Niemann Will Not Be Outdone

The Good

We continue to be impressed by Hector Noesi, who sat on our bench for about a month before Girardi remembered he was on the roster and could be used in games. He pitched 3.1 scoreless innings in relief of Bartolo Colon. Jeter moved one hit closer to 3,000 with a double off Niemann, but would hold there. Cano hit his 15th homerun of the season.

The Bad

Bartolo Colon lasted 5.2 innings and gave up 5 runs on 10 hits and 4 walks. His one strikeout simply wasn't enough against an offense that was considered to be significantly weaker with the loss of Carlos Pena and Carl Crawford.

The Ugly

It was a sad, sad sight to behold. Kyle Farnsworth shutting out his former team with a scoreless 9th. If only he had done that with us, he might still be in New York.

Cano Gets the Children Money

The Yankees scored one run, and it was from a solo shot by Robinson Cano. That's $2 for the children at the Children's Health Fund.

Mark Teixeira 25hr = $50
Curtis Granderson 25hr = $50
Russell Martin 10hr = $20
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 9hr = $18
Robinson Cano 15hr = $30
Andruw Jones 4hr = $8
Brett Gardner 4hr = $8
Nick Swisher 10hr = $20
Derek Jeter 2hr = $4
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 3hr = $6
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Total = $244
