- Yankees 8 Atlanta 4: For five innings the offense kept doing what it has done far too often these past few weeks, sleepwalked through a game. In fact, the Yankees didn’t have a runner reach base until Francisco Cervelli went deep in the sixth inning, but that seemed to spark the bats. They scored seven more times over the final four innings and cruised to the 8-4 win. Joba Chamberlain went 6-1/3 allowing three runs and striking out five. Mariano Rivera came into the game in the eighth and nailed down his 16th save by striking out four batters.
- Mets 11 St. Louis 0: David Wright went four-for-four and scored three times. Ryan Church had three hits and 2 RBI’s. Fernando Tatis had two hits and three RBI’s. It was all part of a big offensive night for the Mets as they pounded out 16 hits and 11 runs to crush the Cardinals. Fernando Nieve had his third-consecutive winning start by going six innings and the bullpen did the rest.
- Toronto 2 Red Bulls 0: Let’s face it, getting back to the championship game is a pipe dream at this point, how about settling for just seeing the Bulls win again? Wednesday’s loss makes it nine-straight games without a win and they have a MLS Finals rematch on Saturday with Columbus.
