• Yankees 8 Toronto 2: New York had a great night at the plate, despite missing four starters from their Opening Day lineup. Brett Gardner had a triple and a home run while driving in three runs. Mark Teixeira had two hits and two RBI’s and Johnny Damon continued his hot hitting with two more hits. All of the runs supported Andy Pettitte, who pitched six innings of up and down baseball. Pettitte only allowed two runs, but he walked four batters and gave up five hits. If Toronto had been able to get a clutch hit, this would have been a very different game. But, they didn’t and now the Yankees have a chance to climb back to .500 tomorrow.
  • Atlanta 8 Mets 7 (12 innings): Should Jose Reyes have been running? Absolutely, but his play isn’t the only reason they lost. Down by a run, Reyes led off the 11th with a shot to left field that he thought was out of the park. But, the ball stayed in and Reyes’ lack of hustle left him on second, when he probably should have been on third. Still, the Mets got him to third with one out and had two chances to tie the game. But, Carlos Beltran took three-straight strikes for the second out and Gary Sheffield was called out on strikes to end the game.
