• Yankees 7, Phillies 4: Alex Rodriguez hit a go-ahead double in the top of the ninth to help the Yankees bounce back from a blown lead and take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven World Series. Joba Chamberlain had served up a two-strike, two-out homer to Pedro Feliz in the bottom of the eighth, and the first two Yankees in the top of the ninth had made out. But Johnny Damon hit an opposite-field single and stole second and third on the same pitch. Mark Teixeira was hit by a pitch, and that set the stage for Rodriguez's double. Jorge Posada singled in two more runs to give Mariano Rivera some breathing room.

    The Yankees turn to A.J. Burnett on short rest in Game 5 on Monday. He'll face Cliff Lee, who stifled the Yankees in Game 1. CC Sabathia labored in short rest Sunday and would be needed if this series goes seven. The Yankees, who will start their guys on short rest from here on out, can't count their chickens just yet.

  • Dolphins 30, Jets 25: The Jets' special teams were hardly special. They allowed two kickoff return touchdowns -- of 100 and 101 yards by Ted Ginn Jr. -- and ruined a day in which the team's offense outgained Miami's 378 yards to 104. Shonn Greene's fumble was also returned for a touchdown. Mark Sanchez's strong effort (20 of 35 for 265 yards and two touchdowns, plus a rushing TD) also went to waste. The Jets enter their bye at 4-4 and have some work to do. They have lost four of five games and trail the Patriots by 1 1/2 games in the AFC East.

  • Eagles 40, Giants 17: Maybe the Giants' hot start owed something to the team's schedule? Big Blue began 5-0 with wins over Washington, Tampa Bay, Oakland and Kansas City. The Giants' one good win came against Dallas. In the last two weeks, they have been annihilated by New Orleans and Philadelphia. In fairness, both games have been on the road, but the Giants can't be considered among the elite of the NFC crop after performances like those. They get San Diego at home in another decent test next week.

  • Rangers 1, Bruins 0: This was Henrik Lundqvist's 150th win and his 21st career shutout. Marian Gaborik had the game's only goal as he returned from a right leg injury.
