Noah Syndergaard took care of birthday gifts for his dad and manager with one scintillating start. The Mets’ prized prospect pitched six-hit ball into the eighth inning and connected for his first major league home run, and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-0 Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep. ”Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday and when I asked him what he wanted all he asked for was a ‘W’,” Syndergaard said.

Jeff Locke doesn’t have the same electric stuff as the other four guys in Pittsburgh’s rotation. When his curveball obeys the way it did in Tuesday night’s 5-1 win over Miami, Locke fits in quite well. Avoiding the major trouble that has plagued him at times this season, Locke tossed 5 2/3 shutout innings to pick up his first victory in nearly six weeks and extend Pittsburgh’s winning streak to five.

Charlie Morton spent much of the offseason waiting for his surgically repaired hip to heal and most of spring training waiting for his form to return. When it didn’t, the Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander went on a six-week journey to rebuild his delivery from the ground up. ”I think it was just a relief,” Morton said.

When we think about Giancarlo Stanton, baseball’s $325 million man, the first things that come to mind include: “Damn, that guy hits baseballs really far ” or “Man, that dude’s contract is huuuuuuuge .” We don’t usually think about his defense in right field. But Stanton, actually, is pretty good in the outfield and he proved it Monday for the Miami Marlins, making a stellar leaping catch in which he clanged into the right-field wall at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park. From the sound of it, you might think Stanton was hurt. His impact with the fence was that loud.  Stanton emerged from the play just fine, with the ball and the inning’s third out. Credit to Stanton here, he had no problem going face-first into the fence, a scary proposition, especially considering his 2014 season ended with a fastball to the face , which led to fractures and surgery. In the next inning, Stanton was back to the relationship we most know him for having with fences. He launched a homer over that same right-field fence. That’s Giancarlo Stanton 2, right-field fence 0. More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mike Oz is the editor of Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

During a 20-batter stretch in Sunday’s victory at Detroit, every hitter for the Houston Astros either reached base or struck out. The Astros beat the Tigers 10-8 in that game, striking out 15 times but also hitting a pair of home runs and rallying from a four-run deficit in the sixth inning. Houston now leads its division by 6 1/2 games and has the second-best record in the American League – but to say the Astros have an unusual offense would be an understatement.
