- Yankees 8, Orioles 7: Way back on June 28th, the game between the Yankees and Orioles was suspended in the 8th inning with New York up 8-6. Last night, the two teams continued the June game with Mariano Rivera allowing one Baltimore run to make things exciting in the 9th before picking up what is officially his 10th save of the season.
- Orioles 4, Yankees 2: In the regularly scheduled game last night, the Yankees were unable to drive in the key runs to beat the Orioles. The Yankees had 5 runners at 3rd base over the course of the game, but were unable to plate any of them. Andy Pettitte had a solid game that consisted of one bad inning, which was all Baltimore needed. Pettitte allowed three runs in the 3rd inning when he allowed three hits and two walks. On the positive side, he did retire the last 12 batters he faced.
- Nationals 6, Mets 2: It's the games against the bad teams that the Mets need to win if they want to keep their minuscule lead in the NL East. Unfortunately, they couldn't muster up much offense last night against Washington. Moises Alou went 1-4 including a double and a run scored in his return to the team, but that wasn't nearly enough to bail out Jorge Sosa. Sosa allowed 5 runs over 6 innings and had the Mets in a hole from the 2nd inning. The Mets and Nationals play a day-night doubleheader Saturday with Mike Pelfrey pitching in one game and Orlando Hernandez in the other.
- Lake Monsters 1, Cyclones 0 (10 innings): The Cyclones lost an exciting game in the 10th inning when Vermont scored the go-ahead run with a bases loaded walk. A scary moment came in the bottom of the 10th when Cyclones 2nd baseman J.R. Voyles had to be carried off the field after being hit in the head by a pitch.
- S.I. Yankees 2, Valley Cats 0 (6 innings): The Baby Bombers defeated Tri-City when the game was called due to rain. One has to wonder why the June 28th game of their big-league affiliate wasn't called due to rain as well.
