Edwin Encarnacion homered for the third straight game including 2 last night, giving him 200 for his career. His 3-4 performance with 3 RBI sparked the Blue Jays 12-6 drubbing of the Phillies.

Dallas Keuchel ended the Tigers winning streak by pitching into the 8th inning. He finished with 7 2/3 innings and 2 earned runs and no walks, giving Houston a rare win, 6-2.

Anthony Rizzo got on base 4 times, homered, doubled, drove in a pair and helped the Cubs top the White Sox, 12-5.

Ryan Volgelsong threw 7 1/3 innings, giving up just 5 hits and 1 earned run. He did not get the decision but he set up the Giants extra innings victory in Los Angeles, 3-1.

They owned baseball on May.08, 2014.

Earning 1/2 WOBs in losing efforts.

Ian Kennedy did a little of everything. He kept the Marlins hitless into the 5th, he struckout 12 and homered for the only Padres run. San Diego’s bats, defense and bullpen would betray him as the Marlins won in extra innings, 3-1.

Nolan Arenado extended his hitting streak to a Rockies franchise record 28 games. Their bats finally cooled, however, as Texas won 5-0.

Alexei Ramirez collected 4 hits and scored twice. But the White Sox would lose the all Chicago game to the Cubs, 12-5.
