2006_04_smetslogo.jpg - Giants 6, Mets 4: The Giants and Mets waited out a rain delay before the first game of their single ticket doubleheader before San Francisco picked up the victory. Former Met Armando "Who Let the Dogs Out" Benitez picked up the save in a way that every Met fan can remember - walking two batters before getting the save. Of course, that's assuming he even got the save when he was with the Mets. Barry Bonds was 2-3 with 2 walks, 1 RBI and a run scored.

- Yankees 6, Orioles 5: Randy Johnson pitched well enough to get the save, but the Yankee bullpen was unable to preserve the win for him. The Yankees still picked up the win Chien-Ming Wang picked up his first career save as Johnny Damon homered in the 10th off Chris Ray. Because Kyle Farnsworth was unavailable and Mariano Rivera is still recovering from back problems, Wang made his first relief appearance of the season.

- Mets 3, Giants 2: In the second game of their doubleheader, the Mets were able to beat the Giants but it took extra frames. Chris Woodward had the game-winning RBI when he hit a sacrifice-fly to score Lastings Milledge. Jamey Wright and Tom Glavine both pitched deep into the game and allowed two runs each.

- At the Reebok Grand Prix at Ichan Stadium on Randall's Island, there were no records set by one of the world's fastest men. Brooklyn-born Justin Gatlin was only able to run a 9.87 in the 100m race, easily defeating his competitors, but a full 1/10th of a second off the record he co-owns with Asafa Powell. Guh, Gatlin is sooo slow. Marion Jones was also on hand, winning the women's 100 with a time of 11.06. No reports of syringes thrown at Jones. Barry Bonds was clearly getting all the BALCO publicity yesterday. The weather didn't stop records from being set though as Meseret Defar set a new world record for the women's 5000m. The Ethiopian finished with a time of 14:24.53.

- Red Bulls 1, Wizards 1: The New York Red Bulls should change their name again. Something to honor all the tie games they've had this season. Yesterday's draw was their 6th of the season. They have only one win and two losses this season. With the World Cup less than a week away, what soccer fan is following MLS right now.

- Liberty 89, Sparks 79: The Mets and Yankees weren't the only teams that needed extra time to defeat their opponent as the Liberty needed overtime to beat Los Angeles. Attendance at the game was a nice 14,070 and that's a less than 6,000 fan difference from the last home game the Knicks played. The more successful franchise here clearly has to be the Liberty.
