Jeter Rakes While Pettitte Limits the Damage

The Good

Though he allowed four runs in the first two innings, Pettitte limited the damage and gave his team a chance to win. Jeter had three hits and four RBI, including a game-tying home run and a go-ahead triple. Mo closed the game out, throwing only three pitches in the ninth.

The Bad

The first two innings were bad.

The Ugly

After Jeter hit a go-ahead triple, he went and sat in the Chicago dugout. When asked what he was doing there, he responded, "This is my house, b----!" The White Sox wept. Collectively. As an organization.

O'Jeter Rules!

Jeter was the only player with a home run last night. His blast tied him for number 1 on the all time home runs by players named Derek Jeter list.

Posada 5hr = $5
Granderson 2hr = $2
Cano 8hr = $8
Swisher 2hr = $2
Jeter 4hr = $4
Johnson 1hr = $1
Rodriguez 2hr = $2
Teixeira 2hr = $2
Thames 1hr = $1
Total = $27

Not only is Jeter still tops on the Jeter home runs list, but Kay noted that he passed Griffey to become the active hits leader.

The Sox scored those 4 runs on a collection of cheap hits (even Konerko's HR to right was cheap) and the 3B umpire's failure to call Donny Lucy (!) out for running out of the baseline. I'm glad the Yankees didn't let all that slide.

Donny Lucy. That's awful. Donald Lucy. There's really no way to fix that.
