Alexi Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 18 games after going 1-for-3 in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Red Sox.

The 18-game hit streak is the longest current streak in baseball. Ramirez is now batting .415 on the season which is tops among American League hitters.

Erik Johnson struck out a career-high nine batters in the no-decision Tuesday as he allowed one run on three hits, including a home run, while walking two over 6.2 innings.

An impressive regardless, but even more so as it came in about 30 or degree weather against a potent Red Sox lineup and considering Johnson had a 9.58 ERA through his two previous starts of the season. The home run was the first one Johnson allowed this season after allowing five in five starts last season. Johnson will look to build upon this outing in his next start on Sunday in Texas against the Rangers.

Adam Dunn went 1-for-1 with a solo-home run and three walks to help lead the White Sox to their 4th win in five games.

The home run was Dunn's first since going yard in back-to-back games to start the season. Dunn extended his current hit streak to four games and is batting .294 on the season with a .468 OBP (11 walks in 11 games) making him worth of a pickup while he is hot.

Jake Peavy struck out eight in the no-decision as he allowed on run on three hits, a home run, and four walks over six innings as the Red Sox fell to the White Sox 2-1 Tuesday night.

Peavy has yet to record a decision through his first three starts despite having an ERA of just 1.93. Peavy has been pretty fortunate thus far considering he has allowed a home run in each of his starts while walking a total of 10 batters. Peavy will take the mound again on Sunday versus the Orioles.

Daniel Nava knocked in the Red Sox only run of the night Tuesday on his only hit in three at-bats with a solo-home run.

Nava raised his average to whooping .152 after hitting his second home run of the season (second in his last four games), so until he can prove to be more consistent in a productive way he is best left on waivers in mixed leagues.

Phil Hughes allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk but did strike out seven over five innings of the loss to the Jays Tuesday.

So much for the move to a more spacious home ballpark helping Hughes as he has allowed eight runs over his two home starts and has an ERA of 7.20 through his first three starts of the season.

Trevor Plouffe's lone hit of Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Jays was a solo-home run off of Sergio Santos in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The home run was Plouffe's first of the season and he is now batting .314 on the season with nine RBI, 10 runs scored, and nine walks to nine strikeouts (.426 OBP). Expect Plouffe's home run totals to increase as the weather improves as he and the Twins had played all their games in chilly Mid-West temperatures to start the season (7 at home and 3 each in Cleveland and in Chicago versus the White Sox).

The Mets blasted Bronson Arroyo to the tune of nine runs on 10 hits, a home run, a walk, while striking out just one batter over 3.1 innings Tuesday night to fall to 1-1 on the season.

Arroyo's (1-1) atrocious start to the season went from bad to worse as he has now allowed four home runs through his first three starts and took his ERA from 4.82 to 9.95 after Tuesday's loss, surprisingly his only one of the season. The 37-year old's next start is scheduled for Monday on the road against the Cubs.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis homered in his spot start Tuesday night for the injured Juan Lagares finishing the night 3-for-5 with three RBI, and a run scored to power the Mets past the DBacks.

Good for Niewenhuis to make the most of his opportunity to start, but it will likely be short lived as Chris Young is expected to rejoin the team this weekend.

Jenrry Mejia shut out the DBacks for five innings Tuesday night allowing just two hits and two walks with three strikeouts on his way to his second victory of the season.

Mejia reportedly has "one hell of a blister," according to Mets manager Tyler Collins, It's a big concern, but feels Mejia's next start is still possible.
