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.
