2006_04_smetslogo.jpg - Marlins 4, Mets 1: Pedro Martinez was strong in his 2nd start since coming off the disabled list, but the Mets offense was unable to offer him much run support off of Dontrelle Willis and the Marlins. Pedro pitched six innings and only allowed four hits and one run. The Marlins ended a 1-1 tie in the 8th inning with Miguel Cabrera's bases clearing triple.

While the Mets may have lost against the Marlins, they won big time off the field as they signed contract extension until at least 2010 with Jose Reyes. The four-year contract is worth $23.25 million with a team option for 2011. By signing the contract, the Mets avoided salary arbitration in the coming off season. Next up for Omar Minaya - signing David Wright.

- Yankees 8, Blue Jays 1: For the first time since April in 1999, the Yankees swept the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. Cory Lidle, acquired Sunday in a trade with Philadelpha, picked up his first win with his new team yesterday afternoon. Lidle pitched only six innings in the victory, but Joe Torre said after the game that Lidle could have pitched eight or nine innings if it wasn't so hot. Bobby Abreu, the "bigger" name in the trade with the Phillies, was 3-5 with 2 runs scored in the win.
