Bartolo Colon pitched into the 7th, finishing with 6 2/3 solid innings to earn the 6-3 decision for the Mets in San Diego. But most of all, he broke the internet with the first home run of his career that became one of the most joyful moments in recent baseball history.

Aaron Hill slammed three homers, including a 2 run shot that brought the Brewers to within one, a solo blast that tied the game in the 8th and a 10th inning grand slam that was the difference in the 13-7 slug-fest against the Reds.

Ian Kennedy slowed down a red hot Indians team with 7 shutout frames, allowing only 4 hits and 2 walks and got the 7-0 victory for the defending champ Royals.

Robinson Cano hit a pair of homers, including a go ahead blast in the tenth. He added two more hits for ten total bases and led the Mariners past Houston, 3-2.

Washington Nationals Victor Robles leading impressive prospect brigade

Deep down on the Washington Nationals farm, there is an exciting trio atop the Hagerstown Suns lineup. Victor Robles, Max Schrock and Kelvin Gutierrez are lighting up the Sally in an offensive barrage that has the Suns sitting at 18-9 heading into the final two games of the weekend.

The Hagerstown Trio sounds more like a 1920s jazz group that an upstart gang of prospects. That is exactly what they are. All three are in the top ten in the South Atlantic League in batting average, and they combine to litter the top ten in nearly every other statistical category.

So, who are they?

Leading off for the Suns is who is widely considered their third best prospect in the system. While all eyes are on the 2016 arrival dates of Lucas Giolito (or right now, what is wrong with him) and Trea Turner, Victor Robles has etched…

The rise of New York Yankees Domingo Acevedo must be for real

Wayne Cavadi

Luis Severino’s recent struggles have brought up eerie, unpleasant memories for New York Yankees fans. Phil Hughes. Joba Chamberlain. Ian Kennedy. Ivan Nova. Manny Banuelos. Andrew Brackman. The past five years have heard the Yankees brass convincing people that their next ace was on the horizon, that their pitching prospects were indeed elite. The sad truth is that not since Andy Pettitte have the Yankees produced a starting pitcher with any sort of staying power.

Severino is going through a rough patch, there is no doubt. By no means should the Yankees give up on him; however, he is in desperate need of adjustments. He has poor command of the strike zone, and his fastball, although fast, doesn’t seem to miss too many bats. Those adjustments were needed by plenty of the Yankees top pitching prospects before him, but none seemed to make…
