The New York Yankees beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 and leveled the best of 7 set of the World Series to 1-1.

The reigning World Series champions were no match for the Yankees’ pitcher, A.J. Burnett, on Thursday night at the new Yankees’ stadium in the Bronx. Burnett stopped the top 4 Phillies’ hitters, who went 0-for-10 against him. Burnett struck out nine batters and only allowed 4 hits in seven innings, making this his best pitching game of the post season. This was also his first ever World Series appearance.

Mark Teixiera blasted a solo homer in the fourth inning off a high change up by Pedro Martinez to even the score 1-1. Hideki Matsui hit his 8th US career playoff homer to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead in the 6th inning.

Unfortunately for the second night in a row, Yankees playoff star Alex Rodriguez had three strike outs, continuing his World Series slump to 0-for-8.

Starting today, the series shifts to Philadelphia for games three through five where Cole Hamels is set to face Andy Pettitte. In 40 World Series appearances the New York Yankees have won 26 titles, which is twice as many as the Philadelphia Phillies.

The New Jersey Nets will start their season on Wednesday, October 28 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Their home opener is Friday, October 30 against the Orlando Magic.

For the 2008-2009 season, the Nets were 34-48 and 3rd in the Atlantic division, and they are prepared to do better than that in 2010. They have a great young talent, solid management, and a good head coach. The Nets have successfully found two quality players to make a strong foundation for their team. The Nets have Brook Lopez, a player on the all-rookie team, as center, and Devin Harris, an all-star, as point guard.

As a rookie, Lopez exhibited great footwork, instincts, and toughness. He averaged almost 2 blocks, 8 rebounds, and 13 points. The only thing he needs is to gain more experience. Harris is the most experienced player in the projected starting line up. He is also the only 20-point scorer returning to the team. Last season he averaged 21.3 points last season, his career high. His only problem is that he has been injury prone, but when he is healthy he is a key player.

The team made a lot of changes over the summer. The Nets have made some new additions including 3 new guards, Rafer Alston, Courtney Lee, Terrence Williams, and forward Tony Battie. Some key subtractions from the team are Maurice Ager and Vince Carter. The team looks strong with its returning players Devin Harris, Josh Boone, Brook Lopez, Eduardo Najera, Bobby Simmons, Sean Williams, Keyon Dooling, Christ Douglas-Roberts, Trenton Hassel, Jarvis Hayes, and Yi Jianlian.

The New York Jets suffered a 16-13 defeat on Sunday by the Buffalo Bills at Giants Stadium. After starting the season 3-0, this was the Jets’ third straight loss, and until this game the Bills had lost 12 of their previous 15 games.

Although the Jets had 318 yards on the ground, they were unable to be victorious as they fell in overtime. The loss could fall much on the shoulders of Rookie quarterback, Mark Sanchez. In Sunday’s game, he completed 10 of 29 passes for 119 yards, threw 5 interceptions, and no touchdowns. With an unfortunate interception pass to wide receiver, Braylon Edwards, Mark Sanchez set up the Bills’ winning drive.

Despite the poor performance, Sanchez will remain on the field. Since beating Kellen Clemens for the job, it is clear that Sanchez, the fifth overall pick out of Southern California, has mostly struggled. However, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan plans on sticking with Mark Sanchez as his starting quarterback.

On the bright side, Jets running back Thomas Jones ran for a franchise record of 210 yards on 22 carries. This was also a career best. Another contributor was Leon Washington who had 99 yards on 15 carries. With some of the top rushing performances of the year, this game could have been an easy win for the Jets.

The New York Jets have their next game on October 25 against the Oakland Raiders in Oakland.

In week 6 of the NFL regular season, the previously unbeaten New York Giants were not able to maintain their perfect start to the season after Sunday’s game against the undefeated New Orleans Saints.

The Giants arrived with the meanest defense in the NFL and a 5-0 record. They left with 48 points on them and their first loss of the year. The Saints crushed the giants 48-27, and ruined Eli Manning’s homecoming.

