In other news, the Yankees held a Kangaroo Court today. For two months, the Yankees have been handing in "clubhouse infractions" that were brought to trial today. It's kind of funny to hear what the players were "charged" for. Mo was the judge, while Jeter, Burnett, and Damon sat on jury duty. Give it a read.
And the Streak Goes to 8...
The Yankees played more good baseball tonight as their winning streak runs to 8 games. Phil Hughes pitched well, going 5 IP with 3 ER and 9 Ks. The 9 Ks in 5 innings is very impressive. The "bridge to Mariano" was made up of Aceves and Coke, and they combined for 2.2 and no runs. On the offensive side, the Yankees had a big game. They scored 11 runs, including a 6 run seventh. Swisher, Cano, and Cabrera went back to back to back in the second inning. Cano had the biggest day, going 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs. The Yankees only left 7 men on in tonight's game, which is an impressive stat. The Yankees are really starting to mesh. The pitching staff has only given up 24 runs in the last 8 games. The offense has really begun to show up, scoring 52 runs in the last 8. The Yankees are finally playing to their potential, and they should only get better as Wang and Posada return.
