• Oakland 3 New York 0: Brett Tomko, a Yankee for a couple of months this season, pitched five scoreless innings against his former team and the A’s bullpen finished the job. A.J. Burnett went the distance in the loss. The Red Sox were off, so the lead is down to seven games.
  • San Francisco 10 Mets 1: Livan Hernandez didn’t have it and things got out of hand in the sixth inning as the Giants scored three times to make it a 6-1 game. They added three more in the eighth and the depleted Mets’ offense couldn’t get back into the game.
