  • Yankees 12 Blue Jays 11 (10 innings): What could have been one of the more painful losses of the season turned into a very satisfying win. Down 3-1, the Yankees rallied to a 6-3 lead, only to fall behind 8-6. Once again, the bats responded, putting New York ahead 9-8, but Toronto jumped ahead again 11-9 in the eighth. The Yankees had another rally in them and tied things up in the bottom of the inning thanks to a two-run single by Melky Cabrera.

    That’s where things stood until the 10th when Cabrera singled home the winning run with two outs. It capped a five-RBI day for Melky and ended a game that lasted an excruciating five hours. In the end, the Yankees used 10 pitchers, Toronto used 8 and with the Detroit loss New York’s magic number is three for the wild card.

  • Mets 7 Florida 2: The Mets are doing what they need to, now if only Philadelphia would lose a game again. New York got a great start from Oliver Perez and 3 RBI’s from Ramon Castro to lower their magic number to seven.
  • Red Bulls 2 New England 2: The Red Bulls got a late goal from Juan Pablo Angel to tie things up. Angel’s goal was his 16th and tied a franchise record for goals in a season.
