Monday’s scores

Braves 7, Blue Jays 6 (F. 10) - I think Brian McCann's shoulder is OK. McCann hit two huge blasts on Tuesday, the second of which was the game-winner.

Rockies 2, Astros 1 - For the second day in a row, Houston and Colorado went into the ninth tied. This time, however, it was the Rockies who came through with the go-ahead run. Michael Cuddyer delivered the (eventually) game-winning single.

Nats 9, Orioles 3 - Nate wasn't great in his MLB debut, but he almost gave the Nats five innings. That's now four HRs allowed for Kevin Gausman in two starts.

Pirates 1, Tigers 0 (F. 11) - The stellar pitching in Pittsburgh continues. This time the pitching staff shut out Detroit's powerhouse lineup for 11 frames, rendering Rick Porcello's career day (11 Ks) fruitless.

Reds 8, Indians 2 - This one was never really as close as it seemed at times. Cincy rapped out 18 hits on the day. Jay Bruce was the only starting position player to reach base just once.

Rays 7, Marlins 6 - Miami actually managed to score six runs, but they couldn't hold the lead. Desmond Jennings came through with the walk-off single for the Rays. Seven straight losses for the Marlins.

Mets 2, Yankees 1 - Mariano Rivera blew his first save of the season, failing to retire a batter in a loss for the first time in his career(!). Matt Harvey and Hiroki Kuroda dueled for much of the game, combining for 17 Ks and no walks.

Phillies 3, Red Sox 1 - Cliff Lee was his masterful self, tossing eight innings of four-hit ball while walking none and fanning eight. Jonathan Papelbon earned his first save at Fenway since leaving the Sox two years ago.

Twins 6, Brewers 5 (F. 14) - Aaron Hicks followed a home-run robbery with a solo blast of his own, at least the second time this year he's done that. The Brewers bullpen put in eight shutout frames, but somehow that wasn't enough.

Cardinals 4, Royals 1 - Ervin Santana really limited his home runs in April, so now he's using May to catch up to teammate Jeremy Guthrie. With three HRs allowed Tuesday, Santana's now given up seven in his last two starts.

A's 6, Giants 3 - Mike Kickham's big-league debut didn't last long. The young southpaw lasted just 2⅓ innings, enough time to walk four and see four runs come in. Josh Donaldson is still on fire.

Dodgers 3, Angels 0 - Hyun-Jin Ryu delivered the best performance of his young MLB career, holding the Halos to just two hits for his first (of many) shutout(s). Joe Blanton broke FIP and K/BB again.

Padres 6, Mariners 1 - Brandon Maurer got knocked around again, while Edinson Volquez managed not to for once. Mark Kotsay (2 RBI) is still playing baseball!

Cubs @ White Sox - PPD
