Yankees Win...Barely

The Good

The Yankees scored 11 runs! Much respect to Jesus Montero, the baby-faced baby DH in the lineup who hit 2 homeruns and drew a walk, and of course Robinson Cano, who hit a grandslam. Pitching was pretty awful, but I admit it was nice seeing Scott Proctor again. I thought his cyborg arm looked decent yesterday.

The Bad

Mariano came very close to blowing the save. Close enough to make me sweat, and I don't like sweating as it makes me want to shower thus using up the planets most essential natural resource: water. So if Mariano doesn't want to be responsible for the decreasing water supply he needs to lock these saves down! On a side note, Mo is just 4 saves of tieing and 5 saves of passing Trevor Hoffman on the all-times saves list.

The Ugly

Freddy Garcia's start. The final line included 7 runs in 2.2 innings. That's the problem with pitchers who rely on deception. Sometimes, they're hung over.

Bats for Babies

The Yankees went to bat for the babies and came up with 4 homeruns, 2 from Monters, and 1 each from Cano and Teixeira. That's $8 for the babies at the Children's Health Fund.

Mark Teixeira 36hr = $72
Curtis Granderson 38hr = $76
Russell Martin 17hr = $34
Alex Rodriguez 15hr = $30
Jorge Posada 12hr = $24
Robinson Cano 24hr = $48
Andruw Jones 11hr = $22
Brett Gardner 6hr = $12
Nick Swisher 22hr = $44
Derek Jeter 5hr = $10
Francisco Cervelli 3hr = $6
Eduardo Nunez 4hr = $8
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Eric Chavez 1hr = $2
Jesus Montero 2hr = $4
Total = $394
