- Padres 6, Mets 5: For a first game in Citi Field, this contest had a lot. A leadoff home run, a balk, a cat -- just like Shea! -- and a loss for the Mets. Jody Gerut became the first person in Major League history to homer in the first at-bat at a new stadium. The Mets rallied from a 5-1 deficit with a four-run fifth that was capped by a David Wright home run. That happened right before Pedro Feliciano balked in the winning run -- which got to third base after Ryan Church dropped a fly ball for a three-base error. Ex-Met Heath Bell -- traded for Jon Adkins and Ben Johnson -- got the save for San Diego. Think the Mets could have used him in their bullpen the past two seasons?
- Rays 15, Yankees 5: Chien-Ming Wang -- one inning pitched. Nick Swisher -- one inning pitched. That is not good. Swisher even pitched better, striking out one and not allowing a run. Wang allowed eight runs without getting an out in the second. That makes two sloppy outings in a row for Wang. When is it time to worry about him? The Yankees are 3-4.
- Nets 91, Bobcats 87: Jarvis Hayes hit two late 3-pointers as the Nets rallied from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter. But all this did was hurt their draft lottery position, so was it worth it?
