Athletics 3 4 1
Yankees 8 12 1

WP: Chamberlain (6-2)
LP:Anderson (5-8)

PLAYER OF THE GAME; Joba Chamberlain. Joba was able to go seven innigns for the second straight outing and gave up 1 run on 2 hits and struck out 6.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Jorge Posada's eighth inning home-run. You don't see Posada hit too many home-runs you would consider bombs, but this one ended up about 5 rows back in the left field bleachers. It also took the A's out of the game and made it 5-1.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Bottom of the third inning. The Yankees were able to manufacture two runs in order to take the lead by playing some fundamental baseball. Jeter hit an RBI single ro right to tie it, and Damon was able to bring in a run on an RBI groundout.


  • Of course Joba will start pitching well once discussion of Joba's innings limit rises. It'll be interesting how the Yankees handle Joba down the line if he keeps pitching well.
  • Nice to give the bullpen a break in this one. The Yankees have won every game during their streak by 3 runs or less, so it was a bit of a relief (no pun intended) to have a blowout to rest our top arms in the pen.
