Julio Teheran worked 5.1 innings in Sunday’s 7-3 loss to the Marlins, giving up three runs on five hits and three walks while recording three strikeouts.
After giving up one run or less in each of his previous six outings, Teheran made a mistake in the top of the sixth inning Sunday afternoon that cost him two runs with one swing of the bat by Marlins’ second baseman Derek Dietrich. Prior to that home run, Teheran had the held the Marlins to just a single run over five innings and appeared to be headed toward another strong stat line. The Atlanta ace may hold a 1-5 record on the year, but that is in no way indicative of how he has performed. Through 11 starts, Teheran has put up an excellent 2.77 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 across 68.1 innings. He will take the mound opposite Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers on Friday night.
Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and three runs scored in Sunday’s 7-3 win over the Braves.
Ozuna’s sensational month at the plate continued Sunday afternoon, as he now has a hit in 26-of-27 games and 15 multi-hit performances in May. Overall this month, the 25-year-old outfielder is batting .434 with seven home runs, eight doubles, 17 RBI and 25 runs scored across 113 plate appearances. Suffice it to say, Ozuna is going to have plenty to say about the N.L. Player of the Month award. The Marlins will face lefty Jeff Locke on Monday evening. Ozuna is 4-for-11 with two doubles against the Pirates’ hurler.
Carlos Santana went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in the Indians win against the Orioles Sunday.
For someone who does not strike out a whole lot, and walks at a very respectable rate, one would expect to see a batting average higher than .231. He owns just a 14.3% line drive, which is the largest reason why. Still, when he does make contact it is usually in the form of an extra base hit at least. Sadly, this seems to be who Santana is but on the bright side he does own a .345 OBP.
