NEW YORK (AP) Muttering on his way back to the dugout, it was clear Bryce Harper was miffed.

Moments later, the fans who had been heckling him at Citi Field saw just how mad he really was.

Harper bolted from the bench , wildly pointing and yelling while confronting the plate umpire after being ejected, and it took three Philadelphia Phillies to harness the enraged slugger Monday night in a 5-1 loss to the New York Mets.


Red Sox's Eovaldi to have elbow surgery

BOSTON (AP) Boston right-hander Nathan Eovaldi is scheduled to have surgery to remove loose bodies from his pitching elbow, an operation expected to sideline the pitcher for four-to-six weeks.

Arenado hits 1K mark, Rockies win again

DENVER (AP) No. 1,000 was nothing new for Nolan Arenado.

Arenado hit a tiebreaking homer for his 1,000th career hit and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Washington Nationals 7-5 Monday night.


Urshela's hit get Yanks by Angels in 14

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Gio Urshela singled home Gleyber Torres in the 14th with his second extra-inning RBI of the night, and the New York Yankees blew a 12th-inning lead before rallying for their fourth consecutive win, 4-3 over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday.

Torres reached base on catcher Jonathan Lucroy's throwing error after striking out leading off the 14th, and he advanced on a wild pitch by Luke Bard (0-1) and stole third before he was driven home by Urshela. The journeyman infielder produced his first multi-RBI game since last May.


Fowler sparks Cards' rout of Brewers

ST. LOUIS (AP) When Barry Bonds gives hitting advice, Dexter Fowler listens.

Rockies place Freeland on injured list

DENVER (AP) Colorado Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland was placed on the 10-day injured list because of a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand.

Freeland pitched two-hit ball over six scoreless innings Thursday is a 6-2 win over Philadelphia. The 25-year-old's outing was cut short after 86 pitches because of the blister.


Yanks cut LHP Gonzalez, sign INF Miller

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Gio Gonzalez was released Monday from his minor league contract with the New York Yankees.

The 33-year-old left-hander agreed to the deal in mid-March. If added to the 40-man roster, he would have received a $3 million salary while in the major leagues and the chance to earn $9 million in performance bonuses: $300,000 for each start through 30.


Polanco leads surging Twins by Astros

HOUSTON (AP) After Jorge Polanco's start to the season, Twins manager Rocco Baldelli is running out of things to say about his young shortstop.

Polanco had four hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in four runs to lead Minnesota to its fourth straight win, 9-5 over the Houston Astros on Monday night.


P Burdi hurt in Pirates' loss to Arizona

PITTSBURGH (AP) Nick Burdi's combination of grit and resilience - oh and a fastball that can touch triple digits - helped the Pittsburgh Pirates reliever carve out a spot in the big leagues less than two years removed from Tommy John surgery on his right arm.

One innocent-looking pitch to Arizona's Jarrod Dyson on Monday night likely signaled another abrupt turn in Burdi's roller coaster career and the Diamondbacks' 12-4 comeback victory.
