• Yankees 8 Texas 6: Chien-Ming Wang had his best start of the season. Then again, considering the disasters his first three starts were, that isn’t saying much. Wang allowed five runs over 4-2/3 innings, which sadly lowered his ERA, but that wasn’t the real story. What was the story was a great comeback from New York. Down 5-1, the Yankees rallied thanks to a bases-clearing double from Mark Teixeira and they won the game thanks to a two-run home run from Melky Cabrera. Rivera came in for the save and New York has now won seven of it’s last eight series.
  • Pittsburgh 11 Mets 6: Usually scoring six runs is enough to win, but not when your starting pitcher can’t keep you in the game. Mike Pelfrey was awful, allowing nine runs- eight earned, and the lowly Pirates swept the Mets. To make matters much worse, Jose Reyes has a tear in his hamstring and J.J. Putz will probably need elbow surgery. Depending on the result of tonight’s Phillies game in San Diego, New York will be either three or four games back in the NL East.
  • Washington 2 Red Bulls 0: Another loss as the season drags on for New York. They played a tough match and trailed only by a goal until the final minute when a penalty kick gave D.C. the final edge.
