  • Angels 4 Yankees 3: The Yankees started well and finished terribly again. Damon and Jeter reached base in the first and scored to give New York a 2-0 lead, but it didn’t hold up. Andy Pettitte gutted out seven innings, allowing only three runs and the Yankees tied up the game at 3. It headed to the ninth and Joe Girardi chose to go with Marte, but switched to Mo with runners on 1st and 2nd and one out. Rivera got Chone Figgins to hit a grounder to the right side that both Wilson Betemit and Robinson Cano seemed to give up on. Bobby Abreu came in a fielded the ball, but his throw home was too late and the Yankees were swept.
  • Florida 8 Mets 2: Mike Pelfrey got shelled, giving up six runs in four-plus innings of work while Josh Johnson pitched well. But, New York leaves Florida with two wins and a 1/2 –game ahead of the Marlins for second place.
  • Red Bulls 4 D.C. United 1: Mike Magee’s goal just before halftime proved to be the game-winner and the Red Bulls moved into a tie for fourth in the conference.
