• Mets 4 Braves 3: This was a big statement game from the Mets. Not only did they come back from a 3-1 deficit late in the game, they pulled a remarkable escape in the ninth to preserve the win.

    Luis Castillo tied things up in the seventh with a two-out single and Moises Alou put the Mets ahead with a home run on an 0-2 pitch in the eighth. So, the Mets turned to Billy Wagner, but the first three Atlanta batters reached base, leaving no margin for error. But, Wagner induced Jeff Francoeur to hit a ground ball which David Wright went home on for the first out. Then, Andruw Jones grounded into a double-play and the Mets had a victory and a 4-1/2 game lead in the division.

  • Toronto 15 Yankees 4: Perhaps the best way to sum up this disaster is to point out that Kyle Farnsworth was the only Yankees’ pitcher who pitched well.
  • Brooklyn sweeps: The Cyclones took both ends of the doubleheader by the same score 2-0. The Scrappers only managed six hits over the course of the evening as six Brooklyn pitchers kept them quiet.
  • Staten Island Splits: The Baby Bombers finished off their suspended game with a 10-2 win, but dropped the nightcap 6-3. Staten Island had a 3-0 lead, but Adam Olbrychowski gave up five runs in five innings.
