- Yankees 9, Tigers 5: Home runs weren't in short supply, and neither were brushback pitches. Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson all went deep to back Dustin Moseley, who served up three home runs of his own, two of them to Miguel Cabrera. Things got testy in the eighth when Chad Gaudin hit Cabrera. Tigers starter Jeremy Bonderman had hit Brett Gardner back in the first inning, perhaps in retaliation for Gardner's slide into second base Monday that sent Carlos Guillen to the disabled list. In any case, the Yankees have Phil Hughes on the mound for Thursday's matinee. The win helped the Yankees keep pace with the Rays, who swept the Rangers earlier Wednesday.
- Mets 3, Astros 2 (14 innings): Hey, the Mets won an extra-inning game on the road. For a team with 12 walk-off losses, blowing a lead in the ninth would seem to spell impending doom. But the Mets' relief corps rose to the challenge and kept the
mightyAstros offense in check. Jose Reyes drew a walk and scored without the benefit of a hit in the 14th inning. R.A. Dickey pitched 8 1/3 innings of two-run ball before yielding, and the Mets' bullpen did the rest. David Wright did feel the game because he was feeling queasy.
