  • K to start things off, but a trip to Rios and a single to Glaus and we’re down in the first. Ugh.

  • Four hits off the Rocket over three innings, but he seems to be working out of the jams OK. Let’s get him some runs here!!!

  • There we go Robby! Way to get the lead-off man on base!

  • Yanks managed to finally get to Marcum. Had Damon at third and Jeter on 1st. Abreau pops out and then ARod GIDP.

  • Clemens is giving up at least two hits an inning. Thankfully for the Yanks the Jays have not managed to take advantage of it and make him pay.

    Rob July 18, 2007, 8:33 pm
  • ARod with a great stroke to left for a double.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2007, 9:31 pm
  • ALEX!!!!!!!!! 2-1 Yanks coming from behind again after squirming out of trouble all game.

    YF July 18, 2007, 9:31 pm
  • Matsui follows with a single, Alex held. Still 0 out.

    YF July 18, 2007, 9:37 pm
  • Hey, like clockwork, the YFs show up when the lead arrives.

    SF July 18, 2007, 9:40 pm
  • Jorge ks on the 3-2 curve. Robi up. Last night Downs k’ed him with 6 straight curves.

    YF July 18, 2007, 9:40 pm
  • Or when our sons fall asleep.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2007, 9:43 pm
  • Robi walks on a fastball. Crazy.

    YF July 18, 2007, 9:44 pm
  • Robi not swinging. That must be Bizarro Robi, not our Robi.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2007, 9:44 pm
  • Loaded for Phillips. In comes Brandon League. Best name in the game.
    AP singles thru the left side! AP cannot be stopped! Alex and Matsui score! 4-1.

    YF July 18, 2007, 9:47 pm
  • Wow, what a catch by Johnson there, robbing Melky of a double.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2007, 9:47 pm
  • Reed Johnson brilliant play over his shoulder on a first pitch scorched by Melky.
    Damon out 6-4fc to end things.

    YF July 18, 2007, 9:48 pm
  • going to have to disagree there, YF.
    Yuniesky Betancourt is the best name in the game.
    back to my paper

  • Rivera making an early appearance.

    Rob July 18, 2007, 10:03 pm
  • Rios down swinging. Huge.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2007, 10:09 pm
  • Jorge adds some insurance.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2007, 10:23 pm
  • Now Robi with a little more; 6-1 Yanks.

    attackgerbil July 18, 2007, 10:29 pm
  • winning is so much more fun than losing

    dc July 18, 2007, 10:34 pm
  • I disagree with both of you: that pitcher named “Balfour” has the best name in the game!

    Andrews July 18, 2007, 11:03 pm
  • Winning IS better! Only 6 out of the WC, 7 back of the Sox, who seem to have a .44 Magnum aimed directly at their collective foot.
    Still, needing Mo to get the last five outs with a five-run doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the bullpen. Brian, how are the “Get rid of Krazy Kyle” discussions going?

    nettles-yf July 18, 2007, 11:18 pm
  • Rivera has now pitched in 4 out of the last 5 games. At this rate, he’ll be injured by mid-August.
    The Yankees seriously need a real bullpen arm, or they’re simply going to be toast. No matter how much their luck makes up for itself for the first half.

  • Just got back from the game. Damn ARod for padding his stats in a 5 run game.. =P
