• Mets 8, Pirates 4: What a difference a week makes. The Mets rolled to another win over the struggling Pirates, completing a three-game sweep and keeping themselves in first place. Livan Hernandez had a rocky start but settled down and allowed two runs in seven innings, striking out five and walking four. Jose Reyes kept moving in the right direction, reaching base three times. The Mets are one of eight teams to play Monday. They host Atlanta in the opener of a three-game set.
  • Yankees 5, Orioles 3: Chicks dig the longball. The Yankees got all their runs via the home run in this come-from-behind win. No hit was bigger than Johnny Damon's three-run homer in the eighth that turned a one-run deficit into the deciding margin. Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano also homered. Joba Chamberlain allowed nine hits in six innings but didn't allow a run after the first inning, when he served up a three-run bomb to Aubrey Huff. The Yankees needed this one entering an off-day Monday and a date against nemesis Roy Halladay in Toronto on Tuesday.
