One Inning

Abreu, 3-run HR
Cano, rbi single
Matsui, rbi single
Jeter, bases full walk
Abreu, 3-run double

Bobby tied the record for most rbi in the first inning (yes, there's a record for everything). What's interesting is that despite scoring 12 runs, only 1 Yankee had more than 2 hits, Matsui. It was some first game back for him, 4 hits and a walk.

I don't understand how Jeter's hit streak is still intact. I know he didn't have an official at-bat, but he did have a game without a hit. Doesn't that end the 'consecutive games with a hit' streak? Apparently not, but I'm not going to argue.

Mussina looked good, but he usually does against over-aggressive teams like Tampa Bay.

12-4 Yanks (Magic Number 9)
