MLB roundup: Mets’ Kevin Pillar OK after hit in face by pitch

TOMAS Nido had three hits and scored two runs to help the New York Mets defeat the host Atlanta Braves (3-1) on Monday and halt a three-game losing streak.

The game featured a frightening incident, when the Mets’ Kevin Pillar was hit in the face by a 94 mph fastball from Jacob Webb in the seventh inning. Pillar appeared to be struck on the bridge of his nose. He immediately went to the ground and blood was flowing freely as trainers rushed to get towels on the injury.

After the game, Mets manager Luis Rojas said Pillar was undergoing a CT scan at a hospital, and Pillar tweeted, “I’m doing fine.”

Sean Reid-Foley (1-0) got the win for his three scoreless innings in relief. Edwin Diaz picked up his sixth save. Max Fried (1-2) went six-plus innings, allowing one run, two walks and eight strikeouts. Atlanta’s run came on Austin Riley’s homer in the eighth.

RANGERS 5, YANKEES 2

Jordan Lyles pitched six solid innings and Adolis Garcia and Willie Calhoun hit solo homers off Gerrit Cole as Texas defeated New York in Arlington, Texas.

Lyles (2-3) helped the Rangers end a six-game losing streak by allowing one run on six hits. He struck out six, walked one and threw 85 pitches to lower his ERA from 6.63 to 5.93. Garcia and Calhoun homered off Cole (5-2) by connecting on 0-2 pitches.

Gio Urshela hit an RBI single in the first inning, and Luke Voit launched his first home run of the season for the Yankees in the eighth.

WHITE SOX 16, TWINS 4

Nick Madrigal, Leury Garcia and Yermin Mercedes each had three hits to lead Chicago’s offensive onslaught during a victory over Minnesota in Minneapolis.

Even with three-time All-Star Jose Abreu ruled out for the series due to left ankle inflammation, the White Sox recorded season highs in runs and hits (18) to win their ninth game in their past 11.

Madrigal hit his first career home run, a leadoff shot in the third inning, and Danny Mendick socked a grand slam in the fifth. The spiraling Twins lost for the 10th time in their past 12 games.

GIANTS 6, REDS 3

Wilmer Flores, Mike Yastrzemski and Mauricio Dubon homered and Logan Webb scattered six hits over six shutout innings to lead visiting San Francisco past Cincinnati in the opener of a four-game series.

Webb (3-3) fanned four, walked one and escaped a bases-loaded jam in the second inning. He threw just 86 pitches and induced two ground-ball double plays in an efficient night of work.

Reds right-hander Sonny Gray (0-3) struggled from the start, yielding five hits, four runs — three earned — over five innings, striking out a season-low three and walking two. He surrendered homers to Flores and Yastrzemski.

CUBS 7, NATIONALS 3

Jason Heyward, Willson Contreras and Javier Baez smacked home runs against former teammate Jon Lester to power host Chicago to a victory over Washington.

Lester received numerous standing ovations from Cubs fans, including when he exited the game after 5 1/3 innings. Lester (0-2) hadn’t yielded a home run in his first three starts with the Nationals, but the three were among eight hits he allowed on Monday.
