Yanks Avoid Sweep Behind Giambi

Sweep? Hell no!
Yankees scored six time in Brad Radke's six innings of ball. Giambi attacked first with a two-run shot to start the second followed by an RBI single by Robinson Cano.
Going into the fifth, Cano hit his first home run of the season followed by back-toback doubles by Derek Jeter and Gary Sheffield giving the Yankees a 5-0 lead.
The Twins scored a couple times in the fifth to cut the lead to three, but in the sixth, Giambi hit a solo shot that knocked Radke out of the game.
The Yankees still weren't done.
Alex Rodriguez capped a three-run seventh with a two-run shot to give the Yankees a surmountable lead.
Starter Chein-Ming Wang pitched a great game striking out eight without allowing a single walk.
Yankees improve to 6-6 and face the Blue Jays next in Toronto.

Player of the Game:
Jason Giambi went 3-4 with two home runs and eight RBIs.

Up Next:
Randy Johnson takes on Gustavo Chacin.

    Hi There:

    I can see that you got the problem fixed with the green background and the blue colored fonts. It looks great now.

    I have one small suggestion. In your posts you do not indicate the final score of the game. For example, today the Yankees won, but what was the final score?

    Your post indicates, "Alex Rodriguez capped a three-run seventh with a two-run shot to give the Yankees a surmountable lead."

    If you would include this information, I will have the whole picture of the game.

    Thanks a lot and great blog. I'm sorry that Mariano lost his first game, but that's how the game is played, lose some, win some.
