NEW YORK (AP) — Harrison Bader broke a scoreless tie with an infield single in the eighth inning and Edwin Díaz earned his first save at Citi Field since October 2022 as the New York Mets edged the Kansas City Royals 2-1. Mets rookie Jose Buttó and Royals starter Cole Ragans matched zeros for six innings in a crisp pitchers’ duel. New York stranded nine runners over the first seven innings before Kansas City reliever Chris Stratton walked the bases loaded in the eighth. With two outs, Bader hit a slow roller toward third and Maikel Garcia was unable to make a barehand pickup. Stratton then walked Brandon Nimmo on four pitches, giving the Mets a 2-0 lead. Díaz gave up a homer in the ninth before getting his third save this season.

NEW YORK (AP) — Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez left a game against the New York Mets with injuries to his left groin and hip following a fourth-inning collision at home plate with Starling Marte. Marte attempted to tag up and score on Tyrone Taylor’s lineout to left. MJ Melendez’s throw beat Marte, who slid and appeared to hit Perez in his midsection. Perez held on to the ball for the final out but was slow to get up. Perez walked off the field slowly and was replaced by Freddy Fermin in the bottom of the fifth.

PHOENIX (AP) — Zac Gallen pitched six sharp innings and Corbin Carroll hit a two-run single in a five-run fifth to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks over the St. Louis Cardinals 5-0. Gallen threw 90 pitches, giving up four hits and walking two. He struck out seven, two of them coming with a runner on third and one out. The right-hander caught Brandon Crawford looking on a full count with the bases loaded in the second and then got a grounder to escape the jam. Gallen also whiffed Ivan Herrera on a 3-2 curve in the fourth before retiring Crawford on a popup. St. Louis starter Miles Mikolas faced the minimum through four innings but didn’t finish the fifth.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Jackson Holliday delivered his first big league hit in the seventh inning, then scored the tiebreaking run to help the Baltimore Orioles avoid a sweep with a 6-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Holliday, baseball’s top-ranked prospect, struck out in his first two at-bats and was 0 for 13 with nine Ks since his call-up before he singled with the Orioles down 4-3 in the seventh. Gunnar Henderson followed with a tying single, and then Holliday scored when Adley Rutschman bounced into a double play. Colton Cowser went deep the following inning for Baltimore’s third solo homer of the day. Milwaukee went 2 for 17 with runners in scoring position.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Scottie Scheffler is the Masters champion for the second time in three years. And once again, it wasn't particularly close. Scheffler grabbed the lead for good with magnificent shots around the turn. And then he let Ludvig Aberg, Collin Morikawa and Max Homa make all the mistakes. Scheffler closed with a 68 for a four-shot victory. He's the fourth-youngest player to have two green jackets. And he stretches his lead at No. 1 in the world to levels not seen since the peak years of Tiger Woods. Scheffler now has three wins in his last four starts.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Tiger Woods finished the Masters on Sunday wtih a 16-over 304, his highest 72-hole score ever in a career that spans three decades. All of that hardly mattered to the crowd. The 48-year-old Woods, who is still dealing with the effects of numerous surgeries that have impacted his body and limited his playing time on the PGA Tour, received a huge ovation after he pitched onto the green on No. 18 and made par while wearing his traditional Sunday red. Woods went 82-77 on the weekend. Despite the score, Woods called it a “good week” and said he plans to begin preparing for the other three majors including the PGA Championship in May, the U.S. Open in June and the British Open in July.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Chase Elliott pulled ahead and cleared Ross Chastain on the first lap after the second restart in overtime at Texas Motor Speedway, ending a 42-race winless streak for NASCAR’s most popular driver. The race ended on the 16th caution after Elliott had taken the white flag for the 276th lap in a race scheduled for 267 laps. The chasing Chastain was bumped from behind by defending race winner William Byron, who finished third. Brad Keselowski was second. It was the fifth win this season for Hendrick Motorsports, the 306th for NASCAR’s winningest team. It was the first for Elliott in the No. 9 since Talladega in October 2022.

UTICA, N.Y. (AP) — Danielle Serdachny converted a rebound in front 5:16 into overtime for a power-play goal and Canada beat the United States 6-5 in a breathtaking women’s world hockey championship gold medal game. Canada won its tournament-leading 13ths gold medal and did so on U.S. soil in central New York, a year after the Americans won their 10th tournament outside of Toronto. Canadian captain Marie-Philip Poulin scored twice, Julia Gosling also scored, while Erin Ambrose and Emily Clark had shots bank into the net off U.S. defenseman Caroline Harvey. Harvey and Laila Edwards had a goal and assist for the Americans who finished the tournament 6-1.
