• Yankees 6 Oakland 1: Ales Rodriguez hit two homers, the first a grand slam and the second a solo shot. CC Sabathia made it stand up with 7-2/3 innings of good pitching. Sabathia struck out ten while allowing only one run, and that was enough for the Yankees to stay two game in front in the AL East.

    A-Rod now has 597 career home runs. And he's hit 21 home runs at the Oakland Coliseum, the most by a visiting player.

  • Mets 3 Cincinnati 0: Johan Santana dominated on the mound and in the batter’s box. On the mound he delivered a three-hit shutout. In the batter’s box he delivered his first home run of the year. Jason Bay had the other RBI”s, which made up for his dropped pop up in the ninth. New York goes for the series win later tonight.
