Yu is back and bringing the 🔥🔥🔥
Noah Syndergaard has been ejected for throwing behind Chase Utley with a third-inning pitch. Terry Collins also was ejected for arguing. Perhaps it was retribution for Utley's NLDS slide. But it's hard to fathom the Mets waited until Game 6 of the seven-game season series to do this.
Adam Wainwright and Mike Leake have been exchanging trash talk about their hitting since the team's Winter Warmup fan event in January. They wouldn't reveal the stakes, but they also have something riding on who finishes the season with superior numbers. Wainwright figures to collect on that wager as Leake is just 2-for-17 with a double. Wainwright, meanwhile, hit his third double, driving in two runs, in the second inning off Gio Gonzalez. He also has a triple and a home run and is 5-for-17 overall.
And in the night's most awkward moment so far, Chase Utley steps back up to the plate after Noah Syndergaard's pitch went behind him. Syndergaard and Mets manager Terry Collins ejected.
Mets P Noah Syndergaard is ejected from game in the 3rd inning for throwing behind Dodgers' Chase Utley.
Yu Darvish wants his mom to know he's thinking about her.
When Daniel Murphy hit a shallow fly ball to right field and Stephen Piscotty couldn't make a diving catch on it, Murphy had his 41st base hit of May. That set a new Washington Nationals record for hits in any calendar month.
Billy Butler absolutely crushes this solo blast, his first home run of the season, to put the Athletics on the board first against the Tigers.
Darvish collects his third strikeout on a 96-mph fastball and finishes inning with only seven pitches.
Adrian Beltre homers on the ninth pitch of his at-bat - a two-run blast - to give Yu Darvish a 3-0 first-inning lead.
The Dodgers' Kenta Maeda remained in Saturday's game despite getting hit in the right hand/wrist by a Michael Conforto comebacker in the first inning. Conforto reached first base on a single as the ball rebounded toward third base. Maeda was visited by a trainer and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts but remained in the game after throwing a few warm-up pitches.
Prince Fielder gives Texas a 1-0 run, when he drives in a run with a groundout. The RBI is the 1,009th of his career, surpassing his dad, Cecil, who had 1,008.
Tigers chalking it up to an off-day for the bullpen. Manager Brad Ausmus on sticking with reliever Warwick Saupold in the sixth: "Once you're trailing, you don't want to burn one of your back-end guys."
The Dodgers' Kenta Maeda has taken the mound in New York having given up four runs in four of his last five starts. The Dodgers lost four of those five games.
Clearly, Darvish's fastball has been unaffected by Tommy John surgery. He threw 12 fastballs in the first inning: 94, 95, 93, 96, 96, 96, 98, 98, 95, 95, 95.
Darvish notches his first strikeout, when Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen swings through a slider.
Yu Darvish gives up a solid single up the middle on a 94-mph fastball to leadoff hitter John Jaso in his first start since Tommy John surgery.
Things got ugly for the Tigers in the sixth inning and devolved from there. Detroit ends up getting absolutely walloped by the now 21-29 Oakland A's, 12-3.
@Royals complete largest 9th-inning comeback win in club history. #Walkoff
The Dodgers optioned teenage left-hander Julio Urias back to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday. Urias, 19, lasted just 2 2/3 innings during his major league debut Friday in New York. To add depth to the bullpen, the team selected the contract of right-hander Casey Fien from Oklahoma City.
The Red Sox SS crushed a home run to deep left field to extend his hitting streak to 21 games. He has hit five homers during that span.
