Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Mets topped the Pirates 7-2 in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Granderson also scored a run in the contest. His run-scoring single in the sixth inning plated Asdrubal Cabrera and increased the Mets' advantage to 6-1. While he had struggled mightily out of the leadoff spot entering play on Sunday, perhaps this was exactly the type of game Granderson needed to get back on track. He's now hitting .191/.265/.364 with four homers and 19 RBI.

Gregory Polanco crushed his third home run of the season as the Pirates fell to the Mets on Sunday night.

His solo shot in the second inning was the only offense that the Pirates could muster against Mets' starter Matt Harvey. He also singled and came around to score the club's other run in the eighth inning. With his 2-for-4 effort, Polanco is now slashing .265/.340/.417 with three homers and 11 RBI on the season.

Lucas Duda launched his seventh home run of the season on Sunday as the Mets trounced the Pirates 7-2 in Pittsburgh.

It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the night, but he certainly was able to make it count with a solo shot in the seventh inning that increased the Mets' advantage to 7-1. He's quietly having a nice season in the middle of the Mets' lineup, slashing .264/.396/.592 with seven homers and 16 RBI in 28 games.

Jay Bruce - OF - Mets

Jay Bruce went 3-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI as the Mets beat the Pirates on Sunday.

Bruce came through with a two-run double in the fifth inning, increasing the Mets' early lead to 5-1. With the three-hit attack, Bruce is now slashing .258/.333/.528 with 12 long balls and 34 RBI.

Matt Harvey delivered one of his finest starts of the 2017 season on Sunday, allowing just one run on six hits over six innings in a victory over the Pirates.

The right-hander walked two and struck out four on the evening. The only damage he allowed was a solo homer off the bat of Gregory Polanco in the second inning. In what has been an inconsistent and drama-filled season to date, perhaps this is the type of start Harvey needed to get back on track. He'll bring a 4.95 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into a rematch against these same Pirates at home on Friday.
May 28 - 11:27 PM

Tyler Glasnow's troublesome 2017 season continued on Sunday as he allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Mets.

Glasnow struck out three on the evening and didn't walk a batter. He kept the Mets' offense at bay through the first three innings, but they broke through for a pair in the fourth on a two-run double by Asdrubal Cabrera and tacked on three more the following frame. The rookie hurler now sports a cringe-inducing 6.95 ERA and 1.90 WHIP on the season. He'll hope for better results in a rematch against the Mets in New York on Saturday.
May 28 - 11:26 PM

Francisco Liriano racked up seven strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in his minor league rehab start with Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

The veteran left-hander allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and a pair of walks, throwing 48 of his 72 pitches for strikes. It's unclear if he'll require an additional rehab start or be cleared to rejoin the Jays' rotation this week.
May 28 - 10:51 PM

Twins optioned 1B/DH Kennys Vargas to Triple-A Rochester.

After going hitless in eight plate appearances on Sunday (including four strikeouts), Vargas gets the boot. He was hitting .258/.280/.483 with five homers and 19 RBI in 24 games with the Twins.
May 28 - 10:47 PM

Twins placed RHP Justin Haley on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder soreness.

The Rule 5 pick has logged only 16 1/3 innings in nine appearances with the Twins this season, compiling a 6.06 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 13/5 K/BB ratio. He'll return at some point in June.
May 28 - 10:19 PM

Robbie Ross hasn't pitched since being optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket due to elbow inflammation.

The southpaw struggled during his time with the Red Sox and now has been shut down. There's no clear timetable for his return to action.
May 28 - 10:12 PM

Ryan Schimpf blasted his 13th home run on Sunday, helping to lead the Padres to a 5-3 victory over the Nationals.

His two-run blast off of Joe Ross put the Padres ahead to stay in the first inning. He finished the afternoon 1-for-5 and is now hitting .163/.294/.442 with 13 bombs and 24 RBI on the season.
May 28 - 9:20 PM

Franchy Cordero tallied the first two hits of his big league career in Sunday's win over the Nationals.

Cordero started in center field on Sunday and hit sixth in the lineup. He's now 2-for-6 in two games at the big league level. Given his combination of power and speed, he's worth a look in NL-only formats as long as he's getting at-bats.
May 28 - 9:18 PM

Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs on Sunday as the Padres topped the Nationals.

Drawing a start at shortstop in this one, d'Arnaud delivered a two-run single in the fifth inning that increased the Padres' advantage to 5-2. He's now hitting .350/.409/.400 in his limited action this season.
May 28 - 9:02 PM

Jhoulys Chacin struggled in a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

On the positive side, Chacin did rack up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking two. He has been extremely inconsistent this season, especially away from home, and now sports a troublesome 5.77 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season. He'll try to get back in the win column on Saturday against the Rockies.
May 28 - 8:59 PM

Adam Lind went 1-for-3 and plated two runs on Sunday as the Nationals fell to the Padres.

Lind plated his club's first run on a fielder's choice in the first inning. He then delivered an RBI double in the fifth. He has been impressive in limited action this season, slashing .340/.400/.604 with three homers and 16 RBI.
