- Mets 7, Phillies 4: Chan Ho Park isn't Cole Hamels, but a win against the Phillies is still a good win. Mike Pelfrey pitched 5 1/3 innings of three-run ball, Daniel Murphy (pictured) hit a two-run homer in the first and the Mets led from start to finish in this opener of a three-game set. David Wright, unfairly maligned for his start, got an RBI single in the fifth inning. Pedro Feliciano allowed one run in 1 2/3 innings of relief, but J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez closed the door. Oliver Perez gets the call in the second game of the series Saturday afternoon.
- Yankees 10, Angels 9: Neither team wanted to win this game. The Yankees blew a 4-0 lead and trailed, 9-4, entering the bottom of the eighth. But they put up a four-spot in that inning and got two more in the bottom of the ninth on a two-run, game-winning single by Jorge Posada. Ramiro Pena went 3-for-4 and Robinson Cano went 3-for-5. Andy Pettitte relinquished the four-run lead, and Jose Veras and Mark Melancon helped the Angels pad their lead. But Edwar Ramirez and Jonathan Albaladejo stopped the bleeding with 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief.
