Yankees 3, Blue Jays 2 — two in a row over  Toronto

The Yankees got a dominant performance from CC Sabathia tonight in their victory over the Blue Jays. Sabathia gave up 2 runs on 5 hits, including a home run,over 8 innings. Good thing too, considering that the Yankees could only score 3 runs. The only Yankee who had more than one hit tonight was Francisco Cervelli, who had 2 hits. The Yankees left 18 runners on base, and were behind until Derek Jeter’s single in the 7th inning enabled Brett Gardner to score and tie the game. Hideki Matsui’s home run in the 8th inning proved to be the game winner.

Good to see 2 straight wins against a division opponent, particularly the opponent that’s currently in first place. The Yankees are now 4-1/2 games behind Toronto. Maybe the Yankees can pull this season together after all.

EDIT: I wonder why the word ” w h o p p ing” was edited? I had posted “The Yankees left a w h o p p ing 18 runners on base” and got an error message..

    The obscenity filter here is definitely strange!

    LMAO @ Jenn! Too funny! Mind you, I would suggest that “Joel Hanrahan” be considered a bad word……
    Oooh Jane, I’ve gotta check that out!
