RIDING THE ROCKET

Posted By Alex Belth On July 31, 2003 @ 1:26 pm In Bronx Banter | Comments Disabled

Roger Clemens pitched a complete game for the first time in three years, and the Yankees shut out the World Champs, 8-0 [1] 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 [2] 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 [3]. Former Yankee, Ramiro Mendoza [4] was pounded. The Sox dropped relief pitcher Chad Fox [5]. Alex Rodriguez [6] also made some news intimating that he would entertain any trade offers that come up now, or next year. Or did he? [7]
