  • Yankees 9 Blue Jays 2: Tempers flared in Toronto as the Blue Jays decided to retaliate for a second day against Alex Rodriguez for his infamous “HA!”. Josh Towers plunked Alex and the benches emptied twice before play resumed. Things cruised along from there until Robinson Cano got hit, although it looked unintentional, in the seventh. But, that was enough for Roger Clemens who started the bottom of the seventh with a fastball away before depositing his second pitch squarely into Alex Rios’s back. Clemens and Torre were ejected since both benches had been warned, but the message was sent- don’t mess with A-Rod.

    Oh yes, the Yankees won thanks to 4 RBI’s from Abreu, some nice pitching from Clemens and a great debut by Joba Chamberlain.

  • Atlanta 7 Mets 3: Oliver Perez didn’t have it and the Mets didn’t stand a chance. Atlanta jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first three innings while Chipper Jones and Jeff Francoeur went 7-for-10. With the win, the Braves cut the Mets’ lead in the NL East to 3-1/2 games.
  • Liberty 77 Houston 71: Loree Moore and Janel McCarville had 17 points each in the win.
  • Staten Island 2 Williamsport 0 (Suspended in the third inning) Justin Snyder was 2-for-2 before the rains came. The game will be resumed tonight at 6:05.
  • Brooklyn-Mahoning Valley (Rained Out): The teams will play a doubleheader today starting at 6pm.
