Mets top Padres behind big game from Cano

Robinson Cano surprisingly led the New York Mets to a 5-2 win over the San Diego Padres at Citi Field on Tuesday.

The second baseman went four for four and hit three home runs in the victory. He also drove in all five of his team's runs.

The Mets also received a solid pitching performance from Jason Vargas, who totalled eight strikeouts in six innings of work. 

The Padres only managed five hits and have struggled as of late. They have lost four of their past five and have dropped to 47-53 this season. New York, on the other hand, now hold a 46-54 record.

Caleb Smith notched nine strikeouts in seven innings in a 5-1 victory for the Miami Marlins against the Chicago White Sox.

Trevor Bauer tallied nine strikeouts as the Cleveland Indians fell to the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 in 10 innings.

Trea Turner went four for five with two RBIs as the Washington Nationals dominated the Colorado Rockies 11-1.

Didi Gregorius had a game to remember. He went five for five with two runs scored and seven RBIs in the New York Yankees' thrilling 14-12 10-inning win over the Minnesota Twins.


Miserable Moran

Colin Moran went 0 for four with three strikeouts in the Pittsburgh Pirates' 4-3 loss to the St Louis Cardinals.
