• Yankees 7 Cleveland 3: For six innings it really looked as if Carl Pavano would have a triumphant return to Yankee Stadium. The hated pitcher was dominating the Yankees’ lineup, retiring the first 10 batters he faced and cruising with a 3-1 lead after six. But, Pavano left before the seventh and that’s when mystique and aura decided to setup shop at their new home. Jonathan Albaladejo escaped a bases-loaded jam in the top of the inning and Jorge Posada hit a controversial home run in the bottom of it. Posada’s shot to right hit off a fan and the top of the wall and was ruled a home run. Umpires reviewed the call for over eight minutes and the call stood giving the Yankees a 4-3 lead. But, the fates were not done with the Yankees. In the eighth, outfielder Shin-Soo Choo lost what should have been the final out of the inning in the sun. His misplay gave the Yankees three more runs and a comfortable win to split the series with Cleveland.
  • Milwaukee 4 Mets 2: It was a frustrating day for New York as they couldn’t seem to get a big hit when they needed it. Despite twelve hits and six walks, the Mets only plated 2 runs, stranding 10 runners on base and going 2-for-13 with runners in scoring position. Nelson Figueroa was solid if unspectacular, pitching six innings and allowing only three runs, but the Mets DFA'ed him after the game. Jose Reyes and Carlos Delgado got the RBI’s for the Mets.
  • New Jersey 3 Carolina 2 (OT): The Devils took back the home ice advantage in a back-and-forth game that ended with them on top. Zach Parise got New Jersey on the board first, but Carolina quickly answered, scoring 30 seconds later. Brian Gionta scored at the end of the first period, and Carolina answered near the end of the second to tie the game. But, Travis Zajac scored five minutes into OT to left the Devils to victory.
