Randy Johnson really pitched well tonight, allowing only four hits and walking no one. Johnson was ejected in the seventh inning after throwing at Eduardo Perez in retaliation for Jason Johnson's throwing at Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada ( who was hit in the back). It was great to see Johnson backing up his teammates, especially Jorge Posada who he has had some conflicts with. The Yankee bullpen did its job, shutting down the Tribe for the following innings.

Johnny Damon hit his 8th home run of the year, and Andy Phillips hit his fifth, a two-run shot in the sixth. Robinson Cano had three hits and an RBI, and the captain had two hits and a run scored. Every Yankee starter had at least one hit in the game.
