The Good

Ichiro's heroics on Wednesday sparked the Yankee offense.  "I realized I had slipped into a small ball mentality."  Explained Swisher.  "Bunting and crap like that.  But then I remembered that bunting isn't the Yankee way.  Homeruns and alcoholism is!"  Swisher hit a grandslam yesterday.  Ichiro hit a homerun as well, and Jeter went 2-4 with 2 RBI's with his injured leg.

The Bad

Phil Hughes went 5 innings allowing 4 runs, but he didn't feel like control was the issue.  "I had pinpoint control." Said Hughes.  "I could throw any pitch I wanted for a ball.  Do you know how hard it is to throw all your pitches for balls?  Its impossible!  For mere mortals."

He did strike out 9, so that was a positive. 

The Ugly

Cory Wade did not strike out 9, he struck out one, but gave up 3 runs to acheive that feat.

Homeruns Galore!

Well, so long as two=galore.  Swisher and Ichiro put the kids back at the forefront of our minds, with their $4 donation towards their health.
