Yankees Drop A Tough One

The Yankees dropped a tough one today vs. the Tribe. Pavano pitched well. That about describes the luck the Yankees had. Teixeira, the only one who did damage vs. Pavano, extended his season-high hitting streak to 13 games and had four RBIs. He hit a two-run homer, his 16th, in the 6th.

  • The Indians won for the seventh time in their last 10 home games.
  • Jhonny Peralta won the game with his third career walk-off hit. He had three RBIs against the Yankees after having just one in his seven previous starts.
  • Mark Teixeira had four RBIs, giving him 34 for the month. That's the second most he had in a month in his career (35 in September 2005). His 219 homers in his first seven seasons are tied with Todd Helton, Hank Aaron and Joe DiMaggio for 11th-most.
  • Yankees RHP Joba Chamberlain is scheduled to start Monday night. It would be his first appearance in Cleveland since the 2007 AL division series when he was bombarded by a swarm of bugs.
  • Jeter has batted .397 (25-for-63) during a 14-game hitting streak.
