Yankees 10 Blue Jays 8

Sunday, July 5, 2009

Well, it was a long day at the Stadium and I am exhausted but here is the recap:

Blue Jays 8 12 1
Yankees 10 14 2

WP: Albaladejo (3-1)
LP: B. Ryan (1-1)
S: Aceves (1)

PLAYER OF THE GAME: El Capitan, Derek Jeter. Jeter went 4-5 scoring 3 runs and hit the go-ahead 2 run home-run to put the Yankees ahead 9-8 in the 5th inning.

PLAY OF THE GAME: The aforementioned home run by Derek Jeter. The Yankees were trailing by 4, then cut the lead to 8-7 and the Captain's blast put them ahead and proved to be the game-winner.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Hideki Matsui's 3-run home run in the 4th. Joba and Cody Ransom helped make a 4-0 lead turn into an 8-4 deficit, but Godzilla, who has been red-hot lately, closed the game within one run, and put the Yankees right back in the game.


  • Joba, Joba, Joba. Thank God there is a day game tommorow so I don't have to listen to Francesa say he should be in the pen. I have been a Joba as a starter person, but the more and more inconsistent, poor starts he makes, the less valid the argument of him being a starter becomes.
  • Alfredo Aceves. Maybe he should start? He has been nothing short of terrific out of the pen this season, and today he once again showed how valuable he is. Aceves threw three shutout innings to end the game, keeping the Blue Jays offense quiet and picking up his first career save.
  • For those keeping track, Nick Swisher has changed his batting intro music from Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight, back to Soulja Boy's Turn My Swag On. We are 100% sure he only had In the Air Tonight because he saw The Hangover.
  • The game was about 4 hours long, so as we exited otu Gate 8 they were giving away free ice cream to the fans. I never saw anything like this before leaving a game at Yankee Stadium, so it's nice to see them treat their fans like this for sticking out a 4-hour marathon in the heat.
