Nightly 9: Matt Harvey and the Mets take down Yankees

Baseball The Mets took it to the Yankees on Saturday to even the Subway Series at a game apiece, and continue to boast the best record in baseball. Matt Harvey has been dealing in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, and the Mets' opportunistic hitters are taking advantage of opposing pitchers' mistakes. Elsewhere, the Royals and White Sox received their punishments for Thursday night's brawl, and Cardinals fans are holding their breath over Adam Wainwright's reported ankle injury.Here are some of the highlights from around the league Saturday night: MORE: Beltre breaks bats, bills Richards | Protests at Camden Yards  | Wainwright injuredImpact playersC — Andrew Susac, Giants: Susac went 2 for 5 with a solo home run and a walk in a 5-4, 11-inning win against the Rockies. 1B — Mark Teixeira, Yankees: Teixeira bashed his eighth home run of the season in a 3-for-4 day despite the Yankees' loss to the Mets.2B — Jose Altuve, Astros: Altuve went 2 for 5 with three runs scored and hit a rare home run in a 9-3 win against the Athletics.SS — Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies: Tulo went 2 for 5 with a solo home run as his average climbed back over .300 on the season.3B — Evan Longoria, Rays: Longoria had been quiet in April until Saturday's 4-for-4 effort.

As good as advertised, no doubt about it. … He's a horse. He's got four plus pitches, throws them all for strikes, great demeanor out there on the mound. The Mets are in good shape. He's a cornerstone for them." — Alex Rodriguez, on Mets pitcher Matt Harvey .This city belongs to @MattHarvey33 : #LightsOut— (@) April 26, 2015Wainwright acknowledged after Saturday's game that the injury he suffered running out of the batter's box is to the back of his left ankle."I thought I got hit by something," said Wainwright, who pulled up lame after a fifth-inning pop-out on Saturday night in Milwaukee. "If you look at the replay, I get out of the box and I looked back to think the catcher’s mask must of hit me or the bat must’ve hit me, something must’ve hit me." In other words, it's his Achilles tendon. And if he ruptured it, the right-handed ace could be done for the rest of the 2015 season. Off the fieldProtesters rioted in the streets of Baltimore right outside Camden Yards, prompting police to momentarily hold fans inside the stadium even after the 10-inning game ended.The players involved in the White Sox-Royals game learned their punishments Saturday:Full suspensions from the #Royals / #WhiteSox brawl. #onFS1— FOX Sports: (@ONFOX) April 25, 2015The Blue Jays released starting pitcher Ricky Romero .

The game should be good as well in the competitive AL East. White Sox (6-9) at Royals (12-4) 2:10 p.m.: These two teams will finish up their game from two nights ago that's tied 2-2 in the eighth before playing a full game after. Dodgers (11-6) at Padres (10-9) 4:10 p.m.: Both teams have been two of the hottest in baseball offensively and didn't disappoint Saturday in a 19-run slugfest. The Dodgers have suffered some injuries early in the season, but it's done little to slow them down.
