2006_04_syankeeslogo.jpg-Yankees 4, Braves 3: With his team trailing by a run, Derek Jeter grounded out to start the bottom of the 12th inning. But Jason Giambi walked and Alex Rodriguez hit a game-winning, two-run homer to let the Yankees escape with a series win over the stumbling Braves. Rodriguez's hit may silence critics who say his performance has declined in critical situations. For those who aren't sure clutch hitting exists, Rodriguez's homer could mean less, but it nevertheless helped the Yankees avoid another disappointing loss.

-Red Sox 10, Mets 2: Pedro Martinez's first start at Fenway Park as a Met didn't go well for him. He allowed eight runs in three innings as Boston romped past the Red Sox for the second sraight night. After another misplay, Lastings Milledge will be seeing the Green Monster in his sleep, but the Mets' inability to check the Boston offense hurt them for the second straight night. The Mets, like most National League teams, are happy they don't play in the AL.

-Red Bulls 0, Crew 0: The World Cup had its first off-day on Wednesday as Richie Williams coached the Red Bulls for the first time. They picked up a point in a way that has become familiar: the draw. With eight draws in 13 matches, New York has struggled to control matches. At least they haven't lost eight times in 13 games.
