T he St. Louis Cardinals gave pitcher Carlos Martinez permission to leave the team on Friday in order to attend to a personal matter that arose after a civil lawsuit was filed against him in South Florida, general manager John Mozeliak said. "We are just learning of this matter. I was notified by Carlos' agent the other night," Mozeliak said on Saturday. "We will not be in a position to act until we have more information." Martinez, who is 4-0 with a 1.93 ERA, was at the stadium Saturday, but not in the clubhouse during the period the media was allowed in. The lawsuit, filed in a Miami district court, will not affect Martinez's ability to make his scheduled start on Sunday, according to a source.

Dodgers are down but not out -- yet

The offense is struggling and the bullpen isn't doing much better. The result? L.A. has lost five straight at home -- its longest home losing streak since May 2013. Still tied for first in NL West

Felix Hernandez's crazy April: There have been 2 games this year in which a team got one hit but still won. Felix has been the winning pitcher & losing pitcher in those 2 games. So how often since 1900 has any pitcher done that (in a one-hitter or no-hitter) in the same year? The answer, from the Elias Sports Bureau: Never!
