Aceves' Trickery Stiffles Orioles

The Good

Aceves pitched 6 innings of shutout ball against the Orioles as the Yankees went on to win the game in the 9th. Cano had the game winning hit. A-Rod went 2-4 and Bruney-Marte-Rivera pitched 3 scoreless innings of their own to set up the win.

The Bad

Brian Burres' ERA going into the game against the Yankees was 6.32. So of course he pitched 7 shutout innings allowing just 3 hits in that time.

The Ugly

Jeter got drilled in the hand in the 9th inning and had to get removed from the game. It was oddly similar to the time when Daniel Cabrera, another Orioles pitcher drilled Jeter in the hand earlier in the season.

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. We will keep a running tally of the home runs hit and the money donated throughout the season. No homeruns yesterday, but no worries. Today's the last game of the stadium and I'm sure the Yankees are ready to give it a proper Bronx Bombing close.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 35hr = $35.00
Hideki Matsui 9 hr = $9.00
Bobby Abreu 19hr = $19.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 31hr = $31.00
Johnny Damon 15hr = $15.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 14hr = $14.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 6hr = $6.00
Derek Jeter 11hr = $11.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Xavier Nady 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 2 hr = $2.00
Ivan Rodriguez 2hr = $2.00
Richie Sexson 1hr = $1.00
Cody Ransom 2hr= $2.00
Total = $170.00
