Soriano Shines in Win
Andy Pettitte has officially turned the corner after a horrible two months earlier in the season and delivered one of the best performances he has given all season long. Pettitte lasted seven full innings, allowing no runs on only five hits. He struck out three batters and walked two. Adam Warren would eat the final two innings to save their bullpen so they could unload all of their weapons before an off-day on Thursday. This was an important win for the Yankees because by winning this game they still have a chance to take the series in Toronto against a pitiful Blue Jays team that has been underwhelming all season long. With the talent on the team, the Toronto Blue Jays should not be in last place. However, with a shaky bullpen and an often injured starting lineup, it is troublesome to find a way to win games.
The Yankees will send their best to the mound tomorrow evening to face the Blue Jays. The Yankees are feeling good about themselves after blasting four homers in tonight's win. What gives you even more confidence is that Alex Rodriguez is beginning to find his power stroke which will come in handy against a crucially important series against the Orioles this upcoming weekend.
