So We Can Beat the Angels

The Good

Joba stood up for 4 innings and only allowed 1 run, a homerun by Vlad, and who doesn't give up a homerun to Vlad? Swisher and Cano went 2-4 with Swisher hitting a homerun. Aceves went 2.1 innings and allowed 1 run in relief. Mariano Rivera recorded his 40th save of the season. Teixeira went 3-4 with a triple and 2 RBI's.

Lastly, the fleet footed Brett Gardner stole third and scored on an error to break the tie the Yankees were in. Cano then went and drove in another run to put the Yankees ahead 5-3, but it was Gardner's fleet footedness that gave us that win. Cheers to Gardner!

The Bad

Phil Hughes came in the 8th and recorded both a blown save and a win. He gave up a run, allowing the Angels to tie, but then the Yankee offense got it back.

The Ugly

Teixeira was a homerun short of the cycle, and batting lefty at Yankee stadium, how did he not hit one? Marky T needs to think about what he did.

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. Nick Swisher, who has been quite the contributor this season, hit yet another homerun for the children.

Jorge Posada 21hr = $21.00
Hideki Matsui 24hr = $24.00
Derek Jeter 17hr = $17.00
Mark Teixeira 35hr = $35.00
Nick Swisher 27hr = $27.00
Robinson Cano 23hr = $23.00
Johnny Damon 24hr = $24.00
Melky Cabrera 12hr = $12.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 25hr = $25.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 7hr = $7.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 2hr = $2.00
Total = $222.00
