Amed Rosario's First Homer Leads Mets Over Phillies

Yoenis Cespedes led the charge, going 2 for 5 with a home run and a team-high four RBIs, while Michael Conforto and Amed Rosario each added a solo home run. His last outing was the worst of that stretch as he surrendered eight runs (six earned) in just 2 2/3 innings against the Colorado Rockies on Saturday. He had been blazing through the Phillies, tossing 6 2/3 innings of four-hit ball, striking out nine before exiting the game. The 24-year-old right-hander will face the Mets at home next.

Curtis Granderson went 0-for-5 Friday night and left four runners stranded.

Odubel Herrera extended his career-best hitting streak to 13 consecutive games with a seventh-inning single for the Phillies. A natural first baseman, Hoskins started in left field after getting his first action there as a pro just this week at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Athletics 5, Orioles 4 • The A's rallied for two runs in the eighth on Jed Lowrie's RBI double and Chad Pinder's sacrifice fly as Oakland beat visiting Baltimore.

The Phillies held a pregame moment of silence for former star catcher Darren Daulton.

That news circulated on Thursday, which apparently frustrated an unnamed Mets official. The Mets have an opening for some playing time after trading outfielder Jay Bruce to Cleveland on Wednesday night.

Phillies: OF Aaron Altherr likely won't return until September, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said prior to the game.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Mets are -108 money line favorites versus the Phillies, who have odds of -102 to win tonight at home. Altherr (strained right hamstring) went on the DL on Saturday.

Yankees 5, Red Sox 4 • Aaron Hicks hit a two-run homer that sparked a five-run eighth inning as NY beat visiting Boston.

Twins 9, Tigers 4 • Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario homered and drove in three runs each as Minnesota won in Detroit.
