The Yankees recieved another solid outing by their ace, Mike Mussina, who went 6 innings and gave up only three runs ( in the third inning). Mussina left the game with the lead, but the New York bullpen could not hold on. Proctor gave up a game-tying run, and Kyle Farnsworth served up a three-run home run to Angel Berroa in the eighth inning.

Derek Jeter's infield single in the fourth inning was the 2,000th hit of his career. He became the youngest Yankee ever to record 2,000 hits ( beating Lou Gehrig by a couple of days). Alex Rodriguez went 3 for 4 with two singles, a double, and a run batted in.
