Pete Alonso leads Mets to a 3-1 win over D-backs
With a flurry of September home runs, Pete Alonso has put himself in position to do something no Major League rookie ever has. Alonso hit his 46th and 47th homers in a 3-1 win over the D-backs on Monday, putting him on pace for 53 for the season. If he maintains that level of power production, Alonso would break Aaron Judge’s rookie record... more

Most days after Seth Lugo plays catch, he and Mickey Callaway have a brief conversation. The manager asks whether Lugo is available for that game. Lugo answers yes or no.

Cubs pounce on Mets early, hold on for victory

Cubs pounce on Mets early, hold on for victory
The Cubs had an offensive identity over the first six weeks of the season. They slugged to the opposite field, displaying the approach preached by manager Joe Maddon all spring long. They made pitchers work, drew their walks and were on the attack. And then that brand of offensive baseball went missing — except in sporadic, overwhelming bursts — for... more
