Where Yankee Fans And Their Bomber Buddies Come To Talk Baseball...

Yankees Sweep Blue Jays

It is a good thing we swept the Blue Jays now because next time around I suspect they are going to be a whole lot tougher.  The Jays tried to salvage the game with formet Met/CyYoung Winner R.A.Dickey on the bump but the Yankees held in there until he gave up the lead and took the game and swept the series 3-2 in 4 games.

Brennan Boesch homered in the second and Lyle Overbay sent a knuckleball from R.A. Dickey into the right field bullpen for a go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh inning in the Bomber Victory.

These no-name Yankees are making a name for themselves and guess what they are playing like a team.

Phil Hughes allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings with a season-high nine strikeouts and one walk. Toronto ran up his pitch count, fouling off 25 of 111 offerings.
