• MLB: Red Sox 14, Orioles 8. Daniel Cabrera's line for the Orioles: 1.1 IP, 3 hits, 7 runs, 7 walks, 1 strikeout, and an ERA higher than Kobe Bryant's points per game.

• NBA: Pistons 87, Magic 89. Darko Does Detroit: 8 points and 4 rebounds for Darko in the win over the Pistons, who were without Rip Hamilton.

• NHL: Flyers 4, Sabres 2. The Flyers clinch a playoff spot and get a win in Buffalo, where they hadn't won since 2001. I continue to believe that Ken Hitchcock and Captain Kangaroo are the same person. Well, they would be, if Captain Kangaroo wasn't, you know... dead.
