C.J. Cron - DH - Rays

C.J. Cron went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

With one run already having crossed the plate in the second, Cron came through with a two-run double off Andrew Cashner to boost the Rays to a 5-0 advantage. They would sail through the rest of the contest without issue. After a hot April in which he cracked seven home runs and drove in 19 runs, Cron's cooled off in May, but not to a severe degree. Comparing the slash-lines, he hit .281/.327/.552 with the seven home runs and 19 RBI across 23 contests for the month of April, while entering action on Saturday, he was working to a .261/.327/.432 triple slash with four home runs and nine RBI in 22 May games with about a week remaining in the month.
May 26 - 7:40 PM

Bud Norris tossed a three-up, three-down ninth inning to earn a save against the Pirates on Saturday.

He got the first two batters to pop out and then whiffed Gregory Polanco for the final out of the ballgame. He now has 10 saves with a 2.59 ERA on the season. He has a firm grip on the Cardinals' closer job with rookie Jordan Hicks providing his only distant competition.
May 26 - 7:37 PM

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

Ramos came up with an RBI double off Andrew Cashner in the first inning, his sixth two-bagger of the campaign. He was clipped by a foul ball on his left hand this past Tuesday, but after receiving a day off, has come back without apparent physical issue. The backstop is slashing .305/.344/.464 with six home runs and 25 RBI over the course of 151 at-bats this season. He's posted multi-hit efforts in two of his last three games.
May 26 - 7:36 PM

Jack Flaherty yielded just one run over six innings to earn a win over the Pirates on Saturday.

Starling Marte touched him up for a solo tater but that was the only blemish on his afternoon. He struck out four batters while allowing four hits and two walks in the quality start. He improves to 2-1 with a 2.15 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in five starts. The rookie has an excellent 31:9 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 29 1/3 innings.
May 26 - 7:33 PM

Colin Moran went 2-for-4 as his team fell to the Cardinals on Saturday.

Both hits were singles and neither helped produce a run. The rest of the Pirates combined for just four hits against Jack Flaherty and company. Moran came to the Pirates in the Gerrit Cole trade with the Astros over the winter. The rookie is getting steady playing time at third base. He has a .266 batting average with four home runs and 22 RBI in 160 plate appearances.
May 26 - 7:27 PM

Rays optioned LHP Anthony Banda to Triple-A Durham.

The option came a few minutes after Banda picked up his first victory of the season, holding the Orioles to one run while striking out seven over 6 1/3 innings. The Rays are resorting to an entirely unconventional pitching philosophy this year, so Banda's 3.68 ERA and 1.02 WHIP through three appearances clearly means less than having a fresh arm for Sunday. Banda should be back up before long.
