NY Mets :

  • Home runs sink Harvey, Mets in DC May 25, 2016
    It was a rematch between two power pitchers: Stephen Strasburg vs. Matt Harvey. But just like last week against the Mets, it went the Nationals' way as Washington won, 7-4, at Nationals Park on Tuesday night. The Nationals, who hit a season-high five home runs, increased their lead over the Mets in the National League East to 1 1/2 games.

  • Mets to discuss when Harvey will start next May 25, 2016
    The ingredients for Matt Harvey's renaissance were all in place early Tuesday evening and, for a fleeting few moments, Harvey's nightmare narrative seemed ready to dissolve. Amid a gorgeous night at Nationals Park, Harvey was not quite Harvey. But he was better, much better, well on his way.

  • Matz to face Nats for first time in afternoon tilt May 25, 2016
    At first glance, the probables listed for Wednesday afternoon's season finale -- right-hander Tanner Roark for Washington vs. Mets left-hander Steven Matz - don't appear to have that same glitter, the same sparkle, the same appeal. Which could have more to do with perception than reality.

    Joe DiMaggio amassed a 56-game hitting streak 75 years ago. Top that in Beat the Streak, and $5.6 million is yours.
  • Flores plays first base in first rehab game May 25, 2016
    One possible first-base solution for the Mets inched closer to a return on Tuesday, when Wilmer Flores began a Minor League rehab assignment with Double-A Binghamton. Working his way back from a strained left hamstring, Flores played seven innings at first base, finishing 2-for-3.

  • Mets' power bats back Bartolo in win vs. Nats May 24, 2016
    In a reversal of a meeting between the same two pitchers last week, the Mets hammered left-hander Gio Gonzalez and the Nationals and rode a strong start from Bartolo Colon to a 7-1 victory at Nationals Park on Monday night. New York pulled to within a half-game of Washington in the National League East with the win.

  • Mets heavy on sluggers even without Duda May 24, 2016
    Depth is not necessarily linear. For example: the Mets lost a first baseman on Monday, placing Lucas Duda on the disabled list for the foreseeable future. As assistant general manager John Ricco put it, "We're not going to be able to replace Lucas internally. We're losing one of our better players. It's not like we have another Lucas Duda […]

  • Legend of Bartolo grows larger with age May 24, 2016
    Baseball's oldest player turns 43 today, and Bartolo Colon's career would be enthralling enough if sheer longevity were his only calling card. But of course, Big Bart -- or Big Sexy, if you prefer -- has given us so much more.

  • Knight looking forward to 1986 Mets reunion May 24, 2016
    Ray Knight has a lot of fond memories of the 1986 Mets, who won the World Series in seven games over the Red Sox. Knight was the everyday third baseman for New York that year, and he finds it hard to believe that he won the World Series MVP 30 years ago this October.

NY Yankees:

  • Rotation, Beltran spark Yankees' turnaround May 25, 2016
    With Tuesday night's 6-0 win over the Blue Jays, the Yankees are 22-22, .500 for the first time since April 14, when a loss to these very same Blue Jays knocked them to 4-4. Since that loss, the Yankees fell far, dropping as far as eight games below .500 on May 5. But the Yankees have turned everything around, winning 13 of their past 18 -- including si […]

  • Yankees ask Nova to keep Jays in check May 25, 2016
    Toronto won eight times on the road against the Yankees last season, and 13 times overall, which were both single-season highs. It also marked the first time the Blue Jays won a season series in New York since 2003. That was last year, though, and after winning the series opener on Tuesday night, the Yankees will look to reverse the recent trend when right-h […]

  • Eovaldi, Yankees 2-hit Blue Jays, return to .500 May 25, 2016
    Carlos Beltran and Nathan Eovaldi continued their recent hot streaks, while the Yankees' bullpen was stingy as usual as the Yanks beat the Blue Jays, 6-0, and pulled back to .500 for the first time since April 14.

  • A-Rod has 2 hits at Double-A, reports no setbacks May 25, 2016
    Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez saw his first game action on Tuesday night since being placed on the disabled list on May 3 with a strained right hamstring. The 14-time All-Star began a rehab assignment with Double-A Trenton at ARM & HAMMER Park and went 2-for-4 with an RBI as the team's designated hitter against the New Hampshire Fisher Ca […]

  • Severino to rehab at Tampa; 6-man rotation coming? May 24, 2016
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced last Sunday that Luis Severino, who is on the disabled list with a right triceps strain, will be making a rehab start in the Minors this coming Sunday, but he wasn't quite sure where.

  • Timely knock by DiMaggio gives Yanks win May 24, 2016
    Saturday afternoon's 7 to 6 victory over the visiting Boston Red Sox accomplished quite a few goals for the local nine. The Yankees won their fourth game in the last five days and have not lost over that span of games.

  • Yanks claim righty Somsen, send him to Triple-A May 24, 2016
    The Yankees claimed right-hander Layne Somsen off waivers from the Reds on Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

  • Steady rotation key to Yankees' winning streak May 23, 2016
    No one has confused this Yankees rotation with some of the more dominant in franchise history, but their stellar performance during a seven-game road trip has produced the team's longest winning streak of the season, allowing the club to return home just a game under .500 at 21-22.

Philadelphia Phillies :

  • Group of Phillies among top prospect performers May 25, 2016
    Rhys Hoskins has hit his share of home runs this season, but none have been bigger than the walk-off grand slam he hit Tuesday to lead Double-A Reading past Erie, 11-9. Hoskins was among the top prospect performers on Tuesday.

  • Hellickson strong against 'dangerous' Tigers May 25, 2016

  • Nola, Sanchez set to square off in series finale May 25, 2016
    Winless in the month of May, the Tigers' Anibal Sanchez (3-5, 6.23 ERA) has struggled in the sixth inning this season. He tries to shake his sixth-inning woes Wednesday when the Tigers host the Phillies in the finale of a three-game series.

  • Hellickson hangs tough, but Phils fall short May 25, 2016
    Justin Verlander worked through the Phillies for eight scoreless innings, and Miguel Cabrera doubled in one run and drove in another -- continuing his offensive awakening in May -- as Detroit captured its eighth win in nine games with a 3-1 win over the Phillies on Tuesday night at Comerica Park. The win moved Detroit (23-22) over .500 for the first time sin […]

  • Phillies unable to outslug Tigers May 24, 2016
    On a night when the Tigers and Phillies combined for six solo home runs, two of them from Miguel Cabrera, Detroit pulled ahead on a Victor Martinez seventh-inning single that scored Cabrera for a 5-4 victory Monday at Comerica Park.

  • Herrera delivers early, often, but benched late May 24, 2016
    Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera led off Monday's game against the Tigers with a 14-pitch at-bat against Mike Pelfrey, which ended with a base hit. He went on to get hits in his next two trips to the plate, starting his night 3-for-3. But Herrera's solid start to the night turned sour when he didn't hustle down the line on a ground ball […]

  • Joseph starts at 1B, homers; Howard scuffles May 24, 2016
    Tommy Joseph helped his case for the Phillies' starting first-base job on Monday night. The rookie went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in the Phillies' 5-4 loss to the Tigers.
