Notes:

Jaret Wright was just terrible, giving up 11 hits and 8 runs in just 3 innings!

The rest of the Yankee pitchers ( Villone, Proctor, Childers, and Mendoza) were great...

The Yankee bats were on fire today, collecting 15 hits, 8 runs, and 5 home runs ( 2 Jones, Thompson, Crosby, and Duncan)...

Posada continues his hot hitting, batting at .529...

The Yankees were down 9-1 and battled back to 9-3. In the ninth, the Yankees scored 5 more runs, but came up just short...

  • Gah. I remember when Jarod Wright was awsome for the indians durring the playoffs. That was his rookie year, and he's come down a long way since.
