Mets pitcher Dillon Gee is Sunday's Player of the Day. Gee pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings and struck out six in the 2-0 win over the Nationals.
Rangers pitcher Justin Grimm is American League Player of the Day. Grimm struck out nine over six innings in the 11-3 win over the Mariners.
Eric Kratz of the Phillies is National League Batter of the Day. Kratz hit a three-run homer and went 2-for-4 in the 7-3 win over the Cardinals.
No AL batter was named Player of the Game, so no bonus points were awarded Sunday for AL Batter of the Day. It was a pitching-dominated day Sunday, as only two batters were named Players of the Game in the 16 games played.
Gee receives 2.0 Box-Toppers points for being named Player of the Day. Grimm receives 1.7 for AL Player of the Day. Kratz receives 1.5 points for NL Batter of the Day.
