Roger Clemens pitched a complete game for the first time in three years, and the Yankees shut out the World Champs, 8-0 last night in Anahiem; he allowed five hits.. Clemens is 29-8 against the Angels during his career. I didn’t stay up to watch any of it, but I sure was a happy camper riding to work this morning. Jason Giambi had two doubles, two walks, a homer (30), and three RBI (83). Hideki Matsui hit his 33rd double of the year and added 3 RBI (77) of his own. Joe Torre gave Lil’ Sori the night off. Derek Jeter lead off, and Bernie batted behind him in the two-hole.
The Yankees gained a game on Boston, who fell to the Rangers, 9-2. Former Yankee, Ramiro Mendoza was pounded. The Sox dropped relief pitcher Chad Fox. Alex Rodriguez also made some news intimating that he would entertain any trade offers that come up now, or next year. Or did he?
