Posada's hamstring appears to not be bothering him so much seeing as he went 2-4 with a homerun. Then again, it could be that he's limiting himself to either homeruns or singles because the hamstring is still bothering him, and he doesn't want to have to run that much. Only time will tell.
Tomko pitched 3 scoreless innings in relief. Robertson also pitched a scoreless inning. That's 4 scoreless innings from our bullpen.
Pettitte was quite bad going 5 innings and allowing 4 runs. Whether his back is still hurting him is anyone's guess, but I would guess yes.
We lost, and yes, I know we have to lose sometimes, but it doesn't make it any easier.
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. Posada hit another homerun since returning from hamstring resting vacation, and adds yet another jack to help get children healthy.
