Yanks 5, Blue Jays 2

Both the Yanks  and Sox  lost on Monday  night . Emily and I watched the last half of the Boston game up at her folks place in Vermont. Jeez, I think I’ve created a monster. She was cursing Boston pretty good throughout the game.
I arrived back in the Bronx last night around the seventh inning and saw the Bombers defeat Toronto. I also caught the updates and highlights of Boston’s dramatic win against the Orioles . When all was said and done, the Yanks are still four-and-a-half games up.
Esteban Loiaza  earned his first victory since he was traded to New York, which also happens to be the 100th win of his career. Roy Halladay, making his first start in a long while, seemingly gave up a home run to Alex Rodriguez in the first. But Vernon Wells timed his leap beautifully and robbed Rodriguez of his 36th dinger of the year. Gary Sheffield , who missed Monday’s game after receiving two cortisone shots in his ailing left shoulder, followed and planted one in the left field upper deck, safely out of Gabe Gross’s reach. Jason Giambi  later hit a two-run homer to left-center, his first hit since returning from the DL.
El Duque and Ted Lilly square off tonight. If I’m not mistaken, it’ll be the fourth time they’ve matched up this year. Should be a good one.
