Matt Harvey was handed a no-decision Friday against the Nationals after allowing one run over 7 2/3 innings.

Harvey was dominant for most of the night, retiring the first 16 batters he faced before Jose Lobaton broke things up with a one-out single in the top of the sixth. He held the Nationals scoreless until a game-tying RBI single from Yunel Escobar with two outs in the eighth, which turned out to be his final batter of the night. While he couldn't finish it off, it was another impressive start. He'll bring a 3.05 ERA into a start against the Marlins on the road next week.

Welington Castillo belted a game-winning solo home run in the 10th inning on Friday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 6-4 victory over the Astros.

Castillo victimized Pat Neshek for the go-ahead blast, which was immediately followed by a solo shot off the bat of teammate Jake Lamb. Castillo finished the night 3-for-5 and scored three runs. He has been a tremendous addition to the Diamondbacks, hitting .293 (34-for-116) with nine homers and 20 RBI in just 36 games.
Aug 1 - 12:04 AM

Gio Gonzalez gave up one run in just 4 2/3 innings Friday against the Mets.

Things could have been much worse, as Gonzalez allowed four hits and four walks while throwing just 59 out of 105 pitches for strikes. However, the Mets weren't able to cash in on their opportunities. Gonzalez struck out six in the no-decision and now owns a 3.75 ERA over 19 starts this season. He'll square off against the Diamondbacks at home next time out.

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 0-for-4 with a walk and two strikeouts against the Nationals on Friday in his return from the disabled list.

D'Arnaud had been sidelined since June 20 with a sprained left elbow. The Mets bolstered their lineup Friday by acquiring Yoenis Cespedes from the Tigers, but getting their catcher back is another big plus for their offense.
Aug 1 - 12:03 AM

Bryce Harper was ejected from Friday's game against the Mets in the 11th inning for arguing balls and strikes.

Jerry Meals' strike zone was questionable, but Harper pushed things too far and got himself kicked out of the game. It forced the Nationals to use Dan Uggla at first base and Ryan Zimmerman in the outfield. Harper went 0-for-5 with a strikeout before exiting.
Aug 1 - 12:03 AM

Yunel Escobar drove in the Nationals' only run of the night Friday against the Mets.

His eighth-inning single off Matt Harvey tied the game, but the Mets eventually won in extras. Escobar went 1-for-5 on the night and has a .312/.360/.410 batting line on the year.
Aug 1 - 12:02 AM

Rubby De La Rosa struggled in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday, allowing four runs on eight hits over his six frames.

De La Rosa punched out four on the night while walking only one. All of the damage against him came in the fifth inning, highlighted by a three-run blast off the bat of catcher Jason Castro. He'll look to improve upon a 4.59 ERA and 1.29 WHIP when he takes the hill against the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
Aug 1 - 12:00 AM

Jason Castro blasted a three-run home run on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Astros to victory over the visiting Diamondbacks.

Castro's towering blast came off Diamondbacks starter Rubby De La Rosa as part of a four-run fourth inning. Unfortunately, that would wind up being the extent of the Astros offense in the ballgame as they would fall in 10 innings. It's the second straight day that the hard-hitting backstop has gone deep, and he's now hitting .216/.282/.381 with nine homers and 25 RBI on the season.
