Yanks sweep; Venditte debuts

- A crisp 2-1 win over San Diego completed a three-game sweep and seven-game winning streak for the Bombers. Joba started and was dominant: he struck out nine in 5.2 innings, allowing just one run. As a starter (four games), he's been pretty filthy: 18.1 ip, 2.45 ERA, 16 h, 19 k, 12 bb, 1 HR. The only problem is the walks, which must come down.

- Pat 'Switch-Pitcher' Venditte made his pro debut last night for Staten Island. Take a gander at the video for a good laugh. It seems the rule is that the pitcher must first declare a side to throw from, then the batter (switch-hitter) can adjust to that, but once that first pitch is thrown, neither can change.
