• Yankees 7, Phillies 3: For the first time since 2000 and the 27th time in franchise history, the New York Yankees are the World Champions of baseball. The Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies four games to two behind the bat of Hideki Matsui and the solid pitching of Andy Pettitte. Matsui was 3-4 in the game, including two two-RBI hits off Phillies starter Pedro Martinez and two more RBI against Phillies reliever Chad Durbin. Matsui's first hit came in the 2nd inning when he crushed a two-run home run to right field to put the Yankees ahead 2-0. His second run scoring hit was a two-run single in the 3rd inning with bases loaded and two outs, putting the Yankees up 4-1. Matsui, who was 2-2 with a home run against Martinez in Game 2 of the Series, was found to be Pedro's "daddy" in a mid-game paternity test. In his third at bat, Matsui hit a two-run double off Durbin to put the Yankees ahead 7-1 in the 5th. Matsui, playing in what could have been his final game as a Yankee, finished the game with 6 RBI, tying a World Series record held by Bobby Richardson in 1960.

    Pettitte, like CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett before him, pitched Game 6 on three days rest. While there was some question about how Pettitte would do on short rest, the 37-year old veteran with the most wins in MLB post-season history, pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on four hits, but also allowed 5 walks. Pettitte was knocked out of the game after a two-run homer by Ryan Howard, which brought the score to 7-3. Pitching in relief for the Yankees, Joba Chamberlain pitched 1 inning before Damaso Marte came into the game for a huge two-out strikeout of Chase Utley with two runners on base. Marte faced one more batter, striking out Ryan Howard, before Mariano Rivera entered the game — to a special edition Enter Sandman sung by a fat lady — for the five-out save.

    Pettitte, Rivera, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada each won their fifth World Series title with the Yankees — one for the thumb, if you will. Following the game, Hideki Matsui was named the World Series MVP after going 8-13 with three home runs and 8 RBI in the series.
  • Devils 3, Capitals 2: The Devils were able to capitalize (mehehe) with two third-period power play goals by Niclas Bergfors against a Washington team that was without Alex Ovechkin. It was only New Jersey's second win of the season at home.
  • Sabres 3, Islanders 0: Buffalo was able to avenge their loss to the Isles on Saturday and snap New York's four-game win streak.
  • Nuggets 122, Nets 94: The Nets remain without a win, falling to 0-5, as the visiting Nuggets remain undefeated at 5-0.
  • Pacers 101, Knicks 89: Indiana picked up its first victory of the season by outscoring the Knicks by 13 points in the 4th quarter.
