Vintage Grady Sizemore showed up to Tropicana Field on Friday as the Rays opened up an interleague series against the Mets. The 33-year-old broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning with a solo home run off of Jacob deGrom, then robbed Wilmer Flores of a game-tying solo home run to left field in the sixth.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.
Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.
Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.
The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
