Weeks after cancer surgery, Pittsburgh Pirates' Jameson Taillon to start

PITTSBURGH PA- May 07 Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow throws a pitch in the second inning during an MLB game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Milwaukee Brewers

He scattered five hits and left with the Pirates holding a 4-0 lead in what was eventually a 7-2 Pittsburgh victory.

Flowers had been hitless in his first four at-bats before he took Albers' fastball to the opposite field and into the Nationals bullpen.

A Mets 6, Cubs 1: Jacob deGrom pitched a five-hitter, Asdrubal Cabrera atoned for an embarrassing error by lining two home runs and turning four double plays, and NY beat visiting Chicago.

The Pirates added a pair of insurance runs in the seventh to extend their lead to 7-1 before a run in the ninth for the Rockies brought the score to 7-2. Story's throwing error from short off Harrison's grounder lit the fuse for Pittsburgh's two-run third inning. With 1,784 innings, he reached 2,000 strikeouts faster than every other pitcher except for Pedro Martinez (1,711) and Randy Johnson (1,733 1/3), MLB.com's Jamal Collier notes. He walked two and struck out three. In that streak, he is hitting.395 with four RBIs.

Not quite as bad as Mejia was Orioles starter Wade Miley, who was pulled after less than three innings.

Matt Davidson had an RBI single and solo homer. He's struck out 35 batters in 40 1/3 innings.

Nelson Cruz drove in four runs while Danny Valencia and Mike Zunino each homered as the Mariners snapped a brief two-game skid. He has not allowed more than three runs in any of his last three outings.

Monday night at hot and steamy PNC Park, the Rockies ran into a big rut.

RED SOX 6, PHILLIES 5 (11) Dustin Pedroia singled home the winning run in the 11th inning to lift host Boston over Philadelphia.

Darvish (6-4) allowed just one hit, an RBI single by Alex Bregman, and three walks while striking out four. He induced a season-best 12 groundball outs. Pittsburgh pounded out eleven hits and walked twice with Elias Diaz going 2-4 with two runs driven with Jordy Mercer also recording a run scoring single.

Yankees 5, Angels 3: Aaron Judge hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the eighth to lead NY to its sixth consecutive win, beating Los Angeles in Anaheim, California. He is hitting.135 on the season. At the same time, manager Clint Hurdle likely didn't want to push him too hard in his first game back.

Jose Alvarez (0-3) gave up Aaron Hicks' one-out double before Judge's homer. He is projected for 9.1 FanDuel points at a $3,000 cost versus the Pirates. Gonzalez went 0-for-4, and his average dipped to.219.
