Rockies' Wilin Rosario still adjusting to first base
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:56 pm ET) Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario is still looking to figure things out at his new position, first base. Rosario misplayed a couple of ground balls Friday, but manager Walt Weiss still has faith in him figuring it out, according to the Denver Post.

"Both plays at first were not routine plays," Weiss said. "The ball down the line was a difficult play. ... The other was a throw in the dirt that he didn't pick. But he's working really hard and has a great attitude. I haven't backed off that all — having him at first."

Rosario is hitting .333 in 12 at-bats this season.


Mark Teixeira connects for fourth HR, ties A-Rod for Yankees' lead
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(9:54 pm ET) First baseman Mark Teixeira provided the only offense for the Yankees in their loss on Monday, a solo home run in the second inning.

Teixeira now has four homers on the season which ties him with Alex Rodriguez for the team lead.

Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun cracks first home run Monday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:47 pm ET) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun went 1 for 4 at the plate in Milwaukee's 6-1 loss to the Reds Monday. Braun was kept quiet by starter Anthony DeSclafani, but found success in the ninth on Burke Badenhop. He ripped the first shot he saw from Badenhop over the center field wall for his first home run of the year.

Braun is now hitting .238 with three RBI in 42 at-bats this season.


Reds first baseman Joey Votto rips fifth home run of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:46 pm ET) Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 2 for 4 at the plate Monday in Cincinnati's 6-1 win over the Brewers.

Votto struggled in his first two at-bats but was able to reach base in the sixth with a single. He was called out at home when trying to score on a grounder in the infield with the bases loaded. Votto then crushed the first pitch he saw from Wily Peralta over the left center field wall for a two-run blast, scoring Billy Hamilton.

It was Votto's fifth home run and 12th RBI of the year, leading the team in all offensive categories.


Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta allows six runs in losing effort Monday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:46 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta allowed six runs on eight hits in Milwaukee's 6-1 loss to the Reds Monday. 

Peralta worked efficiently through his first five innings of work before finding trouble in the sixth. He allowed the first three runs to reach base safely in the inning before getting Marlon Byrd to ground into an out at home plate. Then, Brayan Pena hit a sacrifice fly to center to bring in the first run of the game.

Then, Zack Cozart opened the flood gates with a three-run home run over the left field wall, driving in Byrd and Jay Bruce. Peralta also allowed a two-run shot to Joey Votto in the seventh before being pulled in the eighth.

Peralta, now 0-2, boasts a 5.68 ERA and will look for his first win of the year Saturday against the Cardinals.


Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani dominates in win Monday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:46 pm ET) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani tossed eight scoreless innings in Cincinnati's 6-1 win over the Brewers Monday. 

DeSclafani worked efficiently throughout the start, allowing just two hits in the outing. He did not allow a baserunner to get past second base in his eight innings. DeSclafani, now 2-0 on the year, has allowed just two runs in his first three starts of the season and owns a 0.86 ERA.

He will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Cubs. DeSclafani allowed two hits in his last start against Chicago.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(9:38 pm ET) Tigers closer Joakim Soria picked up his fifth save in as many attempts on Monday, setting down the Yankees in order in the ninth inning.

Yankees' CC Sabathia takes hard-luck loss, falls to 0-3 on Monday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(9:35 pm ET) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia (0-3) allowed two runs on seven hits in eight innings on Monday but was outdueled by the Tigers' Alfredo Simon and was stuck with the loss. 

Sabathia, who faced the minimum through six innings, carried a shutout into the seventh but gave up RBI singles to J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes in the frame.

Sabathia struck out five and remains winless on the season. 

Sabathia gets credit for a complete game in the loss, the first in the American League this season.

He'll look again for his first win of 2015 Saturday at home against the Mets.


Tigers starting pitcher Alfredo Simon allows one run in 7 1/3 IP for win
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(9:32 pm ET) Tigers starting pitcher Alfredo Simon (3-0) allowed only a solo home run to Mark Teixeira in 7.1 innings of work Monday to outduel CC Sabathia and defeat the Yankees, 2-1.

Simon notched seven strikeouts and did not walk a man.

Simon this season has walked just one batter in 20 2/3 innings.

Simon returns to the mound on Saturday to face the Indians.
