  • Mets 3 Braves 2: The Mets have chosen an opportune time to get hot. Not only are they bounding closer to their second-consecutive division crown (a first for the franchise) they are putting an end to the Braves’ playoff hopes.

    Oliver Perez improved to 4-1 against Atlanta this season, throwing seven strong innings allowing only two runs and striking out seven. David Wright continued his quest to become a 30-30 player with his 28th home run in the sixth, a two-run shot that scored Jose Reyes. Reyes also scored the first Mets run and stole his 75th base of the year.

    This may be the final week of meaningful games at Shea until October. With two more games against Atlanta and a weekend series with Philadelphia, the Mets can effectively end the NL East this week and spend the remainder of the season getting ready for October.

  • Brooklyn 3 Staten Island 1 The Cyclones advanced to the NY-Penn League Championships by sweeping the Baby Bombers.
  • Now we know why Randy Moss was so open!: Apparently the Patriots engaged in a bit of espionage on Sunday against the Jets. This news will probably not help ease relations between the two rivals.
  • Eli’s ok, or maybe he isn’t: Pick the story you prefer, but it is at least rumored that Eli will miss a month which means the Giants are in big trouble.
