• Red Sox 14, Yankees 1: A.J. Burnett didn't have it. If that wasn't clear after the Red Sox scored three runs in the first, it became clear when Alex Gonzalez poked one out over the Green Monster in the second. Kevin Youkilis also went deep -- twice -- as Boston snapped a five-game losing streak against New York, which still leads the American League East by 6 1/2 games. When all was said and done, Burnett allowed nine runs in five innings, striking out six and walking two. Nick Swisher's homer accounted for the lone Yankees run. CC Sabathia and Josh Beckett square off Sunday night in the rubber game.
  • Phillies 4, Mets 1: One night after getting to Cole Hamels, the Mets were shut down by J.A. Happ after celebrating the 40th anniversary of the 1969 championship team. Alas, no miracle appears in store for these Mets, who wasted five scoreless innings from Tim Redding and blew a 1-0 lead. Six relievers combined to give up four runs. Pedro Martinez returns to Queens to start Sunday afternoon's game.
