Tuesday night recap

The Mets scored five runs in the eighth to beat the Braves, thanks to the combined effort (or lack thereof) of Atlanta relievers Jeff Bennett and Will Ohman. Together, the two allowed the five runs on just two hits and three walks.

It might look like the Yankees bullpen blew the game against the Blue Jays, but it's tough to put the blame solely on the pitching. Jose Veras picked up the loss, but if a position player was able to get that distinction, it would've been Johnny Damon, who dropped two fly balls in the game. See the one the cost them the game here.

The Tigers scored nine runs in the seventh inning to beat the Rangers, scoring the runs off of Vicente Padilla and Wilson Madrigal.

The Padres rallied for three runs in the top of the ninth against the Diamondbacks and closer Brandon Lyon, but it wasn't enough. Tony Pena would record the save.
