2006_04_syankeeslogo.jpg-Yankees 6, Blue Jays 3: Bobby Abreu's home run and Johnny Damon's run-saving catch helped the Yankees down -- and elminate -- the Blue Jays in Tuesday's win. The Yankees reduced their magic number for clinching the American League East to one. That's one Yankees win or Red Sox loss. Home-field advantage is still at stake for the Yanks -- they lead Detroit by two games -- but Joe Torre will use an early clinch to set his rotation and rest his regulars. Torre also thinks Mariano Rivera could pitch again by the weekend. The strained ligament in Rivera's elbow got the closer some much-needed rest. He's vital -- of course -- to the Yankees' playoff chances.

-Mets 3, Marlins 2: After clinching the division title Monday, the only suspense left for the Mets after they is the identity of their Game 4 starter and their Division Series opponent. Some players might wonder if they'll get in the lineup, too. Tom Glavine pitched well -- a good sign, to be sure -- but the Mets' lineup included no regulars. Expect more of that as the season winds down.
