  • The Yankees rebounded against the Mariners today, evening up the series at 1-1 with a 9-5 win in the Bronx over Seattle. The Yanks struck with five runs combined in the seventh and eighth. Both Robbie Cano and Jorge Posada drove in too. Javier Vasquez only lasted three innings, but Boone Logan got the win in relief, while Mariano Rivera scored his 25th save. Pinstripe Alley has more.

  • The Mets scored their first NL road series win of the season, which kept them from being the first team to go without a road series win inside their league since 1909. They beat the Pirates 5-1 out in the steel city, in a game that was called after five innings. Jon Niese technically threw a complete game to win his eighth of the season. David Wright's three-run bomb in the fifth gave the Mets the insurance they needed. Amazin' Avenue with the happy recap.

  • On to pre-season football, as the Giants home debut at the New Meadowlands Stadium ended in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 24-17. Rhett Bomar was average, considering he was asked to play the entire game, going 13-for-26 with 167 yards and an interception. Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Brown both ran for Giant touchdowns. Byron Leftwhich threw a touchdown pass, while the Steelers ran for over 100 yards as a team with eight different rushers. Big Blue View looks back.

  • The Jets participated in what must have been the most entertaining display of football ever, giving the fans in Charlotte a 9-3 victory over the Panthers in the pre-season. Mark Sanchez, Kellen Clemens and Mark Brunell combined to throw for 46 yards. Jimmy Clausen and Matt Moore each threw an interception for Carolina, while Nick Folk went 3-for-3 in the kicking game, his longest being a 49-yarder. Gang Green Nation has much to say.

  • The Red Bulls got a big win up in Canada, thrashing Toronto FC by a decisive 4-1 early Saturday. Four different Metro scorers, including Juan Pablo Angel and an own goal from Toronto FC, led the way. The Red Bulls now have a pronounced eight point lead over TFC for second place in the East. The remain six points back of first-place Columbus. Once a Metro with the story.
