RF Yasiel Puig tried to shrug off the frustration he caused the Mets Wednesday with a leisurely run around the bases after his three-run home run. He said he went to the plate motivated because Mets starter Tyler Pill had walked Joc Pederson before he came to the plate. "They elected to pitch to me instead of (Joc)," Puig said. "They thought it would be the same result as my first at-bat (a grounder to third). They figured I was an easier out." Said Mets outfielder Jay Bruce: "He is very, very talented, but he's not David Ortiz. He doesn't have 500 home runs. He's been a topic of conversation since he's been in the major leagues, so I'm never surprised by anything he does."

LHP Julio Urias, the Dodgers' top pitching prospect who was 5-2 last season, will return to Los Angeles for medical tests related to an inflamed left shoulder. Urias, who was sent to Triple-A Oklahoma City after struggling early this season, was put on the OKC DL more than a week ago. Initial tests did not find any structural damage. "We don't have anything definitive to share at this point on Julio," Dodgers GM Andrew Friedman told the L.A. Times. "We are actively talking through it and will hopefully have something more substantive to report."
