Yankees Come Back for Sweep
The hitting on this team has been timely and that counts more than compilers who hit to raise individual statistics. Lyle Overbay came up big today against Dickey with Hafner on first in the seventh inning to give the Yankees a permanent lead. Brennan Boesch also hit a home run early in the game to give the Yankees an early 1-0 lead. These players are coming up big in spots that count and every day it's someone different. Yesterday, Travis Hafner had a big day and today it was Boesch and Overbay. The Yankees now have a 15-9 record and a four game winning streak.
The Houston Astros come into Yankee Stadium for a three game set for their first visit to the Stadium as an American League team. The Astros are a horrid baseball team, coming off a sweep at the hands of the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees will try to do what the Red Sox did to the Astros and hope to have an extended winning streak. Andy Pettitte will get the start against Lucas Harrell tomorrow night.
