Melky's Magic Not Enough

The Good

Sabathia pitched a stellar game, going 8 innings and allowing 3 runs. Veras and Rivera releived with 2 innings of scoreless ball. Jeter went 3-5 out of the leadoff spot, and Melky also went 3-5 including a game tieing single in the 9th to put the game into extra innings. Marky T hit another homerun.

The Bad

In the 10th, the Yankees put two men on base with no outs, and failed to score. Its a wasted opportunity like that that loses the game for you.

The Ugly

Brett Tomko was not good as he pitched the 11th inning of a tied game. He walked two and gave up a hit as well as the go ahead run. Further more, Matsui went 0-5 and has his average at .241 on the season.

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. Marky T, whose been making up for lost time, hit a broken bat homerun yesterday.

Jorge Posada 5hr = $5.00
Hideki Matsui 5hr = $5.00
Derek Jeter 7hr = $7.00
Mark Teixeira 13hr = $13.00
Nick Swisher 9hr = $9.00
Robinson Cano 8hr = $8.00
Johnny Damon 10hr = $10.00
Melky Cabrera 5hr = $5.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 7hr = $7.00
Brett Gardner 2hr = $2.00
Total = $72.00

Does anyone know why Aceves wasn't available yesterday? I would have used him over Tomko.

I think they were reserving him in case Hughes got knocked out the game early.
