The Red Sox have never beaten Nathan Eovaldi, tonight's Yankees starter, in three career starts. Eovaldi, who threw 7 shutout innings against the Rangers in Texas last Monday, has also won both his starts at Fenway, with 3.86 ERA. Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez have homered off him and David Ortiz has three singles in six at-bats.

Kershaw does it all! He throws a complete game shutout and drives in the only run in Dodgers' 1-0 win over Padres.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus was asked if he could definitively say pitcher Mike Pelfrey will make his next start. Said he had not talked to anyone since coming off the field, but: "at this point, there's not reason to think he wouldn't." Ausmus did reiterate that Pelfrey's two-year, $16 million contract will not be a factor for his consideration when assessing the situation: "I don't make a lineup out because a guy makes money. I make a lineup out because I believe he can help us win, or I believe he's our best option at the particular position."

The Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw has nine career games of 10 strikeouts with no walks, the most in baseball since the start of 2014. Through seven innings Sunday, he has exactly 10 strikeouts and no walks. The Dodgers hold a slim 1-0 lead over the Padres.

Carlos Martinez said he will be able to maintain his focus despite having to deal with a civil lawsuit filed against him by a woman in a Miami court last week. Martinez also was dealing with flu-like symptoms and didn't know he would be able to make Sunday's start until he woke up and called manager Mike Matheny to tell him he was a go. Here he talks about Sunday's start through interpreter (and catcher) Brayan Pena:

With reliever Carson Smith likely to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Red Sox haven't ruled out carrying 13 pitchers in the short term. That could spell a return to Triple-A for infielder Marco Hernandez.

Phillies sweep the Indians right after sweeping the Nationals. What a fun and unexpected spring. The pitching has been outstanding.

The Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez flew out to the warning track in the sixth inning, making him 0-for-20 on the current homestand. The Dodgers have lost six consecutive home games for the first time in five years, but lead the Padres 1-0 on Sunday.

Good pitching still beats good hitting: The Cardinals, who entered the weekend as MLB's highest scoring team (6.23 runs/game), got swept and were outscored 17-6 by the Nationals, who came in with the best ERA in baseball (2.35).
