Mike Olt hits fourth homer Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:19 am ET) Cubs third baseman Mike Olt continued his all-or-nothing season Tuesday, clubbing his fourth home run of the season in a 9-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Olt went 1 for 4 in the game and struck out twice, giving him eight strikeouts in the last four games. Still, he clubbed a three-run shot in the fifth inning to provide what would ultimately be the winning margin in the game.

Olt is hitting just .195, but is providing the kind of power that became his calling card in the minors. Of his eight hits in 16 games, four are home runs and five are for extra bases. He has a .195/.250/.512 line in 41 at-bats. 


Chase Headley hits second home run in big spot


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:12 am ET) Padres third baseman Chase Headley is showing some signs of life, as he ended a power drought and brought his batting average to the Mendoza line in a 2-1 win over the Brewers Tuesday.

Headley slugged his first home run in nine games Tuesday, and it couldn't have come at a more perfect time. He went deep in the 12th inning to provide the winning run in the game, and finished 2 for 4 overall with a  walk and strikeout added.

Headley is hitting just .200 through 18 games with two home runs and seven RBI, but has hit safely in four of five games to raise his average 40 points. 


Ben Revere racks up four hits in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:09 am ET) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere did his job Tuesday, reaching base four times in a 3-2 win over the win over the Dodgers.

Revere doesn't walk much in general, so each of his times on base came via a single, as he went 4 for 5 at the top of the order. He scored just once, while adding his sixth stolen base of the season.

Revere has raised his batting average in recent days, and is now hitting exactly .300 through 18 games. He has a .319 on-base percentage and .329 slugging percentage in 70 at-bats as well, with 10 runs scored. 


Dee Gordon passes concussion test


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:06 am ET) Dodgers infielder Dee Gordon took and passed a concussion test after leaving Tuesday's game, as he told the O.C. Register. He suffered a head injury while sliding into third base in the seventh inning, but appears to have avoided the worst-case scenario. His status is likely day to day moving forward. 

Jonathan Papelbon nearly flawless in return from illness


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:03 am ET) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon was able to take the mound for a save opportunity Tuesday against the Dodgers, despite missing the team's previous game with an illness. He had little trouble taking care of the Dodgers in the outing, retiring them on seven pitches despite allowing a two-out single. He induced a trio of flyballs to retire the side, earning his sixth save in seven chances.

Papelbon has allowed a run in just one of his nine appearances this season, as he has pitched better than his 3.24 ERA might indicate. He has seven strikeouts in 8 1/3 innings, while allowing three walks and seven hits total. 


Hyun-Jin Ryu settles for no-decision in extra-innings loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:59 am ET) Dodgers starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu continued his strong pitching Tuesday against the Phillies, though he did allow runs for just the second time in the 3-2 loss.

Ryu settled for a no-decision despite tossing his fourth quality start in six trips to the mound. He allowed just two runs despite scattering nine hits and a pair of walks. Ryu didn't have his best stuff, striking out just three batters for the second straight start, while throwing 68 of 106 pitches for strikes.

Ryu has been mostly stellar this season, and has a 3-1 record and 2.12 ERA in 34 innings of work. His next start is set for Sunday against the Rockies. 


A.J. Burnett remains solid, winless


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:53 am ET) Phillies starting pitcher A.J. Burnett had a good day at the mound and the plate Tuesday, but ended up having to settle for a no-decision in a 3-2, extra-innings win.

Burnett limited the Dodgers to just two runs in 6 2/3 innings of work, his third quality start in five trips to the mound. He scattered six hits and a walk in his six-plus innings while striking out five, but remains winless on the season, as the Phillies offense gave him little support in the no-decision.

Burnett is off to a solid start to the season, despite an 0-1 record. He has a 2.73 ERA in five starts, and will look for his first win in his next start, Sunday in Arizona. 


Dee Gordon forced out with head injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:49 am ET) Dodgers infielder Dee Gordon was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Phillies late, due to an apparent head injury. He suffered the injury sliding into third base on a steal in the seventh inning, and left after scoring later in the inning.

The extent of Gordon's injury is not yet known, though he will likely go through the league's concussion protocol Tuesday night. He went 2 for 3 before suffering the injury to raise his season average to .369. 


