Well, for starters Wang pitched a complete game 2-hitter giving up one homerun that in fairness should have been caught. Giambi came alive a little with two homeruns this series, and both Molina and Alberto Gonzalez stepped up with their bats. Cano had a couple hits and an RBI on the Saturday game but couldn't stay consistent. Mike Mussina pitched a pretty good game until he went after Manny. Ohlendorf and Bruney held things down in the bullpen.
Phil Hughes lasted 3 innings for a second consecutive start, and the team as a whole could not get the big hit to save their lives. A-Rod was particularly awful in this stretch. Especially on that 3 pitch strike out to Papelbon in the 8th inning with two runners on and down by one run on Saturday.
Kevin Youkillis. That is one ugly looking dude.
Respect Jeter's Gangster is For the Children
The Respect Jeter's Gangster blog has joined Johnny Damon's homerun club, which helps the Children's Health Fund. We are set to donate $1.00 for every homerun the Yankees hit this season. We used to link to the Children's Health Fund page, but we believe that's what shut down our blog. That's right, charity got our blog shut down. Oh well, what can you do? Jason Giambi jacked a pair of homeruns over the weekend to help the cause.
Melky Cabrera 2hr = $2.00
Alex Rodriguez 2hr = $2.00
Hideki Matsui 2 hr = $2.00
Bobby Abreu 1hr = $1.00
Jorge Posada 1hr = $1.00
Jason Giambi 2hr = $2.00
Total = $10.00
