LP: Greg Aquino (1-1) 1.1 IP, 1 H, 4 ER, 4 BB, 1 K

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Joba Chamberlain. Joba’s performance speaks for itself. Mike Francesa will need to find something else to talk about for six hours tomorrow.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Joba’s diving catch and double play on Kelly Shoppach’s failed bunt attempt helped shut down an Indians rally. That play turned a two-on, no one out situation into a man on first with two outs.

TURNING POINT: Nick Swisher’s two-run double in the seventh gave the Yankees the lead, and Joba took care of the rest.

The Yankees set the record for errorless games with 18 by going without an error tonight.
Joba Chamberlain set a career high for innings pitched tonight. His previous high was 7 IP.
Derek Jeter extended his hitting streak to 15 games, while Mark Teixeira extended his to 14 games.
The Yankees finished this road trip at 5-2 and have won 6 of their last 7 series.

(speaking of Wally Pipp)
“Wally Pipp lost his job to Lou Gehrig because he sat out a game with a headache. That’s why I never sit out with headaches, you never know who’s waiting.”

On the night that we launch a blog called Michael Kay’s Successors, Michael Kay says this. Yeah, it’s destiny.

See Ya!
