Nimmo connected for a tying home run against Taylor Williams leading off the sixth on a cold, blustery afternoon at Citi Field. Since we're already nearly three weeks in it's time for the first episode of the season. Thor had a no-hitter through the first four innings. The first baseman was removed in the middle of the third after striking out twice, and the Brewers said he strained a left adductor muscle.

Jeremy Jeffress got the final two outs of the seventh before Josh Hader struck out five in two flawless innings for his first big-league save. While he hasn't been lights out, he's still 2-0 on the year with a 3.94 ERA and 22 strikeouts in three games.

The loss cost NY manager Mickey Callaway a chance to tie Joe Morgan (12-1 with the 1988 Boston Red Sox) for the best 13-game start ever for a rookie manager.

Calling that first at-bat a "statement" was the understatement of the year, as Sydergaard went on to strike out six batters in six innings and get the win in the Mets' 9-3 victory, their only win that series. He scored four times and hit his third homer off Junichi Tazawa.

Desmond played his first seven seasons in the majors for the Nationals, through 2015.

Anibal Sanchez allowed three hits over six innings, Preston Tucker backed him with a three-run homer and Atlanta spoiled Yu Darvish's first home start for Chicago.

Bandy and Travis Shaw had two hits apiece.

Jonathan Villar provided Anderson all the support he'd need with a three-run homer in the second inning.

DODGERS 7, DIAMONDBACKS 2: Clayton Kershaw struck out 12 and pitched two-hit ball over seven innings as Los Angeles won at home to end an 11-game losing streak against Arizona in the regular season.
