Ozzie Albies went 2-for-4 with three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Albies led the way, scoring three of the Braves' 12 runs in the offensive onslaught. He now leads the league with his 19 runs scored, to go with five homers and 11 RBI. The 21-year-old is batting a healthy .316/.349/.646 at the outset of his sophomore campaign.

Matt Harvey allowed eight hits and six runs over six innings Thursday, suffering the loss to the Braves.

Harvey gave up three runs in the first inning, including a two-run homer to Kurt Suzuki, and three more runs in the third before tossing three scoreless frames to end his night. After a debut in which he yielded just one hit over five scoreless innings, the 29-year-old has now given up eight runs on 17 hits over 10 innings in his last two starts. Assuming the Mets stick with him -- which isn't a given -- Harvey will take a 6.00 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into a start Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Making his season debut Thursday, Matt Wisler limited the Mets to one run over seven innings, striking out eight, in a win.

Wisler wasn't even publicly announced as the starter until a few hours before the game, but after seeing him work it's hard to imagine the Braves had any better options. The right-hander dealt, mixing a low-90s fastball with a devastating breaking ball that kept the Mets hitters off balance all night. He gave up just two hits without issuing a walk in the victory. With Anibal Sanchez still sidelined, Wisler will surely take the next rotation turn as well, lining up to face the Reds on Tuesday.

Jake Arrieta struck out 10 over seven scoreless innings as the Phillies shut out the Pirates 7-0 on Thursday.

Arrieta was nothing short of dominant, allowing just one hit while walking two in his seven innings of work. He had it all working -- breaking pitches, fastball, location. It was easily his best start of the year to date, improving his record to 2-1 with a strong 2.04 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 16/6 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings. A meeting with the Diamondbacks is on tap for Arrieta and the Phils on Wednesday.

Odrisamer Despaigne left Thursday's game against the Brewers with a right forearm strain.

He allowed three hits and two runs in 2/3 of an inning before exiting. Injuries of this nature usually require a stint on the disabled list. The right-hander owns a 2-0 record for the Fish, though he carries an ERA north of six.
Apr 19 - 11:22 PM

J.P. Crawford went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

After starting the year on an absolute cold streak, Crawford has come around at the plate in recent days. He's got nine hits in his last 25 at-bats (.360), with six RBI and five runs scored. The slow start has marred his overall line, though, and he's hitting .208/.255/.375 through Thursday's game.

Tyler Austin had his suspension appeal heard Thursday at MLB offices in Manhattan.

He's trying to get a reduction on his five-game suspension, which stems from fighting with Joe Kelly last week at Fenway Park. Kelly, who is facing a six-game ban, will have his appeal heard on Friday. Austin should hear back from the league relatively soon. He's been splitting time at first base with Neil Walker.

Rhys Hoskins hit his third home run of the season in a win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Hoskins hit a laser shot down the left field line that landed a few feet fair and cleared the wall by a few feet as well, but they all look the same in the box score. The homer was the third of the year for the 25-year-old, who now has 14 homers, 13 runs scored and three steals in the early weeks of his sophomore campaign. It's certainly shaping up to be another promising one after a great debut, as Hoskins is hitting .327/.486/.618 in 18 games played.
