Randy Johnson was just deplorable Tuesday night, giving up 7 runs on 5 hits and 5 walks. He left the game in the fourth inning after throwing 92 pitches. Aaron Small and Tanyon Sturze were equally bad ( giving up 7 more runs). Ron Villone was the only Yankee pitcher who did not allow a run to score.

The Yankee defense was terrible- Alex Rodriguez failed to come up with a ball cleanly which led to three unearned runs in the fourth inning, Melky Cabrera ( called up to replace the injured Sheffield) dropped a fly ball which led to two more unearned runs in the fourth, and A-Rod made another fielding error in the fifth inning which led to one more unearned run.

The Yankees placed Gary Sheffield on the disabled list due to a wrist injury. Melky Cabrera was called up from AAA to replace him in right field.

Bernie Williams was ejected from the game after arguing with the home plat umpire over a called strike-three. Williams' struck out three times in the game.

The one bright spot was Jason Giambi's 11th home run of the year, off of Josh Beckett in the first inning. Melky Cabrera added an RBI single later in the 5th inning.
