Robinson Cano hit a critical two-run double to turn a one-run deficit into a one-run lead in the Yankees' 6-4 over the Blue Jays on Saturday. The Yankees trailed entering the seventh and didn't get a runner to second base in the third through sixth innings. But a two-out rally helped them keep a half-game lead over the Red Sox in the American League East. Bartolo Colon turned in another middling outing -- he allowed four runs in 6 1/3 innings -- but got enough help from his offense and the bullpen. Francisco Cervelli hit another home run, and David Robertson worked two innings for his first save of the season. Mariano Rivera should return to being available on Sunday as the Yankees go for a sweep.
For the second time in two weeks, the Mets rallied from a huge deficit only to squander a late-inning lead. After wasting a mammoth comeback against the Brewers on Aug. 20, the Mets did the same against the Nationals in an 8-7 loss. They trailed 5-0 but came back to take the lead. Bobby Parnell blew the save and took the loss, but not without some help from Terry Collins. The Mets intentionally walked Roger Bernardina to pitch to Ryan Zimmerman. That didn't work out as Zimmerman won the game with a two-run single. Nick Evans hit his fourth homer of the year.
