Hisashi Iwakuma gave up five runs on eight hits and a walk with three strikeouts over just four innings against the Red Sox on Wednesday.
While there's been no talk of a trip to the disabled list, the neck seems to still be an issue for Iwakuma as this was the worst start of the year and possibly of his MLB career. It was certainly the shortest. He's now allowed five runs in each of his last two outings and the Mariners are going to have to get another look at his neck to see what's what. Stay tuned as the team will likely do something with him in between starts.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
