- Yankees 9 Baltimore 1: A pitchers’ duel was transformed by a seven-run seventh inning from the Yankees giving the Yankees their seventh win in a row. Baltimore jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first, but A-Rod put the Yankees back on top with his fourth homer in as many days, a two-run shot to deep left. That’s where things stayed until the seventh. The Yankees blew things open thanks to a big error and a big double from Derek Jeter. Mark Teixeira added a home run of his own and the rout was complete. C.C. Sabathia went seven innings, striking out seven for the win- his first at home as a Yankee.
- Dodgers 5 Mets 3: John Maine helped his own cause with a two-run single as the Mets took the early lead. But, Casey Blake hit a three-run homer in the sixth to put the Dodgers on top for good.