Pedro Figueroa exits game Tuesday with elbow injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:47 am ET) Rangers pitcher Pedro Figueroa was removed from Tuesday's game against the A's after suffering an elbow injury, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Figueroa threw just one pitch in the game, hitting a batter. He immediately began shaking his arm and was removed after a visit from the trainer. The team will likely have him undergo an MRI. Figueroa owns a 4.00 ERA and 3:3 K:BB ratio in nine innings.


LaTroy Hawkins pitches around trouble for save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:45 am ET) Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins didn't have to pitch the full inning for the save Tuesday, but still almost blew his first save before finding his way in a 2-1 win.

Hawkins entered the game with one out already recorded in the ninth, thanks to lefty-specialist Rex Brothers' work against Brandon Belt. Hawkins played with fre by allowing the first two batters faced to reach base via a walk and single, before ending the threat and recording his sixth save in as many tries.

Hawkins has six saves, a 1.23 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in eight appearances this season, though he also only has three strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings. 


Franklin Morales strong in second win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:41 am ET) Rockies pitcher Franklin Morales won his second decision in a row Tuesday, as he helped take the Giants down, 2-1.

Morales didn't have much room for error, and he did all he could to earn his win. He allowed just one run on a solo home run, and scattered two walks and five hits in seven innings of work. He struck out a season-high seven batters, while throwing 67 of 99 pitches for strikes.

Morales struggled early in the season, but has found his way since. He has allowed two runs over his last two starts, both wins, after he was tagged for nine runs in his first two. He carries a 2-1 record and 3.86 ERA into his next start, set for Monday in Arizona. 


Matt Albers dealing with shoulder tightness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:41 am ET) Astros pitcher Matt Albers was unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Mariners due to shoulder tightness, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Albers may not be able to pitch Wednesday either, but the team doesn't see the injury as a major issue. He has allowed just one earned run in 10 innings while striking out eight and walking three in eight appearances.


Madison Bumgarner loses in complete game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:37 am ET) Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner threw a complete game Saturday against the Rockies, but still took the decision as the Giants fell, 2-1.

Bumgarner tossed the shorter version of a complete game, as the Rockies didn't need the bottom of the ninth to earn the win. He was charged with two runs in eight innings of work, both coming off solo home runs. He scattered nine hits and a walk in his eight innings of work, while striking out six batters in the loss.

Bumgarner hasn't been quite as sharp as expected so far this season, and but still has a 3.14 ERA to go with his 2-2 record. He will look to get back over .500 in his next start, set for Monday against the Padres.  


Huston Street picks up seventh start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:37 am ET) Padres closer Huston Street continued his strong start to the season Tuesday against the Brewers, picking up his seventh save in a 2-1, extra-innings win.

Street tossed a perfect 12th inning, a nice bounce back after allowing the first runs of his season a few days prior. He retired the Brewers in order on 15 pitches, including one strikeout.

Street is now perfect in seven save opportunities this season, while allowing one run in eight innings of work. He has 10 strikeouts and only two walks and four hits allowed in eight appearances. 


Chris Carter smacks first home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:28 am ET) Astros designated hitter Chris Carter went 2 for 4 with two RBI and his first home run of the season in his team's 5-2 win over the Mariners Tuesday.

It's been a rough beginning to the season for Carter, who was 1 for 19 over his previous seven games before Tuesday's two-hit performance. He now owns a .148/.264/.279 line in 61 at-bats.


Yovani Gallardo takes another tough no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:27 am ET) Brewers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo continued his strong start to the season Tuesday against the Padres, but had to settle for his third no-decision in a row in a 2-1, extra-innings loss.

Gallardo allowed just one run in seven innings of work, with opposing starting Ian Kennedy doing the damage with a sacrifice hit. He gave up five hits and a pair of walks in his seven innings of work, while striking out four and racking up 14 groundball outs.

Gallardo has yet to allow more than two runs in any start this season, and carries a 1.42 ERA and 2-0 record into his next start, Monday in St. Louis. 


Ian Kennedy pitches well, settles for no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:26 am ET) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy pitched well Tuesday against the Brewers, but had to settle for a no-decision in a 2-1 extra-innings win.

Kennedy pitched six strong innings and made just one mistake throughout, allowing a solo home run to Scooter Gennett in the fifth inning. He was nearly flawless otherwise, allowing four hits and three walks, while striking out five batters and throwing 64 of 100 pitches for strikes.

