- Yankees 7, Twins 6: Andy Pettitte gave up two runs in the first inning, but the Yankees had his back. They got four runs before they made an out and six runs in the frame. Then they held on with Mariano Rivera sitting in the bullpen. Mark Teixeira had a three-run homer (as a righty) and a solo shot (as a lefty). Alex Rodriguez went deep right after Teixeira did in the first. Pettitte struck out three and walked one in his 6 1/3 innings. Edwar Ramirez, Jose Veras and Phil Coke combined to almost give up the lead. This game ended a streak of three straight walk-off wins, but the Yankees will take it. They have won six straight.
- Dodgers 3, Mets 2 (11 innings): After getting an impressive start from Tim Redding and tying the game in the eighth inning, the Mets threw it away. Ryan Church missed third base in the 11th, costing the Mets the go-ahead run. In the bottom of the inning, Carlos Beltran and Jeremy Reed both made errors, and the Dodgers walked off with the victory. The worst news of the day came earlier, as the Mets learned they would be without Carlos Delgdo for about two months. He has a hip injury similar to the one that kept the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez out of action.
