- L.A. 8 Mets 0: Clayton Kershaw came into the game leading the NL in walks issued with 52. Against the free-swinging Mets, he only walked two. It was another night of zero offense for New York, extending their scoreless streak to 22 innings. Luis Castillo had a brutal game, getting thrown out at third in the third inning to squelch a rally and committing a big error in the fourth to start a rally for the Dodgers. Mike Pelfry couldn’t do much, only lasting into the fourth and the Mets lost for the ninth time in eleven games. As for Manny Ramirez, he was 2-for-4, drove in three runs and was ejected for throwing an elbow pad at an ump—Manny being Manny!
- Yankees 10 Twins 2: C.C. Sabathia was dealing and the Yankees offense warmed up as the game progressed. After letting the Twins escape several jams in the early innings, the New York bats broke through with a five-run sixth. Robinson Cano had a two-run single and Brett Gardner followed with a two-run triple. Every starter had a hit and Sabathia worked seven-strong to get the win.
