On May 7, 2010, Lance Orton and Duane Jackson, who were instrumental foiling a terrorist’s attempt to set off a car bomb in Times Square, are honored at Citi Field prior to the Mets game against San Francisco. The two street vendors alerted the police after they observed a parked car on 45th Street had started to fill with smoke and was making popping sounds.
In the Braves’ 7-6 victory over Washington at Turner Field, Justin and B.J. Upton both homer in the same game for the fifth time, setting the major-league record for brothers. The Atlanta teammates, who each go deep off Stephen Strasburg, surpass the mark they previously shared with Jeremy and Jason Giambi and Vladimir and Wilton Guerrero.

At the waiver deadline, the White Sox trade Adam Dunn to the A’s for 23 year-old minor-league pitcher Nolan Sanburn, who is 3-1 with a 3.28 ERA along with 73 strikeouts in 71.1 innings hurling for Class A Stockton. Oakland hopes their new slugger, a 34 year-old two-time All-Star with 460 career homers, can provide some offensive punch for the contending team, which recently has been slumping.
