Y's Beat A's

The Good

A solid pitching performance from Ivan Nova, and a 12 hit offensive outburst drove the Yankees past the Oakland Athletics.  Nova went 7 innings, allowing 3 runs, and the Yankee offense combined for 6 runs, including 3 homeruns, one each from Swisher, Cano, and Teixiera.

The Bad

Jeter's 0-5 night didn't look so great.  Especially when 3 of the outs were strikeouts.  Today he has the opportunity to turn that around.

The Ugly

After going 1-3 with a double, Martin's average has reached a robust .177.  And just one year ago, the Yankees were minimizing Posada's role because he couldn't hit.  Was Posada anywhere close to hitting this poorly?

So Much Money for the Babies!

2, no 4, no 6, Baker's Dozen!  Wait scratch that, go back to 6, that's how many dollars will be donated to the Children's Health fund after last night's efforts from Swisher, Cano and Teixeira.  Heroes all of them.

Raul Ibanez 9hr = $18
Nick Swisher 8hr = $64
Andruw Jones 4hr = $8
Derek Jeter 5hr = $10
Curtis Granderson 14hr = $28
Alex Rodriguez 7hr = $14
Robinson Cano 6hr = $12
Mark Teixeira 6hr = $12
Eric Chavez 3hr = $6
Russell Martin 4hr = $8
Jayson Nix 2hr = $4 

Total 68hr = $136
