"I Got It!"

The Yankees finally end their losing skid with a nice 10-5 victory over the Blue Jays featuring a milestone and some controversy.

Johnny Damon, two hits away from 2,000, hit a solo home run in the first, and a base hit in the second, bringing him to the milestone in front of a silent crowd.

The Yankees scored five runs in the first and saw Toronto come back to bring it to a one run, 6-5 score late into the game.

In the ninth inning, with Mariano Rivera already in the game, the Yankees set out for a four-run rally sparked by a little cntroversy.

As Alex Rodriguez was advancing to third base on a routine pop up, he shouted to the third baseman "I got it!". Almost like a rookie move, the fielder stopped dead in his tracks and let the ball fall keeping the rally alive.
Jays third baseman, Howie Clark, called foul and tried to argue his point to the officials. The fans booed in agreement that A-Rod had said something to the effect to cause the miscue, but to no avail, the call stood. A-Rod later went on to score on a Jason Giambi hit, and the Yankees end their losing skid with a much needed victory.

Yankees head into Boston this Friday for a three game series which will not feature Roger Clemens.
He is expected to make his first start on Monday against the White Sox.

    He didn't say "I got it." He said "Ah that's it," I believe. Two wildly different things. Players have never been silent on the basepaths.

    Even A-Rod's own manager had less than great things to say about the play. Players simply don't do stuff like that. A-Rod's not an intense guy and he often makes himself look foolish trying to pretend to be one.

    Lots of excellent info and i really injoy your site so i was wondering if you would like to exchange links i just started a web forum called sportsgator.com all sports all the time. The reason for this is that i am a 31 year old male living in BC Canada i have a wife 12 year old twin daughters and a son who's 7 i recently fell at work 30 feet and am going out of my mind with time on my hands so i started this forum. This is not a sob story......well maybe it is, but its real and if we exchange links possible we could send more traffic to each other.
