The New York Mets five-game losing streak came to an end after defeating the Washington Nationals 5-3 in MLB. New York scored four runs in the first three innings to take a lead they would never relinquish against Washington on Monday. It was a nice distraction from earlier headlines, which included questions surrounding manager Mickey Callaway’s job and a non-baseball related injury to Yoenis Cespedes.

The St. Louis Cardinals on Monday requested unconditional release waivers on right-hander Luke Gregerson in a move that means they will recoup very little on their $11 million investment in the veteran reliever. The Cardinals signed Gregerson to a two-year deal before the 2018 season, but he pitched just 12 2/3 innings last season because of hamstring and shoulder issues. After posting a 7.11 ERA last year, the 35-year-old had a 7.94 mark in six appearances this year in a delayed start to the season because of lingering shoulder trouble.
