Max Scherzer and Bartolo Colon are headed to the All-Star Game, picked as replacements for other pitchers originally selected for the National League team.

Syndergaard, pitching with a bone spur in his right elbow that he has called "pretty insignificant", stepped off the rubber with two outs in the fifth and a 2-2 count on Jayson Werth. "Then when I found out that he indeed was chosen to go to the All-Star Game, I was excited, excited for our organization, and Max was excited". It's not quite to Murphy's extent, but the one they used to call Droobs is now 12-for-39 (.308) with three homers in 11 games against the Nats in 2016. He was described as day-to-day by manager Dusty Baker on Thursday, but Baker said the possibility of Zimmerman requiring an extended absence if he aggravated the injury, coupled with the Nationals playing with a three-man bench Thursday, factored into the decision to place Zimmerman on the disabled list. Mets starter Noah Syndergaard and slugger Yoenis Cespedes left early with injuries - hours after New York announced that struggling pitcher Matt Harvey will have season-ending surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome.

John Jaso's RBI single tied the score at 4 and chased Arrieta (12-4), who had beaten the Pirates in all three previous starts this season and entered with a 9-1 career record against them.

RHP Lucas Giolito was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, one day after he struggled against the Mets in his second big league start.

Set to pitch on Saturday for the Nationals, Scherzer will be available to work for the NL in the limited roles assigned to pitchers in this event.

Red Sox 6, Rays 5: David Ortiz hit his 21st homer, powering Boston to its fourth win in five games. He returned from an upper back strain Sunday against Cincinnati.

With Chase d'Arnaud on second base and Gordon Beckham on first, Atlanta's Freddie Freeman hit a soft liner off Chicago's Chris Sale that rookie shortstop Tim Anderson trapped. He's already passed his career-high in homers and is now just 18 away from his best ever RBI total and he's only played 85 games. But there's a lot of risk for Stephen since he just came off the DL and you don't know how he's going to come through this game tonight. "So everybody decided it'd be better that he doesn't start or pitch". He also beat out Colorado rookie shortstop Trevor Story, Arizona third baseman Jake Lamb and Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun.
