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.

YANKEE DOODLES: Yankees 3B-1B Kevin Youkilis was sidelined by a bad back for the sixth time in seven games and will have an MRI Monday. … … Yankees CF Brett Gardner was left out of the starting lineup for the first time this season. He entered the game as a defensive replacement in the eighth. … Yankees just drew 32,000 today.

CERVELLI, NOVA HURT

  • The Yankees report Cisco Cervelli’s injury is a fractured right hand and will require surgery. He will miss a minimum of six weeks. Cervelli suffered the injury when he was hit by a foul top off the bat of Toronto’s Rajai Davis in the top of the first inning.
  • Ivan “No Go” Nova left tonight’s game in the third inning with right elbow pain. He has been scheduled for a MRI tonight.  He was replaced by David Phelps who may have inadvertently landed him self a starter’s role.
  • Austin Romine coming up to take Cervelli’s roster spot.

TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW

Derek Jeter said that it has been “difficult” and “frustrating” to remain on the disabled list with an injured left ankle while his team plays, but he vowed to rejoin the lineup this season.  After all the hype and build up, after all the stupid questions, that about wraps it up.

Oh yeah and the Yanks beat Toronto 5-3
