Baseball-Major League Baseball roundup (Reuters)

The Cleveland Indians acquired left-handed All-Star reliever Andrew Miller from the New York Yankees on Sunday in a five-player trade to bolster their bullpen. In exchange, the Yankees received a package of four prospects -- outfielder Clint Frazier, left-hander Justus Sheffield and right-handed pitchers Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen. The Yankees had been entertaining offers for Miller after they traded closer Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs last week.

Yankees-Mets preview (The Associated Press)

For the first time ever, the New York Mets and New York Yankees will play each other in August. For only the second time since interleague play began in 1997, the Mets (54-50) will take the field as the reigning National League champions. There will not be the same buzz this week that surrounded the regular-season games between New York's clubs in 2001, the year after the Yankees beat the Mets in five games in the first World Series pitting Big Apple teams against each other since 1956.

Rockies finish strong road trip with 6-4 loss to Mets (The Associated Press)

Thanks to a recent run of improved play, the Colorado Rockies figure their team will be intact after Monday's trade deadline. The surprising Rockies are within striking distance of a wild-card spot, and it seems there's no sell-off coming this season. At least that was the clubhouse consensus following Sunday's 6-4 loss to the New York Mets.

Walker rallies Mets past Rockies 6-4 to avoid season sweep (The Associated Press)

Slipping in the standings and on the cusp of getting wiped out by Colorado again, the New York Mets got a huge swing from Neil Walker in the seventh inning. Walker hit a go-ahead, three-run homer that rallied the Mets past the Rockies 6-4 on Sunday and prevented a season sweep. The switch-hitter also had an RBI triple, extending his recent tear at the plate, and Jeurys Familia rebounded from consecutive blown saves.
