• Mets 10, Pirates 1: A week ago, Mets fans couldn't stop fretting after a disastrous loss to the Phillies. Now their team is in first place and has won six straight games. John Maine pitched six innings of one-run ball and Jose Reyes had three hits and three RBIs. Sandy Alomar Sr. managed the team in lieu of Jerry Manuel, who was suspended for making contact with an umpire on Thursday. The Pirates stink, yes, but the Mets are rolling. The days of worrying about David Wright's clutch hitting -- foolish days to begin with -- are over. Now the Mets can worry about getting quality outings from their starters, their most legitimate concern.
  • Orioles 12, Yankees 5: If the second inning were removed from this game, the Yankees would have won. But that frame did happen, even if Phil Hughes didn't last to the end of it. Hughes gave up eight runs -- all earned -- in 1 2/3 innings as the Yankees followed up Friday's impressive win with this dud. They fell back to to games under .500 and have Joba Chamberlain going Sunday. Nick Swisher and Mark Teixeira did hit home runs. Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-3 with a walk.
