Boston tops NYY 5-3
Philly gets a break with weather and beats Mets 2-0. Game called in the 5th inning.

Boston is 21-13 and is 1st in the AL East.
Philly is 19-15 and is 2nd in the NL East.

"Get Well Soon" wishes to Philly center fielder Aaron Rowand, who saved the game by catching the ball and getting the out, but slammed into the fence and broke his nose in the process. Top of the 1st, 2 outs, bases were loaded (all walked, no less). Xavier Nady slams a deep drive, and Rowand makes the play. He was admitted to Thomas Jefferson with no return date.

Also, kudos to Boston's Jonathan Papelbon for his 13th save, and for holding down a 0.44 ERA.

Special thanks to our Mid-Atlantic correspondant Nick Basehore! (snark snark)

And kudos to the Yankees for wasting Mariano Rivera by pitching him in 9th with Sox on top 4-3, only to cough up the insurance run. WOOHOO!

Sox, BTW, are 3-1 in the season series vs. the Yanks.
