• Yankees 8, Padres 0: One day after getting devastating news about Chien-Ming Wang, the Yankees pounded the Padres to continue their domination of the Pacific Coast National League. Andy Pettitte, who put forth a second straight dominant outing got plenty of help, including two homers from Jason Giambi and a bomb to center field from Alex Rodriguez. A few words on Giambi, who was written off for dead: He has unbelievable numbers since May 1. The Yankees, who pitched back-to-back shutouts for the first time since 2005, are a season-high five games over the .500 mark. Darrell Rasner opposes Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy on Wednesday.

  • Angels 6, Mets 1: Jerry Manuel's tenure as Mets manager started with a loss. It also started with the new manager's decision to take Jose Reyes out of the game in the first inning after the shortstop appeared to suffer a minor injury. Reyes wasn't pleased, and he made a scene that included throwing his helmet and untucking his jersey. Manuel eventually got that under control, but his team couldn't control the game. Even the spark of Reyes' bat wouldn't have been enough against John Lackey, who was in complete control after allowing a first-inning run. David Wright went 1-for-4 as the designated hitter. Johan Santana gave up four runs in six innings to take the loss.
