The Fernando Rodney Experience has never been an easy ride for those without strong stomachs, but Diamondbacks fans may not have to suffer through many more after the Padres scored five runs off him in the ninth, including Ryan Schimpf's go-ahead three-run homer. With an 11.00 ERA, Rodney should be replaced as closer.

Mike Morse looked finished as a major leaguer after just eight at-bats last year with the Pirates. But the Giants have so many injuries in the outfield that he was called up on Wednesday and since this is baseball of course he hit a pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning to tie the Dodgers.

Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo gave one just enough pop to send it past right field in the eighth inning for his fifth homer of the season.

DH Nelson Cruz has a thing for hitting long balls off Anibal Sanchez. Cruz hit his third homer off the Tigers pitcher on Wednesday.

The Orioles got a fifth straight quality start from Dylan Bundy, a Little League homer from Seth Smith, and a two-run 11th inning rally that ended with a walk-off walk to beat the Rays 5-4. At 14-6, B'more boasts the best record in the AL.

Watch Jon Lester discuss his outing on Wednesday where he gave up 10 hits and 5 earned runs. Despite those numbers he wasn't displeased with how he threw the ball.

Aaron Judge was given the ball of his 2-run shot tonight at Fenway Park. Today was also Judge's 25th birthday.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Another great outing for James Paxton, with seven scoreless innings as the re-tooled Mariners -- eight transactions today -- shut out the Tigers. That's four scoreless starts in five outings, two more than any other starter. Most scoreless starts since 1995: Adam Wainwright had 12 in 2014 for the Cardinals.

The Cubs dropped the finale to the Pirates on Wednesday, 6-5, after getting down 5-1 early, Jon Lester gave up 10 hits including two home runs as he wasn't very sharp going 5.2 innings. The Cubs left 13 on base as they had chances throughout the night. Anthony Rizzo homered late in the contest but it wasn't enough as the Cubs drop to 4-2 on their road trip.

If the Yankees were to have scripted their first game of the season at Fenway, they very well might have put together a game in which Luis Severino, Aaron Judge and Greg Bird all starred. Severino threw seven scoreless. Judge hit a two-run homer and made a great catch. Bird had an RBI single. Meanwhile, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman combined to do enough to preserve a 3-1 win over Boston.

Yankees 3, Red Sox 1: Welcome to the rivalry, Aaron Judge. In his first game ever at Fenway Park, the Yankees' rookie slugger clocked a homer against reigning Cy Young winner Rick Porcello and dove into the stands to catch a foul ball. Red Sox muster only three hits against Pedro Martinez protege Luis Severino and lose for fourth time in six games.

Anthony Rizzo now has 20 career home runs against the Pirates tying the Reds for most against any opponent. (ESPN Stats) He hit 18, 19 and 20 over the weekend in Cincinnati making it four long balls in his last 6 games.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Aroldis Chapman, who has not allowed a run in 7 appearances this season (6.1IP, 3H, 2BB, 9K), warms up in the bullpen. Yankees lead the Red Sox 3-0, top of the 9th inning.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The lessons of Pedro Martinez continue to payoff for the Yankees Luis Severino. Severino, who worked with the former Red Sox great this winter in the Dominican, threw seven scoreless innings, allowing six hits, striking out six and walking two. He left with the Yankees up, 3-0, in the eighth.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Jon Lester allowed at least five runs in consecutive starts for the third time since joining the Cubs after going 5.2 innings on Wednesday against the Pirates. He allowed 10 hits and 5 earned runs including two home runs. That makes 19 hits off Lester in his last two starts. His ERA is 3.68.
