Cabrera’s pinch-hit home run, Rosario’s two home runs lead Syndergaard, Mets to victory

The Mets completed their first home three-game sweep since September 2016. After enduring a gloomy week of gray, drizzly games, Sunday afternoon was finally a beautiful day for baseball. And the Mets entered the day with bright prospects for a sweep, as the Diamondbacks pushed back Zack Greinke for extra rest and called up Clay Buchholz to make his first start of the year against Noah Syndergaard. Buchholz pitched well, carrying a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the sixth, but the Mets struck quickly with three home runs in the sixth and seventh to seize the lead and take the game. ...

MLB trade rumors: Rival evaluators think Braves will pursue Mike Moustakas, per report

Moustakas is off to a strong start and the Royals seem likely to sell this summer. As we near the trade deadline it seems likely the Braves will look at all options to improve third base. In his weekly column, Nick Cafardo wrote that rival evaluators believe the Braves will pursue Mike Moustakas of the Royals. 3. Mike Moustakas, 3B, Royals — There’s a growing feeling among talent evaluators that Moustakas could become a Braves target. The Braves are currently using Jose Bautista at third. His defense has been fine, but he’s still not hitting like the Bautista of old. GM Alex...

With the latest injury to one of their outfielders, the Nationals decided to call 19-year-old prospect Juan Soto up today...

Smiles like a light house in the fog

The two happiest faces on the Mets gave the team a walk off victory on a foggy night. Wilmer Flores drove in Brandon Nimmo to walk the Mets off with a 5-4 victory over the Diamondbacks. Steven Matz was roughed up and the offense squandered several big opportunities, but the bullpen came through in a big way, tossing five innings of scoreless relief to keep the Mets in the game. Devin Mesoraco tied the game in the eighth with a home run, setting up the walk off fireworks in the ninth. Steven Matz worked around trouble nicely in the first, stranding Nick Ahmed at second after...

D-backs 1, Mets 4: Can’t spell “De La Rosa” without an L

Clay Buchholz’s debut went very well. There ends the good news. Record: 25-21. Pace: 88-84. Change on 2017: -1. The Diamondbacks are now 5-13 in the month of May. It’s probably telling that my reaction to this fact is, “We have won five games?” Even those seem a long time ago, with the team having dropped nine of the last ten. Our starters have precisely one W to their names after 18 attempts in the month of May, that being Matt Koch’s victory over Justin Verlander and the Astros on May 6. With nine games left, they are 1-7 and need to win three of those to avoid tying the...
