Mussina Shines in Yankees Win

Welcome back Moose!
Mike Mussina took the mound against the Blue Jays earlier this evening and dominated. Seven strike outs, zero walks, one run and a W in the win column.
Of course a little offense helps too.
Alex Rodriguez hit his fifth ome run of the season and his 435th of his illustrious career in the fifth inning giving the Yankees an early one-run lead. Hideki Matsui added another run while Jorge Posada was deciding which base to go to in a run down. Matsui scored before the tag was applied to Posada.
Kyle Farnsworth relieved Mussina and pitched a great couple innings before handing the ball to Mariano Rivera who closed out the ninth earning his second save for the season.
Final score: Yankees 3, Blue Jays 1

Player of the Game:
Mike Mussina pitched 7 1/3 innings, struck out seven, no walks and one run earned.

Up Next:
Chein-Ming Wang (1-0 4.08 ERA) vs. Kris Benson (1-2 3.32 ERA)

Red Sox Update:
Don't want to talk about it, still playing and having a huge lead due to a complete lack of Tampa Bay defense.
