- Yankees 3 Minnesota 2 (10 innings): The Twins must be getting tired of seeing the same thing everyday. For the third-straight time the Yankees won the game in their last at bat. This time the hero was Johnny Damon who lofted a 3-2 pitch into the rightfield stands for the win. Damon’s heroics capped a comeback by New York. Down 2-0, the heroes of Friday and Saturday got the game tied when A-Rod homered and Melky added a RBI . In the 8th, both teams turned outstanding defensive plays to keep the game tied. Mark Teixeira made a great throw at home to nail a runner and Joe Mauer made a superb lunge to the plate to nail Brett Gardner. Alfredo Aceves pitched an inning of relief to earn his second win of the year.
- San Francisco 2 Mets 0: Mike Pelfrey balked three times in the game, two of them directly leading to the San Francisco runs and New York blew a golden opportunity to tie the game. Leading off the eighth, Luis Castillo walked and Carlos Beltran doubled him to third. After Gary Sheffield struck out, the Giants intentionally walked David Wright. Jerry Manuel chose to pinch-hit for Daniel Murphy, sending in Angel Pagan. Pagan grounded into a double play and the Mets went quietly in the ninth.
