Okay, maybe calling Neil Walker a trophy thief is a bit brash. Technically the guy won it fair and square. And I may be the only person in the world that would call the second baseman a jerk. After all, he's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet on the diamond. But as I set the plot, you can share with me for a second, my plight.

It was Nov. 22, 2003.

Neil Walker homered twice in his return to his hometown, Jacob deGrom gave New York's bullpen a needed rest and the Mets beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1 on Friday night.

The Pittsburgh Kid homered twice and deGrom tossed 8.1 innings of 10 strikeout ball, so there was not much cause for optimism for the Pirates that night.

Adam Frazier (2-2) continued his tear Wednesday night, leading the Pirates with a home run and three RBIs, while a back-to-back-to-back home run cavalcade in the 10th inning from Jose Osuna, David Freese and Jordy Mercer helped push Pittsburgh over Atlanta, 12-5.

ATLANTA—Clint Hurdle was managing to get one run in the 10th inning.

Matt Adams hit a two-run shot in his second start since being traded to Atlanta, Ender Inciarte had a career-high five hits and the Braves beat Gerrit Cole and the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on Monday night.

Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel each scored, while the Third Line was responsible for nine combined points as the Penguins stomped the Ottawa Senators, 7-0 in Game Five of the Eastern Conference Finals Sunday afternoon.

Forget about any momentum you thought Ottawa had.

David Freese was hit with a pitch with the bases loaded to account for the lone run as the Pirates blanked the Phillies 1-0 on Sunday afternoon at PNC Park.

Ivan Nova carved out his third win of the season, going 7.1 innings on three earned runs, nine hits and three strikeouts, while David Freese and Adam Frazier carried the offense in a Saturday afternoon breeze.

In honor of the 142nd Preakness Stakes, Ivan Nova surely channeled his inner-Cloud Computing Saturday afternoon.

Jeremy Hellickson allowed just two hits over six innings before leaving with an injury and the Philadelphia Phillies pulled away from the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-2 on Friday night to end a four-game losing streak.
