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 10 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.


Giants closer Santiago Casilla blows first save Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:34 am ET) Giants closer Santiago Casilla has been shaky at times this season, but he had yet to blow a save.

That is, until Saturday.

Casilla was 5-for-5 when he entered with one out and the bases empty in the ninth against Colorado. He allowed successive singles to Nick Hundley and DJ LeMahieu before a fielder's choice tied the game. A caught stealing prevented further damage.

The left-hander has surrendered one run in three of his last seven appearances.


Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis picks up another loss Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:31 am ET) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis allowed two runs on four hits in five innings of work in Texas' 4-1 loss to the Angels Saturday. 

Lewis, who added four strikeouts and two walks to his totals, worked into the sixth inning, but was unable to record an out after allowing three consecutive batters to reach base. He was credited with two runs allowed after Roman Mendez allowed a single to Albert Pujols to bring home a run and then C.J. Cron to single home two more.

Lewis, now 1-2 on the year, boasts a 3.75 ERA in 24 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Friday against the Athletics.


Rockies LHP Jorge De La Rosa has encouraging Saturday start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:27 am ET) Rockies southpaw Jorge De La Rosa certainly made progress Saturday night despite being limited to five innings.

De La Rosa, who was clobbered for seven runs on nine hits in two innings in his 2015 debut Monday after coming off a groin injury, worked his way through give against the Giants. He yielded two runs on four hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. His current 11.57 ERA looks mighty fine compared to the 31.50 with which he entered the game.

The lefty settled down after allowing a run-scoring double to Buster Posey in the first. He yielded one hit in the next two innings and a home run to Andrew Susac in the fourth before escaping a jam in the fifth.

De La Rosa will make his third start of the year Friday against San Diego.
