Six and counting...

The bullpen and the bats gave the Yanks their sixth straight win, the longest streak of the year. Ty Clippard didn't fare well, but in his defense, he got squeezed out of two obvious strike threes - both batters that he proceeded to walk and came around to score. Yes, he should overcome that, but it's still just his fifth major league start, so he's still adjusting.

Abreu and Arod carried the offense, going a combined 6-7 with 3 walks, 8 runs and 8 rbi!

- Elsewhere, pitching prospect Joba Chamberlain was promoted to Double-A Trenton after posting great numbers at Tampa: 40 innings, 2.03 era, 51 strikeouts, 11 walks and a .181 batting average against. He was the 41st overall pick last year, and has a mid 90s fastball with a good slider and an improving changeup.
