ELIAS: Aaron Judge's 9 homers are the most in April in Yankees history by a player 25 or younger (he turned 25 on Wednesday).

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

This surely a short-term membership for San Diego's Ryan Schimpf, but when he homered tonight, he joined a list that includes Babe Ruth and Carlos Zambrano. According to baseball-reference.com, that trio and five others are the only ones to hit six homers in a season with zero doubles and zero triples. Six of Schimpf's nine hits so far have been homers. It's only April of course but, still, it'll be a little sad when Schimpf hits his first two- or three-bagger. He's in such rarefied company.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Ryan Schimpf continues to mash on the road. The Padres infielder launched a 423-foot long ball to center in the fifth inning against the Giants on Friday.

Yankees DH Matt Holliday hit his first walk-off home run in pinstripes on Friday against the Orioles, a 414-foot shot to center.

Albert Pujols' homer in the eighth inning Friday vs. the Rangers was his 30th go-ahead home run in the eighth inning or later, and the 594th of his career.

Kris Bryant simply gave a smile when asked about 2 check swing 3rd strikes that went against him without the help of the first base umpire on either one. He said of the two he definitely felt he didn't swing on the first one.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Twice was nice for Ryan Zimmerman on Friday vs. the Mets. The Nationals 1B recorded the 17th multi-homer game of his career with long balls in the second and eighth innings.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Red Sox 5, Cubs 4: Craig Kimbrel gets the save, but Fernando Abad recorded the game's two biggest outs, striking out Matt Szczur and Kyle Schwarber with the tying and go-ahead runs on base in eighth inning. Theo Epstein called it a "family reunion," given the many Cubs personnel with Red Sox ties who returned to Fenway Park. But the Sox spoiled the party, scoring five runs in first inning vs. Jake Arrieta.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Yankees 2B Starlin Castro launched a 412-foot homer to left in the ninth inning Friday vs. the Orioles, his third game-tying home run in the ninth inning or later.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs lost 5-4 to the Red Sox after giving up 5 runs in the first inning raising their ERA in the opening inning to 9.82 on the season. Jake Arrieta wasn't sharp giving up 10 hits and 3 walks in just 4.2 innings though he managed not to give up any runs after the first. The Cubs actually led 1-0 after Kris Bryant homered but they were 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position while Kyle Schwarber struck out 4 times, Jason Heyward 3 times.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Nationals lost more than a game. In the 9th inning of their 7-5 loss to the Mets, center fielder and leadoff man Adam Eaton had to be carried off the field after appearing to roll his ankle at first base on infield single. Acquired from the White Sox in a December blockbuster trade, Eaton (.291 avg, .392 obp) has been a major spark for the first-place Nats.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Adam Eaton just got carried off the field at suddenly silent Nats Park. He reached on an infield single to load the bases in the top of the 9th against the Mets, but appeared to roll his left ankle on a bang-bang play.
