2 out of 3 ain't bad, again
by SG

The Yankees concluded their nine game homestand at 6-3 this afternoon with an exciting 4-1 win over Toronto, taking their third straight home series in this homestand and fourth overall, despite losing the first game on Friday night. Mike Mussina continued to pitch extremely well, moving to 4-1 and lowering his ERA to 2.31. He hit 92 mph in the sixth inning, and really did a wonderful job of moving the ball around against a very good-hitting Blue Jays team. I hope Randy Johnson took notes.

Andy Phillips hit his first HR of the season to tie the game at 1. Alex Rodriguez, who's in a bad slump these days, took two very close pitches that looked like strikes to me but were called balls to walk in the go-ahead run with two outs, and then Jason Giambi hit a massive HR to give the Yankees a little breathing room. Kyle Farnsworth came in throwing absolute gas, and Mariano Rivera retired four straight to close the game out.

With Boston falling to Tampa 5-4 despite Joe Maddon's best attempt at handing Boston another cheap win, the Yankees have moved into a tie for first place with the Red Sox. Apparently there's a series with Boston coming up or something? Larry will put something up about that later on tonight, I frankly don't have much to say about it right now. I'm just bracing myself for the onslaught of Damon crap we will have to be subjected to.
