Mussina Goes the Distance

What would have been Mike Mussina's 24th career shutout, turned out to be a complete game victory.
Alex Rodriguez allowed Detroit Tiger Placido Polanco to advance on third on a routine throw to first, but threw it too low and allowed the runner to advance to second. The next batter, Magglio Ordonez, spoiled Mussina's bid on the shut out with an RBI triple. Statistically, Moose is credited with a shut out since the run was unearned due to A-Rod's throwing blunder.
Jorge Posada put the Yankee son the board in the first with an RBI single and built up a 6-0 lead with two more runs in the eighth and ninth inning.
Yankees remained tied for first with their fifth straight win.

Final Score:
Yankees 6, Tigers 1
