New York Knicks defeat LA Clippers 99-93. If the Clippers won this final game of the season, they would have clinched the four-seed and home court advantage in the playoffs. Instead they will have to hope that Memphis loses at home to the Dwight Howard-less Orlando Magic on Thursday. Chris Paul dressed for the Clippers, but suffering a strained left groin no matter how mild it was he did not enter the game.

Tampa Bay Rays defeat LA Angels 3-2. Angels' manager Mike Scioscia hoping to spark some offense put Bobby Abreu in the leadoff spot. It seemed to work as Abreu hit a leadoff double to start the game. But then the normal Angels effete offense showed up in the Great Indoors in Tampa and did nothing to help back up C.J. Wilson. Wilson went seven innings giving up two runs striking out 11 dropping his record to 2-2.

Atlanta Braves defeat LA Dodgers 4-2. Javy Guerra not only suffered a blown save and the loss, but also a line drive to his right cheek. Matt Kemp hit his 10th homer of the season.
