Final: Rays 6, Angels 1
Logan Forsythe hit a 2-run shot in the first and that was all the cushion Chris Archer needed, going 8 innings and giving up 6 hits and 1 earned while tying the Rays' franchise record for K's with James Shields (15 strikeouts). Box score
Pollock puts one in the pool
The Braves were hesitant to pitch to Paul Goldschmidt, and you can't blame them. But an intentional walk put Goldy on for A.J. Pollock, and he turned on one and sent it over the wall to give the Diamondbacks a 7-6 lead. Follow live
Top hitting prospects keep pace

Gallo: 'Pretty nervous' for debut
"I could barely eat. I had to pretty much force food down my throat," Joey Gallo said after he finished his MLB debut 3-for-4 with 4 RBIs and a HR. "I'm just real excited that I got the first game out of the way. And I did pretty good in it."
Weird bit of pitching synergy
On Monday, Padres SP Andrew Cashner became the first pitcher in the modern era to allow 10+ hits and issue 10+ K's without lasting 5 innings. Amazingly, Mets SP Noah Syndergaard matched Cashner on Tuesday, as New York trails the Padres 7-2 (via Elias). Follow live

Pederson impressive early in his career
John Kruk: "You wonder how much better he would be this year, if that's possible, if he got to play some last year with that crowded Dodgers outfield because this young man is a difference-maker."
McCutchen picks up where Gallo left off
Texas' Joey Gallo was unable to hit for the cycle in his MLB debut -- a shame -- but Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen's dreams are still alive. He's a HR short after an RBI double gave the Pirates a 7-4 lead over the Giants in the top of the 6th. Follow live
