Jean Segura went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored during the Brewers' 5-2 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

It hasn't been the start expected from Segura in the early going, but he has started to show signs of life, having registered multiple hits in four of his last 10 games. Prior to Wednesday's game he has had yet to him a home run with only two RBI, so clearly he has some making up to do, considering he more than doubled his totals in just one game.

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Padres on Wednesday.

It has been a tough start to the season for Davis, but he as now gone 6-for-15 over his last three games, with two homers and two RBI over that stretch. With added playing time following the injury to Logan Shafer, Davis remains a solid investment for those looking for both short-term and long-term outfield depth.

Francisco Rodriguez earned his league-leading ninth save after tossing a scoreless inning against the Padres on Wednesday. He walked on and struck out two but did not give up a hit.

Despite waiting until Opening Day to name their closer, the Brewers clearly made the right choice in picking K-Rod, who is now a perfect 9-for-9 in save chances in 2014. There was speculation that Jim Henderson would end up in the closer role once back up to 100 percent health, but with the way Rodriguez has been throwing, that isn't going to happen. He has yet to allow an earned-run through 12.0 innings with a 13.50 K/9, so what's not to love?

Kyle Lohse allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits with no walks and five strikeouts over five innings against the Padres.

The Brewers continued their early season dominance on Wednesday night with Lohse on the mound, finishing with his fourth victory in five starts. He has allowed only one earned run and taken the ball into the seventh inning in each of his last three starts and is now sitting on a four-game win streak. He will look for win No. 5 against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Tyson Ross was roughed up for five runs on nine hits and two walks with three strikeouts over six innings against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Ross nearly doubled his earned run total from his first four starts on Wednesday night in what was his worst outing of the season. He allowed a season-high nine hits in the contest, which was topped off by home runs from Jean Segura and Kris Davis. He will get a chance to bounce back against the Giants on Monday, a team in which he dominated last time around (0 ER, 4 H, 9 K in 8.0 IP).

Desmond Jennings went 3-for-5 with two runs scored, a walk and two stolen bases against the Twins on Wednesday.

Jennings is now 5-for-10 over his last two games with three runs scores and two stolen bases as he continues to be a solid source in both categories hitting near the top of the Rays lineup. He is currently sitting on a .302 average with one home run, five RBI, 10 runs and three stolen bases.

Jake Odorizzi lasted just 3.1 innings against the Twins on Wednesday after he gave up four runs on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts.

After pitching six shutout innings in his first start of the season, Odorizzi has now surrendered 14 earned runs over his last three starts, in which he has allowed eight or more base runners in each contest. He is now 1-2 with a 6.52 ERA and 1.71 WHIP through four starts, but is not in jeopardy of losing his job considering the injuries to the Rays starting rotation. However, if his struggles continue, those who still have hope will want to cut bait with the 24-year-old.

Chris Colabello went 2-for-6 with a home run, four RBI and a run scored against the Rays on Wednesday.

The month of April ha been one to forget for many power hitters, but not for Colabello. He is now sitting on a .346 average with three homers and 26 RBI through 78 at-bats as he continues to be a lasting force when in the batter's box. His RBI production is bound to cool off at some point, but if he continues to register multi-hit games (nine on the year), he is bound to come through with runner on base as the season progresses.

Glen Perkins earned his fourth save of the season after tossing a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout against the Rays on Wednesday.

After a rough start to the 2014 season, Perkins has started to settle down, and has not allowed an earned run over his last six appearances while going 3-for-3 in save chances. He is currently sitting on a 4.00 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, but are both bound to steadily decrease if he continues trending in the right direction.
