Craig Kimbrel fired 1 2/3 innings against the Pirates on Thursday to pick up a save.

It's the first time that Kimbrel has ever finished a five-out save in the regular season. It's also the 350th save of his MLB career, which is an impressive number. Kimbrel came in to fix Daniel Winkler's mess, as the right-hander walked the bases loaded while throwing just 3-of-15 pitches for strikes. The 32-year-old struck out three, and landed 16-of-22 pitches for strikes. It's very early, but fantasy managers have to be happy with how Kimbrel has looked in 2021.

Walkoff hit by pitch, off the old elbow guard on a pitch in the zone...

EDIT: I'll take off the double tweet. Ha, the game ended hours before and we post the exact same highlight within a minute of each other.

Lance Lynn turned in his second career shutout and struck out 11 in a dominant performance Thursday against the Royals.

The Royals did plenty of hacking, taking 60 swings at his 111 pitches, but they managed just five singles and no extra-base hits. They didn't work any walks. Lynn also went without allowing an earned run in his first start, though he gave up a pair of unearned runs and lasted only 4 2/3 innings then. Lynn will surely give up his share of homers and probably won't have a brilliant ERA in the end, but as far as innings and wins this year, there are few better bets.

Elbow guards... Can't believe there hasn't been any type of restrictions added for those, since they've been getting abused since the Biggio days (and before).

Forgot about this game, until i saw it mentioned on Reddit. 2 outs, 2 strikes in the 9th.
