• Yankees 4, A's 3: Who was that pitcher, and what did he do with A.J. Burnett? The righty threw six innings of three-run ball, walking two and striking out eight, to bounce back from an August he'd like to forget. Mark Teixeira, the hottest-hitting Yankee, had an RBI single and an RBI double among his three hits. He knocked in three runs .Joba Chamberlain, Boone Logan, Kerry Wood and Mariano Rivera combined to pitch three scoreless innings of relief. CC Sabathia goes for the sweep on Thursday.
  • Braves 4, Mets 1: Not much new here. The Mets' ship is sinking. Mike Pelfrey gave up four runs in five innings as the Mets fell for the third straight time in Atlanta. They'll try to avoid a four-game sweep Thursday night.
  • Liberty 77, Fever 74: Cappie Pondexter led the way with 30 points and a go-ahead jumper with 28 seconds to go to put the Liberty in their second conference finals in three years.
