Nova, Frazier lead Pirates to 9-4 win over Braves

Ivan Nova was ticked off. Nova pitched into the ninth inning before tiring, local favorite Adam Frazier hit a three-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded Bartolo Colon for a 9-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday. After breezing through the first six innings, facing only three over the minimum, Nova (5-3) came up short in his bid to become the first pitcher in the big leagues this season with three complete games.

Chili Davis: Red Sox hitters’ lack of strikeouts not by design

BOSTON - The Red Sox aren’t hitting for power as much as they’re expected to and they’re striking out less than anyone. Far less.   So, maybe they should just swing harder?    It’s not that simple, considering they have the second-best batting average in the majors, .271, and the third-best on-base percentage, .342.   Entering Thursday, the Sox had 300 strikeouts, 34 fewer than the 29th team on the list, the Mets. (The Mets have also played 34 games, while the Sox have already played 36.)   In April, when this trend was already evident, Red Sox hitting coach Chili Davis was asked if the lack of strikeouts were by design.   “I don’t think it’s purposeful,” Davis said. “But that can be a good thing

MLB Power Rankings: Rangers, Mets headed in opposite directions

I’m really, really worried about your team. The rankings (records through Wednesday’s games): 1. Houston Astros (31-16; Previous: 3): Three years since Sports Illustrated said they’d win in ’17, and now everything feels a little stale. 2. Washington Nationals

It appears Terry Collins isn’t allowed to talk about player injuries

Based on what happened before Wednesday's game, it appears the team's management is not letting Terry Collins talk to reporters about player injuries. Collins was more or less vague Wednesday when asked about Jay Bruce, who was out of the starting lineup due to a back issue that pulled him from a game the night before. "I'm not at liberty to discuss the injury situation," Collins said, sounding slightly frustrated after being asked if Bruce would be able to play Thursday. Similarly, Collins would not give a timetable for Yoenis Cespedes (strained hamstring), who will reportedly soon start a rehab assignment. When asked about Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb), Collins said he might play an unusual six-to-10

The Mets won’t let their manager discuss player injuries anymore

Thursday’s Say Hey, Baseball includes the Mets being the Mets, the Braves playing Mario Kart, and the possible end for Jered Weaver. Remember like, less than a week ago, when a story published that explained how it was very likely that Mets' COO Jeff Wilpon was making his team's medical decisions, and that his primary concern had to do with how the Mets were viewed in this light and not necessarily the health of his players or whether the job was being done right? Well, the Mets have found their next target in the PR battle against injuries, and it's manager Terry Collins.

LEADING OFF: Cubs stage “Anchorman” trip, Pujols nears 600

With his Chicago Cubs hovering just over .500, manager Joe Maddon is borrowing inspiration from the Channel 4 news team: new suits! The Cubs will sport ''Anchorman'' themed outfits when they leave Chicago for Los Angeles to begin a road trip that will also take them through San Diego, site of Will Ferrell's comedy about a local news station. There will be plenty of Ron Burgundys and Brian Fantanas on the flight, to be sure, but Maddon had one request: to dress infielder Tommy La Stella as weatherman Brick Tamland.

Mets activate Travis d’Arnaud, place Tommy Milone on disabled list

The Mets announced on Wednesday that catcher Travis d'Arnaud has been activated from the 10-day disabled list and pitcher Tommy Milone has been placed on the 10-day DL. The Mets’ backstop appeared to have suffered the injury in mid-April when he accidentally hit his hand on the bat of the opposing hitter when he was making a throw. Milone, 30, made three mostly forgettable starts for the Mets, yielding 15 runs (14 earned) on 19 hits and seven walks with 12 strikeouts in 12 innings.
