LF- Cabrera, 1-5 (1B, SB, R)

Yankee Pitchers:

Mike Mussina was incredible tonight; he kept the Tigers scoreless through the first 8 innings, but gave up an unearned run on an error by Alex Rodriguez. Mussina struck out 5 batters, walked only 1, and lowered his ERA to 2.42, second best in the league.

Jason Giambi and Alex Rodriguez really stepped up at the plate. Giambi doubled twice, scored two runs, and drove in another; Rodriguez tripled, singled twice, and drove in two runs.

Tomorrow, the Yanks go for the four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers, something they haven't accomplished in over 80 years.
