• Yankees Sweep Tampa: When you send Kei Igawa and Matt DeSalvo out to the mound in a doubleheader, you cannot expect a lot of good to happen, but the Yankees’ offense changed that thinking. New York took the first game 7-3 behind some great hitting from Andy Phillips and the first career home run by Shelly Duncan and then took the second game 17-5.

    New York jumped on top in the nightcap with three runs in the first before recording an out. They added 14 runs from there behind home runs from Matsui and Abreu and 20 total hits.

  • Dodgers8 Mets 6: Carlos Beltran and David Wright homered, but Jorge Sosa couldn’t keep the lead in the loss.
  • Brooklyn 11 Tri-City 2: The Cyclones won again behind a great start from Dillon Gee.
  • State College 7 Staten Island 1: The Baby Bombers kept it close until a five-run eighth.
