspo smacked his second home run of the season in his team's 11-3 home win over the Astros Friday night.

Callaspo took starter Jarred Cosart deep for a three-run home run in the opening frame. He finished 1 for 5 with a run scored and three RBI. He is hitting .340/.404/.553 with two home runs and nine RBI in 47 at-bats.

Huston Street gives up homer, picks up sixth save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:55 am ET) Padres closer Huston Street was touched for his first run of the season Friday, but still earned the save in a 2-1 win over the Giants.

Street surrendered a solo home run to Brandon Belt, making the insurance run the Padres picked up in the eighth inning even more important. He retired the side relatively easily from that point on, striking out three batters and walking one for his sixth save.

Street is 6 for 6 on save opportunities this season with nine strikeouts and two walks in seven innings of work. 


Yoenis Cespedes smacks fourth home run in three-hit performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:53 am ET) Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes notched his first three-hit game of the season Friday night against the Astros.

Cespedes singled two runs in the opening frame off Jarred Cosart in the opening frame and went yard in the second off Paul Clemens. He went 3 for 4 with two runs scored and three RBI in an 11-3 victory. He is hitting .315/.523/.838 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 65 at-bats.

Sonny Gray stays sharp in win over Astros


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:49 am ET) Athletics starter Sonny Gray tossed another quality start and earned his third consecutive victory in his team's 11-3 win over the Astros Friday night. The right-hander yielded three runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings pitched.

Gray has not lost a decision since Sept. 11, 2013. He owns a 1.80 ERA, and 1.36 WHIP along with 23:9 K:BB ratio over 25 innings pitched. He'll be seeking win No. 4 come Wednesday against Texas.

Francisco Rodriguez keeps rolling with fifth save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:49 am ET) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez wasn't at his sharpest, but still picked up his fifth save of the season in a 5-3 win Friday over the Pirates.

Rodriguez battled control issues in his outing, walking one batter and throwing just nine of 19 pitches for strikes. Still, he was bale to retire the side in order, with one strikeout, to earn the save.

Rodriguez has yet to allow a run this season while recording five saves in as many opportunities. He is off to a great start, with 13 strikeouts and just two walks through his first eight innings of work.  


Rafael Soriano faces the minimum for fourth save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:45 am ET) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano had a bit of cushion, and picked up his fourth save of the season pretty easily in a 3-1 win over the Cardinals.

Soriano walked one hitter to put the tying run at the plate with one out, but ended any possible threat by inducing a game-ending double play from the next batter. He is now perfect in four save opportunities, and has yet to allow a run in six innings this season. 


Jarred Cosart fails to make it out of opening frame in abysmal outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:44 am ET) Astros starting pitcher Jarred Cosart's night was done almost before it even started on Friday, as he recorded just one out in an 11-3 defeat to the A's.

Cosart (1-2) surrendered a two-run single to Yoenis Cespedes, a three-run home run to Alberto Callaspo and a two-run home run Josh Reddick before he was pulled for Paul Clemens in the opening frame. Cosart took the loss, only lasting one-third of an inning and allowing seven runs on three hits and four walks.

Cosart saw his ERA go from 4.00 to 7.36 after Friday's abysmal outing. He'll look to get back on track when he takes the hill Wednesday at Seattle.

Tyson Ross dazzles for second win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:41 am ET) Padres starting pitcher Tyson Ross evened his record in a 2-1 win over the Giants Friday, as he twirled another gem for the win.

Ross tossed eight terrific innings, shutting out the Giants and allowing just four hits and a walk. After allowing a leadoff double to open the game, Ross was rarely in trouble in the start, allowing just the one extra-base hit. He struck out nine batters while throwing 66 of 100 pitches for strikes.

Ross wasn't sharp in his first two starts of the season, both losses, but has found his way over his last two. He has struck out 16 with just two walks over his last 15 innings of work, and is now 2-2 with a 2.13 ERA heading into his next start, Wednesday against the Brewers. 


Howie Kendrick lifts off twice in win over Detroit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:38 am ET) Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick made his presence felt at the plate, launching a pair of home runs in his team's 11-6 win over Detroit.

He added a single in the eighth and finished 3 for 5 with two runs scored and four RBI. He is hitting .261/.320/.391 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 69 at-bats.

Adam Eaton exits game with lower body injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:35 am ET) White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton was forced out of Friday's contest against the Rangers with a lower body injury, possibly a hamstring injury, Comcast SportsNet Chicago suggests.

Eaton appeared to have sustained the injury while rounding the bag after a single in the opening frame. He remained in the game until manager Robin Ventured pulled him in the fifth inning for Jordan Danks. He is expected to return to the starting lineup Saturday night.

Matt Cain takes another tough-luck loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:28 am ET) Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain was terrific yet again Friday, but settled for a loss as his teammates failed to back him up in a 2-1 loss.

Cain went seven strong innings and allowed just a single unearned run on a passed ball in the first inning. He was nearly flawless otherwise, holding the Padres scoreless on four hits and a pair of walks overall. He struck out eight but took the loss, his third straight.

Cain is now 0-3, but that doesn't really tell the story on how well he has pitched. He has a 2.88 ERA in 25 innings, and has allowed more than two earned runs just once in four starts. He will look for better luck in his next start, set for Wednesday in Colorado. 


Wil Myers registers second three-hit game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
