• Rays 3, Yankees 0: If not for their comeback victory in Saturday's game, the Yankees would be trailing the Rays by a game in the American League East. Instead, they lead Tampa Bay by one game after losing two of three from the team with the second-best record in baseball. On Sunday, they managed only five hits en route to being shutout by James Shields and Co. CC Sabathia continued his minislump by walking three and striking out only three in 6 2/3 innings.

    He wasn't helped by his defense or his bats, who struck out 11 times against James Shields and walked only one time. Lance Berkman picked up his first hit as a Yankee but made a few questionable plays in the field. In an interesting decision since the Yankees were playing a division rival, Joe Girardi decided to rest both Brett Gardner and Alex Rodriguez.


  • Diamondbacks 14, Mets 1: Why can't the Mets beat the Diamondbacks. More than 1/8 of Arizona's wins have come in six games against the Mets this season. Jon Niese got messed up to the tune of seven runs in 4 1/3 innings. A 3-3 homestand is not what the Mets needed with road series against the Phillies and Braves this week. The Mets' season could effectively end this week if they don't shape up.
