• Yankees 5, A's 0: CC Sabathia had no trouble with the A's. The Associated Press even posted a photo of the Yankees ace yawning in the dugout! He pitched eight innings of scoreless, one-hit ball before Jonathan Albaldejo finished the shutout. Curtis Granderson had two homers and Jorge Posada added another as the Yankees finished a four-game sweep. They moved 1 1/2 games up on the idle Rays in the American League East. They play three day games against the Blue Jays starting Friday.

  • Mets 4, Braves 2: Hey, a Mets win! Johan Santana left after five innings. The Mets said they were saving him for the playoffs he is day-to-day with a strained pectoral muscle. David Wright, who had done very little against the Braves this season, hit a home run. The Mets move on to Chicago on Friday.
