Yankees 8 10 1
Braves 4 8 2

WP: Chamberlain (4-2)
LP: Medlin(2-3)
S: Rivera (16)...remember him?

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Joba Chamberlain. He did what he was supposed to do and kept the Yankees in the game. He looked like the future ace he is supposed to be and he had control, good velocity (93-94) and his breaking pitches were working.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Frankie Cervelli's home-run. It officially resurected the Yankees bats from the dead and it broke up a perfect-game, which would have been devastating.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Girardi's ejection. Way to get the team fired up. After Gardner was picked off (which he was safe on) Girardi got ejected farguing the call and the team responed well. The Yankees went on to score 4 runs that inning immediately following it, starting with Cervelli's homer.


  • Braves starter Kenshin Kawakami left the game after the third when he was struck by a line drive in the neck off the bat of Joba Chamberlain. he is listed day-to-day.
  • The Michael Kay jinx prevails again, as he killed both a perfect game, no-hitter, and the Yankees hitless streak all in one inning.
  • Mariano Rivera's appearance was his first since June 16. Yikes.
  • If you want to see a sick action movie, go see Transformers 2. It was a tad bit too long, but it was awesome nonetheless. I'd advise watching the first one beforehand, so you see the characters develop, and to see if you would want to see the second.

That's it for tonight...See Ya!
