Devin Mesoraco continued tearing the cover off the ball, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored against the Cubs on Sunday.
Mesoraco slapped his sixth double of the year to go with two singles. Mesoraco started the year on the disabled list, but all he's done since returning is hit .515/.553/.970 with at least one hit in each of his nine games. That includes six multi-hit games.
Jay Bruce went 2-for-5 with a home run in the Reds' win over the Cubs on Sunday.
Bruce got to Cubs reliever Jose Veras for the solo shot, his third of the year. It was his 10th RBI on the year. He started slow out of the gate, but Bruce has five hits in his last two games and could be heating up. When hot, he's one of the most dangerous power hitters in the game.
The Mets are expected to recall Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

The 40-year-old outfielder has been ripping the cover off the ball in the minor leagues, hitting .395 with a homer and nine RBI in his first 15 games. It's unclear how he'll be used, but he remains an intriguing option for NL-only leagues.
