Another Day, Another Dollar

The Good

Damon, Swisher and A-Rod really came alive going a combined 9-14 with 5 RBI's and 5 runs scored. The Yankees scored 7 runs in the 9th to turn an otherwise close game into a blow out.

Sabathia pitched a solid 7 innings allowing 1 run with 9 strikeouts. 9! Hughes got a 4 out save.

The Bad

In comes Bruney, out goes the ball. Is anyone else noticing this trend?

The Ugly

Can't really say there's much ugly from this game. It was a well played game, and the Yankees continue to roll. With the Rays victory over the Red Sox, the Yankees now stand 7.5 games ahead in the division. At 85 wins we are just 4 games shy of our season total in 2008.

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. Hinske hit a homerun, his second in as many days, as he's trying to make up for lost time spent in Pittsburgh.

Jorge Posada 19hr = $19.00
Hideki Matsui 23hr = $23.00
Derek Jeter 17hr = $17.00
Mark Teixeira 32hr = $32.00
Nick Swisher 23hr = $23.00
Robinson Cano 22hr = $22.00
Johnny Damon 24hr = $24.00
Melky Cabrera 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 23hr = $23.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 7hr = $7.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 2hr = $2.00
Total = $208.00
