NEW YORK - Five pitchers combined on a one-hitter for the New York Yankees, and Jason Giambi homered again Friday night in a rain-delayed 2-0 victory over the suddenly slumping Mets.
Endy Chavez's leadoff single in the sixth inning against Ron Villone (2-1) was the only hit for the Mets as the crosstown rivals opened the second leg of their annual Subway Series.
Chavez was picked off first base, and the Mets didn't manage another baserunner.
Andy Phillips added an RBI single, sending the Mets to their fourth straight defeat. The NL East leaders hadn't dropped three in a row all season before getting swept in Boston this week.
Orlando Hernandez (4-8) pitched seven effective innings against his former team, returning to the mound following a 63-minute delay in the fourth. Still, he lost his third consecutive outing and fell to 0-3 in three starts against the Yankees the past two seasons.
  • DEVIL RAYS 11, NATIONALS 1: Carl Crawford hit a pair of two-run homers and Tampa Bay beat host Washington.
    Rocco Baldelli, Jorge Cantu and Damon Hollins also homered for Tampa Bay, which set a season high for runs and tied their season best with 17 hits. The Devil Rays finished June with a 14-13 record.
  • BRAVES 5, ORIOLES 3: Marcus Giles broke a sixth-inning tie with a two-run single and Chuck James won his second straight start as host Atlanta ended a miserable June with a victory.
  • REDS 9, INDIANS 8: Adam Dunn's grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning off closer Bob Wickman vaulted host Cincinnati.
  • TIGERS 7, PIRATES 6: Carlos Guillen's two-run triple highlighted Detroit's four-run third inning and the Tigers overcame Kenny Rogers' shaky start to hand the Pirates their 14th loss in 15 games.
  • TWINS 8, BREWERS 2: Justin Morneau and Torii Hunter hit back-to-back home runs, Brad Radke sailed through seven innings and visiting Minnesota beat Milwaukee for their eighth straight victory.
  • RANGERS 3, ASTROS 1: Mark Teixeira scored the go-ahead run after ending the longest hitless streak since the start of his career and host Texas beat Houston to end a five-game losing streak.
  • ROYALS 7, CARDINALS 5 (10): Pinch-hitter Matt Stairs' sacrifice fly in the 10th inning drove in the go-ahead run and visiting Kansas City beat St. Louis to hand their cross-state rivals their ninth loss in 10 games.
  • BLUE JAYS 8, PHILLIES 1: Lyle Overbay homered twice and had five RBIs in the first two innings and the host Blue Jays won their fourth straight game.
  • WHITE SOX 6, CUBS 2: Juan Uribe homered and had five RBIs as the visiting White Sox beat the Cubs.
