Bryce Harper was moved to the leadoff spot for the first time in five years and responded with a three-run homer to break a 5-for-36 slump in the Nationals' 12-4 pounding of the Pirates.

Newcomb is 1-1 with a 2.78 ERA in four career starts against the Mets. Sure, Vargas will probably bounce back after his horrendous first start, but that doesn't change the fact that he gave up nine runs in just 3.2 innings against a subpar Padres team.

Daniel Descalso atoned for a big error by providing a go-ahead, two-run triple in the seventh inning to send the Diamondbacks to their fifth win in six games, 4-3 over the Dodgers.
