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


The substitude Yankee bats were alive and well Friday night behind Andy Pettitte who is now 3-0 in the young season.

Pettitte didn’t need much help, but he got plenty in New York’s 9-4 series-opening win over the Blue Jays in front of 40,028 at Rogers Centre on Friday.   Former Blue Jays Lyle Overbay, hit a solo homer to center field in the sixth inning to make it a 6-1 game. Catcher Francisco Cervelli followed up with a ground-rule double to right that chased Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow who has seemed to turn into Phil Hughes.

Morrow lasted 5 1/3 innings, surrendering seven runs — five earned — on nine hits and saw his ERA balloon to 5.57.

Sweet Revenge

Vernon Wells, who broke into the big leagues with the Blue Jays and played in Toronto for 12 years, answered a stadium full of fans who were booing him by adding a solo homer of his own in the seventh, his fourth of the year, off reliever Brett Cecil to put New York in front, 9-3.