For Eli Manning, it was his first game in the Louisiana Superdome, but it wasn’t exactly the start he was looking for. He was 14 of 31 for 178 yards. In the second quarter he was able to connect with Mario Manningham for a 15-yard score, but he overthrew a deep pass to Steve Smith that could have been a touchdown. In the fourth quarter, after the game was out of reach, Manning was replaced by David Carr.

New Orleans quarterback, Drew Brees was able to throw 369 yards and 4 touchdowns against the Giants, the team that is the NFL’s top-rated pass defense. With 7 touchdowns, the Saints scored the most points on the Giants in 10 years.

The New York Giants hope to redeem themselves with their next game against the Arizona Cardinals on October 25.

The New York Yankees won their second game of the American League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night at Yankee Stadium. The Bronx was wet, cold, and filled with the tension of playoff baseball, which was heightened as the exciting game went into extra innings.

The Yankees scored in the second and third inning, leaving the Angels scoreless the 5th inning when they were able to score 2 runs. After that, neither team was able to score a run until the top of the 11th inning when Chone Figgins hit a single to give the angels a 3-2 lead. Alex Rodriguez was able to tie the game in the bottom of the 11th with a home run over the right field wall.

In the bottom of the 13th inning, with 1 out and runners on first and second, Melky Cabrera hit a ground ball to the left of Maicer Izturis, the second basemen for the Angels. Izturis threw Cabrera’s grounder to try to force Robinson Cano out at second base, but his throw was wide of Angels’ short stop, Erick Aybar. The over throw let Jerry Hairston, pinch runner for the Yankees, score the winning run for the Yankees allowing them to come away with a 4-3 victory.

The Yankees have a commanding lead of 2-0 going in to game 3 of the series which is now moving to California. Get your New York Yankee Playoff Tickets now.

The New York Jets lost Sunday’s game to their AFC East rivals, the Miami Dolphins, 31-27. This is the second straight week that the Jets (3-2) have lost.

First year Jets’ coach, Rex Ryan made some creative calls during the game. In the first half he called 2 fake punts that turned out very well for the Jets, and they were able to score some points. In fact, they were the only points the Jets made in the first half of the game.

The first fake was called when the New York Jets were 6 yards short of a first down on their own 34-yard line. This fake was daring, but resulted in a first down and a 26-yard gain. This fake led to a touchdown pass to wide receiver Braylon Edwards from rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez to pull the Jets into a 7-7 tie.

Monday’s game was Braylon Edwards debut with the New York Jets. The 26-year old wide receiver scored his first touchdown of the season with his first catch of the game. Sanchez through to Edwardsin the end zone, and Edwards made the touchdown scoring grab. He caught 5 passes for 64 yards and helped set up 2 more touchdowns.

The second fake was not as risky. The Jets only needed 3 yards for a first down,were at Miami’s 40-yard line, and almost in field goal range. Brad Smith ran on a direct snap for a first down which set up a 40-yard field goal by Jay Feely. This particular field goal extended Feely’s consecutive field goal streak to 22.

The New York Jets have their next game on Sunday, October 18 against the Buffalo Bills.

The New York Yankees finished off their sweep of the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, October 11 and are another step closer to winning their 27th World Series title. This 4-1 victory over the Twins was their first playoff series win in 5 years. The 4-1 win for the Yankees was game 3 in the AL Division Series, and was also the final major league game to be played inside of the Metrodome before the Twins move to Target Field next season.

The Yankees were scoreless until the 7th inning when they were able to overcome strong pitching by former teammate Carl Pavano. Home runs by Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada took the first steps to the 4-1 victory over the Twins. Mariano Rivera ended the Twins’ season with the final four outs of the game and closed out Andy Pettitte’s 15th career postseason win.

For the first time since 2004, thanks to the three-game sweep against the Twins, the New York Yankees are now in the American League Championship Series. On Friday, October 16 the Yankees will play the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium to begin a best-of-seven set. This season the Yankees were 5-5 against the Angels, but in 2002 and 2005 the Angels were the team that eliminated the Yankees from the road to the World Series.
