• Mets 9 St. Louis 1: You can call it overkill, but after last week’s loss to the Phillies, you can’t blame Jerry Manuel for making Santana go the distance. Santana dominated the Cardinals, allowing only seven baserunners while striking out five. He also collected two hits on offense, part of a 17-hit attack by the Mets. David Wright, Fernando Tatis and Ramon Castro all homered as New York collected a series win and maintained their division lead over the Phillies.
  • Boston 9 New York 2: You knew this was coming. After winning the first two games of the series, the Yankees sent Sidney Ponson to the mound to try and complete the sweep. The result was predictable as Ponson got shelled, but the Yankees also didn’t capitalize on their own opportunities, stranding runners when they could have climbed out of a 7-0 hole. Will New York now pull the trigger on a Jarrod Washburn trade?
