2006_04_smetslogo.jpg - Mets 15, D iamondbacks 2: Pedro Martinez has waited a long time for his sixth win (since April 28), and the Mets didn't want their bullpen to have a chance to blow it. So they scored 15 runs and swept four games from Arizona, who entered the series leading the NL West (they've since dropped to second). The Mets continue to lead the NL East.

- Athletics 6, Yankees 5: Oakland completed a sweep of the Yankees (at least the healthy ones) with a come-from-behind win Sunday. The Yankees' injuries have hurt the lineup enough. (Jason Giambi missed the game after being hit by a pitch Saturday; Derek Jeter still hasn't returned to shortstop; Hideki Matsui and Gary Sheffield have serious wrist injuries.) They don't need Joe Torre furthering the damage by letting Miguel Cairo (.277 OBP, .284 SLG) hit late in the game). Also, unknown Kevin Thompson might be better than Bernie Williams' predictable poor play (.303/.377). The recent call-up can't be worse. But Torre might never let people find out.
