Gaudin Passable in Yankee Win

The Good

Although Gaudin didn't qualify for the win, he did give the Yankees 4.1 innings of scoreless baseball. He walked 5, and it seemed like every batter worked a full count, but he got the job done. Jeter got another pair of hits last night. It does seem like Jeter heats up in August. Last season, he was struggling in the .270 average range until he turned it on in August. He finished at .300.

Marky T drove in all 3 runs yesterday with an RBI groundout and a 2-run homerun.

The Bad

Aceves gave up a couple runs going 2.1 innings in relief. However, he did avoid the big blow when he releived Gaudin in the 5th with 1 out and bases loaded, and got the double play ball.

The Ugly

Cano went 0-3 with 3 strikeouts. Not a good game for him.

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. Marky T hit a roundtripper to put the Yankees ahead for good. MVP anyone?

Jorge Posada 15hr = $15.00
Hideki Matsui 19hr = $19.00
Derek Jeter 15hr = $15.00
Mark Teixeira 31hr = $31.00
Nick Swisher 20hr = $20.00
Robinson Cano 18hr = $18.00
Johnny Damon 22hr = $22.00
Melky Cabrera 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 21hr = $21.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
