  • Mets 2, Yankees 0: Poof! Just like that, the Mets' five-game losing streak and the Yankees' nine-game winning streak have been snapped. Oliver Perez shut down the Yankees for the second time this season, and Roger Clemens was good but not good enough in the loss. Jose Reyes and Carlos Gomez -- the two Mets speedsters and fans of untucking their jerseys within seconds of the final out -- supplied the two Mets runs. Given the teams' divergent paths of late, the Mets probably needed this game more. Their bullpen, a source of weakness during their stumbles, shut down the Yankees late. With Tom Glavine going against Tyler Clippard on Saturday, the Mets probably have the edge. Then again, Clippard already has one strong start against the Mets -- in his Major League debut.
  • Sky 73, Liberty 66: Things don't look as rosy for the Liberty, losers of three of four. Shameka Christon and Tiffany Jackson were the only people in double figures, but they and their teammates didn't shoot that poorly or play that bad defense.
