Michael Brantley went 2-for-3 and drove in the only run of the game in an interleague win over the Cubs on Wednesday.

He popped a looping single to center field to plate Rajai Davis in the third inning. He also walked in the ballgame and was thrown out trying to steal a base. Brantley has put together a very consistent campaign thus far, slashing .338/.374/.563 with seven home runs, 30 RBI and 23 runs scored in 37 games despite getting a late start to the season. He is likely to cool off a little bit eventually but he is one of the game's best pure hitters when he is fully healthy (which is rare), as evidenced by his .294 career batting average.

Cody Allen got the last four outs without allowing a run against the Cubs to earn a save on Wednesday.

He retired all four batters he faced in the ballgame to lock down the drama-free save. He now has seven saves and a 3.10 ERA with 21 strikeouts in 20 1/3 innings. He has a secure grip on the closer's job even with relief ace Andrew Miller lurking behind him.
May 24 - 1:18 AM

Guillermo Heredia went 2-for-4 with a double and scored the game's only run in Wednesday's 1-0 victory over the Athletics.

Heredia doubled to lead off the fourth inning, advanced to third on a fly ball and scored on a ball that was booted by Marcus Semien. He was the only Mariner to collect multiple his in the contest. Known primarily as a lefty-masher, Heredia hasn't discriminated this season, hitting everyone to the tune of .299/.442/.478 with two homers and seven RBI. He's an interesting fantasy commodity, especially in leagues that utilize daily lineups where he can be deployed only when in the M's lineup.

Adam Plutko tossed six innings of two-hit, shutout baseball to beat the Cubs 1-0 on Wednesday.

He outdueled Cubs ace Jon Lester in impressive fashion while making his second major league start. He had a no-hitter going through six innings, then allowed hits to the first two batters of the seventh before being relieved. He struck out four and walked four in the gem outing. He was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis to take Josh Tomlin's spot in the rotation. He made a spot start earlier this year. He had a 2.25 ERA in seven starts at Triple-A and will likely be a hot pickup in fantasy leagues, although he doesn't have the strikeout ability needed to create a ton of fantasy value.
May 24 - 1:14 AM

Ben Gamel drew a pair of walks and swiped his second base of the season as the Mariners squeaked past the Athletics on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old outfielder finished the night 0-for-2. He has been in a rut offensively this season, slashing just .225/.311/.338 with one homer, five RBI and two stolen bases in his first 90 plate appearances. There's talent here, but he's probably not worth using in shallow mixed leagues for the time being.
May 24 - 1:14 AM

Edwin Diaz lived up to the term closer on Wednesday, working a perfect ninth inning against the Athletics to preserve a 1-0 victory.

Diaz blew away all three hitters that he faced, needing just 13 pitches to mow down the Athletics. He picked up his American League-leading 17th save of the season for his efforts. Diaz has been one of the top closers in all of baseball this season, with a stellar 1.78 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 45/9 K/BB ratio in 25 1/3 innings.
