Yanks 6, Angels 2

Awww, Bacon

Derek Jeter [1] lead off the game last night and blooped a single to center off of big Bartolo Colon. On television, you could see the Yankee dugout in the background when Jeter [2] reached first. Though he was not in focus, Joe Torre was smiling. (A bloop, a bloop, my kingdom for a bloop.) Bernie Williams followed with a sharp single up the middle; Jeter [3] moved to third and scored on Alex Rodriguez’s sacrifice fly.

Two innings later, Jeter [4] smashed a solo homer off Colon. Later, Hideki Matsui added a two run homer, and Jorge Posada contributed a two-run double, which proved to be more than enough for Mike Mussina, who is regaining his form [5]. (This was his fourth consecutive win.) The Yankees won [6] another series, taking two of three from an injury-depleted Anahiem team. Next stop: Texas [7], where the boo-boids eagerly await the return of Alex Rodriguez. Jack Curry [8] and John Harper [9] anticipate Rodriguez’s arrival.

The Yanks budged back into first by a half-a-game as Derek Lowe [10] and the Sox were pounded [11] in Tampa by the Rays, 9-6.

Finally, as Mariano Rivera approaches his 300th career save, the Times [12], Post [13] and Newsday [14] offer puff pieces the Yankees’ great closer.
