• Orioles 4, Yankees 0: Roger Clemens had struck out a batter in 200 straight starts until he lost to the Orioles on Wednesday. Maybe it was the heat -- it was 97 at the first pitch -- but when Clemens last went without a strikeout, he only pitched an inning before leaving with an injury. The Yankees have now lost four straight games and have not looked good doing it. They have managed four runs in the last 31 innings. Erik Bedard became the latest lefty to master them. Fans will notice announcers no longer say how the Yankees lineup comes with no weak spot. Right now it has about six -- everyone but Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada. They'll send Chien-Ming Wang when they try to avoid a sweep.

  • Mets 2, Cardinals 0: They only played six innings, but that was enough when the umpires called the game for rain. Luckily the Mets struck in the first inning of the shortened game, with David Wright hitting a two-run homer off of Cardinals starter Anthony Reyes. The only thing more frustrating than having a game end after six innings has to be the feeling of a team with a big lead that can't get through five innings. Tom Glavine pitched one-hit ball before the game was called and picked up his 297th victory. The Mets have now won five of six.

  • Hudson Valley 2, Staten Island 1: This game got called due to rain after five innings, but not before Doug Waechter, formerly of the Devil Rays, could pick up the win. He's rehabbing after shoulder surgery. The Baby Bombers are probably hoping they could have gotten their four more chances at bat.

  • Brooklyn 9, Aberdeen 7: In another game that was shortened by rain, the Cyclones scored two in the bottom of the 8th inning to break a tie before the game was called.
