- Mets 6, Phillies 5: Who says Citi Field suppresses home runs? Ryan Church, Carlos Beltran and David Wright all went yard as the Mets overcame a shaky start by Johan Santana, who allowed four Philadelphia home runs. Santana, who squandered a 3-0 lead, helped himself with a game-tying double in the sixth, and Alex Cora drove in the go-ahead run. Francisco Rodriguez worked around a Jimmy Rollins single in the ninth to get his 16th save in 16 chances. He then pointed to the sky three times -- once for each out he got? The Mets trail the Phillies by two games in the National League East.
- Red Sox 7, Yankees 0: Where to begin with this one? The Yankees are now 0-6 against the Red Sox, with whom they now share first place. A.J. Burnett did not have it from the beginning. He worked a shaky first, then gave up a home run to
an exhumed corpseDavid Ortiz. An Alex Rodriguez error helped make it 4-0. Burnett didn't finish the third..The Yankees got only an infield hit (Robinson Cano's) off Josh Beckett, who pitched six scoreless innings. They only had one other (Brett Gardner's) in the game. Chien-MIng Wang starts Wednesday.
