• Yankees 6 Royals 3: At this point, the YES Network should just play a “ch-ching” sound everytime A-Rod steps up to the plate. After hitting a home run for the 5th-consecutive game on Sunday, A-Rod has 52 for the season, the most for a Yankee since Mantle and Maris hit 54 and 61 in 1961. He also has 138 RBI’s with 19 games left, which puts him in line to have the most RBI’s as a Yankee since Joe DiMaggio had 155 in 1948.

    As for the game itself, pitcher Chien-Ming Wang picked up his 18th win with seven effective innings and Jorge Posada (maybe worth a “ch-ching” himself) went 2-for-5 with a huge 2-RBI double.

  • Mets 4 Houston 1: Pedro looks like he is back, five innings, no runs and four K’s and Beltran and Alou provided the offense with 2 RBI’s each.
  • At the US Open, Roger Federer won his fourth straight men's single title, defeating Novak Djokovic, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 6-4.

It's also his 12th career Grand Slam title, moving him to 2nd behind Pete Sampras for career slams in the open era.
