• Yankees 5 Toronto 3: The Yankees got to Roy Halladay thanks to some shaky defense by the Blue Jays. New York scored twice in the first, the second run coming when Halladay dropped the third out at first base. They padded their lead in the eighth with back-to-back solo shots from Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira, but Phil Hughes and Mariano gave those runs right back to make it 4-3 heading into the ninth. Hideki Matsui started the top of the ninth with a solo shot and Rivera worked around a couple of base runners in the bottom of the inning to earn his 31st save.
  • St. Louis 12 Mets 7: Johan Santana wasn’t dominant, but he still managed to turn a 7-5 lead over to the bullpen. Unfortunately, K-Rod also had an off night, giving up the lead and when the Cardinals’ bullpen snuffed out a Mets rally in the ninth, the game went to extra innings. And that’s where the Mets’ bullpen really imploded. St. Louis scored five times, capped by Albert Pujols’ second home run, this one a grand slam, to cruise to victory.
  • Detroit 76 Liberty 64: A close game at halftime turned into a rout and the Liberty lost to the second-worst team in the Eastern Conference.
