Yanks 8, Jays 7

In what was most likely his last chance as a starter [1] for New York, Esteban Loaiza [2] was awful once again but the Yankees scored enough runs to come away with a win. Phew. (Or is the P-U?) I know it is not nice to call a professional useless, but that is pretty much what Loaiza has been as a Yankee. Tom Gordon was forced into the game when the middle relief couldn’t hold a four-run lead (he earned the save [3]). The Yankees walked eleven times and Derek Jeter, Hideki Matsui, and Bernie Williams added homers. The Bombers remain five-and-a-half ahead of the Sox who won again (Boston [4] has won ten or their last eleven already).

Jason Giambi [5] took some swings off a tee yesterday in Florida. Perhaps there is a chance he will make it back this season after all. Giambi’s saga continues…
