Amed Rosario went 3-for-5 and drove in three runs on Sunday night, leading the Mets to an 8-2 victory over the Phillies in the Little League Classic in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Rosario plated two runs with a two-run single off of Nick Pivetta during a four-run uprising in the second inning. He then tacked on another run-scoring single in the sixth that extended the Mets' lead to 7-0. With the three-hit attack, the 22-year-old shortstop is now slashing .247/.290/.372 with six homers, 40 RBI and 14 stolen bases on the season.

Jeff McNeil went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI as the Mets rolled over the Phillies on Sunday evening in Williamsport.

McNeil delivered a two-out, two-run single in the fourth inning that increased the Mets' advantage to 6-0. The 26-year-old has done nothing but hit since joining the big league club, slashing .286/.355/.429 with two homers, 12 runs scored, eight RBI and one stolen base in his first 95 plate appearances.

Kevin Plawecki went 2-for-3 and scored three times as the Mets topped the Phillies on Sunday Night Baseball.

The veteran backstop also walked in the ballgame and drove in a run with an RBI single in the second inning. He's now hitting .241/.353/.405 with four homers and 24 RBI in 187 plate appearances on the season.

Jason Vargas picked up his third victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Phillies to two runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings.

The 35-year-old southpaw struck out three and didn't walk a batter in the contest. All of the damage against him came on a two-run blast off the bat of Carlos Santana in the sixth inning. Even with this nice outing though, Vargas still owns a cringe-inducing 7.67 ERA and 1.72 WHIP as he heads into Friday's start against the Nationals. He isn't a recommended streaming option in any format, even NL-only leagues.

Carlos Santana blasted a two-run homer on Sunday night, accounting for all of the Phillies' offense in a loss to the Mets.

Santana tagged Mets' starter Jason Vargas for the two-run shot in the sixth inning. It would be his lone hit in four at-bats on the evening. Santana also played a couple of innings at third base in this one, the first time that he has done so since the 2014 season. He's now hitting .218/.351/.400 with 18 homers and 69 RBI on the season.
Aug 19 - 10:25 PM

Nick Pivetta was knocked around in Sunday's loss to the Mets, allowing six runs on eight hits in his 3 2/3 innings of work.

The right-hander punched out five and walked one on the evening. The Mets used five singles and a sacrifice bunt to push four runs across in the second inning, then Pivetta left the bases loaded when he departed with two outs in the fourth, and two of those runners came around to score. He'll look to get back on track and improve upon his 4.66 ERA and 1.28 WHIP when he takes on the Blue Jays in Toronto on Saturday.

Orioles optioned OF Joey Rickard to Triple-A Norfolk.

The 27-year-old outfielder has struggled in his time with the Orioles this season, slashing just .227/.288/.420 with seven homers, 21 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 163 plate appearances. He should return to the O's once rosters expand at the end of the month.
Aug 19 - 9:18 PM

Mariners optioned OF Guillermo Heredia to Triple-A Tacoma.

No corresponding roster move has been announced yet. Mariners' manager Scott Servais told Heredia it was merely because the club was facing a few right-handed starters in a row. The lefty-masher will be back with the big league club once rosters expand for September.

Jhoulys Chacin fired six shutout innings to pick up his 13th win of the year against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Chacin scattered four hits and did not walk a batter. He stuck out three and threw a staggering 62 of 82 pitches for strikes over six frames. The 30-year-old righty has allowed one run or fewer in five of his last seven starts dating back to July 15. He's 13-4 with a 3.58 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 122/55 K/BB ratio in 27 starts this season. He's been an outstanding free agent bargain for the Brewers, who inked the well-traveled veteran to a two-year $15 million deal in December. He’ll face the Pirates at home in his next start on Saturday.

Hunter Renfroe was diagnosed with a bruised forearm after getting hit by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Renfroe did go for X-rays after the game, which came back negative. Padres' manager Andy Green said that he was hopeful Monday's off-day would allow him to heal up enough to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday.
Aug 19 - 8:07 PM

Manny Machado said after Sunday's game that his injured left wrist was fine and that he expects to be in the lineup on Monday.

Machado was sent for X-rays as a precautionary measure after he was plunked by Andrew Romine during Sunday's game, the results of which aren't known just yet. Machado said that the pitch caught him flush on the wrist, but it didn't hit the bone directly. It sounds like all will be well here, but be sure to check his status on Monday just to be safe.
Aug 19 - 8:04 PM

John Gant yielded two runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss against the Brewers on Sunday.

Gant recorded only one strikeout and also walked a pair of batters. A two-run double off the bat of Mike Moustakas accounted for the only damage against the right-hander, but the Cardinals offense failed to provide any run support to get him off the hook for the loss. The 26-year-old right-hander is 5-5 with a 3.76 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 66/33 K/BB ratio in 19 appearances (12 starts) this season. Despite his recent success, he’s not a recommended streaming option in his next start against the Rockies in Coors Field on Saturday.
Aug 19 - 8:00 PM

Josh Hader struck out two batters and fired a perfect ninth inning to record his 10th save of the year against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Hader was called upon to preserve a one-run lead in the ninth inning and needed just nine pitches (eight strikes) to slam the door. He struck out Marcell Ozuna and Paul DeJong to begin the frame got lefty-masher Jedd Gyorko to fly out to the wall in right field to end the contest. The 24-year-old southpaw lacks a prodigious save total, but he's been one of the most valuable relievers in fantasy baseball this year. He's 4-1 with a microscopic 1.52 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 106/23 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings.
Aug 19 - 7:53 PM

Brian Dozier went 3-for-5 and scored two runs in a win over the Mariners on Sunday.

Dozier was in a 1-for-16 slump coming into the game, so this was a nice breakout game for the veteran infielder. In 17 games since being acquired by the Dodgers, Dozier has a line of .250/.395/.477, and his season OPS is now up to .732 to go along with 19 homers and 11 steals in 121 games.
Aug 19 - 7:50 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base in the Brewers' win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Cain walked, stole second base -- his 23rd theft of the year -- and scored a run in the third inning. The 32-year-old veteran outfielder is one of only 15 major-league hitters with 20-plus steals this season. He's accomplished the feat in four of the last five years and has an outside shot at his first-ever 30-steal campaign. The Brewers marquee offseason addition is hitting .302/.394/.423 with 64 runs scored, nine homers and 31 RBI in 467 plate appearances.
