Quick recap again today.
Robinson Cano went deep in the second to give the Yanks a 1-0 lead. The Jays tied it in the fourth on a double and a base hit. The Yanks got at Tallet in the fifth. Gardner and Jeter led off with walks, followed by a bunt single from Johnny Damon. Teix walked to plate Gardner. A-Rod grounded into a fielder's choice, forcing Jeter at home, then Damon scored on a passed ball. The Jays were lucky to get out of the inning down only two.
The Jays cut it to one with a Vernon Wells blast in the sixth, then A-Rod ran it back to a two run lead with a homer in the eighth.
A.J. Burnett had another great start, 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R/ER, 2 BB, 7 K. The Phils, Coke and Hughes, combined to work the eighth, and Mo closed it with a perfect ninth. The 4-2 victory was a nice 42nd birthday gift for Brian Cashman.
Back at it tomorrow.
