- Yankees 5 Mets 0: Two games into the Subway Series at Citi Field it appears that the Yankees have no problems hitting in the spacious ballpark. Saturday they hit two more homers, Nick Swisher with a solo shot and Jorge Posada with a three-run bomb. A.J. Burnett took it from there, stifling the depleted Mets’ lineup. Burnett gave up only one hit in seven innings and struck out ten batters. Tim Redding matched him for a while, but ran into trouble in the sixth with Posada striking the big blow. Brian Bruney and David Robertson took it from there, pitching 1-2-3 innings and leaving the Mets with Alex Cora’s single as their only hit of the night.
- Columbus 1 Red Bulls 0: In a rematch of last season’s MLS Cup, the result was the same. Yes, the Red Bulls lost (again) but they actually played a better match than they have in a long time. Now we will see if they can build on it to stop their winless streak.
- Indiana 63 Liberty 54: The Liberty lost for the second night in a row to the Fever, but this one wasn’t as close. Indiana used a big second quarter to open up a lead and coasted home with the victory.
