Zack Cozart reached base three times Sunday in the Angels’ loss to the Yankees.

He led off the game with a single off Masahiro Tanaka, walked in the third, then drew another free pass in the eighth. Cozart isn’t performing at the All-Star level he played at last year in Cincinnati, but he’s shown signs of life with six hits and three walks over his last four outings.

Jesus Aguilar homered in his second straight game and drove in four runs to help the Brewers outlast the Mets 8-7 on Sunday.

Aguilar knocked an RBI single in the first inning before turning on an inside pitch for a three-run jack in the third. The homer was his second in as many games and his ninth on the year, giving him 30 RBI and 25 runs scored. Many were late to the 27-year-old's coming out party, but it's in full swing -- through Sunday, Aguilar is hitting .325/.390/.595 overall. Miraculously still available in 42 percent of Yahoo leagues, that number should be lower given what he's done through the season's first two months.

Andrelton Simmons launched a solo home run Sunday in the Angels’ loss to New York.

Simmons scored L.A.’s only run of the afternoon on a sixth-inning solo blast off right-hander Masahiro Tanaka. That was his second hit of the day after leading off the fourth with a single to center field. The slick-fielding shortstop now sports a robust .332 average (third-highest in the American League) to go with four homers, five steals, 31 RBI and 31 runs scored. Sunday extended his hitting streak to five games.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI in a loss to the Brewers on Sunday.

Cabrera capped a four-run second inning with an RBI single before hitting a frozen rope over the left field boards in the seventh inning for his eighth homer of the year. Cabrera actually left Saturday's one-sided affair after tweaking his knee but it clearly wasn't a big deal, as he was back in there a day later. That's good news for the Mets and fantasy owners, with the 32-year-old hitting a robust .316/.356/.532 in 48 games this year.

Corey Knebel gave up a solo home run before slamming the door on the Mets Sunday, earning his fourth save of the season.

Knebel gave up a solo shot to pinch-hitter Devin Mesoraco to lead off the inning, making it a one-run game, and a one-out walk followed by a two-out steal put the tying run in scoring position for Michael Conforto. But Knebel fanned Conforto, his second strikeout of the inning, to end the threat and the game. Knebel has been a little shaky his last two times out but it hasn't cost the Brewers, and there's no reason to think his job is in jeopardy until it's said publicly by manager Craig Counsell.

Wilmer Flores (back) will head back to New York for further evaluation on his injured back.

The back issue forced Flores to leave Sunday's game against the Brewers, and the fact that he's traveling back to New York could indicate that a trip to the disabled list is upcoming. The Mets begin a four-game series against the Braves in Atlanta on Monday.
May 27 - 5:31 PM

Pablo Sandoval is starting at second base for the first time in his big league career on Sunday against the Cubs.

Sandoval has logged 2/3 of an inning in his career at the position, that came with the Red Sox last season. The Giants will continue to patchwork the position with Joe Panik and Alen Hanson on the shelf.

Christian Yelich went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in a win over the Mets on Sunday.

Yelich enjoyed the Mets' visit to Miller Park, going 9-for-18 in the four-game series. The three-hit afternoon Sunday got his average up above .300 again, leaving his line at .305/.371/.467 through Sunday's games. Now seemingly settled in, the 26-year-old is showing why the Brewers paid a high price to acquire him this winter, and he should only continue to get better as the year goes along.
