  • The Yankees new toys didn't show off much tonight: Austin Kearns didn't play and Lance Berkman went 0-for-4, but that doesn't dispel the fact that Mark Teixeira, Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano homered en route to a 5-4 Yankees win, tying their three-game set with the Rays.  David Robertson's solid eighth inning in relief got him a win, as Robbie Cano's homer in the 9th gave the Yankees a one-run victory.  Pinstripe Alley has more.

  • The Yankees weren't done trading this weekend, acquiring Kerry Wood from the Indians to bolster the bullpen.

  • The Mets, again, did not do anything at the deadline.  They did, however, figure out a way to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks for the first time this season, 5-4.  The game was tied 4-4 in the 9th when Carlos Beltran's sac fly drove in the winner.  David Wright had another great game with two hits and three RBIs.  Hisanori Takahashi struck out 10 but got a no decision.  Amazin' Avenue with more.

  • Thierry Henry got his first MLS assist with the Red Bulls on Saturday night, but it wasn't enough, as Metro drew the Houston Dynamo 2-2 on the road.  Juan Pablo Angel scored twice for New York.
