Trevor Bauer wasn't at his best in Friday's no-decision against the Orioles, surrendering three runs on nine hits across six frames.

Bauer walked a pair and struck out four in the ballgame. All three runs that he allowed came in the first inning, then Bauer was able to settle in nicely and blank the O's the next five innings. He'll carry a 4.34 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rangers.

Curtis Granderson launched a walk-off solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning in Friday’s 6-5 victory over the Dodgers.

Citi Field was down in the dumps after Jeurys Familia blew the lead in the top of the ninth, but Granderson took Pedro Baez deep to lead off the bottom of the frame to send the fans home happy. It was just the second walk-off homer of Granderson’s career and his first since way back on September 26, 2005. The 35-year-old is batting just .200 with a .300 on-base percentage this season, but he has at least managed nine home runs.

Jacob deGrom shined Friday against the Dodgers by tossing seven innings of one-run ball.

DeGrom was in line for the win before Jeurys Familia coughed up the lead in the ninth. Regardless, it was his best start of the season. He held the Dodgers to just three hits, with the lone run scoring on a sacrifice fly by Chase Utley in the third inning. Showing improved velocity, he struck out seven and walked three. While deGrom hasn’t been at the top of his game yet, he still owns a solid 2.81 ERA over his first eight starts. He’ll look for more progress in an interleague matchup against the White Sox next week.

Julio Urias struggled in his major league debut Friday night against the Mets, allowing three runs in five hits and four walks over 2 2/3 innings.

This just in: Pitching in the majors is hard. All three runs scored in the first inning. Urias was pulled in the third inning after loading the bases. The stuff looked good - the 19-year-old worked in the mid-90s with his fastball and broke off a few good breaking balls — but the command and control weren't there for him on this night. He threw just 42 out of 81 pitches for strikes. On the bright side, things can only get better from here. This is just the beginning.

Jeurys Familia gave up four runs in a non-save situation Friday against the Dodgers.

Asked to hold a 5-1 lead, Familia gave up back-to-back singles to begin the ninth inning before striking out Joc Pederson swinging. Yasiel Puig followed with a single before Familia walked Yasmani Grandal to force in a run. He got the second out by striking out pinch-hitter Trayce Thompson swinging, but Chase Utley followed with a double to the right-center field gap to clear the bases and tie the ballgame. Familia struck out Corey Seager to get out of the frame and actually ended up the winning pitcher after Curtis Granderson led off the bottom of the ninth with a home run. The ugly outing increased his ERA from 2.01 to 3.47 on the year.

Juan Lagares went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI against the Dodgers on Friday.

Lagares drove in two runs with a single in the first inning against Julio Urias before taking Joe Blanton deep in the fifth inning for his first home run of the season. The Mets continue to sit young outfielder Michael Conforto against left-handers, so Lagares will get occasional starts in center field, but his fantasy appeal is limited to NL-only and daily formats.
May 27 - 10:50 PM

Chase Utley continued to play the role of Mets nemesis on Friday by driving in four of the Dodgers’ five runs.

It was Utley’s first game action at Citi Field since he broke Ruben Tejada’s leg on a "slide" into second base during the NLDS in Los Angeles last October. Mets fans let him have it, but it didn’t knock Utley off his game. In addition to drawing two walks, he had a sacrifice fly in the third inning and tied the ballgame up with a dramatic bases-clearing double in the top of the ninth inning. The Mets would go on to win the game in the bottom of the frame, but Utley continues to produce at the top of the order for the Dodgers. The 37-year-old is batting .292/.385/.416 over 43 games.
May 27 - 10:49 PM

Masahiro Tanaka was brilliant Friday against the Rays, allowing just two hits over seven scoreless innings as part of a 4-1 win.

Tanaka gave up just two hits, both of them singles. He didn’t allow his first one until the fifth inning. He was very efficient, throwing 53 out of 82 pitches for strikes while walking none and striking out four. Tanaka had a pair of shaky outings earlier this month, but he has bounced back by allowing just one run in 14 innings over his last two starts. He’ll bring a 2.89 ERA into a start against the Blue Jays on the road next week.
