• Yankees 5 Minnesota 1: It should have been a great night at the ballpark. Roger Clemens became only the 8th pitcher to win 350 games and Bobby Abreu hit a monster home run, into the middle of the upper-deck in right, but it was all overshadowed by A-Rod.

    This wasn’t about his wife’s t-shirt or a dramatic play on the field, but the sight of A-Rod grabbing his right leg after running to first in the sixth inning. A-Rod stayed in the game momentarily, but left after one more batter when Larry Bowa came over and convinced him to sit down. The team announced it was a hamstring strain, but after the game a dejected A-Rod told the press that he would have to see what his hamstring felt like in the morning, but he wasn’t hopeful The Yankees can ill-afford to lose their best hitter right now.

  • Colorado 6 Mets 2: The Rockies made quick work of Tom Glavine, jumping on him for six runs in the third inning as they cruised to an easy win in the series opener.
  • Brooklyn 6 Aberdeen 3 (10 innings): The Cyclones lost their lead in the ninth, only to explode for four runs in the tenth to turn Stephen Cline into the winning pitcher.
  • Hudson Valley 5 Staten Island 4: The Baby Bombers made it close in the end, but they could only manage five hits against the Renegades.
