• Yankees 5, Phillies 4: Hope you didn't donate that old "Got Melky?" t-shirt you bought a couple years back because it looks like it might be a hot item once again this summer. Melky Cabrera had his third game-winning hit of the young season yesterday with an RBI single off of Phillies' closer Brad Lidge to cap off another dramatic win in the Bronx. The Yanks came into the 9th down by two runs, but that lead was quickly erased when A-Rod took a full count fastball and sent it over everyone's favorite right field fence. After the game, Rodriguez called himself "the happiest .200 hitter in baseball," since seven of the ten total hits he has since returning have left the ballpark.
  • Mets 3, Red Sox 2: After the Yankees disposed of last year's World Series champs and their star closer, the Mets pulled the same trick on the 2007 champs and their premiere stopper. Met catcher Omir Santos may have needed a little help from instant replay to record his second career home run, but that didn't take away much excitement from the two-run shot that handed Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon his first blown save of the year. The home run was originally ruled a double, only to be corrected in the first replay review in Fenway history. Until the big ninth inning hit, the Boston crowd had watched a pitcher's duel between Josh Beckett and Mike Pelfrey that hadn't seen any runs put on the board since the first inning. In the bottom of the ninth, the Mets had to turn to JJ Putz to finish things off as Francisco Rodriguez became their latest casualty to sit out with an injury, suffering through back spasms.
