Teams w/2 runs scored: 1

Teams w/ 3 runs scored: 7

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia left Monday night's game with an ankle injury but should be back in the lineup on Wednesday according to Scott Lauber on Twitter.

Brewers outfielder Corey Hart went 3-4 with 3 HRs and 7 RBIs on Monday night. The home runs were the first 3 of the season for him. He has struggled since coming off the DL, and is now hitting .263-.306-463 with 3 HRs and 8 RBIs in 80 at bats.

Hart's teammate Yovani Gallardo had his best start of the season, going 7 strong innings, giving up just one run on 5 hits and striking out 9. The win was Gallardo's 6th of the season and lowered his ERA to 4.35.

More Roundup after the jump:

Phillies second baseman Chase Utley started his first game of the season on Monday, and went 0-5 in the Phillies 10-3 win over the Reds.

Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins went 2-5 with a HR, 2 runs and 3 RBIs on Monday. He is hitting .266-.344-.367 with 3 HRs, 15 RBIs and 9 SBs. Fantasy owners have to be happy with the 9 SBs from RollinS.

Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista went 1-3 with a HR, 2 walks and 2 runs scored in the Blue Jays win over the Yankees. Bautista now has 19 HRs on the season, and like I wrote last week, 50 HRs is not inconceivable this season.

Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is on fire right now. He went 3-4 with a HR and 2 RBIs on Monday night. He is now hitting .312-.371-.548 with 10 HRs and 34 RBIs. Tulo who?

Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford went 2-4 with a HR and 2 runs scored on Monday night. He continues to struggle this year and the two hits on Monday raised his triple slash line to just .215-.249-.298. I ranked Crawford as my #1 fantasy outfielder this year, and as each day goes by, that is looking more and more like a terrible call. Lucky for me today is May 24th.

Clayton Kershaw held the Astros to one run on 4 hits, 2 walks and 7 strikeouts, but his bullpen, namely Kenley Jansen, couldn't hold the lead in the 9th inning. Kershaw is 5-3 with a solid 2.96 ERA and 1.20 WHIP, and he has a 77-23 K/BB rate.

Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen opened the 9th with a strikeout and was one strike away from striking out Bill Hall, but Hall hit an 0-2 pitch to left for a single. Jansen then struck out the next batter, but then proceeded to give up the lead, by giving up 3 runs on 3 hits, a walk, a HBP and 2 strikeouts The Dodgers bullpen is still a mess, and no one knows who will get the next save opportunity.

Athletics starter Josh Outman went 7 innings in his first start of the year, giving up one run on 5 hits, 3 walks and 2 strikeouts. He induced 9 swinging strikes and 9 ground balls in the outing which saw him throw first pitche strikes to 19 of the 28 batters he faced. He pitches in Oakland's pitchers park, so he should be added in AL only and mixed leagues.
