Yankee Bats Come Alive Against Blue Jays, Pitching Stays Asleep

The Good

Johnny Damon had quite the offensive game last night going 3-5 with a homerun and 3 RBI's. Swisher also had a homerun and a 2-5 night, and Cano hit two doubles. Hughes and Robertson each had an inning of work with two strikeouts a piece, and no runs.

The Bad

Aceves pitched well in relief, but gave up a solo homerun that takes away some of the sweetness.

The Ugly

Mitre went 4.1 innings allowing 3 runs. His ERA is at 7.50. Do we not have anyone better?

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. Last night, Nick Swisher and Johnny Damon hit homeruns for the cause.

Jorge Posada 13hr = $13.00
Hideki Matsui 16hr = $16.00
Derek Jeter 11hr = $11.00
Mark Teixeira 27hr = $27.00
Nick Swisher 18hr = $18.00
Robinson Cano 16hr = $16.00
Johnny Damon 19hr = $19.00
Melky Cabrera 10hr = $10.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 19hr = $19.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 5hr = $5.00
Total = $159.00
