Jason Giambi  led the Yankees  to a 10-3  thrasing over the Royals on a muggy summer day in the Bronx. Giambi went 3-3 with a walk, hit two home runs and collected seven RBI. Al Leiter  was, well, Al Lieter , and he pitched well enough to earn the win.
In all , it was a good home stand for the Bombers. The Red Sox  and the Devil Rays  (Cantu, Gomes  and company) completed a three-game sweep of the Angels. The A’s are now in first place in the AL West. The Yanks lead the wildcard by a half-a-game over the Angels and a complete game over the Indians . They trail Boston  by a game-and-a-half. The Red Sox  now have to deal with the streaking Devil Rays while the Yanks are off to the west coast this week. They’ve got four in Seattle , including a scintillating Wednesday night match-up featuring Randy Johnson and the young Felix Hernandez , which could be dubbed “The Once and Future King.” Then on Friday, they are off to Oakland for three against the A’s. Looks like Leiter, Mussina and Chacon will pitch in Oakland. It’s another important week for the Bombers as we move to September. The Yanks then return to face Tampa Bay  and then Boston. Crunch time.
