The Night’s Still Young! In what looked on paper to be a pitcher’s duel between Matt Harvey and Tim Lincecum, turned out to be an extra-inning duel between both bullpens. Buster Posey struck first with a two-run home run in the first inning to give the Giants an early 2-0 lead. It took Harvey 50 pitches to get through the first two innings. Lincecum took a no hitter into the fifth, but Marlon Byrd broke […]

He allowed a 14th-inning RBI single to Martin Prado today in the Mets’ 5-4, 15-inning loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Mets signed Lyon […]

Forced to exercise a clause that would have prevented him from becoming a free agent, the Mets promoted right-hander Carlos Torres from Triple-A Las Vegas. To make room for him, the team optioned reliever Greg Burke to Vegas and designated Collin McHugh for assignment to clear a 40-man roster spot. Torres, 30, exercised an opt-out in his contract Friday, giving the Mets 48 hours to promote him or release him. Torres is in the middle of a recent good stretch […]
