Game 21: Yankees win 8-6 over the Tigers

Well, the bullpen sure made that more interesting than necessary. However, the Yankees were able to hold on to the lead and win the ball game by the score of 8-6. Joba pitched a great 7 innings, he gave up 1 run on 3 hits, and he had 6 strikeouts. Albaladejo came in in the 9th and allowed 2 runs (to this point), he was only able to record 2 outs so Mariano came in for the last out, but first he gave up a three run home run (two runners were courtesy of Albie, so he actually allowed 4 earned runs).Then Rivera got the last out, to end the game. Here is the box score from Yahoo Sports:
