• Rays 3, Yankees 2: Two batters into this game, the Yankees had a two-run lead. But they wouldn't do any more damage against Wade Davis and the Rays' bullpen, and Phil Hughes' mistake cost the Yankees in the sixth. With two on and two out, Phil Hughes gave up a three-run homer to the Rays' Matt Joyce. That spoiled an otherwise impressive outing for Hughes, who struck out six and walked two in six innings. Looking for a bright spot? Joba Chamberlain through two perfect innings in relief. The bad news? The Yankees' lead in the American League East is one game, though they are 7 1/2 games up on Boston.

  • Diamondbacks 9, Mets 6: Mike Pelfrey's recent struggles continue. He allowed five runs -- four earned -- in 5 2/3 innings to take the loss. The Diamondbacks may be 37-65 this season, but they are a perfect 4-0 against the Mets this season. The teams traded three runs in the first inning, and the Mets rallied to take a 5-4 lead after three. But a five-run Arizona sixth broke the game open, and sent the Mets to their 11th loss in 15 games since the All-Star break. Hisanori Takahashi takes the mound on Saturday.
