Randy Johnson pitched very well today, but was haunted by some sloppy defense- an error by Cano led to two Phillidelphia runs. Johnson pitched 7 innings, and struck out 7, walking only 2.

The Yankee offense continues to struggle, tonight's problems were due to the fact that they were facing crafty pitcher, Brett Myers. The Yankees as a team left 13 men on base- Cano left five (striking out and grounding out with runners on), Posada left 3 ( popping up with the bases loaded), and Rodriguez left two ( striking out with two runners in scoring position). Jason Giambi hit a monstrous home run to the upper deck in left field; Giambi also singled twice.
