- Yankees 4 Red Sox 3: Boston will still win the AL East and will probably have the best record in all of baseball, but the Yankees have shown that they can beat them when it counts. After starting the season 1-5 against Boston, New York won the season series by going 9-3 in the final 12 games.
Sunday’s win was a flashback to the old days. Derek Jeter had the big hit, Roger Clemens had a great start and Mariano Rivera got the save. The win was huge for New York as it kept the Yankees 2-1/2 games ahead of Detroit with 13 left to play.
- Phillies 10 Mets 6: What we do know is that the Mets don’t want to face the Phillies in the NLCS. After all, they lost 12-of-18 against them in the regular season, including the last seven when it mattered. But, that doesn’t mean they are going to lose the division. Despite getting swept this weekend, the Mets still have a 3-1/2 game lead with two weeks to go and almost all of their remaining games against Florida and Washington.
- Green Bay 35 Giants 13: If you see the Giants’ defense please alert the authorities. It is considered missing and extremely harmless. More on this game later today in Gothamist.
- Baltimore 20 Jets 13: One question, would Chad have tied things up? More on this game later today.
