Game 81: Yankees 10, Blue Jays 8

The Mexican Gangster was amazing for the Yankees today.

The Mexican Gangster was amazing for the Yankees today.

I’m not going to have a long recap this time. The story of the game was Alfredo Aceves, but I’ll get to him a little later. As you know, Joba Chamberlain started this game, and through 2 innings he didn’t look that bad, although he was getting into deep counts. The third inning was a different story, he gave up 3 runs. Then things got even worse in the 4th, Joba gave up 5 runs and could not get out of the inning, making way for Jonathan Albaladejo who was recalled earlier today. Albaladejo went a scoreless 1.1 innings. Enter Alfredo Aceves. When Aceves came in the 6th, most people didn’t think he was going to finish off the game. But he proved them wrong, throwing shutout ball for 4 innings, and picking up the save as the Yankees won 10-8.

On the offensive side, the big hit was a 2 run home run by Derek Jeter which came at a time when the Yankees were down 8-7. Hideki Matsui also helped the offense, picking off 4 RBI’s, three coming off a homer. Jorge Posada had three RBI’s one day after his big walk-off hit.

  1. This was an offensive game today!! Cody Ransom booted a ball in the fourth inning today!! A-Rod got the day off!! The Yankees are now 48-33 at the 81 game mark and one game behind the Boston Red Sox in the A.L. East standings!! I was at the game but at least I saw a win but I admit I boo Joba Chamberlain after the game!!!

  2. Just to clarify when Joba Chamberlain was taken out of the game!! Is Sergio Mitre the Yankees starter on Thursday?
