  • The Mets had a 2-1 lead heading into the bottom of the eighth in their tilt with the Phils last night. Jon Niese had pitched seven very strong innings, but the bullpen simply could not hold up, as Bobby Parnell and Pedro Feliciano gave up seven consecutive hits to give the Phillies a 7-2 lead headed into the ninth. Despite a Mike Hessman homer, the Mets lost the game - and probably their season - at Citizens Bank, 7-5. Amazin' Avenue cleans the wound.

  • The Yankees had their version of a Luis Castillo play, when Francisco Cervelli dropped an easy pop up, and lost 6-3 to Boston in the first of their three-game set. Boston's now only five games back of New York, as Tampa stays 1/2 game behind in the wake of their 2-1 loss to Toronto. Mark Teixeira homered for the Yankees in the loss, which was credited to Javy Vasquez. Pinstripe Alley addresses the situation.

  • Though it wasn't expected, no ruling on the Ilya Kovalchuk situation was given by arbitrator Richard Bloch. We shall now wait until Monday.  Former Devil John Madden signed a 1-year deal with the Minnesota Wild.

  • The Liberty beat Washington at the Garden, 85-77.  They were led once again by Cappie Pondexter with 23 points.  The Libs are 9-2 since the All-Star break, best in the WNBA.  They move into third place with a 16-11 record.
