Yankees Blast Red Sox

The Good

Lots of good with the offense. Matsui went on a rampage, hitting two homeruns and driving in 7 runs. Jeter went 3-6 with 2 RBI's, and A-Rod went 4-4 including a triple. Two other players had at least 3 hits: Melky Cabrera and Mark Teixeira. Marte came into the game and got two outs without any problems. That's good.

The Bad

Bruney and Mitre were plain awful. Bruney because he was walking in runs as he went 1.1 innings, with 3 walks. The two runs he allowed were Pettitte's but I still blame him. Mitre handled the 8th inning fine, but then he gave up 4 runs in the 9th.

The Ugly

Pettitte was cruising through the first four innings, but then he hit a wall. He finished with 5 innings and 7 runs, 5 earned. The pitching was awful yesterday, it just so happens that the Red Sox pitching was even worse.

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, Hideki Matsui was on a mission for the children. He hit two homeruns to keep the kids healthy.

Jorge Posada 15hr = $15.00
Hideki Matsui 21hr = $21.00
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
Eric Hinske 5hr = $5.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 1hr = $1.00
Total = $185.00
