Meet the first place Mets: New York ties Nationals following sweep

Take a look around the league with Big League Stew's daily wrap up. We'll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats.

For the first time in what seems like a long time, the New York Mets are in first place in August. The team moved into a tie with the Washington Nationals after a 5-2 victory Sunday.

[Friday Daily Fantasy contest: Turn $5 into $5K]

It was an impressive series for New York. The Mets swept Washington, holding the Nationals to just five runs over the three-game series. The series also featured the redemption of Wilmer Flores, who was nearly traded earlier in the week. 

Noah Syndergaard played the hero Sunday. The righty went eight innings, giving up two runs on eight hits. He struck out nine and did not issue any walks during the contest.

Syndergaard was backed by Curtis Granderson, Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda. All three players went yard against Jordan Zimmermann in the third inning, giving the Mets the 5-1 lead. 

Between Syndergaard, Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, the Mets should have a formidable rotation if they can make it to a playoff series. 

With the win, the Mets improved to 55-50 on the year.

ETHIER PLAYS THE HERO

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier managed to play the hero Sunday against the Los Angeles Angels. Ethier picked up the game-winning hit during the team's 5-3 win.

With the game tied 3-3 at end of the ninth, Ethier had to wait until extra innings to strike. He got his first chance in the bottom of the 10th inning.

Ethier stepped to the plate with a man on first and one out during the frame. On the third pitch of the at-bat, Ethier smashed an 82 mph changeup from Drew Rucinski out to right center for the walk-off home run.

While that was the most impressive hit of the game from Ethier, it wasn't his first home run. Ethier actually gave the Dodgers the lead with a solo home run in the eighth. Overall, it was a pretty great day for the veteran.

With the win, the Dodgers improved to 60-45 on the season.

ATHLETICS WALK IT OFF

The Oakland Athletics pulled off a walk-off win Sunday against the Cleveland Indians. In the 10th inning, Mark Canha played the hero in the 2-1 victory.

[Check out Big League Stew on Tumblr for even more baseball awesomeness.]

Canha managed to do his damage against Indians closer Cody Allen. With a man on first, Canha stepped to the plate against Allen. 

On the fifth pitch of the at-bat, Canha smacked a 93 mph fastball out to left. Sam Fuld was able to score from first on the play, giving Canha the game-winning double. 

Following the game, Canha was part of the usual post walk-off celebration. Turns out, it's not as glamorous as it looks.

With the win, the Athletics improved to 47-59 on the year.

SEATTLE PULLS IT OFF

The Seattle Mariners pulled off a late win Sunday against the Minnesota Twins. Seattle scored three runs in extras, giving the club the 4-1 win.

The big inning came against the Twins newest reliever Kevin Jepsen. Jepsen walked the first two batters in the 11th inning, opening the door for Seattle.

They would come through. Logan Morrison doubled in one run, giving the Mariners the 2-1 lead. The Mariners weren't finished, however.

Austin Jackson would add a two-run single later in the frame. With the Mariners up 4-1, Tom Wilhelmsen came on to pick up the save.

He was successful. After giving up a leadoff double, Wilhelmsen managed to pick up the next three outs with ease. 

With the win, Seattle improved to 48-58 on the year.

Michael Jordan (and kid) bests Jimmy Butler (and kid) at a shooting competition (Video)

It’s August, and in the days before school starts it’s also time for basketball camps. To sit cross-legged n a hardwood floor while hoping that everyone else notices the shoes that you mortgaged way, way too much of your allowance to buy while watching a shooting drill as presented by an assistant coach you’ve never heard of.

[Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball]

Or, if you’re lucky, a fringe NBA player. Or, if you’re really, really lucky, the NBA’s Most Improved Player and the greatest basketball player of all time.

Watch Chicago’s Jimmy Butler and Bulls legend Michael Jordan wow the kids at Jordan’s camp, with You Know Who winning things as always:

Unless you have a real soft spot for Ben Gordon’s work off the bench on the 2004-05 Bulls (and, hey, we kind of do), Butler is the best shooting guard the Bulls have had since Jordan retired following the 1997-98 season.

We’d say that this served as some extra motivation for the current Charlotte Hornets owner to take down Butler in a shooting display with two young campers, but with Jordan you get the feeling he’d try to beat his own Aunt Pearl in a game of Knockout and then Around the World before demanding that she come back to the court for a game of 21.

(Thanks to Matt Moore at CBS Sports for the heads-up.)

Maple Leafs re-sign Jonathan Bernier for two years, $8.3M; avoid arb ruling

New Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello had his first big contract test with Jonathan Bernier. Well, his first big test with his new team. In the arbitration hearing, Lamoriello shot waaaaay low. Bernier shot high with their asking prices. 

And in the end, both ended up settling on their own terms for two years at $8.3 million, which comes to $4.15 million per-year. The Leafs asked for $2.89 million in the arb case, while Bernier went for $5.1 million.

The hearing took place Friday.

Fair? Not fair? He had a 2.87 goals against average last season. He had a .912 save percentage. But the Maple Leafs were horrible. As Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston notes, this isn’t exactly ‘break the bank’ money. This is the 24th largest salary cap hit amongst goaltenders in the NHL.

His prior contract was for two years at $5.8 million.

[Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today!]

The Maple Leafs also filed for arbitration on Bernier, and not vice-versa, so the thought was such a hearing would give Toronto more leverage. Maybe that wasn’t as much of the case? If the arbitrator ruled, it would have been for one year – and Bernier would have been an unrestricted free agent next summer, rather than in two years. 

Regardless, Bernier now gets two years to prove that he’s a legit starter – which is kind of mind blowing for a guy who is 26. And if Bernier finally shows his prodigious talent that made him the No. 11 overall pick in the 2006 draft – he also had a .923 save percentage with the Leafs in 2013-14 – then Toronto has a steal on its roster. Or at least a moderately priced trading chip if a contending team needs a goaltender off a rebuilding group.

And then Bernier can cash in on UFA status in two years. 

So really, when you get down to it, this is a pretty decent deal for all parties involved. Maybe that Lou does know what he’s doing after all.
