    Five of seven Yankee runs came with two outs. To me, the biggest RBIs were Cervelli's, taking it from 1-0 to 3-0 in the 4th, and Teixeira's driving in Gardner, ensuring that Gardner's lead-off triple did not get wasted.

    Nice piece at LoHud by Chad Jennings on Cervelli's growing confidence at the plate. What a difference his development as a decent stick would make. Clearly Jorge's bat and power are superior, but Cervelli's being a serviceable fill-in makes days like yesterday a real treat--calling a great game from Pettite, and making a bottom of the order that looked weak on paper a surprising strength. They didn't miss a beat with Cisco, they got a win, great pitching and fill-in productivity, and Jorge got to rest.

    Pena had a good day in the field as well as at the plate, making a great diving stop at third. Ace glove.

    Take the rubber game today, Yanks.
