2006_04_smetslogo.jpg -Mets 5 D’Backs 0: Alay Soler had his finest outing as a Met, going the distance while only allowing two hits three walks as New York beat Arizona for the third-consecutive game. Carlos Beltran kept up his hot hitting with a RBI double to get the Mets on the board. Endy Chavez had two hits while Lastings Milledge has a hit and a stolen base.

-Oakland 5 New York 2: The A’s added injury to insult Saturday, not only beating the Yankees, but hitting Jason Giambi with a pitch that will probably keep him out of the lineup Sunday, if not longer. To make matters worse, Johnny Damon has an injured elbow and may not be able to play tomorrow. With Derek Jeter already limited to DH’ing, maybe the Yankees can take the little-league approach and rotate all three through the spot. $54 million for one DH, that’s New York pricing!
