At some point, Clayton Kershaw's price has to get too high, right? Not today against the Mets, writes Todd Zola. Best buys (Insider)

Syndergaard tossed for throwing behind Utley

With the memories of the past postseason perhaps still in the minds of the Mets, Noah Syndergaard throws a fastball behind Chase Utley, which gets the Mets pitcher tossed from the game.

Would you look at that? Buster Posey, crushing two homers in a day. #ASGWorthy @esurance #ASG ballot:

As expected, no Mark Teixeira in today's Yankees lineup. Also, Carlos Beltran, who suffered some discomfort near his shoulder blade, will not play, nor will Chase Headley, just because. Here's the Yankees lineup that will face RHP Jake Odorizzi and the Rays today at 1:10 pm; Ellsbury cf, Gardner lf, Castro 2b, McCann c, Rodriguez DH, Gregorius ss, Hicks rf, Ackley 1b, Torreyes 3b, Eovaldi P

By the way: The only extra-base hit allowed by Clayton Kershaw this season after getting ahead 0-1 in count, in 151 ABs -- Bumgarner, HR.

Clayton Kershaw on Sunday Night Baseball tonight. Having all timer of a season. Kershaw has 95 strikeouts and only five walks this season

John Buccigross @Buccigross

Chase Utley: HR once every 17.8 at-bats vs Mets. No 2B in last 100 years has had a better at-bat per HR ratio against a single opponent

Darvish K’s 7 in Rangers return

First start since having Tommy John surgery 14 months ago: 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 K's. Not bad, Yu Darvish.


Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Noah Syndergaard insisted the pitch was not on purpose. Terry Collins concerned about discipline from league. Collins said he told pitchers in LA earlier this month not to do anything that might draw retaliation and get Mets batters hurt. Collins didn't even mention it before this series and said umpires didn't even know about history until after this series began.

Butler crushes first home run of season

Billy Butler absolutely crushed this solo blast, his first home run of the season, to put the Athletics on the board first against the Tigers.


Bogaerts extends hit streak with HR

The Red Sox SS crushed a home run to deep left field to extend his hit streak to 21 games. He has hit five homers in that span.

Nothing like a slam in NYC. #PapaSlam

The Dodgers' Chase Utley wasn't surprised the Mets sought retribution this far into the season series, and he's not ruling out the same thing in the series finale Sunday.
