Sabathia went 8 innings allowing 2 runs for the win. Rivera closed it out. Jeter and Matsui did their fair share with Jeter tieing the game at 2, and Matsui hitting the go ahead homerun. Gardner made an amazing throw to home to catch Barajas trying to score.
Against a guy like Tallet, we weren't able to do much.
A-Rod's 0-5 night has him at a .143 average. He needs to step his game up!
Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children
The "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog joined Johnny Damon's home run 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 home runs hit and the money donated throughout the season. Matsui hit the go ahead home run last night, and added one more to the cause.
Jorge Posada 4hr = $4.00
Hideki Matsui 4hr = $4.00
Derek Jeter 4hr = $4.00
Mark Teixeira 7hr = $7.00
Nick Swisher 8hr = $8.00
