Randy Johnson was most awful in tonight's game- he only lasted through four innings and gave up three home runs. Two of the home runs were given up to batters who hadn't homered once yet this season! All in all, Johnson gave up 6 runs on 6 hits and 5 walks. The relief pitching for the Yankees was very good- Small went three scoreless innings, Farnsworth pitched the eighth, and Rivera shut out the A's in the ninth.

New York was down by four in the bottom of the seventh inning, but after an hour-long rain delay, the Yanks climbed back with a three-run homer by Giambi and an RBI triple by Cano.

Derek Jeter returned to the Yankee lineup as the designated hitter. He is expected to return to the shortstop position in a couple days.
