2006_04_syankeeslogo.jpg-Yankees 6 Baltimore 3: The game plan has become very familiar: keep working the count to force the starting pitcher to work hard and then once he is out of the game, bomb the bullpen. Erik Bedard shut down New York for six innings, but needed 106 pitches to do so. The Yankees scored all six of their runs after he left with Johnny Damon hitting a big home run and Robinson Cano delivering a clutch RBI-single. The win and the Boston loss puts the Yankees’ lead in the division back to three games.

-Phillies 11 Mets 4: It’s pretty rare for a player on the losing side of a blowout to steal the show, but that’s exactly what Jose Reyes did Tuesday. Reyes homered in his first two at bats and after drawing a four-pitch walk, homered again for his third of the game in the eighth inning. The problem was, El Duque didn’t have it, giving up eleven runs in four innings and the Mets never got into the game. Even with the loss, New York still leads the NL East by 13 games.
