Yanks Pick up Big Win Against Jays
By mvyb, 10:33

Blue Jays- 1, Yankees- 5
 
Jaret Wright can be counted on to do one thing for this team- pitch five mediocre/ok innings. I was glad to see him throw more then 100 pitches ( for the first time this season), hopefully, it's a sign that Torre will make him go a little longer in the coming ballgames. But heck, he only allowed one run on 5 hits and one walk against a very powerful lineup. Not bad. Not bad at all.
 
Villone, Over-Used, and Farnsworth pitched the 6-9th innings. Villone struggled just a bit in the seventh ( he almost had his head cleaved off by a line drive back to the mound). And Mr. Over-Used almost blew the ballgame- Frank Catalanotto missed a game-tying homer by about 5 feet.
 
Five runs isn't always enough, but today it was. Alex Rodriguez's RBI double tied the game at 1, and Bernie cleared the bases with a three-run double to give the Yanks a permanent lead. Abreu, in his first game with the Yanks, went 0 for 3, but had a huge 10-pitch, at-bat in the fourth inning where he walked to load the bases. He got a nice hand by the New York crowd ( as did A-Rod), and he was greeted warmly by Sheffield. Analysts had feared that Sheff might hold some ill-feelings at Abreu (seeing that Abreu did take his job), but that was not the case (thank goodness!) 
 
Oh, and the BoSox lost... no dramatic comeback by that monster DH they have. So the Yanks and Sox are now tied on top of the AL East ( actually if you look at the percentage points, the Yankees lead by .002)  And, at this moment, the New York Yankees are the second best team in baseball (after Detroit). A pretty big transition from last year at this time.
 
Yankee Player of the Game: Bernie Williams
