Well well well, what can I say? The night after Jose Bautista hit 2 home runs and absolutely showed off; mocking Cervelli by fist pumping; and then came at Nova with a bat, thus causing a near brawl; the Yankees repaid him. How, you ask? They did so by scoring 11 runs on 17 hits and keeping the homer happy Blue Jays, homerless.
Mark Teixeira started the scoring by having an RBI single in the first, but he wasn't over. After Nunez got an RBI groundout to score Jorge Posada, Teixeira came up again and he went DEEP to left to make the score 3-0 Yanks. Robinson Cano followed up with a walk, bringing up Thames; who would also hit a home run to left, where 4 of the 5 Yankees bombs went. Jorge Posada, (4-5 with 2 RBI's) hit a home run making the game just about out of reach (at 6-0).
The Jays tacked on a run in the bottom of the inning, but the Yankees would finish off Toronto in the top of the 5th. Curtis Granderson's 3-run home run would be the main cause of this, with the only Yankee home run anywhere else but left field (right). Derek Jeter, (yeah, he can still hit them out of the park) hit his 10th home run of the year making it 10-1 Yanks, and putting the Yankees on course for their 78th win of the year.
Dustin Moseley, who has been a good temporary replacement for Andy Pettitte, went 6 innings and only gave up 2 runs. Chad Guadin, who has been better lately, gave up 3 runs on 4 hits. Kerry Wood (what a good acquisition for the Yanks) threw a perfect 9th striking out 2.
The Yankees are still tied for the AL East lead and have banished Javeir Vasquez to the bullpen, puting Ivan Nova in his place in the rotation, and he will start on Sunday.
