    Cole allowed two solo home runs -- both to Yordan Alvarez -- but otherwise held Houston without an extra-base hit.

    Mets' Trevor May: Earns second hold
    36m ago

    May pitched a perfect eighth inning while striking out two to secure a hold in the win against the Cardinals on Thursday.

    May has been near perfect this season. He has a 1.59 ERA in 11.1 innings and his only earned runs allowed came in his first appearance this season. Edwin Diaz has been inconsistent and banged up at times, which could lead to May receiving some save opportunities in the future. The 31-year-old is the most consistent pitcher in the Mets bullpen so far this season.

Gallinari should continue providing solid points and three-pointers along with low-end rebounds, assists and steals off the bench the rest of the way, though his field-goal percentage may be sporadic.

    22m ago

    Collins tallied 25 points (10-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 29 minutes during Thursday's 133-126 loss to the Pacers.

    The 23-year-old bounced back Wednesday's nine-point effort to post the most points he's scored since March 26. Collins hasn't been his normal dominant self since returning from a nine-game absence due to a left ankle sprain, but he's averaging a serviceable 15.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 0.6 blocks over his last 12 games. The fourth-year forward will look to build on Thursday's impressive bounce-back performance Monday at home against the Wizards.

Bogdanovic is having a stellar season in his first year in Atlanta, averaging career highs in points, rebounds, three-pointers and blocks through 41 games.

    Maple Leafs' Wayne Simmonds: Dry spell continues
    2m ago

    Maple Leafs' Alex Kerfoot: Versatility will help in postseason
    20m ago

    Kerfoot has four points (two goals, two assists) in his last 14 games.

    Kerfoot's fantasy impact has been limited this year with just eight goals and 21 points in 53 games. But the usual third-line center's versatility puts him in a great spot heading toward the postseason. Kerfoot can slide over the wing and up the lineup in a pinch if there's an injury.
