  • Alonso blasts 39th homer, drives in five in win
    Pete Alonso went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer on Sunday, leading the Mets to a 13-4 rout over the A's.

    Advice: Alonso got the Mets on the board in the first inning when he scampered home off the bat of Tyler Naquin's single to right field. The potent Mets offense would chase A's started JP Sears in the fourth inning but the Polar Bear would welcome A's reliever X Ruíz to the came with a majestic 451-foot two-run bomb to give the visiting Mets a comfortable 7-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning. The 27-year-old slugger is hitting a cool .270/.349/.519 with 39 homers and holds the Mets single-season RBI total with 125 runs scored, which should extend for the week and a half.

  • JP Sears catalogues yet another loss Sunday
    JP Sears allowed six runs on eight hits over 3 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Mets. 

    Advice: Sears skated through the first inning but the Mets juggernaut offense was too much to keep at bay. After Pete Alonso reached on an infield single, Eduardo Escobar quickly smacked a single to right field. Tyler Naquin would connect with a four-seamer that landed in center field, driving in Alonso from third base. Things would get even worse and the Mets quickly added on five more runs before the 26-year-old departed in the fourth inning. Sears generated seven swings and misses and posted a lowly 23 percent CSW. He will face the Mariners and Luis Castillo in Seattle on Saturday. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:34 pm

  • Camilo Doval snags his 26th save on Sunday
    Camilo Doval struck out one batter while allowing one run to score but recorded the save against the Diamondbacks on Sunday. 

    Advice: Doval was a bit shaky Sunday in Phoenix. Christian Walker smacked a quick double to deep right-center field before an awful four-pitch walk to Sergio Alcántara with one lone out. Pavin Smith connected with a sacrifice fly that scored Walked to give the Diamondbacks a fighting chance in the bottom of the ninth. Doval reared back and struck out rookie Corbin Caroll to secure the win and his 26th save of the year. The 25-year-old has been outstanding with a 2.48 ERA and 1.22 WHIP to go along with 26 saves across 65 1/3 innings. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:58 pm
  • Eric Hosmer (back) expected to return this season
    Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters on Sunday that Eric Hosmer (back) is still expected to return to the Red Sox before the end of the season.

    Advice: Hosmer hasn't played since August 20 due to inflammation in his lower back, but he resumed baseball activities on Tuesday and is finally making tangible strides toward a return. He can still be ignored for fantasy purposes. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:50 pm
