MLB:

NY Mets 7, Phillies 1-After throwing 131 pitches in his previous start, A. J. Burnett had nothing in the tank Monday night as the Mets cruised to an early lead and easy win. Burnett gave up four first-inning runs, and a three-run homer in the fifth by former Phillies farmhand Travis d’Arnaud as the Mets romped. Carlos Ruiz doubled in the Phillies’ only run in the eighth. The Phils lost despite out-hitting the Mets 13-9. The series continues Tuesday night.

Pirates 5, San Francisco 0-The Bucs broke out of the gate with four runs in the first inning and never struggled while winning the opener of a seven-game western trip. Gabby Sanchez, Neil Walker, Russell Martin, and Gregory Polanco each drove in first-inning runs. Vance Worley pitched a complete game shutout as the Pirates improved to 56-49. Josh Harrison hit his seventh homer for the Pirates. The series continues Tuesday night.

Tuesday: LA Angels at Orioles
