An offensive explosion led to an 8-2 win over the invincable Toronto Blue Jays. Gardner led the charge with the first homerun of his career and Teixeira went 2-3 with a double and 2 RBI's. Pettitte pitched 6 innings of 2 run ball (1 earned) and Aceves put up 2 scoreless frames of his own.
Although he escaped with a scoreless inning of relief, Albaladejo walked the first two batters and gave up a hit in an 8-2 games. You need to throw strikes.
Nick the Swish was the only Yankee not invited to the hits party yesterday as he went 0-5. He has been absolutely abysmal of late, and has batted .100 in the month of May. You read that right, .100.
