• Angels 5, Yankees 2: A righty-heavy Yankees lineup was befuddled by Angels starter Joe Saunders. A win would have allowed the Yankees to celebrate the clinching of a Wild Card berth, but the team is waiting for the bigger prize for its true celebration. The Yankees, who have lost three of four on this West Coast trip and six of 10 overall, still lead the American League East by five games after the Royals came back to beat the Red Sox in Kansas City. Andy Pettitte went six innings and allowed three runs -- a quality start! -- in his return to the rotation. He had missed a turn with what was called a tired shoulder.
  • Braves 11, Mets 3: The good news is Pat Misch got to the second inning. The bad news is he gave up eight runs in 1 1/3 innings. Misch, whose full name anagrams to "camp [expletive]," has been absolutely dreadful since earning his first win in Colorado on Sept. 3. After Lance Broadway gave up three runs in the third, Tobi Stoner, Bobby Parnell, Ken Takahashi and Brian Stokes pitched six innings of hitless relief. Daniel Murphy did hit a homer in the loss.
