Abreu, Giambi and Cabrera all had 2 hits, with one of Cabrera's being his 4th homerun of the season. Jeter knocked in a run, helping him break out of his recent skid. Farnsworth pitched a scoreless inning, and Hughes pitched a scoreless two inning start before a rain delay knocked him out of the game.
We lost. Not only did we lose, but we lost in the 9th inning with Chamberlain on the mound. Tragic.
Ohlendorf's 2 inning 5 run relief appearance. Hard to stay in games like that. Cano went 0-3 to further extend his hitting slump.
Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children
The "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog joined Johnny Damon's homerun club, which raises money for the Children's Health Fund. We are pledged to donate $1.00 for every homerun the Yankees hit this season. We will keep a running tally of the homeruns hit and the money donated throughout the season. Last night, the C&C boys were at it again. Well, one of them was anyway, as Melky Cabrera hit his 4th homerun of the season. For anyone counting at home, and I know that's all of you, that makes 4 homeruns for Melky on his quest to break Derek Jeter's single season homerun record, set by Derek Jeter:
Melky Cabrera 4hr = $4.00
Alex Rodriguez 4hr = $4.00
Hideki Matsui 3 hr = $3.00
Bobby Abreu 3hr = $3.00
Jorge Posada 1hr = $1.00
Jason Giambi 3hr = $3.00
Johnny Damon 3hr = $3.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 1hr = $1.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Total = $24.00
