• Yankees 20, Red Sox 11: Entering Fenway Park with a 6 1/2-game lead, the Yankees' main goal should have been to avoid a sweep. They did just that by pouring it on against Brad Penny and a host of Red Sox pitchers. Every spot in the order had a hit, an RBI and a run scored, though Johnny Damon left the game after fouling a ball off his knee and striking out. The Yankees will have A.J. Burnett and CC Sabathia the next two days as they try to put even more space between them and their rivals. Believe it or not, this was the Yankees' first win at Fenway this season.
  • Mets 4, Phillies 2: Thanks to a rain delay, this game started an hour and a half late but the Yankees' contest still almost ended after it did. The Mets had two in the third and two in the fourth -- including a solo homer from Jeff Francoeur -- to pull within 13 1/2 games of the Phillies and eight games of .500. Awesome.
