- Yankees 5, Red Sox 2: This game took only two hours, 47 minutes. CC Sabathia turned in a strong performance, striking out five and walking one, as the Yankees bounced back from Friday's defeat to even this four-game set. With Tampa Bay's loss at Toronto, the Yankees lead the Rays by 1 1/2 games and the Red Sox by six in baseball's best division. Curtis Granderson had an RBI triple, Ramiro Pena knocked in two runs and four consecutive two-out singles put the Yankees ahead to say in the fifth. After Sabathia worked eight innings, Rivera came in for a perfect ninth. Former teammates A.J. Burnett and Josh Beckett face off Sunday night.
- Mets 1, Phillies 0: Understatement of the year: Jeff Francoeur said after this game, "I'm not Babe Ruth." Francoeur did hit a home run in this pitchers' duel, however, helping fulfill a request by Alex Cora, who was released by the Mets earlier in the day. Cora told Francoeur to hit a rocket, and the Mets outfielder said he didn't promise the home run because he wasn't the Sultan of Swat. Johan Santana pitched 7 1/3 innings, and Francisco Rodiguez got the final five outs for the save. The Mets can salvage a 3-3 trip if they beat the Phillies on Sunday.