Kennedy is having a nice bounceback campaign early, though his record doesn't really show it. He has a 3.60 ERA through five starts, but is just 1-3. He will try to snap a three-game winless streak in his next outing, set for Sunday in Washington.


Josh Fields earns second save vs. A's


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:24 am ET) Astros pitcher Josh Fields recorded his second save of the season Tuesday, striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning to lock down his team's 5-2 win over the A's.

Fields' first save came all the way back on April 2, and three Astros relievers have shared the team's five saves thus far. It was Fields' turn Tuesday, and he turned in a 1-2-3 inning to pick up the save. He owns a 2.00 ERA and 11:4 K:BB ratio in nine innings.


Collin McHugh strikes out 12 in debut Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:20 am ET) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh was masterful in his season debut Tuesday, striking out 12 in 6 2/3 scoreless innings while giving up three hits and walking none in his team's 5-2 win over the Mariners.

McHugh (1-0) was making his first start in place of Scott Feldman, who is on the disabled list with a biceps injury, and he couldn't have asked for a better performance, ceding just three singles while throwing 61 of his 89 pitches for strikes. He's on track to square off with the A's Sunday.


Erasmo Ramirez strikes out eight in quality start Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:20 am ET) Mariners pitcher Erasmo Ramirez gave up three earned runs on three hits and three walks in six innings while striking out eight in his team's 5-2 loss to the Astros Tuesday.

Ramirez (1-3) surrendered home runs in the first and second inning but settled down after that, pitching four scoreless innings before coming out. However, he was no match for Astros starter Collin McHugh, who turned in a gem to deliver a loss to the Mariners starter. Ramirez has posted a 6.75 ERA and 20:11 K:BB ratio in 24 innings. Thanks to two off-days in the next week, he's lined up to face the Yankees next Tuesday if the team decides not to skip his spot in the rotation.


Brandon McCarthy loses fourth in a row


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:18 am ET) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy was a bit better Tuesday, but still ended up dropping his fourth straight decision in a 9-2 loss to the Cubs.

McCarthy allowed just one earned run in his five innings of work, but a defensive miscue in the fifth inning proved especially costly. McCarthy could have gotten out of the inning unscathed even after a leadoff single, but a fielding error allowed the inning to go on, and McCarthy ultimately surrendered a three-run home run to Mike Olt as a result.

McCarthy wasn't without blame even with the defensive issues, however, as he allowed his one earned run on seven hits and a pair of walks. He is now 0-4 with a 6.23 ERA in 30 1/3 innings of work through five starts, and will continue the search for his first win Sunday against the Phillies. 


Joakim Soria locks down fifth save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:18 am ET) Rangers closer Joakim Soria recorded his fifth save Tuesday, striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning in his team's 5-4 win over the A's.

Soria got out to a slow start this April, recording just one save in his first five appearances while giving up four earned runs in five innings. However, he's tossed four scoreless innings in his last four appearances, racking up four saves while not allowing any hits or walks. He owns a 4.00 ERA and 9:2 K:BB ratio in nine innings.


Alexi Ogando earns win with one-out appearance Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:15 am ET) Rangers pitcher Alexi Ogando was able to retire the only batter he faced Tuesday, earning him a win in his team's 5-4 victory over the A's.

Ogando (1-1) was able to end the eighth inning with his team down one, and the offense would go on to score two runs in the ninth. He owns a 5.23 ERA and 8:5 K:BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings.


Luke Gregerson blows save opportunity Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:12 am ET) Athletics pitcher Luke Gregerson couldn't protect a 4-3 lead Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on three hits in the ninth inning of his team's 5-4 loss to the Rangers.

Gregerson (0-1) was gifted a second chance when the Rangers couldn't successfully execute a squeeze bunt, resulting in an out at home plate. However, it ended up not making a difference, as the Rangers would go on to plate two runs against Gregerson. He owns a 3.09 ERA and 7:1 K:BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings.


Nick Martinez struggles in spot start Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:10 am ET) Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez struggled in his spot start Tuesday, giving up four runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks in five innings while striking out one but not factoring into the decision in his team's 5-4 win over the A's.

Martinez threw just 50 of his 92 pitches for strikes in the game, which was his second start of the season. He should return to Triple-A with Matt Harrison on his way back, presumably this weekend. Martinez owns a 4.09 ERA and 4:6 K:BB ratio in 11 innings with the Rangers.
