Yanks Take Second Game Against Rangers

The Good

Garcia went six scoreless innings. That was very good. Teixeira and Cano both went yard. Mo closed it out, literally, with his eyes closed.

The Bad

Soriano takes this one. Asked to hold a three-run lead, Soriano went to work making it a one-run lead. If not for a touch of luck, Beltre would've put the Rangers ahead with a shot to right that just went foul. Once again, Soriano struggled with his fastball. At least he escaped with the lead intact.

The Ugly

A-Rod left the game after the sixth with what is being called a back and oblique strain. The real reason he left, however, is that he had tickets to see Spiderman: The Musical, and wanted to make sure to get to the performance on time. "They're preparing to shut down the show and completely revamp it. I didn't want to miss my chance to see it in its original form. I know it sucks, but I date Cameron Diaz, so I have to get used to $#!%%* visual spectacles."

More Cash for Ads

Actually the cash is for children, but I stand by my decision to go with a Jay-Z reference. Teixeira and Cano both homered in what was possibly the worst day for a baseball game ever. Four more dollars for the kids.

Mark Teixeira 5hr = $10
Curtis Granderson 3hr = $6
Russell Martin 3hr = $6
Alex Rodriguez 4hr = $8
Jorge Posada 5hr = $10
Robinson Cano 3hr = $6
Andruw Jones 1hr = $2
Total = $48
