The captain blasted his 199th home run last night to give the Yankees the lead over the pesky Astros. Veras threw two strong innings and I think he overtook Farnsworth role as the 8th inning man. Since Mariano pitched five of the pervious six days the Yankees had to bring the Farns and he got his first save since 2006. Now the Yankees are 2 games over .500 and are sitting in third place.
