NEW YORK (AP) Star Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard was scratched from his start Thursday against the Atlanta Braves because of what manager Terry Colins said was minor discomfort in his biceps.

Matt Harvey was moved up a day and took the mound on five days' rest - his scheduled turn before Tuesday's rainout. Harvey also pitched on short notice last Friday in place of Jacob deGrom, who missed a start with a stiff neck.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Just a few bob-and-weaves from the Rocky Balboa statue, the NFL set the stage for the draft that turned a chunk of the city into gridlock for future stars of the gridiron.
