Cardinals Cut Down Mets

(St. Louis, MO) -- Matt Holliday hit a two-run homer during a three-run seventh inning as the Cardinals cut down the Mets, 6-3, in the opener of a four-game series.  Matt Carpenter had two hits, two runs and two RBI for the Cards, who have won 10 of their last 12.  Lance Lynn struck out seven over seven innings to improve to 6-and-1. Edward Mujica worked a perfect ninth for his 10th save. Daniel Murphy laced a two-run double for the Mets, who have dropped four in-a-row.  Scott Rice took the loss.


Cubs Bash Rockies

(Chicago, IL) -- Alfonso Soriano hit a two-run homer as the Cubs cruised past the Rockies, 9-1. David DeJesus, Nate Schierholtz and Welington Castillo were all 2-for-4 with two RBI for Chicago. Starlin Castro also had two hits and a pair of RBI for the Cubs, who have won three straight.  Travis Wood tossed seven innings of two-hit ball to improve to 4-2. Josh Rutledge's solo homer in the ninth gave Colorado its lone run. Juan Nicasio allowed five runs over six innings to fall to 3-1. The Rox have lost five out of their last six games.


Twins Crush White Sox

(Minneapolis, MN) -- Aaron Hicks homered twice and Justin Morneau knocked in four runs as the Twins crushed the White Sox, 10-3, in the opener of a three-game series at Target Field. Trevor Plouffe drove in a pair of runs for the Twins, who have won five of their last seven. Pedro Hernandez gave up three runs in five-and-a-third innings as he improved to 2-0. Alex Rios plated two runs and Alejandro had three hits and scored twice for the White Sox, who have lost three-of-four. Hector Santiago struck out six in five-and-two-thirds frames, but allowed six runs, three earned, on eight hits as he fell to 1-2.


Harper Leaves Nats' Win Over Dodgers

(Los Angeles, CA) -- Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper left Monday night's win over the Dodgers in Los Angeles after colliding with the wall. Harper was chasing a fly ball off the bat of A.J. Ellis when he ran directly into a portion of the wall that featured a scoreboard with no padding. The 20-year-old phenom had blood on his neck as he departed the field under his own power.


Upton Marks Return To Arizona With Big Night

(Phoenix, AZ) -- Justin Upton had a great return to the desert Monday night.  Upton and his Atlanta Braves started a three-game set with the Diamondbacks in Arizona with a 10-1 victory. Upton was 4-for-5 with a two-run homer against his former team. Fellow former D-Back Chris Johnson also hit a two-run shot. Both players were traded to Atlanta this offseason.
