• Mets 1 Philadelphia 0: Round 1 goes to New York as they used a stellar start from Santana and an error to win a ballgame. Johan was dominant, continuing his amazing 2009, striking out 10 over seven innings and allowing only five baserunners. But, Chan Ho Park was just as good, matching Santana out for out. But, in the seventh the Mets broke through with an odd rally. Carlos Delgado walked to start the inning, but was left there when Wright and Murphy couldn’t move him. Fernando Tatis hit a slow grounder to third that Pedro Feliz fielded and fired wide of first. With two outs, Delgado was running on the play and he scored all the way from first for the game’s only run. Feliciano and Rodriguez came in and pitched two scoreless to nail down the win. And more good news as the Mets placed Oliver Perez on the DL today.

  • Tampa Bay 4 Yankees 3 (10 Innings): Mark Teixeira epitomizes the struggles of the Yankees. Sometimes he is very good, more often he is bad. Teixeira had a huge double in the 8th inning to wipe out a three-run deficit. But, with a runner on third and only one out in the tenth, Teixeira couldn’t get the tying run home and the Yankees lost. They are now under .500 for the season.
