2006_04_smetslogo.jpg-Mets 7, Florida 6: David Wright's three-run homer helped the Mets come back and earn a split of the weekend's four-game series. They won't be tested until the playoffs, but the biggest challenge for the NL East leaders will be readjusting their starting rotation. After Pedro Martinez and Tom Glavine, question marks remain. The Mets are fortunate to have a second half and a 12-game lead to make adjustments.

-Devil Rays 6, Yankees 5: Most Major League teams wouldn't expect to win games started by Kansas City Royals retreads. The Yankees' expectations were even lower; they had Bernie Williams hitting fifth and Kelly Stinnett catching in one of their weakest lineups this year. They still took two of three from Tampa Bay, but they'll have to find someone better than Kris Wilson if they want to make the playoffs.

-SI Yankees 8, Vermont 3: A five-run seventh opened up the game, and Staten Island improved to .500. The two teams play again Monday.

-State College 3, Cyclones 0: Jonathan Sanchez had the only two hits for Brooklyn, which fell to 6-13.

-Mercury 94, Liberty 88: The Libety lost their fifth straight game, this time in overtime at home. It was the first time in 11 games that Phoenix had won at New York.
