- Yankees 5 Boston 0: After three games the Yankees have seized control of the AL East and erased any questions about their ability to compete with the best teams in baseball. C.C. Sabathia was the latest to step up, delivering 7-2/3 innings of shutout baseball. Mark Teixeira got the Yankees on the board with a RBI single and Jose Molina added a sacrifice fly to make it 2-0 after six. Nick Swisher drew a RBI walk and Derek Jeter hit a two-run homer to complete the scoring. The win puts the Yankees 5-1/2 games in front of the AL East and they will go for the sweep later tonight.
- San Diego 3 Mets 1: Bobby Parnell started his conversion to the rotation and it was a so-so debut. Parnell allowed 8 baserunners in only 2-1/3, but only two of those runners came around to score. Unfortunately, the Mets couldn't muster any offense besides an Alex Cora home run in the first and they dropped their third-straight game.
