Mariano Rivera tied Trevor Hoffman's career save record with his 601st in the Yankees 7-6 win over Toronto. Rivera's save capped a topsy-turvy game that saw the Yankees trail 6-1 before rallying for the win. A-Rod hit his 16th homer of the season, a three-run blast, to bring the Yankees within one run. Curtis Granderson launched his 40th homer of the year, a two-run shot, to put the Yankees up by the final margin. Aaron Laffey earned the win and the bullpen did a remarkable job, not allowing a hit over five innings of work.
R.A. Dickey walked six, but only allowed one run over 7-2/3 innings. The problem was, Tim Hudson didn't allow any runs and the Mets lost to Atlanta 1-0. The Mets best chance to score came in the 3rd when the first two hitters reached on singles. But, Dickey couldn't get down a sacrifice bunt and struck out. Jose Reyes then grounded into a double play to end the inning.
Luke Rodgers scored the only goal in the game as the Red Bulls beat Dallas 1-0.
Nicole Powell scored 19 points as the Liberty evened up their playoff series with Indiana 87-72.
